Wow that didn’t take long.
Within days of the formation of a new political party I have become the subject of online attacks. I guess that is not surprising really.
I don’t usually respond to online gossip but in this instance, I believe instinctively, I should. Simply because since we started the party, the online threats and bullying have come in hard and fast and this one is particularly close to home.
There is a specific online post that falsely claims that I ‘stole a Facebook page’. I will plainly state…this is not true!
I did assist to improve the page but claim no ownership of the page, its content or any claimed IP.
The simple fact is…there have been THREE name changes to the page and the person making the allegation has tried to look for the original page name. It appears they either can’t find it (due to name change) or are trying to create an issue that does not exist and are now claiming that I stole it or deleted it.
I was removed from the Facebook page on May 5 and restate that I have no ownership, control or otherwise involvement in this Facebook page whatsoever.
I have provided all explanation and evidence of these facts to that person and pointed out they are making a technical error in trying to locating the Facebook page under its original name. Anyone whom understands Facebook can clearly see that the name has changed and it’s still the same page.
See posted screenshots for your own independent assessment.
That person now has full ownership of that page and I am not involved with it whatsoever.
The reason I believed I had to address this specific issue is because I read comments from people who seem genuinely hurt and sad to think that I would do that.
I can assure you…I did not and certainly would not!
It’s very easy to cast negative dispersions on a person for whatever reason someone chooses. This should be the end of the matter because all of this is very clear. If it turns out not to be the end of the matter, then you should perhaps question the motives behind it.
All I can ask is that you do your own proper assessment and then formulate your own opinion.
For those of you who know me, you know the answer already.
Let us not be divisive and get on with the bigger task at hand of making a positive difference to government in this country.
