Thank you David. I sent a PM to both Maggie & NGB yesterday. It might be better if they respond to it on the forum, rather than to me personally. So everyone knows the rules. 

My view is a moderator/s should inststantly interject and take assertive action on a thread if a poster calls someone a liar or troll. This has always correctly been the case.

NGB was online and I asked him to interject straight after the first post saying I was lying, in my replies 18 & 20. I got no response from NGB resulting in the abuse escalating over the next 4 hours.

Another thread was created titled 'Adam is a liar and a troll'. This thread was taken down but no ban implemented. Thank you NGB.

Maggie posted on the thread in reply 31 and I assummed that the abuse would stop. However I was continued to be called a 'liar' and 'troll' in more posts as the poster disagreed with Maggies post.  I asked for assistance from Maggie on the thread in three posts, but got no response and the thread was locked.

I very rarely post on the other posters threads, 2 out of the last 15 at the last count. However always respond to 'Sheila scenarios' and did so here.

I used the 'Court of Appeal' as a source to show Nevill was shot upstairs 4 times. Two posts later I was told my posts are 'a form of lying' & called a liar several more times over the next 4 hours.  I disagree but even if the poster believes this, posting such is extreme goading and serves no purpose. Hopefully this won't continue to happen on the rare occasions I post on his threads.

I hope everything will be resolved this morning.
I locked the post because I had personal reasons why I had to leave the forum one of which was that it was midnight and I had been travelling all day.
In acknowledgement of David's post, I expect Ngb will answer this when he is next on the forum.  Thanks

Imo there is a difference between suggesting someone is not being completely open or is manipulating information to suit their own argument and opinions and abusive name .ca'll ling whatever words are used to do that.    The forum would soon fall into total chaos is all posters verbally abused those they disagreed with.  Imo 'Liar' is an abusive term.

I agree.  It is fine to demonstrate that a poster has been illogical or misleading, or is totally wrong about an aspect of evidence or law, but that can be done without accusing the poster of being a liar.

This is clown world stuff.  I genuinely do not believe you have any interest in a serious discussion of the case.

The point made about Adam is very obvious.  He is a brazen liar and a troll.

Please ban me.  I have asked you to delete my account before.  I sent the request three times through the admin function.
