Re: Fatal Accident Outside Catford Station

Well argued Stuart. I do hope you are right. Observationaly however I still feel the frequency of occasions where we see that category of behaviour that you describe as stupid is too great. Are those instances a result of people being blinded by the need to make constant progress and therefore disre...

Re: Fatal Accident Outside Catford Station

I note the linked article says, or at least implies, that the lorry driver didn't stop immediately. It makes me wonder if he even knew, if it happened in his blind spot (or one of them). I have seen cycles mount the pavement specifically to give lorries a wide berth which is not good if pedestrians...

Re: What’s going on at x?

... That would, in the past, been the natural domain of the Sydenham Society. The problem is, of recent years, SydSoc has been evolving into a more partisan organisation - hence less able to reflect the views of the broader community. We are a bit stuck there.

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I will always be proud of the work I did as a moderator on the SE23Life forum. I still believe the model the early mod team developed is one of the best out there for a friendly and inclusive forum. My association with CB is in that context and I will never be ashamed of that. Absolutely and your p...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

The mod team deserve a lot of praise, because modding comes at a personal cost. Every mod intervention potentially sours a moderator’s relationship with a community member. But it’s absolutely vital to moderate a community in order to keep it positive and constructive. Some ad-hominem threads of ot...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Can we take this as your unambiguous approval for the reinstatement of all posts on that thread but with the thread remaining closed? Yes Now the devil is in the detail. Will Chris permit this to happen and/or will the mods have reservations of the gravity and style observed by Michael. However, i ...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Success should have been complete with all that support and goodwill. Where did it all go wrong? How come this thread has now eclipsed the old "Exile from the North" critique of SE23.COM in both length and veracity? Is the cause all the people here or the one person there? As I keep repeating, to l...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Thank you. In the current mood of unblocking, my thousand year ban on SE23 and SE26 was set to zero a few months ago and then some individual promptly re-imposed a ten year ban. Interestingly I still have a thousand year ban on SE6. Show some benevolence - unblock members of our communities on all ...

Re: PX56 GFV Car Thieves' registration number

Increasing number of thefts of this type being reported on a lot of media.

My neighbour's car was "done" a few weeks ago.

Is there a valid defence if you accidentally run over the b*ggers legs as they stick out from the car they are stealing from?

Anyone?

Aha, JGD but given his credibility and reputation i'd rather be demonised by Mr Beach than be lionised. So no probs there :)

Stuart
You have more than once reminded me that I should recognise the benefits of the positions we find ourselves in.

Thank you.

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Moderated or un-moderated, Chris's mindset, based on his affliction does not allow him to cease and desist from his execrable and repetitious behaviours. His mods on .life seem disinclined to exercise any modicum of moderation on his behaviours. In such events of significant failure, it would be rea...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I have seen (too) many examples of his "automatic" messages.

They are generated by CB and the wording varies too much for them to be system generated.

Consistency in his fibbing little mind is not his forte.
