I read about that on the thisisyesterday board. She really made a name for herself.

Yeah, it's all very odd. One of her posts here say something like, *he* was the lyricists, there are tons of musicians. She doesn't get that what they were is all four of them as a whole, and what they were is a part of what they are now. Does she even like music? She makes Richey sound like a poet rather than a band's lyricist. Aye, very immature.

I'm not choosing any "side", if that's what she's up to. What's the point of that? I don't even think that's possible.

Thisisyesterday was where I saw it too and it all came back to me. I'm still in touch with a friend I made on that forum, but he's totally forgotten her!

What gets me is that she's been pursuing this vendetta for years now. I kinda hope the band have restraining orders against her, never mind redactions in her stupid book.

So much this.

Here

There's really not much there. Most of it seems to be one person replying to themselves (unless I'm mistaken in how names are displayed there).

I remember Wymark from the archives chat room. I don't know the others, although they mention Slann and Nigel who were also from AoP. That message board's like something you'd see on a youtube video about weird sites. For YEARS Wymark's been posting random crap there. Never ending...

I remember the day the official forum was removed (I moved house and when I got in the new one it was gone!). Must have been the summer of 2006. Has Nigel really been posting messages like that to himself all that time?

Velocitygirl 21-02-2019 16:02

Yeah, I went away for a weekend and when I got back the old forum had poofed into the ether. I heard some story about porn being posted there so Sony pulled the plug on it. But how true that is, I have no idea.

And yes, I remember Wymark from there too. Wasn't there some kind of split when he and a few others were banned from the official forum, so they set up another? There was a lot of drama there, so Sara wasn't alone.

Ah, the good old days!

I'm not one to talk but I wish people would take a minute to think about what they've written before clicking the post button.

No! That SHR might be accusing them of that! No ones accusing the band of anything

There was all sorts going on at the end... there was all sorts of allegations of bullying and racist behaviour, some of it allegedly coming from the volunteer moderators. And there were a few mass bannings which resulted in splinter forums forming.

But it was definitely a very interesting place and kept me entertained during my post uni unemployed days!

The official forum scared the shit out of me :lol:

Seriously?! This is getting crazy now. I really, really hope it's the band suing the ever loving shit out of the authors.

Speaking of authors, we've focused exclusively on Sara. But who is Leon Noakes? Is he just some jobbing biographer, like Rob Jovanovic? Or is he another embittered ex-Manics fan who has latched on to Sara and Rachel?

This HAS to be because of a legal battle.
And I'm really hoping this thread has been looked at by the band and they see the support they have.

There's no other reason for it to get delayed. It has missed the all important anniversary of his disappearance that it tried to hit, so it's not due to a better release date. The book has been printed because there is some in circulation. So it has to be legal complications.
I really hope all the edits are costing them money and will force them to cancel.

sofarsideways 21-02-2019 20:02

Agree with all of that beautifuldisortion.

I don’t think we know anything about Leon Noakes, seems to be rather the silent partner so far. Whether he was brought in for research or writing purposes I have no idea, but have to wonder at the quality of writing we’ve seen so far from a book with potentially 3 authors...
