“I Will Never Drink Again” says our Clive
After missing in action for more than a week, BFP’s bad boy Cliverton came home to find that he is single again. Frankly I can’t blame either Clive or his girlfriend because everybody knew they were wrong from the start, but they could have chosen a classier and less-public method of breaking up.
When the rest of us discovered a few months ago that Clive had told his new girlfriend about his role at BFP we were upset. More than upset. But as Shona so correctly pointed out, it is almost impossible to keep something like that from someone you live with, and also dishonest. We calmed down and just had to trust that whatever happened between them would not jeopardise BFP.
Then We Learned That She Had Clive’s Password
On July 25th, we were stunned to see that Cliverton’s girlfriend accessed the blog and posted an article Where Did Cliverton Sleep Last Night? Before the rest of us realised what had happened, some very rough four letter words were also posted in the comments section using Clive’s official BFP online identity. All passwords were changed within a few hours, but Cliverton was not seen for a week.
We at BFP decided that we owe an explanation to our readers and also an apology for some of the very rough language that was posted by “someone” using a BFP password. There are some other family ties between Clive’s girlfriend and one of the other BFP crew so we are not worried about someone getting carried away and blowing the whole show, but… it was a bit scary for a time.
How Much Longer Can BFP Go On Without Our Identities Being Discovered?
Sometimes we forget ourselves and the fact that there are many who would like to see Barbados Free Press and the other Bajan blogs taken down tomorrow. Even Guyana Consul Norman Faria is echoing Mia Mottley’s position that free speech in Barbados should be stopped. (See Barbados Underground’s article Guyana Consul Norman Faria Forced To Do Damage Control)
Nice position for Emancipation Day, Mr. Faria!
We don’t understand why we and the other heavy-duty Bajan blogs have been able to continue operating anonymously. Frankly when we first started we thought we would last all of three months.
As our long time readers know, it is not that “they” haven’t tried on many occasions to discover our names. In the case of the BLP government, we thank the Lord that they weren’t any more competent at finding us than they were at running a country.
Could it be that many of those who have been tasked to find us are actually protecting us? Stranger things have happened on this island.
