    All sorts of idiots get paid for writing all sorts of rubbish. Itís scarcely a badge of honour.

    So which books have you written? Iíll check them out (and their reviews).

    Also, how many usernames do you have on this board and what are they?

    As if.
    I've no need to prove anything to you.
    A crumb I'll throw in your general direction is that one article I wrote featured the family history of a poster on here. It was one of a series of my articles printed by the flagship Family History magazine. If the poster reads this, maybe they would confirm this is so, since you seem to disbelieve what I've said.
    Do you want to see the palms of my hands?

    I can personally vouch for this gentleman. Forgive the cliche but he certainly is a leader in his field. I'm not the poster referred to, but 'Cyclops' was - with amazing swiftness -able to resolve an historical genealogical conundrum that had plagued me for years, and managed to do so whilst listening to the City on the radio !
    Regarding books, remember that none other than Charles Dickens achieved fame and popularity not through 'books', but regular articles in magazines such as the 'Strand'.

    Which reminds me 'Cyclops', I may be back in touch !!

    Genuine question.

    What do you gain from having multiple accounts?

    Jimmy, this is a subject that's been debated often on here.
    I use a different name on Facebook and other social media sites - which some may understand.
    If I comment on Youtube, in common with many folk, I use a name that is not mine. The practice is never debated.
    No-one uses their real full name on here - so why the concern about 'multis'?
    Why do so many writers use nom de plumes?

    No, not remotely interested in your palms, but Iíd be interested to know what books youíve written. Authors are not usually shy to peddle their work, so Iím sure you wonít mind naming them.

    Not using your real name on here is not the same issue as having multiple accounts.

    It's a little difficult to understand why you would first write that my posts are 'rubbish' and 'ramble' and then want to know the books I've written.
    I'm not playing this game.

    Strange man. But then, in fairness, that had already been established.

    How is having multiple accounts an 'issue'?
    It's the posts that are the important thing on here.
    Who wrote them is totally immaterial.

    Re: My post about BBC Breakfast's montage of folk who had suffered bereavement in May 2020.......

    I'm thinking of changing my avatar.
    Is that an 'issue' too?
    Will folk not be able to pigeon-hole my posts as a result?

    'Issue' as in 'what is being discussed here'

    Anyway, if it's immaterial, why not tell us your other account names?

    Sketches by Boz.

    As this thread has mutated into questions about identities, my CCMB name is coined after Dewi Lewis who was sports editor of the Western Mail and wrote on Cardiff City and Wales football. He was also my uncle. He wrote under the name of Citizen and one book - A History Of Cardiff City - he wrote was under the name of Citizen. The cover is my profile picture.

    Weirdly, it was a post by Cyclops asking who Citizen was that showed up in a Google search one day that prompted me to make my first post on here to answer the question (after lurking for years).

    Hence, Citizen's Nephew.

    Why Dewi chose Citizen I don't know. I never got to ask him.

    I remember that.
    You've become a valued poster on here. Thanks for your contributions!

    It certainly wasn't my family (paternal) as they would have been more suited to crime watch rather than an established magazine. What a crew, child beaters, right wing loons, gangsters and a bit of the old 'family happiness' from my nearest and dearest from Devon.

    Can't say it was a pleasure researching them - more of an emotional rollercoaster - but we did establish that you are a sort of multi - albeit because there was a name change along the way.
    Did your missus ever get you to pose with your maternal knight ancestor at Llandaff Cathedral?
    The poster to whom I was referring, had worse than your ancestors. One was part of an Edinburgh gang who preyed on courting couples, blackmailing the man and having their way with the lady. They were finally taken to court when they hounded some poor soul to her death at the bottom of a cliff.

    My missus was more impressed by the fact that I have some family connection to Derek the weather man ( if I read correctly) every time that bastard is on the TV now all I get is 'look Dan, it's your relative' signed- Mr Widgery.

    I chose Splott Parker, living in Splott, being a St Albans & Bridgend St boy and spending a lot of time over the park as a kid and playing for the school and the Mission over there. Coincidentally it also resembled the name of a footballer. Living in Rumney now but I’ve never fancied the moniker Rumney Recker.
