Political Betting/Stormfront Lite's resident pub bore "Carlotta Vance" was beside herself with excitement today after a possible sighting on Twitter of PB's former leading Labour poster Tim - who was hounded off the site a couple of years ago after numerous temporary bannings, and having his personal details revealed without any protection at all from the Tory moderators. It may or may not be coincidence that one of those moderators (the notorious "TSE", who is currently guest editing in place of Mike Smithson) once lost a bet to Tim but delayed settling it by telling two cynical and contradictory lies about family tragedies.
Ms Vance celebrated the occasion by doing one of her hilarious "let's gloat about the left-wing/pro-independence posters who can't answer back because they've all been banned for no reason LOL LOL LOL LOL" posts. You know the drill by now - the marks of ellipsis indicate the points where you're supposed to be laughing. Gosh, there are a lot of them.
"The spiel sounds familiar.....3,000+ tweets and fewer than 80 followers.....bless.....
Perhaps like the Oscars & BAFTA we should have an 'In Memoriam thread.....
tim 'he rode a horse, shopped in Morrisons, COULSON!!!!!!!!'
Comical 'its a victory for Eck' James
Mick 'SHRIEK!!! You don't understand! Its all about GOTV!' Pork
And then there was Yellow Box Avery, who at least added to the sum of human knowledge, rather than subtracted from it....."
Well, I'm teetotal, so at least I generally leave the UK's stocks of alcohol in a stable state, rather than subtracting from them as someone else seems to be doing on a regular basis.
I've no idea whether this 80-follower Twitter account really is Tim, but I can set Ms Vance's mind at rest about myself and Mick Pork. Scot Goes Pop currently gets an average of 20,000 unique readers per month, which I suspect is considerably more people than ever used to read my posts on PB comment threads. And Mick now posts on numerous high-profile sites. Perhaps we should hold a memorial service for our former anonymity.
