There are many people with the username simcal on the Internet. I've checked. That's what I do - keep 'em orderly and mop up the mess. I don't do "therapy" - I work for 'Is Torlship the Patrician, not the National 'Elf!

What I do know is the trip was a disaster waiting to happen, yet despite any view on his comments, members comments or his perception of then, he is now getting it delivered. Good result.

I refer you to paragraph 3 of post 72... there's good advice in there for many discussions on this forum

In all fariness I don't think Admin have anything to apologise for... the OP was still being an arse and as unhelpful to himself and other people on here. I was just delving into the "why" rather than the "what". Probabaly gets off on the reaction. To put a smile back into the thread, the first post was going to be:

===========================
From: https://id.theguardian.com/profile/s...tream=comments

Simcal commented on Prison perks: inmates must wear uniforms as Grayling cracks down.

@LordRodneyXIV -
I used to deal in tobacco. I also had a nice little earner with letters. I would soon have a little number going with tv's. Bound to be a con prepared to pay for a tv and another needing tobacco. Entrepreneurship does not just stop because you are in jail.
=====================

I wonder if Simcal realises that "tv's" can equally mean transvestites. Gives a whole new meaning to:

"I would soon have a little number going with tv's."

...which giving the misuse of the apostrophe is quite a reasonable assumption to make

Actually, most likely just a very lonely and angry person trying to give himself a purpose - did say he/she usually kayaks alone. Actually, if he was liberal enough to have something going with multiple transvestites, I’d probably think all the more of him... Or her.

Clinical depression - NHS Choices
That's a real shame then. Forums such as this can be really helpful in that regard.

Yeah I tend to agree Paul

At the end of the day, did he really upset anyone?

I'm quite confident Willk wasn't emotionally scarred from the encounter and let's be honest, a bit of scandal now and then is good for the ratings....is it not?
