Nice one. What's the blue one in the middle? (Can't read it) One World - John Martyn. I owned it on vinyl way back in the day but it wore out. Nice to have it back on vinyl again. A fave not only of mine but also of DTB. Top row third from the left, btw, is Creedence Clearwater Revival Gold, not th...

Wandered around Greenwich market today, noted abnormally high number of people and dozens of pink clad folk hanging around and smiling a lot, Paralympic time, it's busy round 'ere. Rummaged amongst vinyl vendors wares and came away with this lot for a total of £21.00. And all are fine, though Nancy...

Ok, what Greg said has made me a little bit paranoid so I have decided to delete my little tale of nastiness, experience and violence. The thought that the little shit might have the last laugh disheartens me greatly and I'm not above suspecting a person or persons unknown may direct possibly intere...

I thought this incomplete thread was due to be zapped into the ether? Bye bye thread, bye bye happiness, bye bye thread I a think I'm a gonna die Sorry, spontaneous burst of Phil & Don there with Mafia overtones. Greg: It was meant to be a joke but it did actually happen, part way through writing my...

The version of events ticked a few boxes eh Paul? maybe you're both right and I'm a nutter. The version of events could happen to anybody, some or most of who will react in different ways. That's how I reacted and as I pointed out a few times, I was surprised at the way I did react. I do consider my...

You're possibly right Dear Gregory, but do you think I really care? The situation you outline, I'd imagine you'd be just the man to instigate such a proceeding wouldn't you? I posted a factual account of an event in my life to try and disprove your labelling of me as a police hater. I also thought i...

My burglar story

After careful consideration I have decided to remove this, partly on Greg's advice, as facts contained therein may have made me liable to some nastiness.

So it gone. Vamoosed. Disappeared.

And if you're a solicitor or barrister I made it all up anyway, it's a complete fib :D

Obviously? Obviously? That is so typically old Bill, I make a few critical comments regarding the police force and suddenly I’m a police hater. You’ve weighed me up and condemned me on a few throwaway comments I’d made. Takes me back to that questioning in the interview room where two of your ...

Ok, final word, I resent being labelled a cyber-bully, I'm not, read the text of my posts, I think that bears my claim out. In school, if a child is wrongly labelled a bully, the accusation often sticks, even without proof and that, I believe, is what's happened to me here for merely responding to a...

I started a flame war? I am a cyber-bully? I can see what's happening here, the clique are lining me up to be a scapegoat as I rubbed some folk up the wrong way for daring to have a different point of view. So be it, I hope you all feel better after this thread and myself have gone. I would like to ...

I'll comment before departing permanently. Why does this forum allow people to delete all comment? It allows users to make a nonsense of threads, as seen here. I wonder why Steve deleted all his posts? Does he expect a thread with such a provocative title to escape comment/criticism? Most forums put...

And still the personal attacks keep coming, what is it with some of you people. I had hoped I'd made it clear my posts were not a personal attack, I'm just expressing my views in response to your views in, I hope, a well mannered fashion. The teaching profession. I have some understanding here, hav...

I have read all your posts and hopefully digested all that you're saying and as such I would say my last post makes sense, please don't accuse me of spouting gibberish when I'm not. When I see a whole bunch of comments so biased on a subject such as this, so one sided, I find it hard not to comment....

What more do you want me to say? Dunno. I will say that in your opening and subsequent posts there's more bias than in a Daily Mail lead story ;) I have never seen such devotion to a company, it's almost fanatical. Nowt wrong with support I suppose, cheering your team on and all, but Apple are just...

Blimey. When you join Apple as an employee, retail shop assistant or otherwise, do they give you a brain implant or something? I’ve enjoyed certain jobs I’ve had in my time but I don’t think any of them has ever made me gush so favourably about my employer. I don’t think the question is whet...
