Defamation of character leaves the party - not you - open to prosecution. And you are providing ample evidence

Modus operandi, is the simplest way of putting it.

I dont know who 'those of us' are. I only see you. 

How do you know what my 'modus operandi' is?

What a hypocrite you are. Justifying a liftime ban against Vin for going of topic and here you are going off topic to make personal attacks against me.

Why don't you stop hiding behind a pseudonym and use your own name so we all know who the hypocrite is.

Sounds like a thinly veiled threat to take legal action against the SPGB? Now that would be interesting.

My reference to modus operandi, is about Vin's history of posting YouTube video links to songs. The "those of us" is simply a reference to anyone who is aware of Vin's style.
Every forum member has a certain style of posting, little quirks, ways of communicating that identify them. I expect most forum members who've been around here for a few years have probably picked up the style of other regular contributors.

The following link is to a section of a thread where it is obvious Vin is engaging in conversation, without feeling the need to identify himself formerly.

http://www.worldsocialism.org/spgb/forum/regional-branches/north-east/ap...

If you wish to claim Vin always identifies himself when using the account "lindanesocialist", how do you explain those?

I've never justified a "lifetime ban against Vin for going off topic", so saying I'm a hypocrite for justifying something I've never actually justified is quite a silly statement.

I wouldn't exactly call suggesting there is/has been confusion over who uses the account "lindanesocialist", as an attack.

As for my pseudonym of "SocialistPunk", I've used it for a few years now. In fact when I joined this forum using it, Vin went under the title of "TheOldGreyWhistle". Perhaps you would prefer me to use Stephennesocialist?

 

 

Oh and one more thing regarding hypocrisy.

When Matt posted on this section of the forum, it prompted the NERB to want to prevent non NERB members from using it without permission. As both Vin and Linda are no longer members of the NERB and have requested their Form Fs be submitted to the EC (should be with the EC this Saturday) it seems the hypocrisy of wanting to isolate this part of the forum from non NERB members, is now lost on them, when they have something of "importance"  to bring to the branch's attention.

When silly, childish accusations are made and shown to be false, the sound of silence is deafening, telling everyone the accuser hasn't the bottle to admit they got it wrong.

 Vin is secretary until the last minutes are adopted by a meeting with a quorum. 

Vin suggests an urgent branch meeting and as secretary  he will inform all memebers as per rule 6 and Standing Orders   7

He will seek  an urgent online meeting for weekend commencing Friday 17th June and attempt to inform all branch members of this meeting. It will be up to a quorate meeting how to move forward.
