I was recently going to make a reply to ‘ericinchina’ (Talk to China Daily › New Year gifts to BBS members post #114) with reference to some experiences with Porches and decided to visit his ‘homepage’.
It was here when I saw his messages that something greatly startled me ……..
Ericinchina joined the forum: Reg date: 2012-4-29 19:15, and he wrote something which I thought gave too many family details to others so I wrote a message to him:

Hi there and welcome to the forum .........
Thank you for your stories and as a long-term resident of China I can associate with these ideas myself .........
May I be so bold as to give a little advice here .......
There are some members who are very spiteful when it comes to attacking other posters and the writer of that thread is no exception. If you accidentally find yourself in disagreement they may well use this idea, (I have removed this part from the original post) posted by you to say some very nasty things about your wife as a means to hurt you.
Might I suggest that you press the 'edit' button at the lower part of the post and change that line to something more ambiguous .....
Kind regards ............
Enjoy the forum ......
When I visited ericinchina’s site theother day I found this message above that:

I am sure that expatter can testify as to who is the most spiteful, odious, obnoxious, amoral, presence on this forum is. IT`S ME!! What? You disagree? I can assure you that I am light-years more disagreeable than your disagreement with me. Did I just contradict the previous statement I made, or is someone losing the thread. HELL!! Its me losing the thread. I am the most self-deprecating person on this forum, or at least I was until someone self-deprecated me to a greater degree. Who was that ... ...
(I cannot read the rest)

As I do not know you, I can but guess.
Alicebrooke is now in ericinchina’s friends list ……….
It would seem clear to me that our‘Alice’ is very economical with the truth, and in fact this is outright slander from her towards myself.
When Alice joined I had her down as an eccentric with her ideas about being watched by the police and starting an underground revolution. Additionally, the savant like quality of her writings made me very wary that the ‘elevator did not go all the way to the top floor’, and she might well be one of those wandering around a community who needed better care ……..
I did have a minor spat with Alice over word syntax but nothing more than that in fact here are two mails from her:

Oi ! You. Wake up and attend to these matters.
alicebrooke 2012-6-9 17:44
And just where have you been, huh? Up to no good, I`ll bet! Your absence on this forum was noticed.
Well...in the meantime, I have managed to infuse some degree of order and a proper sense of decorum into forum proceedings, with varying degrees of success; the riff-raff insist - from time to time - in putting their noses in where they are not wanted. I put my foot down with a firm hand whenever I espy this type of tomfoolery by rebuffing their intrusions with certain alacrity. So...if you should receive any harassment to your good self, then just give me a holler, and I will deal with the problem, promptly and peremptorily.There`s no malice in Alice...yet - let us keep it that way.
One final point. Are you going to affirm my friend request, or are you just going to sit there gawping out of the window, or contemplating your navel while twiddling your thumbs, and dreaming of inconsequential idealised situations that ain`t never going to occur?
Yes, I know - Decisions! Decisions!
You will note these are dated February and June and her mail to ericinchina is dated August. I had no dealings with Alice this year and preferred to ignore her as can be seen by her mail, and I did not join her friends list.
Her scurrilous attack on me to a private mailbox tells me more about the ‘Malice of Alice’ than anything else could. When I checked her homepage it states there that she has 512 friends in this forum, and I would suggest that one should be very careful when dealing with this less than honest poster who has a mania for collecting posters to her friends list, and using the PM to make hidden and vociferous posts about other members.
You have been warned …….. !
