It's not really baffling. Why would anyone want to divulge anything to anonymous people just because they have a website with the word leaks in it?

Yes, this is probably the explanation.

 

Perhaps if those behind it were to step out of the shadows so we can see who they are and if the intentions really are honest the flood of hidden scandals we are promised will come flooding out.

If only would start a website like Amazon but only for the Isle of Man that would surely be a huge success.

Not baffling. There is just nothing to come out along the lines or scale expected here for years. If there was, there would be no need for a Manx leaks site. It could easily be released onto the internet anonymously from off Island and locals alerted. Too many vivid imaginations.

The image problem Manxleaks has is easy to analyse. They said they are a team of experts in journalism, law, and business ....... so they sound exactly like the clique of dodgy bastards in the media, legal, and business circles who have really been responsible for hiding the real dirt that's been going on here for years. Why would people disclose to persons unknown from that sort of group? They might as well said "We are a team of secretive but enthusiastic Masonic journalists and lawyers, but we're the good guys honest. Not the other ones who are doing all of this stuff in the first place ... "

If it were possible for a site such as this (Manxleaks) to be truly secure and free from the consequences of ip address chasing and litigious lawyers, then it may be that some interesting stuff would be posted, however as it is not going to ever work like that nothing will ever surface !

I could talk to Roly, and often did. I first met him when Blackpages was still 'anonymous' at a social occasion. Anyway, as it transpired it soon became common knowledge who was the writer of the pages anyway.

 

There was no need for Roly Drower to be anonymous. Erm, was there.....?
