Confirm comment report request


In response to your comments. I did not want it published on the portals (and Drobe is the only one to ignore my polite request) is because its not the full story. There were no details about dates, times or even if it was even certain it would run. Someone asked on a newsgroup if there was any news and that the website was still showing last years details. I responded that there were problems and that a proper announcement would be made shortly depending on the outcome of some things being resolved.

Drobe jumped the gun.

As for me enforcing my copyright. Emails and usenet postings are the copyright of the person sending them in law. case law has already established this.

As to some of the other comments, I know they were public statements I made them but also asked publicly and politely that they don't put the incomplete information up on a portal as they would get the full story in a few days. But like a lot of the modern *media* they decided lets ignore the important bits and publish anyway.

A couple of further more general points - I don't have to run a Wakefield Show. If I decide I don't want to do it or can't be bothered - thats it. No one else takes over.

I devote a major amount of my time including holidays to preparing and working on providing YOU with a show.

Since a number of people have decide I am not only stupid, etc., I feel I have to consider whether I want to continue spending my time on a show.

As a result any public announcement is now likely to be further delayed. While I think about it for a few days.
