Didn't you start a similar thread recently Tony?

Maybe it shows the type of geek i am, but thought Channel 4's 'Coalition' drama last night was first class, well worth watching (if you've an interest!)
Today an 70+ year old man, who was a complete stranger, came up to me, put his hand on my face and started to stroke my beard.
Does no-one know what boundaries are anymore?
Never pictured you as a type who u would have a beard now
I'd steer clear of the southbank in London if you are ever over so!
Related: In American shops they have a fierce habit of putting the dollar bills on your hand and setting the coins on top. The problem with this is either the coins slide off and end up on the floor, or you have to drop everything and rush to catch them before they do. Either way it's awkward. I appreciate it when they put the coins in your hand first and put the bills on top. When they do it the wrong way I've been known to give them a bit of advice about how to do it right.
Lads i have been a long time reader and contributor to this board for a long time. It was a source of good information and guidance on a range of topics. It was also fun at times with some good laugh out loud moments.
Lately the board has become nothing more than a place for a select few who hijack threads to insult and rile each other.
The general board has become a pain in the ass to read and is being ruined by a handful of posters and if the mods dont do something soon it will kill this discussion board
Barely spend more than 10 mins a week on here for the same reason.
Not complaining about it - the gaaboard isn't important - but the explanation given above is spot on. The same people argue about the same things, fruitlessly hoping their words of wisdom over and over again will finally break the resolve of the other. Utterly pointless and brain-aching. Sorta took whatever crack there was in it and worded it into submission.
But, as the man says, ye don't have to read it and that's true I suppose.
Where's has the irreverence, the slagging (slegging) and good oul shit-talk gone?
Just noticed this quality post by Sidney, by wading through the crap, which went completely unnoticed...sums it up - http://gaaboard.com/board/index.php?topic=20748.msg1448698#msg1448698 - that's feckin brilliant.
You can usually weigh up a poster and make your point in 2 posts if you feel strongly about it.....anything beyond that staggers into boredom.
Ziggy should place a 2-post cap on topics and also have a w**ker of the week thread. I nominate Ziggy. Also, anyone who makes the same point twice sits in the sin bin for a week.
And while you're at it ziggy - you haven't done a mywayaccess risk assessment of the general discussion thread.
2FM news on the way home last night;
Top of the list, Some young cub leaves a boy band or other
Second on the list; British oaf leaves a TV show for punching the producer in the face.
Third on the list; Elaine O'Hara murder trial.
Am I missing something, but is 'celebrity gossip' now mainstream news?
Oh, and Shefflin retiring got briefly touched on in the sports bulletin... c*nts.
I'm in agreement.
Can you not do something about it???
As you are a mod??
