It was me, just winding Nobby up and making him look like the idiot he is.

Unfortunately he did an ISP check and found it was me, then put 2 & 2 together and realised it was a wind up. Then he posted the comment that he realised I was being sarcastic.

I've earned a lifetime ban for my efforts though :thumbsup:

if it was im sure he will say hello on here soon. Although he did tell me after his deletion from F-Chat that he really didnt want to use internet forums at all. I think it was after someone posted loads of private details of his when pretending to be him on Lee's site.

Hope he is back though ! Say hi if its you Reggie !!!!

Only the mods/admins can see his IP address on the forum. However it's a pretty trivial task to change the IP address that is visible to vBulletin/other websites, so it's not a watertight proof of identity.

Far better to be subtle and let him hang himself, by letting him type his usual stupid comments.

Of course it does no harm to give him the occasional gentle nudge to get him going ;) Even better when he doesn't know what's happening until afterwards ;)

Until I read the statistics I had actually wrongly believed the UK section had gone dead quiet. (I've been reading here for ages but not posted until this week.)

It's a MUCH nicer place here now

Rob's Reply:

I think you are mostly right , although we do have many good new users posting, it is obvious our overall post count is down this week. Within weeks post counts should approach normal as good new users are welcome and join long-time active users that truly appreciate FerrariChat.com and want to be a positive user of our community.

From the stats you can just see this impact has been insignificant on the overall community. Although the current amount of activity is what users experienced a couple years ago normally, without making statements about quality vs. quantity I know many are anxious for the recent activity to return minus a few trouble makers.

Not!


I must be getting soft in my old age then :) I do feel sorry for him, as it couldn't have been pleasant for him - even though he brought it on himself.

Anyway, it's over and done with now. Hopefully, Rob will learn something from this experience. I sincerely hope he does.
