Here’s a strange thing. I’ve started receiving emails from someone claiming to have infected my computer with a virus.
That’s all I know as I found them in my junk mailbox and didn’t open them. I deleted them instead.
Presumably there’s a threat to do some kind of harm to my system, or to publish secrets that I don’t want people to know, if I don’t cough up some cash. There’s always a threat of some kind involved in these things.
As I say, I deleted the messages so I don’t know what it was. It’s my policy, for reasons that should be obvious.
But then I thought: “Why now?”
We know that supporters of the two TV personalities who are alleging libel against me are skilled in tracking down people they want to target.
Those people, their relatives and friends, employers, and the heads of academic institutions where some are studying have been contacted with malicious messages. That fact is one aspect of my case.
I heard tonight that one person lost their job because of the lies these people peddle.
That revelation made me question whether the emails I had received might have been sent by supporters of my opponents, with the intention – at the very least – of knocking me off-balance; re-directing my concentration away from the case.
I wonder if those responsible will take this any further.
I wonder, also, if right-thinking people are prepared to accept that supporters of my opponents are invading the privacy of strangers in order to harm them.
If not, I’ve got a remedy: Support my crowdfunding appeal so I can defend myself against the false claims levelled against me.
I cannot win this case on my own and the amount raised so far – while impressive – isn’t enough to see a court case through to its conclusion.
Think of it this way: If you say something these people don’t like, you could be next on their list.
And that is not a welcome thought!
If you have already contributed, please don’t feel pressured into doing so again unless you genuinely have the spare cash to justify it. If you haven’t – and you can – please do.
And please share information about the appeal, along with this message.
You can do this several ways:
- Email five friends who may be sympathetic, and encourage them to donate.
- Share the campaign on Facebook: https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/
- Tweet the campaign link to your followers.
Too few people know about this! We need to make the world aware of what’s happening here.
Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
