I think that's a bit unfair! Isn’t using a name like Cruise dot Fanatic secretive? Are you someone who regularly contributes but when it comes to making a point, you hide behind a ‘secondary’ name when the going gets tough? There was nothing secretive about my question to Neil, as anyone who is a regular reader to this site would know the references to A & a, as they were probably the biggest contributor to this site up until a couple of months ago.

A of N is alive and well and communicating on the other side. Have spoken to him and although he keeps up with this side prefers to write there. You could try Albert Ross. regards. D & J.

It's a very dark place controlled by Colin Fry who only allows four or five people in at a time. Admission is only for those who cruised the Mary Celeste all those years ago & pre paid their gratuities. I've said too much....Aaarrghh!!!
