Vampire Hunter Drama Part 3
http://www.livejournal.com/users/alexlucard/840004.html#cutid1 is part two, and there's a link in there to part one.

Anyway, the arch rival of Sean Manchester, the guy who has been annoying me since I was a teenager and the subject of the last two posts on the subject has emailed me as of last night. This guy has a criminal record a mile long, from digging up corpses and violating them on down.

But at least he's more eloquent in his madness than Machester. here's David Farrant's email to me.




Dear Alex Lucard
I was most intrigued by all your comments here about the so-called Highgate Vampire; not least about myself being a 'vampire hunter'! It would appear that you arrive at most of your conclusions about the Highgate Case and myself from sensational accounts you have gleaned from the internet the problem is however that almost invariably, most of this inaccurate sensationalism as been posted up by Mr Sean Manchester himself (Please note he is NOT a genuing bishop) and if you check back on these accounts you will see that I have only been forced to correct unfounded public allegations made by Mr Manchester himself - albeit frequently hiding behind his usual aliases.

It is not my intention to argue against all the points you have recently made on the insidepulse website, as I appreciate you, like anybody else are entitled to personal opinions (however wrong or misguided these have proved to be in your particular case).

I will just say one thing however, to set the record straight for you - ... I am NOT a 'vampire hunter', in reality I am just a psychic investigator and I do not even accept the existence of 'blood sucking vampires'. Mr Manchester apparently does (as he has publically stated in his self-published book The Highgate Vampire), but that is really his problem! In passing, I can conclude by saying that my non-acceptance of Mr Manchester's ridiculous public claims he makes about 'vampires', has been the main reason for his campaign of hatred against members of The British Psychic and Occult Society and myself.

Yours Sincerely
David Farrant
President BPOS.

NB: In the event that you might be interested my main website can be found at http://www.dfarrant.co.uk also could I refer you to Occult Forums International Vampire Thread, Off Topic Occult. The link is http://www.occultforums.com from which Mr Manchester has just been publically banned (within the last 3 or 4 days or so.


SHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUP! Sigh. My email to him

Ummm...Dave? That column you read of mine was me printing the whack job hilarious emails Manchester sent me. Re-read the column. Those are his words, not mine with me making fun of him at the end.

It was in reference to the column I wrote back in Jan '05 (http://www.insidepulse.com/article.php?contentid=31102) where I recanted the entire Highgate vampire saga.

I know Manchester very well. And by that I mean, I know him by reputation very well, as he's been the butt of American folklorists and parapsychologists for as long as I can remember. Norrine Dresser, Paul barber, Carol Page. All of us snicker quite profusely at the whole "Highgate Vampire" incident.

I'll tell you what I told Manchester: Stop acting like children. Both of you. This happened 30 years ago. My god, both of you are old enough to be at retirement age soon and you're carrying on like schoolchildren about an event maybe 5% of the world remembers and only a fraction thereof even cares that it occured.

All your sniping between the two of you does makes you both look foolish and foppish. Like attention whores deserpately clinging to some sort of public limelight when one of you just needs to start completely ignoring the other. I don't care if he starts it, or is just really good at getting your goat, because the end result is STILL the two of you bickering of the world wide web. Please stop.

-Lucard

Actually it is illegal to publish personal correspondence without the person or persons consent who wrote it. In the UK it is called Slander and Libel. Now if there is anyone who needs to be 'pissed off' to use your quotes it is yourself.

If there is anyone who is insane it is yourself. You brought this matter to attention on your blog because you knew precisely what would happen. It is you who seems to be in the need of attention and not anyone else on this blog. Likewise Alex Lucard, you call yourself a historian and folklorist but you have brought this blog and your reputation to the level of the gutter.

Let me help you with simple definitions even a high school lad would know.

The Legal defintion of Slander is: Oral communication of false statements injurious to a person's reputation.

There's no oral communication going on. Nor is there any false statements made. It's a simple reproduction. Good job on your first failure.

The Legal Defintion of Libel is A false publication, as in writing, print, signs, or pictures, that damages a person's reputation

Nothing false published. Again, it's all a straight cut and paste.

Failure #2 by you.

As well, in all my writings it's made clear any and all things sent to me become my legal property and can be reprinted at my behest for whatever reason I choose. Historians and Foklorists reprint documents ALL THE TIME. It's part of the trade.

As much as I enjoy the comedy of you babbling and constantly showing you have no idea what you're talking about, it's been a year+ of both of your groups yelling at each other with me just laughing and laughing at the combined stupidity. You've become nothing more than a source of comedy for the tens of thousands of people that read my blog daily every time I link to the fact you guys continually post to something a year old, furthering proving my point that you're either computer illiterate or just plain nuts.

Again I repeat I am not Sean Manchester, I cannot abide the man. And yet you frequently refer myself to him. That is libel in itself. What you get sent through email is not your property, it is still the property of the person who wrote it. You should still ask the person's permission before you publish such nonesense.

Dear god, you continue to be one of the biggest nuts on the planet, and one with no understanding of any kind of how any sort of legal system works, nationally, or internationally.

All you keep doing is making people laugh their ass off at you by ranting and raving without the slightest inkling of how any sort of litigation or law works.

I just gave you a textbook definition cut and paste from a law book and you tried arguing it wasn't correct. Good job on once again proving yourself to be a total ignorant fool.

Truth is the best defense for defamation.

Why should we stop 'bickering' when you have published lies and untruths about us. We are only defending our characher which you have publically published defamation about us.

Find a lie or untruth published and I'll gladly retract it.

But you can't.

"While it is perfectly acceptable for the public to show an interest in what people have written (in this case about vampires), it is not acceptable for anyone to harass and violate the privacy of any individual whether they are perceived to be "quasi-celebrities" or "nuts" or whatever else.

Publishing material on the internet can fall foul of the laws of libel, incitement of hatred, religious intolerance, malicious falsehood and harassment; especially if you reside in England, as we happen to know you do, Alex.

So, please don't be quite so smug when you give out advice to those you try to publicly humiliate and ridicule. It could turn around on you and land you in the law courts."

For once entirely agree with what is being said here.

And here I used to think that Crowley and McVey were self-important pricks. Well, they still were, but these guys put them to shame easily.
