Our Recent Decision
A week ago, our company made a very big decision that we knew would be controversial but right. Lets examine this for a moment. What is right? Well, I was brought up and taught that it is not right to take things without it’s owner’s permission. Thus, no matter how many times the government or someone else tells me its right (as in a tax), I still will not steal from others, because I know it is not right. I make many decisions based on this, including how much of our company profits are donated and how much is written in check form to our officers and owners as a bonus. Sure I pay my taxes, and my company does too, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t donate as much profit as possible to charity and tax-deductible non-profits so WE can choose how the money is spent before the government does.
Everyone is raised with this sense of right and wrong. Everyone knows what’s right and wrong and some people are more willing than others to blur lines in order to achieve their goals. There are still some of us that remains principled in the fact these “lines” serves us as a moral barriers — a wall we don’t cross unless we are ready to knock it down thereby allowing others to knock down other walls as well. Most of us agree that holding society responsible for a small group of people is wrong, yet some don’t think twice when casting disparagement on a group of people at a gun show. In these cases these people blur the line for an agenda and we believe this is wrong.
Last week, the Boy Scouts of America made a decision to repeal a ban on homosexual boys, a ban that applied only to the main program and not other programs such as the Explorers. This decision was reached by a group of adult leaders within the Boy Scouts. So far this seems harmless, and the way it is portrayed by the Boy Scouts Organization and the media it still remains to be interpreted as “harmless”. However, as a volunteer, as a donor, and as a father of two boys in the program closely watching this decision unfold, it was far from harmless.
Over the course of five years, the Boy Scouts of America’s sponsors, including Microsoft, Intel, UPS, and a few others has been receiving lawsuits, threats, and even actions against them from LGBT organizations because of their affiliations and donations to the Boy Scouts of America being they did not allow homosexual boys into the main program or homosexual adult leaders. Though, Organization Representatives (lawyers for the BSA) came to the convention that made this vote with evidence of serious safety concerns, they were not allowed to present this on the floor. However, the only issue allowed on the floor was funding.
Safety and Security issues published soon after the events that unfolded opened the eyes of many people including myself. Issues such as CDC articles stating that of all adolescents diagnosed with HIV in the past TWENTY (approx) years NINETY-ONE PERCENT of those are homosexual boys (citation). So adding sexuality to the Boy Scouts has always been “off the table” as an issue to consider. In a society where we have already horrifically failed our adolescent boys on such a level, it is utterly irresponsible to ignore that the BSA could be catalyzing this statistic.
Other issues were brought up, but the most disturbing of them all was adolescent suicide rates where a very large majority of adolescent suicides are hazed homosexual adolescents (citation). As someone outside of the organization, you may look at this and say “And?”, but being inside the BSA, being an Eagle Scout myself and having a family full of Eagle Scouts and knowing that boys are “tested” often by being left alone with other boys to fend for themselves, without adult supervision, makes these concerns very real concerns and very dire concerns; concerns that were again utterly ignored in the decision making process of the BSA.
In the case of the BSA: One only needs to create a large fire pit with a door, walls, and a sign, “No Gays Allowed” to have gays clawing down the doors to jump in. And what’s worse is as long as they are let in, no one supporting gays will even care if they’re jumping to their demise and genocide. Well, we do! It is my company’s opinion and my own opinion that these decisions hinged more on greed than it did safety and security. It is also my opinion and not the opinion of my company, that the part of the Scout Oath that mentions, “morally straight” does not include committing or supporting the genocide of homosexuals for profit or funding.
This lead to our decision that we would sever all ties with the Boy Scouts of America including funding, benefits (such as giving parents and employed leaders time off for their meetings and Eagle Scouts hiring preference), and sponsorship. We still proudly support Connect-A-Million Minds, the Presbyterian Church, the Wayne County Parks and Recreation for Youth whom all are very open to everyone regardless of gender, race, creed, or sexual orientation.
