No se mete en ese callejón.

Senor Senor 14 Jul 2017, 18:35

Este lugar se ha convertido en un lugar de fantasía y no de realidad. Si Soundman quiere seguir imprimiendo a su gente falsa, creo que le dejamos continuar. Sin embargo él debe advertir cada fantasía que es ficción él está escribiendo. Me parece que no hay ningún problema aquí.

Le pido que Moonshine simplemente nos diga todos los nombres de usuario que Soundman ha usado para publicar aquí. Seguramente Soundman estaría de acuerdo con eso porque dice que nunca ha publicado bajo otro nombre. Moonshine nos puede mostrar pruebas. ¿Es sí. ¿Es no.

Soundman ¿estás dispuesto a dejar que Moonshine haga esto?

What a bunch of fucking losers

Andrew 14 Jul 2017, 12:49

And there are things which we, in the UK, cannot see when they are posted in the US. It does work both ways.

still 14 Jul 2017, 12:46

I also.

Crystal Veil 14 Jul 2017, 12:14

I second to that.

People trying to obtain vision and eyeglasses information do an internet search. is shown as a search result. They then post here with their questions and/or other vision/glasses related experiences, fears etc.

Someone responds to their enquiry. Maybe a few people do. What's so hard to understand about this? There are 7 billion people on the planet. Or even more. Some of them post here. They are different individuals.

Soundmanpt is a unique individual. As is Carrie. They live thousands of miles and an ocean apart. It is quite mean spirited to make absurd ridiculous accusations claiming that a whole bunch of posters here are the same person. If one does not like what they read on this site then don't read it and please don't accuse, smear people who post here.

Soundmanpt 14 Jul 2017, 09:19


If that anonymous post wasn't from you then you my apology. You're right I don't want to be like and falsely accusing people of being other people. I have tried numerous ways to convince you that I am me and only me but you refuse to want to believe me. But yet you have no prove at all. Why don't you go back and find some of Carries post in here and you can easily see that she is most certainly in the UK as she says she is because she has tried to post a few things from the BBC which won't work here in the US and I am most certainly in the USA and know hardly anything about the UK.

Glassesforeveryone 14 Jul 2017, 07:59

Thanks for the backing anonymous!

Not sure why I wouldn't mention my name Soundmanpt when I have every other time and I am banned (so can't really be demonised or punished further!).

I can post if I anonymise my IP address, but I think that's not good form considering I'm banned.

Anyway, please refrain from name calling. All I did was question the similar prose, consistent syntax of posts you interact with and I got banned. It seems you can name call and it's fine. A real shame that this site allows it, but hey - that's life.

Enjoy life Soundmanpt, just try not to swamp everything with your enthusiasm.

Soundmanpt 13 Jul 2017, 06:33

This is true. Now if only they could win the Stanley Cup. 50 years but still no cup.

 13 Jul 2017, 04:47


At least you still have the Blues of the NHL.

Soundmanpt 12 Jul 2017, 16:59

Have you ever noticed that Carrie has posted several things which can only be opened if you're in the UK? I am in the USA. My hometown baseball team is the St. Louis Cardinals. WE lost our football team last year. They are the Rams and they moved back to Los Angles. We hate the owner of the team Sam Kroenke with a passion for moving them.

Not posting your name chicken ass doesn't fool anyone. I know it you "glassesforeveryone"

 12 Jul 2017, 12:14

glassesforeveryone. you have everyone's backing. we all know it is Soundmanpt. he continues to deny it until his death. and that's just stupid. he thinks we are all dumb and naive. but as you say, he is the only person who suddenly appears to talk with sudden "new people." it is very obvious to long time readers here. btw, carrie is also fake and that's him too.

i salute you, glassesforeveryone for calling a spade a spade and standing up for all the rest of us.

Lv2c4i 06 Jun 2017, 03:23

According to one of the chatty newsreaders, it's "Wear your glasses" day. Wonder if it is connected to the metric equivalency of 20/20 vision being 6/6 (and that's the June 6 date designation)? Regardless, does not seem to be many using the day for wearing their spex. Oh, well, happy day to the eyewear afficionados frequenting this site.

