Christchurch Underbelly Update: The vigilantes show their true colours.


Not satisfied with having their fun taken away, the vigilantes at GP Forum are now lashing out wildly.

I will give you a perfect example of how small minded little wankers can ruin people’s lives.

Now, you all know this doesn’t bother me.  After all, I’ve dealt with worse.  But notice the morphology of how someone’s reputation can be ruined in the space of 3 public posts on a forum.  Posts that will be indexed by Google and remain there for the foreseeable future:

  1. State a lie, but leave it as question
  2. Confirm it without evidence
  3. Treat is as a fact

Are you ready?  Here we go.  







The sad thing is that the GP Forums crowd behind the sleuthing originally did fantastic work.  It’s only the hangers on and the big mouths that have moved in since that made it all a huge mess.

In their own words, they went “Full Retard”.

There are those that were the original detectives.  And since then I’ve exposed the Judge and Jury types.

All we have left are filthy little boys that think it’s OK to spread unfounded rumours just because someone exposed their idiocy to the  world when they were publicly talking about taking the law into their own hands.

There are GPers with a much more level head who understand that this could go really wrong, and are urgently calling for this particular forum thread, or parts of it,  to be deleted (no point, I’m making a copy of it every 10 minutes)

It seems, like any vigilante group, they’ve lost control of a small group of individuals.

Bit of a sad end to what started as a great story, really.

I won’t bother to ask for a retraction or apology.  If anything, I suspect it will ramp up from here and I’ll be Ground Zero for anything that requires blame to be assigned.

It’s just nice to know that the original Sleuths haven’t lost their sense of humour in all this.

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.

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