You need proper legal advice for that one.

 

Madden is a sole trader. He trades as "Exacta Weather", but his Exacta Weather isn't registered at Company's House, so it's not a proper company. If you buy his 'forecasts', the Paypal account is registered to James Madden, not Exacta Weather. Therefore you'd be perfectly ok using that domain name and there'd be nothing he could do about it. Indeed, www.exactaweather.co.uk is already registered by the man who runs the 'Exacta Weather - The truth behind the headlines' Facebook Pages, because Madden was too slow (dim?) to secure this domain as well as the .com one he uses for his website, even though he operates in the UK. 

 

Personally, i'd steer clear of his name as it's now tarnished along with his reputation.

The .org one seems to be available so I would probably use that. I think at worst he would just tell me to take it down and not really have to a leg to stand on. The only sticking point is I would have to put a moderate amount of work in when I am pushed for time at the moment. The end result would probably just be causing some annoyance to Madden, or at best I would sell him the domain and take the site down for the right amount.

Why do you need to use that name exactly?

I can't think of any other way of doing something very small that would go some way to help highlight what he does and create a bit of mischief at the same time. It's just got my back up a little the other day when once again my grandparents who are in the 80s take what is written as the absolute truth (again).

Did anyone watch Wild Weather with Richard Hammond on BBC one last night?  A fascinating insight into the dynamics of wind where Richard Hammond visits the Wind Engineering, Energy and Environment Research Institute in Canada to see the worlds first hexagonal wind tunnel that can simulate different wind conditions such as tornadoes with help from its 106 massive fans.

Yes, looks to be an interesting series. I was quite jealous when he was getting blown about on the observatory on Mt Washington.

In the short term they are sticking to Artic winds and 8 inches of snow by the weekend

UK And World Set For Hottest Year On Record

 

This year is on course to be the hottest on record both for the UK and globally, with human impact the likely cause, say experts. The UK's mean temperature from the beginning of January to late November is 1.6C above the long-term average, making it the warmest in records dating back to 1910, according to the Met Office, although a cold December could change this. This year is also set to be one of the warmest on record in the Central England Temperature series, which stretches back to 1659 and is the longest instrumental temperature series in the world.

 

Around the world, the year is set to be one of the hottest, with global temperatures around 0.57C above the long-term average of 14C from January to October, just ahead of the previous record set in 2010 of 0.56C. If November and December follow suit, 2014 is likely to be the hottest year on record, ahead of 2010, 2005 and 1998, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) has said. The Met Office has cautioned against placing too much emphasis on a single record temperature and long-term climate change.

I get an old paper every couple of weeks from a relative to use as a liner in the bird cage, basically he covers their crap with his.

I think the Express do with snow to older people, what the Daily Mail do to UKIP voters.

 

APOLCALYPTIC snow to hit the UK and it will be here for 10 YEARS!

15 MILLION immigrants to arrive in the UK TOMORROW and they'll be living in YOUR HOUSE!

 

Same mass hysteria effect.

It's tempting to take a lot of the Daily Express headlines about snow and ice with a pinch of salt.

Only there's usually very little need for any salt at all

from teh weekend, headline 

UK weather: 'Horrendous' conditions of snow and ice expected as weather warnings issued for much of UK

 

so a Met office spokesperson told their sister paper "The worst effected region will be Scotland, where “across the tops of the Scottish mountains it will be pretty horrendous,†a spokesperson told the Evening Standard.
