So did I. As I only currently represent myself I don't have to be careful 
what I say in this forum! Although I am open to offers;)

Agree with Brenda and that's why when inducting staff I always say if
you don't want to look silly "don't write it down".....

Unless posters say a few words about the contents of a link they will be
lost - unless it is Friday pm and they are about to go home. It will
also be lost if one does a search in the Archive.

Doreen will, no doubt, respond that it was just a throwaway thing.

In fact, the BBC link below indicates that "however, Mr Page has
obtained a police file on him through the Data Protection Act and is
unhappy with some of its contents".

The report suggests that he is on a "homophobic incidents register". I
think his complaint is probably more than about him being fed to the
crocodiles - which would really make him look rather silly.
