1st Feb 2010 finally kicked out of the BCS for trying to promote my business

The fascist twats at the BCS have finally kicked me out for advertising on their mailing list. Even though they know its human rights web site and news site inter alia and theres a recession on as well. So I can only say good riddance to bad rubbish, as they are a bunch of religiously intolerent twats who objected to the satanist/pagan angle as well. What's the ppoint of a list for getting to know people ifg you can't say what your doing? come on, a waste of time.

 and now I'm out I can finally declare much like the British Government that they are no help to anyone and it is with much regret that I ever bought into their organisation or their qualifications in the first place. Call it the naivety of youth, when I thought qualifications matter, when I brought into the scaremongering and fear which they usually deploy to scare business off doing anything at all as I wished I hadn't joined, brought into the hype at uni now and it doesn't help you in business at all. notwithstanding the fact that they also left a huge gaping security hole on their email  lists which  they tried to cover up as well, and they are peeved for me trying to help them explain it. Oooops

Anyway I am no longer bound by their code of silence, and can reveal what really happened as I still have a copy of the emails which were exposed if anyone's interested in their f**kup

Letter telling me why (page 1)
Letter telling me why (page 2)
note: I sent them my views in an email before the hearing - but it appears they lost it, rather like the royal parlimentry courts of justice do.

Note: my recomondations are that any student thinking of bettering their career would be advised to spend the cash on hosting instead! As this lot are a waste of time and you will be judged by results, and not just words.

Stop Press 2016

I never got into work again. STILL unemployed after 9 years and I lost everything including all my houses and spent almost two years getting tortured on a mental health ward and when release December 2012 I was pulled in again and injected against my will again, which stopped me being able to work at a computer and it's only now april 2016 I have actually been able to sit at one to work. This site needs a rewrite, it was knocked up quickly when I was stressed not bringing any money in and the sex tree hasn't taken off to date. However I am now getting upto speed on windows 10 UWP programming for mobile apps, html5 which I will use in future, honest gov and now just want to get back into development again.
