It's the classic case of the pot calling the kettle black, or perhaps the proverbial man in the glass house throwing stones...a registered sex-offender calling me a child molester. I may be a lot of things, but a diddler I am not. My criminal record contains an OUI from 1985, a couple of pot charges in the early 90's, and a white-collar tax crime that I committed over a decade ago...nothing even close to raping little boys. About 4 years ago, "someone" began hurling nasty accusations on Craigslist that I was a convicted sex offender, and I now know who it is and what his motive is; revenge. In 2009 I was publishing posts about a sick fuck on the Cape who had molested two young boys, and when he was realeased from prison he began a smear campaign against me in order to get even. His name is Richard Macaruso, and he prowls the Rhode Island Rants & Raves board (as well as the Cape Cod board) under various aliases such as "Inigo Montoya", and "Ant".  Mr. Macaruso refuses to come out of hiding, so I've written him a couple of "open letters" on Rants & Raves. Naturally, he flagged these posts instantly, so I've taken the time to "unflag" them and publish them below...
