    See, this is Rick Chasey's brigade. Probably clever enough and has access to create a new user and back date the date of joining. Therefore, we can presume that date's are immaterial here.
    It would make perfect sense that MM with his ridiculously low cadence is one of them. Perhaps there are multiple accounts in the same vein.

  • mf reckons its all of them. individually they aren't clever or witty enough to carry it off. even collectively they aren't very witty.

    And all this time there's me thinking the people listed as being at the gathering were just common or garden bellends. I have done them an injustice...

    Why have you resurrected a post from two years ago?

    I suspect it was a joke by Ridgerider as you may note that much of the post is slightly absurd.

    Roger, I respect your palmares, but I suspect that you might be an imposter.

    Glad I missed that little soirée.
    Looks like a load of laughs missed it too.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Well, I think the novelty for them would have worn off by now but it hasn't (if it is true). I think it's quite hypocritical of the PC brigade to do such a thing.

    Certain suspects are so adamant in their view(s), that it is possible, it has put people off the forum or detracts from reasonable discussion.
    Are they having a laugh at other people's expense?
    Multiple accounts are forbidden - one protagonist is a mod. Does he endorse such action or at least by not condemning it, allows this activity to happen? Or worse, is actively involved?

    If true then it's not good, but possibly you are reading too much into a report of a beer-fuelled nonsense discussion.

    But does it really matter? If you're not being rude then you can't be reported.

    If someone is deliberately being antagonistic then be a grown up and ignore them?

    It sounds like a bit of a childish game but hardly worth getting up in arms about l

    Well as they were talking about it having been a success yes.

    What do you believe, they imagined having done it?
