Have any of you seen the chat room?

I'm quite glad we don't have it grafted onto the Forum. We'd be done for Slander, Libel and a couple of other nasties before too long.

Not me - chat rooms are notorious for that kind of thing.
Also a good way to have your PC screwed up when the wrong people are around - it isn't for me.
Interesting that Jon s wants to pay your extra bandwidth Doug!
Well, he SAYS he does . . .

I am SHOCKED at what it is costing you - almost speechless.

Well, that's how it goes.

I doubt if a chat room is viable in our environment. It would chase away any respectable partner. Look, the Forum is quiet as 6 of the chatters are chatting together. About what? Not about slot cars... you can guess.

Just be carefull. I'm not logged on as Nuro. Just playing cool.

I'm paying twice that for bandwidth - about 150 € a month. I've just calculated that SF is using about half.

Seems that the folk in the chat room are just bad-mouthing the SF mods.

Jonny is retyping everything that I've emailed to him.

Inte is just slandering everyone - except Graham. He seems a bit pissed (Inte, not Graham).

Asto, Mk2Eskort and RR.9 are in on the game.

Seems like a place for the under 18's. Don't know what Jonny sees in the place. I'd have thought that he'd be racing on a Friday night?

I had no intention of going there and that stands.

In hindsight it's just as well this board doesn't have a room.

Hopefully they can't vent their spleens there and leave this place a tad more easy-going.

Hopefully.

The chat room reveals some secrets...

It turns out that Aaron (AKA Gaugemaster) is also maskerading as Dandiest Guitarman.

He's actually talking to himself on the chat room and asking himself what he feels about the SF moderators. He's doing this because the other blokes are tired of the subject and started to talk about slotcars. He's inciting trouble.

QUOTE <Dandiest_Guitarman> are you all here to bitch about the SF then?
<Astro> all rooms have busy and quiet times,, especially new ones
<mickl> whats the hammer about then?
<Inte> we;ve done that
<mickl> u juge
<Inte> means I can kick you out
<Inte>
<Astro> we done a bit of that dandiest, we talkin guitars now
<mickl> hi m8
<Dandiest_Guitarman> hey, I have missed it then. Aaron, what happened in th SF then? I hear you left
<Inte> aye he did
<Aaron_Is_Back> Yep, but it is a long story - petition being signed shortly
<Inte> are we going to have another bitching sesh?
<Aaron_Is_Back> flagday
<Aaron_Is_Back> radio interviews
<Astro> good idea on the petition
<Aaron_Is_Back> that sort of thing
<Aaron_Is_Back> if only Astro, if you put it on SF someone would lock it! lol
QUOTE <Dandiest_Guitarman> hey, do you think I should start a 'bring back Aaron' thread?
<Astro> only if u wantg to get banned!
<RacyLady> i think its been done
<RacyLady> well - as much as the moderators wanted it to
<Aaron_Is_Back> Well, its nice to know I'm wanted dandy
The joke is that he's been talking to himself here too. Check this out.

Some background info for proof: Check this out.

IP addresses match too BTW.

Excellent detective work - I'm impressed!
I had certainly been suspicious of the Dandiest Guitarman but couldn't quite figure out why.

And Joe90 is?

Sorry, I shold have said - I'd sussed Aaron was the guitar man a while back, can't recall why. Like I said last night, is banning really a useful tool if they can get new names or already have them?

Curiously, Aaron came in for some slagging last night from a Liphook/Clanfield regular who took over running a Mini club from him.

Oh well, may as well tell you all - I'm a bisexual serial killer who defrauds old ladies using illegally imported small dogs that I have conducted medical experiments on. Apart from that, I'm a pretty staright forward sort of fellow. Just don't tell anyone I play with toy cars.

Well this is proof that Aaron has been causing and inciting some of the shite himself.

He said on the chatrooms that he had sent out 20 emails to SF members telling them of his intention to leave. He denied this to me when I asked him about it after I had received a bunch of email from 'concerned' members.

