I followed a link from another forum to his infamous Tomb Raider review, and thought "ah, it's the angry man from Digitiser... oh he's still quite angry, isn't he?". Bookmarked his site. Then a few weeks later edited the bookmark to point at the forum, rather than the front page, as that was where I always went straight to.

He and Mali used to play Space Pirate together.

No, I finished it.

But it's now 15 years and 3 months since I joined up there. A significant chunk of my life, that.

Mop told me about the forum as I’d just got married and he thought I looked too happy about life.

Probably ugvm? The only other place I would have mentioned it was alt.digi, but that was already years dead before beex came along. I have a vague feeling I may have mentioned beex there but you would have been unlikely to see it.

Yep, I mostly lurked there but that’ll be the place.
It could also have been Niaz (gospvg) who mentioned it.

I can't parse the fact the Beex and Usenet were both visited Internet destinations at the same time.

Ugvm had comfortably more posts than beex for a fair period of time while they ran in parallel, I shifted over when it started to die off.

Not been back to ugvm in years!

I enjoyed both, and still look at WoS once or twice a year to see if there is any new content (sometimes the occasional article appears).

“Pay costs” is so vague. His or Kezza’s or both? You’ve got to possess some kind of special arrogance to commence an expensive litigation without the means to pay your costs and/or an adverse costs order.

As he points out at the start of this campaign, he swore last year that that would be the last one. He claims he’s doing another now because of Brexit but he wouldn’t have known Brexit was going to be delayed when he started the proceedings against Dugdale.
