Lets get the ball rolling

The latest update, Mr Barford now thinks he a victim of harassment and blackmail, and want's to push the issue of copyright infringement aside, just a minor detail.
He sent me a private email today, with doctored messages I have meant to have sent to him, which he has now handed over to the police. He say’s I threaten to kill him by shoving a Red Hot Poker up his arse. Here is an image of a Red hot Poker, they just love it in peaty soil.

I would just like to thank all those people who have emailed me, and supported me.
Now many of you would have seen his personal blog, where he hosted my video’s directly as well as uploading photographs from my on line album, which was completely illegal may I add. He also posted up many personal bits of information, like eBay accounts, and employment history.
Now just to help with a future court case against him, always good to have a few witness statements, anyone who has suffered harassment from his blogs over the years, or who saw the ones posted about me. Send me a message either HARASSMENT or WITNESSED HIS BLOG. That should get the ball rolling to:

What long coffee breaks you have....

This really makes me laugh, Paul says I run my blog as a coffee break activity all I can say is your coffee breaks must last from 6am in the morning to the early hours, and the amount of coffee drunk would have caused a world shortage. Also the fact you were running so many blogs, would have required more staff than the White House to manage. You also contradited yourself slightly, why worry about the amount of people searching you blog for copyright infringements, if you say there is none to be found.  
If I was a serial spammer on your blog, why was I on your friends list? Where you only accepted comments from those invited. Duh! If I had been causing a problem you would have removed me from your list.
I did tell you I had met some Polish people that wanted to come and see you, but because you didn’t give me your address, it did make it quite difficult, Poland’s a big place, init!.
Any Polish metal detectorists who are threatening you, is probably down to your own popularity Worldwide, not just in the U.K.
Also when you say four hard years of work will be lost, remember we are only talking coffee breaks here.
Ever thought of becoming a comedian.

Lies, lies and more lies

The issue of Paul downing his blogs is nothing to do with blackmail, more to do with him editing his blogs of all the evidence.. He knew that dozens of people throughout this period had objected to copyright infringement, and had said so in his blogs. This is a smoke screen and stalling tactic yet again put up by Paul, because he knew if he left his blogs up they would indeed be removed. You have not told your supporters on The Heritage Action blog, of your personal blog you did of me, or are you too embarrassed .  I have no problem of your blogs going back up, as I have plenty of evidence to hand to Carter Ruck.

I would just like to say Paul you are a nasty vindictive little man, who has gone out of his way to hurt others. You now have the taste of your own medicine as the people you have attacked over the years are now hitting back, in an organised way.

You forgot the Russian agents

I think Nigel Swift should get the full facts before printing any old crap Paul Barford tells him, the issue is copyright infringement, over 120 images @£500 each, which he refuses to pay. I gave Paul the choice of avoiding court costs, but is now trying to wriggle his way out, yet again, by a series off accusation, of blackmail and Polish mafia. It will be Russian agents with poison umbrellas next. You live in your own little fantasy world Paul, and give MI5 a call while your at it.  Oh! whats that noise outside, it must be a load of angry metal detectorists banging at my door. You've had your wings clipped and now your pissed off. Have you thought about writing childrens books, you seem to have a good imagination.

If you owe money just pay up, and stop acting like a prat.

Copyright the law

Read this Barford, you seem to be a little slow at understanding copyright.

The Truth

Paul Barford, in trying to damage my business and reputation with his blog, linking to all my personal information. He has attacked me for 3 months on his heritage blog, with accusations bordering on libel. I did not want my address and telephone number broadcast to the world, as I am ex directory. Also an image has appeared on my computer wall paper which had been used as an avatar on Paul’s blog, I did not put it there, so has someone hacked my computer, which is an criminal offence.

I am considering contacting the police, as this has caused me untold stress to myself and my family.

Mr. Barford

Time to call it a day Paul, you obviously need me to spell it out to you . You have three choices to make:
1. you either make an out of court settlement for copyright infringements and damages to my reputation, In which I will send you an invoice tonight for £10,000, as you were aware in an earlier email I sent you on the 2nd August that I said the images were my copyright and they were £500 each.You actually uploaded over 120 of them, even though you were aware of the cost.

May I suggest you seek legal advice, because it is you that has clearly broken the law not me!

You have made no attempt to pay for there use, and I did not give you permission to use them in this manner. You also added items of Treasure making it look like I had found these, and not declared them under the Treasure Act.
2. Second choice is delete all you blogs on heritage subjects, and never write one again, if you do I will still take action out on you, as they have been vindictive in the way you have written them  about me. You have clearly tried to damage my reputation.
3. If I do not hear by Saturday 17th September 2011 at 6.00pm, that you have not opted for one of the other choices on offer , I will instruct Carter Ruck on Monday to sue you for copyright infringements, malicious falsehoods and damage to my reputation, by putting up personal information on the web for all to see, and publishing my address. They have already told me you cannot win, so it’s up to you. Carter Ruck will get your address from Google as they have all your details, and they will have to supply it, when a writ is issued.
You are still trying to stir up trouble as we speak, by twisting the truth on other blogs, but facts speak for themselves, you have clearly stolen the images that I host on my web sites.  It is useless removing item from your blog as we already have hard copies of the original blog you did, with the images clearly seen.

The Unknown Club Member and His Finds (I)

For a decade and a half it has been recognised that metal detecting is a hugely enjoyable outdoor hobby that can bring enormous public benefits by producing new evidence about the past. There is a Code of Responsible Practice for Metal Detectorists in England to which all members of our club adhere. Sadly there are history seekers out there who do not. Some of them are happy to report to the authorities which they obviously hate and distrust so much those finds that will get them in the newspapers or for which they'll be paid a cash reward. These people are less forthcoming outside metal detecting circles about his other finds. They obviously feel that "sharing the information" with the public consists of sticking a few dozen photos of things they have found on Flicr or similar public media and that's enough. One of the guys who seems to represent this school of thought has been an active member of the forum of the breakaway heritage society formed by Steve Tayler in April (more about this later) and has deceptively adopted a screen name extremely similar to one used by our Steve in the past ("ChainmAIL", instead of "ChainmALE"). This is a sneaky trick to hide his identity and we feel sure that Steve will take steps to make sure this individual acts more responsibly in future. Let's take a look at the gallery of finds he has made.

The metal detectorist who posted these finds in a public gallery apparently thought it was enough to share his finds with the public by putting them up on a photo gallery to be seen, but there is no information given attached to any of them where they come from, and which ones have been reported to the PAS as is required by the Code of Practice for Responsible Metal Detecting in England to which our club members all adhere. We urge "Chainmail" to do the right thing and report these finds to the authorities so that a proper public record can be made of them and all this information is not lost.
