Notice of liability, Giwer Matt

Mailed to [email protected], Sunday, July 20, 1996:

Dear Sirs,

Please be advised that a Netcom user has made false statements
concerning me, and that I will consider Netcom liable for any republication
of these false and defamatory statements. The Netcom user who
has made these false statements is [email protected], Matt Giwer.

I have instructed legal counsel to advise Netcom of this by United
States registered mail on Monday morning, July 21, 1996.

I urge Netcom to take this advisory seriously, and assure Netcom that I
will not hesitate to follow through in court, should Netcom permit these
patently false statements to continue.

Copies of this message have been sent to legal counsel, and constitute
my specific instruction to proceed with the service of Netcom’s legal
notice of liability, and of my further instruction that he proceed
against Netcom without further instruction, should this warning be disregarded, and the false statements permitted to continue.

Sincerely yours,
Kenneth McVay, O.B.C.
Director, The Nizkor Project

Nizkor (Canada) – An Electronic Holocaust Educational Network

Thank you for writing to Netcom’s abuse department with your report or
concern. You are receiving this automatically generated message to
acknowledge that your mail has been received. We appreciate and
make every effort to follow-up on all reports of abusive activity.

If you send in multiple reports, you will only receive this message once
every five days.

Important Information:

Due to the oftentimes overwhelming number of complaints that we receive
regarding abuse, you may not receive a reply. All reports are read and
acted upon as necessary.

In order to aid us in investigating your report, please include the full
headers of all e-mail or Usenet messages relevant to your report. Often,
forwarding a message through a newsreader strips the article of headers
and makes it difficult for us to identify the original post.

following information:

* The forum the inappropriate message(s) are in (newsgroup,email,IRC)
* The name of the newsgroup the inappropriate messages are in
* The username of the sender
* A copy of the message with full headers

If you are reporting a copyright or trademark violation, e-mail forgery, or
system security issue, please send your report to [email protected].
