  1. I've almost stopped coming here as well (lost old email address, so had to sign up again with new username, but I've been around since 2010 as a (previously) active reader and poster...) Part of that is because of the ads, but a much bigger put-off has been the increasingly asinine, narcissistic and point-scoring exchanges on some of what used to be the best threads of all. Biggest case in point for me the "BTL Scum Regrouping" - the so-called "party thread," which used to be a daily draw for me - I'd pop in for no other reason than to check out the latest soap opera-esque goings-on of Busta, Ros, 'Nessa and the rest of the 118 / P/Tripes goons. That whole thread has recently been hijacked by two keyboard-warriors who just 'won't let it lie' (h/t Vic and Bob...) One who once wrote a half-decent e-book, but now seems to think s/he is the greatest academic brain of all time (my mental picture - an egocentric, pontificating junior teacher with no social life and too much time on their hands) and the other who appears to be the Zombie rebirth of the Venger-bot. Both popping away at each other endlessly, in increasingly long and tedious posts / cross-posts, making troll accusations etc, when TBH I can't see what they're even arguing about. When I sauntered over at some point yesterday afternoon (in guest mode) that particular thread was alive with the sound of hubris and teeth-gnashing, and there were three or four other threads with posts on the same day - the rest of the first page seemed like it was all threads with "last posts" going all the way back to the previous day. And Page Two was all at least a day old, going down to 2-3 days old at the foot. The only thread with real life in it was the "Brexit - What happens next" one, and I'm not planning to waste any of my life reading the sectarian drivel on that! (By way of a real-time update; at the time of typing this the last thread on Page One ("The Smoking Gun") was last posted to 23 hours ago - I honestly can't remember when the forum was as dead as that, at any time let alone on a Thursday afternoon...) Maybe the time for this to be a relevant and vibrant forum has passed. I used to be on here every day - usually badly to the detriment of my productivity - and it looks like I'm not the only one voting with my feet. Shame really. This used to be a place where I learned stuff and had fun. Now it seems to be a place for a small number of "troll-hunters" and pontificaters to wave bits of their anatomy about and try to look clever... Ads - yeah they're bad. But IMHO they're a sideshow compared with the real reasons I don't bother to come over much any more... B2
  2. Great tool and thanks. What happened to the "Add a Comment" function? I added a comment to a local property, which went live and then disappeared less than 48 hours later - and now I can't see the "Comments" function at all. Have I sinned somehow?! Did the EA get the hump and demand it was taken down, and now I'm disabled from adding / seeing comments, or is there some other explanation? Not really that arsed about the comments function in the long run, TBH, but am interested. In the meantime, thanks again - it's great to see some decent falls building up from the kite-flyers in GU10 :) B2
  3. Yup. How about you're an ex-Foxtons dude, possibly with quite a few shares from your days there... Then you set up BornYesterday Estate Agents in DFL-on-Wey, a famous sleepy Surrey town full of ex Barnes and Putney lawyers and other effluent..... Followed by some good old hubristic extra local branches, swallowing up a couple of SheetGobbler and Sons operations along the way - whilst doing a couple of major (guess what?!) housing developments on the side. Hey - what could possibly go wrong? Diversification? That's for sissies who dun got Business Degrees and sh!t man. We're the Hubris Boys, who make P118 look positively sensible. I think I may also die from a popcorn overdose, before this is all over. But no doubt his every-smarmy Missus will keep looking down her nose at everyone around her until the very last. I wonder if The Herald will report the bankruptcy hearing?! B
  4. I've heard that one before as well, and did consider it before posting!! Sadly, knowing my own rather dull surfing habits I know it's not the case - if it was, it would be more likely to show up a Screwfix or B&Q pop-up
  5. And from an in-thread advert from the same page... Well, I suppose that's one solution. Not the most immediate one that sprang to my mind, but the way the book and consulting phone call sales are going I guess there's some tough head-scratching and brainstorming going on over there... B2
  6. Yup. Me too... It's like I personally gunned down the "Patron Saint of the £3 CarWash"
  7. Yup. Facebook "Friends" list being cleaned ruthlessly right now. There are people you tolerate, because your kids go to school with their kids, and it's a smart move to "play nice..." Then you get patronised by some c***, who comes out with sh!te like "I hope you can sleep well tonight, in the storm. Jesus did, so I will also try to..." At which point I'm afraid I just think " **** off and die, [email protected] I now realise why I thought you were a total c*ck all these years. Now our kids have left school, I have no reason to spend even one further second in your weird and judgemental sphere of influence..." Refreshing really. Independence Day has come a bit early for me, no matter what the referendum outcome
  8. You are, surely, having a complete and utter fecking giraffe, aren't you? What I posted earlier, from that gobby Remain tool, has been absolutely typical of the sh!te coming out from their camp. RACIST....XENOPHOBE...KNUCKLE-DRAGGING...F**KTARD - I've not heard anything like that - not even once - from the Leave side who are apparently supposed to be the neanderthals..
