Support for Dr. Polevoy by Peter Bowditch
Peter Bowditch has been a victim of vicious threats against himself and his family over the years. Here is Peter's e-mail that he sent to Bluehost.com's legal staff in support of Dr. Polevoy.
I have been informed that following a complaint from Mr William P O'Neill of the Canadian Cancer Research Group you have disabled the web site of Dr Terry Polevoy at http://www.healthwatcher.net/
Before acting on complaints made by Mr O'Neill it might be worthwhile looking at Mr O'Neill's history of complaints and the character of the man himself.
At http://www.ratbags.com/rsoles/onews/onews.htm you can see several years' worth of attacks on me and my family by Mr O'Neill. If you care to wade through the bilge you can see several obscene references to my wife and daughters.
At http://www.ratbags.com/rsoles/onews/gal.htm you can see more of the same where Mr O'Neill made anonymous comments. I used to pretend that I didn't know it was him until he commented about the birth of my grandson with the message "kill it quick and kill it good before it multiplies" to a public newsgroup.
(You can see the post at Google Groups)
It's not just Dr Polevoy and I who have a poor opinion of Mr O'Neill. You can see a television show about him at W-FIVE in which he says that he can cure cancer and then denies saying it when presented with the evidence of the statement.Please reinstate Dr Polevoy's web site. If you are going to act on complaints, then at least limit that action to complaints made by people whose opinions might matter.
This email will be published on my web site, The Millenium Project, and I will report your response as soon as I know what it is.
Thank you.-- Peter Bowditch
