AVSN: The Doxxing of Peter Tiernan - the Doxxers

This section focuses on the people responsible for the doxxing and the major participants. For an overview of the doxxing incident, please refer to post AVSN: The Doxxing of Peter Tiernan - an Overview.

It is important to note that only three individuals have claimed responsiblity for the doxxing: Brett Smith, Belgin Sila Colak/Arslan, and Breana Stanley. All other people mentioned here were either major participants in the doxxing or else participated in any capacity but held prominent positions in the anti-vaccination movement.

Ed note: some of the more incriminating evidence has been withheld from this post due to the ongoing criminal investigation and civil litigation.

The Doxxing Crew

Brett Smith - AVSN Public Officer

Brett Smith is a Sydney-based naturopath and owner of Just Organics (Bondi Junction, NSW). He was the original Registered Officer (AEC) of the Health Australia Party and is the current Public Officer of the Australian Vaccination-skeptics Network (formerly AVN).

Brett Smith was the major perpetrator in the doxxing of Peter Tiernan. A normal person would consider his acts of writing, publishing, and disseminating the doxxing material to be abhorrent enough. But Smith hadn't stopped there.

Prior to the public doxxing, Smith had made pathetic attempts to identify Reasonable Hank. On the 18th and 19th October 2016, Reasonable Hank had contacted Holdsworth House Medical Practice in relation to one of its staff members and he'd left his phone number for a senior staff member to contact him. His subsequent blog post about the anti-vaccination activities of this staff member was published on 20 October.

Shortly after the blog post was published, Hank received a phone call from Dr Andrew Gowrie, who identified himself as a representative of Holdsworth House Medical Practice calling on behalf of the Managing Director, Dr Dick Quan.

On 21 October, Hank received a phone message from the same number by a person identifying themselves as Andrew Gowrie (refer image at left).

Again staying true to form with the standards we expect from anti-vaccination conspiracists, Smith was impersonating a doctor from this medical practice as evidenced by Smith using a phone number he had previously publicly advertised as his own.


Smith only became publicly involved in the anti-vaccination movement in 2015. He's a member of the AVSN and was appointed Public Officer of the AVSN effective 3 February 2017. It's highly likely that he was an AVN committee member prior to this.

The AVSN is the official licensee in Australia for Wakefield's anti-vaccination movie, Vaxxed, and is responsible for all Australian screenings. The format of the Australian screenings so far has included a Q&A session after the screening, featuring a number of guest panellists. In the first few screenings, Brett Smith was one of the featured guests.

3 November 2016

Brett Smith lowers the bar of anti-vaccination movement standards, publishing Reasonable Hank Exposed, part one of his doxxing series about Reasonable Hank.

image: excerpt - title section of Brett Smith's article (part 1) doxxing Peter Tiernan
Public Health Lobbying 101, antivax thug style
Most health professionals with something to say about public health measures might be tempted to write a scientific paper for peer review, or make a submission to government.

Other people might devote their time to alerting the public of dangers to public health.

But, if you you happen to be an unprofessional, conspiracy-laden naturopath, embarking on a doxxing campaign of intimidation and harassment might seem an easier option.

Science and political lobbying can be hard, difficult work. Best left to the adults.

Brett Smith and Belgin Colak/Arslan telling Hank it's his fault if (non-Hank) Tiernan is being targeted.

Facebook post by Belgin Colak/Arslan
Smith/Colak: we will sacrifice our freedomz just to see your face…
''REASONABLE HANK: If you PROVE us wrong that you're NOT Peter Tiernan, me and Brett Smith are making an official announcement that we are going to vaccinate our children and retire from this movement. By all means start a defamation case if you're reading this (to which you probably are) and if you're really concerned about this protecting this family [wink] then you would man up. P.S Let Jane Hansen know that me and Belgin are available for photos for her story… Signed Brett and Belgin''

5 November 2016

Numerous media articles about the doxxing are published between the 5th and 8th of November. Publishers included Fairfax, News Ltd and the ABC.
Every article highlights the distress caused to Tiernan and his family, the harassment and intimidation they have been subjected to, and that the doxxers had identified the wrong person.

In for a penny, in for a pound. Let's add illegal phone recordings to the list.
As is clearly evidenced by the media articles, Brett Smith has doxxed the wrong person and the Tiernan family are greatly distressed.

