Still has an impressive 7,797 members!

Which equates to very little. A lot of people join groups and then literally never visit them again. There are only twenty people (at most) who actively and regularly engage in the group and it's fairly repetitive. People don't regularly read the posts. Most people who do read the group might scroll through it quickly to see if there's anything controversial or if there's a funny argument to read through and laugh at. Controversy leads to greater engagement, until someone disagrees with James and the post gets shut down, but even then you're not seeing over 7,000 people actively participating, engaged or reading it. I'm a member of quite a few groups with upwards of 100k members and frankly they seldom even appear on my timeline when I scroll through it and the same is the case with James' group. I'm a member of it but I rarely see it appear, so I have to manually go onto it, which only happens if someone messages me that there's some drama unfolding.  In terms of real influence, it's got none.

Actually, somebody should do a study. I believe you can effectively measure the influence of any social media platform by the extent to which Chris Thomas engages with it. I don't know if he's consciously doing this or not but I can definitely see a correlation between his input and what I'd deem to be the group's level of reach.

Sounds like you’ve done it many times Howard, the alt accounts that is.

Why unfortunately? Did you want it to be true? 

The irony

It has been very much a head beneath the parapet job for a couple of weeks, no rants from James and his two side kicks have not commented at all, I think someone has had a word or three !!!

Judging by the Onchan FB page, the three of them are disrupting on there.

Yeh, Shelly has started posting as "Joan" and James is now posting as "Bill".

That Shelly woman is proper crackers. Is that Joan woman that’s currently disrupting the Onchan Residents Group her? That would figure as there seems to have been some proper crackpots on there in the last few days and it’s hard to keep up with the news. I suppose it does make a change to ubiquitous reports of “out of control” youths throwing stones, or dog poo outside people’s houses which is the staple diet of the Onchan stay at home yummy mummies who usually post on there but it’s not enjoyable. Some people should just be banned from the internet for their own good and for other people’s enjoyment.

Thanks P***. Your disappearance might bring more enjoyment to a wider circle of people though. On Facebook and on here.

You think too highly of yourself... It's not warranted
