Hi Paul,

Gary suggested that I engaged in character assassination in my twitter reply to a post that, as it turns out, he had written calling the author a twat. I'm just putting that out there to give whomever might be reading this some additional context. You know first hand that I don't agree with everything Hallie has said publicly and privately, but I do find it a bit rich that 'character assassination' has been leveled at me by someone who was calling a woman such names on a public message board.

Hi Jonathan,
I appreciated that, which is why I added that little disclaimer at the end. It was very unfortunate that Hallie was taking offence at Gary's comment, and you assumed she was offended by someone else. You and Gary were both defending Ripperology, Gary saying the last things we needed was another book of empty promises and you were saying that the someone else wasn't representative of the Ripperology community. An unintentional and embarrassing mix up, hopefully now resolved. But just in case other people started to take sides, I thought it worthwhile to remind the good people of this parish that the fault lay - if it lay anywhere - with Hallie, whose remarks about Ripperologists prompted Gary's comment and whose apparent attempt to characterise Ripperology by that comment prompted yours.

Thanks, Paul.
Yet another example of why we must be more careful about what we post on the internet and social media. Myself included, obviously.
The next time I will simply name the person I'm describing so there's no ambiguity.

JM,

Have you only just realised that the PT commentator is not the person you described as having been banned from here there and everywhere? Criticise his (my) vehement defence of Ripperology (we were attacked first if you remember) if you must, but once you learned that you were slagging off the wrong person, shouldn't you have informed HR's 10,000-odd Twitter mates that you'd got it wrong?

As it stands on Twitter I'm racist, sexist, homophobic etc and haven't read a single Ripper book. Not my 'suggestions', your words. Please put that right.

I'm hoping that when you interview HR you will grill her on why she felt it necessary to dismiss the decades of research that has been conducted into the victims (not just the 'marketable' C5 she is concentrating on) on here and JTR Forums.

Gary

Here you are, Gary.



All fixed. If you would like to add anything then Twitter is free to join.

In regards to interview questions posed to Hallie, I will be more than happy to submit to her questions you, or anyone else may have. I'll be making an announcement once its confirmed that the one-on-one is taking place. Early next year.
