As anyone who writes and publishes their work online will testify, there will always be someone, or as is more often the case these days, groups of people, who will be offended by or will take issue, or simply do not like, or have any number of reasons to feel uncomfortable with what you are writing about; and will do almost anything in their attempts to stop you.
Since it’s inception in 2012, the Outlaw and it’s creator/owner/administrator, ie: Yours Truly, has been the target of every type of accusation that it is possible to imagine, and I’ll not bore you with the details as they are hardly worth mentioning, but the notable examples are the accusations, threats and general fantastical claims that emanate on a regular basis from a certain dark corner of the www, inhabited by people who border on the clinically insane …. and these people remain, to this day, completely convinced that I have zero input on this site, and cannot possibly run it on my own – so of course, in their minds at least, the day -to- day running and the costs incurred on the Outlaw must be the work of the ‘British Establishment’ and the North Wales Police.
‘Running interference for the establishment’ and my supposed role in ‘Stifling the truth about abuse’ are among the allegations made regularly, and understandably, I was curious to find out as to what type of mind could, and would concoct such paranoid nonsense.
The second set of comments speak for themselves, inasmuch as they are inferring that the running of this site has now changed hands, and has somehow miraculously, reincarnated into some type of platform for the British Security Services, is now Funded by the Taxpayer, and it’s owner (Me again) is ‘Not only a grass, but a fully paid up shill protected by the police’ – or so this persons ‘friend’ (anonymous of course) told him.
Ordinarily, stuff like this is fairly mundane, is laughable and is pretty much an everyday occurrence for people who publish online in any capacity, and is easily dismissed as the ramblings of some disgruntled, deeply disturbed and deluded individuals and can, and should be ignored as it’s complete fantasy and should be treated as such.
It is all too easy to be dragged down by this kind of rubbish, and if one was in any way paranoid or vulnerable, it can play on your mind, and some genuine people who have been targeted online to any degree have had no option but to close down what were some very informative and useful websites and social media accounts as a result.
Apart from the obvious implications, many people have also been denied their basic human right to a voice, and some of these voices belonged to some very vulnerable people indeed, and were purposely targeted by people very much like those responsible for the comments above.
I am not going to elaborate on the real reasons why this site in particular has been targeted by the types who posted the comments I have used, until a time when the suspicions I have can be backed up with evidence; so I will instead concentrate on something more troubling, and if taken seriously, more than a little dangerous to the unfortunate recipient.
If one was to perform an online search for this website, one of those results would be to a ‘Blogger’ site [outlawjimmy.blogspot] the content of which is pictured below and it should be obvious as to it’s intent.
This site has been online since December 2013, and until recently, I have not paid it any attention as tracking down the authors of these type of postings is notoriously difficult, and a total waste of valuable resources if one was to waste the relevant authorities’ time by reporting them.
The site has also been circulated among a few anonymous trolls on Twitter and has been re-published on at least two WordPress blogs, that have since been subsequently suspended for abusive content and violations of the blogging platform’s Terms of Service.
It’s only because some information has become available recently, which has clearly identified the publisher of the blogspot post, that I am even bothering to highlight it here, as it does give an insight into what may be in part, the reason why these online entities create such chaos and continually subject people to utter misery and fear and distress on a daily basis.
At the bottom of the post,[above] the author has used his own name to publish the malicious article, which according to Google+, still has an active account listed.
‘Mark Fisher’, who after only a few short minutes searching for, was found to be living in Lockwood, Huddersfield, Yorkshire, and has a easily traceable history of making similar malicious allegations about a number of people.
So what became of Mr Fisher?
‘An Internet troll who branded innocent people paedophiles and terrorists has been convicted of harassment. Fantasist Mark Fisher, 44, posted damaging comments online about people he held a grudge against.
One of his victims, a schoolteacher, has been unable to return to work because of the false allegations he made.
Some of his victims were wrongly linked to terrorism while Fisher accused another of causing the death of her husband – who was killed by a tragic accident.
