Who remembers Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?
Didn't the supercomputer Deep Thought compute the answer to the question of life, the universe and everything as being 42.

Unfortunately when rounded up the answer was in fact 43.

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I agree that none of this is insurmountable. It takes an awareness through training and a willingness to comply. My concern is, given the revelations, can Chris Beach be trusted? It's been revealed on Twitter that he gained unauthorised access to private Twitter direct messages exchanged between Ni...

This link appears to have disappeared from Twitter & Google cache: https://twitter.com/SE23lifeChris/status/778308832200122368?s=20 Stuart Deleted only in the last few minutes - my earlier attempt a few minutes ago said I was blocked - the message now says it is deleted ! What did you uncover BN ?

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Good points BN - @moderators should note what actions they may have to take to ensure the forum is in compliance - but once more not necessarily insurmountable or even difficult. The point in principle of who might access your data is one for individual users to evaluate. I suspect each of us will h...

Re: Rolf Harris

He was my hero with his fast'n'furious sketching on BBC Children's Hour in 1950s. How the mighty have fallen. Stuart I know you will plead forgetfulness - thought it was the mid-to late sixties myself before he made his TV thingy work after his hit songs. Never get too close to your heroes - major ...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Here is a request to the @moderators on SE23.life in the form of an open - and honestly stated - appeal to them. It is known that at least some of you are reading this thread on this forum. There is also overlap present in that posters here are also members on SE23.life - please feel free to copy a...

I don't really want to comment, but will say that everything should be transparent. I agree with Michael's comments, and have the utmost respect for Rachael. I want SE23.life to have longevity and will do my best to support this as I feel it is a fantastic forum. Hello Pauline - good to see you act...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

So what are we saying? That the mods on SE23 Life locked down the thread solely on CB’s claim that the matter is now in police hands? If I were one of those mods, I’d want to see some documentary proof of the legal status of the complaint before taking this action. This is a serious matter. Fairly ...

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...

There is far too much potential for that thread to really go wrong. Though I do admit it is a shame that a number of contributors who contributed will now not be able too.

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I don’t think the SE23 mods are making the right noises at all. They are talking about Chris taking a ‘break’. He’ll be back and nothing will have changed. Moreover, no one is addressing Michael’s post stating that CB has been banned from other forums for sock puppetry. CB’s claims that this is a o...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

My last on this today - unless some other significant event occurs or fact emerges. In an announcement made on 15 July at approximately 13:30, Chris Beach has announced on SE23.life that he is stepping away from his SE23.life role as owner, administrator and moderator. Chris Beach states, "So I am t...
