We have freedom of speech in this country mate. Say what you want! Like you said, too hot to worry about. Keep up the good work.

Roger, you certainly may speak your mind! I am VERY glad to have your blog back up.
As for 'threats', a very generalized rule of slander/libel is believability. Now, if you said Jacek was a liar, then it would be slander/libel if he said it harmed his reputation and you could not back up your claim. It's within believability. If he's been known to lie before and has a history of lying, then it would be hard to know if he is lying when you accuse him of it.
When you say that Jacek is a Goat Fiddler, he can't even begin to say that you are harming is reputation or anything else unless...unless....oh dear...
carry on...

Glad to have you back Roger !
Don't worry about this Polish Joke,freedom of speech is a basic right for everybody in Europe,this lunatic attacks everybody who disagrees with him on virtually every blog.. He reminds me of a certain question: abort,ignore,retry?
In Germany he's called Popov by some , nobody takes him seriously. This is what makes him really angry, we don't care.
What you cannot do however is to use a picture of him without his permission,so i would advise you to change that,everything else you did is OK apart from the fact that you have to mention the source of the pictures you take from the net if they aren't yours.

Ps. i've bought myself a Nokia N 91 also,i really like it's features..just to piss off CSB i thought i would mention this.

Roger,
The best thing to do is COMPLETELY IGNORE this person you're having trouble with. No matter what he says or does, SAY NOTHING... on your blog, on anyone elses' blog, or in ANY public forum. If he continues to slander/libel you, decide whether you want to pursue legal action, but don't trade mud-slinging for mud-slinging. That will only weaken your potential case against him in the future.

If I were you, I would issue one final statement, which would include a blanket apology for anything YOU might have said or done which offended him, and then NEVER comment publicly about him again. I would also remove any comments you've made about him in your blog, and remove the Goat Fiddler image. Do not antagonize. Ignore.

This way, you've cleaned up your own side of the street, and if he continues to harrass you you can decide whether you wish to take legal action against him at that point.

Best advice... IGNORE HIM. These people get their energy from all the attention they get. I'm willing to bet that if you pay him ZERO attention, he will at some point go away.

Unless the Police actually come knocking on your door and tell you to take down the comments then you have nothing to worry about. There is nothing Jacek can do, no matter how much he bullshits about reporting/suing you.

It is a crime to threaten legal action and then never complete the legal action in some countries..Jacek may yet be shut up..

When you consider how much Jacek censors on his own blog in the comments people make, it's only blogs like this that can actually tell the truth.

If you point out his errors, he labels it libel or slander. Not so here and that is what gets under his skin... he wants to control you just as he has controlled other bloggers before you.

Well done Roger! Don't let him get you down.

Sorry WLB, I can't agree. Although it sounds like a good pacifist plan, it won't really work with bullies. Taking down what has been posted will give him the satisfaction of overpowering a weaker 'opponent' and he doesn't deserve that. Besides that, we all know that nothing is ever really 'erased' from the internet anyway. Even Jacek knows that. :) Now, using his photo...well...that 'may' fall under editorialism. Back to believability. If the photo was realistic enough to give a false impression of something being true that is not true, then there may be a problem. As for copyright violation...maybe, maybe not in the way it was edited. OK, I might take it down to be on the safe side, but not because I was sure it should be removed.

You are a sensitive guy RS, so I am not surprised you are spooked.

What surprises me is how the podcasting community and AC let him get away without censure following his unpleasant jewish comment.

He needs the oxygen of your commment, so my view is that you should suffocate him.

Stick with the community that likes you Roger.

Welcome back Roger.

From now on I'd say just ignore him completely. That'll really hack him off. He lives off winding people up so he can attack them when they answer back. If no-one responds then his whole raison d'etre is gone.

Now - how's that snazzy phone coming along ? I handled one in the Orange shop the other day and was surprised at how much smaller it is than it looks in the pics. However, despite having paid full whack for my last two Nokias when they first came out through Orange (7650 and 6600), they are now wanting over £100 for an N70 upgrade even though the N80 is now out to replace it. Having been a loyal customer since 1999 I'm a tad disgruntled. They give them away free to new customers. So much for their big "treat existing customers as you would treat new ones" campaign. Bah.

Welcome back Roger, I was worried that the bullies had won. Glad to see they haven't.
Ignore the hypocritical one. From what I've read, he appears to be at least an anti-semitic homophobe. The Comic Strip 215 of his, where he claims that the bad points of Richard Bluestein are being gay and jewish really hacks me off. He should not be given airtime or blogspace.
Why are we wasting energy on that negative source?
Just blog how you want Roger, and try to steer clear from slanging matches with "IT"!
Karma is a wonderful thing. One of these days, his actions will be his downfall, and won't that be enjoyable to watch!

I respect your remarks, Elaine, but I firmly disagree. This approach has never failed me where internet BS is concerned. Now, if they're physically standing in front of me with a club, ignoring might not be the best option. ;>) With internet trolls, it's not about what they say, it's about the attention they need, and this is the way they get it. Don't pay attention, they go elsewhere to get it. If the remarks are onerous enough or specific threats are made, the correct route would be to pursue legal action while NOT continuing a public fight on the internet.

If the fire is not fed, it goes out.

Roger, great comment on DSC today. I really do find you funny. I think you handled the whole thing well today.
WLB, can we agree on this? Ignoring him in the future is a good plan. Either that or kill him with kindness, whichever works for the individual. :) BTW, thank you for the considerate tone of 'voice'. It sure goes a long way in electronic communication. :)
Re: the Nokia phone. Well Fey! Even if I can get it at a pretty price in the US, Nextel won't touch it and that's the service I prefer to use. oh well, anyone want to donate a Blackberry?

What happened anyways Roger? what was the issue the police had with your blog? I havn't kept up on my DSC in the last couple weeks and was surprised when I heard you had to stop blogging because of police.

Roger, don't stop blogging just because someone who's jealous of your looks and new phone can't deal with it (as AC would say). Keep it up and whatever else anybody may say about you doesn't matter at all.

We like your stuff, and jealous 'barking little doggies' (as Comic Strip Blogger would say) shouldn't get in your way - life's too short for your enjoyment to be hindered by such tiny pests.

I got bitten by a gnat on Friday, but I'm still here ;-)

Can we draw a line under this bollox? Grace has been evicted, Sam is a MTF recovered, and Nikki is free to get emotional.

Roger, get a grip and focus on what matters.

Who's next, you decide