Brett Smith continues with the harassment and intimidation by threatening to publish even more doxxing articles and to release illegally obtained telephone recordings.

9 November 2016

Brett Smith (as Lucas Jackson Kelly) provided a new definition of hypocrisy in a ranting Facebook post instructing people to cease with negative, bad behaviour. Excerpts follow:

''What I will say though is that we all need to pull our heads in now. No attacking each other online or in the bloody real world. It's sad and counter productive. Makes all just wanna throw in the towel.''

''To be frank, I'm tired of all the bickering and squabbling. It's just embarrassing to be part of. More so when it online for the world to see. Let's stop.''

10 November 2016

Brett Smith makes good on his threat, publishing Jane Hansen, Reasonable Hank, and Murdoch's dirty vaccine war, part two of his doxxing series about Reasonable Hank.

image: excerpt - title section of Brett Smith's article (part 2) doxxing Peter Tiernan
Let's add extortion to the list
Excerpt:
''Your call Hank? How many more 'innocent' people are going to get fingered so you can keep up your cowardly charade?''

It's all Hank's fault that Brett Smith and the anti-vaccination movement will be forced to dox everyone until he shows his face.

Here, watch me suspend this kitten over an open flame until everyone reading this post sends me $20. Your fault if the kitten ignites.

13 November 2016

''Tiernan is Hank. I got the right bloke. Just too scared to embrace his inner online stalker. Coward. Like you.''

6 December 2016

The Australian premiere of Vaxxed in Logan, QLD. Incredibly, the AVSN used this Vaxxed screening to take another swipe at Reasonable Hank.

The tweet, sent by Vles and retweeted by Smith, reads ''Hi Hankie Pank and friends from #stopavn. Just a message from the Smith Brothers at the #Vaxxed premier. @pHarmaNemesis.''

Brett Smith was at the Vaxxed premiere serving in an official capacity for AVSN.

8 December 2016

Brett Smith threatens to publish a third doxxing article that will include all of Tiernan's immediate family members.

''You sure you want Blog 3? You better ask Tiernan, it links all his immediate family members.''

Brett Smith's campaign of harassment and intimidation has yet to find a boundary.

10 December 2016

The AVSN, clearly having no problems with Brett Smith's campaign of intimidation and harassment against an innocent traumatised family, again invite Smith as a special guest panellist for the Melbourne screening of Vaxxed.

The Melbourne screening of Vaxxed was held in a room at Vitality Chiropractic, owned by chiropractors Simon Floreani and Jennifer Barham-Floreani.

This was yet another opportunity for the dox crew and AVSN to show off their professionalism. Image at left shows Brett Smith, Olivier Vles (Truth Library), Trent Wiseman (AVSN committee member) and Luke O'Hehir, in a tweet sent by Vles which reads, ''Another day. More #VaxXed screenings!

Brett Smith still insists that Tiernan is Hank.

Dig up, stupid.
Brett Smith [quote]:

''That's the name he likes the troll under. His real name is Peter Tiernan. Hank exposed.''

You can lead an idiot to facts, but you can't make them…

4 January 2017

And Brett Smith's campaign of intimidation and harassment against Tiernan just keeps going and going.

image: Tweet by Brett Smith, naming Tiernan as a physiotherapist from Byron, calls him a coward and a dead shit
Coz attacking people using your real name is totally OK
Brett Smith [quote]:

''Tiernan? The cowardly physiotherapist from Byron? Loves anonymously attacking vax injured families and nurses online. Dead shit''

image: Tweet by Brett Smith, implying Peter Tiernan should be held responsible for all kids injured or killed by vaccines
At this stage, the name Tiernan is occupying Smith's every thought.
Brett Smith [quote]:

''Yep… if your child is injured/killed by a vaccine remember the name Peter Tiernan. I will.''

5 January 2017

Brett Smith again makes reference to the illegal phone recordings and with an extra serve of intimidation.

image: Tweet by Brett Smith, confirming he has contacted both Tiernan and Hank, and a visit to Byron Bay
Brett Smith [quote]:

''Except my audio of 'both' before Tiernan knew voice identification was an issue. That and my visit to Byron.''

20 January 2017

Brett Smith's intimidatory, offensive and defamatory campaign against Tiernan continues, and again threatens to release illegal phone recordings.

