    Right, this is going nowhere fast, so it's getting locked. My previous post is now the standing policy on posting pictures - if you're going to go making accusations, blank out their faces and other identifying features.

    I edited the pictures to conceal the faces of the two gentlemen involved,

    I even contacted ZULU (NAVAL MODERATOR) by P.M. to get his opinion with

    posting the pictures, he said that the pictures could be posted either with faces covered

    or uncovered as they are taken in the public domain, I chose to used the covered version.

    Two members here at I.M.O. feel slighted that I chose to post these pictures, they have

    inferred that:

    1. my brother stalked these men, -
    Well he did take a picture of two elderly gents - you never once mentioned the fact he asked them for their permission- and he then sent by electronic means the pictures to you
    2. there is a campaign against them, -
    evidently you have
    3. that I am possibly not who I claim to be, (an exer with over 21 year service,)
    go on then give us your Bio
    4. now demands for my name and address.
    Sure why not- if you have the bollix to publish their pictures openly and anomymously accues these lads- then at least have the decency to print your name on here and let the lads come after you- rather than IMO as a whole
    (supposedly so the gentlemen can address this issue if they happen to read the thread).

    Exactly

    Yours, Connaught Stranger.

    Right, listen knaves, for I am admin, and my word be law around these parts, and thus I speaketh: NO IDENTIFYING PEOPLE IF YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE ACCUSATIONS ABOUT THEM.

    "I saw a person wearing medals they might not be entitled to" is fair enough, but "here's their address, passport, car registration and a list of their fears", isn't allowed. This isn't arrse, we're not going to allow "walt hunting", as neither boomer or myself really fancy getting sued.
    I think you're right Barry, this one is flogged to death anyway, it's just starting to degenerate. Maybe it should be locked.

    For your information Mr. Legal Expert, I have the original uncropped picture,
    that was taken in the car Park of the Davitt College,
    in Castlebar on the 7th of October 2008.

    I woundlnt mind your campaign against these two lads if they appointed them selves

    as holders of the DSM-

    but you publicly try and humiliate 2 elderly gents anonymously for wearing an extra service medal

    at least have the bollix to post your name and address on here so that these 2 old boys

    can have a chance to defend themselves
    You, obviously are not paying attention to what the moderator of the Naval section, ZULU, posted here, he has no problem with my post and told me so, as the pictures were taken in the "PUBLIC DOMAIN" to hear you carry on one would think one of these gentlemen is related or known to you

    You are NOT a Moderator, so do not try to act like one.:wink:

    Under the rules of the Forum, as far as I can see I am not required to post my name and address, there is no campaign, or attempt to humiliate, and it makes no difference if it were a D.S.M. or a Irish Military Service medal, the principle remains the same.

    If you did not get it as an official award DON'T WEAR IT IN PUBLIC!

    Its quite simple, when you are in the Public Domain i.e. outside, on the Public street, at a Public event

    (not including members of the Police, security forces etc.. on active duty)

    then you and they have no privacy,

    if that was not the case, then nobody could take a picture outside of anything.

    Hopefully, I explained it simply enough for you to comprehend,

    but if you need clarification then feel free to ask.

    Once they placed themselves in the Public domain, then they have no privacy with regards their actions.
    Please explain how they placed themselves in the public domain and sacrificed their right to privacy. Surely not by walking out their front fcuking door.

    I will post this if I feel a need to post this on a website connected with Irish Military matters, as the two old bluffers were at some stage in their lives connected to the Irish military. My brother in fact never mentioned anything about what anybody was wearing,
    I noticed it when cropping the pictures he sent.
