You may remember back in July when Jason Bowman wrote a love letter to WordPress about me. It was my first taste of what I’ll forever label as a ‘Legal Bowmanism’- meaning, a set of legalese style words bunched in together in a blathering attempt to sound like it was written by a lawyer. If ever Jason makes himself seem like a clown, it is when he writes one of these letters…
There are some patterns to Legal Bowmanisms. First and foremost, they are completely inept. Not inept like Homer Simpson trying to hammer a nail- but much, much worse. Bowman’s style of writing a legal document is right about at the level of a brain damaged monkey, high on a mix of crack and alcohol, with a defective typewriter. Even that’s giving him a lot of credit.
The next essential part of a Legal Bowmanism is that they tend to involve the use of a Latin phrase or two. We all saw the first example of this when he started (inaccurately) throwing around the phrase ‘ex-parte’. This wasn’t the first time he’s done that- he even named one of his companies (a wonderful opportunity to invest in West African gold mines) that he called ‘Victis Unlimited’. One has to wonder if he studied Latin at Harvard’s school of extension.
Another pattern I’ve noticed is how how he uses a confusing word structure to make his letters appear to be written by a lawyer. Here’s an example from his love letter to WordPress: “libellous statements of untrue fact”. Wow, that was quite a mouthful- don’t you think?
The last pattern, which he also used in the love letter, is a special Legal Bowmanism phrase he likes to use: “Govern yourself accordingly.” This is advice he should take himself- before he ends up in prison…
Well, it seems that Jason hasn’t stopped clowning around! Today he wrote a threatening letter to Tony Boutros- the host of Global F.A.C.T. radio. Bowman exposes his inner coward in this letter- it is a pitiful attempt to make sure people can’t read the truth about him on on this site, and on Heather Martin’s blog.
Have a read, it’s a real laugh riot! Oh silly, silly, Jason- life will be a lot less entertaining when you finally give up on your quixotic attempt to make people think you are a legal expert. I’ve never met a clown quite as funny as you are…

Subject: TONY – will you kindly add our website and cease and desist from promoting sites which contain illegal (criminal libel) content such as Renouf and Martin’s sites.This misstep is something I have already addressed with you, and notwithstanding giving your word that your show would not promote such illegal content, it now appears that you are doing just that. The FB thread constantly reposts your promotion of those sites, and there are now dozens of counts of your promotion of sites which I have already told you remain the subjects of investigation / proceedings.I don’t care what sites you promote, but promoting those 2 specific sites is, in our opinion, acting as a party to the crime of, inter alia, criminal libel. Kindly govern yourself accordingly.
