Alan Sharp is an idea stealer, thug and loser

Alan Sharp: idea stealer, redundant incompetent and 'Stephen Ryder Casebook' thug.

It seems the wrong thing to do to a sunny day to waste it on this self promoting individual, and in this, all the members and editors of the website were in agreement.
Briefly, then, this man's profile can be defined as follows:

Anxious to promote himself on all counts.
He followed a course in business studies, where he gleaned afew insights into the type of promotion that is best applied to Amstrad speakers and large women's panties. He then transferred his socalled skills to studying the Jack the Ripper case, and no one's been able to get rid of him since. Flog it, flog it, visit them and flog it, is this man's business motto. He never, never, loses an opportunity to flog his unpopular product. His is the sort of self promotion that when applied to old crony life insurance gets monitored by BBC Watchdog candid cameras. It is very wearing.

Idea stealing.
This usually goes hand in hand with the basest marketing activities and attitudes, and Alan Sharp is no exception. Other people's precious work is this clumsy oaf's life source. He watches the blogs and the websites, according to our informers, preys on their ideas and adapts them to fit theories he's promoting in order to advance his career. He is to research as a chameleon is to a greenhouse plant, only his presence among students of the case is bloodsucking.

Crass incompetence and self aggrandisement.
Nearly every ambitious cheat has an inflated ego, and Alan Sharp is no exception. He is forever attempting to make out he's an expert, and never waits to be respected. Instead, he insists others respect him simply because he's lost time on the matter. He's a bully and a thug, and forces people to "give him his due respect."
Yet every time he puts forward an opinion, on 'Stephen Ryders' Casebook' or elsewhere, he is subject to correction from others, which usually proves appropriate.

However, like all predators with a product, he has a platform. Stephen Ryder's Casebook members are stupidly incompetent in the matter of Special Branch activity 1870-1890, and need a spokesperson. This is where Alan Sharp comes in with his socalled expertise. He obtains all his information from books that are already available on the market in the UK, arbitrarily adapts the information to the Jack the Ripper context and puts the adapted information forward as if it were the product of some sort of scholarship. He has never worked with primary source Special Branch material and has no idea what went on 1870-1900 in fact.
Stephen Ryder is anxious to promote a link with any type of competence in this field as he's afraid of being shown up for lack of it and for going about with a bunch of nutters. This is where Alan steps in. In America, from which standpoint 'Stephen Ryder's Jack the Ripper Casebook' is promoted, Alan Sharps rubbish can quite easily, (via Stephen Ryder), be promoted as 'expertise in the genre', and this is what's happening in the present.

But people don't seem to be easily taken in.
Despite the endless attempts to promote Alan Sharp, his blog and his first book (a comment on the Irish press coverage of Jack the Ripper, very, very dull) are unpopular. How does he resolve this? By ingratiating himself with established 'Jack the Ripper' experts, whose expertise is undermined by their lack of success but who nonetheless command a certain amount of respect on account of their long standing redundant efforts and good manners. He endlessly namedrops these individuals. (He endlessly namedrops any individual in fact. He'd namedrop Ghandi and Mark Thatcher in the same sentance if he possibly could).

Scroll down to the post entitled 'Alot of loons' for more information and links to Alan's sites and contributions to Stephen Ryder's outfit.

Alan Sharp does have one paradoxical aspect to hs nature; all bores do. Despite his endless, persistent self promotion, he seems unreluctant to admit ( and frequently demonstrates it) that he lives in a revolting 'nutter/loser' style bedsit and his wife and children have thrown him out.

Here the extent of Alan Sharp's malice is well demsonstrated. He has contributed to putting up the following blogs, the main author being Philip Hutchinson.
Have you ever come across such a malicious loser as Alan Sharp?


Alan Sharp apologises for stealing other authors' ideas

Alan Sharp has sent in the following apology, and we are pleased to produce it on his behalf.

( nb we should explain that the expression 'to be sent to Coventry' means 'to be ignored'.)


