William Gruber

[UseNet header trimmed]

""'s real name is William Gruber, although he changed his surname to Grosvenor, after being convicted of embezzlement and assault in his home town of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, in England. He moved to Canada, where he was again convicted of embezzlement. In the 1980s, Mr Gruber was a patient at the Riverside Psychiatric Hospital, where he was diagnosed as suffering from paranoid delusions.

He claims to have owned many businesses in Canada, and to have been resident there for over thirty years, but this is inconsistent with his other claims to have been a Malaysian Government Official during the seventies.

Most of Mr Gruber's posts these days are to the newsgroup "alt.activism.death-penalty", where among other things, he espouses the execution of gays, Jews, blacks, lawyers and judges.

Mr Gruber is a well known neo-Nazi, and is presently under investigation by the Edmonton Police, in the Canadian province of Alberta, as well as by the hate crimes division of Vancouver Police. The former can be reached via e-mail, at:

Alternatively, you may call Detectives Dave Johnson (403-421-3576), or George Sidor (403-421-3584) and relay your concerns concerning the actions of this anti-Semite.

His past rantings have also been well documented by the Nizkor Group, an Internet anti-hate group. Their dossier on him can be viewed at:

In addition, there exists an FAQ on Mr Gruber, a copy of which I have archived on my home page, at:

Click on the main photograph in the centre of the screen, and you will be given instructions on how to view and/or download the FAQ.

I apologise to the readers of the newsgroups to which Mr Gruber spammed his racist nonsense, but I felt that you all deserved to know the sickening past of this person. If, after viewing the dossier on the Nizkor site, and the FAQ on my site, you desire further information, feel free to access DejaNews (, and to search for his past posts. His various identites have included:

These are two ISPs from whom this piece of Nazi pigshit has already been removed. His present ISP, Canada Direct, seems content to allow the dissemination of such fascist garbage. If you wish to register your disapproval of this, feel free to e-mail Dave at:, or send faxes to(604) 602-1700.
