This is just way too funny! Rather than act like an honourable man, and give a simple apology, Jason Bowman has made the world’s most pitiful attempt – ever – to take down my blog! If this guy were a Mason, he’d be a 10,000th degree Jester! But, he’s not, he’s a Muppet…
The good news here is for the Queen, the government, the Pope, and the King of Farouk. Because, if Bowman’s legal skills (supposedly learned at Harvard) are this bad, they have very little to fear from the Association of Citizen Prosecutors. Bowman couldn’t try a monkey out of a wet paper bag!
Notice how Jason says that I’ve used ‘unauthorized reproductions of my likeness’. What a joke- those pictures were taken at his press conference! Sorry, Jason, but didn’t your mom (or Harvard) teach you that if you call a press conference you are authorizing people to take your picture?
He also, for some strange reason, wrote to Paypal and to the company that made the WordPress template I’m using for the blog. What do they have to do with this? Are you that stupid Otto?
Jason, I’ll make it simple for you. Prove to me that what I’m saying is wrong, and I’ll take it down with a public apology. Or, you can take me to court for this- after all, if you can take the Pope and the Queen of Sheeba to court, you can certainly do the same to me!

Dear Mr. Bowman, you may be aware, as a a former Harvard Law student as you claim, that images taken in a public place are not afforded the same rights under privacy as those in private settings. you may recall that we were asked to relocate to press conference to outside the private gates of Osgoode hall . that new location was the property of City hall, hence a public space. There is no expectation of privacy when in a public space, therefore, anyone can images at any time without permission. The ONLY exception to this if the images taken are to be used for publication FOR PROFIT , such as newspapers of magazines…. hut since you went to Harvard, you already know this , right ?
What is an untrue fact?
these two, bowman and annett are idiots… I hope occupy chastizes annett for “just using them”.
Again he went to Harvard. LOL< LOL< LOL< LOL< sure he did. Grin.
Perhaps he went to the Harvard Academy of Dance? lol
Dear Mr. Bowman,
I have reviewed your letter, and I don’t see any evidence for your deeming. Deeming, that is another funny word. What is a deem, do you mean a doom? “O.E. deman “to judge, condemn, think, compute,” from root of dom.” So, in your own judgment, you have been libeled? Perhaps they did not teach you this at Harvard, Mr. Bowman, but, as I am sure you learned at Harvard, “in propria causa nemo iudex” — loosely, “in one’s own cause no one is judge.”
I guess this is a Harvard trick—you pass along your doom, and hope that the sucker who receives it complies with it, thus generating the appearance of its being an equitable doom approved by two people. I do not think your doom is equitable. I have reviewed the primary source materials on this site, and, while some of the content strays into the realm of subjective view, it is certainly not out of line to have such views of someone to makes himself a public figure, as by holding press conferences.
Also, “a number of untrue slurs” is non-specific. You cannot sue for “a number of dollars.” You must sue for this or that number of dollars—one hundred, five hundred, two hundred, or whatever it is. So what is the number? If it is “a number”, you must know what the number is, unless you have not quantified how many of the statements are untrue—in which case, I wonder how you could know it is a number greater than one. Zero is also a number, so perhaps you are correct—there are a number of untrue slurs here. That is, zero untrue slurs.
Had you thought first, you would have provided a specific number of slurs, and you would have outlined them. But this brings me to an even greater problem with your letter—although not binding everywhere, I think BC’s Libel and Slander act is persuasive: “It is not necessary in an action for libel to set out in the pleading or process obscene passages, but it is sufficient to deposit in the proper registry the book, newspaper or other document containing the alleged libel, together with particulars showing precisely by reference to pages, columns and lines where the alleged libel is to be found.”
Therefore, we see that for you to commence the sort of action you would like to commence, at least in British Columbia, you would have to deposit the offensive material in the registry—and you would have to make specific reference to the material—“pages, columns, lines.” Just tossing the article into the old Registry and saying “it’s offensive,” not good enough. Harvard must be quite the trip—what did you learn there, anyway? Can you do the Harvard accent? Say rawther for me, come on, do it! Anyway.
I like these articles so much that I might just mirror them.
For one who really has been ‘criminally slandered’ by Kevin Annett, I thank you for the above legal formula, Mr. Bowman. Hopefully you will apply it where it should be directed yourself, soon enough – for you will surely be fryed by Mr. Annett yourself. Mark my words.
I gotta say, this guy is perfect for a caricature for an idiot. You couldn’t have picked a more facially funny (if not factually inaccurate) kinda guy. And when he said that bit about the “reach around”, OMG that was just TOO much!
Indeed- I need to thank the creator for the gift I’ve been given with Bowman. He’s such a character!
