    Currently yes, a someone who claims to be a Muslim who lives in a 7 bedroomed family house near the Royal Crescent in Bath! Wow! How impressive is that! I see HE has also given away two of his other alias names on his post this morning, both of which i had previously blocked for abusive comments. Doesn't take long to suss them out does it? By the way if you are having problems, e-mail me, i've just had their Clontarf office contact me - very interesting!

    p.s. - i doubt if it could possibly be a Muslim - they're usually so well mannered and brought up, besides which can you imagine the abject horror of having the Police turn up on the doorstep, poor parents!

    Edit: Dave g - so was it ok for that @x%$£ to 'out' you on here last Saturday? Quite honestly i thought that was appalling, but each to his own.

    Dave g - yes, it's cyberspace stuff but nonetheless i thought that was quite vile. He's posting on here right now presumably from a book lined study overlooking Bath - how nice.

    Hi Colette :) Nice to hear from you again

    As you know, I had some bother on this site. One lady though it was fun to 'stalk' my every post - I kept a note of the profile and know who it was now (very disappointed when I found out who was being so childish)

    Anyway, I ignored the stalking and it stopped quite quickly

    I have lost count of the times that I have had to form a new identity, I think my extreme right wing views give me away.

    How many of these victims bring it on themselves though. Not being funny, but if you choose to put your entire life in the public domain and then a few nutters come along, who's fault is it really???

    Source(s): Helen S - I got your email, and did fall off my chair. I dont really care what people say about me to be honest, its only YA, not real life.