Moni Monik to harass Brazilian women with glasses, you are being denounced in several groups, your correspondence is both annoying and invasive, and coupled with news that are part of the eyescene that denigrate the image of the forum

Tod 10 May 2017, 11:14

I don't think there has been any winner's here. I feel that Glassesforeveryone was wrong to accuse Soundmanpt, but I think it is a shame to block a long term contributor to the site, esp as he didn't hide behind a different name.

I wish you'd left it alone Glassesforeveryone.

Luke 05 May 2017, 15:55

It is important to remember when reading the blogs that this is a fantasy site. We come here to express our fantasies about eyewear. All contributors are living out their fantasies and desires, none I believe are professionally trained.

LikeGlass 05 May 2017, 08:44

The problem may be the fact that ISP's often rotate IP addresses. As such, a legitimate block may rotate off it's intended target and on to someone who has done nothing wrong.

In writing code for websites, designing a block for a public forum is very difficult. Since there is no "sign in" you have to rely on either an IP block, or a cookie block. IP's may rotate, and cookies are easy to remove and only valid on whatever machine the cookie is dropped on. Often, IP addresses rotate so often that a more general block, using the first two groups of numbers are used. Unfortunately, those blocks wipe out large blocks of users.

Having a sign-in system has been debated many times over the last 20 years. I remember having these discussions with Wurm. The though is that many interesting posts would be lost because people do not want to go through the process of setting up an account. This would be especially true of the occasional newcomer who just learned of the board.

On the other side of the issue, having an open system requires a lot more active management deleting the occasional flames. When a major breakout occurs, IP blocks become the only tool to cool things down, as such, non-offenders will always get swept up in the blocks, which is unfortunate.

specs4ever 05 May 2017, 06:44

I agree with Puffin. Keep it nice people. I personally do not think that Glassesforeveryone should be blocked, but that is up to the moderator.

Sam 05 May 2017, 06:29

That has to go down as the lamest apology ever. Congratulations Glassesforeveryone and goodbye!

Puffin 05 May 2017, 04:05


I think these fakery issues are for the moderator/site owner, not us humble site users.

Throwing unsubstantiated accusations around got boring a long time ago, and its unfair.

Just don't take everything you read here seriously.

glassesforeveryone 05 May 2017, 02:25

I am disappointed to have been blocked (unsuccessfully if I use a proxy, but if I'm not wanted I'll take the message).

I would like to point out a couple of things.

I have been a contributor to this site for well-over 10 years, probably closer to 20. I have never done anything untoward in those years, and indeed, if you were to reread my last contribution, you would see that I only pointed out my doubts in the validity of a lot of posts in recent times.

I didn't name call, I had closed my contributions on that line.

I was actually trying to protect this site from it turning into something it never was in the days of Filthy McNasty, Clare, et also.

I apologise if Soundmanpt has been wrongly accused, but his name is the one that many posts have accused, for reasons that seem to add up.

My point is that, if a female character turns up with a vision issue, she gets a huge amount of interest from certain accounts. She stays for a while and then leaves.

If a man posts a similar (likely valid) post, it gets ignored.

I would ask whether anyone here thinks that my actions merit a ban. If people back that assessment then I accept your conclusion.

I certainly hope you haven't also banned Hyperaficionado, he seems to have always contributed sensibly.

Moonshiner, if people feel comfortable to have me here I would ask for you to lift the ban.

With respect,


Moonshiner 05 May 2017, 01:36


Moonshiner 05 May 2017, 01:24

I deleted several unsuitable posts and blocked a couple more IP addresses most were from. Keep it nice, if you don’t like it don’t read it. See #8 on the FAQ page,

This is not a political site, do not use the names of politicians unless it is directly related to glasses/vision and then do give any political opinion. There are plenty of political forums elsewhere on the net if you are so inclined.

Pete and all, I have added an email link at the bottom of the FAQ page.

 04 May 2017, 15:03


Please email me.


Bobby Laurel To Robert Wildman 07 Mar 2017, 13:55

Important message to Robert Wildman_

Please, stop harassing Elisete. You made her feel very uncomfortable. She feels abused by your correspondence to her.

Whoever you are, Wildman, if you do not stop, it will have consequences. Just remember or find in the old archiver of the eyescene hw Tom the Hungarian disapeared from the Eyescene. The same can happen to you.

Filthy McNasty 05 Mar 2017, 07:58

Wow. 20 years. Many thanks to Wurm and Moonshiner. I have many fond memories of this place right back to the beginning. I was almost 30 then; now I am almost 50!

