Shell Industrial Espionage

By John Donovan

We are in high level email correspondence with Royal Dutch Shell regarding extraordinary – some might say sensational – information confirmed by the U.S. Dept of Defense. The correspondence has not been productive thus far as Shell officials are playing peek-a-boo and pass the parcel. We intend to publish the information tomorrow unless we receive a request from Shell today providing an indication of when we can expect a substantive response. Shell has no need to play for time. We will delay publication to give Shell further time to investigate provided a clear indication is given of when we can expect a substantive response. By coincidence or otherwise, our website has, for some unknown reason, crashed several times in the last 24 hours. We have had 28 notifications of “technical problems” with our website (hosted on a dedicated server) within the last 15 hours. If we have further problems, or disappear from the Internet altogether, you can draw your own conclusions on what might have happened. In an episode of the intrigue we have come to expect from Shell, it managed to close down  once before, fortunately only briefly. That was after Shell’s failed attempt in 2005 to seize the domain name.?

In March 2007, Shell set up a counter-measures team to take us on. One Shell internal email marked “Legally Privileged and Confidential” contained an admittance that Shell was on the back foot as a result of our activities and threatened a “demonstration that we won’t tolerate the Donovans approach any longer?” Lots of huffing and puffing, but the only action by Shell since then has all been of the sinister cowardly variety, via Shell in-house and external spooks.

UPDATE: WE WILL PUBLISH AN ARTICLE ABOUT SHELL INDUSTRIAL ESPIONAGE AT 7.01pm EDT TONIGHT/00.01  UK TIME ON 7 OCTOBER. and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia feature.
