Why has the "building a house" thread been locked

That's just plan bizarre... unless Jim locked it?

Ban everyone under 30 as they, by and large, lack sense.

Do that & soon the only thing left on here will be the Death Notices thread.

He’s right though. People often look back at their lives before 30 and cringe.
Some have posted shite on an internet discussion board.
Others have prostituted themselves to a fizzy orange drink company for a sullied Irish pound.

Ironic that the poster who initiated this whole debate would undoubtedly be permanently banned by now if the rules were followed rigidly.

As someone else said - everyone needs to lighten up a bit and take themselves a little less seriously.  It's an anonymous internet discussion forum, not international diplomacy.

Harsh, I started the thread!

A rule of thumb I think is treat it like the local pub. If you wouldn't say something there for fear of getting a well deserved box on the mouth, then don't say it here.

Good rule of thumb
what about saying it in the local pub of the boyo or club you are slagging ?

mod Q - on this thread, the latest posts come up first, on others I have to go to the end of all the pages to get the latest post, is this a default setting i can change for the threads I read ?
thanks in advance
This is not Irish dancing. -RH
