I reported this post yesterday for 'silliness'.
Again the recommendation is the use of the foe list for any members simply getting on your nerves.

Are you aware that you can create a "foes list"? When you add a poster to it, their posts don't show up.

I have just tried it out. It does indeed provide some respite.
The use of the foes list is recommended by the moderators who are ploughing through multiple complaints this morning.

Any first name that scores highly on the scrabble board is a bit iffy if you ask me. Do you get a moneyback guarantee within 7 days if not satisfied?
Last chance if you continue to be an idiot I am going to remove you.

Re: Unwritten rules on epitaphs!?

What's the point Assuming the question is in the context of the `substantive point` I referred to, the original question was whether there is too wide a range of obituaries being shared on this forum. Sad as it is I think I am really not sure we need to be searching and posting for every chess play...

There are a couple of inactive Matthew Fletchers on the grading list, one from Hull the other from Gloucester. Neither are me.
I will remove a couple of posts if James does not clarify soon.

Much of "talk radio" in the US ended up as a hard right ghetto dominated by "shock jocks".

Hi Simon,

Lara says Alex is doing find and expects to be fit before OTB chess starts up again,

She also added that he is using this to get out of housework...er...oops!...hello Alex, are you OK mate?
Keeping him off the computer is perhaps too much of a challenge even for Lara :roll:
