Who is Father Goose,( no not Cary grant from the film of the same name) but the person that keeps rattling cages and being banned from other forums..................it seems that he is now on a downward spiral on the Model Boats forum.

I can't see where he gets his information and what substance he has for making his comments.......but they seem to hit a sore point each time he appears from the undergrowth to fire his broadside at the establishment and then disappear as quickly as he has appeared................just wonder who he/she is??

anyone know???

I can't say who he / she is but the postings certainly put the feline amongst the columbidae.....go on look it up.....what I do know is that any postings by Father Goose are jumped upon and removed or blocked very quickly.

I appreciate that Father Goose could be interpreted as a mischief maker but the question that had been raised on the model boat forum had, in my opinion, validity from the point of raising questions about the magazines editorial style.
I had thought the question could have developed into a decent discussion but the thread was removed almost immediately and whilst I respect the authority of the moderator to remove inappropriate comments I didn't see any problem with the points that had been raised.

It's called freedom of speech Paul, what our fore fathers fought tyranny and fascism for, and so long as posts aren't slanderous or libellous then one should be allowed to put their points of view forward. neil.

I am Father Goose and I exist behind the lines occasionally popping out of my hidden foxhole to bring you news.
No I am not Neil P nor am I Paul T or Dave M and to protect the identity of my sources I will never come out of hiding.

well, Father Goose...........now that we have cleared one thing up, I do hope you will play nicely without any upset to others please!

That is all we ask on here, as the forum runs sweetly, smoothly and above all without any hassle, and has been doing so for the past 3 or more years.
neil.

How many members of this forum read model boat magazine and how many of you think that the content has become bland and even boring.
Where is the excitement of Vic Smeeds era.

It's possibly so, who knows?

there were some wonderful projects ongoing in John Cundell's time, but sadly it now seems that all this has as you say become bland.

anyone else like to comment.......but keep it legal please, or for the first time on here I'll have to moderate, lol

Is the magazine being deliberately dumbed down to reduce interest so that the publishers can  have an excuse to move from print to an online platform only.

well, well,**  sorry FG, I have heard that phrase twice now in 24 hours from two "different people" ?????........very interesting that you have made that point............I cannot answer that as I don't know the reasons to the inside dealings as I am not Father goose............but it is interesting that two "different" people have asked me that in the space of 1 day????



Perhaps you could raise that question with one of the CEO's called Owen Davies.....I'm sure you know of him, and then let us all know so that subscriptions are/aren't renewed which ever your preference.

Wonders if i should be getting my ban button ready

As Neil stated i have kept the forum drama free for the past 3 years and i have no issues in banning people who want to shit stir or antagonise members, frankly if comments aren't constructive to the forum as a source of USEFUL information then don't post.

I should also mention that IP tracking is not past my ability along with the ability to trace you back to the Exact house you live at. 
Animality on the net is for ignorant fools who don;t understand their is always someone smarter then you out there! 

Mwhaha rant over back to you Neil  Thumbup
