Whale Oil – the book

Written By: - Date published: 11:45 am, May 29th, 2019 - 15 comments

Whale Oil by Margie Thomson is about the Blomfield vs Slater case. Lost by Cameron Slater because after 7 years of trying to delay it, he was unable to mount a credible defense before a judge. But there is a lot of detail behind that that is worrying in an internet age..

Human Rights decision is quite pointed

Written By: - Date published: 8:54 am, March 13th, 2019 - 13 comments

A decision released yesterday by the Human Rights Review Tribunal that went against Cameron Slater is very clear. The gratuitous publication of personal details on its own simply isn’t newsworthy in any news medium. The topic has to actually be newsworthy to get the exemption in the Privacy Act for news mediums. 

Cameron Slater slithers into bankruptcy

Written By: - Date published: 7:15 am, February 27th, 2019 - 51 comments

Yesterday Cameron Slater announced that he would be seeking bankruptcy. It is unlikely to help him to avoid the stress of dealing with the legal consequences. The three current defamation cases that he is defending so badly have very little to do with money and a lot to do with making sure neither he nor any other arsehole dares to use his vile tactics again.

Sitemeter is broken – no Open Parachute stats.

Written By: - Date published: 1:35 pm, May 20th, 2017 - 6 comments

Over months, the readings from Statcounter had gotten increasingly inaccurate. Since the other public site stats packages have significiant other flaws on highish volume sites, we stopped running any. That means that the blog rankings for this site at Open Parachute stopped. Bomber can claim a empty position because he can’t check his statistics.

Dirty Politics done in the Netsafe style.

Written By: - Date published: 9:29 am, March 30th, 2017 - 47 comments

I just got sent a notice of complaint from Netsafe under the HDCA (Harmful Digital Communications Act). It appears to me that Netsafe still either hasn’t read the act or that they are cooperating with the perpetrators of Dirty Politics. Either way, I don’t have time to deal with people who don’t put in the information required by the act for me and the unknown author to make a decision. Updated

A very stupid petulant spoilt child whines again

Good news for law abiding bloggers, the foolish Cameron Slater has to find about 8k to pay for his latest legal hiding  by Matthew Blomfield. Whining about these actions to the press like Cameron always does, won’t stop the disciplinary actions. He needs to stop acting like a arsehole blogger.

Key should apologise to Tania Billingsley and Slater should be ashamed

Written By: - Date published: 9:24 am, December 6th, 2015 - 72 comments

The disputed facts case involving Tania Billingsley’s complaint against the Malaysian Diplomat suggests the diplomat was engaged in some bizarre drug induced behaviour and completely exonerates Ms Billingsley.  John Ken will have to reconsider his petty refusal to apologise to her.  And Murray McCully’s actions will be closely monitored as soon as the completed report into the invocation of diplomatic immunity is released.

The comical farce of Cameron Slater et al

Cameron Slater and his associates are legal morans. This has been extensively investigated and judged on by the Court of Appeal in a judgement released yesterday. I have a wee look at it and the steaming heap of faecal matter that these idiots tried to get the judges to consume.