I would like to offer my deepest sympathy with young Jack the Ripper students offended by my greasy mop of hair and my outsize women's panties style sales techniques. Thanks to the web-team for offering me this space.

It all began, when I was a young boy. I asked my mother why she was ignoring me, and she told me I had been '
sent to Coventry'. We had a small working class house by the sea, and my father was unemployed and I couldn't understand why I 'd been sent to such an expensive location. Especially as I seemed to be in the diner, at home. Had anyone sent me anywhere atall? My father was in the lounge watching Captain Pugwash cartoons , and I walked through and asked him:- " Why am I in Coventry Dad?"

And it was then that he told me one of the profoundest secrets of my past. I had big ears. Noddy ears. They were enormous. I had picked up the family secret about my mothers bloomers. She had been wearing two pairs, one for her and another for my father's lover, ever since she found out about their affair. Unwittingly, quite without my own knowledge or consent, I had become a spy.

I was so ashamed. I knew my parents had let my hair grow down for a reason: these were the days when men wore their hair reasonably but flatteringly short and had few Freudian ideas about it ( unlike senior ripperologist Stuart Evans.) So this was why my hair was the huge mop I had difficulty seeing out underneath.

So what was I to do? I couldn't cut my mop off, yet I could hardly say I didn't have the ears I did. What about my mothers bloomers? The family name?

From that day on I have been all ears, covered by an enormous mop -like subterfuge. But I want you to know I have never wanted to tune into your secrets and steal your work. That TV like arial you sometimes see sticking out of my nose has nothing to do with anything; it stuck there after I stood behind my TV set at 1.00 am for three hours after Dan Norder sent me his round the group e-mail on how to face set backs. It only pickes up on your secret research from time to time.
Fear not, though. Whenever I accidentally steal your work I will always adapt it so it fits my 'theory' and doesn't look as if you thought of it yourself. This way I'll get the credit and you can forget you existed.

Thankyou for hearing my apology, and also for listening to my colon irrigation problems.

Alan Sharp.

Ripperologist author Alan Sharp discovers he's a dickhead


The dead has arisen.

Alan Sharp comes out of the Closet.

Not to be outdone by Lavender Lady, the Stephen Ryder Casebook conspiracy tranny from Massachussets, Ripperologist Alan Sharp has written a post entitled 'I confess.'

Alan Sharp once fell onto women as does a large wardrobe.

But now he has discovered his bicycle.


Last year he wrote a post repudiating the smelly tiresome wheely things.

Alan Sharp comes out of the closet, and makes a stink.

The dead has arisen!

( As an aside if you were a teenager then it is a little moving to read the old Freddie stories.)

Alan and his loser photo blog

This produced a rumbling laugh in the author of this blog ( of the kind we enjoy anticipating) who surfed the web quickly to get you guys some stuff, while we wait for the two in depth studies to come up ...He laughed and said -Oh nO...


We can't encourage you strongly enough
to go on a 'cloudy day treck' round the scenes of the demolished 'Whitechapel Ripper sites' with Alan Sharp and his 2 pixel camera. Not because it has had eleven hits on it since last Wednesday* ( he has unlinked it from his blog website), but you might have lost your own copy of 'Stewart Evans' Complete JTR sourcebook'.
It's also a question to ponder if you're long in time to waste: 'Why Alan?'

"On this weblog I am intending to tell the story of the 1888 Whitechapel Murders of Jack the Ripper through photographs of the locations in which important events occurred as they look today".

Alan, if you want to remove a duff site from TopBlogs, change it's URL on the user profile and it'll disappear with Jack, as with your publishers.


* we accept TopBlogs is on the blink, but all the same.

Alan Sharp- caption this.

Alan Sharp, ripperologist, can't sell his books

Dan Norder has announced that he is employing Alan Sharp as new co editor of 'Ripper Notes'; he had to stand high on a cardboard box and borrow Alan's trumpet, as no one was listening. Anyhow, he is.

