My mate Pete and I were going through the six months or so of posts to see whether we featured but no luck!

Mr Valentine passed comment that there was a noticeable amount of advertising for male dating sites and concluded the majority must just be gay. It made me laugh because the advertising was probably using re-targeting technology based on his viewing history and/or other behaviours online.

I don't have any problems with your photos Ben. I'm allowed to express my opinions, and would you rather have people lie and have them say a random photo [not the photo being mentioned] [its not the example, using a photo that doesn't even exist] looks great, or be honest and say its not that great?

I said I truthfully don't like it, but its still a nice photo, and its obvious it is since it received a PCA award. Maybe next time I'm around bring some duct tape along just in case.

As for giving him attention....I removed myself from the group not long afterwards. Every time I would dis-agree with the man I would have a pretty nastily written e-mail from him.

But I do have the honor as well of being called out by DV, but no novel like Ben's.

I looked to see if I had anything on his list.

. The orignal one had less cow catcher.

Funny, I don't remember bitching at all, just asking about why it was removed without telling me, then I made it better.

That I think shows the maturity difference. You can learn from your mistakes and get better, or go start a website bitch fest.

What a waste, and probably a commentary on modern society depending on how old he is.

Psychopathy : mental disorder especially when marked by egocentric and antisocial activity (Source : M-W)

This guy clearly needs help. At least he's obsessed with RP, and not young children.

You are 1000000% correct, Greg. His maturity level is of a....well....exactly what he is. A retarded troll.

There is an unhealthy obsession with Chase; but I think he's an adult.

Some members at Wheels on Steel (.com.au) do the same thing with every photo I add to RailPictures but they take it one step further - they refuse to purchase the Australian Railway Magazine, Railway Digest, because I'm a contributor.

Why? One of the graffitied my mother's car back in 2006 and I reported them to the Police for it.

I'm surprised this has gone as far as it has without one of the higher ups locking and/or removing the thread. Although I'm guilty as charged this is just fueling his drama fueled fire.

It really is a nasty business here, especially in Queensland where some people think they're above everyone else (and the law). I even know people in the same group mentioned above who've purchased wire cutters to remove fences and spray cans to deface rollingstock and infrastructure and provided confidential information to the scum of society for financial kick-backs.

Wow, I'm really sorry to hear that. Honestly, I am. Puts in perspective how "easy" we kinda have it over here. I've never ever encounters anything like that here in the states other than the forum topic we have here.

You're lucky mate! You never know who's driving your train home or even who's controlling those green lights along the tracks.

Fascinating. I had heard of the rat, but had no idea who he was.

The whole thing seems to be a cult of personality based around someone with dubious mental health.

He hates wedges, but hates anything that is not a wedge.

I am also ashamed to admit I spent an hour looking through posts to see if I warranted any rebukes, but alas, I don't rate.

I would like to ask him this question.

How many photos have you had published compared to what people on RailPictures.Net have published?

I think I might know the answer!
Teacher Teacher pick on me!

If Mr. Valentine is reading this, please send me a email at amtrakdavis22@yahoo.com with your answer.

Yeah, Chris Nuthall sent me an email ... I might send them a few photos. Railway Digest and Australian Railways Illustrated are still my preference.
