I'm not Callum by the way; the name is the REAL Sherlock Holmes and the address is 221b Baker Street.
No. Just... just no. Motorbike is NOT common over here in the US. And you are not Sherlock Holmes; the Holmes stories were a work of fiction. You are just Callum Precious, and you have invaded Metropol like you did The TV Lounge. Francis stopped you there, and the admins will stop you here.
Pete banned him earlier if you look at the other thread he trolled.

Good. Hopefully this does not happen again; on The TV Lounge, he tries to get on every other day. His email addresses aren't that original, and the admins will notice something's fishy. He likes:

James Bond
Sherlock Holmes
Doctor Who (and time lords)
Disney
BBC
Grand Theft Auto
His own name
some form of a positive, like "Good"
and some form of "IdentFan" or "PresFan"

And also, check the IP address (if they can); if it points to somewhere near Welwyn Garden City, DENY IT. But only Sky IPs near Welwyn GC; any other company is OK.

So keep on the look out for that.
Then again, I'm an American - what do I know?

Yes, he is - but again, you have nothing to worry about. You use a different IP, right?
(Also: Send an email to any Sky IP; Sky is the most popular internet service in the UK (at least, I think so), so some Sky IPs around Welwyn GC might not be Callum.)

What are you whittering on about? Whatever it is, it's dull.

I'm whittering on about Callum Precious, a person that I have given you everything you need to know in order to refuse him entrance. And make sure to; if not, he will post his semi-English ramblings on Metropol and add absolutely nothing to any conversation ever. He is, for all purposes, a virus. You don't keep viruses on your computer, so refuse Callum entry.

Oops! Sorry, had thought that with Sky's dominance in satellite (at least, from what I've read), that Sky would also dominate in cyberspace.

To be fair, PlusNet and EE make up around 2,000,000 of that figure so you wouldn't be far off if you were comparing just BT to Sky.
