A member of the public discussion facebook group posts to show that asking RCL questions via their facebook page results in the question being deleted and a ban from posting

I posted a comment today on RCLs page asking as it's 1 month to go would there next update be something like a pallet of vega's, box art or a release date..

And had post removed within 2 hours and blocked from posting.

Obviously asking a legitimate question like the above is now considered trolling, bit like how we harass the store staff by given them money and expecting something petty like goods received.

A tweet from Twitter user The Whinja Ninja is reposted for the third time after RCL attempt to censor the internet yet again. The tweet shows Suzanne Martin with a bucket of KFC and the words "liar" and "thief" on the sides.

Two articles appear on the Real Crooks blog:

  1. Quotes about David Neil Laurence Levy - Self Proclaimed Genius?
  2. Ironic Quotes made by David Levy about others – mirroring his own actions, or supporting vile views?

Sunday 11th March, 2018

A new article appears on the Real Crooks blog, this time called David Neil Laurence Levy - Supports Paedophiles? Condones the use of child sex robots? The article contains RCL director David Levy's failed attempts at multiple sex robot conferences including being thrown out of Malaysia by the chief of police and threatened with arrest if he persisted and having to move the UK convention to a secret location after claiming he was in danger by terrorists. The article also contains links to various articles where David Levy supports giving paedophiles access to child sex robots.

Gareth Corfield publishes an article called Your manhood is safe, judge tells ZX Spectrum reboot boss. The article details David Levy losing his appeal against the court case he lost after a no-show in court using the excuse that trolls were going to chop his cock off. Highlights from the article:

  • Ailing ZX Spectrum reboot firm Retro Computers Ltd has had its appeal against a county court judgment in Luton, UK rejected, with the judge telling chairman Dr David Levy that his no-show in the dock over troll fears was unfounded.
  • In a ruling last week, Senior Circuit Judge Melissa Clarke refused permission for Levy, acting on behalf of RCL, to appeal against the judgment, which ordered RCL to refund aggrieved customer Rob Morton who had paid money on crowd funding site Indiegogo to reserve an RCL-made gaming device in February 2016.
  • Summarily dismissing RCL's appeal on Wednesday, 7 March, Judge Clarke noted in a written ruling that Levy had "failed to attend the trial....the application is totally without merit and the appellant may not request the decision to refuse permission to appeal to be reconsidered at a hearing."
  • In court filings where Levy tried to excuse himself for not attending the original county court hearing in Luton in Bedfordshire – north-northwest of London – he had quoted a pseudonymous Twitter account, claiming the operator of it had threatened to have his "cock chopped off".
  • In fact the tweet in question was part of a surreal conversation about Levy and the court case.
  • Circuit Judge Clarke ruled: "The appellant's concern for their own safety should not prevent them from attending trial in a court protected by security and there is in any event no evidence they were in threat of physical danger."

Former backer Rob Morton posts on the public discussion facebook group to say that RCL have paid the remaining £429 that he was awarded by the court:

Hi Everyone. I'd like to report that, following the loss of Levy's appeal against the verdict of my Small Claims Court case, RCL have paid up in full!  :D So, while I'm going to continue to monitor this situation, contribute to this group and support my fellow backers when possible, my personal involvement with RCL is, hopefully, at an end. :D I hope this news encourages others to seek the refunds they deserve.

I've just sent RCL the following e-mail:

Mr David Levy, Director
Retro Computers Limited
5 Technology Park
Colindeep Lane, Colindale
London, NW9 6BX

RE: Small Claims Track case D8QZ7X6E

Dear Mr Levy,

Thank you for settling the outstanding payment required after losing your appeal against the decision in my favour. I can now confirm that I have received £584 from you, made up of two separate amounts: £155 on the 30th January 2018 and £429 on the 14th March 2018.

Please note that I shall be following your personal and company announcements very carefully to ensure that should you discuss this case at any point, you do not say, state, write or imply anything that is untrue, unfair, derogatory or libellous against me. You have lost this case, and have no further right to appeal. You settled this case fully after your defence was carefully considered by the court. You chose not to attend the hearing for reasons the appeal judge deemed wholly without merit. You lost the case because, as the judge stated, you failed to adhere to the Consumer Rights Act 2015 after establishing a formal contract of sale with me. Please be advised that should you indicate you lost for any other reason, such a statement would be false.

Should you lie or otherwise obfuscate the truth about this case, I will consider that a serious slight on my personality and good character, and will not hesitate to take additional legal action against you personally. The courts take a dim view of such behaviour and I am sure you would not wish to find yourself further indebted to me.

If you wish to write a press release about your company’s absolute loss in court, I would be more than happy to review it prior to publication should you wish to ensure you are not at risk of such legal action as referred to above.

Thank you once again for settling your outstanding debt to me; let us hope that you do not accrue any further such costs.

Yours sincerely,

Rob Morton

We reach the end as Indiegogo threaten to send in the debt collectors.

More resounding and easily refutable bullshit comes from the mouths of RCL mere moments after they lose another court case.
