I'd better be careful when sending to the Forum that I don't 'Post' send twice.  ;)

Pretty sure he turned up on SGL Forum from what he said in his introduction about being banned from another site and Astronomics, then some-one posted up this link (which is in the first post) and I thought he had been quiet over the last week or so and now notice he and all his posts have disappeared.

He is probably in prison now, but looks like he has been banned from SGL too.

Blimey 2 years prison 3 years parole and a $30K fine!
They take crime really seriously don't they? I wonder what they would do to someone who really screwed things up, like closed down an airport - I like their thinking.

Synta mount, a bunch of telescopes and a shed (on wheels).
