Dear Dr Rivet -
1. According to the G1MRA - ignoring those who may have joined up this New Year - there are around 2500 paid-up members.
2. Only four friends have taken me up on my offer , as was expected, thus sharing in my criminal activities. However, you may sleep easy on my behalf, Sir, as any feelings of guilt on my part are way down my present list of priorities. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/whistling.gif
3. Please feel free to [try and] get me banned from this site and blacklisted within the world of the G1MRA. I'd hate to think that this takes you away from playing trains, so.....
4. To assist you in your efforts - I'm sure you know Mr Pulley's address, and also that of the G1MRA, but my local police force might present some difficulty, so here it is in full -
For the attention of Ms Julie Spence -
The Chief Constable
Cambridgeshire Constabulary Headquarters
Luckily they have a 24-hour reporting helpline, too, so the time difference won't matter. Five hours isn't it?
5. In a spirit of co-operation, which might serve to help me if and when the case comes to court, and to save you using your undoubtedly valuable time researching further ways and means of implementing the ban you seek, have you considered publicising the campaign by using T-shirts? If not, you really ARE missing out on this popular and fun way of bringing the attention of almost everybody to your cause. so please have a look at Berda, one of the leading T-shirt printers in the US. They have an excellent range of products, including pens and fun hats, too, and prices for having your message printed on their high-quality product are very reasonable - see http://www.berda.com
The use of only six letters - 'BAN TAC' - is both succinct and thrifty, although some might think that the T-shirt advertises a Vietnamese restaurant or vacation locale, rather than a demand to remove somebody from a website. It's a pity that DH is behind us, as a great publicity opportunity would have presented itself there.
6. And lastly, if you and just about anybody else has never made a photo-copy of an article in a magazine for a friend, or two, or even four, I will eat the keyboard in front of me with the sauce of your choice.
Your regret on my behalf is duly noted.
Have a nice day, Dr Rivet.
