Phil Beer made that post in May last year, along with a number of other luminaries fed up to the back teeth of madlizziecornish's interminable, unbelievably misinformed mawkish mumblings. Among them Eliza Carthy who, as EFDSS vice president, thundered at her to keep her hands (and lying tongue) well away. Most heartfelt was this passage:
