The latest from Mark Bourrie: divorce pleadings? Seriously?

He is apparently interested in publishing the pleadings from my divorce, as you can see in the screenshot taken from his “Warren Kinsella Sux” website. His post:

    Couldn’t help myself to look on the site (it has a catchy URL) and the post has already been taken down.

    Jeeze man, this guy does appear to be pathological to me. Publishing pleadings from your divorce?! Why?

    I worry he may become violent. Hopefully the courts will see what maybe his OCD.

    My prediction is, he will be the one in jail.

    we just had a nut…in my community who was stalking some of us, harassing us online, and basically doing insane things. Turns out yes…he is insane and he escalated to the pt of beating up his bf, stealing dogs and finally getting taken down on the ferry…very very publically. This guy…his behaviour got worse over ayear…the crack problem didnt help. But in all seriousness….a person willing to harass you for ten years…(even if he feels justified…thru his insane thoughts)…he is a guy on the edge. I think you should be able have him carted away criminal harassment…sending crap toyour home, bringing up lies about your family life…creating mayhem, this goes well beyond professional jealousy or competition. This guy needs serious help> of course you have dealt with him in the courts before and it didnt seem to help.
    I am sure you know all this…being that your are a lawyer…but is there anyway you could take a different tack…and try to reach out to his wife…or friends and suggest he get himself into a mental health program.
    im sure the last thing you feel is compassion for this asshat…but it might be what stops the behaviours.
