Why it pays to Blogsearch your own name 
(en francais)

A quick search with Blogsearch today and I found this blog.

Coincidently, the same day I received this email, around the same time the blog was created.

... but I disagree, which is my right, with Scott Tribe's or your characterization that an Albertan Liberal cannot support the CPC. Read the article written today, and you'll see that the Alberta Liberal Party is almost the spitting image of the CPC in terms of policies. The only problem is that the CPC "borrowed" these policies from the Alberta Liberal Party, because we were the first to introduce them (e.g., on accountability).

You are also an example of why the Blogging Tories should not be allowed to use the party name, because you give the CPC a bad name.

You are just as uneducated as Scott Tribe; otherwise, you'd know that the Alberta Liberal Party is a progressive conservative party and has the name "Liberal" only for historical reasons. Get your facts straight, think, and then, and only then, open your uneducated piehole.>
For reference, see the following posts:

Apparently someone didnt like getting nominated..

Who is Canada's Political Nut Of 2005? Prog Blog is accepting nominations.

I'll have to bookmark this for the 2006 nominations!

Edit: The following email was received from Mr. Patels:

If the most recent Kinsella example is anything to go by, you should be more careful about making careless assumptions. I have nothing to do with that childish blog in your name. Implying that I had anything to do with that is libellous, and if Kinsella can sue, so can I. You better post a retraction and remove my name from the context of that idiotic blog, or you'll be facing the same music as the Ottawa Watch blogger.

Yes, we did have our disagreements in the past, but setting up a blog like that is not my style at all. In fact, I did not even know your real name until tonight (at least, it never registered before - you were always just that "Soapbox" to me).

So, get off my back and retract those silly and libellous posts of yours. This is my first and last warning.
Mr. Patels, it what you say is true, then I do apologize if you have taken offence. Unlike the assorted hate mails and other threats you have sent me, I don't believe in holding a grudge. As far as the post goes - it stands.

Your other point, "but setting up a blog like that is not my style at all" ? You really should spend some time with Google or another neat little utility called the Way Back Machine. They're just two of many handy online tools. Any of these addresses ring a bell?
How about a file called blogcast.wma - sound familiar? Interesting listening.

That took about 5 minutes.

"So, get off my back" - As stated above, after reviewing the various hate mails you have delivered and perusing your public history online, I have no desire whatsoever to continue publishing, conversing or in any way referring to you. I've learned my lesson. Done
