Why I maintain this blog

Basically to get things off my chest. My wide following of visitors seem to be interested in what I post and, hopefully, find some interesting information on people and services that I comment on.

As you will see if you take the trouble to look around at some of the posts on this blog the subject matter is very wide and is not restricted to a particular topic. Unlike many blogs and websites this blog does not focus on a particular agenda such as the promotion of a political ideology, discussion of a particular technology or certainly not as a means to discredit an individual that I disagree with.

You won't find lawyers like mine on Facebook

This morning I was thinking of that statement that was make by someone who I was commenting on their business practices. At that time he thought that I was a kid that was operating a website from my "Mom and Pop's" basement.

This turned out to be a pattern on the way that he operates in general. Make a threat and if that doesn't work make another more outrageous one. Try and make out that you are smarter than me and that you are the victim.

The money won't run out

... but life may!

Now a second friend has passed in the last wee while, one has to contemplate ones mortality.

Information for CRA

Part of an email I received 28th November 2016

Again the highlighted text is part of the email:

As I mentioned, we have a substantial amount of information collected regarding Wayne's 'dubious business' :) practices over the years. This has not been submitted to the CRA yet, but with the tax season around the corner, I will ensure it is. It is frustrating to me that Wayne continues to get away with his crimes. I hope that CRA involvement will have an impact... However you decide to proceed, I thank you for your past efforts. I do check in or your site once in a while to see if there is anything new posted. This has helped us to add to the information we have collected over the years.

..... and there is nobody else that has a problem with him?!

Of course, Wayne will just claim that this is just me inventing "inflammatory" and falsified information again!

Wayne McAlpine continues to be interested in what I post about him. He thinks that I have an interest in the automotive industry - I don't.

Using my real name

I have never used my real name in relation to anything that I have publically posted to the Internet. When I originally registered my website domain name I briefly used my real name but I changed it to John Smith when I was trying to remain anonymous in some of my posts.

When  I returned to the UK I changed the name on my Canadian domain registration to my real name. This was due to the fact that a certain person could not have any influence on my personal activity in Canada. Now, in the UK, nobody I know here has any idea of my Internet activity. In  which case there is no reason for me to use a pseudonym for my identity online.
