I have tried three times to join this forum tonight and it simply is impossible.

You truly do not want to mention the UK SS....

Within any international thread...

Not all the world...is as open and free as you.
Serious, life changing effects can follow "a slip of the lip."
A British academic who was accused of spying for the UK ... researching interviews recordings in Dubai to conduct research has been sentenced to life in jail.

When I saw this, I wondered if it was one of those test messages spambots send, and the lack of reply or action by the guy makes me think it was. It's pretty obvious how to join.

Probably the post, if not the whole thread, should be deleted.

He sounds British because of the reference to M16. His post came at 6:52 PM Mudcat time, which means he was typing at 11:52 at night his time. Maybe he was just too tired. Or something.

Let's leave this thread in place. I love some of the comments. Anyway, spambots don't usually give their email addresses. Why not allow Michael the benefit of the doubt and hope he comes back to introduce himself? Maybe we scared him off!

His email makes me think northern Ireland - initials + Derry at hotmail. Plausible enough to me.

Michael, ya still there? Hello from the opposite coast (Cork).

Ithere a motorway called the m16
The M16 motorway was the designation planned in the late 1960s and early 1970s for use on Ringway 3, a new motorway planned as part of the London Ringways Plan to run a circular route around London.[1]

Construction of the first section of the M16 began in 1973 between South Mimms and Potters Bar in Hertfordshire and opened in September 1975 with the temporary general purpose road designation A1178. During construction of the first section of the motorway, the majority of the Ringways plan was cancelled and, in 1975 the plans for Ringway 3 were modified to combine it with parts of another motorway, Ringway 4, the outermost Ringway.[1]

The M16 designation was dropped and the combined motorway was given the designation M25 which had originally been intended for the southern and western part of Ringway 4.The section of Ringway 3 west of South Mimms anti-clockwise around London to Swanley in Kent was cancelled and the section clockwise from Potters Bar to the Dartford Tunnel was constructed between 1979 and 1982. The section of Ringway 3 south of the river between Dartford and Swanley was constructed between 1974 and 1977.

The South Mimms junction was originally intended to be the end of a short spur connecting the A1 to the M16. The main alignment of the M16 would have continued south-west of the junction towards Radlett and Bushey. Evidence of this unbuilt alignment remains in the wide gap between the carriageways to the east of the South Mimms junction which would have been the point at which the spur would have separated from the continuing carriageway.

Michael Donnelly seems to live in Derry city? Not sure where Jim Dixon is, or any other Mudcatters on the island of Ireland (Ireland and N Ireland) but perhaps one of them might manage to contact Michael via some other folk network and invite him to try again, read Joe's invitation to email him? It would be such a shame if Michael has just given up altogether!(and not read all the MI6 type postings!!)
C'mon all you budding spies and agents-- you must be able to find a way of seeking out this potential 'catter!!!

a Hotmail address if memory serves -- no, I didn't copy it down or anything like that,
I just remember looking long and hard at the e-mail address
before it was erased from the original post.

Why not accept the opening post at face value?

Shane McBride has been drinking heavily ever since he was blocked from further "guest" posting in Mudcat, and it's all YOUR fault, you bastards!

(Come to think of it, though, he was drinking heavily before that happened too...)
