J.F. Beck has an interesting update on barrister, blogger, and blustering bandwidth bandit Walter Jeremy Sear.

    1. Capture the cute photograph… or save kitten from plummeting to the ground? Sadly, I picked the latter

      What an asshole!

      The fucking cat was up a tree stalking native birds.

      Plummet away, I say

    1. Pete sez:

      If copyright was enforced we bloggers and most of the internet industry would be “stuffed”.

      and suitably “mounted”, one presumes…or perhaps just holding hands.

      (please, Ma’am, not another Wally-Go-Round”)

    1. While I am tiring of Sear and his nonsense he made a comment on Beck’s site which deserves reflection:

      Sear said:

      And finally, of course, the whole context of this is my objecting to my material being used by Iain Hall in his relentless stalking campaign against me. I don’t have a problem with you or any reasonable person using my images where appropriate – I DO have a problem with some creep using them maliciously.

      If you had someone like Hall following you around, you’d get fed up with him taking your material after a while, too.

      Relentless stalking campaign? Following him around? Very serious allegations indeed.

      I will make a prediction: Sear has never seen Hall in the flesh.

    1. The pimple face lefty twit will go off and cry on Loewy’s shoulder. As for the mutt, Tim should have done a photoshop rescue and placed it on a hot tin roof near Ayer’s rock. That would have solved the legal problem.
      Or done what was done to “Les Miserables” wait 100 years and produce a royalty free musical depriving Hugo’s great grand children of some dollars.

    1. Sear: ‘(Note that Blogger didn’t actually call hotlinkers “thieves” – it simply said that Sometimes this is referred to as “stealing bandwidth’

      Oh come now, how is one who steals not then a thief?

    1. Sear is not a thief. I prefer to think of him as a victim of circumstance just doing what he has to do – something along the lines of the jolly swagman from Waltzing Matilda.

    1. What are the rules on taking images from the Internet exactly? I found one on Google Images that I used for a joke email; I tracked it back to its original site, but it had been removed from there. I would have liked to ask the creator’s permission.

    1. With assertions like that made in public, could not Hall have grounds for an action against Jeremy?

      Posted by richard mcenroe on 2006 03 28 at 12:49 AM • permalink


    1. He is clearly not talking about physical stalking but being stalked and followed around the net – which certainly appears a pretty accurate description from what I can gather.  And it has certainly been relentless.  However, if a deregatory comment like that was sufficient basis for action I think most posters to this forum would be in extreme danger!

    1. You think Jeremy has sufficient assets to meet a substantial judgement?

      Posted by lingus4 on 2006 03 28 at 01:14 AM • permalink


    1. If following someone around on the net is stalking then stealing bandwidth is theft. I’m happy with that.

    1. It’s still an ordinary cat, unremarkable in any way.
