Reading between the lines with Paul being a master of deceit, I believe it goes back to the fact I had announced on the 12th September 2011 a National Barford day. This is where anyone who had images or work hosted on the Barford blog which had been uploaded without the permission of the owner, to contact Google on a said day and claim copyright infringement. The day chosen was the 18th September.
Now wait for this by remarkable coincidence this was the day the Barford blog disappeared for several weeks.
He is now making out he received threats at the time, but I believe he knew what was about to happen, as he had seen it published on this blog, so he downed his blog to protect it.
He knew if Google received multiple complaints on the same day they would have to act and close his blog down, and in a more severe case delete his Google account completely.
I would like to suggest we have another go because I believe this is his Achilles heel, if everyone on the 10th March 2013 files a complaint to Google about copyright infringements, for any work he is hosting which belongs to you. Having so many hits on the same day will close him down.
Check his blog for any past infringements a make a note where it can be found, then send your complaint to Google. Anything from stolen images to written word. He will try to claim 'fair use' for criticism but with so many complaint Google will have to act.
This can only happen if we all pull together, we have had over 6000 hits on this blog, so Paul has many fans.
Read his blog and act now, every little counts!
