I assume this refers to the error message received from Tripod on 16 January. The messages might have been snet, but the list of email addresses was incorrectly formed so they were not delivered. That is why the message saying "Your message could not be sent to:" was snet to me (actually it was snet to ""). GAL will just have to sned it again. Observant people will also note that this message was received by me at a domain name I no longer own! (It "owns"! What a hoot!)

Good morning:

We've taken the liberty of editing and listing your "consultancy" pratcice on a great number of services. We've also emailed your sites to everyone you've listed on them and to regulators and broadcasters. Hopefully someone will be motivated enough to want to deal with you.

Your site is filth, lies, and deception. You are a complete and utter moron.

I'm sure all those regulators and broadcasters were very impressed that something so ashamed of itself that it won't say its name wrote to them. I would imagine that GAL hopes that anyone who deals with me will be more effective than it or Mr William P O'Neill of the Canadian Cancer Research Group have been. Perhaps these new people will be twice as effective, but the result will be the same because two times zero is still zero. After all, if you add the results achieved by GAL and Mr O'Neill together they might as well have been just one person.

I have been aware of Mr. Bowditch for some time and have watched on the side lines, with earnest interest. I have comment for the group and Mr. Bowditch, in the knowledge that I, too, will likely become a target of his sickness.

First, however, let me introduce myself. I am cancer surgeon in the Western Canada. I am a graduate of the University of Calgary and John Hopkins. I have residencies/fellowships at Kettering, Anderson and The Cross in Edmonton. I am aware of opinion and fact regarding cancer therapeutics inside and outside of many medical models. Frankly, none seem that hopeful while most are quite exploitive. My wife is an immunologist at The Cross, and she shares my view and that of most inside institutional care that much of what we have done is wrong, much that we do today is wrong, and we can all learn from our mistakes, within all models of medicine. And this brings me to Mr. Bowditch.

Mr. Bowditch's opinions and his means of expression are nothing less than an expression of ignorance from a bigot. Further, his delivery reads and sounds more like the ravings of a lunatic. However, we can learn from Mr. Bowditch. His stupidity and buffoonery remind us to persevere. His lies and dececeptions remind us of truth.

Where is "John Hopkins"?

My donkey might look confused, but he's not dememted.

I am one of the handful of people who have not yet seen The Lord of the Rings and it is a long time since I read any Tolkein so I didn't make the connection, but someone has reminded me that "Underhill" was the name that Frodo Baggins used when he travelled to Rivendell. Maybe this is not a coincidence and I am being stalked by a Hobbit! That requires more exclamation marks!!!

Let's get something straight amongst us conventional and alternative medical people: I am a conventionalist. I believe and know that any and everything outside of convenvtional medicine is crap. I also know: It is my intention and my crusade to libel, defame, misrepresent, destroy, and inflict injury upon anyone or any organization that supports anyhting outside of the convenvtional medical model. Some of you bleeding-heart liberals may not like it. That's okay. Speak up. Give me a name. I'll deal with you. And let's get one other thing straight: You can quote me, I'll deny it.

Hello Group:

Just thought I'd add a bit of colour to your limited discussions revealing some thoughts and plans I have concerning two issues. The first is for all those anti-vaccination liars:

Vaccines are good despite the fact that they might injure some who receive them. It's a small price to pay. If your child has been injured, it is in the context and knowledge that many were otherwsie saved. Stop bitching and complaining and get over it.

The second of these issues is Mr William P O'Neill of the Canadian Cancer Research Group. I decided a long time ago that quite serendipitously he was to become my pet victim. My point in all this is not whether he is right or wrong, but simply that I can destroy, libel and defame whom I wish, without fear of reprisal.

And back to Alternative Cancer Therapies. They are all crap.

Peter Bowditch

Date: 28 Mar 2002 13:22:07 -0000
Subject: Thank you Australia!

Not too long ago I came across your site and was so facsinated I decided I'd investigate you. What a success story!

Successes aside, your government regulators were very interested in my views of your site and all those "immutable facts" you publish and broadcast. So much so, they asked and I provided "public input" to the ABA concerning their hearings on "Libel and Defamation on the Internet". Seems the ABA needs evidence and input for their final draft of what constitutes libel and defamation on the internet and you and your site are fine examples from witch they can finalize their draft. It's sort of like having a look at the offspring of 1st cousins and then passing legislation.

