    i dunno...
    he makes a good case for himself in one sense; i believe she has lied about past events.
    that being said, he probably should have just let it go. maybe left it at a single scathing blog highly optimised for google.

    I'm already skeptical about a blog covering a four-week relationship that begins with "account of the time we went out, as per her witness statement." Although, in all fairness, in an odd twist on internet drama, it is an actual witness statement.

    ETA: He does not, in my opinion, make a good enough case for not letting it go. Perhaps we do not have "the rest of the story" since he eventually attempted suicide.

    ETA 2:
    Oh fer...

    Separate sections for separate slights. Punched in the face. Assault, battery, death threats. Defamation on Facebook. Illness. Arrest. Free speech. Death not in vain. Donation requests for Crisis Host. Culprits, corruption and sociopaths. The woman he's dating. The husband of his best friend. His HR department at work. What a muddle.

    LeeHere Absent sighs.

    I hope this man gets some decent assistance and soon.

    Oh good lord.

    "During that week off I posted a parody of my situation on the domain I owned rebeccapattinson.com. I didn’t mention her, or make her identifiable from any other Rebecca Pattinson (and if you google the name, there are many). There was nothing that identified her at all."

    "Daze. I couldn’t understand what was happening. All I had done was try to reason with someone so that I could meet her parents at childrens’ birthday parties without having to refer to her as a liar. Because she wouldn’t respond to reason, I eventually broke and posted what she had done on the internet, in the hope that she would reason with me (maybe even apologise and stop lying to my friends and her family) to take it down."

    "Prison was rubbish."

    Get...this...man...help.

    I'm gonna keep my figurative fingers crossed for him.
