  1. Time was people were banned for trying to encourage others to join a rival forum, now posters seem to be viewed as an unwanted irritation. How things change. I have no intention of abandoning OT any time soon, but if I do it will be for PistonHeads as, like HPC, I have an interest in the core subject matter from which one can then go Off Topic.
  2. Apologies to EssKay if I am incorrectly pointing the finger at them but they posted in the London terrorist with the usual combined criticism / control of the forum post as is traditionally the province of Mortgage Bitch and Spinwheel. I suggested that anybody on the forum purely for such negative purposes should be banned though I didn't report the post. I may have inadvertently given them ideas so they reported the while thread and mods deleted it based on the whinge of somebody who would rather the forum didn't exist, but still posts on it for reasons best known to themselves.
  3. Well it annoys me when they're on continuous; and next time you're walking.
  4. Is it purely the time setting of the forum or do you never get the option? I haven't timed it here but you seem to get half a day or a day before your post locks; so my posts from yesterday have locked but one from this morning has edit still available. On another forum with the same software it's been set to something like ten minutes which is too short.
  5. It's a yes / no referendum, it was presented as such. You lost. Even a one vote difference and you still would have lost.
  6. As several of us said at the time: that was the last winnable vote. If freedom of movement stays then Britain dies as a credible nation state so there then becomes no reason to leave the EU.
  7. Quoting myself but I stand by this. I would be prepared to go to prison.
  8. It always used to be far better to just google what you wanted and include housepricecrash in the search terms; that way you coudl also do date ranges to narrow it down.
  9. He has done exactly what was asked of him; kept interest rates ludicrously low, got QE going again, and lent spurious weight to Osborne's pronouncements of economic Armageddon should we dare to vote Brexit. He has done all of that whilst cooking up regular faux economic reasons for doing that whilst repeatedly changing his stance and appearing to be in favour of raising interest rates at some point in the distant future just often enough to stop people realising that this is the last thing he wants to do. He is a good and faithful servant of the Brown, Greenspan, and Osborne school of asset bubbles and as they have been found out and dismissed so should he be.
  10. Yes, I have never joined a protest in my life but failure to leave would see me on the streets and there would be the first ever series of middle class riots. And when the government loses the middle class it falls.
  11. Yes, like the mumsnet list. Most if them are in this thread but it's been running for five years so is a bit disjointed: http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/162010-can-we-have-a-sticky-please/page-1
  12. Or your smoke alarm deciding to start with the low battery beep at 5am.
  13. You need to be on the full version rather than the mobile version; the option is at the foot of the page. Or just remember the ones you use, so with and without spaces: : ) ; )
  14. Tescos remove Scottish saltire from raspberries grown in Scotland after complaints that English ones don't have the flag of St George on. Now just labelled British and with a Union Jack. Seriously? A few nuts complain on twitter and they change the labeling. Try developing a backbone Tesco. I like to know where things are grown and a pretty flag (I like the Scottish flag) gives you that information at a glance. I am English which is part of Britain which is part of the UK. Any of the UK's nations flags are absolutely A-OK with me. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-37164237
  15. Often sold very cheaply second hand as proper office chairs are too big for anything but using as a home office chair. Mine cost £10 and is way better than my previous brand new flash looking but not very big or solid one that fell apart. Check your small ads, freecycle etc.
