Alisher Usmanov Ugly Individual and Blog Bully

This man , who is trying to buy Arsenal and his hired Legal Bullies from Shillings need to be opposed. Shutting down web servers is not a good plan to make your case buddy. Especially if one of the sites shut down is a sitting Member of Parliament.


Justin is leading the charge.

Mr Eugenides has a good summary.

Harry's Place cuts to the chase.

Bloggers cannot operate if they are bullied by rich plaintiffs. Defamation law in the United Kingdom is both farcical and unfair, and is in desperate need of fundamental reform. Errors on blogs can easily be remedied: particularly where they permit open commenting (a libel risk in itself) which allows postings to be criticised, facts corrected, and arguments opposed. I know what it is like to be at the receiving end of a well funded threat of defamation proceedings, and it is no fun at all. It is outrageous that the law of defamation should be used to break bloggers: like butterflies upon wheels.

Frankly, we might as well shut up shop altogether if we do not stick together on this issue.

Wonkos World has the offending article.

Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid. Next it will be you when you criticise Gordo, Tony, Sherrie, Dave, Guido and the like.

Say no to Alisher Usmanov.

And for those of you on Justins link love list, yes you on the link list below (Have you noticed your Technorati Ranking lately?) wishing to take additional protective measures against Uzbek retribution, head on over to Geiger Counter Warehouse.

This model is available for a radiation clicking steal of $195 plus shipping. A bargain when you think of the downside. You can discretely screen your Borscht before tucking in stress free.

I thought about emailing Mr Usmanov directly, but although I could find the word "fat" I couldn't find "c*nt" in my English-Russian dictionary.

Sean Jeating said...

My closest friend Tetrapilotomos right now told me that last night he had a wonderful dream: Mr. Usmanov woke up and henceforth spoke a very rare Hindu dialect.

You always have a great alternate take on issues. Very commendable.

Well stated.

Not to worry, Colin - he'll be dead in a few years, by the look of him.
