Happened to me yesterday, is there not a system in place to stop people from using other posters names? If not it could ruin what I consider to be a great forum, We only need a few dickheads to start messing around and it will kill the forum as no-one will have any faith in it. Would webmaster like to comment?

The post about fancying David Laws was not written by me either. There is a system to stop it. It's called registration. But last time this was raised it got the thumbs down.

Dickheads have messed around with user names since the forum started. The only way to stop this is to ensure that everyone has to register before being able to post. But then the forum ceases to be anonymous and bang go the tasty insider posts from the planning department, council, police, parking attendants etc.

I think it probably is time for registration - there can still be anonymity but it does stop the absurd antics we've seen on here. It was obvious to me that Red Ken and JRSussex hadn't written those daft entries - they didn't fit in with their style or intelligence - and I'm sure other regular users realised as well. But even so...

Registration is what killed off the Lewes Matters website. It's either too much bother to log in or people assume that their anonymity is going to be compromised. There's a lot of rubbish on this website - but occasionally there are some really witty exchanges which keep us all logging in. Webbo knows who we all are and he regulates us very effectively when people go too far.

Yes, you're right about the Lewes Matters site Sashimi and I'd forgotten about that.

Don't forget it's half term....I noticed the chat room was often full up with rather silly names at certain times of year... Wonder if there is a link??

And again two posts up. Of course anyone can see there is a disgruntled child about! Anyone who has read my posts over last year or so, will be aware that there is a silly imposter. Any chance of removing the idiot webmaster? We are unknown to each other but,Webby can see where they come from.

Seem to recall the webmaster has a record of each I.P address corresponding to each name. When this got bad a year or 2 back with people posting under multiple names, he just exchanged the multiple names for the original posters name. It Worked then, Registration NO NO NO!

Here's one for all you posters. Myself with approximately 20 long term friends want to organise a lunch together. In a private room that has a bar on the premises (not necessarily in the room) and will allow us to have a drink after lunch for a few hours. Preferably in an interesting location with something to view. Distance can be anything up to an hour or so travelling.Oh, we do not want to pay room hire as wherever we decide on will have a very good take that day. Absolutely no fear of boorish behaviour, wouldn't expect that from my friends, would you?
Ideas please, thank you

Its not big and its not clever and is a breach of trust I am not happy with
I will replace the false nickname with the name(s) they have been posting with recently should it happen again

jrsussex. I would recommend The Swan on Southover High Street. It is hire free and you can ask to use either the Marquee area or Saloon bar. They usually close at 3pm of a lunch time but you might be able to persuade the landlord to stay open for you. Just my suggestion.

Thankyou Webmaster. jrsussex good idea from boom. There is a garden and a marquee . I and my family use it often. Enjoy.

Decent Citizen - Thanks for the tip. Both Boom and I, having mistakenly placed our posts on this thread, have placed our posts on the lunch thread.

What if more than one poster is using same ip address - ie where one computer is shared ?
