Default Where's Pierre?

Haven't seen anything from him in a while. Has he disappeared into the deepest recesses of an archive searching for that last piece of data? Lol.

Abby



Pierre is no longer listed on the members list, and his status on posts is shown as *.

This is what normally happens when someone is suspended or banned.

This seems to have happened around the weekend before last.

This is an obviously a private matter so doubt Admin will say anything.




I suggest this thread should now stop.
It could well be considered by Admin as ridiculing Pierre, if anything else was added.

I think "Pierre" was a sock puppet account of someone who was familiar with these boards.

I've seen this type of behaviour on other messageboards on every subject.

Ripperology more than perhaps any field is desparate for new information and when a poster claims to have "Secret Squirrell" information that they eek out hints about but never revelling anything of substance is what has went on here.

The purpose is to cause disharmony and have as many people as possible hanging on every post the troll makes.

My best guess is a long-time poster who was banned and reeked vengeance playing the long game of "Pierre".

I really don't notice the administration on this site, a sign of a well run forum imo, but I am surprised this troll, and that's what they were, was allowed to carry on their nonsense as long as they did.

I'm still a bit surprised at how many people made second, third, and more attempts to engage him in intelligent discussion.