''Keep denying it Tiernan you gutless twat, that audio will be released and even your troll mates will smirk.''

''You live with your mum in Byron. I've been there. Remember?''

''I'm booked into a good physio next month. Up Byron way… got his name here somewhere…''

29 January 2017

Brett Smith (as Lucas Jackson Kelly) now threatens to extend his campaign of intimidation and harassment by doxxing everyone associated with Reasonable Hank, encouraging others to send him information on Hank to be published, and gloats that he's nearly destroyed him.

image: Brett Smith Facebook post, asking for more info on Tiernan for publication, threatening to dox anyone associated with Tiernan, and goloating that Tiernan is almost destroyed
Coz decent human beings just love doxxing other human beings

Brett Smith [quote]:

''Anyone associated with or working with Hank will be exposed. Peter Tiernan's behaviour should not be tolerated by any decent human being. Soon the CDC will be in jail. PHarma's cowardly online hit squads should follow. Anyone who has information on Hank they feel needs to be published please contact me. Hank's day is almost done, let's send him out a loser.''

The reason Smith requests more information on Hank becomes clear a few days later.

31 January 2017

Brett Smith announces new doxxing material will be published.

image: Tweet by Brett Smith, announcing another article (pert 3) doxxing Peter Tiernan
Brett Smith [quote]:

''Oh and I have new blog about Hank and his pHarma buddies due tomorrow. Til your end Hank.''

3 February 2017

What a day for Brett Smith and the Australian anti-vaccination movement!

Allow me to introduce to you, the newly appointed Public Officer of the Australian Vaccination-skeptics Network (formerly Australian Vaccination Network), Brett Smith.

In true AVSN style, continuing its fine tradition of unprofessionalism and harassment, its new Public Officer Brett Smith celebrated by publishing part 3 of his doxxing series on Peter Tiernan.
He was ably assisted by fellow AVSN committee members, Trent Wiseman and Meryl Dorey, in spreading this latest instalment of harassment and intimidation.

Brett Smith prepares to celebrate the destruction of Peter Tiernan.

5 February 2017

Brett Smith continues to defame, harass and intimidate Tiernan on social media, and threatens to put Tiernan and his associates out of business.

I'm sure there's medication to treat this level of obsessiveness & delusion
Brett Smith [quotes]:

''Yes that's true but he is not comfortable stalking men… he can get very fearful. You should hear him''

''Peter Tiernan is Reasonable Hank. Here are a few blogs on this degenerate.'' [link redacted]

''I will put him and his government/media buddies out of business. Count on it.''

''His name is Peter Tiernan. Check this troll out at [link redacted] Serial stalker of vax damaged fams.''

15 March 2017

Someone tweets Brett Smith the ABC story where Peter Tiernan speaks about being mistakenly identified as Hank.

Brett Smith responds with an (ironic) derp, an insistence Tiernan is Hank, and link to his doxxing website.

Brett Smith [quote]:

''Right person. Cowardly online stalker Reasonable Hank is Peter Tiernan. Derp!''

18 March 2017

Brett Smith engaging in yet more intimidation and harassment against Tiernan on social media.

Fair to say it's pathological by now? yeah, I reckon
Brett Smith [quote]:

''Yes Tiernan, you gutless shmuck, stop hiding in your mum's basement, put up or shut up. In your own name.''

''Peter (Hank) Tiernan is a gutless, online, stalker of woman and vaccine damaged families. No show.''

''Tiernan cowardly stalks/intimidates families online because, a) he is dumb as rock, & b) he loves Pharma.''

28 March 2017

Brett Smith still going at it. The AVO he refers to is in regard to one of the other doxxers. Ongoing civil litigation prevents me from commenting further at this stage.

image: Tweet by Brett Smith, still insisting Tiernan is Hank and referring to an AVO taken out by one of the other doxxers
Brett Smith [quote]:

''Reasonable Hank? Is Tiernan still hiding behind that pseudonym? Man up Pete, then you too can take 5'1" mums to court for AVOs.''

Brett Smith's savage, childish attacks on Tiernan have been relentless and are still continuing.
The evidence presented here is in no way complete; it is but a snapshot of his obsessive vendetta.

His campaign of harassment and intimidation against Peter Tiernan boasts many supporters from the Australian anti-vaccination movement, including the AVSN, where even its President, Tasha David, has joined in on the 'fun' on multiple occasions.

