A couple of days ago I fished a South Coast Today story on the Shelburne Whiskey Distillery from the google cache and published an excerpt of it as the Slabbed Nation speculated why it was pulled. Last night in comments to that post Rat Bastard did some speculating as to the reason the story was pulled and it looks as if he was right as we visit today with the SouthCoast Today story “Trout Point Complaints” as Mr Gillespie has gone on the record with the back story on why his original report that we highlighted was pulled:
Below is a letter received April 3 regarding a story previously posted on SCT, but withdrawn as a courtesy to the management of Trout Point Lodge. As promised in the past, we have agreed to post complaints they have about SCT coverage of issues surrounding Trout Point Lodge. As we do not track Google cache (or any other archive service) we have no knowlege of what archives exist from any postings, current or removed.
Of course Rat Bastard appears to be spot on with his observation that the story was pulled “and only in Cache because of some of the same tactics that the people at the “point” have used in the past and are currently using with….. some unmentioned blog.”
This is a given and our readers may remember that when Leary and Perret identified former Trout Point Lodge Manager Joyce Case Harlow as having spoken with me, they passed several threats against her to the point where she called me on the phone very upset. THeir harassment of Ms Harlow finally stopped when I publicly advised her to call the FBI. I mention this because Leary and Perret’s letter to Gillespie seems to indicate they have done likewise to the source for his original story, an unnamed official with the Town of Shelburne Nova Scotia as I again quote from today’s SouthCoast Today story: Continue reading ““The face of the enemy frightens me only when I see how much it resembles me”. Leary and Perret send a nasty gram to Timothy Gillespie at South Coast Today”
