i'm up on a very high fence on this one, but he did have a girlfriend of that name, a very nice looking french girl, as you would expect with a name like that, that was a little way down his side of the fence i know but climbing back up and slightly down the other side, i wouldn't think she would know a boat bit from a london bus

The source is this slightly disturbing story on The Law of the Playground site. Until last year it was attributed to Rupert Bonham-Smith after which the name was changed to Rupert Baynham. Clearly a case of mistaken identity.
Interesting that now it's a case of mistaken identity, whereas before it was an over egged story...

I have to wonder if he can see the sun from where his head appears to be...

That's true, but they will have to pay the likes of Domain Tools a few dollars for the privilege.

To JK

Hi JK.
Actually I did send you an email telling you that I received the engine in a rather bad condition and you replyed to the mail and told me not to do enything more.

To all you guy's helping me to solve this matter.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR GREAT SUPPORT

I really think that this thread was the reason that I got the engine.

THANK YOU ALL

The great dane

An interesting thread. I'd be suprised if Ribnet was in any way liable for anything posted on the site, similarly to how twitter cannot be held responsible for the content of tweets.

re the data protection act I believe it is the responsibility of the organisation he gave his personal details to to keep them secret if he asked them to at the time which he can't have in the first place or they wouldn't have been on Whois. Demanding all references be removed (from posts several years old) is akin to wanting every old phone book or electoral register you appear on be recalled.

Whilst I think it's fair to ask your details be removed, it's out of order to make bogus legal threats. You wouldn't have a legal case, so why make the threat when a polite request would have served just as well.

End of rant, but having been on the receiving end of bogus legal threats it just annoys me seeing it happening here.

If you are planning to have business or other kind of relationship with Rupert Bonham Smith (eBay.co.uk seller - "goldfinger1000" (seems that he is changing accounts/e-mails/cell # and addresses frequently) then from my experience I strongly advise not to do that.

I am from Latvia (N.Europe) and spotted outboard engine in eBay.co.uk and asked if everything is ok with engine and does it have documents as in many countries you have to register it to use legally on water.
Mr. Rupert Bonham Smith answered that engine is fine and it has no problems with origin.
Price was 900 GBP for engine. It was weird that seller was not responding to emails and texts to provide manufacturing year and serial number to make agreement so there is origin to register it in Latvia. Also stupid thing - cash on collection.

Only when courier got that engine from UK to Latvia we found that over original label was glued label with wrong engine serial number. Also it sad it was manufactured in 1998 but such four stroke engines were produced from 2006 till now.
Right that moment it was clear that we were dealing with thief and stolen engine. After removing of engine cover we found same serial number 1998 engine "serial-badge" pierced with screwdriver, bent, fixed with chewing gum and sealed all over with super glue.

He is lair, thief, untrustworthy dabbler. Buyers beware!