Over the past week, we have received many “threats” as well as harassment from the LGBT and their supporters over this decision. However I will state on the record, that no amount of bullying will change the principals of my company or myself. These efforts are futile. Unlike Microsoft, Intel, and UPS, companies where all that matters is a “bottom line”, our company does not function in this way. We are first and foremost a company whom was founded on the principals of Christianity and a commitment to both our customers and our employees.
We have even had some even go through the lawless extent of prank calling customers whom have their numbers listed on their websites (where we link to them through our portfolio) stating things ranging from “they [Goldsboro Web Development] are selling your information” to “they [Goldsboro Web Development] supports genocide”. These are all very slanderous and libelous comments if in print and entirely unfounded as our customers found out for themselves.
To-date, we have not lost a single customer because of this decision, in fact, we have not lost a single paying customer (for profit) over the past 30 days and we do not foresee this happening. We build very strong bonds with the companies we do business with and we would never make a decision that we believed to be outside of the purview of their own belief systems. With this decision, we are no longer offering free services to the BSA, so we will be losing these accounts or they will be upgrading to paid accounts. They have been properly notified of this.
I would like to close this open letter with a piece of advice — advice to those whom are using lawlessness, libel, and slander to further their agendas: Tolerance is the act of accepting or at least being objective to all views regardless of your opinion and view of that tolerance or lack thereof. If just some objectivity was reserved for our company and our opinion and decision, for instance, the ones preaching tolerance would quickly know our decision was not intolerant, but rather disgust of carelessness directed at a minority group by a large organization that creates the future leaders of this nation.
Im sorry but this is all incorrect, I personally have pages of logs of you claiming that boys will be in danger FROM the gay boys and so forth upon PMG Severing its ties and contracts with GWD As a resul;t of this unconstitutional and irrational decision based on fear of what you clearly have no understanding of and are therefore ignorant of. I have pages of logs of you stating that you not only had my source code authored by me owned by me and so forth but were putting it up for download and sale. You infact lost a client and that was PMG. There is no slander in informing people who do business with your company of you threatening to take my source code of numerous projects and sell it or release it without authorization simply because i severed our business relationship with you due to you being anti gay, if you had attacked the jewish community by calling them terrorists as seen below with a timestamped skype log, as you did to the LGBT community whom i may mention have never once taken any violent action to affect political change which is by definition terrorism.
In reference to your theft of my intellectual property and subsequent release thereof, I had to contact the Memphis FBI field office to seek legal action and that ballis rolling, Also I contacted Mr Gallagher whom you stated was your attorney, he has no record of ever representing you MLW or GWD.
You claim your decision was based upon the safety concerns for the homosexual boys? firstly Safety wise it would be better to raise the scouts to not be like you and actually learn acceptance, tolerance, and integrity, than it would be to have them in there secretly and when they are found out due to the intolerant nature of the environment( as is obvious by your own actions and words) are subject to the very hazing and harassment that propose is avoided by them being there secretly rather than openly and welcomed. I for one see no possible benifit in continuing to exlude any group of people out of fear and ignorance. I see nothing morally straight in supporting the willful ignorance and fear of others which invariably lead to hatred and malice. However reffering to them as terrorists is completely over the top and outright disgusting.
And As for your customers knowing that if they decide that they are severing ties and relationships with your company, you will throw a fit and hijack their websites and sensitive data and refuse to remove it upon formal request and the threat of legal action. And i am not the only client you have done this to, you did it to the pawn shop owner and others. you have lost many clients due to your disrespect and hot temper, I have personally been insulted by you so many times it is impossible to count, now you insult entire groups of people because of something they cannot help?
Would you label Martin Luther King Junior a terrorist? he personally affected policy probably more so than most anyone else in US history he helped enact many civil rights laws protecting EVERYONE from this kind of segregation and attacks. Would you call Lincon or washington terrorists?
Most likely you will delete this post before your clients see it which is why I am also putting it on Topix. What you are doing is immoral and wrong on many levels and it needs to be put out there.
Citations and logs below(Screenshots will be available on the topix post so that there can be no denial of your actions or words.

