On The 28/05/13 the herald printed an article under the heading, "Yes vote would lead to boom in investment , says SNP research" Separatist campaigner Iain Lawson posted saying.

"I believe Scotland through its already high reputation in education and innovation is even better placed to make the most of new opportunities that Independence would create"

I replied as follows,

"Was this "high reputation in education and innovation" achieved as a result of Scotland being part of the UK or was it established more than 300 years ago Iain? Just asking, ken? 

My comment was banned by the Herald! Despite over 300 comments on this article being printed!

Aye but Councillor, you, Sir, are a roaster of the top order, you can't blame them!

Instead of whining like a big spoilt jessie about it here where three men and a dog see it, I suggest you take it up with the Herald moderation staff who in your opinion 'have it in for you'.
They are just an email away.

My posts are not pre-moderated like yours are.
Ask yourself why.
Is it because I am just such an easy going sweetie pie?
Is it because I am a secret moderator? (I bet you give that one credence)
Is the Herald just a nest of mad cybernats?
Or is it because your behaviour and language towards posters has been deplorable in the past?

You brought the moderation policy upon yourself because you could not keep it civil and could not stick to the rules and they were (are) working overtime to keep you in check.
The evidence of how you speak to folk is all over this 'blog'.
The Herald won't tolerate that.
It's your own fault and this drivel is just making you look just a bit sad.
Hell mend ye Terry.

Have a nice day.

Come off it, Kelly...at one time or another, in your roles as Judge, jury, prosecutor and executioner,you have barred all those who regularly comment on this blog, including me.

If you can't take it, don't dish it out.

I am displaying posts t6hat the Herald have refused to print to let people judge for themselves, why do you have a problem with that?

3 men and a dog now joined by an snp boor with delusions of mediocrity. I take it this means that you have been lying about not reading my Blog? You lack integrity Robert, and have done since the first day I came across you because you can’t be trusted, you are a nationalist prototype whose default position is lies and sneering.

How does one get hold of such intimate information on the reasons behind someone else being ‘moderated’ Robert? Do you have special privileges or is it; as is more likely another illustration of your readiness to lie when your arguments lack substance.

I am reproducing posts of mine that the Herald have refused to print to allow people to decide for themselves whether they have good reasons for doing this. The fact that this exercises you to such an extent that you have exposed yourself as a serial liar is something that only you can explain.

You seem to be unravelling, I blame myself for indulging you.

Robert Dickson said...

Hello Terry,

I think I told you on the forum that a good friend of mine who does follow your blog for a laugh gave me a heads up that you were ranting on about the big bad Herald doing you over so I looked in and posted just as I have done again to see your laughable responses.
No mystery.
As to how I know about the moderation policy?
I asked.
They merely asked me to avoid you when possible (good advice) unless I wanted to end up on the naughty step with you.
Hardly news I would have thought since you can see that they (your posts) don't appear immediately but I can see through the Disqus system that you have replied to me......even though most get deleted.

Don't let any of that detract from your paranoia and sense of self importance though!

Further Terry.....I never lie to you.
I see no reason to lie to you even if it was my habit which it isn't.
But then you know that and you also know that saying that I do will get at me because you know I value integrity.
Well sorry Terry but there is a caveat to that.....I need to have a modicum of respect for those who slander my character for it to trouble me.
You don't even register there I'm afraid.
You can take that or leave it....I REALLY don't care.
But I do enjoy pushing your buttons.
You are so very, very easy. :D

"an snp boor with delusions of mediocrity"

I might have delusion Terry, but I'm no longer an SNP member.
They don't need my money anymore which is the only reason I was a member in the first place so I let my membership lapse.
Unlike you, I have no slavish devotion to a party as a way of life...they serve me...not the other way around.
If the SNP disappeared tomorrow I wouldn't give a toss they are merely a vehicle for an ambition in my book...your wee world on the other hand would collapse if your party crutch was removed.
This posting on your blog is fun!
I might stick around......or not....I'll see how dirty I feel.

Not even my dug would stoop to read this paranoid drivel! You are a sad man Terry, get over it. Get a real life - I will, by no longer wasting time on the ravings of an old codger. Try and get some peace.

