Ok, he's a knob, we all get it.
Is it about time this thread was locked and chucked in the Shit Heap?
Just a thought.
Remember, it only hurts for a bit...

Agree with Bushman, I feel he may be thriving over all this good public attention. Lets all just piss him off and get distributing posters instead, I have a good banner for Buxton market square, and a poster for every caving premises worldwide :lol:

He wants admiration, not everyone calling him a dickhead, so I can't see how he'd be thriving over this...

Last time he was "exposed" he took his website down so it must have some effect.

If what I have read is true this man should be kept away from beginners and contributors to the thread could argue that they are performing a public service. I just wish some of them were not so obviously enjoying themselves: for the 2nd time this year on this part of the forum. I`m starting to feel sorry for Mr Moorhouse. It`s a bit like watching a Question Time audience and panel gang up on Nick Griffin. Or a foxhunt.

I agree with Mr Fireguard. If you want to make personal attacks, whether or not they are deserved, have the courage to do so openly, and not behind a pseudonym (although quite a few of pseudonymically labelled posters are open about who they are). It is the danger of a bulletin board that some will treat it like a blank wall waiting for nasty graffiti to be added.

"xxxx is a slag" for example.

Not that old chestnut again - it doesn't make any difference - anyone can create a real looking username.

...and I notice that Mr Moorhouse didn't use his real name when registering here either...

Hi Bubba - I have no problem with people using pseudonyms - but just as those who use their real names have to be careful what they write, so should those who don't, but for different reasons. That's all I'm saying. And you are quite right. I am not the real PB - he's this really great guy who knows a lot of cool stuff about the Surrey Mines. I've just borrowed his name.  8)

MR MOORHOUSE!!!! Grow a pair of bollocks and get on this site and try and defend yourself, before the subject starts to compare to a conversation with my tax man.

Hey Guys if he doesnt answer put the subject on the shit heap in capitals.

Attacking someone on a public forum with this degree of vitriol isn't really on. Now, speculating on the wellness or not of his mental health openly is in all probability not wise either. Presumably this gentleman has his contact details reasonably easily available. If anyone has issues, then it might be better to contact him and take it from there.

To bin this thread is wrong, because should any future person wanna search him then they would not find this, the fact this awareness is here is what led us to here and consiquently (i know i spelt that wrong) this thread is here now by one of your members.

If you look back through my posts on this thread I pointed out he is a member on here, and his email is the same one he is currently using.

However it seems unlikely he will respond, probably because in denial, again I still stand by the fact he come accross as a nice chap with good intentions, but putting accross false security to novices in all sectors of outdor persuits.

I shall leave it to you guys to email via pm to contact him for a response.

Take a look at the front page of the Times. Spot the non MRC triangular logo on the back of the 'rescuer' in Keswick. Looks familiar, doesn't it? There again I could be wrong.

Just a thought.

I agree with Bushman.  Many people have a dim opinion of forums because of excessive rants - it doesn't do anyone any good.  Many years back I remember well the total breakdown of the alt.caving newsgroup because of non-stop ranting.

A valid point has been made, and a fair warning to the caving community of a potential "hazzard".  The point has been made - let it lie.

Does the fact that 'Keswick MRT' handwritten written in indelible pen make him a genuine team member? Like I said, looks familiar.

Nobody is bullying anyone (or indeed making death threats which is what Houghton was jailed for).

Exposing a dangerous bullshitter as a dangerous bullshitter isn't bullying, it's just stating facts to warn those who may not realise the extent of his lies until they are caught in a dangerous situation. I'm amazed anyone has any sympathy for this bloke tbh.

I don't have any sympathy for the guy. I was merely taking issue with Turner's suggestion that, because this is the internet, anything is allowed.

Fair enough Kay, I know that you mean.

I think most of the threats of stomping/general violence have been in jest in this topic but it is worth saying that on this forum, the responsibility for your posts relies with you...so it's probably not a great idea to dish out threats as they will be archived by the search-engines for evermore.
