In the past month I've actively stopped posting on Fastfude.
I no longer see it as a healthy, helpful meeting place of musical people.
Facebook has given an open channel of communication with anyone making music in N.Ireland to personally reach out to almost anyone they'd like to. It serves the purpose, while removing the aspects of such discussion that I find negative, pointless, ignorant and boring.
However, my name's been brought into a thread.
My inclusion in the suggestions is factually incorrect.
Can we meet up and talk about this? I'm always willing to openly discuss such aspects of my activity.
I have a little bit of time available this week before I start album projects that take me up to the end of the summer.
I will happily fill you in on my involvement with this project,
the details therein and my views on why I think it stands to be of benefit to people I'd like to help.
Send me a pm or email email@example.com
Include your number and I'll give you a call now.

Anto, this board hasn't been worth the not-inconsiderable-hassle of setting up a false account in years in the name of a larf, and in the past six months it's become so dull days go by when I don't even look near it.
It sure has been a slow burning sock puppet: http://fastfude.org/egosearch.php?id=6811
[quote:ea5c462c96]Rocky: your private messages function not working?[/quote:ea5c462c96]
As these insinuations were posted publicly and subsequently read by hundreds of people I think Rocky has a right to publicly respond and let people know that they're unfounded and he's dealing with it.
Sock puppets are incredibly difficult to run without detection since Roger introduced the 'posting from the same IP' function.
It is one of a number of anti-hate moves from Herbert which have served to render this board moribund, banal and gay, [b:512e7ecc07]IF YOU ASK ME[/b:512e7ecc07].
I'm just sensitive on the subject, Anto - I remember when there was a general discussion forum on here that you didn't even have to log in to post on. Completely anonymous.
AND IT WAS FUCKING CARNAGE! :D
