Facebook 'Frenemy' Paul Ceglia Passed Polygraph?

Lora Bentley

I almost hate to write about Paul Ceglia. The New York businessman who is suing Facebook for part ownership of the company has a reputation as a con man and has faced fraud charges in the past, so I don't give his claims much credence. Why give him blog space? But he's suing the world's largest and most popular social network, and for some reason the court has let the case progress. Unfortunately that makes him news.


The latest comes from the Los Angeles Times, which reports Ceglia passed a polygraph test. Apparently Ceglia's attorneys are hoping to sway a few opinions. In a court filing Friday, the story says, attorneys indicated the test "focused on the authenticity of the 2003 contract with Mark Zuckerberg ... and showed 'no deception.'"


Standing alone, that information means nothing. The results are not admissible as evidence of the truth of the matter being asserted in court. And they're not admissible because they are not consistently reliable. He could be lying and beat it, just as he could be telling the truth but fail miserably.



The motion opposes Facebook's request to review Ceglia's documents immediately. Instead, Ceglia wants the court to order both sides to submit their documentation and emails so that the issue of authenticity can be settled. Facebook's attorneys point out that Ceglia has yet to produce the original contract or emails surrounding it.


You know, even if Ceglia's case is eventually thrown out as meritless, even if he is required to pay Facebook's legal fees, he will also have caused the company to waste an awful lot of time in court when they could have been working on the next great social networking feature or functionality. Maybe that's half the point for him. He just wants to make Facebook pay.

It all started when DAVID was logged in to the Harvard website,(2003) where I was listening in to the conversations of the Harvard students.One of these students was Mark Zuckerberg who was talking about Face Smash and he had just broken up with his girlfriend at the time, so I struck up a conversation with this Mark Zuckerberg.He was talking about creating a dating site.I thought this was a bit odd-a pie in the sky idea since he had just broken up with his girlfriend and he was slaging her off-calling her a bitch and a whore.

dave talked to Mark about the idea, and suggested he call it Face Mash.He was intrigued with my suggestion and thought it was a good idea.Mark wanted to call it Face Smash, because he wanted to smash his ex in the face.I convinced him that Face Mash was a good idea and he agreed, but one week later he changed his mind and wanted to call it Face Smash.When I queried him about this he replied f.off you c- I'm calling it Face Smash'.Two weeks after this conversation he came up with the name Mashable and when I asked him why he chose the word Mashable instead of Face Mash he said f,off you bastard, Face mash is not your idea'.So I re-posted the conversations we had two weeks earlier and he had to apologize and said he was going with Mashable.I took this as a sign that he wanted to throw me off the scent and take the site for himself.dave found the character of Mark Zuckerberg to be deceptive and dishonest and ended conversing with Mark Zuckerberg because of his dishonesty and lack of integrity.


After this dave started conversing with Dustin and Chris about an idea of mine called Facebook for an online service where students can post pictures and information on themselves and use it as a directory.They were very intrigued by my idea and wanted to know more.

dave told them that in the beginning, it would be an online service just for Harvard students, and then spreading through the other campuses in America, joining them up together.The idea was to make it easy for people to connect with other university students so they could get an idea of what other campuses were like, and even eventually spreading through the general public, giving them an idea of what was on offer at the different campuses.

Dustin and Chris were very intrigued with my idea and said they wanted to be on board.but zuck was there roommate and wonted to be on board zuckerberg was apologetic about face-mash but it was bull shit


So we needed a platform dave made contact with paul ceglia and was in discussion about a platform for my idea the facebook

but zuckerberg made contact to paul ceglia to steal the idea facebook paul ceglia had no legal right to sell the the platform to mark zuckerberg but zuckerberg new what he was doing when he sign the contract

david got e-mails from zuckerberg saying he was not interested in the idea facebook ;david then contacted dustin chris to find out about this email i got from zuckerberg;they went into denial about this.but later on got a email from chris saying they were not interested in the idea facebook.

DAVID CONTACTED CHRIS to say that david was going to sign the contract with paul ceglia .CHRIS told zuckerberg and zuck made contact to paul ceglia to steal the idea facebook ON APRIL 2003 .and this is how and why zuckerberg  Reply

you see zuck dustin and chris new that facebook was a billion dollar idea but you stole the idea facebook


dave found a site at Harvard called Harvard Connect (later, in 2004 changed to Harvard Connect To You) run by Cameron and Taylor Winklevoss, and dave explained everything about Facebook and the dealings with Zuckerberg, Dustin and Chris and how dave believed that Zuckerberg was in the process of stealing david idea, and dave asked if the Winklevosses were interested in running Facebook on the Harvard site

DAVID found out later on that the winklevoss contacted WAYNE CHANG and sold 50% of the idea facebook my god how dumb can you get .all the winklevoss had to do was go hire a team of programmers or learn to program on their own .and the idea facebook was a sound and solid idea .tell the truth about facebook WAYNE CHANG and about the WINKLEVOSS BS.none of it was their idea, why did FB give them 65 million?That isn't exactly hush money its fraud and extortion .the WINKLEVOSS new that zuckerberg stole the idea facebook and fb was not there idea or zuck .

DIVYA NARENDRA contacted david and told david that the winklevoss contacted WAYNE CHANG and sold 50% of the idea facebook with out telling david

david contacted WAYNE CHANG ' about this and WAYNE CHANG contacted the WINKLEVOSS and they went into denial about DAVID ;you see FACEBOOK was david idea ;so david sent copes of the EMAILS to WAYNE CHANG about the WINKLEVOSS and MARK ZUCKERBERG .

the winklevoss had to ACKNOWLEDGE that the idea of facebook was david idea.WHEN DAVID SENT COPYS OF THE EMAILS to wayne chang.

YOU got backstabbed."!!?WAYNE CHANG

Mark Zuckerberg took investment for thefacebook from paul cellai in April 2003 he could not have stolen the idea for thefacebook in November of 2003 from the winklevoss but he did steal the idea from david and it was david who contacted the winklevoss when zuck stole the idea from david

mark zuckerberg facebook hired a high-profile public relations firm to plant negative stories in major media outlets about its archrival, Google

the winklevoss had to take the settlement zuck new the idea facebook was not the winklevoss idea;and the winklevoss new that mark zuckerberg stole the idea facebook!!........BUT FROM WHO
