Hard to believe that such a thing could be possible really.

My own beloved attended what was doubtless a similar seminary and I never did understand the shiny shoe rule in an all-female establishment. OTOH, I could see where the hairbrush regulations were coming from.

Indeed you shall, Cinders.
The Guinness are lovely, the women is cheap and the mackerel throw themselves on board holding a frying pan.
Hopefully we'll get out a bit more this time. If it blows a hooley again for five days like last time and we're holed up on the mooring we'll be sick of the sight of Fanny...

Come to join you in exile for a few days Jimi....

Frankly, had enough of it.....

Today it stooped as low as some pretty extreme racism...

pretty saddened by it all really.

The link to a nazi website and the lack of moderator response is hardly encouraging.

Its a bit like a small exiled community watching, from a distance, the home country going to the dogs.

I've given up on TOP as well

Today was a disgrace - I can't understand how the parent company can let their media be used to publish such trash.

Actually, I asked Dan to pull my post, but he said he was reluctant to as he thought it was developing into a lively debate. :(
Have to say that when I posted in the first place, that I did it without thinking further than the gov't dig, didn't think of it as a racist post.
In the end I think I ended up digging a hole.
There are however, some forumites who just appear to jump on anything they can, on both sides of the fence, to promote whatever point they are trying to force on whoever, and then the insults start flying, mainly from the righteous, it has to be said.
Hopefully, won't make that mistake again. :oops:

Sadder and wiser is probably the best most of us can hope for.
