    Computer equipment and documentation seized from his home, his place of
    work and his father's home in Cheshire

    Oops... we seem to have missed *his place of work*

    No worries...

    As if they would discuss such matters with the general public.

    And where was it seized from? His locker or did they take some VM-specific
    equipment? The site wasn't hosted by VM so they're not in any trouble,
    despite what the OP is probably trying to imply.

    Who was the OP? Gonz, the man who rabidly hates VM. No surprise there then.

  8. So the police visited his desk and checked out his computer. They did
    ***not*** raid VM as your headline exceptionally misleadingly implied.
    Heck, you can't even lie properly.

    If they did that then they raided some small part of VM. He was an
    employee and not a contractor from outside brought in temporarily?
    It was an exaggeration i think.

  11. I disagree They raided his desk and computer. They did not raid VM..
    I think he was a contractor, but then most staff in such parts of the
    business would be.
    I doubt it - Gonz has a real hatred of ntl / VM and takes every
    opportunity to cast them in a bad light, even when it has nothing to
    do with them except peripherally.

    You're thinkin of 'raid' as in knockin down doors and shoutin POLICE!
    GET ON THE FLOOR!
    It was more of a search without warning.

    Where was his desk?
    And when you say raid, do you mean raid as in POLICE! GET ON THE FLOOR!
    ?
    I do not have a hatred of NTL/VM, they just happen to be in the *news*
    all the time.
    This is a broadband group, it is the wrong group for me to discuss
    lesbians in tight skirts and high heels, so I talk about NTL/VM instead.

    *news* topics in the forums I read.

    You may disagree all you want. That doesn't change the fact that they
    raided VM property.
    Not always. If he was a contractor then that would insulate VM a little
    more from any tarnishing that may occur.
    The police raided VM property no? Yes I would put money on it. I never
    heard of any contractor bringing in his own desk and they usually use the
    firms computer too. So even going by your own words, they, the police,
    raided VM. You are sooooooo thick Mark McIntyre.

  17. so you admit your headline was false. Good, thats progress.

  18. Irrelevant As you know perfectly, this was not an investigation of VM,
    which your headline falsely implied.
    You used the word first. Perhaps you'd care to explain what the words
    "police raid" could be expected to imply to people.
    Thats hilarious!
    Sure. Had you posted a headline "police arrest teeside filesharer"
    then it would have been accurate.

  19. Yes. Thats not the same as raiding VM.
    Nope. I can't be bothered to explain it to you again, though.
    Childish name calling won't make your pathetic argument any better.

    VM will not be tarnished in the slightest by this. At least, not by those
    with a bit of common sense.

    However, I do suspect that people like Gonz, who hate VM with a passion for
    no good reason, will store it up and bring it out as another stick to beat
    them with in the future.

    You know... "VM? Yeah. Isn't that the company that once employed a
    paedophile."; like it will have been on his CV or something.
