    Personally, I am absolutely appalled by this deception and whole construction of lies that this kid has done here. People on this forum have been more than decent to him and he's repaid their good faith and friendship by this repulsive mountain of nonsense he's put together. To make matters Further worse, he now adds Christina's good name to bolster his "story's legitimacy". I know Personally that Christina has done Nothing but befriend him and has absolutely No part in his sick fantasy lies here and I certainly hope that All of the others here realize this. To pretend that he is a military Vet(!) and has done Combat Service is particularly reprehensible and more than beyond acceptable. Many of our forum members here either Are or Have Been in the services and have, indeed, seen actual combat and this is an affront and a direct Insult to them and their comrades in arms ! We all Try to think the best of people and give them the credit of a doubt when we meet them new, but when that faith is destroyed by a deliberately and elaborately built story, there is no accepting this. We've been played here by a clever thinking Kid and enough is enough. I am absolutely in support of the action that Ade had taken here and further believe that apparently more digging is needed here to ferret out any More fake names and identities being used here. If One Kid can do this, I have to wonder what Other crap is being pulled in here that we Don't know of.

    Hi Rob, I think people deserve to know the truth. People go from one forum to another and at least now no one else should be taken in by him.

    Also several people have been asking why he was banned.

    Cheers, Ade.
    Yes I agree a post from you or some other moderator is a good idea in a situation like this, because it will inform people of issues, and allow members to feel they are being treated as peers (this is a 'community' after all). As long as it's unbiased and fair to all involved, it also shows good leadership from the moderators, and it's good to feel things are being managed well and decently.

    I just don't see the point of bringing this up in this fashion at all. "Bad form", if you ask me.

    Rob with all do respect I really did not know any other way to do this as I felt I needed to at least tell why all this began . I am sorry if you feel it is in bad taste I have thrown no mud here and have only kept to the details.

    Hi Rob, I know the whole thing leaves a nasty taste in the mouth. Sadly not a pleasant way of doing it.

    Hi Chrissy, don't worry as I said when you forwarded the message, nothing to reflect badly on you.

    Hi William, I fully expected you and others like Tom in South Africa to be appauled.

    I and the rest of the Mod team do carry out regular checks almost every day to weed out any false accounts and any dubious members are always looked into promptly. He really got under the radar as he become such a forum regular. Always a danger, when you think you know someone...

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thats terrible,
    I liked tom, but not anymore. He was always so nice and I was shocked when he was banned. I was waiting for a thread like this to happen and I am glad I now know what happened.

    Anyways,

    Guys a lot of work by the mods goes on behind the scenes to ensure the forum runs smoothly for all members in an atmosphere which is condusive to the aims of why we all come here . Much of this focuses on troublemakers , spammers and those who are downright deceitful and certainly includes Walter Mitty fakers like Talltom.

    In some ways this thread can stand as testament to that work and to the high standard of membership we have here.

    Banning someone is a decision which is not taken lightly so it can be taken that if someone is banned then something which may not be known to all members has justified that decision in this case with this " Walter " it was a " No Brainer " !!

    OK, it happens all the time and I have a feeling that many of us are not in real life the same persons we are in different forums. But the good thing is that moderators have time to explain such things and that is the reason i like this forum. If talltom was just a kid he is at least a pretty talented one. Maybe he will become a good actor or a salesman...
