This is actually somewhat off-topic. There's no article about Altaf Nazerali on Wikipedia, and the dispute between Nazerali and DeepCapture.com (i.e., Mr. Byrne and Mark Mitchell) doesn't really bear any relevance to Wikipedia that I can determine.

However, at the risk of becoming a target myself, there's something suspicious (to me, anyway) about a shadowy billionaire international financier with substantial ties to the Middle East going to the extent of starting multiple websites exclusively devoted to claiming that he's a totally-innocent victim of internet defamation, all of which focus on the message "It could happen to you." Uh, not so Mr. Nazerali; these things don't happen to just anybody, and in fact they're happening to "you" because you're a shadowy billionaire international financier with substantial ties to the Middle East.

Frankly, the guy should count himself lucky that there isn't a Wikipedia article on him - yet. If he continues in this vein there probably will be, and that will just make things much worse for him, because the #1 Google result on his name will be a web-page over which he has practically no control whatsoever, unlike the ones his PR guys have been setting up.
