It is with great delight that I have made the decision to permanently ban Richard Ryan from contributing comments here at Tizona. There are a number of reasons for my decision, and I’ll outline them for you.
- Richard Ryan has received more than his fair share of opportunity to air his opinion, yet repeatedly fails to provide any evidence of any of his claims when asked. The rest of us are more than capable of backing up our claims, the rules are not going to change just for one “man”.
- Richard Ryan takes very cheap, nasty shots, mostly of a personal nature. Granted, he has not made many of his most offensive comments here, but his conduct on other blogs, such as that of Andrew Bolt and Tim Blair displays Richard Ryan’s tremendously nasty streak, and I don’t want that kind of attitude around here at Tizona. We’re a civilised bunch and always have been, and his conduct is not something we need here.
- Richard Ryan can’t decide who he is. His constant need for attention has caused him to change his identity multiple times on other blogs, as well as assuming the identities of other bloggers with whom he has had disputes. That kind of behaviour is just ridiculous, immature, and again shows a need for attention.
My decision is completely final. If anyone wants to attempt to change my mind, you’re more than welcome to try, but I doubt you’ll be anywhere near successful.

Smart move, Ash. Just keep a heads-up; other people who have tried to ban him report that as well as using multiple screen names (not being above impersonating others), he uses multiple email addresses & IP addresses. Still and all, with some of the really low cr@p he’s pulled elsewhere, it’s worth trying to keep him out. Cheers mate.

Thanks Spot. I know how he feels the need to pretend he’s someone else, but I can’t blame him too much for that. If I was Richard Ryan, I wouldn’t want to admit it either. He’s pulled some very nasty stuff. On the plus side, he’s easily recognisable so if he tries on a different name, he’s probably not going to get far.

I don’t ever know who I am. I’m always trying to work out who I am besides, I sparkles and now have a hot haircut. I feel ‘;;”;’;’;’; really great.

Well he did out himself as a “trufer”, so that made him the retarded cousin of pond slime to me..

Now, frollicking, don’t be so harsh on the pondscum. I thought you had better manners than that.

Try to persuade you to change your mind? Sure. When Richard Ryan manages to gather all his multiple personalities into one sane brain and develops character.

You deserved it Richard, because you made one of the nastiest, vile comments I’ve ever seen at Bolta’s.
I wholeheartedly stand by Gordon of Perth’s statement.
Go fuck yourself Richard Ryan!

Why not make Richy an exemplar of the “Post Turtle”?