In the meantime, they asked that I sit down with their legal people to further review your sites. What a treat!

You should be congratulated for all your efforts and the upcoming testing of the waters. We're sure you have the necessary bevy of lawyers and personal resources to defend your position and particulary for those who come after you once the flood gates are open.

Before I forget, one another initally overlooked element of your actions is publishing private correspondence without the authour's consent. Seems this "little" matter has been acted upon by the ABA and those authours have been contacted to discern their consent. Most have responded and it seems they have not provided you with consent, and some have complained to your ISP without results. The ABA doesn't like this, and of course your ISP in now under their scrutiny.

It's going to be a delicious day when you get nailed by your own!

Incidentally, I provided those interested, with a copy of a statement of claim in America that names you in a libel and defamation action for 10,000,000.00 Us dollars. Seems as though this will be entered into the "record", so to speak, as an excellent objective example of the "problem".

I'd wish you good luck, but at this point it appears to running out quite quickly, so break a leg!

Full moon. New crayon day at the asylum. I'm sure that "government regulators" were very impressed by GAL sitting there with a bag over its head telling them everything about me. I can imagine them (if they existed outside GAL's imagination) falling about laughing around the water cooler. There are 15 mentions of the word "defamation" on the Australian Broadcasting Authority web site, but none of them occurs within the expression "Libel and Defamation on the Internet", so I guess we will just have to chalk this up as another lie from Mr O'Nonymous.

Date: 30 Mar 2002 03:31:04 -0000
Subject: Poor Illiterate Man!

Given that Australia is essentially "Con-Med" and literacy being is still an issue, do see rtf 1 and 2 on the ABA site! It's riddled with "libel and defamation" issues. Perhaps you might want to run down to the corner and find someone who can read it to you!

By the way, the hearing was convened and neither you nor your lawyers were anywhere to be seen. Guess we move onto the next step where we get our judgement in "absentia". Thank god California has an agreement with Australia in these matters!

Whatever is it talking about here? Perhaps it might like to provide an actual reference to "rtf 1 and 2 on the ABA site". I would imagine that the absence of me and my lawyers from the "hearing" was because there was no "hearing" for us to attend.

Date: 30 Mar 2002 03:41:10 -0000
Subject: More News!

Your government has been ever so kind! They have advised us in correspondence that they have recently adopted the position of enforcing judgements from "other" jurisdictions in libel and defamation issues concerning internet. They further advised that they would encourage courtesy copies of any correspondence from oursleves or the courts and assured us of their full cooperation.

Keep your eye on your post! It's only a matter of time! And.....its' going to be great fun!

Bring it on, Mr O'Nonymous. But fax me the correspondence from my government first. Can't do that? Don't have it? I didn't really need to ask, did I?

Date: 31 Mar 2002 17:54:29 -0000
Subject: oh we are...

"bring it on"?...guaranteed!

As an example of internet libel and defamation, with an abdundance of self-published evidence, it was hardly necessary to be "graced" with your presence. Nor was it difficult in discerning internet issues concerning the broadcast of private corrpespondence and relevant international copyright conventions. Seems regulators have decided when the time comes you and your ISP will receive correspondence and you won't be publishing it in your little scrap book for all to see.

There's also interest in your "little" company, from a tax perspective, and your "professional" associations, from a public funding perspective.

If GAL weren't so funny it would be sad to see the pathetic thing flailing about. All it has to do is send me copies of the correspondence (or even corrpespondence, if it likes) that it lies it has received from the Australian government. Just one fax. Instead it hides behind an anonymous remailer, too frightened to even reveal its name. Even if Mr O'Nonymous can't work the fax machine with the straps on, surely it could ask one of the psych nurses to push the buttons for it.

Bring it on, GAL!

And, remember, stupidy and insanity is not a defence...

Gosh? Could that be Stephen Grin & Barrett of, or Terry Poking-Boys Polevoy, of Weeping Sores Care Clinic, or Peter Pathological-Liar-Ditch of Gebesse Consutlants and Pornographers featuring webcam access to Virginia and Belinda?

That's better.

If one were interested, one could visit Bowditch's porno webcam site, where one can watch his dimwitted child, Belinda, and his skanky wife, Virginia do unspeakably anonymous things to each other.

