I contributed to The Loose Canon, and I have not given my permission for my work to be published and sold in this way.
When the proper Second Edition of the Loose Canon is completed, it will be available free of charge as a pdf document, as per the original agreement with the authors.
Do not pay to buy this book.

Christopher S. Rowan wrote:Nor did you get permission from each and every author you left in. Or any, as far as I know. By US and international law, you MUST get permission from ALL authors. Not simply remove the works of those authors who find out you're stealing their work and object to it.
Amazon Customer wrote:More, you derived works submitted to another publisher/group.
I was not contacted for permission to make you money. Removing my works would be a step in the right direction, but utterly misses the point.
I did not donate my work to *you*, Mr. Whitfield. *you* stole my and other people's work. You did not ask. You did not look in advance, you stole, then said "hey, if they didn't want me to have it, they should complain!"
Russell Whitfield wrote:Just let me know what I can do to help. Thanks for your comments. Let me know before February 1, 2015.
Holy Noodle wrote:To help, you can do as requested by the Authors and the members of The Council Of The Olive Garden, the body responsible for the collation and distribution of The Loose Canon, immediately remove this unauthorised version from publication.
Russell Whitfield wrote:My contact information is readily available. My email works fine. The United States Postal Service still delivers mail to my house. My phone works fine. Please give me the information that I need. I can't work with a blanket statement like that. Who the heck is the Council of the Olive Garden? Is that even a real organization? If so, in what state are they organized? I can fix the problems but I can't fix the problems if you don't tell me what the problems are.
FYI: The works of StJason, Qwertyuiopasd and Rev. Dr. Jo Freddie are going to be removed on February 1, 2015 unless I hear otherwise from the alleged authors. As far as I'm concerned the Council of the Olive Garden is a fairy tale. If the Council of the Olive Garden were real then the Loose Canon Complete Second Edition would have never been published. Who is Holy Noodle?
Holy Noodle wrote:Look on the Loose Canon facebook page and you can see it announced that this is a fake.
Look in the official Flying Spaghetti Monster forum on venganza.org (From which you have been banned due to you actions in this matter) and you will find this publication denounced as a fake.
You have been told how to fix the problem over and over again, to fix it you need cease and desist.
Russell Whitfield wrote:Thanks for the help. I'll go check my email now. I'll also check the references that you suggested.
No new emails.
Nothing new has been posted on the Loose Canon page since November 4, 2014. I can't access the venganza forums unless you can help me with that.
Either way I do greatly appreciate all the new information that you have provided. I will certainly take it into consideration. :) May His sauce be upon you.
what the heck is he taking into consideration? what a douche bag! i'm glad that i came to this website. otherwise i would have never known all of this.
