Marc Stephens is a man who seems to enjoy threatening people who criticize the Burzynski Clinic in Houston, TX. This includes a 17-year-old boy in England, Rhys Morgan, whose discussions of the Burzynski Clinic's methods resulted in Marc Stephens sending him multiple threatening e-mails, one of which included a Google Maps satellite image of Mr. Morgan's house.
Marc is also fond of using the phrase GOVERN YOURSELF ACCORDINGLY-- italicization is mine, capitalization is his. How fucking idiotic is that, I ask you?
Not only that, but Mr. Stephens seems to enjoy threatening people who criticize his decision to threaten people who criticize the Burzynski Clinic. I guess, as Maslow said, when the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. Analogously, when you're batshit fucking loco, every problem needs you to contact people to demonstrate your complete fucking lack of contact with reality.
To let you know how far this has gone, Mr. Stephens has gone so far as to lecture Kenneth White, a respected lawyer with a long history of successful First Amendment litigation, on the definition of the word "libel". It should be noted that Mr. Stephens has not definitively answered the question of whether or not he is a lawyer, despite being asked on multiple occasions. Marc has also sent e-mails that have caused at least one recipient to feel that Marc was threatening his family.
In short, Marc Stephens is an unhinged, bullying, batshit-fucking-loco crazy man who spends his time threatening the people who take the time to point out his bug-nutty behavior.
