Ah, no. I know Thang-y has been accused of being an alias because she knows him so well (lives with him?) But she does seem to know all of his various handles, which are more copious than he lets on, I'm sure.


Thang-y is my fiancée, and does indeed now live with me in Deepest Devon, and thus shares my IP address. I have absolutely no input over what she writes, and would not want to.
As I have mentioned before, many times, I have three aliases; HipsterDawg (whom I use to channel the wit and wisdom of my dog Scrap), Dead Doris (Doris was a sister of my mother who died, aged 12, in the 1920s, and was still a haunting presence through my childhood) whom I occasionally use to make gnomic remarks about death and as a surrogate in the cups, and Ragye, who is simply another version of Rayge that I use when for one reason or another Rayge is unavailable (most recently because I wanted to save Rayge's 10,000th post for the one I made in memory of my father and the week I spent in in a Thomas Hardy novel viewtopic.php?f=40&t=135103 ).
These are the only three I ever had (although Ragye's name has changed several times depending on circumstance). I have never used any of them to parody or attack another user, or to do anything underhand.
I'm sorry that my being open about my aliases and the reasons I have them has led you, and perhaps others, to assume that there are more, but I can do no more than simply restate the truth, and put my name to it. If an admin could be arsed (Moddie? Hatz? Prof?), I'm sure they would confirm all that I've said here. Really, nothing to hide at all (and I was perfectly sincere in that PM, too).
All best
Ray

Rayge just became the most interesting member on the board after that thread. Plus do we have another couple that BCB help put together?!?!?!







I'll fire over my address for the wedding invite, I know you won't want to invite the rest *Taps nose*

Stay tuned for the next thrilling installment of Googamoogagate in the Twilight Zone.

Or better yet, go and have a nice cup of tea and forget all about it.

It's true. I've never thought it was the job of admins to grass up aliases in public but if anyone wants to out themselves, feel free.

Can you think of a way where "I wouldn't dream of speaking for Gash or Skope" may appear somewhat more likely, Ray... you know, like not quoting me talking specifically about those two, in your response?


Well, it was your bringing up of the conspiracy theory about the PMs and skope that prompted me to point out that I, at least, did nothing to promulgate it, even though I expressed my disappointment about skope's being 'hounded off the board'. I quoted you not because my remarks were aimed at you but because it gave me an opportunity to do that: I'm just (as usual) over-explaining my viewpoint and my conclusions (which may well be 'wrong') because I do have a morbid concern with not being misunderstood.


a) I never knew it was you that first used the phrase 'hounded off the board' re Skope.
b) I've not suggested you have exacerbated/encouraged the chat around Gash's assertions about any conspiracy re Skope.

So, basically, you're denying things you've never been 'accused' of in the first place.

Unlike when Gash directly accused me of conspiring/encouraging by PM the banning of Skope.

There's quite a difference.

No, I'm clarifying my position so that no one assumes I was in any way involved, as my sense of integrity is important to me (with the added bonus that I bored the Tory turntablist ;) )
As far as I know (some posters are on hard ignore and can say whatever they like, as far as I'm concerned they're dead), no one I care about on here has 'accused' me of anything.
And of course there is a difference between my clarifying my position and whatever Gash did, because we are entirely different people living at opposite ends of the country – I'm not sure what point you are making here, but never mind.

The point I'm making Ray?

It's you that quoted me mate, not the other way around.

It was you making a point by using a completely unconnected quote of mine.

But, hey, let's not worry.

After all, I think Gash is trying desperately to get either yours or my attention.

Here! Here! Me! Me!

As I explained in an earlier post, it was just a peg. You had gone a little off-topic and I wanted to follow that line, so I pegged it on your post. I was not getting at you.

If your original remark was directed at gash, and he alone, perhaps you should have named him.

This is all feeling as incestuous and picky as a family Christmas in Norfolk.

It's not a great thread, is it?
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
