It may be true that there is no such thing as bad publicity, but this sure does come close...

Hi Damien and Bob
I would like to clarify to you and to all the other folks reading this post that 'bryncanfly' is not me. I have many happy and successful past students, I have no need to make one up.

What disturbs me about your posts is your abundant willingness to say very negative things about my program and about me personally without really knowing anything about it. I am happy for you to disagree with my philosophy and to question my approach. I am all for some open debate and this what this forum should be all about.

However your decision to put me down as a person and call me liar is baffling. This is not the sort of behavior I expect to see on a forum especially from a forum moderator. Bob surely your job is to prevent the forum degenerating into mud slinging and personal attacks certainly not to instigate them.

Anytime you log onto a forum your IP address is logged. It is fairly easy to figure out, just type "IP address" into Google, and it will return your IP adress. Not exactly hacking.

You and "bryn" previously posted from the exact same IP address, and not a known proxy server. Proof you are the same? No. But quite a coincidence, especially considering the empty profiles registered within two days of each other.

It seems kind of unrealistic to be able to become a guide in two years when it takes many years of experience to pass the most basic AMGA exams.
