Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

It’s been mentioned that this could make a daytime TV soap or perhaps a book. I understand that the following working titles are already in development. Duncombe Hill Street Blues Names under the Hammer Sunset Beach (Bad) Neighbours The Great Flava Bakeoff Pointless The Clangers Some potential them...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

There is now an ongoing police investigation into the email received and therefore this topic will need to be temporarily closed to further posts to avoid prejudicing a jury should the case make it to trial. If you see people commenting about this matter elsewhere, please show them the following go...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Definition of doxxing: "search for and publish private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the Internet, typically with malicious intent." Who published the private information on the internet? Is it a crime to doxx yourself? Report yourself to police for doxxing yourself?...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

The SE26 Life post states clearly that it is the email being investigated, which implies that CB has made a complaint. Yes I picked up on that. I also wondered whether this was an indirect attempt to stop discussion on this thread: If you see people commenting about this matter elsewhere, please sh...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Is the revealing the name of the street someone lives doxxing? Sending a private email with the name of the street someone lives on to said person who lives on the street?

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I would imagine that if it is genuinely in the hands of the police, that a formal request will be received to remove any information which may prejudice and investigation. Guess we will have to wait and see. I wonder also, if this is being looked into, if others will be contacted about their encoun...

Interesting development. *** Moderator update *** Please note that whilst this update will show as from Chris, it is from the moderator team editing the original message. We’ve been informed this matter is now being formerly investigated by the police and as such, all information in this thread has...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I learned a lot in my time at SE23life. If nothing else I have a plethora of material for my next novel... It must surely be a fascinating insight into human behaviour. Great work experience for psychology students. I think it comes under the auspices of: power corrupts, absolute power corrupts abs...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I’ve seen comments here about the original SE23life team enabling him. I became a mod there shortly after it started. I thought long and hard about it and decided it would be a noble experiment to see if I could work with someone I fundamentally disagree with. I was aware all along that I was on th...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

The problem here is its the owner himself who is judge and jury over his own actions (and generally we always observe our own actions over others in a better light). it is the trust in the person who guards us against protagonists has been compromised and with that trust evaporates. Or does for som...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

A reminder of this paragraph from his Personal Introduction on SE26.life (cough cough) "You may know me from my other forum SE23.life, or from my slightly inflammatory posts in other forums. Whilst I have strong views, I can (usually) back them up with evidence, and always represent myself by my rea...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I will never return. Chris will never cede control of the forum to anyone else. And why should he? He owns it. The conventions of what an admin should be, how they should behave are no more than that: conventions. There’s no law that says he can’t do what he’s doing. All we can do is walk away when...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

what can the remaining team do to restore confidence? What needs to be done before me (and other self-exiles) feel confident about returning? Well, I see now that, even in Chris' supposed absence, the moderation team is seeking to remove a thread that has become problematic for Chris, but were happ...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

then promoting it all over the .life site to give it credence makes it look much more like a calculated move. In addition, lying outright about Flava Baker to his own community on his own forum after the event, not once but twice https://se23.life/t/threats-cyber-stalking-and-lost-pets-the-life-of-...

formed part of a plan to conspire to entrap another member of our community and then to report that community member to the police. Yes, This doesn't feel like a mere human mistake, not designed to harm anyone (to paraphrase from his last post on SE23.Life). Rather it feels very calculated, conspir...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I see he's now taking a step back from moderation duties. An admirable move in the circumstances, credit where credit is due. Am I right in understanding, however, that he is the actual owner of the forum and will still thereby have access to privileges arising from that position? With the damage to...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I see he's now been asked directly whether he's behind Flava Baker. I imagine whether he is Flava Baker or not he will issue a denial, but IF he is behind it then he may be wise to exercise some caution. If I was the person who'd sent the email, being thrown to the wolves and with a large bunch of f...

Careful BN. Part of his playbook appears to involve deliberately trying to wind people up so they will explode and can then be painted as the aggressor and him the victim. I think you've seen something of that.
I hear you. So where does one get some of this virtual valium? :D
