UPDATED – see below.

G-PMC Registrars operators Daryl Guberman and Don LaBelle may be waking up to a new headache this morning. The two certificate mill operators have run what appear to be dozens of phony press releases, issued through LaBelle’s “Industrial PRnet” phone press release syndication service, attacking Oxebridge. The releases claim to be issued by a group called “ISOWatch,” and include a link to a website at “www.isowatch2017.com.” The only problem is that Guberman and LaBelle forgot to actually register the isowatch2017.com domain name.

So Oxebridge registered the domain, and now all traffic to the site resolves to the ISO Standards Users Legal Defense Fund on Fundrazr. The fund has already generated over $2000 towards a $10,000 goal intended to help Oxebridge prosecute and defend in various ISO-related litigation.

LaBelle’s Industrial PRnet operation publishes “press releases” authored by anyone, for a fee, without the verification of the actual veracity of the content. LaBelle helped Guberman boost his ISO consulting career by running fake press releases claiming Guberman had won a “best ISO consultant” contest that didn’t actually exist. Oxebridge proved the service was fake by then purchasing a press release indicating it was the “best ISO consultancy in the universe” which ran for days before LaBelle removed it. LaBelle currently runs a video claiming to be a new report by “CNN” discussing Guberman, but which is clearly an actor in front of a low-budget computer backdrop.

Fraudulent anti-Oxebridge website are a trend recently, as the fictional “John Peachfarm,” who operates the Elsmar.com quality forum website, is running an entire defamation website at oxebridge.co (not .com) and which is then mirrored at osteinfo.com. The sites are in violation of a current Federal court order, as well as international cybersquatting rules, and Oxebridge is in possession of evidence of “Peachfarm’s” actual identity — which will surprise exactly no one — which will be submitted it to the courts for a second contempt of court complaint. When fines fail, jail is the last possible remedy in such cases, and Oxebridge is pursuing this course.

UPDATE 5/19/2017 2:00 pm – A few hours after this post went up, the “Peachfarm” websites at oxebridge.co and osteinfo.com were updated with an announcement that they were being shut down, and the content was being removed. This doesn’t help “Peachfarm” at this point, but it explains why the sites are disappearing rapidly. The Oxebridge attorney continues to work on the contempt filing regardless. 

Meanwhile, ISO “risk based thinking” author Bill Levinson had created two entire websites following the Peachfarm model, and — Oxebridge has learned — with the collusion of the man behind “John Peachfarm” — to create two additional defamation sites targeting it, at www.oxebridge.biz and www.oxfake.com. Levinson — who is a professor with University of California Irvine — was revealed to have written about a decade of racially insensitive political writings, and subsequently had his book pulled from Amazon, his webinars cancelled with Compliance4all and his speaking engagement at an international ISO convention dropped. The two Levinson sites compared Oxebridge to Nazis, Communists and the terrorist group ISIS before being removed just prior to Levinson ironically launching a defamation lawsuit against Oxebridge; it appears Levinson’s attorney was not aware of the full breadth of Levinson’s hate campaign prior to agreeing to represent him. Oxebridge is moving to have the case thrown out, but has also prepared a “demonstrative and devastating” collection of over 100 pages of Levinson-authored racist comments.

Collectively, the Elsmar/Levinson websites are estimated to have taken hundreds of hours to generate and update, as well as the use of funds to pay for hosting and domain costs, pointing to near-obsessive hatred of Oxebridge that defies common sense and decency.

In Guberman’s case, he has now begun to attack family members on Ripoff Report, which would normally be a “red line” that few would cross.

The problem is compounded by the fact that all four men have either the tacit or direct support of groups such as the American Society for Quality (ASQ), Quality Digest magazine and others.

We’ll have more reporting on this shortly, but in the meantime you can donate to the fund and help defend against these vicious attacks. Click here for the Fundrazr site.
