How come the man's name isn't mentioned?

and how can a court in 'wabba wabba' be taken seriously? (tee-hee) - Imind (talk) 16:24, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

His name isn't mentioned because the writer of the article is in Australia, and hence bound by Australian laws that don't like people breaching the privacy of those currently in court (radio and TV hosts have gotten into trouble for naming people involved in trials before). And it's in Wagga Wagga - and some say that you shouldn't call Wagga Wagga Wagga, and you definitely shouldn't call Woy Woy Woy. Chris Mann (Say hi!|Stalk me!) 00:26, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

The funny thing is that they plastered his name all over the place when he was a fugitive, but now that he is in custody, they expect people to forget his name? --SVTCobra 20:49, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Obviously alzheimers is endemic in Australia. --Brian McNeil / talk 20:51, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
