Please don't feign innocence, you only dig yourself in deeper. I refer to other comments you have made about me in threads on this site. Its seems you find any of my posts on the internet "mildly irritating" Do you call this "living in peace" you hypocrite? if you are going to dish it out, prepare to get it back tenfold. However, going after a soft-targets like Ruth and Alex really pisses me off and shows what an ass you are. They don't make money out of their books, the circulation is too small. They have devoted their time to Tolkien societies and events probably before you were born. They are truly kind welcoming people and the right sort of fan. They do it all for the love of Tolkien. Anyone who knows them will forgive them an indiscretion. Tolkien book fandom is in declined because younger generations don't read. They prefer to watch films which takes far less effort on the limited grey cells. If you don;t care about the decline of Tolkien fandom, then why waste your valuable time on a Tolkien site like this? My comment stands, you obviously don't have much else to do with your life.

Stu, if that's a name, I'm not knowingly aware of inaccuracy I've posted, but I can say that many so called facts in the Tolkien book world aren't. It is simply because someone well known has said so and it can't be disproved. However if someone has taken some offense at one of my listings they should contact me so I can discuss it, not post derogatory public remarks about people behind their back. This is cowardly, childish and quite frankly this has no place in the Tolkien community. I am sick and tired of the behavior of many fans whom I find an insult to the memory of the great man. Many people agree with me and share the concern the future of Tolkien fandom is in question with this kind of childish behavior going on. While you may think its fair game to insult a seller or any person in public, I think it reflects badly on the person making the comments, not their target. Its actually not funny or humorous and it makes you look like an ass. I have complained to the owner of this site about the posts about me and I intend to make public that this sort of thing is going on here, not for my sake, but for the integrity of the Tolkien fan community which is in decline. Its always the little people, with little minds and little lives that have to bring down the endeavours of others to make themselves feel better. I'm sure the owner of this site didn't intend it be used for the exchanges I've seen here. They should take note as it does not reflect well on them or their business. I have made some public comments over some recent news in the community as people need to be aware of the facts and truth, for the sake of the Tolkien community. This doesn't mean childish insults and unfounded opinions from people who clearly have little else to do with their time.

It would be nice to know who is posting derogatory remarks about me instead of cowardly hiding behind a nickname. Have I offended you personally in some way or wronged you? Why not contact me direct and we'll have it out. I obviously don't want links posted to my FB page which lead back to such remarks. Facebook has changed how you can contact your fans which we paid a lot of money for in advertising on FB. The comment read, posting without prior permission. If other commercial organisations want to promote to our fans then they can help pay our advertising.

One would at least expect a higher standard from the BBC! I pointed out the error and they corrected it!
