I’ve grown a thick skin over the years, but Akiba Leisman, CEO of Mako Mining (MKO.v), a person who cannot stand the truth about his stock price performance and dictatorship support in his face, has crossed the line.
I get called all sorts of things all the time by the morons on social media, it doesn’t bother me. The hate-filled idiots even show up in the comments section here on the blog or my mailbox, it’s the easiest thing in the world to spam them away with a click of a button (though when the “You’re a paid pumper, Mark” stuff comes along it makes me sigh and wonder just how much slush money I refuse, when 90% of newsletter writers are on the take). But when I’m accused of pedophilia, the line gets crossed in no uncertain terms.
The hate-filled bigot Bob Moriarty was the last to find out the hard way after trying to spread similar filth about me, that coward has skulked off after getting his heinous lies thrown back in his face. This time it’s Akiba Leisman, CEO of Mako Mining (MKO.v), who thinks it’s funny to spread criminal rumours and absolute lies about me having sex with children. Even if I weren’t the father of a six-month old this would be too much, as it is his absolute fabrication of untruths about my person potentially puts me under the gaze of social authorities.
When learning of Leisman’s repeated and false rumour-mongering about me on this subject, two days ago, I immediately wrote to him and stated politely but firmly that he retract and apologize for the outright lies he spreads about me online. I pointed out to him that his behaviour was unbecoming of a senior business executive in a position of influence and speaks badly of him as a person. His only reply was a sarcastic comment, unrelated to my complaint.
I am unafraid of liars and bullies such as Akiba Leisman and while most of the abuse I get from the moron end of the mining world isn’t an issue, this is. I require a full apology and retraction from Akiba Leisman, CEO of Mako Mining (MKO.v), for the absolute falsehood and lies he is telling about me being a pedophile.
UPDATE: I have received an apology from Akiba Leisman. The matter is now closed.
