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.

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?

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.

Well this is proof that Aaron has been causing and inciting some of the ****e 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 ****e 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.

QUOTE (Wankel Ickx @ 3 Apr 2004, 14:10)...I figured you probably were already aware - via the IP...
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!

I am a little concerned that there are a couple of middle aged men (Jonny & Aaron) on a Sex oriented chat room service (UKChatrooms) with a handfull of our under-18 members.


Seems all the main bitching is done by the middle aged men and the kids are just adding their whoops


The bitching goes on all night. The quote above show Aaron talking about a boycot of the Forum... It grates me that he reacts like this

Jonny sent me a reported post:

Link to post: http://www.slotforum.com/forums/index.php?...t=0&#entry24699
------------------------------------------------
Report:

Why is this allowed to stay posted when it`s bound to incur the anger of some members and is not anything to do with the positive aspects of the forum or the hobby. Surely it`s comments like these that cause problems? I`m surprised that you let this one stand and delete milder posts.

------------------------------------------------

I asked him if he felt that it refered to him and I said that if I removed this then another bunch of people would start complaining about us deleting again. He then agreed with me and said that it was fine. Then he added his views the the post linked to above.
