It was probably more than a year ago when I wrote about the mobbers’ use of sound checks to ensure that harassment—likely from beam-focused sources like parabolic and parametric speakers—was audible to me in my bedroom. My bedroom remains a sound-board laden fortress, in which I deconstruct and reconstruct the battlements of acoustic board daily, if I can manage it, to ensure that this small northwestern house has ample time to breathe. And even as I tend my defenses, the real estate mobbers—speculators or tenant relocators—conduct soundchecks to ensure their access to me, to ensure that I cannot escape their verbal abuse.
This is done by pairing what the nasty neighborhood watch lady once referred to as “sensitive” microphones with parabolic or parametric speakers from the mobbing houses that flank my home—the victim home—in this gentrifying enclave of Seattle, afflicted by a corrupt neighborhood watch and overrun by speculators. As the mobbers flanking one side of my small house attempt to penetrate my battlements with focused sound, those flanking the other listen to ensure the verbal abuse is audible.
How do I know this? Because one day earlier in the mobbing when I was in my bedroom, a female mobber whose voice came from the north side of my house told a younger voice that sounded as though it was located to the south of my house, “She can’t hear you.” What she meant, was that she could not hear her partner. This meant that the verbal abuse was not audible in my bedroom, and would not be audible to me. And why must I explain? I explain for the same reason I began to write this blog, because getting help when you are being mobbed, I have learned, is a rhetorical feat. Because predatory tech crimes like mobbing rely on confusing the cops and discrediting any victims who cannot be otherwise compelled to give in to the crime. To use a programming term, mobbers are practiced at the art of indirection. Mobbing is a crime that is designed to be unbelievable, a crime for which the onus of proof falls on its victims, making it all the harder for them to survive a “reign of terror” at the hands of their “neighbors.”
On being mobbed is a start at looking at how neighborhood watches gone rogue, shady developers, and their small time speculator friends use abuse civil process and use technology—including cyber-crime—to harass legal residents from their homes without anyone being the wiser. Because On being mobbed documents an ongoing crime, readers have the opportunity to use the information written here to do the right thing and to help to make sure that crooks who harass people out of their homes in Seattle, in Washington, or anywhere in the United States, get prosecuted for it. If all goes well, we can help to stop this from happening to others by making sure the crooks don’t get away with having done it to me. After all, that’s not what we’re about in America. At least, we didn’t used to be.
And remember, it doesn’t matter if you have information because you know people who do what’s been done to me, because you’ve heard of other cases where it’s been done in this way, or because you have a deep enough understanding of the technology to know how it’s done. RenterHarassment.com is offering a $5,000 reward to the person who turns information over to the police that leads to prosecution of the Seattle real estate mobbers. I’d like to go back to living my life as I did before I was forced to live the life of a legal renter targeted by the nasty neighborhood watch of the northeast. Frankly, my dear, I’d rather be writing about something else.
And now, or perhaps tomorrow or the next day when I finally publish the missive, read on to learn more about mobbing sound and how to get the most out of the cheap “acoustic board” you can buy at Lowe’s. ▪
