It was a genuine question. I have no idea what it is. I do know a twat when I see one though.

Been there, seen it, done it, bought the T shirt, I can't be told, blah blah blah blah.............................................. .............


Its dull, and when people like that sit at a bar, supping their Gin and Tonics or spritzers and bleat on about ALL the things they have done, the things they have seen, etc etc etc then all that happens is that the people who have half a brain are thinking to themselves.................. Sad bastard.

Its strange that this forum (the Spain one) has descended into a bitchy pissing contest, strange that people feel the need to try and one up one another, try and prove they are better, know more, are better informed, strange that instead of the helpful, friendly, warm welcomes, that admittedly could go a little offtrack and wayward we now get people trying to prove they have bigger balls, they can piss the furthest! I am all for having a laugh, in fact I am the FIRST to have a laugh, but when its at the expense of others (except Bill of course) then its pathetic!

Jeez, people have a go at me for hijacking and standing my ground, keep telling me to grow up, some on here need to take a good look at yerselves and take yourselves outside and give yourselves a bloody good talking to.................

As for the list.............. JDR's name would NEVER be on it, I have more resect for the guy, you lot should learn a little too!
You are sooooooooooooo right with what youve said there Matt - gone it seems are the days where we all had fun and a laugh with each other and this is probably why the Spanish forum is now a former shadow of itself - what a shame - i used to look forward to coming on here at night for a good laugh but nowadays i have my laughs elsewhere

Too many people moaned about the people that liked to have a laugh, in the old days there was much greater interaction between posters, and tempers were always kept low, but now its "Them and Us" and if anyone tries to have a laugh its shot down in flames, now I admit, the threads did sometimes get out of hand but JDR sorted us out and we backed off, but now there is nothing!

I Agree, If you remember way back when I first joined One of my first posts was why is Spain my fun than France ( Thats in a Forum Perspective Not the Countries themselves ) these days I only come in to the Spain section to report posts. Infact i think I will report myself
