Bonus: the full Cease & Desist letters
These are Chris Patterson Barrister's full Cease & Desist letters sent on behalf of Dr Dan & David D'Amato
Sorry about all the D’s in the subhead above.
Further to the newsletter I just sent out, as a subscriber I always like you to have more material. So here are the Cease and Desist letters sent to me from Chris Patterson Barrister, on behalf of Dr Dan and David D’Amato, in their entirety. The only thing I’ve censored is contact information. Everything else is there.
This is for the sake of full transparency, and so you have the full story. I want you to see how this legal stuff works and the ways in which people try and shut journalists up.
I said it in the last newsletter explaining this situation, but I’ll say it again: thanks for being here and choosing to be a paying member. Your money could go a million places, and you choose to contribute to Webworm.
You allow this thing to exist.
You allow me the time to investigate and write, to pay guest contributors like Joshua Drummond who wrote the Evangelical Christianity piece this week, to hire illustrators, and to do lots of other things like consult with lawyers. I literally could not do this thing without you.
I want to keep growing Webworm and what it can be — so tell your friends about it. Tell uncle Phil and auntie Natalie. Forward this email on to someone who enjoyed Tickled. If you have an incredibly rich uncle or know Beyonce or Tom Cruise personally, tell them to sign up for “God Mode” where they can contribute $666!
This newsletter is a little over a year old, it’s just a toddler, and it excites me to think about what it can become.
Thanks for being here and going on these strange rides with me. Now — in the words of White Lotus’ Armond… let’s go hard.
Note: the Cease & Desist letters below are all jpeg images, as I wanted you to see the originals. If you are visually impaired or need it in plain text for any reason, let me know in the comments below — or email me at email@example.com — and I’ll sort you out.
