Wasn't he one of the internet shouty men?

Shouty man.

Anyway I will make it quite clear, I don't want notwell back, rather have TJ he was at least funny sometimes. Can't we have a Christmas truce and bring back all the unhinged users that were a bit mental but not so shouty.

At the risk of being accused of being TJ, like that's original accusation on here, TJ is actually my second cousin. He's alive and well and occasionally posting on Isle of Man News and Politics on Facebook.  Why would he even want to return here given the amount of made up bollocks and lies posted about him to defame his character? I think more people should follow his example and go join that group and actively engage. Even some of this forum's moderators seem to have ditched this site to join that Facebook group. The more people who post publicly about politics with their real names, the more acceptable and mainstream it will become, the less the powers that be will be able to intimidate people for doing so, and people won't have to cower behind fake names on here. The people who insist on posting on here and refuse to post with their real name because of some bullshit about their position or the position of family members are just cowards. You do know everyone who posts on there with their real name has the exact same problem? The solution is to grow a spine and for more people to engage.

Does he post stuff about dog poo hiding in leaves and stuff? Those were his best bits, isn't facebook full of mental fat people posting pictures of prosecco and pies?

Yes but mostly on the Onchan Residents group rather than Isle of Man News and Politics. That said, he did post on his own personal profile a moan about dog shit outside the House of Keys on Friday afternoon. lol.

Seriously though don't you think it's really reaching new levels of disgrace when people let their dog crap outside our national parliament? It's bad enough outside schools or on main pavements, but the House of Keys? That's disgusting. I wonder if Tynwald have CCTV and could check to see who it was. I think they should have the full book thrown at them. Not because Tynwald or the House of Keys are some august body, deserving of respect, but because it's in the main central point of Douglas, with lots of businesses and activity nearby, and you'd think basic civic pride would cause people to not be so ignorant. I hope the CCTV coverage is reviewed and the person gets their face shoved in it.

It’s only the government shills, anonymous media workers, and businessmen sucking off government contracts left on here. They wouldn’t dare post what they post on here on Facebook under their real names as they would expose themselves. They wouldn’t dare abuse people who oppose anything about government like they do on here on Facebook either. Their plan has backfired really as Geoff Corkish always said there was only really 5 people posting on MF and by banning everyone else they couldn’t control and who didn’t follow the consensus view of the main anonymous MF posters (people like your ‘second cousin’) basically they’ve proved he was completely right. 

Vader must be finding this all highly amusing to see 5 blokes arguing with themselves in a handful of posts a day and some even pleading to be allowed back on as they have nowhere else to troll people and post angry anonymous rubbish to. Everyone else has moved on to better platforms as you say.

I agree with that assessment. TJ was routinely accused of being behind numerous accounts simultaneously, but he worksa full time job with no access to the internet except at lunch time and works upwards of 30 hours over time every WEEK so that claim is stupid. If the recent events have proven anything, it's that the moderators misjudged TJ as the cause of the problems and wrongly assumed he was behind these various names. That said, they've still yet to remove defamatory content about him (against his real name) on here and have ignored numerous reports about it. Some would say this is vindictive behaviour. From what I can gather, TJ's road to his eventual ban began with some rich cunt (who is a regular poster here) renting out a property to him and then instead of just amicably ending it, they made up some twatty story about TJ leaving the place in a mess (a claim totally idiotic, as he's a germophobe and obsessive compulsive about cleanliness)  in order to try to divert attention from the fact they had not been declaring the rental income and profits from it to the tax authorities. If it ever got out that this main director of a major local IT company was illegally evading tax, it would be a big controversy for the company in question. So the diretor and his friend Ans (an IT security specialist) and his friend John Wright who are both moderators here agreed to ban TJ from here to shut him up and prevent him from in future disclosing the facts and to tarnish his character to prevent any future revelations being taken seriously. There was never any genuine reason to ban TJ. It was totally corrupt, an example of the Isle of Man's mutual wankshaft club looking after its own to marginalise someone who was a threat to one of them. The ironic thing is that TJ had no intention of causing trouble for the said individual(s).

Frankly the right thing to do would be to unban TJ, who never did anythign wrong, and stop being suck a bunch of cunts. The tactic of alienating or marginalising him as totally failed as he's freely posting on Facebook with his real name anyway. Their attempt to destroy him (which, prior to getting rid of him here, had also been getting him removed from two full time jobs) has actually backfired in their faces. It's time for them to shut the fuck up and stop.

I saw on Twitter they even banned Cue Ball so it does make you wonder why they are banning posters on content not on profanity, or abuse, or bullying like them and some of the people they are trying to get reinstated. There is a clear political agenda being pursued.

I'm certainly no Government shill, and I'll say again that I know at least 20 people on here in real life. I think a lot more after Friday night but that is another story.

Manx forums is looking healthy. It sounds a bit anorakish but: 5-10 years ago a good thread would receive a ratio views/posts of about 20/1. Most new threads these days are outsripping that easily.

This evening I put up the thread about Fritz Lustig. Ok it may not be the most interesting in the world but it illustrates a point in that it's had 0 replies and yet 80 views. That suggests 80 separate people have viewed it in a couple of hours (you don't generally go back to a thread you've already read if there are no replies)

Manxforums is looking healthy enough these days.
