V&S appears to be back up, but my login does not work properly using Cactus Jack and the PW you provided some while back.

Any suggestion?

Please reply to


Soundmanpt 06 Aug 2017, 09:33


No need to apologize. We should be thanking you for keeping V&S up. You are the one paying out of yur pocket to keep it going and for that I thank you.

Val 06 Aug 2017, 07:56

Sorry, sorry

I forgot that in august expires the domain for V&S.

It wasn't set for automatic payment. Because in 2015 they charged me twice.

I am doing the payment now manually.

I hope that in a few ours V&S will be back...

That site has become almost dormant except for the fantasy stories where people always end up wearing glasses. And surprise surprise other family members and friends wind up wearing glasses and love doing so. I wonder if it will continue or not.

Erik 05 Aug 2017, 18:17

It looks like the vision-and-spex domain name expired. I wonder if he decided to give up because of the lack of activity.

Soundmanpt 04 Aug 2017, 13:31

It seems that Vision and Specs is down.

Puffin 31 Jul 2017, 05:34

Perhaps anonymous posters should be banned.

Also ban people from posting from the same url with different names within a few hours or days. If possible, it would stop all this "they're the same person" nonsense.

astigmaphile 30 Jul 2017, 19:34


I know that you and Carrie are both real people and have never doubted either of you. Some people need to find somethiung more constructive to do than be trolls.

Soundmanpt 30 Jul 2017, 11:42


Interesting that you mention "Vision and Specs" because I am signed up in there which Val can atest to and so is Carrie. So since you have to register there that would seem to prove that I am not Carrie as has been suggested by "non name" quite often.

I have no problem at all with this site having that same sign in as V&S has.

Reader 30 Jul 2017, 10:30

Happy Birthday, Tatinha!

astigmaphile 30 Jul 2017, 09:50

I think it is time that a user name and password are required to post on Eyescene. It is that way on vision and specs and I don't see much in the way of rude remarks over there.

lentifan 30 Jul 2017, 08:28

To the last, anonymous, poster

You seem rather obsessive, to put it mildly. To quote yourself, I suggest you get a life. If, as you say, this site is so hard to find, then just accept that no-one is being harmed, go away, and leave us in peace.

 30 Jul 2017, 04:17

NNVIS reminds me of those people who always twist the meaning of words to fit their own situation. What is going on here really? Someone is clearly making up identities so often this has simply become a fictitious writing board and no longer value to anyone. All the real users have left. So a few others decided to make a name, have a conversation, then the name disappears forever and a new one shows. The situations are non-sensical and clearly fake postings generated to satisfy a fetish desire. Bullshit explanations have been offered like how easy it is to find eyescene with a simple google search. Try it sometime. I searched a few minutes ago on eyes and glasses, and after thirty pages, eyescene still doesn't show up in the results. Most people don't go flip beyond thirty pages looking for results, so the conclusion that they find it on google is incredibly naive. If you want to talk about bullying, let's talk about the serious harassment from hot-headed eyescene users who shit over anyone who dares to get to the bottom of this problem. Spewing mouthfuls of diahhrea at the person, enough to fill six toilets. There is nothing wrong with finding out whether this is a fiction board or not. There are categories for fiction stories and fiction should go there. Many of the users who have left were looking for real stories until users started making up bullshit for their fantasies. Stop trying to pass off as sixty different people and get a life. If you think trying to investigate a situation is bullying, I bet you really hate cop drama shows. Stop being a bully and interrogating him. Waah. My feelings are hurting. Grow up. We all want the truth here, you naive wankers. Let's get it. Put all the fiction in the fiction topic. Stop bullying people who raise questions about the fake people posting. I have said enough and I say it anonymously. It is funny how some people here think every single anonymous poster is one person. I know I am not those other people. Accept the fact there are other people who hate what is going on here too. Grow up. Sift out the bullshit fiction and move forward.

NNVisitor 26 Jul 2017, 10:13

There's a word for what the anonymous poster is doing. It's called bullying. It's a tactic used to demean and smear someone's reputation. Dear anonymous poster there is world wide web for you to spend your time on. Lengthy conspiratoral videos. There's Twitter where you can find people to fight with 24/7. We're actually not interested in your bizarre absurd false denigrating accusations. They have nothing to do with how our eyes work, vision and vision correction.

Soundmanpt 26 Jul 2017, 06:42

I Have no problem at all with "Moonshiner" posting my or checking my name in IP address. As I have stated numerous times I have nothing to hide.

