From the American Heritage Dictionary, excerpts of a 'non-scientific' definition of neutralization:
To counterbalance the effect of; make ineffective. A state of ineffectiveness, inaction or inoperativeness. To negate and nullify imply finality rather than a stalemate; they also imply loss incurred through the rendering of something [the targeted individual] useless or valueless.

Re: repeated hacking by fbi of my communications
Today I sent an explanation of the hacking of my submissions to OPEDNEWS. I just learned that my email to you dated and entitled as follows contained another hacked version of the report that I am trying to post at OPED:
dateFri, Sep 30, 2011 at 8:03 AM
subject: fbi hacking of my submissionmailed-bygmail.com
The email cited above was thoroughly hacked, but I was not aware of the hacking because the fbi tampered with my draft overnight and I did not realize that the report in the email was defective.
I have no computer because the fbi destroys any computer that I buy. I have limited access to a computer at the public library due to time limitations imposed by the library (usually 45 minutes-one hour).
The report (or article) that I am trying to publish at OPED deals with a pervasive and serious societal problem that I discovered after a decade of suffering at the hands of the fbi; so, I feel that many men especially need to be advised of the gross violations of their civil, human and constitutional rights as I outline in the report.

P.S. sorry Geral, we don't have time to sort this out. And your claims of FBI interception of your articles is not credible.
