Well, I never did hear back from Jorgen as far as I remember, but it seems that Rupert Bonham-Smith (or Rupert Smith as he prefers to be called these days) isn't happy about this thread and wants it removed.
Following my previous correspondances I would ask one more time that the thread be removed.
This is for several reasons:
Firstly it lists my full address which is a breach of the data protection act.
Secondly I had no contract with Jorgen on this issue as I gave the item to my girlfriend to sell.
Cutefleur69 is not my ebay account and never has been. If you would check with ebay you will find its the account of Fleur Antoine.
As result its incorrect saying cutefleur69 aka as its not me.
You might want to also remove any reference to evil edna with me as if you check this fictional storyrefers to Rupert Baynham and not myself.
I have been in discussions now with no win no fee libel lawyers who are willing to sue for defamation and breach of data protection act.
Frankly I do not want to waste time and energy going through the courts so I hope very much you will kindly remove this.
I would ask that this be done within the next 10 days or I will issue court summons to seek that it be removed.
I trust this wont be necessary
Now, I like to think that I'm a reasonable person and I don't want anyone to be unhappy, but there has to be a balance somewhere.
Looking back through the thread, I see that the contact details which were published are no longer in the public domain (they were from a whois record which has now expired) so I don't think it's unreasonable to ask for their removal. I have now deleted them.
As for the rest, I am sure that everyone will be reassured to hear Rupert's side of things and can make their own judgement about the Ebay/Paypal issues if they are interested.
For anyone mystified by the reference to Evil Edna, it wasn't actually mentioned in this thread, but was obliquely referred to in the epic Deauville Rally thread
The source is this slightly disturbing story
on The Law of the Playground site. Until last year it was attributed to Rupert Bonham-Smith
after which the name was changed to Rupert Baynham. Clearly a case of mistaken identity.
Hopefully that puts the record straight so there will be no need for Rupert Smith's imaginary libel lawyers to write me any threatening letters.