Galileo 05 Mar 2017, 01:19

Eyescene 20th anniversary? WOW congratulations everyone for getting this far. That means I must have found this site very close to the beginning but didn't realise how long it has been. Thanks Wurm and Moonshiner

Val 04 Mar 2017, 06:20

Happy Anniversary to Eye Scene! Thank you Wurm for starting this forum and keeping it working for so many years. Another thanks to Moonshiner for continuing your work.

And, also, thank you Wurm for inspiring me to start Vision & Spex, which will be 6 years old in July.

Long live Eye Scene!

Wurm 03 Mar 2017, 20:37

Happy 20th anniversary to Eye Scene! Thanks especially to Moonshiner for keeping the site going over the past several years. Hello to all my forum and chat friends -- I hope to see you sometime.

Catwoman 30 Jan 2017, 14:11


My "drop-temple" glasses were all plastic, and they fit me just fine. The only time any pair of glasses slips a bit is when I work up a "shvitz" working out or when the temperature and humidity are quite high. As for my eldest daughter, she is a bit on the modest side and has not shown any indication toward wearing the drop-temples in public as of yet. My younger daughter has little interest in that frame style.

Soundmanpt 30 Jan 2017, 10:58


Are your "drop-temple" glasses a full plastic frame or more like a semi-rimless metal frame? They were made several different ways back then. Too bad your daughter doesn't wear them out in public. It would be interesting to see what reactions her friends would have seeing her wearing those glasses. I'm sure she would get some interesting comments on her glasses. Honestly I really think those glasses had a certain style about them Like i said the only problem was that because of the temple being lower they were hard to keep adjusted so they didn't slide down constantly. You wore those glasses for a good while do you remember having any problem with your glasses sliding down more then any of your current glasses?

Catwoman 29 Jan 2017, 10:08


Where to begin? Well, thank you for the welcome, and for letting me know that "drop-temples" is the name for my "upside-down" glasses. FYI, I graduated from high school in 1984, but I continued wearing those glasses for 2 years in college. They were big and brown, and my daughter only wears them basically around the house, using small plastic frames for normal wear. My other daughter wears small cateye frames, not as angular as most of mine are.

My husband, daughters, and I have always worn eyeglasses, never contacts. The astigmatism is quite strong for all of us.

Soundmanpt 28 Jan 2017, 11:36


So nice that you have decided to join in and not just be a lurker. You seem to be a woman with a passion for her glasses and you wear your glasses with style. How nice that you currently have 7 pairs of "cat-eyes" in your prescription so you can wear a different pair each day of the week. You even several more frames in waiting should your prescription change or you decide to replace one of them. The glasses you were wearing in your 1986 high school yearbook with the temples on the bottom were called "drop-temples" I remember them very well. They were very popular for several years. I dated several young ladies that wore that style of glasses and they all had the same problem. They were constantly pushing their glasses back up because they didn't want to stay up in place very well. But I really liked the way they looked on young ladies. your daughter must also think they look nice if she even had her own prescription put into them as her backup pair of glasses. Do you know if she has wore them out much? I have to think she would get plently of comments as well as complements on her glasses. As you know you just don't see that style anymore and that's really too bad. Seeing her wearing your old glasses had to bring back memories of when you wore those same glasses back in high school. It seems at least one if nit both your daughters have the same passion for their glasses as you have? Have they both only wore glasses and never bothered with contacts?

Catwoman 28 Jan 2017, 10:19

I have been reading items on this website for a number of weeks now, so here goes my first post.

I have worn eyeglasses since age 6. My husband has worn glasses since he was 7, so our 2 daughters started early as well (6 and 7 respectively). Each of us went full-time immediately.

I am using the moniker of "Catwoman" because we have 4 cats at home, and I own and wear 7 pairs of cateye glasses (1 per day per week). In addition to the 7 pairs I use each week, I have others waiting to be used upon a prescription change or if I want to wear something different.

Before I started wearing cateyes in 1986 (and I have worn no other style since), I wore glasses with the temples on the bottom for several years before that. When she first looked at my picture in my high school yearbook, my eldest daughter said, "Mom, why were you wearing your glasses upside down?" I told her it was a style back then, and I showed her the frame. When she got older, I let her get her prescription in those glasses, which she uses as a backup pair. And I did wear my cateyes in my college graduation picture.
