By John Donovan: High tech sophisticated attacks are still targeting this website every few minutes, day and night. Someone with very deep pockets continues to spend a lot of time and resources trying to disrupt and thwart our activities. The associated threats also continue. I wonder when whoever is responsible will realise that their efforts are counter-productive? The underhand cowardly attacks and the related intimidation only makes us more determined to continue operating this entirely non-commercial website focused on the activities of Royal Dutch Shell Plc. Shell has denied any involvement or knowledge of the covert activity. We are aware that Shell has been in past contact with the National Cyber-Forensics & Training Alliance in Pittsburgh (of which Shell is a member) in an attempt to block our outspoken activities. This was triggered by Shell Oil Company in a panicked reaction to our contact with Bill O’Reilly of Fox News regarding Shell’s linkage with Iran – an extremely sensitive subject.
