On 4/6/07 the Moderator of EOS emailed me for details of the Petition & website I had set up, as he was thinking of including it in a newsletter. I filled him in, thanked him for his interest, & also received his permission to post details of the website on EOS. This had already kindly been done by some from SPI, so I followed suit, albeit hesitatingly.
Today I received the following email from the same person:
A recent message that you posted on SPI about the interview that I did has been brought to my attention today and I am a little disappointed to be honest.
It seems that you use my website ONLY to promote your website and use SPI to slate me.
This is very wrong and rather two-faced.
If you cannot bring yourself to post on Eye on Spain anything apart from to promote your website then I would rather you didn’t post at all.
You obviously have no respect for me or my business.
The message I posted on SPI can be seen here (last post on thread)= https://www.spanishpropertyinsight.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1872&start=15
This is the same message I posted on EOS, where several concurred.
The above email is totally untrue and unwarranted, but I suspect this is still the fall-out from the war both sites had in February. Any posts I have made about the SPSP website have always been given with whatever help/info/advice I felt I could also offer. I have never been ‘two-faced’ & never will be. Nor will I reduce myself to name-calling (though some very choice ones come to mind). I also would not put ‘regards’ at the end of a letter to someone I was ‘insulting’ at the same time.
My postings are gradually disappearing from EOS & I would be grateful if no further mention of me is made on EOS. SPSP is non-commercial & is entirely funded by myself only. It is a shame that JA is unable to see that he is hindering many people from getting the help & united support that they deserve – but seeing his latest postings I suspect he is trying to take up on EOS what I have been working very hard at, whilst eliminating me in the process.
Sorry Mark to use space for this – just think the facts should be known.

Suzanne,It is unfortunate that you have been caught up in this situation I do not think it is a huge setback,your petition will not suffer unduly from this, most people regard this Forum as being at the forefront of important discussions with respect to property issues in Spain ,more of an opportunity to seek more exciting outlets for SPSP ,than a knock back.
June 11, 2007 at 9:41 pm #72885
Absolutely Gary, thank you.
Have just replied to 5 more ‘signatures’ to Our Petition this evening, so we are progressing well & will continue to strongly move forward. Nearly said ‘boldy go where no man has gone before’ ❗ ❗