In closing, here are a few social media posts made by Brett Smith in April 2017 which continue to bear testimony to his lack of professionalism, maturity and decency.

Facebook post by Brett Smith, still insisting that Peter Tiernan is Hank, and confirming police have contacted him about the doxxing
Ahhhh, that's the problem. Head is all ears and not much else.
Anne, please tell him, coz he definitely ain't listening to anyone else telling him Tiernan isn't Hank.

Brett Smith [quote]:

''You poor simple fool. Even when you get handed Hank on a silver platter you can't work it out. Peter Tiernan is Hank. You know I've had 3 different visits from 3 different police stations asking for that blog to be taken down or I'd be sued or charged. Blog not only still up I added another one. They are still up. No charges, no sued. Why you think I got it wrong? Because Jane Hansen told you so? Because Hank told you so? Tell us all Anna, who is Reasonable Hank? I'm all ears?''

Facebook post by Brett Smith, still insisting Peter Tiernan is hank
Brett Smith still banging on his silver platter... but nobody is listening.
Yep, some people just can't be helped.

Brett Smith [quote]:

''If you find it shocking you don't know me. Anne typifies all that is wrong in this movement. You know the idiot that wanders in half way through the movie not knowing what the f..k is going on then starts asking lots of dumb questions? That's Anne. See, Hank was handed to you on a silver platter, but because Murdoch, Tiernan, & a certain troll in our midst all told you it was a big mistake you all ran screaming away in the opposite direction. See some people just can't be helped.''

Belgin Sila Colak/Arslan

Belgin Sila Arslan (aka Belgin Sila Colak) is a mother based in Pendle Hill, NSW. She originated from the Occupy movement's fringe group of chemtrail, flat earth, conspiracy clowns, and was the original organiser of the No Jab, No Pay protest rally in Sydney. She is the founder and administrator of the AVA Facebook page and group.

Belgin Colak/Arslan is another of the main doxxers and, like Smith, employed dubious and intimidating tactics in trying to identify Reasonable Hank. In October 2016, Belgin Colak/Arslan harassed and threatened Tiernan at his workplace, stating that she knew his wife and daughter's name. Belgin Colak/Arslan also made direct contact with Tiernan's 14 year old daughter via social media in an attempt to reach the father.

Belgin Colak/Arslan was instrumental in spreading the dox articles all over social media, and allowed threatening and harassing posts to remain in Facebook groups and pages that she administered. The first post that linked to Smith's doxxing article was made by Belgin in her AVA Facebook pages and she didn't waste time posting links to numerous other Facebook pages she was associated with.

On 12 December 2016 Belgin Colak/Arslan published Tiernan's home address on a public Facebook page and threatened to upload illegal phone recordings made by Colak/Arslan to Hank.

Like Smith, Belgin has never backed down in insisting that Tiernan is Hank. Like Smith, she shifted her campaign of harassment and intimidation up a gear, by publishing posts on multiple Facebook pages stating that Tiernan/Hank is a pedophile.

Ed note: due to the ongoing criminal investigation and civil litigation there is a significant amount of material and background information I am unable to include here at this time.

The post comments quickly filled up with defamatory comments about Tiernan, including calling him a pedophile, and Colak/Arslan posted many pictures of Tiernan and his family.

Belgin Sila Colak/Arslan's duplicate post on another AVA Facebook page saw her also posting photos and details of Peter Tiernan's sister, parents and wife, and provided details of Tiernan's employment.
Update 9 April: I have been advised that the photo and details of Tiernan's sister was yet another case of mistaken identity; another complete stranger doxxed by these clowns.

''URGENT PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT''

''We give great pleasure in announcing that after several weeks of investigations we have found and located 'Reasonable Hank'. We urge all of our members who have had any defamation or any personal information collected and posted publicly by him to go and take screenshots NOW as he is aware and they are covering their tracks and the page ''things anti-vaxxer say'' has already been removed.''

''We are now in the process of organising a class action against him.''

''We urge all people from Byron Bay to be aware he does work at Ballina Hospital and is unfortunately in the heart of most of us anti-vaxxers, reporting and vilifying us over the last 7 years.''

''Despite trying to keep this under wraps to assist the nurse who have lost their jobs and homes thanks to the skeptics we have had to now reveal that we have finalised our investigations and we can present all the information required for any court process.''

