After a recent comment on a blog post stating that the interview subject had deceived me significantly, I ran background checks on every person I wrote an article on that gave me their last names. Terrill Maduka has felonies for aggravated assault and child neglect. Johnathan Clark is a high-risk sex offender with arrests in Dallas for failure to register as a sex offender for the sexual assault of a 10-year-old girl. Any person who refused to give their last names I have removed because a background check could not be conducted.
I will now require first and last name when I interview you. If you refuse to declare your last name upfront, the interview will not be conducted. Additionally, an article will not be written unless you have cleared a background check even if you do provide your last name.
Your last names will be published from now on.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