Dan Norder identity link: Cut and paste ( http://forum.casebook.org/member.php?u=1778 ) to your toolbar if the above link doesn't connect you).


Alan Sharp, has admitted he has only sold 250 copies of his book since its release last July! All his excuses via this link.



Alan Sharp hasn't been signed up for his book on Comissioner Anderson. He's thinking of leaving Stephen Ryder's Casebook and coming over to us. He's repeatedly stating he's 'pro Robin Hood' and he's sent us a photograph of a Jacobite terrorist outfit he bought off ebay.



We've turned him down. It's not about tights. Anyone else thinking of sending us pictures of themselves in stockings please take note.

Alan Sharp, Casebook thug & redundant incompetent

Casebook thug's internet profiles.

It has been suggested that it may help to see the available internet profiles about the men calling themselves experts on the 'Jack the Ripper' case who have been responsible for the bullying, malice and incompetence in the past, so that the reader can explore their posts at length.

The main list consists of:

Casebook owner and administrator Mr Stephen Ryder (see picture left). ( Copy paste the link http://www.casebook.org/about_the_casebook/cbstaff.html if you can't connect direct.)

Ivor Edwards Runs a third rate website called jtrforums. Known thug, bully and idea stealer. Criminal with 30 years experience in top security jails. Now in quaisi retirement.

Tom Colwell Wescott. ( Copy paste the link http://forum.casebook.org/member.php?u=1998 onto your toolbar if you can't connect direct). Bully and thug who contantly dominates the Casebook website. A regular writer for the casebook associated Ripper Notes magazine, plays in a heavy metal band. Stars in films about gangsters when he isn't doing time.

Dan Norder, who runs the magazine "Ripper Notes". ( Copy paste the link http://forum.casebook.org/member.php?u=1778 onto your toolbar if you can't connect direct.) Known bully and malicious commenter. Owner of 'Inkling's Press', that publishes 'ripper information' that tends to appear on Casebook.

Philip Hutchinson ( spell his name right at all times) a ghost tour guide who lives in Guildford UK. Known malicious bully. ( Copy past the link http://forum.casebook.org/member.php?u=1938 onto your toolbar if you can't connect direct.) The lowest IQ of all these cited.

A P Wolf, another of the pensioner thugs who despite his raging against the bullying of his comrades ( thanks AP, saved us alot of work) is quite a bully himself. Author of a Jack the Ripper book citing a suspect recently criticised for being a 'pointles bum stabber.' ( Copy paste the link http://forum.casebook.org/member.php?u=1733 onto your toolbar if you can't connect direct.)

Alan Sharp, self promoting but uninformed author on anything connected to pre modern Special Branch, on the lookout for information. ( Copy paste the link http://forum.casebook.org/member.php?u=1735 onto your toolbar if you can't connect direct.) Opportunist with a sad background. Runs an unpopular blog called 'Random Burblings', which he also uses to self promote. He is in something of a desperate situation in life, and will do anything to try and push his clumsy self to the fore including bullying, idea stealing and libel.

Stan Russo, author published by Dan Norder's publishing house, 'Inkling's press. Member of jtrforums. Known web harasser, who sends people 100 vicious pointless emails in a day. His identity at present on Casebook is being rooted out.

Mr. Poster, racist with no real knowledge. Bully and pest who regularly appears on Casebook. ( Copy past the link http://forum.casebook.org/member.php?u=2035 onto your toolbar if you can't connect direct.)

Last but not least, the administrator Stephen's girlfriend, Ally, who nuisances the Casebook site all day with petty self promotional spite. ( Copy paste the link http://forum.casebook.org/member.php?u=2085 onto your toolbar if you can't connect direct.)

There are numerous other malicious commenters on Stephen Ryder's website, who tend to leap on the bandwagon as and when one of the above starts up, which is most of the time. There appears to be no need to list them here as they are self evident on the casebook message boards.
