I go away on holiday for a few days and look what you lot have done! :lol:

All those months following it and I've missed all the fun. I must admit it was the only "B" forum thread I followed and did learn a bit from it, like where the word burger came from!

Oh well, what should we argue about next children? :lol:

I admit I dipped in and out... and didn't commit to it like others.. But, despite the obvious emotive attachements that many [edit] have [/edit], it was an extremely well behaved thread.. Many other threads of less contraversial subjects have got way out of hand.

@G-BLEW , I didn't see any posts today, and I trust your judgement. However, I tip my hat to all involved for, by and large, being civil and at least showing restraint.

What you do now Steve is choose whichever of the biased media that fits your particular views and listen/read/view them nodding warmly to yourself about how right they are, while other watch their chosen media and believe everything they are saying that suits their views.

Maybe that’s the answer to the woes of the internet.

Have a non-political common interest, so a lot of different people join for that ( not necessarily representative). Throw in a degree of intelligence, communication skills and an understanding of the difference between debate and argument.

Voila! Flyer non-av.

I am still glad of the range of stuff people here know about.

Perhaps I'm missing some context - but must admit I see comments like that as just a bit of harmless banter.

I agree. I’ve used the comments and references in other places.

Balanced of course...
