I am personally gutted he has locked down his account... It was like a watching a really bad episode of Jeremy Kyle when you know you shouldn't watch but you have to.... then you end up wondering are these real people, where do they live and how do the producers find them?... Southport it would seem...

Having read a little of the Twitter posts, by 'Woody', - thanks B - I was extremely disappointing - and sad. How utterly stupid and childish the posts were. How much damage this individual has caused. How insulting he is to well meaning individuals. When he has contributed.... what exactly....? Nothing, as far I I can see.

But such is life in the Internet Age. Reduced to childish tirades, by people who clearly have a very high opinion of themselves - and little regard for anyone else.

The aim, surely, is to get K7 finished, in a fully runable condition, and with a working agreement between the BBP & the Ruskin Museum. Thats it.

No more toys need to thrown, or feet stamped. That would be childish.

Someone who insists they're right despite clear evidence they are wrong, is a mumpsimus (from the 16th century).

Well, in the same century, 'trumpery' described something 'of little or no value; trifling, paltry, insignificant; worthless, rubbishy, trashy'.

Staggering that Woody, Badgers 1,2&3, Norwood was given free rein to do so much damage to Gina and the Campbell's reputation, he's pretty much trashed it since he arrived on the scene five minutes ago. You would imagine that they would normally seek to put as much distance as possible between themselves and someone like that so maybe they didn't know what he was getting up to after dark. Fair to say that 'mumpsimus' is the same as Type III.

For the Badgers, Norwoods and Woodys of this world, I propose an extended class - Type III bis - which translates as double Type III ...

Just think, if there was a Nobel prize for jaw-dropping stupidity we might have been in the presence of greatness.

I managed to read through most before it was locked out, all screen grabbed and IP harvested.

As funny as it was to read, I am genuinely concerned at the amount of time he spends monitoring everything that is said and done here, it is exceptionally unhealthy. I also noted the amount of libel which I have documented as a matter of course as we move forward.


But to clear up an issue he raised regarding myself, I didn’t say anything Latin ? That was Thunderer...you need to read things properly rather than skim reading.

I do however speak Italian quite well and I am teaching myself German which is far more difficult, however, I enjoy the challenge, my son is also helping me along with Russian.

I may be a thick dum dum as you state, but I managed to go to university and pass my exams in physics and maths so I guess someone somewhere may disagree with you, hey ho.... also I am not an inspector, I work for a living ! You need to chill out a bit.

Regarding the number plate, you may want to make it legal before heading out onto the roads, the font, border and screws all render it illegal, being a private plate if someone makes a complaint to DVLA they will revoke your right to display it as you don’t own the plate, only the right to display it.

To be clear it won’t be me that reports you as I am not the petty sort, however, you have been so derogatory about people on a global scale no less with your hate speech so you may want to sort it ASAP.

Stay safe on that bike, especially when carrying precious cargo on the back, it’s better to be late in this life than early into the next.

I bid you peace, good health and safe riding !
Apologies to admin for this off-topic break, but it needs to be said.

I have done and I have said many things in my life and I have taken the blame for a lot of things too, but I point blank refuse to have deflected on to me something that I never wrote,, but merely quoted.

If it had not have been written, I would not have found it humorous or quoted it.

As for latin, I do not speak it nor understand it, so used google to translate it to enlish, which is when I found it humorous and apt at the time, hence why I quoted it for that very reason.
