I have been thinking a lot about.. whether this blog is ok. Some seem not to like it, that's fine because there will always be someone. But it made me wonder why feedback sometimes is so evil, not just negative, I mean evil and messages often contain swearing. I don't know why some light infos on houses are wrong; readers have even complained about photos I took; photos that don't really tell much. There are regular pap pics. Mark got papped near his house few days ago, it was across all TT forums and everyone looked at the pics. I wonder whether anyone found these photos actually wrong and has ever complained ?


think twice

Don't worry about it. Some people seem to think they own the boys. As long as you aren't upsetting them or causing them any distress, then you aren't crossing the line. I like reading your posts. You make me smile.
You aren't harming anyone. Some TT fans aren't very nice - just ignore them. They are just jealous.

thanks for very nice comments; I am actually not fishing for compliments; I thought I point out what is obvious but seems to be forgotten, so it was meant as a reminder. One thing I also did not get was the Mark's wedding thingy.. people did not like that fans turned up, they called it out of order, but it was ok for the paps since pics got posted all over and lots of people commented on the pics and they were even waiting for some - see the contradiction - ok i shut up now since this is not a philosophy blog :( :)

Just don't listen to any of thse nasty comments, dear! It seems like especially in TT-World hypocracy seems to be the number one illness - there is too many people who have to have their say in everything and believe that they have become super important by behaving as if they were the lads' defenders of rights. It's silly - so just laugh about them! I love your posts! Since I moved, i cannot be "around" the lads anymore whenever I want so it is alway great to get a bit of a homely feeling wth your reports!

I never wrote here before, but I DO understand why people are not happy with the fact that you are going to all their houses with your camera, taking pictures, and then putting them on the internet. Ever heard of "stalking"? As a fan I am sure you know that the guys made it very clear that they are happy that the time where girls are showing up at their front door is over. Comparing that to a paparazzi is wrong, as they are actually positiv for them. They sell their picture on to magazines which means they are in the media which is one way of promoting their music and staying in peoples minds. What you are doing is no help to them at all. All it does makes them feel uncomftable and watched. Did you ever try and see it from their side? Do you feel comftable in what you are dong? I can't imagine you do, otherwhise you wouldnt ask that question. I am sure a lot of people will tell you "no, nothing is wrong with it, keep on doing it" That way they are happy that some other idiot is doing it and they can relax with the information you give them. But I for myself find it very disturbing and hope one day somebody will take you by the hand and put some sense in your mind.
Anyway, I don't want to offend you, but please think twice what you are doing and please at least try to see it from their point of few. They are all very private when it comes to their lifes and I can imagine when they would see what you do here they would not be happy.

Hey there,

I come to see your blog from time to time and I must admit that I learn things I didn't know yet about the lads. And your posts make me smile.You would do a fab paparazzi or reporter someday (if you're about 20 and studying or something^^). It's just that I respect the lads' privacy and that I know that I wouldn't want people to expose my private life on the internet like that even if it's still written in a secretive way. You know what I mean? The fact that you posted pictures of how Mark's house looks like and how his studio looks like is - in my opinion - too much information... even if you can't see the color and the details of the drawn house, it is still something that shows fans how his house looks like... I hope u don't get me wrong. I enjoy reading your blog but sometimes I think that there are things you shouldn't be posting.
I wanted to add something about your recent post: fans who read this blog and who are obsessed with Take That and who didn't get the chance to find out where they live or to meet them and stuff are simply jealous. Don't pay attention to their posts, they just want to make you feel bad about your luck or research or whatever you wanna call that lol. I would scare them off by announcing the end of this blog and you'll see how many fans will beg you not to close this website ;). Those rude fans just can't bear the fact that you found out so many things about them that they wish they knew.

I think I am in the postition to judge on whether from any of TTCs posts you could ever find out where the lads live or how their houses look like - ad believe me, you cannot. Her words seem very well chosen and there are no hints in it that enable anybody to find the lads. Thus, she is not disturbing their private sphere and personally - how could they feel disturbed by somebody walking past their houses? There are hundreds of people doing so every day! What they have in mind or what they are up to . who knoews, who cares? There is a total overreaction taking place in this discussion! If people who pretend to be annoyed about this sites report really are - then WHY do they come? This website has always been about Take That's lives in London and I cannot see one post that really harms them in any way. Nobody's camping outside their door, nobody is hiding in their bushes and NOBODY had ever posted a picture of an of their houses. Fair enough - you could argue about the drawings of Mark's house. But for god's sake - drawings were as far as it went!And you cannot NOT find his house because of these drawing since it only showed the back of his house - which one could NEVER EVER see! Its a different thing when real photos or even addresses appear on the net which in Mark Owen's case once happend. This is a no go but luckily ections were taken. What harm do a couple of bushes or trees or letter boxes or bins cause? Is anybody going to be mad enough to go around looking for a tree in London in order to find ot where the lads live??? If so - then god bless him. Hope he or she finds a better hobby soon! Start aking a fuss when there is an actal reason for it. Since there is none - leave the girl alone! She is not stalking them at all and if people do not like what she is posting - just don't visit this site! All this paranoia is totally inappropriate!

I wasn't trying to accuse her of anything. I was just telling her what I thought was wrong. I precised in my post that I didn't mean to sound mean or anything. Plus, I said in my post that I do like this website and that her posts are fun to read. I never critizised her badly.
So who are you to tell me off? Stop overreacting like that. Jeez...

LONDON said...

Hi guys, its alright, really. It even says in the FAQ that I am thankful if people let me know what they think is wrong. Now that doesnt automatically mean that I agree with everything that is said, but I think about it :-) I changed one post a while ago because one reader thought the info I gave was too much and I thought he/she was right. x

I agree with Kitty and I don't see how this blog should make the boys feel uncomfortable and watched. They are in the media all the time, how should a little posting about bushes in their gardens and letter boxes in their streets add any more distress to that???

Ever heard of google street view? Its not all hard to find out where they live if you have some grip. Marks adress is easily to be found over google anyway and since paparazzi made pics of him and Emma in front of the house in march 2010, it is no secret anymore at all.

The pictures give hints of the location, even the asphalt gives hints. I just checked for fun on streetview.
