If you don't know my views on the blue place, you must be extremely young and very new here.
As it happens, I actually am. What was so bad about the blue place? And why is Pres Cafe so much better?

Why am I getting a sudden dislike for the closing credits of the Morecambe and Wise Show?

To save everyone else time I did try to turn this into a Venn Diagram first but it was too convoluted to make it work graphically, so instead have summarised their previous info on this in an easy to understand format. Hopefully the more people who understand, the more they can be a part of it!

As per the Kojak bible:-
* Joe > All New Phil
* Jonwo > All New Phil
* All New Phil > BBC
* Cando > BBC
* (Guessing - BBC > PC Admin?)
* Martin Phillip > PC Admin
* Dosxuk > PC Admin (of a forum they're not on)

PC Admin is then either Andrew Wood or Andrew Nairn depending on the day of the week.

Unfortunately despite my best efforts following back through the post trail, I'm afraid I've not figured out where Nick Harvey, CDD or WillPS fit in to this yet, so if anyone can fill in that gap please do. Also I'm presently still waiting to be assigned an arse myself to be up/licking too. Hopefully I'll be assigned one soon though then I too can be a full participant in The Clique.
BBC?

Pleased to feature so heavily in this. I don’t really understand but it’s nice to be remembered.

Well I thought the mods & admin were always well liked, and very popular over here and never criticised.

In unrelated news, I banged by head earlier, but I'm sure it's had no impact on my recollection of events...

And nearly all from places like Malaysia and other foreign locations.

Sure they'll all know lots about UK broadcasting.

The same, seeing as someone mentioned my name there.

Give it a few minutes and there'll be 600 members. I can almost pronounce some of their names.

I did the same thing for the same reasons. I do love how obvious the spam bots are, nearly all have a website that offers for sale Viagra and Cialis, and live in different regions for some reason... I take it Peter didn't invest in some kind of robust anti-bot plugins for phpBB

It's such terrible stereotyping to assume that just because they have usernames which look like random gibberish, all have random countries listed, and all have profiles which advertise viagra or similar that they must be automated spam bots. They could all be well adjusted individuals who have coincidentally rushed in all at once buzzed for the opportunity to discuss media in a place free of tyranny and oppression.

As I was determined to get to the bottom of this one properly though I decided to follow the wisdom of one of our esteemed members here. I've sent several hundred of them messages now DEMANDING to know who they REALLY are. I've also made sure to ask them what they thought of the moderation at the Blue and Purple places too. Up to now I've had zero replies, but I am expecting lots of messages back very soon which will give us all the answers we need.