5 November 2016

Taking a page out of the AVSN Rules of Engagement handbook, Belgin Sila Colak/Arslan in a doxxing-related post to her AVA Facebook group, makes this highly offensive comment:

''After further investigating I am not even sure I am convinced baby Riley and Dana McCaffery were even real babies as it seems that everything they have done is staged and fabricated to suit their agenda.''
Colak/Arslan duplicated this post in other groups and on her personal Facebook page.

6 November 2016

On 5 November, media articles appeared about the doxxing incident, highlighting the distress that was being caused to the Tiernan family.

Belgin Sila Colak/Arslan gives her typical response to seeing someone in distress - laughter.

Breana Stanley

Breana Stanley (Mernda, VIC) is an admin of the AVA Facebook page and group, and is also a late entrant to the anti-vaccination movement, coming from the no jab conspiracy circus. The third and final member of the main doxxers, Stanley was also instrumental in spreading the doxxing material online and encouraging harassment of the Tiernan family.

And like Colak/Arslan, material has been withheld here due to the ongoing criminal investigation and civil litigation.

Breana Stanley's contributions to a post by Meryl Dorey on one of AVSN's Facebook pages, providing a link to the doxxing article on Smith's website, and with bonus threat of more doxxing to come.

This was Stanley's response to the first media article about the distress her doxxing was causing to the Tiernan family.

The main doxxing crew were becoming a little frustrated at the lack of reaction from 'normal' people (who out of concern for the Tiernan family, were doing their best not to inflame the situation). This led to the main doxxing crew deliberately making inflammatory and offensive posts about the McCaffery and Hughes families. Stanley mentions the McCafferys here and again threatens more doxxing material is on its way. Of course, all this could be stopped if only Hank would take down his blog. That damn Hank.

Tasha David has been President of the AVSN since July 2014.

In 2016, AVSN became the official licensee for the movie Vaxxed in Australia, and has been the organiser of all screenings. On 6 December 2016, the AVSN held the Australian premiere of Vaxxed in Logan QLD. At the end of the screening there was a live cross to Andrew Wakefield, Del Bigtree and Brian Hooker. On stage at the venue, there was a panel of invited guests, one of which was Brett Smith.

If you needed reminding, it has been only a matter of weeks since Brett Smith published two articles doxxing Peter Tiernan, resulting in widespread media attention and condemnation by even some anti-vaccination proponents.

Tasha David, in her capacity as AVSN President, introduced him as follows:

Tasha David [quote]:

''Brett Smith, my favourite troll slayer.
Brett Smith is a naturopath and he's also very, very knowledgeable on the subject. He's gone to Canberra with us to fight for our rights.''

In the video, don't miss Tasha's hearty laughter after the 'favourte troll slayer' comment, and the Vaxxed audience joining in. Yep, harassment and intimidation is totally hilarious.

Go, AVSN! Keep those harassment fires burning.

AVSN held the Melbourne screening of Vaxxed at Vitality Chiropractic, owned by chiropractors Simon Floreani and Jennifer Barham-Floreani. Brett Smith appeared as a guest panellist for the Q&A session after the movie.

Tasha David, in her capacity as AVSN President, introduced Brett Smith as ''a naturopath and troll slayer'' to her Melbourne audience.

Meryl Dorey - AVSN Treasurer, Spokesperson, past President & Founder

Meryl Dorey founded the AVSN in 1994 and was its President from inception until January 2013. Despite Dorey's claim that she no longer holds any official position within the organisation, she is responsible for AVSN finances and fundraising, the postal address for AVSN is her personal post office box, she still speaks out on behalf of the AVSN, and was a representative of AVSN in negotiations for the Australian licence for the movie Vaxxed.

22 October 2016

Dorey retweets AHPRA's link to its statement on nurses & midwives engaging in anti-vaccination activities.

In response to a reply which denigrated Reasonable Hank, Dorey tweeted:

Tweet by Meryl Dorey, celebrating the payback that will be coming Hank's way
Meryl Dorey being Meryl Dorey

Meryl Dorey [quote]:

''Payback truly is a bitch & it's great to see some going his way!''

Dorey is referring to Reasonable Hank. I note she made this tweet just over a week before the doxxing went public. Her comment in regard to payback going his way begs the question: did Dorey know what was coming?