  9. Thankfully only a friend of a friend, so no need to hit the "ctnu" button!!
  10. And some more. I'm almost speechless - I assumed it was a wind up at first, but this Remainiac's follow-up responses were completely aligned with the original.. First post; Well time to be diplomatic. To anyone voting leave, you're a ******ing idiot who hasn't thought through the consequences. First thing you'll achieve is instigate the break up of the United Kingdom as Scotland get a 2nd referendum. Then a ******ing recession. You're not an expert of economics and you're not an expert of constitutional law. So listen to a couple and make a ******ing logical decision. Jesus H. Christ. One follow-up, after some reasoned debate... Mine isn't, like I say neither of us are experts on economics or constitutional law. So I've listened to experts and taken their advice. Thr question is: HOW IS YOUR OPINION MORE IMPORTANT THAN PEOPLE WHO HAVE SPENT THERE ADULT LIFE RESEARCHING THESE FIELDS? And finally... It does. If you can't make a logical decision almost by definition you are a idiot. '******ing' only stresses my frustration. Like the man says... Jesus H Christ...
  11. Yup. More abuse and patronising bilge overnight. Made the heretical mistake of posting the "Four Lies" story, and pointing out that the "totally impartial" Scouse academic was a totally biased paid stooge, and got absolutely fecking mullered by the South East Leftie brigade. Accused of all sorts, and no doubt its going to take a lot of sorting out afterwards - with the ones I can be arsed to sort it out with. But what the hell. If I've persuaded just a couple of "Undecideds" to vote "Out," then then it was worth it. FFS, Some people have put their whole careers and reputations on the line, to campaign for what they believe is the right vote, and stand up for free speech. A couple of school teachers and public sector drones having a hissy fit isn't really a showstopper!! HID to all, and hang in there. At least it's not SJD anymore... (clue - the Patron Saint of the Three Pound Carwash... ) B
  12. Too bloody right. But please can someone let me know how I get rid of the constant popups from that total grinning wkaner at the head of these pages? I've lost count of the number of times I've reported them as "repetitive" "irrelevant" "the dribblings of some complete CTNU" (OK, that wasn't an option - just in my dreams...) but they STILL keep popping up.
  13. Keep the faith Billy It's really tough on Facebook, because everyone knows who you are so it's not as easy as gobbing off on HPC!! On the other hand, your real mates will appreciate you might see things differently, and value yoru opinion. The ones that don't are cntsu. I've found it a neat opportunity to clear out my friends list to people who aren't as bigoted as Gordon Brown - and I don't miss the others one jot. Stay strong bud. It's nearly over. B
  14. Cheers. Spot on and done. Awaiting the abuse from my chattering class / public sector troughing drone / right on leftie contacts even as I type. But in fairness, this referendum has been a handy chance to cull my "friends" list down, and get rid of a variety of ctnus that I can't remember why I connected with them in the first place!!!
