Naked Fan Girls Want Your Money!

This might come as a shock to you but the Internet is full of people’s naked bits!

How this story might be portrayed in the press...

Neither of these people accurately represent Doctor Who fans.

You only have to think of the most esoteric thing like ‘African Swallows’ and BANG someone’s wobbly parts are on your screen like Godwin’s Law in suspenders.

Now what’s agreed between consenting adults and sites that are open and legitmate about what they’re doing and how much it’ll cost is perfectly fine (if you’re into that sort of thing) but what if someone was allegedly using your own esoteric passion, say Doctor Who, dishonestly with the intention of making money from it?

SFX has been indulging in a little investigative journalism and has found something rotten that combines desperate elements such as Twitter, Doctor Who and naked fan girls.

This cautionary tale begins when @Roguecyberman joins Twitter, befriends lots of Doctor Who fans and begins to tweet about which episodes he’s been watching and so on.

A short while later a website roguecyberman.com is registered with WhoisGuard – a site used mostly to protect registered users from spam – although it can also be used to hide your identity acting as the middle man between you and your site.

What then ensued was both fascinating and slightly scary. It’s certainly concerning and telling in this day and age that someone should cynically exploit any online community, but particularly sad that Doctor Who fans have been targeted in this way.

The facts are, however, that @roguecyberman has done nothing illegal and the site does include the small print stating you will be charged if you don’t cancel your trial. Of course what isn’t clear, and what probably never will be clear, is whether or not the girls were genuine. After all, this is the Internet, the home of anonymity.

Ultimately, you’re on your own when it comes to the seedier side of life online – so it is best avoided.

About the Author

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    I’m not buying it frankly. I spoke to Katie on several occasions so I know she’s real. There are also other people on twitter who know her and have spoken to her and webcammed with her so she does exist. I also know that she was harassed months ago by a guy on twitter. She tweeted this months ago saying that someone was hassling her and it upset her.

    Soon after that she had her twitter account suspended and then later reinstated. Coincidence or well coordinated complaints to try and cover the harassment and name calling?

    Something else that stinks – I watched the conversation between RC and IB on Saturday and noticed that when IB said (and I’m paraphrasing here) “Prove that the models are real and who they say they are” RC replied “No problem, come down to Brighton and meet me and them at a photoshoot”.

    IB declined. Now, if he was the investigative journalist he claims to be why didn’t he get in his car and go and meet them? Easy answer – because if he had have met them he wouldn’t have been able to write the story which basically gets as close as it can to accusing them of duplicity without stepping on any legal mines.

    Even stranger than that, the article attracted comments which were promptly removed when it appeared that accusations were actually being made when of course IB knew full well that those accusations weren’t true since he had already said they were impossible to prove on way or the other.

    IB had the opportunity to interview the photographer and the models face to face and ascertain for himself whether or not they were Whovians. Why didn’t he do this?

    It’s also very telling that twitter suspended the accounts of the photographer and the models and the website itself AFTER the article was written, effectively wiping out any proof of the offer made to IB.

    Again, coincidence or coordinated complaints?

    Something isn’t right here.

    When I read the article on SFX my first thought was that they must have been desperate for a story. I also found the hinted accusation that the photographer was somehow grooming girls very uncomfortable since there was no evidence of this whatsoever. The author even covered himself by adding disclaimers that no one was doing anything illegal almost as though he knew what he was writing was over accusatory. And now I see it being regurgitated on other blogs like this one with increasingly inflammatory language like “fan girls scam for sex” which is both misleading and unfair. A few girls on twitter who claim to know the girl in question have now all had their accounts suspended as well today after springing to Katie’s aid which does seem very strange and slightly machiavellian.

    As David says, it all looks like a coordinated effort to keep this bloke and his little harem of girls down with anyone that stands up for them being accused of collusion. The trouble is that the more people throw online stones at them the more it looks like a lynch mob.


    • Dalek Kane and David:

      I think we all appreciate your input to this. It was an unusual story but I don’t really think SFX knew what they were doing – I certainly don’t think they should have published it in the form they did.

      As far as I’m concerned the comments on Kasterborous are as important as the articles they discuss, so thanks for helping our readers to understand more about what is going on here.

    Its not enough to keep repeating the same article all over the web is it?! First off, what the fracking hell has a young naked girl got to do with Doctor Who? I do not get it, if you are getting sucked in to this sort of seedy nonsense then there is some thing very, very wrong?
    I reckon you should delete your accounts, disconnect your computers and go out and speak to some real people before its all too late!
