I have heard from a number of Ringmer residents that the local gangs were out knocking on doors and when they answered sprayed the homeowners with silly string. Typical Ringmer Gang Culture

Similar in Lewes, only the homeowners were 'draped with unbleached hemp twine'. Shocking.

Really? This is what you heard?
How strange, because I was out roaming the streets of Ringmer last night with my children and it was the most lovely atmosphere. Dozens and dozens of houses twinkled with candle lit pumpkins, fairy lights and candles. Every door knocked on was met with lovely smiling faces offering sweets, chocolates and home made cakes to the children. The rule of 'only knock on the door if there is a pumpkin outside' was respected by everyone. Every one passing each other was merrily saying ''Happy Holloween!'' to each other. It actually couldn't have been more twee. I saw a few small groups of older children/teenagers and witnessed them knocking on doors and their manners were absolutely impeccable, with well spoken conversation with the homeowners and 'thank yous' abound. Once we got home and my children were tucked up in bed we left our pumpkin glowing on the drive in case any older children or teenagers passed by, as a welcome for them to knock as we had lots of sweets to give them........but none came. The streets were utterly silent with everyone back indoors by 7:30pm. I went for a drive around Ringmer at 8.30 - 9pm as I wanted to look at all the houses so beautifully decorated and there was not a soul walking around.
Today I spoke to loads of parents at school, villagers on the green walking their dogs, at the shops, neighbours in my road and residents of other roads, etc. etc. and every single person bar none was smiling about what a lovely evening it had been.
There were no gangs. There are no gangs in Ringmer, how funny!
And what's even funnier is that 'Dixie Normus', the person who posted this post, has the same ISP number as the person who posted about cars not being safe to be left in Ringmer on 5th Nov AND the same ISP number of the person who posted about (non-existent) vans being broken in to in Ringmer, which means it is the 1 same person posting about Ringmer under different names. EXPOSED!!!!! Ha ha.

If you go to the thread entitled 'Suspicious minds' and find the post by 'Hyeana' it tells you how to do it.

There was a serious incident in Lewes. My son returned home having been given organic hand knitted yogurt covered raisins. Poor little sod was traumatised.

We had a great time visiting friends for a kids party, then trick and treating. Arranged parking for the 5th as well thanks Ringmer

I am sorry about the twine nuisance, dears. I sold a quantity to a Mr Normus who assured me that it would be used to knit a straitjacket - I am not sure who for, though I could hazard a guess. @ Parent, the yogurt and raisins were delicious; you should accustom your child to eating more healthy food.

Mrs Twine! How lovely to hear from you, it's been a long time.

One of the first two posts sounds a lot more like Ringmer than the other!
Ringmer has a great community, but you wouldn't know unless you live here and it would not suit everybody. Dixie Normus, under his various aliases, is just trying to do his bit to avoid too many people, especially the wrong kind of people, finding out.

@ringmerresident - I am afraid your wonderful detective work is in fact not true. I am not the same person who posted either of those posts. And in fact the van break in was in fact true, a Ringmer lad named Jim had his tools stolen, this was shared numerous times on social media. I will admit however, that I did make up the gangs with silly string, and I caught a BIG ONE who took the bait. Enjoy your day and have a pleasant bonfire season KR Dixie

Anyone know what an ISP number is?

Only a webmaster or admin can see isp of posters. So no idea what previous poster was on about. There is no help page with settings etc

And it was me that posted re: rough Ringmer residents. Just trolling - it's great in Ringmer. I didn't know the pumpkin trick so am left with loads of Mars bars. But I'm not Dixie.

Yes I know there is no help page with settings etc. to trace ISP numbers. I was bluffing!
I did it to see if it would lead to any confessions.
Which it did.
Which is almost as clever of me as if I had have worked out how to track ISP numbers.

ISP = Internet Service Provider Such as BT, Sky, Talktalk etc. I would imagine that what you mean is an IP address.

A lot of people post on here from their phones I would imagine which tends to use a dynamic IP range, IP tracking is a fairly old school way of moderating forums.
Not sure why I validated this thread with a response.
