IMO there is no witch hunt.  Tony and others have researched this man and his website and reported their findings. 

Witch hunt don't make me laugh!

Seems to me a certain few are making a witch hunt against Tony because of his research about this man.


Exactly, and one wonders why. Where do their "interests" lie I wonder? If people want to support the creation of images portraying women floundering to an almost certain death as "creative" or "artistic", well that's their free will being exercised, but just think how you'd feel if your wife or daughter or mother had her picture incorporated into such imagery for a bunch of fetishists on the internet. It would take on a different complexion then.

First thing I would do is google the name of a person being brought into the family and if I found that they had what I believe to be an" unsavoury hobby" I would certainly avoid that person and strongly advise the family member to do the same.

I just think it's a pity that an intelligent contributor gets thrown off because someone decides he/she is being abusive. What I saw was Veritas's growing frustration with people not dealing head-on with points he/she (can I stop that and just say 'he'?) made. And behind all that, a discomfort with the speed at which people concluded TR to have used his (unproven) photoshop skills to manipulate key MM images (unproven).

It was also a pity that as soon as the majority here didn't like his line of questioning (at least it seemed this way to me), they started to find fault with him: his intelligence, his supposed terrible insults - to the point where people started saying, whether joking or serious I don't know, that he = Blacksmith. Someone else decided that because he didn't agree with the majority, it must be proof that his agenda is to stop Tony Bennett asking questions about Rickwood.

Put another way, Veritas being booted off this forum is likely to to support the point Blacksmith was making in his most recent piece.

What artists create is beyond our control Smokeandmirrors - we either like it or we don't, or of course we might just be completely indifferent.  To imply our indifference equates to our having deviant interests of our own is a bit harsh.  As juicy as the subject matter is, I have not visited the deviant art site because there are other aspects of this case that interest me more. As indeed do wider debates outside of this forum.
  
Unfortunately the notion of 'women in peril' has formed part of art, literature and popular culture since time began, and there may even be cave drawings of women tied to rocks while giant predators loomed.  It is a fantasy firmly entrenched in our culture, indeed it is dominant in cultures throughout the world, usually ending with the Prince rescuing the Princess and everyone living happily ever after. Rickwood's strange hobby may simply be a follow on from those ideas, though I don't recall anyone mentioning any heroic rescue.

I am not defending him, he appears to be within the inner circle and I hope that Scotland Yard are investigating this aspect thoroughly.

I think your basic premise is wrong here. You speak of 'artists'  so I presume you think Rickwood is an artist. Drawing a picture doesn't make you an artist anymore than writing a poem makes you a poet. Or taking photographs makes one a photographer.
Rickwood has learned to press a number of buttons to create images so we can see the results of his limited imagination.
That's it.

There are many people who can draw and paint  - such as the street artists who will draw a portrait in half an hour but that's not art. Art is like a language you can learn but if you have nothing to say it's not art. This applies equally to the art of writing which is why biographies rarely if ever, win prizes, It's writing - such as 'madeleine'  but it ain't literature.

Ah! So she has a 'forum persona'. So she develops a special identity for the forum?

she is a very clever (brainy) person.

I've never seen evidence of that on this forum. I saw someone who tied herself in knots over Rickwood. I saw someone who was capable of a great deal of venom against others. I saw someone who easily became angry and used convoluted long paragraphs to express that anger  

She is a bit fiery

Unpleasant, and rude to others

but she's an ok kind of woman.

According to 'BlondSurfer'

Well, no, there aren't

Dominant?

usually ending with the Prince rescuing the Princess and everyone living happily ever after. Rickwood's strange hobby may simply be a follow on from those ideas,

Merely a 'cultural thing', then?

though I don't recall anyone mentioning any heroic rescue.

Indeed, very much to the contrary, Cristobell, giving his 'artwork' titles such as:

"Helpless"

"Sinking fast"

"OMG!"

"Chillin'", and

"No escape".

I second that Tigger.
The production of some images out of fetish impulses of woman sucked into quicksand does not an artist made, neither is that sort of fetish mainstream.

BlondSurfer's history here:

1. Joined 30 January 2012. Six days before my contempt of court trial began. Made a post saying s/he was 'going to have a nosey around'.

2. On the same day, made five posts on five different games threads - then never contrributed to them again.

3. A four-word post on 27 October 2013.

4. Then lies about Veritas being a 'very' clever woman. 

That's her/his 8 posts so far!

I knew Veritas from "The Mirror forum" if it is someone using her name then that is not my fault.The way the poster posted came across as the Veritas that i knew from the poster i knew from the "Mirror" and other forums.

I am not sure why you are being so precious over the use of the word Art.  You state the work of street artists is not 'art' - perhaps you can tell us what it is?

Perhaps you could also tell us how to distinguish between what can be classified as art and what cannot.  Does a painting become Art once it has been recognised by the establishment? Until then does it remain in the 'not art' pile?

To be honest I dislike elitism in art and music, to me a splodgy drawing a 5 year old brings home from school is as much a precious work of art as a Rembrant.

You don't consider Rickwood an artist, your prerogative, but some do, it matters not one jot to me either way.
