I just wanted to drop you a line regarding some of the comments which have appeared on the Eastcliff Richard blog this week.
Although I appreciate that they have not been made by yourself I'm sure you are more than aware that as the publisher of the blog you bear ultimate responsibility for them.
I note with some interest that you have failed to remove several of the more offensive posts relating to myself.
I have no problem with people who may dislike me for whatever reason, did not like my People article, or just generally want to have a moan.
But some have clearly crossed the acceptable line of fair comment and honestly held opinion and veered into libel territory.
For the record I can assure you that I am not - and never have been a Nazi, and take any suggestions otherwise extemely seriously.
Hence the use of the phrase "Nazi Nick" certainly could be held to be libellous - and as the blog's publisher I'm sure you are aware that had the case been taken to court the onus would have been on yourself to prove I am in fact a member of the Nazis - or risk a payout of substantial damages.
I like your blog and always take the trouble to have a look at what's going on - and am happy to accept any robust criticism which you or your readers may choose to place in my direction.
What I cannot accept, however, are clearly libellous statements such as the ones which continue to be displayed.
If you would like to discuss this matter further please don't hesitate to get in touch.
If these kind of libellous comments continue to appear I will left with no alternative but to instruct my solicitors.
Actually at no point did the phrase 'Nazi Nick' appear in any of the comments appended to my item Dorman of the People but to save him the trouble of instructing his solicitors, all comments that may have been construed as offensive to Mr Dorman have been removed, and I would like to offer him a full apology for any distress that may have been caused.