Just wanted to add that the other website is such a load of dross, definately the worst expat website, in terms of … everything.
I doubt this Justin fellow getting his knickers in a twist will reduce the exposure of your campaign at all.
June 11, 2007 at 9:45 pm #72887
forestfire – we’re so in tune we both posted at the same moment 🙂
June 12, 2007 at 9:05 am #72895
Well Suzanne, by posting this here you have effectively shot yourself in the foot.
Just is obviously right in saying that you use this website to slate him, it’s exactly what you have done here.
Don’t junk up the forum with this sort of stuff, it just makes you look really bad.
Whether you like Eye on Spain or not the website has helped many people buying in Spain so you shouldn’t try and put it down.
Sorry Suzanne, but I think you are very wrong doing this, it just makes Justin look good and you look bad.
June 12, 2007 at 9:57 am #72897
I don’t want to get into “our forum is better than yours” stuff that happens on another crass website, but I think there is a bit of envy around because Spanish Property Insight is the credible site where people can get answers without having to read stupid off-topic stuff. I think your comments were valid Suzanne, thnks for letting us know. [/i]
June 12, 2007 at 10:14 am #72899
Katy, this has nothing to do with which forum is better, you’ve missed the point. The two are totally different.
The point I’m making is that by reading the comments Justin was right. Suzanne uses this forum to slate him and his website.
She has proved him right and Suzanne has made herself look silly by doing this.
I think Mark needs to step in here. It seems there was friction in the past and if this isn’t sorted it will escalate again.
Both sites are good and this sort of rubbish just makes a mockery of this forum.
Having just joined the site today I have to say it’s not been a nice experience so far.
June 12, 2007 at 10:21 am #72900
Suzanne,I seriously would not bother responding to this factually and materially wrong thread,it is nothing more than a derranged rant ,responding will only result in having to come down to this level,which is subteranean ,no doubt there will be the ususal nonsence about being allowed an opinion,just because it does not accord with yours blah blah blah,
In leaving them to die a slow death due to the utter low life level of their obvious motives they will just show themselves up for what they truly are,
any set up that puts their own narrow and morally defunct objectives,before those of their contributors should be given a wide birth.
Eye on Spain ,is not a web site that anyone I know has bothered with, when I first considered Spain like most people with a brain ,I seemed to naturally drift to this site and Typically Spanish.I think there are too many obviously sponsored postings and adverts,hey just a personal opinion,!!,
June 12, 2007 at 10:30 am #72901
Gary I think you have a serious problem of aggression to deal with. What’s with the attitude?
Talk about a friendly forum….NOT!
You know nothing about me so why do you chose to make such defamatory comments about me?
Now you too are making yourself look like an arse.
June 12, 2007 at 10:41 am #72902
Suzanne’s comments were not aimed at the EOS but the Lawyers who were giving the interview. Interesting that a new member seems to have joined just to have a go at this topic 🙄
June 12, 2007 at 10:49 am #72904
Peters,Yo mate ,all right geezer, ,your right you are obviously a very nice kind person ,and your postings thus far have been highly incisive interesting and well informed, er …..wrong !!,we know where you are coming from and we know what you are up to, if you do not like the heat of the kitchen then the best thing is to leave ,talking of arse’s I suggest you get your head out of yours,but I get the impression its probably got stuck up there ,safe bruv
June 12, 2007 at 10:50 am #72905
Well, thank you all for such a warm welcome.
Seems no one is allowed an opinion here apart from Suzanne, Katy and GSB.
I thought this was a forum? Isn’t that where we discuss things? Air our opinions?
What is the point if I will have half the members jumping down my throat?
And Katy, what are you insinuating? You need to chill out too.
So much attitude here.
June 12, 2007 at 11:07 am #72907
I am saying that you came on here from EOS site just to have a rant, someone on here will be able to identify you in a bit. I also won’t waste anymore time replying to your aggressive stance.
June 12, 2007 at 11:08 am #72908
Peters,Come on mate, you can do better than that ,you must have something else in the locker other than ,What with the attitude,and what a warm welcome you have received ?,otherwise this is already getting very boring,suggest you have a lie down and try and come up with something original witty or God forbid meaningful,try giving the ol head a nudge I think your needle has got stuck, otherwise you will force me to restart the outside painting.If fact on reflection I think I will start the Painting ,not as boring
June 12, 2007 at 11:10 am #72909
I was right Gary, you are an arse.

Suzanne, I totally agree with what you are doing, you’re doing a really good job. It also means I strongly disagree with peters comments so keep up the good work please.
For various reasons I prefer Mark’s website to EOS, I find it less influenced by agents who seem to be able to slag people off on EOS.
A good aspect of EOS is the fact that if you post, then it tends to become a heading say for example under Spanish Estate Agents, sub heading ‘warning, I do not recommend Ocean Estates’ , ‘Parador props’ etc so anyone can click straight on to that subject without it being lost amongst many previous posts.

sorry you had to take this abuse, if people are not with us they are against us, and i feel that makes them as bad as those we are fighting against for justice. With that in mind, i feel any fair minded person will support our cause including the website you have done so well to set up. I would take critism as a compliment from those against us, it shows we are hitting where it hurts!
June 12, 2007 at 1:24 pm #72919
Suzanne,Just came across Peters other postings do not think there is anything to concern yourself here, this is obviously a wind up,

Don’t let the door hit you on your way out.
June 12, 2007 at 5:58 pm #72927
Just want to say “thank you” for all the supportive comments here.
And to also clarifiy that the ‘interview’ I was commenting on was with The Agent – not the lawyer.
‘Peters’ bait was, I believe, initially set by another ‘new’ one & only post at 11:57pm yesterday (can just imagine what the initials stand for); they were both hoping I would bite, but it was clearly very fishy ❗ I’m sure I will be coming across more enemies against Our Petition, but, like today, it won’t be too difficult to see who they & their supporters are.
None of this has made even the tiniest dent in SPSP & Our Fight. 8)

To quote peters
Well Suzanne, by posting this here you have effectively shot yourself in the foot.
Well think he actually blasted both his feet firing at you.
You never make rude or sarcastic comments even when some appear directed at your situation.
Typical of the postings on a particular site that I think the pits.
