The Standard and Death Threats

The Standard’s attack by several authors against both John and Josie Pagani has reached new depths, and now involves death threats.

Take a look at this comment from regular contributor Colonial Viper:

“Time to put Zarak and Gaeta back in their place.” Sounds innocuous unless you are a sci0-fi fan and follow Battlestar Galactica

How is that not a death threat?

From Wikipedia:

“After regaining control of Galactica and defeating the mutiny, Adama has Zarek and Gaeta executed by firing squad.”

Ummm, too far? I think so. There really is no other way to read that. The only way that Zarek and Gaeta were put in their place was execution.

Colonial Viper seems unhinged. That individual has been making some foreboding comments in there:

Josie and John must be beside themselves. They have a young family and those are serious threats.

The authors of The Standard and Lynn Prentice as the ostensible “owner” of The Standard know a great deal about this commenter…for a start with all of Lynn’s self professed IT literacy he will certainly know the ip address from which those comments were posted.

The authors at The Standard like to call my blog and DPF’s blog – “The Sewer”. I think that title has been snatched beyond doubt now by The Standard.

Commenters who debate with logic against the authors are frequently banned and their comments deleted for far, far less. The fact that the comments stand after so many hours ahows tacit approavl by the authors. It is time they were held to account for their actions.

It is clear that they do not respect freedom of speech, or even freedom of association. They are fascists. Fascism in what ever form must be confronted and defeated.

If anyone knows anything about the identities of the commenters and/or authors then my anonymous tipline is available for you to confidentially share that information.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
