  1. I had a different user name when I used to post here regularly. It was back in 2010, I think. I was much younger then and easily hurt; the same can't be said now. Usually most people who troll and tear strips off others online, are great insecure, inadequate cowards in real life and wouldn't dare say boo to a goose. Everyone is a mouth when hiding behind their online alter egos. Just look at what became of that ''Snoopyface'' woman who trolled the McCanns online.

  2. I used to visit the forums regularly some years back and posted a fair bit in the beginning. Now I just drop by from time to time without signing in, just to see what's been going on deathwise. The main reason why I stopped posting and paying a regular visit to the site was mainly down to the way people treated each other. Not all people; just a handful, but that handful more or less dominated the forums with their verbal toing and froing, which often descended into outright hostility. It's a case too of certain other members - for want of a better word - ''trolling'' the posts of some. There's a fine line between harmless banter and abuse, IMO, and, yeah, I believe there needs to be more strident moderation. It's one thing if two people get into a disagreement over a particular topic, and a debate in that case is perfectly reasonable, but when someone singles out another poster for mockery and insults for the simple reason that they believe that the posts of the aforementioned are ''boring'' then that, in my opinion, is not acceptable. Just my tuppence worth,...

  3. I haven't watched the Eurovision since I was a teenager. (Bloc voting killed off any interest I had in it) To me, it's more of a cringe fest than anything else, as far as I know, Abba and Celine Dion were the only acts who won that went on to have decent international careers in the music business. I have noticed that a lot of people on the Continent tend to take it somewhat seriously. A German friend of mine who holds a Eurovision party each year - a bigger affair than his New Year's do, or so he says - got quite annoyed with me when I dared to take the piss out of it.

  4. I also enjoy the stories about the Count of Saint-Germain:



    Saint - Germain is definitely an interesting one. Didn't some French singer in the seventies claim to be him?


    Yes, some nutter named Richard Chanfray who later committed suicide: http://en.wikipedia....ichard_Chanfray


    There is another good overview about the Count here: http://paranormal.ab...t-germain_2.htm


    It's an entertaining read. Apparently, there are quite a few immortal celebs out there http://celebrities.ninemsn.com.au/slideshowajax/193066/immortal-celebrities.slideshow :lol:

  5. Wow, he outlived Irish sovereignty. That's something few of us would have seen coming at the start of the year.

    I never actually believed in Irish sovereignty in the first place - the State was the Vatican's puppet since it's foundation.

  6. Margaret Thatcher's death and funeral has nothing to do with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.


    Would be a happy coincidence though :)

    Having the two celebrations in one day, would certainly save a bit of money. :lol:
