Death threats against me and my father by Vivek Iyer of London – for the public record.
Some time ago a person by name of Vivek Iyer (an author) came into my life, by first providing comments on my draft manuscript, DOF. Initially he seemed OK, and I even recommended to FTI that he be considered as a Speakers Panelist for FTI. FTI agreed to my request and we even inducted him with a proper web page on FTI's website.
But I soon found that this person was a a foul-mouthed racist who did not discuss issues, but kept spewing hatred against individuals. Entirely unsuitable person for FTI to associate with. I therefore withdrew my recommendation to FTI to have him on our Speakers Panel (click for larger image).
Things became so bad in violent communication style that for the past two years any email he may try to send is automatically deleted. I don't get to see it at all.
Today, unfortunately, he has once again surfaced, this time with death threats on my blog through the comments section.
Consistent with my policy of publishing all death threats and IP addresses, I'm now posting his comments (which are truly foul, so I will caution you against reading them). I will send this blog post to London Police for their investigation and action, if any. He has also threatened violence against my father, but I'll let that pass for now.
He lives in London, so that's where the Police should get involved.
I've retained these comments in my "trash" folder for any Police scrutiny, but will – depending on the nature of any further comments he may make – mark his future comments on my blog to spam. I have no desire to spend time thinking or discussing this person.
Vivek attended the London School of Economics (https://plus.google.com/111957506992849215458/posts). So he must have deteriorated into this frothing, blathering, ranting, jabbering unstable confused mess subsequently. All very sad.
His being a person of Indian origin, I might have been concerned about his health and informed London Psychiatric Services (or some such agency) to assist him privately. But he happens to be one of the most intelligent persons I've come across and so I take his death threats very seriously. An evil mind without intellectual capacity can be safely ignored. An evil mind with intellectual capacity should prudently be cause for at least some concern.

== I couldn't lodge a proper complaint through any readily found method on London Metropolitan Police website, so I've sent info through the feedback portal. This is the receipt:
