 From me, apparently.  Here's the email in question.  Michael has 
threatened to sue me if I post this.

But my email was much less spammy, as I have nothing to sell.

My address for serving is 25 Glossop Cr, Campbell.  Make sure you file 
against "Jeremy Buchanan Price", because the other two Jeremy Prices in 
town probably aren't interested.

I had a concern with job advertisements not being posted in full for the 
coummunity to review, especially when they refer to a website such as this:


I posted it for people to comment on here:


and comment they did.

Michael has claimed that these communications are private and that 
revealing them would be actionable, however the people he is dealing 
with have publically advertised the job here:


I also expressed my concern to Michael that his behaviour made it appear 
that he was endorsing this opportunity.  He made some personal attacks 
on my character that would most definately be actionable if repeated.