6 November 2016

Meryl Dorey posts a link to the Daily Telegraph article about the doxxing to multiple AVSN's Facebook groups, of which she is an administrator.

Facebook post by Meryl Dorey, posted to multiple pages, inviting speculation that Peter Tiernan is Hank
Meryl Dorey jumping on the doxxing bandwagon
In contrast to what a normal person would do (inform people to stop harassing and tormenting the Tiernan family), Dorey's comment, ''Wrong man? What do U think?', invites speculation and incitement.

As Dorey intended, the post threads were full of defamatory comments about Tiernan.

Dorey's cherry on top moment came when one of the doxxers, Breana Stanley, posted a link to the doxxing article and proudly announced (threatened) a second doxxing article would shortly be published.

10 January 2017

Meryl Dorey retweets a video by Olivier Vles which alleges that Peter Tiernan is Reasonable Hank.

31 January 2017

Three months after the doxxing started, Meryl Dorey continues her personal campaign of harassment and intimidation against Tiernan, celebrating the next sordid instalment by Brett Smith.

Meryl Dorey, overcome with excitement, makes Brett Smith AVSN's Public Officer
Meryl Dorey, who basically made a living out of claiming persecution and demanding that it stop, celebrating the persecution of someone else.

The hypocrisy on display here is truly staggering.

Meryl Dorey [in reply to Brett Smith]:

''I can hardly wait, [Brett Smith]! Exposing the septic slime is so important. And Hank is 1 of the worst #DrainTheSepticSwamp #HealthFreedom''

5 February 2017

Meryl Dorey continuing her personal campaign of harassment and intimidation against the Tiernan family, promoting Brett Smith's doxxing material and labelling Tiernan a ''special kind of evil''.

Special mention to Brett Smith, going all out redoxxing Tiernan with bonus derogatory turd description on the day his new appointment as AVSN Public Officer came into effect.

With Meryl Dorey's track record of harassing people, there is no doubt that Brett Smith is a worthy successor as AVSN Public Officer.

Not just any turd; EVIL turds…
Meryl Dorey [in reply to Brett Smith]:

''It takes a special kind of evil to target an innocent family because they have suffered a vaccine reaction. Peter IS that kind of special.''

image: Meryl Dorey retweets Brett Smith, calling Tiernan the world's biggest coweard
No, Tiernan is the victim of the world's biggest cowards. Fixed it for you.
Meryl Dorey retweeting Brett Smith, ''Tiernan is the world's biggest coward''.

Meryl Dorey replies to a tweet which said that Hank is a disturbed individual, and that his regret will come Sharply. Whatever the hell that means.

Revenge of biblical proportions

Trent Wiseman - AVSN Committee Member

Trent Wiseman (Eltham, VIC) is a committee member of AVSN. He is another blow-in from the conspiracy fringes of the Occupy movement.

9 November

The vaccine paradigm and new world order according to AVSN committee member, Trent Wiseman.

image: Facebook post by Trent Wiseman, advising the doxxing article was correct in identifying Peter Tiernan as Hank followed by a ridiculous conspiracy political rant
Do as I say, not as I do, says doxxing enthusiast Trent Wiseman
In case you were distracted by the insightful political commentary in this Facebook post, Peter Tiernan is Hank and is having an aneuryism.

Psst…

I hear there's another blog coming out proving that the man exposed as the lowly pro vax blogger was correct in its assertion. Don't believe the media dismissal of the story, you all know how little credibility the media has, especially that pro vax shill Janey hanso…

The blogger deserves no publicity here. We're all better than to stoop to his despicable level of abuse and intimidation, please keep it that way regardless of what he deserves. Please don't do anything to validate the way he and his associates seek to incorrectly demonise us.

Just know however that he now has a public face, and the coward that he is he'll hopefully now crawl back under a rock.

I dare say the old spank will be having an aneurysm along with his extremist pro pharma bully rat pack knowing that their needle pushing pro gmo, pro war candidate hillary has been ousted by Amercia. The world is waking up. England says no to the establishment. America says no to the establishment.

AND DONALD TRUMP SAID ''i WILL FIX THIS'' TO WAKEFIELD ABOUT THE VACCINE AUTISM ISSUE. THAT HE WILL CLEAN UP THE CDC.