  15. Do you have a link for that please? I'd love to share it on my Facebook page... Cheers. Buzz
  16. Me too. OUT on Facebook. I have the misfortune to be a Northerner by birth, brought up of working to middle class stock, who now lives in Surrey and has a half decent job. But with several kids who I don't seeing have any future here; a bit of an anarchist who wants to see disruptive change to the current appalling status quo; a desire for true democracy; and now a total distrust of the career politicians, troughing public sector / lecturer / academic sh!te etc. And being a Northerner, I don't have any fear of the chattering classes labelling me a racist / xenophobe, because the people who really know me, know otherwise. But boy, am I getting myself a new asshole ripped every day by the sneering "intelligentsia...." However, I'm not going to give up. Latest post shared the breaking news about the new Turkey negotiations for next week, and now just waiting for another wave of abuse. I hate Southerners. Especially Metropolitan London and Surrey types. Right bunch of ctuns, frankly B
  17. Interesting and thanks. Was listening on radio so couldn't see body language. But as you say, faithfully trotting out the standard lines - and made himself sound a right smarmy ***** when he was arguing / talking over the guy who called in about Canada. Found a minor flaw in the guys premise (95% vs 100% tarrif free) and segment all his time being "clever" about that, rather than addressing the actual issue. Great to hear Facebook picked it up. B
  18. I think Farage has been on here, from his language. Did a nice job of nailing Cameron's political opportunism on LBC this morning, accusing him and the Bremain camp of "conflating" the shooting with both the referendum AND the Brexit campaign... No hysterics, just a calm assurance that "the voting public are intelligent enough to make up their own minds." Let's hope so! B
  19. Cameron getting absolutely slammed on LBC right now for tweeting a link to Jo Cox's work

  21. Thanks. It gave me zero pleasure to write it, after 20 years of helll at the hands of mentally ill relatives. But it needed to be said. Experiencing what I unfortunately have, I will be utterly unsurprised if it turns out the killer was allowed to drop through the cracks in the system. And I will be utterly disgusted if Cameron and Osborne - who are ultimately accountable for a big part of that systemic failure - abuse the death of this poor lady to serve their own political ends and save their own miserable skins. And lest I be mistaken for the ******* lovechild of RK and Yvette Cooper, I say that as a lifelong - but absolutely NEVER again - tory voter. (Remove the 2 from my handle and you will see I'm not new, and have been here since 2007. I lost my job, and my login details with my email access, hence I've had to sign up again ) B
  22. Regrettably, I have extensive experience of just how inept the NHS is in dealing with even quite extreme mental illness. Section them, pump them full of anti-depressants and anti-psychotics, and then pop them back on the streets where they stop taking their meds and go psycho again. Seen it time and time again over the last 20 years. It's highly likely he'll turn out to be a "victim" of failures in NHS mental health provision*/**. Just like millions of young people are now at risk of being victims of the spinning of his senseless act, to support TPTB's agenda in the referendum. Like I said upthread. What a mess... *Just to be clear, I am in no way being an apologist for his utterly disgusting act, which has deprived a young family of a wife and mother. **Unfortunately, in my personal experience, NHS mental health provision is crippled by being run off their feet, underfunded and overstretched - simply because they have too many people to treat with the funds available. On top of that, they are hamstrung by human rights legislation which (for example) means that 1) they have to allow patients under section 24hr access to a free phone - to harrass their friends and family unfettered - and 2) in many cases they are obliged to deal with interfering lawyers, determined to get them released far too early through tribunal, funded by legal aid and on the basis that ongoing non-voluntary sectioning is an infringement of their Yooman Rights. If ever there were two decent reasons for a Brexit, encapsulated within the one act that the Remain camp are trying so hard to hijack, you have them right there above. The irony, the irony....
