Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet

I recently really, really needed to get someone’s phone number quickly. I ended up paying a few dollars for one of those websites that offer detailed information on people. I got the phone number and “unlimited” use of the service for a month. So I asked for information on myself and a few other people of interest.

To the best of my knowledge most of the information was accurate. But there was one item that was really, really wrong.

According to this one service I am a ATF agent.

  1. “According to this one service I am a ATF agent.”

    So, can you fix the goddamned rules while you’re there?

    • If I had the power to do so I would go a couple steps further and disband the agency.

      If it needs to be regulated then let the states decide to do it.

      My complete “employment” history according to them:

      Agent
      ATF

      Rights Activist
      Second Amendment Foundation

      Media Specialist
      Boomershoot

      Libertynews.org

      Joe Huffman

      Senior Cyber Security Scientist

      Interesting that even when I was very public at certain places of employment, such as Microsoft, they don’t have a record of it.

  2. I might believe you worked for ATF if it was a one stop shopping department store and not a alphabet soup agency…

  3. Maybe their data crawler looked at the content of the blog and decided that someone that refers to the BATFE that much could only be working for them.

    Normal people don’t have cause to talk about the BATFE that much… which is a shame. Then again, if normal people did have cause to talk about the BATFE, they would very soon only talk about it in the past tense.
