Default So anyhow where were we....

The racism and general bigotry seems to have moved down from 11 on the spinal tap scale to a moderate 8... I thought i might reappear

As you were...

Default Re: So anyhow where were we....

I closed the account one afternoon a few months ago, I had reached a point where I was sick of every thread descending into the usual farce of bigotry and racism.
Anyhow I hadn't expected too many noticed (or cared!) it wasn't about that.

no worries. it's better to leave quietly by the back door anyway i think..

it has improved slightly over the last few weeks although i'm afraid it could flare up again at any point. we will have to wait and see..

possibly if memory serves we are both in our 30's, I know I am at least 50% right in that answer.

However mentally I am currently hovering somewhere slightly above juvenile

Captain Renault: What in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?
Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.
Captain Renault: The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.

The reason everything descended into racism is because everything is racist now.
  • Don't agree with someone - they're a racist!
  • They said something bad about your religion - why that's racism too!
  • Cut you up in the car park...bloody racists!

Bigotry is another matter though - some of us are guilty of that for sure.

I would say welcome back but I'm far too busy building wooden crosses for the front lawn...does anyone know how to get red stains out of white clothes, especially hoods?
