On March 24th, at 10:51:31 AM somebody with the IP (126.96.36.199) who uses a dsl line with Bell Canada (sympatico Hi-speed edition!) and lives in Ottawa, Ontario stumbles upon the Bayblab. The person in question uses a windows XP machine, a screen resolution of 1280X1024 and Microsoft internet explorer 7.0. I warmly recommend to use firefox over MSIE 7.0 by the way.
At 10:51:45 AM He does a search on google.ca/blogsearch for "Canadian cancer research group"
At 11:00:29 AM He looks on technorati for who lists the bayblab as their favorite, come up with a name of a fan of the bayblab.
at 11:41:50 William O'Neil then sends an email to the yahoo account of the fan saying something like this: "If you don't remove all material concerning me or my company by monday March 26th, I will sue you for defamation". The crazy part is that the website was not even setup by that person so he's threatening the wrong person. I guess he has no other name to go by.
At 12:32:31 He does a search on the bayblab looking for "O'Neil". Too bad that name is never mentioned by us just quoted ad verbatim from quackwatch.
At 12:33:27 He puts an "anonymous" comment on the blog: "hey fuckwad! post a peer reviewed study demonstrating the efficacy of chemotherapy. goodluck...." Ouch somebody called me fuckwad, that's rude, my feelings are hurt. Yet another chemotherapy denier!
Geez thank god the internet is not anonymous...Somebody got his IP blocked!!!
BREAKING NEWS, seems our admirer is not only harassing some of the OHRI senior scientists but is also trying to manipulate some of our employer (which is an offense under canadian law) and trying to get us fired by contacting Dr. Worton, the CEO of the OHRI. Little does he know that the OHRI's legal department does not care about this, and all he is doing, is angering people higher up.
Due to inadequate libel laws and lack of regulation of alternative medecine here in Ontario, quackery can prevail and free speech is muffled. I decided to slightly modify the post as a precaution. Just shows how antiquated the laws are in Canada and in the USA. Mr Oneil is actually operating his clinic within the law (or gray area), for the time being.
It seems Mr. O'Neil has nothing better to do than harass cancer researchers (from his work at 188.8.131.52). He sent another email this time claiming that he owns copyrights to his name and the name of his company. However according to Canadian law "Titles, names and short word combinations are usually not protected by copyright. A "work" or other "subject matter" for copyright purposes must be something more substantial. "
Links, Url and metatags are definitely not protected under copyright law in Canada. I guess this man just can't handle criticism by real scientists... how about you justify your claims Mr' O'Neil.
Has your method been published in any peer-reviewed publication? How do vitamins and amino-acids contribute to treating cancer and what is the efficacy? We'll gladely invite you to the podcast if you want to debate with real scientists.
