On the previous post, I mentioned a character called Sidmouth.
Sidmouth is (or was, as you'll see in a minute) a Black Hatted regular commentator of Maggot World.
It just happens that in one of his comments, about this very blog, he made one bad move: his argumentation was based on, said he, not us, on his memomry, thus confessing to all that he had been in PdL during that fateful week.
Back in December when the blog first approached the issue that we thought that the Tapas dinners were nothing but yet another McCannish large clunk of clutter, the Black Hats decided to start a thread on the subject with the fatalist title of "Textusa Meltdown".
I, in turn, used all their statements/questions at the time, and without altering minimally their content, transformed them all into questions, which were answered to show how ridiculous their counter-argumentation was.
And this was one of Sidmouth's "question": "You are trying to figure out where the staff would have got a large round table from......
It's there right at the back of the tapas...there’s three of them from memory. They are used for the childrens dinner from the creche so all the kids can sit on the same table or two tables if need be.
There are also larger table up above under the pegolas to the side of the tapas where children can also be seated....
Don’t you think there are lots of different size tables that could be used anyway?"
So Sidmouth, by saying "there’s three of them from memory" together with "It's there right at the back of the tapas" and "There are also larger table up above under the pegolas to the side of the tapas" explains clearly to us all where were existing round tables at the Tapas complex during the week in question... and that kind of information one can only know first hand...
I decided to go and revisit the Maggot's “Textusa Meltdown” thread , and was quite surprised (no I wasn’t), to see that Sidmouth is no longer there.
All his comments have vanished into thin air.
As far as I know, only two entities are able to delete comments placed in a forum: the forum admin or the actual author. You may still read (if you wish and before they erase this too) that preciousramtswe says, quite clearly that "Textusa attempts line by line a rebuttal of this thread":
The key words here are "line be line", so just refer to the post on this blog, and check exactly what Sidmouths comments were erased.
I'll help you. Besides the one already mentioned, were these::
"They don’t even serve tapas there, do they?"
"And if they did serve tapas there do you really think they would seat them at a table that’s not big enough?"
And even that compliment "bluj1515, WOW!!" in response to bluj1515's "I'm going to blow your freaking provincial European minds" scenario is gone...
But whoever was with the rubber, got a little too excited and also wiped off alibongo's "Can you fit 9 people around a round table?" away too.
It just means that it wasn't the author who was doing the rubbing out...
A scenario very similar to George Orwell's 1984, whereby all "inconvenient" were literally cut out of history: “In the Ministry of Truth, protagonist Winston Smith is a civil servant responsible for perpetuating the Party's propaganda by revising historical records to render the Party omniscient and always correct”.
The idea was to make the existence of these "inconvenient" totally unrecorded, so that they simply ceased to have even existed.
But in the FICTIONAL "1984", ONLY BIG BROTHER controlled ALL recording devices... today, in the REAL world, to attempt to do the same is to be able only to achieve foolishness.
Really coherent people these.
If they don't have a drop of dignity for Maddie's memory, why should they have any for themselves?
At least this Maggot thread lived to justify its name. A part of it has really melted off...
Oh, how wonderful must have been those peaceful afternoons under the pergola...