Fisher was convicted after a trial of nine charges under the Malicious Communications Act of updating a website with grossly offensive articles and found guilty of a further charge of harassment.
He has mental health issues and was ordered to be detained in hospital for at least six months.
District Judge Michael Fanning told him: “You have made harmful and utterly baseless allegations against a number of individuals. The allegations you made were a fantasy and in one instance you harmed the career of one of your victims.”
The court heard that Fisher initially targeted one male victim with his lies.
Vanessa Jones, prosecuting, said: ” Mr Fisher published on a couple of blog sites and Facebook some unpleasant information about this gentleman in relation to paedophile involvement.”
Fisher put a picture of the victim on the social network with a link to a website linked with a well known sex offender. He also claimed on his page that he had details of ‘suspected perverts’, living in Huddersfield, West Yorks.
The victim told Fisher that the information was false and asked him to take the information off the site, which he refused to do.
Others who knew Fisher responded and told him they were not happy about him making these claims.
Mrs Jones said: “Four other people who knew Mr Fisher expressed their displeasure. They were added to the list that Mr Fisher felt were part of paedophile involvement. One of the complainants is a teacher and because of the information still on Facebook she can’t work.”
The court heard that Fisher, who had no previous convictions, suffers from mental illness.
Sentencing at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court, Judge Fanning told him: “The allegations you made against them are a fantasy, linking them to paedophilia.”
In making the hospital order, he added: ” I am satisfied that you will continue to offend against these individuals or cast your net wider to involve those against whom you hold a grudge.”
Fisher, of Lockwood, Huddersfield, will be kept in hospital for an initial six-month term. Upon his release, he must comply with a restraining order, banning him from contacting six named victims.
He is also banned from posting any images or material about them online.
In addition he is prohibited from maintaining the material already published by him, meaning that any offensive posts will need to be taken down.
I have never met Mark Fisher from Huddersfield, I have never once spoken to him in person, or interacted with him online, (other than removing a number of his comments on this site) and prior to his ridiculous allegations, I had never heard of him.
I have never met any of the others that I have highlighted here either, although I am well aware of them, since they have targeted me in a similar manner and have made dozens of completely false and malicious allegations about me (and others) over the past four or five years.
As far as I am aware, not one of them have ever met me, have never spoken to me in person, and know absolutely nothing about me other than whatever rubbish they have gleaned from online searches, and what appear to be entirely fictitious accounts told to them by others, of which only one, or possibly two, have actually met me in person.
Mr Fisher, sadly suffers from some evidenced mental health issues, so unfortunately there is little that I -or anybody else – can do to curb his delusionary accusations in regard to myself, and can only speculate as to the reasons why he would target me, or anyone else, using the methods he has employed.
If I had to guess, however, it would be that he had either found the information online, as it was already available on the two now-defunct WordPress blogs I referred to earlier, and was shared on a number of now-deleted Twitter accounts – or that he was purposely fed the false information by somebody in his immediate area, who cruelly preyed on his mental health status, and evidenced history of publishing categorically untrue and wholly malicious content online.
I am only aware of one person who lives in the same area as Mr. Fisher, and they, [coincidentally] post on the same platform that the comments at the top of this article were taken from, (and have also made a number of false allegations) so I can only speculate on that being the case, until evidence emerges to confirm, or disregard that as an avenue of further investigation.
There are I believe, marked similarities between the people who post these type of malicious and entirely false allegations, however, and the obvious one appears to be, that there are mental issues which impel them to fixate on people they select, and who they truly believe have wronged them somehow …. or they exhibit a type of religious zeal, similar to the type which was evident in a number of recent cases, relating to the wrongful accusations of a number of people who were subsequently acquitted after being accused of childhood sexual abuse in North Wales.
Or it could be for some other reason entirely …. Because whatever way you choose to look at it, all these people are connected, albeit tenuously.
So with that in mind, I reserve the right to defend both myself, my family, my friends (and my own sanity) from false and malicious claims against me, and others, using whatever methods are legally available to me.
