I was surprised to wake up this frosty Monday morning (-15 C) to find I have been sent a link to an even more frosty and very vicious PM that has been going on behind the scenes attacking numerous regular posters here on BP.
I am not interested in responding to that PM but because I am also mentioned in it and accused of a very serious matter which, if true, would rightfully result in an instant ban from BP, I wish to open that part up in public and invite all of you readers to tell me anything that you have against me or any suspicions you may have of my intentions or behaviour here.
Amongst all the other accusations in that PM, this was personally aimed at me and so I am publicising here:

I’m so sick of you clowns running around in a pack savaging everyone…Manx got a kicking the other night by two experienced insto posters (removed by moderators) for playing sock puppets in the threads (and I have proof as well) and he’s not the only 2 handed poster out in the playground… [/quote]
Unfortunately, or fortunately, I never got to see those posts that apparently gave me a “kicking”. Obviously they were deleted by the moderators very quickly. However, the accusation of being a sock puppet is, in my book, very serious indeed.
I did change my Username from Manxx to Simple_Simon a while back in response to the confusion over the new site structure and functions (a site facility available to anyone under “settings”) but all my posts under that new name also showed “Manxx” underneath my changed Username and there was never 2 Usernames open simultaneously. But I missed my old name and its continuity and requested the Administration to change it back to my original (and only) other Username: Manxx. This was done entirely openly and with the administration’s knowlege and consent:
But a sock puppet involves a single poster setting up two or more simultaneous usernames and using these to “talk” with each other to achieve certain aims such as encouraging innocent Newbies into scams, etc. Now that is something very different, deceitful and very sinister.
But @Trendswithbenefits is accusing me of precisely such activity in that PM to a 3rd party and claims to have proof and so I invite him here to present his proof in public.
At the same time I invite anyone and everyone else here, including the moderators and site owners, to raise any complaints or issues you may have against me so that I may be aware of them and answer to them in public.
I have posted over 1000 posts here with nearly 400 likes. My reasons for being here 1) to share my experiences and knowledge with others who are at a much earlier stage in their journey, 2) to gain some fresh insights from others and maintain knowlege of changes in the profession in general, and 3) to participate in a community focused on building skills and excellence in the field of forex and commodity trading.
The most part of my many posts are exactly this, a few more are purely humourous and a small number are directed at pointing out factual errors, deviations from site rules and protocols, and identifying potential scams.
I do not belong to any “gangs” or “packs” here on BP, I simply post what I feel to be truth and relevant (which, like with anyone else on this planet, may not always be so).
So let me have it, tell me what you don’t like and/or what naughty tricks you think I may be getting up to…
