Dismissal without prejudice means that the suit can be filed again. The suit lasted two days from the 7th to the 9th of December. The IndieGoGo fundraiser to fund it is still running.



At first glance, the below document is dated 21st October so it’s reasonable to assume that it is not related to the recent filing; however, apparently that date is incorrect. The correct date is in the footer, and this is indeed the dismissal of the recent filing and can be found on PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records).

The highlighted bit is probably expected, but certainly interesting to see written down (from the Star Frontiers Alive and Well FB group. Note, Tom's credibility is not, to me, in doubt.

Thanks much for posting this. I had been really curious about if the SFNG really existed.

What amazes me is how little effort TSR put into this attempt. When pressed, they couldn't answer the most basic questions about how many copies existed, page count, etc. They don't even list the authors on their website. I've seen people put more effort into creating fake Wikipedia pages.

I’ve seen more convincing Nigerian Prince/IRS/foreign lottery emails.

Sure. I thought it was relevant to the discussion and of interest.

I kind of want to attribute all this TSR stuff to ignorance, hubris, and incompetency. But the more I learn, the more I lean toward malfeasance and incompetency.

The grammar is too on point. Take out some periods, and change random words to capitalization, and make sure every fourth word is misspelled.

I mean ... when your grift can't even aspire to the level of Nigerian scam email because you lack a basic familiarity with English spelling and grammar ... maybe that's something to ponder?

They're less convincing than this scam letter I once received when I lived in North Hollywood, California. The letter told me that I had won the Mexican lottery, which I've never entered. I don't remember how many pesos it was, but in parentheses it had 300ish million USD. All I had to do to claim my winnings was send $20 to an address in Amsterdam. 🤦‍♂️
