Those of you who follow this site will be aware that I have a “web stalker”, a certain “Billy Boy” whose posts derive from a USA ISP address. Less than courteous, Billy has been active for about 8 weeks. However free speech and all that has allowed his often less than literate comments to appear. These versions of English had the untimely regularity of appearing after criticism of certain councillors or certain councillor related issues. Obviously tipped off by a puppet master in this Borough, Billy Boy would respond accordingly. Certain restraints were introduced and included in a side bar on this site. Low and behold, Billy Boy has fallen at the first hurdle. Sexist, racist and homophobic comments will not be tolerated, and as Billy Boy incorporated all three into his latest moderated comment, he is now “barred”. I honestly thought that the Klu Klux Clan mentality was on the wane, but no, it’s alive and well inside Billy’s mind.
No doubt when his South Tyneside handler informs him of this outcome Billy will do one of two things. Firstly, change his ID tags, or secondly, post on other peoples sites. With his ISP details known and his use of “Anonymous Proxy” blocked, he can call himself what he wants but his racist tirades and sexist filth will not be posted. Sadly, I have no control over the second issue, other than to say if people want a “cuckoo” in their nests, that’s up to them: I know I wouldn’t.
Never mind, life goes on and so will the posts. Billy Boy won’t be missed and his silly friend who uses his Blackberry facilities to tip him off should really be more careful.
Now, where’s that list of potential BRENDA suspects………………
