    Name Shame?

    This wouldn't be about an 'i' that isn't before an 'e' by any chance, would it? Oh yes. I'm losing layer after layer of tooth enamel with the involuntary grinding that happens every time I see it.

    Name Shame?

    Is it possible to request a change in someone else's user name?
  3. Are you saying that your avatar is not a true likeness? And we know from a thread some time ago that yours is a true likeness of your little man!
  4. Read all about our roads. And no, don't ask how I found this...

    Ariel Sharon

    I think it's aliens. I noticed the same thing last week on a new thread that I had viewed a couple of times, and new posts had appeared in.

    When Deathlisters Go Shopping

    Boudicca, I'm intrigued by what quirks of fate brought you and your sister to such different places on the social ladder. You come across as erudite and well-read (dare I say it, even intelligent!), and your chav-tastic sister well, rather less so. What could have happened in your past to lead you down such different paths? Was she corrupted by her other half, or were you rescued from impending chav-dom by Mr B? Is she rebelling against a middle class upbringing? Too much cake as a child? Too early an exposure to Burberry check? So many possibilities...

    Gene Pitney

    4 days to make Gene Pitney's coffin from oak, but only 24 hours from balsa.

    The Chequered Flag

    Um, he did die though, didn't he. I would say they've still a way to go then.

    The Deathlist Kitchen

    Sounds like a stir-fry to me. Some chicken or pork would help, obviously. Do you have soy sauce, garlic, ginger, spices etc at home?

    Near misses 2006

    Or, more simply, and less subjectively, restrict iain to only posting in the 'not exactly famous' thread. That would cut the mods' workload from your proposal in half. I like your idea though, despite how difficult it might be to classify them. For instance one of our esteemed mods has an interest in chess, so he may say that all dead chess players posted would count as famous. Similarly, if one of them had an interest in WWII flyers, and their circle of contacts (outside DL) consisted almost exclusively of like-minded people, then this person would appear to be famous to them.

    Near misses 2006

    Tempus, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't necessarily make it drink the water, if you get my meaning regards a certain member. But you can always shoot the horse! ... and Iain would probably post its death in this thread! (Yes, I understand Iain IS the horse, so that would not be possible, but you never know with Iain....) That would be perfectly reasonable. The posts iain produces usually relate to non-famous people, or non-dead people, or sometimes both. So a non-dead non-famous horse would fit his criteria perfectly.

    Harry Morgan

    Morning Bruno! Do you consume alcohol with breakfast? If so I'm very impressed. Not so much with breakfast as for breakfast, methinks.

    The Unwritten Rules...argue About Them Here

    Windsor are you trying to be sarcastic or are you just speaking in general? Speaking in general, Banshees. Bou: Rocket Surgery? I think that's similar to Brain Science.

    World's Oldest

    Just out of interest, why wouldn't you count Shigechiyo Izumi?

    Not Exactly Famous...

    I'm sure they'll make a lovely couple.

    Near misses 2006

    If you have to say 'well known' they probably aren't. 'German TV personality' would suffice. Or are you saying that Jenny Tamburi wasn't well known? If so, it's not exactly a near miss for DeathList, is it?

    John Cleese

    You'd need to be very careful scraping that nose.

    Bird Flu

    I'm now waiting for the headlines "Bird flu now in dog" "Goat goes down with A (H5N1) Virus" "Fresian Cattle now infected" "Killer 'Flu shocks equine world" "Old Woman Dead (of course)" Now you mention it, I don't remember the "H5N1 attacks insect world" or "Spider dies of New strain of Avian Flu" headlines. Maybe they were hushed up by the Chinese government.
  19. Do you think she has? As Alannis Morrisette would say, 'Isn't it ironic?'
  20. It's Limbo for me! Charon ushers you across the river Acheron, and you find yourself upon the brink of grief's abysmal valley. You are in Limbo, a place of sorrow without torment. You encounter a seven-walled castle, and within those walls you find rolling fresh meadows illuminated by the light of reason, whereabout many shades dwell. These are the virtuous pagans, the great philosophers and authors, unbaptised children, and others unfit to enter the kingdom of heaven. You share company with Caesar, Homer, Virgil, Socrates, and Aristotle. There is no punishment here, and the atmosphere is peaceful, yet sad. Woo-hoo!

    true dat - I hear he's going to have an Opera-tion very soon. Betty doesn't.

    Ali Farka Toure

    Do you mean you dance spectacularly and vigorously in your beige cardigan at JJ's school discos? Rather like the dancing that your 'little man' does incessantly. 'Mm, it's got a good beat', as Hugh Dennis used to say.
  23. Voted yes as well. I was veering towards no, but the silver-tongued arguments of Star Crossed and in eternum+ persuaded me to see the benefits of guest posts. Guests who post lots of times without registering wind me up, Himler recently being a good example of this. The DLRI is a good reason to allow them, also the sheer lunacy and narrow-mindedness of some of them (especially those in the Pete Twunterty thread) makes me chuckle. Perhaps guest posts could be banned from those threads which have been taken over by these posts. Maybe if those who have registered start ranting, then the mods could have a polite word. or perhaps?

    ***deathlist Planned Maintenance***

    Hmmm. Since the 'upgrade' I now have to log in almost every time I visit. Having not logged in (as I was always remembered) for many months, I don't like it. Three times today so far. And no, I haven't changed any of my settings. Is this just temporary too? (Please!)