I can understand this. If the boy scouts indeed neglected the security of the boys for donations, this is very atrocious and I can support your view on this. I am also respectful of everyones opinions and think it is necessary to even hear the ones we do not want to hear in order to progress society to a civilized status.
@KevinBrooker Looks like you got trolled. U mad bro?
The LGBT has been involved in terrorism btw. Thought you should know:
Kevin posted only a portion of the conversation and failed to post this after I was trying to get him to shut up:
[5/30/2013 11:13:51 AM] Michael Lee Wells: Obvioulsy you can’t distinguish lie with sever saricasm from truth, much like you can’t distinguish a right from a wrong in the case of the BSA.
BTW, keep in mind, this guy, Kevin claimed to be God…. And a MD…. And an ordained minister…. And a CIA Operative… And a Marine…. Just saying.
@Mike W. Wait! How old is Kevin? Like 150? How can he hold all those degrees? Did he tell you all this? If so, this puts him over the edge of insanity to clinically ill.
@McQueen (I loled at your name) — yes he did. He claims to be a MD, Marine, CIA Operative, Ordained Minister, etc. I have quotes from skype on this too. I know it is insainity, that’s why I posted it lol.
Mike tell the guy to put up or shut up. Its that simple.
I did, he sends me a fuzzy image of this:
Bro, you can’t even make out anything on that. There is no identification or certifier. I can print out a certificate like that with “Doctor of Medicine” on it, but that wont make me one.
Dunno, he didn’t want to provide a high rez copy. In fact he kept saying he absolutely would not (for verification).
And viola, you have your answer.
It is sad what lengths liberals go through in order to force their beliefs on others. I pity them. What a sad, sad week for the BSA and this nutjob, “Kevin”.
A DOCTOR posted this crap? He should have known better.
Question, Mike clearly posted evidence and citations that boys would be in danger, where is yours? Does not appear you have citations.
Second question, how did PMG sever ties exactly? I’m wondering if this is a brat having a temperfit or if there was actually some kind of relationship beyond this guy being a disgruntled customer. I remember something on FB about this yesterday. Didn’t this guy systematically call customers and tell them GWD sells private information?
For the record, I am a constitutional scholar and politician, having an opinion or pulling funding from an organization regardless of the reason is entirely constitutional and rational.
I already know you will not like this. Anyone can say they are doing something, but if the crime is not actually committed, there is still no crime. Also, can you post these pages of logs stating this? I’m curious if this was an isolated incident you are blowing into a mountain or if Mr Wells actually said this repeatedly outside of the scope of angered responses.
Were you not getting your services for free or at cost or something? I believe this is the official word GWD is giving.
You see, this is the great thing about the US of A, you can say whatever you want without fear of recourse unless it is violent. Implying that someone else is violent is not a violent statement.
Sir or Ma’am, terrorism doesn’t always include violence, the threat thereof or threat of taking something or causing harm to a company is still terrorism. Please see Dictionary.com.
Can you prove beyond reasonable doubt that GWD stole your property? If I recall correctly they posted yesterday that they delete data as soon as the billing period ends for a cancellation. If they did delete your data and you are demanding evidence of this now, it is beyond idiotic. One simply cannot prove what may not exist. This is like demanding someone to prove there is a ghost in all seriousness.
This Gallighar fellow sounds familiar. Isn’t this GWD’s collection’s agent listed on their home page? Can you kindly provide us with recordings of some of these conversations? It is really hard to believe a word you say when people are saying you claim to be God and all of these megalithic degrees.
Ok, this got my goat. Because GWD’s concerns for safety doesn’t align with your own, you are saying that their decision based on such as an impossibility or bigoted and/or intolerant? Do you happen to know the definition of intolerant? You just demonstrated to everyone here you are very intolerant.
How can you deny CDC reports that Mr Wells cites or studies on hazing and gay suicide rates?
Hmmm, do you have any evidence of this at all? I’m a customer of GWD too and I would be concerned if this happened. I am glad I recieved an email from Mike and his team last night warning us about you. Your slanderous comments could actually cause harm to his company, and if it does, and you cannot prove otherwise, I will lend my company’s retained lawyer to help out.
