I am not arguing, I am just letting everyone here know about the unreasonable discrimination that is going on in the CSC.  Stuff that they hoped you would NEVER know about, but thanks to the wonderful internet, is now exposed to all.

It's a tough job presenting a small gay country in the Fifth World, but made tougher when you get smarmy folks pretending to be "do-gooders" sabotaging everything you do.  But we persist. Big smile

He was surprised to see the stamp, so I explained about Occussi-Ambeno.  He signed all the envelopes, then I presented him with half the pile for his own distribution.

Do you still have any of that other 'half a pile' left Panterre?

I would very much like a signed envelope if you have one left, I am a big fan of Douglas Adams and I know lots of other fans who would like a signed copy too.  You could be sitting on a small fortune there

What was he speaking about or did you only go to get a few dozen envelopes signed?


Douglas spoke about his new book, the latest in the "hitch-hiker" series at the time (featuring the "travelling parties".)  He read extracts from it, as it had not been published at the time, and all the audience was enthused.  I got to do his introduction, as I had liased with the publishing company about him coming to speak, which was an event held at Auckland University under the auspices of the AU Science-Fiction Society.

I am sure I have some of these covers around here someplace, but just been to hunt in the most obvious place but no sign.  I'll keep hunting, and hope to add a photo here when they turn up.

the showcase for his rather idiosyncratic artwork.

I don't see why he should be allowed to post up as many pictures of his own stamps as he likes, as awful as they are


Sneaked those in  Wink   but if you really don't like him or his stamps why do you keep replying, and providing a reason for reply or (worse) more pictures...?



Damn, now I've done it too  Clown

This thread moved from the CSC magazine thread, January 2020.

No - that is my privilege.  Though sometimes I wonder if it is actually worth it.


I started this forum to provide a place where people could discuss their cinderella stamp collections, but instead, the busiest thread for some time now seems to revolve around one business's gripe about not having their advert published. 

Something none of us here can do anything about. 

Surely Panterra your immediate argument is with the CSC and not for our stamps forum.  

As so many members are clearly annoyed that this thread has been diverted away from its original direction I will move it to a new thread of its own, away from the CSC link. 


PLEASE play nicely people, or the forum will be shut down.  If we cannot stick to discussing cinderella and fantasy stamps then I want no more to do with it.

Whilst I am not one of the 'guys' Panterra, I can see why your advert might be considered unsuitable for publication in a general interest magazine.

It is NOT a travel advert. You cannot travel to a fantasy land.   

It states 'Straights tolerated'. That offends me as labelling any person by there gender is discrimatory and divisive. I would not travel to a nation that stated 'Gays Tolerated'.

The 'Antarctica' advert is also a fake of course but its political goals are not as immediately obvious.  


I also think that this whole argument does not belong to a thread which was started in order to discuss articles in a magazine.  It should be moved elsewhere where it can be ignored by anyone not interested in whatever the title of its thread might be.  I do not want to open a thread which discusses actual features in a magazine to be confronted with a series of HUGE images for stamps and pages which are not related to the published magazine and which are essentially further self-promotion for one man's fantasy output, and seems to occur elsewhere on this forum when the member makes a post.  Any post made seems to include an example of a 'stamp'.  Nothing wrong with that in itself but it does get distracting when not relevant to the thread on which it is imposed.

Admin, if you want members to post and put up pictures more often you have to take responsibility for the quality of the images and for the content and its relevance to the thread in question or this forum will become a mouthpiece for one man's opinions and the showcase for his rather idiosyncratic artwork.

I also cannot see the point in the use Douglas Adams' image and quote here and will be contacting the owners of his estate.  I knew Douglas personally and while he was always a supporter of human rights he would not have approved of being linked retrospectively on a fictitious stamp.  

For the sake of fairness I will also contact the estate of Roald Admundsen, who I am sure will be just as interested in the misuse of his name and image in the production and commercial promotion of the Mevu stamps.
