In an earlier post I baited Mark Stokoe to see what he had that could possibly be so “damaging” to +Jonah. He took the bait and he (or one of his minions) hacked into Fr Joseph Fester’s computer somehow in order to come up with something. This is a serious charge. Many correspondents said that this is a criminal action. Commentators on OCAN pointed out the same thing. Stokoe bit and is now caught in a trap. What follows is damage control:*
Those look like e-mails sent between two people, not e-mails sent to multiple persons. Clearly neither person would have forwarded those e-mails to anyone else. So those are not leaked e-mails but stolen e-mails. How sad that its come to this.
(Editor’s note: I appreciate and share your outrage. However, your outrage is misplaced in this instance. These emails were indeed “leaked” to me, not stolen from the senders. I know this for a fact from my source, for I would not deal in stolen goods, and made that clear. What profit is there to gain the world, but lose your soul? No, the answer is very simple, and involves no hacking, stealing, or otherwise nefarious acquisition. It is up to my source to reveal the how-it-came-to-be to others, should he/she decide that is necessary. Until then I will not say more on the topic without their permission. You may choose not to believe me. Your choice. But when the truth is revealed – and I have no doubt that one day it will be please know I accept your apology for the aspersion. I realize it must be hard to accept. )

Stokoe provides an interesting interpretation of how he received the e-mails. He obviously knows that it would be illegal for him (or anyone) to “deal in stolen goods.” He categorically denies doing anything illegal at all — whether the act was perpetrated by him or by a third party. He is quite emphatic about it.
This is typical Mark: high-minded, moralistic, a trainload of self-assured sanctimony. It is also complete BS.
Take a look at the screen shots below. They were taken from Fr. Fester’s computer. They show forwarded emails from Fr. Fester’s gmail account (not the same thing as Fr. Fester’s computer) forwarded to Mark Stokoe. Note the gmail account, recipient, and the date the email was sent.
Now look at this one. Again, note the gmail account, recipient, and the date the email was sent.
I have a bone to pick with Fr Fester, however. Why wasn’t I included on his buddy list?
P.S. I will be accepting apologies from all of Stokoe’s groupies –at least any of them who have any integrity left–at this point.
*Due to grammatical and syntactical ambiguities which I made last nite because of sleepiness, I have updated the first paragraph. The P.S. I threw in because I felt especially snarky.
