Gosh, thank you.

very confusing...that’s why we don’t allow duplicate threads/posts. Bristol got away with it this time.

Funnily enough I had a look at the rules earlier because my recollection was that while duplicate threads were not allowed, duplicate posts were - or at least not mentioned.

But it appears there has been a change. I have read three times and I see nothing about duplicate posts or threads.

Perhaps this is in recognition of every part of the forum having a covid thread and a US election style thread

Interviewer: But the police have film of Dinsdale actually nailing your head to the floor.

Stig: (pause) Oh yeah, he did that.

Interviewer: Why?

Stig: Well he had to, didn't he? I mean there was nothing else he could do, be fair. I had transgressed the unwritten law.

If that had been me breaking them rules,that there mouse would have slapped me up good, then kicked my ass, a stern look wagged her finger at me and deleted me.
