Never heard of him

Admin - I appreciate it looks like that, although it would've been good for someone to check that they were actually different before removing them without informing me. It was only by chance that I had noticed.

What was his username on there?
He was a really gobby guy who went under the name of Andy Glen. He was quite often abuisive to other posters on the forum and it doesn't surprise me that he has been outed as a nasty perv.

From on line news and Company data, looks like it was him, virtually no doubt. 
The Glen bit is a middle name that comes up in some searches

Cheers for that, I didn't really know enough about him to figure it out. Worrying stuff but at least he is gone from most places now!

The only thing that gives any consoloation is that they think they are clever, but get cought out in the end, the trouble is, the dammage they do on that route.  Sadly, there is nothing we ca do to short cut the process as suspicion isn't enough, although no one, apart from one smart bloke suspected anything But one less to worry you girls and your kids, as sick as that sounds

He had a habit of gifting modelling site subscriptions to seemingly random models which left them feeling uncomfortable. He also offered to pay a photographer to shoot a particular model in order to advance her portfolio but didn't want her to know about the arrangement. Rather strange if you ask me but no doubt someone will be keen to say there's nothing to be inferred from it as he was just being a nice guy. Fortunately most models learn to trust their gut instinct.

I am not sure one can link his generosity with his previous behaviour, which was three years ago.People can change, they can still have good sides, although, I am certainly not ruling anything out.   I am not excusing him or defending him, not for one second.  It is far too easy to judge someone with the knowledge that they have done something vile.   The important issue is that he was caught and is less of a danger now.  He escaped prison as he has a poorly wife to care for, let's hope that keeps him occupied for the rest of his life.

And make no mistake - the reason he escaped prison was because for a paedophile a prison sentence is difficult/costly to administer whilst taking into account the particular hazards such a person faces whilst in jail. His wife's illness was just a convenient excuse to save money and/or potential embarrassment to the prison system in case he should end up with a serious injury or worse whilst detained.

The profile removed by the site's admin was of a prolific forum poster ID dudleychap/AndyGlen. He also worked with several models.

Having used several of the major sites of this kind. I find 3 of them all have different features that are either unique or better than the similar features on other sites.

My feeling is that if someone surveyed customers to find what features are the best and most important. Put them all on one site that already has a good reputation like purestorm. Then surely it would make the other sites inferior.

That is pretty much what PP did and hence, it boomed.

oh thanks. Gosh, I did know of him (only through name and his posts on the Purple site. Must not have posted anything too controversial/intriguing as really don't remember anything about him other than name, haha).
