Threats of Assault from Standard commenters

David Farrar and I along with a number of elected councillors and the Mayor are being threatened with physical harm by a commenter at The Standard:

For the record Lynn Prentice, the administrator, issed this Millsy character with a mild rebuke. If you are from the right of centre and place a comment much less offensive than that you can easily be banned and many are. But threats of assault from left wing commentators are met with a mild rebuke from the “sysop”.

I have been assaulted by unionists before, and threatened by them too. This is nothing. I welcome the attention. If Robert Mills of Palmerston North, a long time left wing nutter who has threatened violence wants to lead the attack on me then he can go right ahead. I understand he has the body of a half sucked throatie so shouldn’t be too much of a challenge. He should however give Mark Gosche a call and ask what happens to unionists to assault me.

What I do not welcome though is the defamatory remarks by author James Henderson who alleges that I apparently have a going rate of $10,000 for attacking unions. I think I will let their comments thread run on that one though and see how bad it gets.

This is an interesting development but I think the rate is far too low, especially now with threats of physical harm.

What I want to know is who I send the invoice to?

But it is quite hilarious that a leftwing blog that once attacked me for being a beneficiary is now attacking me for working. Worse it appears they are the ones setting my rates and conditions!

There is no way I’d do what I am doing for $10,000 as a fixed fee, for something like the Ports of Auckland I’d probably do it for $20,000 after a discount for the sheer fun of union bashing. Ask Trevor Mallard he knows my rate for leadership coups is $30,000. But for $10,000? …good grief I’m not some flea blog struggling for traffic.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