I have dealt with people like you before and most of them crash and burn after a while but this behaviour by you is quite unusual and quite spectacular.

Yes you did tell me about your friend and it was an obvious lie. Stating that you value integrity along with your claims about moderation are even more obvious lies. You are going to pieces Robert.

"Yes you did tell me about your friend and it was an obvious lie. Stating that you value integrity along with your claims about moderation are even more obvious lies. You are going to pieces Robert."

You are trying too hard Terry...it smacks of desperation.
I am so happy.

Robert Dickson said...

"Stating that you value integrity along with your claims about moderation are even more obvious lies."

Prove me a liar then Terry....send Calum the digital editor an email and ask why you are moderated so harshly.
His name is Calum MacDonald btw....I know that will annoy you as it sounds a bit teuchterish doesn't it?
The mate that sent me the message saying you were having a meltdown on your blog is called Rolf...he is a Dane who has spent 25 years here...he thinks you are hilarious, but you can deny his existence again and it will make his day!
You are a great laugh Terry...thanks a bunch!

You are snp Robert, the rest is drivel, designed to big yourself up.

If you are incapable of sustaining an argument and too timid to identify yourself what is the point of you being here anyway?

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

Robert Dickson said...Thursday, June 06, 2013 9:30:00 pm

4 or is it 5 comments to a Blog which is beneath a man of your obvious talents Robert?

That's not the response of someone who is "happy" It's more like someone who is twisting himself into a black knot of rage, frustration and inadequacy.

Robert, I do not need to talk to anyone to know that you are a liar, I know how many posts I send and your version of that number is a lie.

I also have a mate who is a German called Gunter, he does not find you hilarious in the least he advises giving you a clear berth though. He finds your decision to hold yourself up to ridicule by this latest move of yours to be quite worrying and unhealthy.

Robert Dickson said...

"Robert, I do not need to talk to anyone to know that you are a liar, I know how many posts I send and your version of that number is a lie. "

I have a permanent record which I will reproduce here if you like of all the post you have replied to me on.
The last time I counted them it which was a couple of weeks ago and over the period of two to three weeks you had replied to me nearly 70 times...of which a handful appeared.
You really need to get abreast of technology before you tell lies Terry.
The records don't lie and Disqus keeps long, long records.
You have slowed down your output to me as most if not all of your posts get deleted (that must be annoying) and you seem to be targeting Mr Lawson for your obsession now.
So if you want to make an arse of yourself here (a bigger arse than usual that is) I will happily publish each and every reply notification with your name attached with dates to show you up for what you are.....obsessive and a liar.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

I urge you to seek help Robert, this is becoming very unhealthy. I note your reference to me sending 140 posts to you in the last month? while you have just sent me 10 lengthy comments in 45 mns. as I said 'unhealthy'

I have had posts in reply to you blocked on the Lord Strathclyde article but if you check my post on the same article to Mr. Peffers you'll see it has been printed, can you try explaining that?

I have also printed several posts on my Blog showing examples of comments of mine which have also been blocked. Since you told me that the reason for my posts to you being blocked were content and bad language (inside knowledge or more lies?) perhaps you could look at these and tell me in your opinion if they were blocked for the same reason, I will be providing others to let people see if the Herald is acting fairly and you rationally.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

Here is an example of one of your posts which of course was printed and my reply which was of course not printed, this can be read on my Blog as well. Perhaps you could have a go at explaining why, don’t just claim it’s nothing to do with you, I want your opinion as to what it was in the language or anything else which caused it to be blocked?

The Herald article was headed “Indy Scotland ‘would need to guarantee savings” ’Sunday 26 May 2013.

Your post which was printed was as follows.

“An independent Scotland will need to be able to guarantee that umbrellas will still be available for purchase in the event of it raining.
We have the right to know this stuff”

And my reply to your post which was not printed was as follows.

“Shock news, snp/separatist/cybernat concedes that Scotland would still get rain even if separation happens. This is serious, what else will he admit to, beer will not be free after all? No cigarette trees? no soda water fountains?

This is quite amusing Robert but; not nearly as funny as when you try to be serious”.
