About Baldy Bill[edit]

"Baldy Bill" currently (2013) lives in South West England and was born during the 1970s. He currently works in a technical role for a FTSE-250 company. He will not be giving any other identifying private information but if you really think you know who he is, why not ask him the old-fashioned way? Can anyone reading this remember the days when we picked up a phone and actually spoke on it, or, worse still, contacted someone face-to-face?

  • He's a life-long car enthusiast so this is inevitable:

’s Thi's user know's that not every word that end's with s need's an apostrophe and will remove misused apostrophe's from Wikipedia with extreme prejudice.
’s This user realises that plural nouns should not have an apostrophe while possessive words should!