Times are a changing good people, the corrupt vaccine paradigm is taking its last miserable gasps before falling over. Hold strong. The good guys always win in the end.''

tl;dr: Play by our rules, nobody gets hurt.
Trent Wiseman [quote]:

''Very interesting read indeed. Do I detect a dislike of one's own medicine in this saga? May this issue take on a more rational, reasonable tone now the mask has been removed. How's about we all focus on the task at hand, the quest for child health, rather than continuing attempts at censoring the required discussion.''

Trent Wiseman also made a duplicate post to the Vaccine Choice Australia Facebook page.

''Know thy enemy. Please read and meet both the faces behind, and dirty tactics used by the pro vaccine extremist lobby. The highest level of experts in misinformation, fear, slander and intimidation. Don't trust the lowly, corrupt individuals mentioned within, do some of uour own independant digging on pharmaceutical safety and efficacy. The health of your loved ones depend on it.''

Olivier Vles

Olivier Vles (Rye, VIC) runs the absurd conspiracy website, Truth Library. Like most of the worst tantruming toddlers in our anti-vaccination movement, he's yet another blow-in from the conspiracy fringes. His website & social media feeds are full of stories about chemtrails, illuminati, 9/11 troof, UFOs, mass shootings troof (incl. Port Arthur), David Icke, false flag ops, etc.

Olivier Vles had his hate campaign against Reasonable Hank and Australian skeptics going well before this doxxing incident. With his wife, Giselle Kara Vles, they created the ridiculous hate page on Facebook, The Unreasonable Wank.

In his blog post The Unreasonable Wankers behind Reasonable Hank (dated 1 May 2016), Vles names some prominent skeptics, including Peter Bowditch, Peter Tierney, and Ken McLeod. He concludes the post by stating that the skeptics involved with Hank are pedophiles and child molesters.
Excerpt follows:

''And if we are going to call people out by association then we must not forget that all skeptics are most likely pedophiles and child molesters. As they for years followed their American leader James Randi. The Australian skeptics have even flown this kiddy fiddler out to speak at their congress. That's what is behind the Reasonable Hank page. An unreasonable, family attacking, trolling pedophile group of wankers.''

Olivier Vles, like many alternative news & conspiracy types, frequently smear their critics or targets of their frustration, with the pedophile label.

Olivier Vles was instrumental in the campaign of harassment and intimidation against the Tiernan family, immediately replicating all three of Smith's doxxing posts on his Truth Library website as soon as they were published. In addition, Vles shared links to the doxxing articles widely on social media, via his pseudonyms Truth Library and Bernie Smith.

Adam Crabb runs a conspiracy website called The Crazz Files and its associated social media accounts. I feel it necessary to warn prospective readers of his material that his internet feeds are overflowing with the most utterly offensive material, including anti-semitism, holocaust denial, racism, islamophobia, homophobia… the list goes on. And of course, every conspiracy I've ever heard of or seen.

''Why is he making a complaint if the wrong guy was exposed? What a laughable & pathetic attempt to try spook people. If you are going to complain to the police then at least do it properly as this just makes you more guilty.''

Judy Wilyman

Judy Wilyman hardly needs an introduction. After years of foot-stomping that people stop describing her as anti-vaccination, the moment she obtained her PhD she threw off her (by now) threadbare cloak of respectability to reveal the anti-vaccination monster within. And oh boy, has she been making the most of that freedom.

Wilyman isn't new to dirty tactics, as evidenced by her astonishing display of cruelty and unprofessionalism toward the McCafferys in 2012, ably assisted by Meryl Dorey and the AVSN.

Judy Wilyman still can't help herself. Here, she posts a link to Brett Smith's first doxxing article on Peter Tiernan.

image: Facebook post by Judy Wilyman, linking to article (part 1) doxxing Peter Tieran
Judy, real academics tend to rely on peer-reviewed sources
And kudos to frozen-foetuses-in-crates Wendy Lydall for liking Wilyman's post. Lydall was another of the guest panellists with Brett Smith at AVSN's Melbourne screening of Vaxxed, and appeared alongside Wilyman as a speaker at a recent anti-vaccination seminar held by Wilyman.

In case you were thinking it a little odd that an academic with a PhD would do such a thing, we need only take a peek into the past to see Wilyman and Smith are no strangers.
