Searchable threads in one long post:


Suzanne Martin has a documented history of supporting doxxing (posting addresses and phone numbers), uploading private photos to facebook, contacting employers and harassment, but when the tables are turned she is the first to complain to facebook, twitter, ISPs and supposedly multiple law enforcement agencies to have the material removed.

While backers are more than £500k out of pocket and RCL apparently have no time for updates, Suzanne Martin spends her time trying to remove material from the internet. Any material that the team notices has been removed will be archived here for everyone to see. The entire team would prefer Suzanne spends her time delivering the Vega+ using the ringfenced funds than wasting her time on takedown notices. A more efficient way to silence the twitter users would be a complete and honest update of the project showing the completed Vega+ units rolling off the production line and some evidence of the ringfenced funds in the bank account.

Deleted images from complaints

A twitter user had their account locked for 12 hours after Suzanne Martin reported several tweets. The first tweet was posted on 24/11/2017 and said: Nice to know that BIG OLD SUZZY! has been spending the £512k wisely "from bag to hag"

To unblock their account, the same user was forced to remove a second tweet of Suzanne Martin with Marjorie Dawes of Fat Fighters:

Another twitter user had their account blocked on 02/12/2017 and was forced to delete 3 tweets to unblock it. The first tweet had no text apart from the hashtag #zxvega and included an image of David Levy holding a Vega+ prototype and a Big Daddy trophy, whilst Suzanne Martin experiences a nip slip wardrobe malfunction.

The second tweet included an image of Suzanne Martin eating a meal at McDonalds whilst saying "And this is just the starter. Thanks Indie backers :)". The original tweet said "Looks like Suzanne Martin is getting an early start with a light lunch for that hard days work ahead on the Vega+ #zxvega"

The third and final tweet that had to be deleted featured no text apart from the hashtag #zxvega and included a satirical "Sunday Sport exclusive" news article about David Levy crashing his car while receiving a handjob from his sex robot Suzanne. The full text included in the article:

An elderly perverted inventor and Sunday club member was burned by technology when his home-made SEX ROBOT made him crash his car!

Cloud headed David Levy spent £513,000 of investor funds and almost two years building the fully-functioning animatronic lust android in his one bedroom flat in London.

The 72-year-old named it Suzanne - after his daughter - on completing the project in February.

But after just four months of happiness and a "full and active" sex life, Suzanne is now a tangled mass of melted plastic and broken circuit boards, while David is recovering from his car accident injuries.

The former draughts player explained: "It was a lovely evening and I decided to take Suzanne for a spin in the hills.

"But some boy racers came around a corner and almost forced me off the road. The window was down, so I leaned out, waved my fist and shouted "You wankers! I will ruin you! I’ve done it before, and I will do it again!"

"Unfortunately, Suzanne heard the word 'wank' and took it as a command. Within a split second she'd unfastened me and was pleasuring me manually."

But then disaster befell the loved-up pair.

David said: "I don't know if it was a software glitch or a hardware failure, but suddenly Suzanne went berserk - yanking away at my nano-penis.

"I yelled 'Stop Suzanne' and even shouted 'VEGA+', the code word for a full system shutdown. But she kept tugging.

"Needless to say, I lost control of the Corsa, hit a roadside rock and we flipped. Suzanne kept tugging away for a few moments, then short-circuited and burst into flames.

"I suffered a dislocated collar bone and a twisted knee but managed to pull her free. She was well alight by then and smelled of, well, burning plastic and KFC. There were circuit boards all over the place as she was made from prototype Vega+ parts as we never made the Vega+.

"I must have blacked out because when I woke up as I was being loaded into the ambulance, there was a fireman stamping on Suzanne to put out the flames.

"I shouted 'NOOOOO' - but I knew she was already gone."

Dr David Levy crashes car while homemade sexbot Suzanne giving him a handjob

On Friday 8/12/2017, a twitter account was blocked for "posting or sharing privately produced/distributed intimate media of someone without their express consent". One of the taken down tweets was a comedy article about David Levy's sex robot Suzy:

Lightning strikes twice as revamped sex robot also goes up in flames!

David was left with third degree burns for the second time in a year after his home-made SEX ROBOT malfunctioned and his transit van caught alight!

David Levy has never been a quitter. After a string of business failures and the public humiliation of a car crash involving his first sex robot 'Suzanne', most expected him to head off to a retirement village in Ramsgate and disappear from the public spotlight, tail firmly between his legs. Not so.

"I've been called everything under the sun", David says. "A cloud headed bastard. A conman. A thief. A confidence trickster. A rip-off merchant. A stupid, deluded sex-robot obsessed fuckwit. Water off a duck's back to me. The only insult that hurt was someone that said I was ‘shit at chess’. Aside from a 4-nil toweling by a computer way back in 1989, I did manage to win just over half my matches you know."

After 'Suzanne' went up in smoke earlier in the year, David was depressed - and broke. But an incredible sequence of events saw his sex-robot dream return.

"My real life daughter Suzanne managed to find 17 cheques for £5,000 each down the back of her sofa. I was back in business!"

David assembled a crack team at once to start work on the new sex-robot. No expense was spared.

"I wanted - needed - to retain a monument to the past, while embracing the future. So the new robot would be named 'Suzy' - keeping the history of 'Suzanne' while kicking it up a notch. I doubled her memory capacity compared to the original by placing the last 2 Vega+ prototypes inside her. The cracked screen didn't matter on the second one, as nobody would see it anyway." The team made quick progress, although it did require a lot of testing.

“I was working 24/7, getting into every nook and cranny, testing every last feature of ‘Suzy’. It was gruelling work, and I still had to attend the regular 4am meetings with the rest of eam at the Intelligent Toys team at Ramsgate KFC.

According to David, the testing was hard work but well worth it, as he found a major problem.

"The buttons on ‘Suzy’ turned out to be faulty", David says. "That caused her breasts to sag, and that in turn caused a huge weight imbalance and she had a tendency to topple over. The final fix was quite simple - we just expanded her belly, allowing her boobs to droop naturally. And feedback on the larger Suzy version 2 has been generally positive. We’re really excited about this."

But it was all about to go horribly wrong for the Intelligent Toys team.

"The entire team had been assembled. We loaded her into the van, ready to demonstrate her at Gamescon. I decided to let Lee and Janko ride up front, while I pulled the modesty curtain and undressed in preparation for a 'full systems test' in the back. I switched her on, gave her the start command, and she began pleasuring me."

"After about 15 seconds, just as my nano-penis was beginning to tire, error message 503 popped up on the Vega+ display saying Suzy had been disabled due to non-payment. I tried resetting her by yelling out the command 'launch party', but each time she just short-circuited and sparked. The previous contractor must have installed some kind of back-door passage, as she began yelling out “LEAVE-EYE ME ALONE!” and was screaming out loud for fried chicken. After several failed reset attempts, the van drove past a KFC outlet and she went full-potato. Smoke began pouring out every orifice and she caught alight."

"The extra padding we added to the stomach turned out to be a design flaw as it was extremely flamable, and the van was soon an inferno. I yelled for Janko to pull the van over at once, and I barely managed to open the back door, bursting out with my trousers at half-mast just as she exploded."

David reflects on this latest setback whilst receiving attention for his burns in hospital. "I'm convinced that contractor we hired (and subsequently fired) sabotaged ‘Suzy’ somehow. For now, the sexbot dream is over. RIP Suzy.”
