Cue’s Icke to identify Stockhouse poster “scuba2223”

2011-01-20 15:01 ET – Street Wire

by Mike Caswell
John Icke, the chairman of Cue Resources Ltd., may soon learn the identity of a Stockhouse poster who wrote that Mr. Icke committed extortion in Paraguay. According to filings in the Supreme Court of British Columbia, the person responsible used an IP address at Canaccord Genuity Corp., and Canaccord has agreed to provide that person’s name.
Icke sues Stockhouse
Mr. Icke has been trying to identify the poster since Oct. 6, 2010, when he filed a notice of claim against Stockhouse Publishing Inc., asking for the IP address of a user called scuba2223. In the suit, he said that scuba2223 wrote the following post on Aug. 27, 2010: “Paraguayan Authorities are looking for John Icke regarding Cue Resources. The news said he is involved in stealing documents and extorsion [sic]!” The message had a header which read, “Paraguay going after John Icke.”

In completely unrelated news, IKN recalls that ex-Zed, the mining analyst Eric Zaunscherb, left his job at Canaccord in December 2010 in an abrupt manner that was wholly unexpected by his colleagues. But this is almost certainly unrelated to today’s story, as is the vague and possibly erroneous recollection that Zaunscherb is a scuba diving enthusiast.
