Welcome back, Colin — great to see so many returning from the dark side !
** Phil.

Here here!!!


The owner of the 'other' forum had control issues, in my opinion.

This was evidenced on here many times.

He liked to challenge others.

He hated being challenged himself.

If he were Prime Minister he'd make the current Government looks like a bunch of moderates.

Welcome to all here at CRO.

Here's an idea for a new Pinned thread in the Newbies section. New members signing up could be advised to "Read This First". 

The Cory Ander story. Early days, the division, the defections, £10, exodus and the return to freedom.

The chapter could be made pre-requisite for all CRO newbies (added to the T&C's) lest they find themselves completely and utterly confused by mere reference to the man and his legacy.  An independent research journalist could be appointed, charged with doing an explosive, investigative documentary featuring sit down interviews with the who's who of BIR internet fora.

I've read in a few places now that he lives and runs his site from here in Australia.  The crafty blighter!  Is there any truth to this? 

Does anybody suspect that the Dark Lord could be back among us now?  There have been other times when suspicions have arisen of he himself lurking here under the guise of some other fiendishly thought out nom de plume. With so many banishings and defections occurring presently, what would prevent this from happening again?

Not sure I would go that far but I have spotted at least once, a poster who could have been open about who they really were.

That is not really an option in this case though as I presume, whilst they every 'right' to apply and join, their experience may not be, err, comfortable, if found out (as long as they don't post... tempting as that might be).

BAJ. Don't take me too literally on this one.   ;D  I should have used a few emoticons to show that I was tongue in cheek with the suggestion.    ;) ;) ;)   Well mostly anyhow.  Certainly a knowledge and understanding of the actual history is interesting and adds clarity to an otherwise confused mess, but the notion of it being mandatory is completely in jest. 

You are correct that the possibility exists for anybody to present as a new member in order to infiltrate and monitor the goings on of this forum.  Maybe it has happened before and will again.  A big Cheerio to CA if you're out there reading this.  :D  There are certainly many sleeper members and even some of the new arrivals aren't really that new although there post activity is low (until recently).

When I first joined this forum the wounds were still relatively fresh (less than a year had passed) and I had absolutely no idea what was going on when in numerous threads different members were here and there being cried out as CA in disguise. 8)  Nobody was fooled apparently, but I still don't how many, if any, were actually him. Perhaps it was actually him or maybe at least a few innocent newbies were left bewildered and confused at being accused thus.

If Mel Brooks were to make History of the World Part 2, this episode would surely get a run as a potential feature.

I see one of his last postings make reference to the antipodeans so maybe he is down here close to home.  I wonder what he thinks of Australian curry.

I do feel a bit sorry for CA, as he must be the most persecuted man in home curry cooking forum history. Every man and his dog seems to want to have a dig and it all stems from the fact that he wasn’t satisfied with the state of discussion about BIR and wanted a more structured discussion and to try to make more progress towards improving the info available to beginners (as I see it).

Having said that I can see both sides of the argument as I didn’t last very long on his forum!

Like Frank Sinatra, at least he did it his way.  8)

I agree with the points you have raised, I am sure his ego will bring him here to find out what is being said, hopefully common sense will allow him to read, digest, and take on board the constructive criticism he finds and have something positive come out of it.
Its sad that he permanently bans people who were and are continueing to gently try and show him the error of his ways.

Yes, that is true, well at least it is understood that he lived there when he was on this site.

I don't see it like that. Yes, he wanted structured discussion but it was according to his structures and rules and then he wanted to reprimand those who didn't want to do things his way. In my opinion, it was a case of "my way or the highway" and he chose the highway.

By the way just to get my dig in, his site looks as if it was designed by a 6-year-old.

That's very optimistic, and positive spirited of you mickyp. I think though he lacks self-awareness in abundance, so I suspect that this will not happen. He will seek to apportion blame to others, just like a certain '45'. Covfefe.

Not bothered either way who joins, lurks or supposedly returns to cR0, as it is a free and open forum.
It would be nice to think they bring new and original content with them, to add to this resource.
But I doubt that to be the case as the Les Jones (CA) site was a blatant copy of cR0 in the first place.
Furthermore he did not break any original ground with it, just a load of expats trying to make a curry they remember eating somewhere over the rainbow.

How many of the refugees are expats and how many cR0 membars are still members of CAs site and are paying to be remainers there.

CA did do an enjoyable video of him trying to make Pilau rice
Worth a watch
