Snap Technologies' Octavio Marquez malicious calls, part II

By Aleksander Boyd

London 05.05.05 | The honourable Octavio Marquez from Snap Technologies decided to give me another ring this afternoon. The fact that I was not home, and my wife took the call, acted, perhaps, as a tranquilizer. He sounded upset, according to my wife, to whom he asked whether or not I was going to reply to an email he had sent me (see below). I won't, however I'll take his challenge and I will also take this opportunity to make this email public, so that in the future potential clients of Snap Technologies searching for information in that respect can get a glimpse of the utmost professionalism that characterizes Mr Marquez and his company.

Aleksander..I love how scumbags like yourself only publish one side of the story. I would dare you to publish the email that you sent me (see below) where you are basically insinuating that you will come after me if something happens to your miserable ,pathetic little life. I hope you understand that I don not care about your political views or Royís. My job is to host a website and if you feel that that you would like to censor V-headline I wish that you would take some legal action instead of ranting like a fucking baby. Please grow up and get a life. And go fuck yourself.

Octavio Marquez

PS please go ahead and publish my email on your crappy little site so that all your readers can see how pathetic you really are. Itís great to see a grown man like you crying foul when things donít go your way.

Dear Octavio,

Does the name Freddy Betancourt ring a bell? If not I should spell it out for you; he was given a beating by some chavista thugs in Brussels, those Mr Carson so feverishly defend for a price, for voicing his opinions in public vis-a-vis Hugo Chavez.

I did go to the police this morning and the advice given was "issue a civil injunction against Roy Carson" should he fail to remove the said information from his website, counsel that I shall pursue. We discussed this issue back in January and I feel I need to stress, in no uncertain terms, that if due to Mr Carson's stalking activities some chavista decides to take things further and harms my family or myself you will also pay the consequences of such actions.

Snap Technologies' Octavio Marquez malicious calls
By Aleksander Boyd

London 03.05.05 | On Sunday 24th of March El Universal published an interview of Roberto Giusti to myself. The response of the usual chavista sycophants did not take long. On Monday 25th Roy Carson posted, under his pen name Carlos Herrera, an article in his Vheadline website packed with the usual prevarications. In January this year, due to a similar article, I took issue with Octavio Marquez of Snap Technologies, which provides the hosting to Vheadline. He seemed a reasonable enough man; he even simpathise with my concerns of Roy Carson publishing my contact details and address stating that as a father he could understand my preoccupation. Octavio Marquez then talk to Roy Carson and requested him to remove the said information, which was done, not before links to the WHOIS database for my domain were conveniently posted instead of the more specific details that were the object the issue. Octavio Marquez and I convene for me to send him an email entitled "Terms of Agreement" in which I stated that I would not issue legal proceedings against him, or his company as hosting provider for Vheadline, for my issue was with Roy Carson.

True to my word I did not do anything else until last Friday when, in view of the latest rant, I sent him a reminder of our agreed terms. He did not reply. So I sent another email today, this time round I copied Roy Carson, whose response was ever so gentlemanly, typical of a chavista who lives by his pro-constitutional, pro-democracy and pro-Venezuela precepts. So what would Octavio Marquez, a responsible Mexican-Canadian entrepreneur do to remedy this situation? This afternoon at around 5.25 (London time) he got on the phone to yours truly and said without mincing words "if you continue sending me emails I am the one who's going to get on a plane to the UK to beat the crap out of you". He then call a second time (5.28 PM London time) to tell me how pathetic and childish I was and that he could not do anything in regards to Roy Carson latest stalking activities, despite the fact that he is meant to be the principal of the company that hosts Vheadline.

If I remember correctly, when Eva Golinger threatened to sue me for defamation raising the issue with my host provider, they immediately got in touch with me asking me either to remove the damaging material or face the legal consequences. The fact that the information published was true, susceptible of successful cross examination and in the public domain appease the concerns voiced my host provider. When one compares the aforesaid with Roy Carson's posting of pictures of this area, his easy to debunk arguments, coupled with Octavio Marquez's honourable and respectful behaviour one realizes that birds of a feather flock together.
