Mr O'Neill may not have been aware that it could be risky to post a message like this to the newsgroup alt.usenet.kooks in a thread discussing an annual award in honour of one of the all-time great madmen of the 'net.

Mr. Peter Bowditch of the Millenium Project,, and Gebesse Computer Consulting,, and as a member of the Australian Computer Society has, for the better part of a year, been posting fraudulent, libelous, and defamatory information concerning the Canadian Cancer Research Group, Mr. William P. O'Neill, and the O'Neill family. Mr. Bowditch has been advised that his continued publication of information and absence of retraction and apology will percipitate legal action.

Legal action commenced on June 26, 2001, where Statements of Claim have been filed in relevant jursidictions naming Mr. Bowditch as defendant and claiming that Mr. Bowditch has knowingly published and re-published information that is libelous and defamatory. Server logs demonstrating that Mr. Bowditch, or someone accessing his server/computer, has repeatedly spoofed IP addresses and hijacked email accounts, belonging to the Canadian Cancer Research Group, have been turned over to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, where, in turn, logs have been given to Interpol, where a criminal investigation have been initiated.

All information published by Mr. Bowditch concerning the Canadian Cancer Research Group, Mr. William P. O'Neill, and the O'Neill family has no basis in fact, is absolutely false, intentionally misleading, libelous, defamatory and as such, is subject to civil litigation in both Canada and Australia and litigation has been intitiated. Matters concerning computer fraud, as allegedly committed by Mr. Bowditch, are now the subject of criminal investigations.

The Canadian Cancer Research Group has repeatedly attempted to gain cooperation from Mr. Bowditch and the Australian Computer Society. Both have intentionally ignored and intensified their respective campaigns of abuse and fraud. As it concerns the Australian Computer Society, the Canadian Cancer Research Group has made respresentation to the Canadian Computer Society in seeking sanctions against the Australian Computer Society in its' support and encouragement of member and society activity that is in conflict with society ethics.

In the event you are exposed to materials concerning the foregoing matters, please email the Canadian Cancer Research Group at

14 days and counting......

It seems, Mr. Bowditch, your days are numbered in more ways than one. Not only is that grand icon of commerce, "gebeese", on the skids, but we understand you've had a spot of heart trouble. And heres the fun part: although, you thought you had your ISP in your back pocket, you might want to give Jason a call. Apparently even Jason is just a little fed up with you and your rather silly and intolerable antics.

And, remember Peter, (we're sure it's not the first time you've heard this one)....."you make your own bed".

Of course, I have no proof that this anonymous message came from Mr O'Neill. I am not even going to suggest that he would be the sort of coward who would hide behind an anonymizer service. I have just included it here because the literary style fits in with what is around it. Just in case, I spoke to the only "Jason" I could think of and he told me that nobody had contacted him and he wasn't going to do anything if anyone did.

Another in that familiar style. Again, I would not suggest that Mr O'Neill was the anonymous coward who wrote this. I assume the "terry" is a doctor I know who has a web site critical of medical frauds. I received a couple of gloating emails from people pointing out that his site had been closed down when the truth was that it was being moved from one server to another and was temporarily unavailable. They all told me that I was going to be next, a tactic which simply generates another mirror of this site somewhere on the web each time it is said. archiveFrom:

Just Imagine:

Mr. Peter Bowditch, of New South Wales, eKingpin of that soaring intellectual eProperty known as the Millenium Project, has lost his final appeal in a desperate attempt to save the only thing in life that gives him joy. The Millenium Project has been cited in numerous legal claims and proceedings, and Mr. Bowditch has been charged with criminal lunacy.

It seems, in Mr. Bowditch's journey to save the world from what he doesn't/can't understand, he inadvertantly shot himself in his ass and foot. Not only has Mr. Bowditch been found guilty of being a reprehensible son-of-a-bitch, but also a downright imbecile and nasty little prick.

Mr. Bowditch has been sentenced to live out the rest of his pathetic useless life pacing the halls of his corporate giantess, gebeese consulting, aka his basement, whilst staring at his dull and lifeless image in unplugged video monitor.

Supporters of Bowditch cried injustice. Even his wife came to his support saying..."Peter may be a useless turd, but he's still my Peter", (whatever the hell that means.)

Again I must stress that this anonymous message is only included because it fits into the context. I am not suggesting that it came from Mr O'Neill, even though it looks like it came from his spelling and grammar checker and misspells the name "Gebesse" in the same way he does. I am watching my fax machine closely for the stream of "numerous legal claims and proceedings".

We're sure it's not news to you, but Polevoy's site was taken down on Tuesday, July 4, 2000,and will not be supported by any Canadian ISP. It's content and intent has been deemed as hate.

We have received confirmation that, despite your mindless objections, yours is coming down too!

Bye Bye

Another message that very likely did not come from Mr O'Neill (otherwise he would have signed it with one of his many aliases or versions of me). It is only included here because Mr O'Neill once pretended to be the Dr Polevoy in question (another person who mentions Mr O'Neill and CCRG). You can click on to find the site he says has been closed down. As this message talks about my site closing down it has, of course, generated another copy of the site somewhere on the web.

You wouldn't know truth if it bit you in the ass.

Is there anyhting you won't react to or anything you won't publish? My god, man, do get a grip.

We've been monitoring your site for quite awhile, and, frankly, with every new pixel, you give yourself away.

Here's some free advice:


These are probably not from Mr O'Neill (because he would have used his own name or a version of mine), but they are included here because of the remarkable coincidence of style – the same sentiments, punctuation and even spelling. It must also have been a coincidence that I had not heard from either Mr O'Neill or the gutless anonymous liar for some time and then they both wrote to me on the same day. By the way, I live in a house, not a "tenment", my company issued fourteen invoices during July 2000 (it is a consulting business so we don't necessarily invoice every day) and sales are well up compared to the same month last year, nobody other than me, my accountant or the Australian Taxation Office knows anything about my tax "filings" (which are called "returns" in Australia, a fact known to anyone with any knowledge of such things), and my wife works for the same company that I do. archiveFrom:

To those of you, of which I'm sure are many, who have been watching and particpating in Mr. Bowditch's therapy (sublimating his obsessive compulsive need for attention through public displays of indecency by wanking off on his Atari computer), I was intrigued by Mr. Bowditch's intuitions as I trolled usenet with a recent commentary about he and his bum buddies: Barrett, Baratz, and Polevoy.

Firstly Mr. Bowditch there is more than one computer on the IP that you solely attribute to one poor man for whom you propagate outrageous lies, deception, libel, and fraud. Given your pathology, you would be incapable of concluding otherwise. Secondly, I take, as does your ISP, and your ISP's ISP exception to the utter filth and lies that you so blatantly publish on your web site and in various usenet groups.

So here's the challenge (and god knows you are incapable of not rising to it you stimulus-bound pervert): just try to save your web site! You see, I have taken the liberty, as I have encouraged others, to visit your web site and pass it on to those who really care. I see, by your own admission, your governing "professional" body, the Austrlain Computer Society supports hate, libel, defamation and fraud on the internet (surely they must support pornography as well!), so they'll likely not be interested. But, I assure you others are.

And by the way, I was very intrigued by the Tripod tribute sites. Staff were kind enough to search their logs and report back that, as a matter fact, you were the author. My, my, such deception!

Thank you Mr. Bowditch for responding to my troll. But more importantly, thank you for cranking up your psychoses so that others are now free to sanction that crazy son-of-a-bitch from the world's largest prison.

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.
