The foul-mouthed Liam Scheff

Liam Scheff House of Numbers

About a month ago I published part 5 of my mini series debunking the AIDS denialist film House of Numers. In this video I was critiquing a short one minute clip where Liam Scheff was claiming that the paper 'Heterosexual Transmission of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in Northern California: Results from a Ten-year Study'  was proof that HIV can't be transmitted through Heterosexual sex. Liam was not very happy with my video, and to silence my criticism, he filed a false DMCA against it, but removed it a few days later - presumably so his friends Martin Penny and the people at Knollege Matters LLC could file theirs. Over the next two weeks Liam constantly spammed my Facebook page with insults and legal threats. Below are snippets of just some of what he published which I think give a fair represention of what kind of person Liam is.

  • Hey deathhead. How long before your groomers start writing pieces for you - that you publish? Brian Deere, Seth Kalichman, John Moore. You meet any of these deathheads yet? Their arms way up your arse, princess?
  • Myles, you look really small. Is that where your hatred comes from? I'm not picking on you, I'm just asking.
  • Listen - about that study that you misunderstood because you're retarded
  • I will retract my claim against you for stealing. You're a cunt, but that's your business.
  • Okay? Little bitch? Hopefully you'll stop whining and crying soon and get back to lying and bitching. And, yeah, I'm really glad to meet you - because you're such just excellent fodder, and people are going to love watching you squirm.
  • Every week we'll be visiting Myles to see what the little dumpster is puking out. He's so entertaining, I don't know how I missed it. It's like the nazis hired Michael Sheen to write propaganda for them.
  • I'm older than you are, so I'm not familiar with the spoiled little arrogant entitled destroy-everything-and-care-about-nothing school of thought that seems to be de rigeur among yourself and your horrible, trashy, servile fans...
  • Muthufuckahh!
  • I don't think it was false if it was upheld. And you can reply, contest it, and claim fair use. You just have to make the argument, I believe, which you've decided you won't do, because you have to reveal who you really are in print. Who your channel belongs to, who runs it, and maybe who owns you.
  • You're free to argue with me, or anyone. But you're libeling, slandering, and lying.
  • Thanks - you could have just asked to use some of the video. I would have said no, because it's not for 'educational' purposes. You're doing propaganda.
  • And what about those statistics from the 'retrospective' bit that Myles is so hard for? I mean... .0009%. Nine out of 10,000 good, hard screws with an 'hiv positive'
  • He's a shill. He's paid. He's got his day job, and someone thought he'd be a good front for the "pro-science" crowd, which is just a pro-disinfo arm of the petrol/pharma conglomerate.

And when he is not insulting me online he is calling for others to do so.

Liam ScheffWhat a nice man

  1. “WTF” is the only intelligible response I have to this.

  2. It’s quite clear when the misinformed and ignorant hear something their anti-science doctrine doesn’t conform to, they go on a wild rampage, throwing petty personal insults at who ever challenges them. This is simply how their feeble minds work.
    They just want to provoke a response out of you when they file false DMCAs, just for the opportunity to have a one-sided, incoherent screaming match, and that’s exactly how it seems when reading Liams vulgar and incredulous comments. But I commend you for your level headedness. It’s all too easy to get so fed up and let them know how you really feel, but it’s wiser to sort this out above-board and get them to reconsider who they falsely target in future.

  3. It’s ironic he says you’re “libeling” him, as he libels you.

  4. What a classy gentleman that Mr. Scheff is. Previously I’d thought House of Numbers was stupid, dangerous nonsense, but you can’t argue with invective like that. He’s got me convinced now, that’s for sure.

  5. He said you ignored his invitation to debate him publicly, and uses the fact you didn’t respond as a reason to insult you?

    You can tell this guy has issues, seeing as he feels the need to lash out. He can criticise your approach, say you’re wrong or ignore your claims, that’s okay – that’s part of what getting to the truth of something is about.

    But insulting you? It just makes him seem desperate, lashing out, when someone disagrees with his worldview.

  8. I never even attempted to interact with him when he was spamming your group. I could tell from the first couple of posts what type of person he was and that any type of reasoning with him would be useless. The only time he actually calmed down was when someone posted that screen shot above of him telling his followers to harass you.

    I do love how these people who promote such bizarre nonsense always end up showing themselves to be lying, slimy and borderline psychotic when they try to interact.

    GG Liam, GG.
