(The following has been shown to be nowt but a fairy tale. I'm leaving it up cos some of you might just find it amusing and hey, just cos I'm a moderator I fail to see why I should be spared a certain amount of public humiliation....sheoot !!)
Hey now kiddies.....sit yourself down, cosy up in front of the fire and listen while Grandpappy Wombat tells you all a bedtime story.
Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Umerica lived a little troll, he who was known as SmallBoatVoyageur but we'll just call him SBV shall we ? Now SBV decided to visit the village of SailNet there to chat about his boat with his friends the Gullibles.
"Hail fellows and well met" said SBV to the Gullibles "I have me a pretty wee boat, she be Seaforth24 of Superior and I need some help."
"Oh post us a picture young Voyageur" the Gullibles cried but alas SmallBoatVoyageur had no image making device and could not comply. How sad.
Now from the woods came a cloaked figure, mystical, magical, the desirous Cloven de Hoof. Now Cloven, lets call her Clove for short, also spake to the Gullibles of her craft and lo did post a pic, and spendid was the craft indeed.
But wait said one Gullible , what craft be she ? Seaforth 24 of Superior did Clove reply. What a coincidence thought a small fuzzy figure hidden in the shadows and using his mighty magic did look upon the Seaforth of Superior and there did appear before him an apparition....Voyageur.
Then from out of the darkness came a peal of thunder and a flash of lightning. Into the Gullible village strode the mighty Fuzz, Wombat of Antipodes, slayer of SockPuppets, he who wields the Stick of Ban and yea verily did Wombat fling said cloak from the the Cloven Hoofed one only to reveal....oh yes my children for she was indeed a shapeshifter...one moment Clove, the next the SmallBoatVoyageur, the next nowt but a slimey troll.
So there my children...beware the Troll for they will ensnare you given half a chance but Grandpappy Wombat is here to see you right.
Sleep Tight, Sweet Dreams.
Thanks to Imagine2Frolic for first picking up on this. Clove's boat did give me a hint to go on, the name on the side was something of a giveaway, but it was the identical IP addresses and the fact that the dumb truck posted a Clove post as SBV and then tried to delete it before reposting as Clove.
Memo to SBV/Clove....even deleted posts are visible to the Mod Squad.
