Sye Ten Bruggencate Threatens Me With Libel Action!!

Following a suggestion that Sye, Jim, and I have a conversation on Skype regarding that video, this has been the IM encounter I’ve had….

[24/11/2011 18:16:00] Sye Ten Bruggencate: who’s on?
[24/11/2011 18:16:30] Alex Botten: No one yet, but will likely be myself and Jim
[24/11/2011 18:16:43] Sye Ten Bruggencate: What’s the topic?
[24/11/2011 18:17:22] Alex Botten: I figured videos would be a good starting point 🙂
[24/11/2011 18:19:19] Sye Ten Bruggencate: I do not plan on encouraging you in your dsihonesty.
[24/11/2011 18:19:45] Alex Botten: Then correct me Sye – tell me who made your video and I’ll gladly change the details! It’s really THAT simple!
[24/11/2011 18:20:08] Sye Ten Bruggencate: I did correct you.  It wasn’t me.  That’s all the correction you need.
[24/11/2011 18:21:17] Alex Botten: Nope, for the correction to be acted upon I have to know who to correct it to! Don’t you see how this works? So far I’m not even convinced it WASN’T you, but I can’t blame you for your desire to distance yourself from it!
[24/11/2011 18:21:28] Alex Botten: Jim is logging in in five minutes
[24/11/2011 18:21:37] Sye Ten Bruggencate: Well, leave it up at your peril.
[24/11/2011 18:21:46] Alex Botten: Are you THREATENING me?
[24/11/2011 18:21:51] Alex Botten: Really???

[24/11/2011 18:21:56] Sye Ten Bruggencate: It is libelous.
[24/11/2011 18:22:13] Alex Botten: And insinuating I use illegal drugs isn’t?
[24/11/2011 18:22:30] Sye Ten Bruggencate: My question was not, that’s right.
[24/11/2011 18:23:01] Alex Botten: Oh dear! That’s not very Christian of you!
[24/11/2011 18:23:17] Sye Ten Bruggencate: what?  My proper understanding of libel?
[24/11/2011 18:23:26] Alex Botten: Simple solution to my supposed ‘libel’, tell me who made the video, so I can correct the attribution!
[24/11/2011 18:24:00] Sye Ten Bruggencate: so if a reporter writes a libelous article, he can leave it up until the person he libels gives the proper info?  Are you on drugs?
[24/11/2011 18:24:11] Alex Botten: I’m asking you to correct me
[24/11/2011 18:24:26] Sye Ten Bruggencate: and I’m telling you that I have.
[24/11/2011 18:24:27] Alex Botten: Tell me who made the video, as the evidence currently points to you
[24/11/2011 18:24:50] Sye Ten Bruggencate: I could not give a rip where it points.  You have been corrected, and refuse to change the info.
[24/11/2011 18:24:54] Sye Ten Bruggencate: that’s up to you.
[24/11/2011 18:25:09] Sye Ten Bruggencate: I don’t even have a blip account.
[24/11/2011 18:27:32] Alex Botten: You posted it on your blog, after you’d claimed you were making it. All the available evidence points to you. As I say, I’m happy to correct if you tell me who DID make it!
[24/11/2011 18:27:52] Sye Ten Bruggencate: As I said, leave it up at your peril.
[24/11/2011 18:27:55] Sye Ten Bruggencate: Cheers.
[24/11/2011 18:29:02] Alex Botten: Sye, that’s genuinely hilarious!

I’m still sitting here on Skype, waiting for Sye to man up. Maybe he’ll be up for a conversation when I get back from collecting Kat from the station? Stay tuned!!

  1. Oh, this is wonderful.I have come across Sye before, on Facebook would you believe, using his real name. And displaying his ignorance and intolerance for all to see.How lovely to know he hasn't changed a bit and it's been several years. A round of applause for Sye please all. Along with suitable levels of laughter and amusement.Good for you Sye, stick to one psychosis at a time hey?

  2. Just to add to this, I doubt this is the giy's name at all as if you look it up it is "Ten Bruggencate is a lunar impact crater that lies on the far side of the Moon from the Earth"So he is named after a hole in the ground. Most apt.Come on out and play Sye!

  3. What was the name he used before?

Write what you like, but don't cry if you act like a dick and get banned for it
