Can I just ask if cat_race is like an alter ego or something? I don't really 'get' it?
you should not assume that the troll is craig foley
it's quite fun though, i like it.
you forgot to reply to email. i also like nicktoon and freaks with geaks. i can do this
He just gets wound up when anyone suggests that its him.
and you know who cat_race is.
i'm getting a little sick of little miss i-know-all-the-DiS-secrets!
that he seemed to be slightly less 'wacky' initially, then suddenly upped the quota of 'charmingly' childish typing. I can't be doing with inconsistency.
Other than that he seems alright, if a bit dull.
This one's yet to prove his stamina though.
And apparently he's in a band up there but he's not chuff. Apparently.
and anyway now hes mrs chuff
She was just the first of the people who knew to spill.
which anyone with half a brain could have told you.
Maybe she has COMPLETELY lost it though.
fuck this shit, i don't care.
Looking for my next victim.
is what made me think it was him....and he's disappeared for a while.
would you REALLY be surprised? =D
- doesn't live in Manchester
- doesn't tour with a band
- obsessively posts MS Paint images
- has a desire to use foul language / NSFW stuff
- tends to type in a literate manner.
and he was deliberately typing this way. i must have missed the manchester / band thing / any other references to real life.
but seriously, fuck this shit.
I miss him a bit.
where he explained he was an old user who'd been busy with his band but was back now and was from Manchester or something.
He must be in Manchester because he only has sensible conversations with the Manchester lot.
was used by somebody else in some otherwise unremarkable thread, and picked up by cat_race to become what it has become. I bet he didn't even pay royalties.
."Meow, meeeeeow? Meeeooooowwwww, meow!!!!" last night I suppose
This has really tickled me a lot
because people don't know who he is?!
Will new users need to fill in an application form from now on?
He's a friend and a lot of people seem to like him anyway...
No, he's banned for posting thread after thread of utter garbage, i.e. not just banality just pure nonsense. Plus multiple posts in threads that are similarly tiresome trolling.
I'm sorry he's your friend but I've had to ban Foley a number of times (dunno what's happened to him recently), someone I like but who was generally just being a big annoying troll. Essentially if you didn't know him personally you'd probably be glad he was banned too.
I banned him once early on for the same stuff but relented after he messaged me but it's just getting too rubbish.
I thought people liked him. I've not been paying much attention, if people post multiple threads I don't like then I just ignore them.
but it's just ridic.
Stuff like this http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4305358
and then this
I just don't even register those threads, I have spam block on my actual eyes it would seem.
Well if he's any troll worth his salt he'll just re-register. I doubt he'll ever get to CG levels of loveable multi-account trollness, however.
if someone is going to insist on using the internet in character, they probably shouldn't overdo it.
I know who it is and I also couldn't care less
and I'm from Birmingham and know who he is. It's not just these Mancs.
I'll reveal for a good fee.
It's only words. Everyone knows I do my stabbing between the toes
but if there's one thing that's bound to get him hot under the collar it's the posting status or otherwise of the user cat_race
I don't really 'get' joke accounts though.
That was yesterday.
Then he got banned.
Now I'll never know if it was just a fluke.
boring account. try harder.
last time I got stabbed in the face i was picking pubes out my teeth for a week; it wasn't very pleasant.
Not the stabber surely!
I have frolicked in many meadows with cat_race having a gay ol'time, and will be back for more tomorrow!
i feel old
my first double
He was practically the only reason I read these boards.
Check the original date on this thread. It's older than Jake Bugg. (I was also confused at first)
For the last year and a bit.what happened to Bamos?and Cronin and Klaire for that matter?
Which reminded me of the early 90s Manchester band Intastella. And after watching a couple of their videos on the youtubes, I had a little rustle through wikipedia and discogs to see what, if anything, they're up to these days.
Turns out they're doing a bit of this and a bit of that. I clicked on the lead singer's facebook link, which went to an actual profile page. 5000 friends. 1 shared. Cat Race. A fake/throwaway profile (i.e. listed as Cat Race, rather than his real name, and with no activity in recent months) with only a dozen or so friends, nearly all identifiable as DiS regulars. Alongside the singer from Intastella.
So there you go.
And here I am.
Wondering if the singer from Intastella is a DiSer.
(i was at work today.) could've happened to anyone.
it's a reet mesmeric wee tune.
