Did he ever get a dog? And did his mother find out?

Really hoping this is the moment Charlie accidentally forgot to log out of his other account and the truth is revealed - that Charlie is Jason and always has been. Really hoping this. Demanding, even.

Especially as they'd then have to be an explanation for who it is in 'Jason's' Facebook videos.

I can't bring myself to read any of the posts because it would break my heart.

Of the members of the boy band that you don't think is the shittiest in the world, why have you only chosen to address No?

The signs were all there...

Although I was going for a Larsenesque tone, my question was genuine. I was searching my inbox for something unrelated and came upon a message from Corby saying he was getting a dog soon and wanted to keep it secret from his mother. So I thought everyone would benefit if the truth about this sordid affair was finally out in the open.

Yes, I did get a dog (which you would already know if you were paying attention). My mum still doesn't know though, she just thinks one of my children is slightly hairier and smellier than the others.

Since he has his own thread, there's no point in starting a new one. Why is it that on Corby's profile page, it says "User is inactive:Profile details changed"? I think he said something on Facebook about changing his e-mail address or something and this needed to be verified or something. But this was ages ago. Why is his account still in limbo?

It went inactive a while ago so I reactivated it, but it immediately deactivated again when I did so I'm assuming he deliberately deactivated his account. :-(

You assume unwisely. The first email change was a typographical error. As you can tell, I wasn't that bothered though, I just switched to posting more regularly under my "Fred Mumford" account instead.

But anyway, presumably it came up as a request for a change of e-mail address rather than a simple "deactivation" so why was it left in limbo even if it did happen twice?

Nope, the email notifications we get in the c4c ivory tower go along the lines of 'this account has recently become deactivated'

Anyway, Jon's back now and has learned his lesson, so we're all cool again.

Damnit, I didn't. I almost suggested it once as a joke but then the two of you started posting on the same thread and I dismissed the idea. Of course, Jon might be just pretending to be Fred Mumford and the real Fred Mumford is somebody else, like me for instance.

I assumed you guys were talking about realising that the first e-mail change was a typographical error. The Fred Mumford bit was just a footnote.

Sounds like a bit of a crap system (not that anyone here is to blame as it would be the forum software). I was considering changing my e-mail address associated with my account here, but it sounds like a bit of a risk!

Accept it and move on Ryan. He's broken our hearts and he's only going to gloat about that from here on in.

Well I suppose technically no, it's not. There will be other people present that I cannot possibly bring myself to be in the company of. I don't really want to say any more than that, but they probably know who they are.

No, it's not, but that sounds better than "I hate you all".
But we all hate you too, and that doesn't stop us from wanting to have our annual meet-up.
