    I recently paid to become a member of a bike related forum and made the
    mistake of advertising paters NTV on there - the thread was deleted by one
    of the moderators who stated that you couldn't advertise on behalf of anyone
    else unless they were also a club sponsor.

    Earlier on, I absentmindedly went to put an ad on there for some VFR bits on
    behalf of someone else I know, and the same moderator again deleted the ad.

    Looking at his posting history, he recently advertised his sons car on
    there... and his son isn't a club sponsor.

    And now that I've pointed this out to him, he's come back with a PM with all
    sorts of 'FOAD' undertones.

    Bless him... the fucking hypocrite. :)

    Oh, and this post has been inspired by the likes of Rope... but at least
    it's bike related. ;-)

    It was when I wanted to get rid of the VFR... they seemed to have a lot of
    perverts on there into them, so I figured it was a good place to advertise

    ....which it wasn't, really.

    You have to be a 'sponsor' to be given advertising privileges.

    Fleabay, as ever, was my friend on that one.

    Anyway... I've had a response now from another moderator who actually seems
    to appreciate that some of the policies on there are a tad over-zealous.

    It's like Kira and IRC all over again ;o)

    Is the dear old Herm still kicking? I recall Loz seeing her in France a few
    years ago but she was always complaining that treatments would significantly
    shorten her life expectancy.

    The moderator concerned seems pretty intent in staying on topic, and as a
    result I've not had any rants from them as of yet regarding their right to
    modify more than just his bike...


    ....although it would possibly explain why they're so seemingly hormonal.

    Leg of lamb, anyone?

    So it seems.

    Which makes him a hypocritical fuckface in my book. ;-)

    You didn't by any chance pay by credit card?

    Only, if you did, start a chargeback claim. Just say that you haven't
    received the service you paid for (the same service the hypocrite is

    It may or may not work, but it'll be slightly amusing for you and a
    fuckload of expense and hassle for the forum owners.

    I did, as it goes...
    Good call. :-D

    I'll give it a few more days to see if the other chap sorts anything out,
    and then if not, I may give this a go.
