But wait, there's more! (26/11/2011)
Just as I was about to upload this week's edition an absolutely wonderful email came in from Marc Stephens, spokesmouth for the Burzynski Clinic. It was addressed to a large number of people, some of whom had never heard of Dr Burzynski, and included some bizarre images (plus a YouTube video of my friend Darryl) with lots of red arrows. One of the people attacked in the email, Dr Saul Green, can't defend himself because he died in 2007, but since when has recognition of facts ever bothered anyone associated with Burzynski. It's a bit long for the front page, so I will just give the introduction here and put the full glory of the thing on a separate page. (Note: One of the recipients had been talking to lawyers about Mr Stephens' threats and had requested anonymity for the time being, so all mentions of him were originally redacted. His name is back in, and his web site is back on the air.)

Just so you know that I am very serious. I copied Renee Trimble the Director of Public Relations, and Azad Rastegar the spokesperson for the Burzynski Clinic. You and your supporters can stop asking if I am an attorney. Again, I represent the Burzynski Clinic, Burzynski Research Institute, and Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski. If your articles remain online I will pursue you in court to the highest extent of the law.
Threats to your family? You mentioned to me that you just had a child. I advised you to spend more time with your child instead of lying to the public. I also advised that you will be affected financially once a lawsuit is filed against you. Why would you be so selfish and inconsiderate to your family to go through the stressful and financial burden of multiple court proceedings knowing that you are posting lies and propaganda?
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
You are apart of a network started by Michael Shermer called “Skeptic Society”--http://www.skeptic.com/, which is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational organization that examines....alien abductions”. Your network is linked to other fraudulent websites and individuals, such as, quackwatch.com, ratbags.com, the21stfloor, Peter Bowditch, Rhys Morgan, Stephen Barrett, Dr. Saul Green, etc. I also have you guys linked to the Wikipedia page of my client. You should know that the IP Address is publicly recorded by Wiki. A subpoena is used to obtain your personal information. By law, the government does not need to notify you, or disclose when they are pursuing your personal information. see Wikileak personal information.
You define your network as individuals that “prefers beliefs and conclusions that are reliable and valid.... A skeptic provisionally proportions acceptance of any claim to valid logic and a fair and thorough assessment of available evidence”. Your evidence comes from Stephen Barrett and Saul Green who are apart of your skeptic network, so how fair and valid are your assessments..?
You are fully aware that the quackwatch website is not reliable, valid, fair, or a thorough assessment of available evidence, and that its owner, and your network, were exposed as frauds, not licensed, and maliciously disseminating false information to the public. Your Skeptic network uses the quackwatch.com website as the Bible to your mission of lying to the public. You are not posting your “opinion” and “concern for public health”, you and your network are posting malicious propaganda against my client which stretches back over 10 years.
Your opinion and concern for public health “defense” will not stand up in court. Your statements are not True, you have no absolute, conditional, legal privileges, or consent to post, and your statements consist of actual malice. As you already know, Dr. Burzynski is a public figure and the Burzynski Research Institute is a publicly traded organization. So your libelous statements are now interfering with business contracts and business relationships. The information you assert in your article is factually incorrect, and posted with either actual knowledge, or reckless disregard for its falsity.
Again, I advise you to shut down all libelous articles about my client immediately. Your network is full of lawyers, and I am sure they know the source of information that you use, such as quackwatch, are considered fraudulent and void, in addition to the conflict of interest between my client and Saul Green. I am showing that you have no source of information, and you will not be able to show proof of your statements against my client in court. What is the source of your allegations? You formulated your opinion based on statements made by other skeptics blogs, and Quackwatch, which consist of false information per court orders. Opinions must be supported by facts. You are aware of the fact that my client is involved with FDA approved clinical trials, completed phase II, and has approach Phase III. Phase II, as you know,--- to see if it is effective and to further evaluate its safety. You have full access to evaluate the data of Antineoplaston phase II results, you and your entire skeptic network refuse to acknowledge the results.
Let me quote what's on your website: “When we say we are “skeptical,” we mean that we must see compelling evidence before we believe”. Here is some compelling evidence for you about your network. I will use this information in my legal complaint filed against you and many of your associates. You no longer have a right to an opinion when its proved your acts are malicious.

This is a very serious matter. Be smart like Rhys Morgan and everyone else..including Google when I went after them. If your articles are still up I will pursue you. You have no defense, Andy. Honestly, what do you think the judge and jury are going to think about you when I disclose your connection, propaganda, and false information? Its not about your message, its about the context of your message. The context of your posting is to create in the public the belief that my clients are disreputable, are engaged in on-going criminal activity, and must be avoided by the public.
This email proves you and your skeptic network are maliciously attacking my client. ALL of the negative information on the internet about my client is linked to your skeptic network. I will prove this in court. Do me a favor and post this email on your website..that is another pattern of your skeptic network. I would greatly appreciate it.
Please remove all articles Immediately. Spread the message to your associates.
