Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

This link appears to have disappeared from Twitter & Google cache: https://twitter.com/SE23lifeChris/status/778308832200122368?s=20 If its stuff from CB that might not reflect him in the finest light - don't worry. I have a collection direct from him in my mail inbox. If the mods can restore trust i...

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. Indeed,...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

The sender of the email in question would be able to easily confirm if she is never contacted by the police. The SE26 Life post states clearly that it is the email being investigated, which implies that CB has made a complaint. Maybe that is as far as it has gone so far, rather than being confirmed...

Re: Rolf Harris

Yes Rolf was used by various Sydenham organisations in publicity stunts. I have some 10x8 b/w shots of Rolf presenting prizes to (young) children here in Sydenham. Some local people are recognisable so I'm not going to share them here or anywhere. Can't force myself to destroy them though. He lived ...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I do wonder about this as it would mean that the admin of SE23.com, i.e. the forum that banned CB and triggered the creation of the .life one, would have the last laugh? Folks, especially the SE23.life mods might read the old se23.com - an exile from the north speaks out . That, I believe, led to t...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Agreed. Fake Twitter ID is one thing, and if what he says is true then it's understandable, but all the selected follows then promoting it all over the .life site to give it credence makes it look much more like a calculated move. Forums will always have bad boys doing this. That's why they have ad...

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

I won't comment on the specifics of the park except to say there must be a gain with, presumably, with greater access to areas where high speed golf balls were a major hazard. We are an island. Unguarded deep water surrounds us like it or not, rivers rush by. We have seen many tragedies (Camber Sand...

My preference lie with virtual beer as opposed the valium variety.
Nope, I'm shocked you have sunk so low. Virtual Valium from drinking REAL Beer is the proper answer. Try it!

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

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. That's why I always reach for my virtual valium when I see another outburst or whatever. ...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

So what makes one a Chris Beach target? Admin and Stuart is obvious, dirty tactics to bring down the competition I assume. It's more complicated than that. I wasn't the competition as CB knew at the time, I was supportive of se23.life and CB was always quite kind to me - I do keep his correspondenc...

Re: Planning Watch [w/b 08/07/2019]

The most visible application this week is probably the last but one. Replacement of shopfront for Snappy Snaps @ 29 Sydenham Road. Personally I thought it rather eye catching in a nice way. Nice people inside too.

Yep looks like the cat caught something that bit back rather harder than expected. In which case who is the victim?

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

which is what happened here on STF recently with that Lawrie Park sock puppet that got weeded out, No - I think he just beat a speedy retreat when he was challenged. This current business strikes me as having an element of catfishing to it, I had to look catfishing up! [sad]. I doubt there is a rom...

I'm greatly in favour of anonymised monikers. Mine is a compromise - identifiable by people who know me in real life but totally generic if you are on a Google hunt.

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

What a sad, sorry (and rather confusing!) state of affairs. But also an opportunity. Sockpuppetry - or suspected sockpuppetry - is toxic to good open community discussion. Let's hope the mods can dig down, root it out and rebuild the trust all good forums need. It would be good to be able to return...
