    Why does Prof Rothbart post on this forum, when he should know by now, that all he gets is people having a go at him, and critisising him? Doesn't he ever get the message. Mind you, I think that Mark Russell went down to gutter level by caliing him a "w×××××"!

    Normally I have a lot of time for Mark and his debates, but that was a very childish thing to say!

    Mark, if the judge in your upcomming case googles your name and sees that you have been using such expletives, then that does not create a good impression now does it!?
  2. Simon:

    Do you actually know anything about Rothbart and his history? I think not.

    Personally, when I saw Mark's posting with that photo of the surfer dude holding a bottle of pills with the inscription underneath the photo, I laughed harder than I had for nearly two weeks.

    Thank you Mark for telling it like it is!!
  3. Freedom of expression still exists. For now. Mark is free to opine that BR is a w*****. As you Simon are free to express your views on Mark's comments.

    Although we are, very sadly, moving to a place where "I don't agree with what you say and / or how you say it" is being replaced by "you can't say that". Which is IMO, a very bad thing for society.
  4. Sorry to disappoint, Simon. In mitigation it is not often I set out to insult, but with this character, I make an exception. If you have been unfortunate enough to be spammed by Rothbart on a regular basis and you have been even more unfortunate to succumb to curiosity and read his advertorials, you might understand why some of us feel this way towards him. He is a pedlar of lies, false hope and dishonesty and more than most, brings our profession into disrepute on a scale rarely seen before. Sometimes the Internet exploits in a terrible way. I always shout for freedom of speech, but with that comes the right to reply - equally uncensored. I'm sorry that on this occasion you felt it childish.

    I would think whoever is on the bench in London Magistrates next month will have heard much worse in the course of their normal day. If they were familiar with Rhubarb and his sordid practice, they would probably concur.

    Kind regards

    If the judge takes into account Mark's use of expletives on this forum he should not be on the bench.

    Mark, you should apologise (To all the wxxxers out there who don't want to be tarbrushed with Rothbarts credentials) !

    Please get the title right. It is Professor DOCTOR Rothbart (as well as mountebank, charlatan, quack and all those other titles previously listed)........ Oh, and W#####r if you feel so inclined.

    All the best

  8. Perhaps I should have been more discrete and taken a musical line..... Ivor Biggun (of course)
