    It's okay though because we'd all have to use our real names so anyone with a grudge about you deleting their comments could just google you and make an anonymous call to your work and get you sacked.

    I haven't a clue what any of that irrelevant gibberish means and I imagine barely a soul gives much of a fuck either, but I see that the website's entire intro is copied word for word from wikipedia.

    Oh, and who elected you to be the "independent arbitrator" of your own site?

    :facepalm:

    I could do the same to them in return which should make them think twice :cool: it would be kind of like a nuclear stand-off.

    They might not be googleable or have a job. Thought about that, buster?

    i just went on his website. apparently "If it were not for lecturers such as ... and ... pointing Jonathan in the right direction he may have never honed his programming skills to the extent that he could constantly evolve with the changing times to produce new Internet applications and go on to be recognised as one of the 50,000 most accomplished people in the World."

    :eek:

    alive and dead?

    I want a link to the bit where he is recognised as such. Preferably by an authority other than himself.


    Maybe there was a Channel 4 hitlist programme of the most accomplished 50,000 people in the world. And I missed it. :(

    "At the age of 28 Jonathan was elected to Pontypridd Town Council, and noted a similar path to former US President Bill Clinton, who was also elected unopposed to public office shortly after graduating from law school."

    that is classic :D

    People with a high web profile would be at a disadvantage (including the OP, funnily enough). I'd be fine, I don't have a job anyway.

    Not just 50,000 most accomplished programmers (which would be some claim anyway), but most accomplished people :cool:

    I'm sure he'll be along soon with a hugely credible source for that "50,000 most accomplished people in the World" claim.

    It would put you in the top 0.0007465746363196677% of the worlds population.

    You claim some of you have Athens accounts. Look me up in the biography section of http://www.lexisnexis.com/uk/nexis/

    With regard to the Figallo effect aspect of my site and the abuse concern comments above; I'm going to write some code where a post can only be moderated if a certain number of people have flagged it as abusive. I might check whether there is an open source system already available first though.

    That's 38,000, which is even better than 50,000 ;-)

    Exactly who said that you were one of the "50,000 most accomplished people in the World"? Did you write it yourself? What does it say?
    Seeing as you had to make up a load of laughable bullshit about 'high bandwidth costs' to try and explain away your previous complete failure of a bulletin board, perhaps you'd be better off trying to attract posters first?

    I was contacted by Marquis Who's Who, after being recommended by an existing listee, gave them my biography details, and they've included me in their 2009-2010 editions, which is limited to 50,000 - take a look at their website. The biography is on Nexis if you have access to it.

    Regarding Llantrisant Online; In the original site the trust wanted it to be self-sustaining so they didn't have to devote much time to it. As I expect you know, running online communities, especially on a not-for-profit voluntary basis is difficult. So my new aim is to use this new site as a test-bed for my ideas on conflict management that I have developed as part of my MScEcon in Information Systems in the last year. I think I'll try to get community groups involved - more are online now than when I first made the site.

    I can find no mention of you on their website but these things are totally meaningless anyway - as your claimed inclusion proves beyond doubt.
    Seeing as we both know that you're bullshitting about your original claim that the site closed down due to hefty bandwidth charges, why don't you just admit it and save yourself any further humiliation?

    I have always considered you to be in the top 50,000 of most accomplished people in the world.

    I'm glad to learn you're finally getting a bit of recognition.

    If the number of people is "limited to 50,000", that hardly makes them the 50,000 most accomplished people in the world, does it? :facepalm:

    Jonathan, is it true that Robin Hood was in reality the Earl of Huntington?

    Are you currently the 50,001st most accomplished person in the world? Are you hatching an evil plot to off Jonathan?

    :hmm:

    I think you'll find he's referred to as the 'Pretended Earl of Huntington'. I think Robin Hood can be whatever people want him to be, as the legend is constantly evolving. I don't think people should need to ask whether Robin Hood ever existed, as he exists today; in the hearts and minds of those who know his legends.

    Good answer. I can't make up my mind about you. You are an enigma.
