Crocels, which is a multimedia education and community regeneration partnership based at the Institute of Life Sciences within Swansea University, has sought to clarify allegations made by notorious Internet abuser, Paul Z Myers, and his followers.
Mark Beech, who is Crocels’s Personnel, Strategy and Quality Officer, has said that the false allegations that Crocels has no associations with Swansea University have come about because of a misunderstanding of its relationship with the government-funded Institute of Life Sciences programmed it runs. “Crocels entered into a contract with Swansea University on 13 July 2010 to be part of its Institute of Life Sciences programme, with the intention we become resident there full time when our medical products are on the market,” he said. “The allegations of Paul Z Myers and his sick website followers who targeted our director, Jonathan Bishop, that he made up such an association because we are not on the Institute of Life Science’s website is totally false, as we will be on there when we become full tenants.”
Beech sought to clarify difficulties Crocels was currently having with Swansea University. “Since our director, Jonathan Bishop, announced he will be standing for election against Mike Day, who is the commercial manager of the Institute of Life Sciences, we have had problems,” he said. “Most recently this occurred when Mike Day refused to let Jonathan Bishop, who is an Internet trolling expert, be interviewed by Sky News when the story of Swansea University student, Liam Stacey, broke.
“Crocels has been running the Trolling Academy since 21 October 2011 and we have only had problems with Swansea University directly, and not just Cllr Mike Day, since the news broke.
“We are currently in the process of taking legal advice, so it would be inappropriate to comment further other than to say we expect these issues to be resolved.”
Paul Z Myers is a notorious abuser of people who share different beliefs to him. On one occasion he desecrated the Qu’ran and posted it to his website.

Peh Ng is a senior member of staff at the University of Minnesota Morris and defended Myers’s supposed right to allow false allegations to be made. “I have no jurisdiction over what Paul Myers wrote on his own personal blog,” they said. “Myers’ blog does NOT reside on university property and has no affiliation with the university.“
