Dear oh dear, it would be funny if it wasn't so tragic.

That someone could be reduced to such ineffectual mad trolling and barking is really sad.

I wouldn't waste time wondering who any of them are. 

Trolling using multiple personas is the www equivalent of using inflatable tanks or a pufferfish inflating itself to look bigger than it really is and when one person flits between multiple web personas to 'surround' and gang-bang their 'nemesis' their state of mind is probably such that they are not going to write anything credible, convincing or trustworthy.

Absolutely, bit like Mellon and Ben Reid on this site - not sure exactly who they are and regularly lacking the balls to say what they think under their own name.

I nearly walked on; but it is fair to say that Mellon has been quite open about the fact he is Ben Reid. He even came right out and stated it a few months ago when similarly challenged.

The simple rule of thumb I follow is that if you wouldn't say it in Public with everyone knowing who you are, then don't type it into a forum.

I would generally agree Keith... but for the fact that I've spoken to employees of SBC who say that they would never dare express an opinion (however reasonable or gently expressed) which might run contrary to a policy promoted by the council, for fear it would have 'bad consequences for their future job security'.

I once publicly complained about an aspect of SBC service under my own name in the Adver - and one of your council officers found out who my employer was, and told them that as a result of my criticism, they were going to cancel a lucrative service contract with them. (I wasn't speaking for my employer - nor was I involved in the supply of the service)

After that point, I realised that the protection of anonymity was fully justified!

Up The Crossing, do you think Bobby Wright is a Toxic Twat... or are they the sort of person you'd like to look at in the mirror?  :wink:

Sadly, Bobby Wright appears to me to be a person with political thoughts on his mind, therefore no more helpful to the people of Swindon than any of the political bods who have put themselves up in the May elections.
Not sure if you are suggesting I might be a toxic twat or even Bobby Wright, but I can assure you, i'm neither of these, I just fail to understand the constant need for politics on all sides to spew over into the most important thing, that of making Swindon a better place now and in the future. From what I have seen in this town over the last 6 decades that I have lived here, they all promise the earth and deliver little.

Those, sadly, are very wise words  :'(

As for Ben, hmmm. I think he went a little too far with his winding up of people as The Mellon, but I think as noted by Keith, he recognised that and that's why he's 'outed' himself.

I think that anyone with a modicum of English comprehension knows that Ben Reid was heavily involved in "The Hanging Gardens of Reidom" and therefore exactly who he and The Mellon are.  Up the Crossing and bobbie wright are carrying out a pathetic, unintelligent anti TS / free speech campaign ahead of the elections. They are both true Muppets whose misplaced loyalty is being used by others.

Up the Crossing, try looking around you, thinking and then offer an opinion.

Sorry,  where is the pathetic, unintelligent anti TS / free speech campaign from me?

My opinion is, I've no misplaced loyalty,  I have none, the whole political spectrum in Swindon is full of guff and meaningless promises..

"It's more than sad. That is one seriously toxic individual"

He's only toxic to others that want him to be, if his mission in life is to be that unpleasant, he will be unpleasant about anything that others hold dear, I would suspect that he is a magnificent putter-downer of everything and everyone and therefore not popular in any circle in which he moves. Still someone must love him.

Keith: Nearly walked past - blimey you fairly jumped out of the hedgerow that time!

I know that some people are overly worried and concerned about who is who on TS, I also worry as to why they should be so concerned and worry about the influence they have over people's jobs. (I could say more here, but I'm worried the effect of what happens is I do)  Maybe it's about time some TS'r with the time did a little SWOT analysis to being a contributor.

AS to my 'cover' I found it very useful at first - but by now most people know who I am and in fact I seem to be being called Muggins, more than my name now, I certainly refer to myself as it mroe and more often.

For over 30 years of community stuff, when I want to say something to someone I have to think very carefully about what's going on with them personally, nothing to be gained by screwing someone into the ground who is already suffering with all sorts or undermining the importance of a councillor in a meeting etc.  On here, we come to it equal - I don't know most of the people personally, don't have to deal with them outside of these pages.

Can you imagine TS'rs turning up at the SSP Conference and having their say there?
Don't worry it will ever happens they are far too carefully managed. Mellon, bless him for his youth!, would be quickly route marched out.

What get's written on TS needs saying, it needs an airing, and most of it is true.

Oi! Listen mush. Old eyes, remember? I’ve been around the block a few times. More than a few. They’ve knocked down the blocks I’ve been around and rebuilt them as bigger blocks. Super blocks. And I’ve been round them as well.  The Doctor (Night Terrors)

Just for you Des  :wink:

And the lyrics

Well you should see Polythene Pam
She's so good-looking but she looks like a man
Well you should see her in drag dressed in her polythene bag
Yes you should see Polythene Pam
Yeah yeah yeah

Get a dose of her in jackboots and kilt
She's killer-diller when she's dressed to the hilt
She's the kind of a girl that makes the news of the world
Yes you could say she was attractively built
Yeah yeah yeah

............. and no it isn't me,  although I have been known to wear a kilt as part of a punk rock fancy dress outfit  >:D

Muggins the SSP 6 monthly conference would soon send any body who showed disent out and not ask them again and also i find.the SSP. only good for networking etc. being who i am i find that being open about yourself is the best way to live your life and yes i have put my foot in it sometimes, so no nickname for me etc what you see is what you get

Welcome back to the site Keith.

A question appropriate to this thread.

Have you personally been trying to identify Talk Swindon members who work for the council?

Perhaps you would be kind enough to confirm or deny it as you seek re election in Shaw?

Talk Swindon the place where only the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth is discussed.   O0
