Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@billy not a boy, the difference is that you are not, on the one hand, decrying xenophobia and, on the other, constantly making disparaging remarks about British skiers. That totally begged the question of where he lived, or at least skied. I did ask this question, if not expressly, then implicitly, in connection with his 'I cannot speak for France' comment.

Similarly, you are not for ever making reference to your occupation in support of your arguments: if someone does this, he or she must expect to be questioned on the matter.


I can't argue with that ... questioning, however, is not the same as abusing a position of authority Smile

We differ in our views on what is acceptable behaviour ... let's leave it at that. I don't think TTT is coming back Sad

I enjoyed the baiting.

No I didn't say it was "perfectly okay". That's your phrase, Mister* Billy-Anonymity.

I didn't and if we want to talk bullying, TTT's sheer repetitiveness, shameless willingness to distort what others said and endless determination to have the last word was also a form of bullying.

I think BASI's hierarchy regard Simon Butler in much the same way as the England cricket grandees view Kevin Pietersen. However, KP has no legal right to selection. I think SB does have a legal right not be expelled from the organisation with his licence revoked by a secret process (the court agrees with me, at least so far); nor to have paperwork withdrawn, which facilitates his right to work in France, via equally secret proceedings (and alone among people who've passed the same exams in the same period).

Now things are starting to go well for SB in the French courts, BASI is looking down multiple barrels. Surely they should settle the actions, grant SB his MoU (again) and bung him a few quid for his troubles (which are undoubted). Then sit on the sidelines while the French (and possibly European) courts reach their decisions. I think he's already publicly offered to resign from BASI should those decisions go against him after all avenues of appeal are exhausted.

@laundryman, BASI still think they are correct, this I believe will go much further yet.


@billy not a boy, you seem to have upset some bullies. TTT is not here to fight her own battles, so this may end much swifter than if she was here!

Indeed - should it occur to anyone to make that search. But to repeat the info on the live thread after the mods had deleted it after TTT had explicitly requested it to be removed smacks of - at best - rudeness. Please take more care in future; one day it might be you who gets outed unwillingly on the web somewhere, but the best way to avoid it is if every one of us takes a bit of care in deciding what to post online. rolling eyes

Anyway I think it says a lot that TTT has skulked off after such paltry info was given out, so we know where they live (most of the time), are they so embarrassed by their previous arguments that knowing that is such a big deal... I guess so Shocked

@geeo, No you don't know where they live other than what country and it's a pretty big country.

I noted that TTT deliberately avoided answering certain questions regarding such things as why Snowboarders were expected to take the ET on GS skis, I likened it to asking a regular car driving instructor to do a lap of a race track on a superbike and be in touching distance of the pro racers.

@stewart woodward, it would be a good move by BASI.
Totally consistent with the other 140 plus domain names they have purchased to protect themselves considering they are the sole provider in a national market and are not for profit.

Yes well the fact is they live in that big country that wont be named, i'd guess they probably live in the south of that big country, you know the place where they have a good football team, are near Austria, have LOADS of corporate businesses, lots of expats, beer festivals, ToyTown forum, so much that I would bet hard cash on it wink

@Malaise Meleze, Possibly a tactical withdrawal as opposed to a full Flounceo. TTT felt that she was about to get outed (real name, occupation, city of residence, whatever), the mods stepped in on that one and she decided not to risk it any further. Probably still lurking and may even be back under a new username at some point wink

Just paused pending some actual new news.

I'm not sure there is any lesson to be drawn at all, other than that kids form an excited circle around a fight. But I expect most of us learn that at an early age.

TTT comes and goes. Likely to be back IMO. Has too much fun to stay away, unfortunately.

Consult their legal liability insurance company, I would imagine, and take their advice. I would also think that they would have taken that advice before action against SB.
