Dogpatch Press Editor Accused of FRAUD

I was so happy this morning when Perri Prinz posted is wonderful article on my Facebook page LINK It tells of how one Patrick Lane AKA Patch O’Fur AKA Editor and Cheif of Dogpatch Press is accused of forging Connor Cochran’s signature on a contract to deliver the works of Peter S. Beagle, who is know for The Last Unicorn and other great works.

As you might of imagined dear readers, I have taken a lot of heat over this RMFC matter, and then there is Perri Prinz whose article I posted, including a follow up over her assessment of what is slowly turning into one of the biggest embarrassing moments in the entire furry fandom in it’s history. Which has caused me to get a C&D from this one site I can not name, and getting a rather nasty email from Patrick Lane calling me an unthinking idiot among other things.

But now it turns out one of the major players who has been amping up the rhetoric has now been accused of FRAUD.

Which I have informed Fred Patten about this, and what happens with Mr. Patten’s articles for Dogpatch Press is strictly his business, but saying under the law, when someone is accused of fraud, you can pull your work. A smart lawyer could handle things for him with just a phone call.

I would also suggest to Patrick Lane in a public forum, that he should return all of Fred Patten’s submissions until this matter is settled one way or the other. Or is it he wants to take one of the founder’s of the fandom with him? Only time will tell.

Let’s look at the article once again HERE

I don’t want to come off sounding like a smug bastard over this matter. But I do Furry Times alone and rarely get any help, and I fully admit I miss things. But the one thing I know Dear Readers I will never be accused of FRAUD. I volunteer at a local VA hospital where I have met several Military Furs. Who I have the greatest respect for, and I would never do anything that would jeopardize me helping out the Veterans of this country. Who despite who is president always seems to get the short end of the stick.

  1. That article is over two years old. Wouldn’t something have happened by now if there was anything in it?

    1. The article says the case will take a long time to play out, but even if the case is eventually dropped for lack of resources or whatever, Patch Packrat (aka Patch O’Furr) will remain under accusation of having been involved in a conspiracy to do something immoral to Peter S. Beagle, which will totally undermine his credibility as a reputable professional in a position to be putting down other amateur journalists, or to defend his own hatemongering articles at Dogpatch.

      Being as Patch has openly stated his pride in having been the one who recently betrayed the fandom to the mainstream media and figuratively poured gasoline on the fire of the fandom’s current state of mainstream embarrassment, not to mention his expressed intention to continue embarrassing the fandom by working with potentially disreputable mainstream sensationalists, it seems some backlash is due for this individual from the fandom. Certainly he deserves no less a place of dishonor in Furry history than has been attained by such as Chew Fox. And serious questioning should be given to whether such a person should be in a position of prominence at a Furry news service, which gives him potential to do maximum damage to the fandom.

      Just my opinion, of course. It’s up to the fandom to judge this fur and his publication. But, in order to do so, they need to know what he’s been up to, and hear a perspective other than one under the strict censorship of Patch.
