Yeah, I think it's auto up dating, but it's going to close down.

Does that mean it's giving the guy an income while it's auto updating and people are still using it?

You and mollers need to get your bloody facts right, Metcheck is not closing down and you really shouldn’t believe everything you read in the papers, everyone with a brain knows that!!!!!!!!!!!
Seems I guessed wrongly regarding metcheck, my apologies to anyone concerned.

Yeah, Metcheck is still alive, personally I no longer use it. As for the other 'Facts'. These are 'facts' dealt with by Exeter Crown Court not tittle tattle banded about by red top newspapers.

Your man was very aware of what he was doing and now he's paying for his actions.

Doug/Mollers, is there a username associated with the messages you recieved? If the sender has something they would like to share with the wider community we would I am sure be interested to give him/her a fair hearing.

It appears that Andrew Bond was the man behind Metcheck:
http://www.metcheck.com/V40/UK//OTHER/about.asp

Therefore if their are other owners, and Andrew is no longer part of the picture I am surprised that they have not made any public statement to that effect at the time or indeed now (and that the above page is still live on their site). Especially since this is not the only site that highlighted the connection.

There are three Andrew Bonds in Exeter according to the electoral register. So perhaps just an unfortunate coincidence?

Very very unlikely- the whois address for metcheck tallies with the street name given in the newspaper.
