Some flowers, and the mocking note, came from Ottawa’s Mark Bourrie, a writer who the National Post’s Jonathan Kay has described, inter alia, as “shrill,” “malicious,” “misguided,” and who has “ravings.”
Not long ago, Mark commented – under a fake name – that I was a “cowardly cocksucker,” “gutless,” and a few other bon mots. He has a web site, here, wherein he posts all kinds of Warren-related stuff; read it to your heart’s content. And, over the years, he’s been identified by Wikipedia editor types as someone who vandalizes the “Warren Kinsella” page they’ve got over there. Eventually, it got so bad, they “locked” the page.
He has shown up on this web site as the commenter “Woodburning Tool” [sic] – around the same time he came up with the “cowardly cocksucker” designation – Bourrie said he had “referred” the matter to his “lawyer.”
Why’s he so obsessed with me? Perhaps it’s because I sued him for libel a few years back, won an apology and a retraction, and the payment of settlement. Perhaps it’s because he’s recently been called “naive” in the way he approaches things. Perhaps it’s because I am rich, powerful and rakishly handsome, and he is, well.
Anyway, just kidding, Mark. Thanks for the flowers.
