Subject: Fwd: Re: your defamatory posting

I am trained in law and in this respect I can assure you that you are
completely wrong. There are a number of authorities on this matter. If you
are not persuaded, I suggest that you ask your own lawyer.

:The only way they would be defamatory is they were a) true and b) a source
:of embarassment. Your mail to us suggests that they are at least true.

As above. I clearly stated in my earlier e-mail that they were false.

If you carry out your infantile threats to republish the statements
complained of I will without further notice issue legal proceedings against
your company. Mine are not idle threats - I have been successful in
defamation proceedings several times in the past, including against US
companies. In any event, I strongly suggest that you obtain legal advice
before doing anything for which you will ultimately be held liable.
