Many of our readers will remember John Taylor, the basset-hound-faced, chemtrails-obsessed Scouser who distinguished himself in August 2015 with a video in which he used a gun to shoot holes into a photograph of RD. In an all-pink room. With Duran Duran playing in the background.
Maybe you had to be there.
In any case, John was never a truly important player in promoting the Hampstead hoax, but he seemed to pop up now and again, usually spouting death threats. And he had a real
hard on hate on for RD:
For a while it seemed as though he might have given up, but the recent discovery of last year’s video featuring RD and his two children, who’d won a prize from eBay for the the kids’ business, seems to have set John off again.
On Sunday we noticed that the comments section on that video had gone berserk, led by John, who saw fit to share his bizarre sexual fantasies:
(Okay, we have to admit that this one made us laugh. Yes, John, we’re perfectly happy to hear the word “Jesus”. We think he was a fine chap with some very good ideas, but he probably would have had his doubts about you.)(This one was addressed to another long-time Hampstead pusher, Kim Lawrence, who’d popped in to say hello.)Oh, John. Get help. Seriously.
Of course some of John’s friends piled on…but then, something strange happened: early yesterday evening, all the vile comments disappeared. All was calm once more.
It didn’t last, though: within an hour or so, two of John’s friends had made their feelings known to eBay:Michelle, who is the mother of young children and (believe it or not) a trained nursery nurse, seems to misunderstand one of the basic premises of social media: the eBay channel belongs to that company, and they can choose to remove any posts they please, at their leisure. They have absolutely no obligation to John Taylor, Michelle Reid, or any of their deluded friends, even if those friends chose to make fools of themselves by calling eBay customer services.
Darkishcloud, please see above re eBay not owing you or any of your whackadoo friends the time of day.
Tune in tomorrow, when eBay will most likely remove the latest round of Nutjob-o-grams from its own video. We can hardly wait.
