Happy 3rd anniversary CMOMM

Post by Tony Bennett on 25.11.12 10:30

It was sometime during the morning of 25 November 2009 that the forum-owner = Get 'em Goncalo established this forum.

I would like to send congratulations and a note of appreciation for her decision to set up the forum and also my thanks to all, especially the moderators, who have maintained and developed this forum and made it what it is today.

Some here may not know that 25 November 2009 was also the day that a total of 16 High Court undertakings were forced out of me by the financial power of the McCanns and those ever-mysterious people who back them (financially and otherwise) behind the scenes. Get 'em Goncalo originally set up this forum as a personal gesture of support to me, at a time when I was facing not only the might of the McCanns and Carter-Ruck but also other untrue accusations. I shall always be grateful to her and others who also stepped forward to help me at around that time.

Eight members joined on 25 November 2009, I was one of them. 'candyfloss' joined two days later, and has since then undoubtedly been the mainstay of this forum. I am also personally grateful to her. I have been aware of some difficult issues she, the forum-owner and other mods have had to resolve, mainly from those who do not wish this forum well and resent its success. It's a great tribute to the patience of both her and Get 'em Goncalo - and their commitment to developing this place as one where the many mysteries surrounding the case can be discussed - that it has not only survived but continues to prosper.

Today the forum has 2045 members. Today the forum has been going for 1,096 days. That's a joining rate of over 13 a week. Last August (2011) it became the most popular Madeleine McCann discussion forum anywhere on the net, and has remained so. In the run-up to the date of publication of the paperback edition of 'madeleine', it reached its highest number of visitors at any one time: 678 on 25 April 2012.

I'm going to put up a poll about the forum and hope that other members of the forum will add their own notes of appreciation for what Get 'em Goncalo and cadyfloss have achieved in the past three years.

Happy Birthday!

It was also a memorable date for me - the last time I was at work, which was driving me completely round the bend!

Well done to everyone involved with the forum.

I'm sending you a humble pie. It comes with no additives or preservatives. There are no candles or icing. It's a simple pie that always tastes good even when other things are on offer or distract. It sums up for me the diligence, courage and perseverence that you have to find justice for Madeleine. Happy Birthday.

I am in awe of the time/effort/research knowledge put in by Jill and candyfloss.

Three years of dedicaton to maintaining this forum regardless of personal issues.

Ever wonder what would happen if both of them did not give their time? I'm not sure how long this forum would exist. It's an 'every day' thing to keep this forum under control, not just to pop in when they have time. The commitment is constant. How many people would be able to give that commitment, never mind WANT to?

My congratulations is more than just a casual comment. It is with an honest appreciation that this forum is the place that is, and has been, here for us for the last 3 yrs!.

Thanks also to all the members for the wealth of information and opinions that will one day contribute to the closure of the investigation.

If, as the police files reflect, Madeleine is dead...then I hope that one day she can be found, with the world, (and her family), able to grieve and she can be laid to rest in peace and with the dignity that she deserves.

Thanks to Complete Mystery of Madeleine McCann to help towards achieving that day!

Thanks also Tony for this thread, and all the research that you contribute. Good luck to you also for your upcoming trial! Your commitment to expose the truth is beyond what many realise. Thank you!

Meanwhile, in the spirit of Christmas, here is my little contribution to you all!

Congrats to the forum!

Just one thing though.

OK, we know now that Edward Smethurst has been holidaying in Praia da Luz for more than a decade.

We know that Robert Murat lives, or lived, in Praia da Luz.

We know that Gerry McC looked most uncomfortable when asked if he already knew Murat.

We know that Martin Smith knows Murat well.

We know that Smethurst and Brian Kennedy have close links with both Manchester and Cheshire Police (through Steve May of Palladium Enterprises and so forth).

But when are you going to examine all those golfing holidays near Praia da Luz, organised by ACC Steve Heywood and others by the Greater Manchester Police Golfing Association?

Just a little tip to be going on with!

Love and light
