It may be apt for some and I can understand why they use it but for me, I like to hear (read) what people have to say. Even if I don't agree with them.
Even Agrorora has me on ignore, yet he seems unable to refrain from mentioning me from time to time so what's the point of him using it. He loves my posts and can't get enough of them. I'm his cheap thrill. He says he is using a borrowed laptop and this is why he can see my posts because he hasn't got me on ignore on it..?? Well, I believe that you have to log in as your user name i.e. Agrorara, then put in your password and hey presto, from any connection in the world your settings should not have changed and I should still be on ignore.. Me thinks he likes to read what I've read.. Just to stir it a little but I don't mind.. Carry on columbo..
True, where ever in the world you log in the settings will be the same.
He has me on ignore too as he doesn`t like me disagreeing with his Googling results.

We would end up with a lot of different forums of one. We could all write posts to ourselves, read the post and answer.

Probably be ideal for a couple of regular posters,
Though I'm willing to bet they'd still manage to pick an arguement with themselves...

If that's the case then I apologise for that aspect of my post, and will read up on the forum rules, in order to avoid any future contraventions.

The rules do not allow you to post a PM.

OK guys - lets drop the personal stuff and stick to the subject of the thread.

If not it will just get closed.

Spain is not Greece. Greece entered the European Union because it misrepresented its numbers (with the invaluable help of Wall Street, of course) and because Germany allowed the entrance of Greece because had a market in Greece and Eastern Europe. At the end these countries entered very quickly, which is as it should have been the process. Now we are seeing the consequences

Therefore, Greece is not going to go bankrupt, because Greece is within the Euro. And if Greece is not going to go into bankruptcy, much less Spain, because Spain is not Greece

Now, I remember some things, especially the German attacks against Greece, and is to remind the Germans that all the europeans we pay its reunification, the European Union allowed to Germany a deficit of 3.5% (and there were no threats of expulsion Germany) and that as we enter the Euro (to me no one asked me if I wanted the Euro, nor to me nor to 45 million spanish) put this coin in the same value as the German currency, so that the German currency not lost value. The conclusion is that if once I paid 50 pesetas or less for a coffee, now I pay 1 Euro (166 pesetas)

I would like to return to the peseta
