Banned Answer on Yahoo Answers: Help Wanted

Post by Tony Bennett on 26.07.10 21:01

Posted without further comment, except to say that if you would like to help by reporting 'muratfan's abuse, that would be nice, I give the links below. I reported the abuse of Yahoo's T&C by these three questions from 'muratfan' in rapid succession yesterday. In case some people ask why I bother responding to them at all, this is the answer: muratfan's hostile questions came up immediately, as soon as they were posted, on Google web alerts for either 'Madeleine McCann' or 'Madeleine Foundation'. Thousands of people may therefore view the links. Unfortunately many people may believe what they read, not knowing muratfan's past history:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Muratfan's original question and commentary which is still being ALLOWED

Will Tony Bennett of the Madeleine Foundation Ever stop harrassing the McCanns?

He claims they killed their daughter despite a lot of dodgy evidence that was based on a libellous book by a disgraced ex Police Officer called Amaral. Amaral was convicted of lying, and complicent in beating up suspects he had in custody.

My response yesterday which has now been BANNED

I am Tony Bennett, Secretary of The Madeleine Foundation. Contrary to the deliberate lies of 'MURATFAN', whoever he is, I have NEVER said that the McCanns killed Madeleine McCann. The information that 'MURATFAN' gives about Mr Amaral, the senior detective who investigated the case for the first four months, is also partially untrue.

The salient facts are:
1. The detectives accused with Mr Amaral of beating up Leonor Cipriano were all found NOT GUILTY.
2. Leonor Cipriano is a serial liar now serving a 16-year jail term, along with her brother Joao, for killing her own 8-year-old daughter, Joana, whom she at first reported as having been abducted
3. Mr Amaral was merely found guilty of 'filing a false report' in a trial many people said was politically motivated. He has appealed and under Portuguese law the sentence does not take effect until his appeal is heard (it has been delayed so far by 14 months)
4. Mr Amaral's book 'The Truth About A Lie' sold half-a-million copies in nine European countries before the McCanns succeeded in banning it by means of a temporary injunction last September
5. The McCanns claim that Mr Amaral's book is 'libellous'. However, the courts have not yet ruled on the McCanns' libel claim. They are asking for over £1 million damages. The final hearing in the libel trial is yet to take place and has already been delayed for over a year.

'Murtafan's reply, using the alias John Smith, which Yahoo Answers is still ALLOWING

No. He has photos of their home and of their family. He likes to visit their place of work to intimidate them. He brags about the stress he has caused them.

There is zero evidence to support the claim that Cipriano is a serial liar. She is an uneducated peasant woman. The court accepted as TRUE the fact that she was beaten while in custody. The detectives were found not guilty because a bag was placed over her head and she was not able to identify the men who hit her. The court found Amaral guilty of falsifying a report to cover up what his men did.

The girl's body has never been found. One of the judges on the jury demanded that his verdict be recorded as not guilty because he was stunned at the lack of evidence. There is no proof that the girl is even dead - just a small bit of blood found on a bannister. Amaral claimed the motive was that the girl walked in on her mother sleeping with her uncle, yet this is one of the MANY things marked as "not proven" in the court record. So there is no motive. Without the confession, there is nothing.

Amaral accused the McCanns of the SAME things he accused Cipriano of - deviant sexual behavior leading to the girl's death, then freezing her body and making it disappear (he never quite worked out how in the McCann case).

Amnesty International marks the Cipriano case as one of injustice.

I dont imagine he will be on there for much longer, his comments clearly appear to be libellious and it is obviously a personal vendetta and harrassment. imo

4th time

Post by Tony Bennett on 26.07.10 22:23

He's at it again on Yahoo Answers tonight - his fourth successful posting of a question - and each time it's Googled immediately to thousands:

++++++++++++

Did Tony Bennett (Madeleine Foundation) Not Pass On Information About A Missing Girl?

Is it true that Bennett received information regarding a missing girl called Madeleine McCann. Bennett apparently refused to pass it onto the proper authorities saying it was not worth it,
Since when did he become the investigating officer

And another

Is it true Tony Bennett from the Madeleine Foundation called the Foundation that so to confuse people?
The Madeline Foundation is a group set up by Tony Bennett from Harlow, to attack, harrass and generally abuse the parents of a missing girl.
Is it easy for people wanting to help find the missing girl

One newspaper reported that he has received donations from people in error, thinking they were donating to the REAL Madeleine site.
Massive diatribe was rattled off to the editor(the same as always). Editor fell asleep after reading the 1st of 60 paragraphs.

Say what?

Right from the word 'go' we always had a big disclaimer on our home page syaing that we had 'nothing whatsoever' to do with the McCanns' fund-raising activities to 'find Madeleine'. There's a similar disclaimer on our current site.

Ah! Well just for the record I did say that I did on one occasion receive very relevant information from a source; I didn't pass it on because, shall we say, the information had not yet crystallised into a usable form. There were also concerns about the source.

Are you sure you're banned?
Far as I know, once you have answered a question once, you cannot post a second answere. Maybe you should check again.

Maybe the headline to the OP was stretching it, but in the OP I made it clear that it was just one answer that was banned.

Possible that it was a mixed up. TB could ask Yahoo to show the post they thought was 'ranting and raving'

Another victory for muratfan

Post by Tony Bennett on 28.07.10 7:54

'muratfan' a.k.a. Ian West a.k.a. Bob Bobbitt a.k.a. John Smith a.k.a. Norah Batty etc. etc. [all names he's used on Yahoo Answers during the last few days] has gained another victory, as this answer of mine has also been deleted:


muratfan question:


Question: Did Tony Bennett (Madeleine Foundation) Not Pass On Information About A Missing Girl?

TB's deleted Answer:

Deleted Answer: Here is the fourth malicious and libellous question about me posted by muratfan alias John Smith alias Ian West during the past 36 hours. I have reported abuse of T&C in respect of them all, plus 'John Smith's answer on one of his questions yesterday (that is, him answering himself). I do hope Yahoo Answers actually reads the e-mails of those who report abuse? It's about time this evil man was stopped by Yahoo Answers from abusing this otherwise most valuable internet resource.

According to muratfan he wrote this on his blog:

MAYBE IT WAS BECAUSE I E-MAILED YAHOO THE CARTER RUCK LETTER WHICH SHOWED THAT BENNETT WAS COMMITTING LIBEL AGAIN AND AS CARTER RUCK SAID THEY WOULD PURSUE THOSE THAT HOSTED LIBEL MATERIAL.
