I am aware that this Zappa family conflict stuff has become extremely boring at this point.
There are far more serious things happening in the world that deserve all of our attention and positivity. I for one would rather concentrate on better things.
Since my brother's 2nd open letter is so inconsistent and filled with so many egregious inaccuracies I won't bother to address them point by point.
As an overview, my brother's strategy appears to be all about deflection and deception.
The letter reads as if he is spraying people with a hose filled with word noise. He is relying on people to ignore the facts.
Other than that, it appears that my brother is attempting to reach out to me and urging that we speak. I'm amenable to speaking, that is not an issue. Let’s pick a time.
The question at hand is, what is the difference between the Ahmet that speaks to me on the phone and the Ahmet that speaks to his lawyers?
There is a clear history of Ahmet saying one thing and doing the opposite. For a phone call to be of any value, there must be some legal closure as a result.
For clarification, I have not received any recent emails or calls from my brother.
Ahmet, if you did send a recent email, which address was it sent to?
Was it sent it to my email@example.com email address, the one you recently blocked me from and illegally seized and archived all of the contents, claiming it was for the "protection" of the ZFT? The role of the trustees of the ZFT (you) is to work within the best interests of the beneficiaries of the ZFT (me), so how does stealling all of my emails protect me, I wonder?
I'm not sure how my 15-year-old, private email address (with over 80,000 emails), containing attorney-client privileged information, divorce records, medical records and personal communications between me and my former wife, as well as my wife and kids, is suddenly your property.
Conversely, I haven't had any trouble receiving emails sent from your attorneys.
The inappropriate vitriolic email your wife sent me the other day landed in my inbox. How come I got that and not your email?
In closing, I'm sure you're aware that you could easily make things better right away by signing a Trademark co-existence agreement. Why not show good faith in advance of a phone call?
I'm happy to get on the phone. You know my number.