The predictability of idiocy (14/9/2002)
On September 3 I gave a talk to the Australian Computer Society entitled "A Different Internet Security Problem – harassment, stalking and identity theft" (you can read the paper here). The talk was partly based on my experiences running this site, and I made special mention of my disgust for anonymous posters. I also mentioned stalking and, true to form, the Gutless Anonymous Liar appeared the next day with the message below. I couldn't have made up a better example myself. Pathetic.

Subject: what a fucking laugh?

I attended your riduclous talk last night and discovered in person what a complete and utter fucking dimwit you are. I also tape recorded your bullshit and couriered off to those who really care.

You crossed the line last night into criminal law: criminal libel and criminal harassment, while boasting fraud and forgery.

The best of luck is not going to help you out of this one.

I wondered what that thing was in the corner of the room – gibbering away, with all that froth dribbling out from under the cardboard box on its head.

Seems the news just keeps getting better as it concerns our stark-raving lunatic Peter Bowditch of Gebesse Pornographers! Invitations and visitations aside, the poor and stupid man has managed to confirm, simply by opening his mouth, that he's a criminally nuts fringe-dweller. He's also managed to indelibly convince members of his

What the site owner Peter Bowditch forgets to mention is his multiple civil actions for libel and defamation and criminal investigations into his acts of fraud and forgery!

But – I mention these matters all the time. Every time some liar emails me about them or mentions them on a newsgroup, I publish the stories here. Of course, mentioning them does not make them true.

Subject: Bowditch: Pet Rock?

For those of you interested in a giggle concerning Peter Bowditch of Gebesse Computer Consultants and Pornographers, it appears the great Australian has been wading through a cue of visitors to his homestead at the lovely and lived in 6 Caprera Way. Others of you may be somewhat offended and protective of MHA's village idiot, so please read on.

Bowditch has broken the law, not to mention having pissed a number of people off. He has been charged and served. Despite having been repeatedly told in the simplest terms that harassment, forgery, fraud and stalking are not protected by his freedom of speech, the thick-skulled dull normal continues to think he can commit whatever crime he likes, while he bellyaches and howls in his vomit-stained undershirt from his front porch.

Bowditch has been described by those who have visited him as a man on the edge who is not quite right. He is umemployed. He is known to local authorities and is considered a threat to only himself and his family.

A recent Australian criminal court ruling found the crown's interpretation of the Telecommunications Act as it pertains to the use of telephones for criminal harassment and stalking applicable to the internet. The flood gates have opened and Bowditch's case will soon be on the docket.

Where are the indignent denials? Where are the lies? C'mon Bowditch! Tell the group what's been happening. Either you tell them or we will. (You know case #'s etc.....)

I can barely contain my excitement at the thought of GAL telling everyone about those "case #'s". I wonder what it is that stops GAL from getting on the fax and sending me the details. Actually, I know the answer to that. It can't send what it doesn't have.

Subject: Thank for the Plug!

Thank you for the plug, Mister Bowditch! I was so delighted to see my site listed, that I just had to thank you! I c.c.'ed my thanks, however, in a little more detail, to your local police. Talked to a rather nice young man named Peroni. He tells me he's looking into other complaints concerning you. Also c.c.'ed some of your government people who regulate you and your ISP. They were kind enough to advise that they too were looking into complaints concerning you and concerning a Mister Jenninigs who hosts your great site! Your government people tell me they're working with the police to have you charged!

How delightful to see you get what you deserve!

By the way, I posted my interest in a usenet group and learned so mucg about you: from extortion to uttering death threats! Good work!

A secret admirer!

I am sure my government has so little to do that it spends time talking to people with no names. I hope GAL has talked to the NSW Director of Public Prosecutions. I received two copies of this email, so it looks like GAL has its nervous tic back (or perhaps the keyboard was just slippery from chin foam).

And one last thing … (4/5/2013)
I hoped it wasn't someone playing a cruel April Fool's joke when I saw this news in the Ottawa Citizen on April 1.

Yes, folks, the beloved William P O'Neill of the Canadian Cancer Research Group and its descendants has gone to the great cesspit in the sky, taking the Gutless Anonymous Liar with him. Sadly, he died quickly and not of cancer. I posted a message to his memorial guest book, but unfortunately some technical glitch prevented it from being published.

I will maintain my own memorial to him here by archiving his correspondence with me and also the wonderful messages he sent wearing his Gutless Anonymous Liar mask. It would be a tragedy for this valuable collection of literature to disappear.