It seems that anyone that has received a freebee or anyone that still wants to receive a freebee from Gaugemaster is on his side.

My intentions are this: If any more shite surfaces, I will write a letter to the directors of Gaugemaster outlining the problem. If they want their establishment banned from our Forum due to a bloke with a split-personality then that will be their problem. Aaron can come on under his name and say what he wants and get banned or whatever, but I don't think that Gaugemaster would like to be associated with that.

Doug, you are totally on the ball and are seeing the complete picture very clearly.

I cannot imagine that a reputable company would condone his lack of professionalism while using their name. A bit of a Jekyll and Hide character and apparently unable to separate the emotional individual from the professional representative.

Aaron's personal strategy has always been the classic "Divide and Conquer" - bribe a bunch of natives with baubles and beads, get them well on your side and then turn them against those whom you wish to usurp.
It can work very effectively - for a while.
As exemplified by the Brits until WWII.

Hmmm, I thought I mailed one or more of you guys a while ago that Aaron was the Dandy. He told me himself.

I certainly warned him of the fact that the board would doubtless log him on the same IP as GC and DG and that his game would be rumbled. I didn't mention it to you Doug because I figured you probably were already aware - via the IP.

I thought my heads-up would be a warning to him to not prat about like some fool at SCI...


I would think very carefully about contacting Gaugemaster should Aaron return to SF and dick about. Whatever we may think of him (my opinion is changing slightly in light of the chatroom stuff) I wouldn't want to see his job potentially threatened over this.

Rather, if he does dick about on SF, 'out' his DG ID. Let everyone know what games he's playing. But the chat room isn't our business.

Tropi, I really don't think his trinkets and baubles were supposed to divide and rule. Curry favour maybe but no more.

Scott, were we separated at birth?

I have better thing to do with my time. I can't cross reference everyone.


I think an issue here is Aaron representing GM about everything he says. Even Jonny probably thinks Aaron is a bit silly, but he doesn't was to p-off GM because of sponsorship agreements. So Jonny has to blindly agree with all the stuff Aaron (through GM) says.

I would prefer Aaron to register as himself or to develop the DG character and leave the GM ID for serious non-confrontational topics.

I'm just adding some stuff here. Take no notice.

QUOTE <Aaron_Is_Back> well, the only people who can change what is happening are you lot - if the forum is there for your benefit, and apparently it is, then you should have an input into how it is run
<Inte> I havnt hit you yet
<Inte> but were not allowed our view, it gets edited
<Inte> or delete
<JonnyS> Not according to Nuro!
<Fergy> yeah, right....
<Aaron_Is_Back> then do something about it!
<Joe90> I'm sure some clubs could do better if they had more help from the constuctors
<Inte> like?
<JonnyS> Told me none of my business. i asked who deleted me. Answer "none of your business"
<Joe90> but I'm sure most don't do well as a business
<Aaron_Is_Back> if you are not allowed to use the forums properly, then don'y use them
<Aaron_Is_Back> there are 650ish members, right?
<Inte> which is what I'm doing but these lot wont follow me
<JonnyS> That`s why we are here
<Aaron_Is_Back> only 50ish are regular posters
<Mk2Escort> yeah
<JonnyS> yes but how many post or even stay?
<Mk2Escort> most have 0 posts
<Inte> everyone stop posting and log out
<Aaron_Is_Back> and most of those 50 emailed me asking me to stay
<JonnyS> Too right
<Aaron_Is_Back> now, the forum is for freedom of opinion
<Inte> supposed to be anyway
<Aaron_Is_Back> not 1984 monitoring
<JonnyS> Power can go to your head, got pissed at Doug and sent that as e mail. can forward that to you guys. Think his blood pressure went up as no reply ...yet!
<Aaron_Is_Back> I mean, it is your choice I guess, but I enjoyed the forum!
