Facebook: We Have Proof Ceglia's Contract Is Fake 178

An anonymous reader writes "Facebook says it has found the proof that shows Paul Ceglia, a man that claims he owns half of the company over a 2003 contract, is a fraud. Facebook says it has found the original 'authentic contract' between Zuckerberg and Ceglia."

    Isn't it interesting that whenever there's a new development in the "facebook chronicles", somebody "finds" some new documents? It's like this is some archeological expedition, and every now and then one of the people carefully excavating the digsite finds a piece of pottery and says "Hey guys! Look what I found! It's got writings on it!". Then facebook has to defend itself, so it sends its own archeologists to the deep dark dungeons of their corporate basement and they come back with a carbon-dated bit of clay with hieroglyphs on it -- "no, see, this is older than the piece you found, and it says the opposite!".

    At least we know this won't last forever. Just until Google+ turns facebook into myspace.

    Deity fucking shit, your country is in the deep end of shit and you care about the birth certificate of your elected leader?

    No wonder the U.S.A. is going nowhere fast.

    I guess a lot of Slashdot readers would like nothing better than to see Facebook fade away into history like MySpace, Geocities and whats-its-name. Since it's based in the USA, contracts and lawyers have a pretty good chance of making it happen.

    Obama produced a legitimate birth certificate back before he was elected. The problem was people refused to believe him or the State of Hawaii that it was legitimate because they couldn't accept that he might be elected as President for their own personal reasons. Even now some would rather believe in a huge conspiracy that everything has been faked rather than accept that he was legitimately elected.

    So it's a contract so confidential that it cannot be legally enforced?

    Not faith, hate. The entire birther "movement" is made up of folks so put off by the thought of a black man as president that they will cling to any shred of hope that he isn't "really" the president

    I don't see why people care about Facebook's legal battles anymore. It's not going to really change anything one way or another. Facebook wins, then there might be an appeal, if they lose there might be an appeal, and either way it's about money that none of us will ever see, and a decision that will not effect our lives in any way significant or insignificant.

    Under Jewish contract law, only one copy of any contract may be produced, and it must be written in an extremely strict, tamper-proof manner. This is intended to prevent just this type of contract-forgery claim.

    Ceglia is protecting himself from a tidal wave of bought credibility.

    If a facsimile of the authentic contract is released, Ceglia and his lawyer know that billions of dollars can buy a lot of witnesses and blood oaths that the contract was merely a unproven copy of one of the hundreds of decoys that Zuckerberg could reproduce --- right down to old Mrs. Crenshaw who taught him history in the third grade and was a decorated nurse who saved the lives of 12 people from a bombed schoolhouse in WW2.

    Ceglia is waiting to produce the original in court and demand Zuckerberg to admit signing it under the threat of perjury. Everything else Zuckerberg presents is a smoke show to avoid that moment. Then the fur will fly.

    Billions buys a lot of sworn testimony.

At work, the authority of a person is inversely proportional to the number of pens that person is carrying.
