Twelve months ago today, I wrote this post as an attention-getter, in a bid to have the author of the example nuisance email pay attention to my requests, which have since become complaints, to have my email address removed from his mindless mailing lists.
To the best of my knowledge, he still has not removed said email address, given that he continues to haunt my mail client. Some people just don’t know when to quit.
It’s a simple exercise, when using content management software, to discover the IP address and root source of commenters. The numerous derogatory, insulting comments on the above post from persons purporting to be Joshua D, not concerned, overly concerned and extremely concerned all originate from the same IP address, generated by Telstra Bigpond via a server in Western Australia. It’s clear to me that these commenters are the same antagonist who refuses to cease stalking my inbox. It transpires that Robert McJannett has vacated the Sunshine State for the boom state of Western Australia. Doubtless he’s pestering the Carpenter government these days about monorails being the safest form of transport on the planet. Another Labor government, and doubtless another bitter disappointment for the monorail cause. How do I know this? Various sources, including the registered mail he took the time and money to send, in a bid to bully me into removing the aforementioned post from my blog. Something I have absolutely no intention of ever doing, I have to say. That’s MY blog, Robert, not my wife’s blog. I own and pay for the domain, she simply registered it for me and has long since changed the registration to my name. I don’t like bullies, and I don’t take prisoners. Neither do I intentionally defame people. Something poor Robert insists has happened because his name appears in print. News Flash, Robert!! Your name isn’t copyright, and you certainly haven’t been defamed. Made to look a complete goose, more likely, but certainly not defamed.
McJannett has been threatening litigation for months now, yet I’ve not been visited by a process server, nor do I expect to be. He’s also called our telephone number in the middle of the night in a bid to insult, abuse and otherwise harass either my wife or myself … whoever happened to answer the phone, I suppose. He has called and caught my wife unawares on one occasion, abusing her needlessly, given his beef appears to be with me. Something which we both found quite revealing, from someone who claims to know the law. McJannett, you see, is a poor man’s Timmy Blair. All of the vitriol, but none of the wit, snide or otherwise. He’s not at all cognisant of how the internet works, nor the blog world. He clearly doesn’t understand the law, or even common decency. He is an ideologue. A hard right-wing conservative sympathiser, labor-hater … call it what you will. One need only google the man’s name to discover that he’s ruffled more than his share of feathers, and supports some of the more radical causes around. He and Piers Akerman are well suited, in that both still believe the Heiner Inquiry has something to cough up. The ‘sphere is populated with such types. Like the men in Tennyson’s ‘The Brook’, they come and go.
So, thanks for the thoughts and the expense of using registered mail, Robert! Thanks also for the evidence. Stalking is still an offence, as far as I’m aware. Even if it is by long distance snail-mail. All donations gratefully received.
