I seem to remember GU being restrictive on posting stuff, track listing etc, plus sites like Soundcloud were non existent.

Was there even a mix section?

I can't remember to be honest. Think there was. In the good ol' days we sent out CDs in the post. Still got a load of Duncan Bankhead's, one of Carwyn Butcher's and I think a few from Damo/Sneddon IIRC

..must have send a fortune on postage, sending CD's all over the fucking world, latterly it was PM for links and tracklist

..crikey

..loving this one too Dan

..hypocritical in what way? surely its only hypocritical if you're suggesting that in some way I have an interest in denying Dermo is Phil or whoever, as I've explained, I genuinely don't give a shit

In my experience, messageboard IP checks have thrown up inaccuracies... though I fully and unreservedly apologise to yourself and presto for not having kept a spreadsheet of specific incidences, and for ruining your erection

...just coming to the end of this naus, absolutely loving it, fictionalised account of the Dreyfus affair, fucking incredible story:

http://images2.eruditetechnologies.com.au/original/978/009/194/9780091944568.jpg

January 1895. On a freezing morning in the heart of Paris, an army officer, Georges Picquart, witnesses a convicted spy, Captain Alfred Dreyfus, being publicly humiliated in front of twenty thousand spectators baying 'Death to the Jew!'

The officer is rewarded with promotion: Picquart is made the French army's youngest colonel and put in command of 'the Statistical Section' - the shadowy intelligence unit that tracked down Dreyfus.

The spy, meanwhile, is given a punishment of medieval cruelty: Dreyfus is shipped off to a lifetime of solitary confinement on Devil's Island - unable to speak to anyone, not even his guards, his case seems closed forever.

But gradually Picquart comes to believe there is something rotten at the heart of the Statistical Section. When he discovers another German spy operating on French soil, his superiors are oddly reluctant to pursue it. Despite official warnings, Picquart persists, and soon the officer and the spy are in the same predicament.

Narrated by Picquart, An Officer and a Spy is a compelling recreation of a scandal that became the most famous miscarriage of justice in history. Compelling, too, are the echoes for our modern world: an intelligence agency gone rogue, justice corrupted in the name of national security, a newspaper witch-hunt of a persecuted minority, and the age-old instinct of those in power to cover-up their crimes.

Hold on a minute Damien, yesterday alias's were boring and ruining the board and today you're perceived mate has been outed and all of a sudden something is amiss.

Since when on the GU board or here were outed aliases proved inaccurate?

..oh fucking grow up BF, Dermo is no more my 'mate' than you or anybody else on here (the ones I've never met in person at least), or does it just fit your agenda better to lump me in his corner now you two have had your wee fall-out? I don't play those games and never will.

I completely stand by what I said about aliases and revived usernames being dull.. I've no idea if Dermo is Phil and am frankly bored of the whole thing now. I come on here for a bit of entertainment, and when people create other usernames just to say things they haven't otherwise got the bottle to say, or to just trot out repetitive shite ad nauseam, it detracts from that.

As far as the IP check thing goes there have been several incidences going right back to GU days where people I've known have been wrongly accused of having multiple aliases, so in my opinion whatever system is used to get this info isn't that accurate.

That's my opinion.. OK with you?

I think it's about time somebody with the relevant experience posted a definitive 'board ethos' that we can all bind to.

It needn't be long winded, I've successfully boiled it down to just 3 easy statements.

1. Don't be nice.
2. Over 40's know best.
3. The word cunt is critical to our mission.

..I'd be fascinated to hear your strategy for improving this scenario 'comical'

There are some tedious cunts on here, but fuck me, you take the biscuit

..Loopy only has the one, it's his interview tie, and as such gets a LOT of use

He likes to think of it as an ironic 'conversation piece', but as we all know, and as prospective employers quickly discover, it's actually just a knotted-polyester segue into some massively inappropriate tale from his years in the 'industry'

The alias/digging up old users thing is fucking tedious

Too much unfunny aggro
