I agree Harry. A third rate WUM at that. Oh, there's a few posters still taking the bait, but the majority of us stay well clear of the rubbish put forward by yon WUM in defence of the Diary being the genuine article

I think you may be thrown off by his flamboyant and passionate style.
Thank you, Abby. It is refreshing to see that those who fundamentally disagree about something can at least respect each other's right to hold the view they do.

Actually, the majority of people avoid posting anything to this thread because of this sort of response. Each new post receives hundreds of views, so hundreds of people are viewing each entry but only 10 or so actively venture a view at any one time. That's all on you and people like you who attack people's right to have an opinion. Not everyone is as unaffected as I am by the invective and the insults, so they (wisely) avoid commenting. Are you telling me that you know for certain that every one of them is a journal-doubter? Hey - are you certain that I am a troll or are you simply seeking to arm your position by belittling mine?

One of the best examples of those who tried to have a voice was the very motivated, well-intended Tempus Omnia Revelat. He was genuinely striving to add value to the debate - it is a section of the Casebook about James Maybrick as Jack the Ripper for goodness sake! - but he gave up in bitter frustration when he received too much criticism and so little encouragement from the so-called stalwarts of the site.

I think what happens is that some people start to believe that they own the site and therefore start behaving like guard dogs on it. That's a shame because that scares away genuine debate.

I come late to this party but this statement is rubbish. There was a 'suggestion' at one point that David Canter's geoprofiling might point to Middlesex Street but that turned out to be wrong. Equally incorrect is that adding Goulston Street would point to Middlesex Street using Rossmo's system. In short, like much else that is used to support arguments for the diary it's pure invention.

Thanks for that very short and thoroughly undetailed critique Phil. It seems that coming late to the party doesn't always mean you'll be properly dressed for it.

I don't know what you mean by "but that turned out to be wrong" because you do not back it up with evidence. Just look at the TV programme. You'd have to be seriously hellbent on contradiction if you did and still claimed that Middlesex Street wasn't as stong a potential locus as Flower & Dean Street. Two reds in a huge east end of London sea of cool blues, greens, purples, and yellows.

Goulston Street - it transpired - was included in the Rossmo research, by the way.

"This statement is rubbish". This statement does not befit this site.

Are the rumors true? I heard David B. and Keith S. were last seen wrestling just above the Reichenbach Falls and have not been heard of since.

The prosecution appears to have rested. I can't quite figure out if the defense has pleaded 'no contest,' or 'no case to answer.'

If someone joins the forum claiming to be an elderly bookseller then it might get spooky

Hi All,

Interesting discussion of the phrase "one off" and other matters in this 1994 book by Kenneth W. Rendell.
