The last Garden Gnome of Daresbury Laboratory is no more.

Rumour has it that the "GAFS were a pretty militant bunch so, I wouldn't be surprised if they had made a few enemies amongst the smoking fraternity of the lab.". This relates to the GAFS (or Gnome Anti Fag Squad) assualting the cigarette butt bin near their earthly domain; intimidating local smokers of the weeds of death.

Shock/Horror for today from the side entrance of C-block.

The last surviving Garden Gnome of Daresbury has
disappeared - presumed murdered.   What tenticle of
fear is gripping Daresbury in these times?  Sources
say that this could be final revenge again the "GAFS"
(Gnome Anti Fag Squad) that policed the butt bin
near the door. 

It is a pity that Detective Schofield is not here
at this moment - he would know what to do in
these dark times.  (Having done so well to detect the
appearance of Evil Twin Scott and Evil Twin Lachlan)
as revealed in his previous E-mails to this
group.

Lachlan.

Rumour has it that GAFS were a pretty militant bunch so, I wouldn't be
surprised if they had made a few enemies amongst the smoking fraternity
of the lab. But what I want to know is, is it just a conicidence that
the last surviving member of GAFS has gone missing just a few day after
his whereabouts were revealed on this very newsgroup; or is there more
to it? Is there a malicious anti-gnomic element within the lurkers of
this group? Such acts fit well with a male/female between the ages of 16
and 70 years, 5ft 2in to 6ft 4in, slim to big build with black
to light blond hair and shoes, and, most importantly, may have smoked
sometime during their life. I think we all know who that may be.
