If you haven’t been reading this series of blogs then catch up at http://spankyrant.blogspot.co.uk/
This blog is an update of a few developments to bring you right up to date.
I am going to rush through the communication we have had with these people since they sent their document in August.
We were completely shocked by that document and its allegations against us. But more shocking were the tactics they had used for the past 7 years without our knowledge. Don’t forget that in their last communication back in 2005 we were told they “won’t pester us again”.
Of course this was completely untrue, as you have seen from my previous blogs. The continual insinuation and calling us liars I can sort of cope with. My strategy after meeting them was to ignore them from then on. However, seeing the tactics they had used – such as engaging Private Investigators to follow, snoop on, stake out and harass friends, as well as people we do not even know – was appalling in the extreme: it had to be stopped somehow. Whenever we went out, we started looking over our shoulders and started to suspect PI’s at every corner. Paranoid maybe, but that’s what these people have done to us.
Therefore my first approach was to go legal. I had never ever gone legal personally in my life, but our pursuers’ activities raised many legal questions and I haven’t even started to discuss these yet. I asked them for information about the use of private investigators, fraud squad officers and other professionals, and of the illicitly taped conversations they had made without permission, and much more. I wanted full disclosure of their practices.
Here’s what happened – we received a reply, unsigned, and from whom we don’t know, saying we were now harassing them, together with plenty of other self-serving comments. It included the wonderful statement that they are:
“currently finalising negotiations for a global publishing deal for a book which will be presented as the UK’s version of Social Networking.”
(Fellows: it’s called ‘The Social Network’ by the way!!!)
It was this 2-page reply that resulted in my decision to start blogging about these events. The legal options could wait for the time being.
So, as you may or may not have read, I started blogging about this last month.
From my first blog I invited them to put their claims as comments on my blogs or start blogging themselves. That was always their desire – to get it out in public.
Over the last month a few things have happened.
Because of my blogging, some people who knew nothing about this have contacted me with further insight into our pursuers’ tactics. I’ll leave these for another time.
On 12th November, our chief pursuer sent an email from a new email address. However, the new email address included their old website’s name, and (possibly because that website no longer exists) it went into my lawyer’s junk mail folder. [Never has the term junk mail been more appropriate.] Because we didn’t reply to the email, they sent another one on 22nd – we managed to pick this one up and hence found the earlier one. Sorry about that – these things happen. I suspect the content of this paragraph will get incorporated into their conspiracy somehow.
That second email was amazing. It was sent after my factual blog last week – but even after all those facts had been clearly disclosed it still included statements like this:
“Were they actually involved in the start up?”
I have got to say I found this staggering.
We didn’t reply and we’re not going to – since they still maintain that they are going to publish their own documents. Fine – we want them to.
This week I got an email sent directly to me. Lots more of the same but with this:
“you are welcome to a preview of a response to your Blog which you may post or withhold at your own discretion”
Why would I want to do that? Just publish your own stuff.
As I know that our pursuers are reading these blogs, what follows is my message to them.We are not going to reply to any of your direct emails. One of the reasons for this is that anything we say or write in response is twisted, turned and manipulated to conform to your mooted conspiracy. Therefore:
- · Just reply or blog away
- · At the same time publish your document
- · Put live your www.reward4information.com website (seems to be something unrelated at the moment)
- · Let everyone know who you are. Each of your last three emails has been sent anonymously, which is odd behaviour for people who claim to be seeking nothing other than the truth.
- · Once done I will even help promote your document through the social media I use, and encourage comments on it.
Come on – stop talking about it and JFDI.
