    That is a very good version, Vin. Thanks, I will add it to my list of, "music worth listening to."Let me counter your, "Disturbed; The Sound of Silence," with my opening gambit of, " Hazel O'connor's; Eighth Day."Not as good as your choice, but it is all I can thihk of at short notice. I am unable to" post and copy" for some unknown reason. The meaningful line is, " He said, behold…… what I have done."

    My name is not Vin and for you to suggest it is , speaks volumes. Bob knew me well and knew I had had my own brain.

    Vin is not keen on Simon and Garfunkle, but I like them. He is more into free, faces, etc who

    Actually a child starves to death every four seconds, mostly little black children and the silence on the media is deafening. Now that children in Europe and USA are starving you might think people would open up but still silence. Perhaps they need to suffer it first hand to open there mouths. No pun intended

    I don't think it's a case of Joe being a male chauvinist, more a case of not being 100% sure who is operating your account.

    That is defamation of my character, too.  I make it clear when Vin uses my account and I  allowed him to use it mainly under pressure from branch members.If I allowed him to use this account, he would have a lot more to say as you well know.

    Perhaps you think those of us who have watched events unfold over the last few weeks, are simpletons.Modus operandi, is the simplest way of putting it.

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

    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/april-branch-meeting?page=5If 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.
