The dishonesty of sending private emails to third parties libeling somebody.

This page is written in response to the lies that +Phil Daintree has written about me, and spread on the internet. Despite years of searching he has been unable to find anything I have written that is untrue, and he has had to resort to vague generalities, faked emails, and badly fabricated screenshots (you can see the joins if you zoom in using any bit mapped image editor). +Phil Daintree is welcome to make any comments to these pages, as he has done in the past. If I agree with what he says I will amend my writings, if I do not agree I have allowed his comments to stand next to mine so that people can make their own judgements. I have every confidence in the intelligence of readers to make a sensible judgement based on the facts. +Phil Daintree will not allow me the right of reply to any of the lies he has told about me. It seems to me significant that he realises that if people see both sides of the argument they will see through his lies.

It seems that Phil Daintree's latest ploy is to send people private emails about me, thus hoping that I will be unable to give that person my version of the events. Several people have sent me copies of these emails so I have been able to point out the facts to them, however this doesn't get away from the basic dishonesty of these actions.

It's important to note that Phil does not dispute any of the facts about him that I have put in this blog, what he is against is that I should be able to write it at all, and that he is unable to block it.

One of the things Phil repeatedly says about me is that I am unable to admit when I am wrong. So just for fun I spent 5 minutes searching the nabble archives. There are dozens of examples of my apologising for being wrong of which the following is a small sample, but the reader can find there own by searching here.

When Phil says I cannot admit to being wrong, what he actually means is that I wont say he is right when he is clearly wrong. In an email to several major contributors of webERP he told us that once he has expressed his opinion on a matter then the subject should be closed and no more discussion will be allowed. This is unacceptable in an open source project, whatever messianic delusions the administrator may have
