So it would seem many people miss the search facility that seems to be a function that manmy people take for granted on most forums. I havent been able to find any Secret Leeds 2 website, it appears I am blocked from the Secret Leeds so called public group on Facebook, but I believe thats only accessible if you're part of the Phil Davison Plagiarists Fanclub / Clique!!

I don't think there's a Secret Leeds 2 website - just a Facebook group. Personally I'm happy using both. There are some discussions / topics that work better on one or the other. Maybe it dilutes things a bit sometimes but Facebook is so widely used it feels right to have a presence there.

It seems a shame that some kind of rift seems to have developed between the two sides. I don't know the background of what happened, but I used to enjoy Phill's contributions to this forum. It'd be good to have him back

I think the problem was sheer arrogance on some folks part...

I fancy the plagiarist will end up buried in the bloody gildersome tunnel.

Seriously though - irrespective of the rights and wrongs, whatever went off must have been years ago now, and you're still griping on about it. If you want an illustration of one of the main reasons people walk away from sites like this, look no further!

Saying we are griping about it is going a bit far, since when has anyone said a thing about said person on this site for months.Its only because the subject reared its ugly head that it is now in discussion The people who wanted to walk did so at the time so you are wrong saying this is the reason people walk from this site.

As the behaviour on this site of the person in question was (repeatedly) absolutely unpardonable and his barring was the only possible outcome, and as he has made numerous attempts to decry and destabilise the site at the time and since, I can see no possibility of his return. For my part, it would be me that "walked" should he reappear, and I suspect many members feel the same way. Until now I (and others) have regarded the subject as closed I will now return to silence on the topic, and hope it is not brought up again.