Danny 26 Jul 2017, 05:56

The great advantage of a site that does not require password identity log ins is that new people can access information quickly and for free.

As a legally blind poster, this website has been hugely beneficial for me. I'd go as far as life changing. However, moonshiner and Telemann may cemoe big headed.

If you choose to read the posts here then, by default, you also choose to read fiction, half-truth and supreme honesty.

If you do not like the content please go elsewhere.

No one forces you to visit this site.

As adults you choose to click here. Please let moonshiner ban people/Ip addresses as he chooses. He pays the bills.

If you don't lije his decisions, please find a new pastime

And it's raining in London, so I'm being atdacked by umbrellas.

Puffin 26 Jul 2017, 05:27

In Defense of S

I was merely attempting to show how it is possible to make all sorts of ludicrous and baseless claims about someone else here.

The only evidence seems to be that they talk to each other!

Wow! People never talk to each other here...?

gerry 26 Jul 2017, 04:54

HI Owlish, do you have any problems socially do dates ignore you because of your glasses, do you think your attractiveness to guys is based on your glasses. I hope not, because behind many thick glasses wearing people are lovely personalities. Take good care Martin xx

In Defense of S 25 Jul 2017, 17:49

Puffin. It's time to refill your meds.

Sound. I think you should tell Moonshiner to post here every name that has been posted to eyescene by your ip address. That seems like a very simple solution. If you do this, all the disbelievers will see they are wrong. But if you have something to hide you will probably reject this suggestion and everyone still won't believe.

I trust you. But you should know it is very easy for you to spoof post things under a virtual ip address. Telling people you can't be that person because it is two continents is useless. you will find luck with my suggestion.

I think it is best way for resolution. you have told many people here that you have never posted under a new name. i think therefore you should have no fear requesting Moonshiner to do this for you.

Soundmanpt 25 Jul 2017, 14:20


This person doesn't even have "flimsy evidence" He has none at all, only what he wants to believe. Yes I reply to Carrie as well a lot of other people. I have provided more proof that I am who I say I am and only me. But you can only beat a dead horse so much. How much more of a "fake" can you be then when you constantly post with no name much like a snake in the grass.

Soundmanpt 25 Jul 2017, 14:09


Thank you for your kind words of support.

 25 Jul 2017, 14:08

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men, Soundmanpt, he do.

Puffin 25 Jul 2017, 11:24

I apologize for my earlier sarcastic posts.

It's just that certain people assume things based on flimsy evidence and a lot of self-deception.

It just gets tiresome seeing the same accusations repeatedly.

Stingray 25 Jul 2017, 10:13

Does it really matter who Soundmanpt really is? All I know from reading his posts over the years that he posts interesting comments and is a positive force on this website. What I find interesting about him is that he seems to genuinely care about people, especially those who get eyeglasses for the first time. His suggestions to parents, teenagers and young adults are all for the positive welfare of the individual. He makes people who are hesitant to wear glasses in public confident about their appearance. He never posts negative or inflammatory comments. He is an asset to Eyescene. Two thumbs up SoundmanPT

 25 Jul 2017, 09:06

Hi Soundmanpt

Thank you very much for your reply, and words of support.

Puffin 24 Jul 2017, 20:11

Soundmanpt, I know who you really are: none other than Professor Moriaty! No doubt planning some dastardly deeds.

Puffin 24 Jul 2017, 19:14

Actually soundmanpt could be everyone on the entire internet. All your friends and relatives, everyone you've ever come across online, they are all him. There's only one way such a thing could work (shhh, I didn't say this) it's... a government conspiracy... they must be colluding with aliens.

Puffin 24 Jul 2017, 18:16

I am now wondering if everyone on this board is Soundmanpt.

Consider the evidence: as soon as someone posts, "someone else" replies to them, and suspiciously quickly too. That proves conclusively that they are the same person.

He's the trolls too. What fun.

Moonshiner 22 Jul 2017, 03:13

I deleted some unsuitable posts, some from an anonymous user that made inappropriate posts in multiple threads and blocked a couple more IP addresses they were from. Keep it nice. If you have trouble posting, you can email from the FAQ page and I will look into it.

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.

NNVisitor 14 Jul 2017, 10:53

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

Post deleted orphaned by post below from an anonymous user.

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

Post deleted - false accusation

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.

Elisete 30 May 2017, 10:31

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.
