Default Question for all you CI$-heads

One of the boards I hang out in these days is the ADSLguide (adslguide.org.uk). We've had a new member join recently, Bill Ford, who says he was a Wizop in the UK forums on CI$. Anyone remember him?

I don't remember a Bill Ford, but at one time there were a lot of UK forums. I was Wiz on the UK Travel Forum.

Thanks, Kelvyn, me neither. I'm a little curious about him, he joined ADSLguide in December and has already posted 1252 messages (by comparison, I've posted about 700 in 15 months). However, right from the start, he's been busy pointing out he used to be a CI$ Wizop, in a totally irrelevant context. Makes me wonder...

There's a Bill Ford listed here: http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homep...r/CIS_Link.HTM (linked home page no longer active but that doesn't surprise me). I also found this page.

Of course both "Bill" and "Ford" are common names but it does seem there was a Bill Ford who was a sysop on a UK CompuServe forum.

Thanks for that. I'm fairly sure he was a sysop, but knowing who his boss was, I'm not so sure that he had the W flag. I'm just curious why he's so keen to impress with it... I must be getting cynical.

I doubt that, too. Must admit I never came across a Bill Ford, but then UKTF was not part of SM's "empire".

Hi Kelvyn

You remember SM too then. He didn't give much away as I recall, certainly not W flags.
