    Further investigation is taking place, so please refrain from further arguing, flaming etc.

    On the right note, looks like it was a great day out in Newport. Glad you all had a great time.

    Just got to say, great arguement.
    second, as someone who lives in the 'port I thought I'd say the comments about newport being a hole are totally wrong... It is a whole lot worse than that!! You can't see anything apart from fake burberry and elizabeth duke gold jewellery!!

    hi all!

    In years gone by, I would have been working the big top!

    So did you go to the con Deathstar_Guru?

    Maybe we bumped into each other. God knows it was packed enough and I bumped into most people that day.

    Just make sure you don't try "bumping" into me when I am in Wales, I bat for the normal team and I am sure you get enough of that action out in the fields :p

    I don't think you have anything to worry about Tim.

    Nothing could ever take the place of my beloved sheep. They're my first, my last, my everything.

    They're my answer to my prays.

    My kind of wonderful, thats what they are.

    Cause I know there could only be one of them, there is no way there could two...

    My beloved sheep. :)

    Nope, not so much as a dickie bird.

    "Lyonsgate", lol. I like that.

    But since his IP address has 8 other socks registered to it, i'm thinking that he has either been banned or moved on to another forum to peddle his/her lies and deceit.

    Get me Kenny Baker in here god damn it!! He blanked Tim once, so its payback!

    Regardless of whether it was the real Derek Lyons or not, I would still happily go up to him, shake his hand and have a chat.

    Things like this are pretty meaningless in the larger scheme of life and I would never hold a grudge against him. If it was him of course.... Wich it wasn't...

    So the question is, would I hold a grudge against a sock?

    I think i'd send this sock to the alternate universe along with all the other missing socks.

    The trouble with not holding a grudge with a sock is that you also have to not hold a grudge with his other 7 split personalities, which makes it pretty hard to keep a track of.

    Yeah, I reckon you need to invent the "Grudge Against Multiple Socks" (GAMS for short) hardware device thingymajig and then hunt them down like the dogs they are.

    Want me to look around the North?

    GMAS: The Movie

    It was a time of prosperity, a time of peace.
    A time of CR's and RSA's.
    It was a time when two posters were pushed to far.
    Under an unprovoked sock attack, they were forced to fight back.
    This is a story of good vs evil. Poster vs Sock. Right vs wrong.

    Coming this summer, staring George Clooney and Brat Pitt, GAMS: The Movie.

    From Director James Cameron, rated R (for excessive sock violence).

    Just to update you on this.

    After further research, gabe confirmed for me that this particular poster WAS NOT A SOCK of another user. The password and e-mail address were both unique.

    Further investigation on my part indicates that the user's private e-mail address, combined with the location his ip address was registered, would seem to point this out to be the real Derek Lyons.

    He has informed me via PM that he will not post here again.

    Now, I've PM'd you regarding this WG, and you said that you apologised and he kept coming, but working my way through the thread, I see him taking it nicely twice.

    At which point, this mess should have been over and done with. However you chose to continue to harass him, taking quotes from another site and demanding to know why they don't seem to match up with what he is saying right now. No wonder he doesn't want to stick around when members of our groups that are held in higher standing give that kind of response.

    :eek: Really? I was almost certain it was a sock as well.

    Wow. I feel horrible.

    Even moreso now that I looked him up and the dude was IN Star Wars. :oops:

    The differences were enough to point that it wasn't a sock, and the private e-mail address combined with his host IP address seemed to indicate he was the real deal. I could still be being played by someone who has very cleverly pretended to be him, however at this time I am definitely leaning to real deal.

    I didn't get to the Con in newport. I didn't even get to know about it until after it happened. There was no advertising in Newport that I saw... and I only just joined these boards...

    Stil....

    So that would be in Cardiff then I take it?

    Is there enough demand to do this many cons per year in such a samll area as South Wales?

    Not that i'm complaining or anything, I think it will be a great reason to get some up of Welsh posters together.

    So what are the plans for the future gigs? Kind of the same format as the one in Newport? You planning on using the same costume, or are you going to go for something different?