Again, is there any evidence of this that you have? Why didn’t you post it with your logs? Without evidence Mr Brooker you are legally liable for any damages your comments cause in harm at this point.
How does anyone’s stance that pulls their children or funding from the BSA lead to hatred and malice? Just curious. I’m concerned about this one because the last I remembered, the US of A stated you can pull out of any organization when you wanted. In fact, if you are bullied to stay in an organization that organization is thereby defined under law as a cult. Under the law, there can be no repercussions of violence, mental harm, professional harm, while leaving any organization. You, sir are on the verge of misrepresenting the BSA as a cult.
YOUR CITATIONSI’m not quoting your putrid “evidence” but I will say this again. Someone saying they committed a crime does not prove they did it, in court, it helps, but you have to have actual and real evidence, else anyone that says, “I’ll kill you (as a figure of speech) for that!” would be a convicted felon.
Mr Wells, call me when you get a chance, I would like to offer my assistance. Mr Brooker, have fun in your delusions.
Editor: Hope you don’t mind HostSpot, we tidied up your post’s HTML a bit so it would be easier to read!
oh wow this guy kevin is a 1st class clown. does he think we are all that stupid? we know who you are mike. this guy is mentally unstable esp that you got a phone call from your customers from him calling them.
The email you got last night was 100% correct. He was “personally” getting an at-cost server from us as a personal favor from me. We never made a dime on his account and that was never the purpose. He came to us with the sob story that he was developing a project and had little money and was on a tight budget. I’m telling you this because he personally came to me, and I have logs of this. He did not use company channels for this conversation and I’m ousting this information in order to protect GWD.
This has all been very crazy, I feel like every time I talk with him my IQ drops by 150 and I’ve entered the realm of loony tunes.
Well, first of all I will go ahead and state for the record that I’m Mike’s wife in real life and work with him in the company. Secondly I would like to say that tolerance is when you allow others to have their own opinion and do not force your opinions on them. To claim tolerance while being completely intolerant of others is hypocritical. We’re all allowed our own opinions and decisions in life that’s what makes America so great. I have to say that Kevin, you’re entitled to your opinion and we’re entitled to ours. If you choose to support the BSA and to not support us because we do not do the same then you have that right. However, if you choose to continually bug businesses who do business with us just because they do business with us this is harassment. You’re just trying to bully others into agreeing with you.
Here’s the kicker. We refuse to be bullied. So, go ahead, make your calls, get charges filed on you for harassment if you keep it up, make a fool of yourself. That’s you’re right, but it’s also our right to ignore you or even laugh at you for it. We’ve made our decisions and have our own beliefs which we believe most dearly. We refuse to change to the popular will just because it’s popular. So, feel free to do as you do, we won’t stop you unless you try and do something illegal. This is called tolerance. Let us hope that you learn the meaning of this word eventually.
I believe this guy was utterly decimated. Thanks guys!
To all concerned: As of 11:47pm, we have officially and formally filed charges against Kevin Brooker for harassment of our company and its customers as well as libel, malevolent contact, disturbing the peace, and assault. The formal charges can be found by checking the Wayne Co Sheriff’s department. As a word of caution, don’t break out the champagne yet, I was advised that likely much wouldn’t come of the charges unless his address on his skype was legit. The department here is not interested in issuing subpoenas to Skype obviously. Charges will be filed by the state on my behalf if anything does happen, so it will go before a prosecutor. We do have the intent to sue for any damages we see as a result. So far, only perceived damages from libel seem to be obvious and relevant as we haven’t lost any clients whatsoever.
Keep us updated Mike!
I got a message on Facebook from a “business partner” of Kevin’s, a Mr Wood. It read:
Will do, but its time for me to hit the sack.
Steve and Brad I was literally told today that Mr Brooker is now in hiding, he’s not staying at his GF’s house now, or his claimed business office. I gave them his old addresses as well so we’ll see if Oregon and Washington also plays ball with NC and TN on this.
