Moderating blogs works the same way which is why you either don't moderate at all in which case you get spammed by nutcases and the real users fade away or you moderate pretty heavily to avoid any action, libel is the least of your worries as you can be held liable for racist, homophobic or religious hatred quite easily and these are criminal rather than civil issues.

Very interesting. In the states you'll lose in a liability suit if you leave your walk/doorstep unswept and someone, postman, whomever, falls and sues. It's your property, hence your obligation to keep it safe. Not a national law, of course, but that's the way state courts and juries work here now.

Hi Julf

I am on the ferry bound for Holland on Sunday night -- so it could get more traumatic :-) Over there until Wednesday if you are at home.

Hi Peter, happily I am not a lawyer. I picked the snow illustration it is well know and demonstrates the principle, I am not sure I would be happy with a lawyer who told me I could say anything I liked irrespective of the facts on the internet with impunity however.

In the end I suppose it falls to each of us to put our point of view on this one. I am getting a bit bored with it now.

Monday night -- Essen - Tuesday - Amsterdam

See how much booze and fags can fit into a bling Bristol -- Not to mention the smuggling compartments in the front wings. ! Let me know if you need anything bringing over. 603 bits galore ! or Land Rover stuff.

I can return your ABBA Gold collection and ABBA lycra jump suit !

I may even come in the 411 S1 - just back from paint and stunning !

Sadly Beaufighter has turbo problems -- I would do a blog on the idiot that tampered with it but sadly it was me ! Should have it back together tomorrow if I keep off the computer !!

Be afraid :-)

Greg,

Let's plan on something for Tuesday then! Please, please
don't bring the lycra jump suit, you might prove far too
popular in some parts of Amsterdam!

Paul, you allude to information that would persuade the rest of us to discount Eric's story, so why not share it with us?

Or are you just making assumptions that there must be another side to it which would excuse all the problems Eric has encountered?

Thank you Kevin.

No I won't be sharing anything here as I have said quite often that I don't believe this is the right place.

Regards

Paul

If you don't believe it's the right place, stop going on about it!

Kevin, going on about what? All I have said is that this isn't the proper place for Erik to pursue his dispute. And he seems to have listened as the threads have been deleted.

All this chopping and changing from topic to topic will be causing Eric's
head to spin like Professor ....?.. on the cover of Les Boules D'or.
ABBA did win the Eurovision song contest with Waterloo, and I knew that (80%
sure) without taking recourse to Wikipeadia, which I use more often than my
own brain now, if my computer is working. Just waiting for it to come out in
print.
The song of course refers to Napoleon getting well beaten in Belgium.
Finally, I deny categorically that I had suggested Eric was a nutter.
I had merely said to him "In my opinion you are a complete nutter", which of
course is totally different, and has been taken entirely out of context
here.
Yours,
Rubbond.

You are wrong one more time Paul
Your problem is that you are doing all your best to discredit me
Because you can't prove that all the techincal problem I have are not true as they are ,
you think it's clever to write i am mad , jihadist ( not sure it's you who wrote this ) etc

This is ridiculous

I have asked Kevin to remove threads because I have received a letter from T S and as I always did it in the past , I was ok to give him a fifth chance .

I have nothing against the Bristol Ltd I just want to drive my car
2010 was a complete disaster
Have you already spent more than 70000 on the restoration of a car ?
for nothing !
I think when you are honest that it is possible to call a cat a cat

Yours,
Rubbond.
Some members are always refering to Crusades , jihad and now war & battle
Don't you think you need to be controlled by a specialist ?

I am not in war with the BCL
It's a pity that you have just NOTHING to say about the reality of the technical faults

You remind me the muppet show , two wankers who have nothing to do except critisizing

Erik, I am not discrediting you in the slightest. I am minded of the expression 'don't wrestle with a chimney sweep, you will just get dirty' and so I will go dust off and leave you to fight your deamons

Eric,

Too far. I have not insulted you or commented on your state of mind.

Strange that you omitted to tell everyone that you Toby Silverton had in fact agreed to continue working to resolve your issues, whilst instead you continue to fight on here. I think this raises questions about your integrity.

Statler and Waldorf ( Paul and Rubbond ) were very funny ! But probably too old to masturbate.

Glad to hear that thing are now being remedied with BCL
