We think it’s fair to say that Angela Power-Disney has had a difficult week so far.
Late last week, she published a couple of very nasty and defamatory videos on her Angie Power-Disney YouTube channel (she has two: “Angie” and “Angela”), full of bizarre and defamatory claims about people who she and Hoaxgirl (who seems to have had a hand in creating the videos) believe are affiliated with this blog.
Not only were their guesses wildly off the mark, they actually managed to implicate the names of a number of completely unrelated people, who got in touch with us in a state of distress: “Who is this woman, and why is she saying I eat children and make snuff films?”, etc.
Note to Angie: Some people use Google Alerts to monitor their online presence. Next time you decide to defame someone, perhaps you should consider that.
We assisted some of these people in filling in YouTube’s long and tedious “legal complaint” forms, and over the weekend, the videos began to fall. YouTube banned them in various countries: one in Canada, both in the UK.
The people who’d contacted us were immensely relieved, but Angela seemed a little peeved about it all. After all, what’s the point of putting up revolting videos if they don’t glean you at least a bit of attention?
Don’t negotiate with terrorists
Then, one of the people named in one of the videos contacted Angela, in hopes that she would see reason and stop harassing innocent people (including this person’s elderly parents). Instead, she kept the log of their Facebook texts, and made a third video in which she alleged that the person runs this blog, that he’s a child-abusing Satanist, and that “she has proof” that he claimed she was transgender.
We assume that this “proof” emanated from the same source as “proof” that this blog is run by “at least two” convicted paedophiles, not to mention the alleged-but-never-seen “40 pages of death threats” made here…none of which Angie’s “impeccable source” could ever manage to produce.
Note to Angie: Beware of certain Greek gentlemen bearing hot tips, even if they happen to coincide with your own nasty biases. You might get burned, as many others have.
Anyway. Where were we?
Oh, right. Angela taking the contents of a private conversation and turning it into even nastier allegations against a person whose only mistake was in believing that she could be persuaded to act like a decent human being.
Within 24 hours, that video, too, had been reported to YouTube, and shortly thereafter it was blocked in the UK.
Determined not to let little things like defamation and malicious communications laws deter her, Angela decided to re-upload Video #3 on Vimeo, where she assumed it would be safe from complaints.
She assumed her precious defamatory video would be safe on Vimeo. She assumed wrong.
A number of people flagged the video as harassing, and within hours, Vimeo had removed it.
And while they were at it, they cancelled her account.
Nice going, Vimeo. Pity YouTube couldn’t learn a lesson from you.
See, Angie? This is why you can’t have nice things.
A visit from the rozzers
Readers might recall that during the snowstorms last week, Angela made a Facebook live-stream video about her plumbing woes, and managed to throw in several pot-shots at the woman who cares for her elderly mother while she was at it. We wrote about this a few days ago.
Angela, never one to let common sense overwhelm her sick craving for attention, went a step further on Tuesday, making another video rant about how she’d seen the support worker she’d just finished slagging, and the woman had had the immortal rind to tell her to sod off! (In more polite terms than that, we should add.)
Angela managed to include several actionable pot-shots at her sisters along the way, accusing them of all sorts of malfeasance, but her main bile was directed at the woman she’d already defamed.
We learned yesterday that Angela had had a visit from the Oldcastle Gardaí, telling her to remove the video about her mother’s support worker, and warning her not to mention her online again.
Bit of a sore loser?
Angela’s response to all this has been uncharacteristically brief, though she does manage to fit in a bit of conspiranoid/faux pious nonsense:
The answer to this question is simple, of course: no one likes being lied about.
When you tell malicious lies about people, those people will generally react, and not usually favourably. Hence all the YouTube strikes, the Vimeo ban, the Facebook ban, and even the visit from the local constabulary. It’s not difficult to work out.
We’ll be keeping an eagle eye out for further defamatory sludge emanating from Angie’s gaping maw. (In fact, we’re expecting another squirt to emerge soonish, as apparently Angela and Heifer have kissed (blechh!) and made up, and are planning to team up for an interview.)
But what with the police looking over her shoulder, Facebook restricting her posts, strikes accumulating against her YouTube accounts, and Vimeo unwilling to co-operate with her attempts to harass anyone who dares to cross her, we suspect Angela’s days of
defecating on defaming anyone she wants are about to come to an end.
