I subscribe to fora ranging from fossilised dung collecting to trading pre-war beer mats, this is definitely the best forum.

And when David Ballamies great great great grandson comes trawling the archives with his chipping hammer .. he'll knock a bit off and turn to camera and say 'many years ago this was what stonage forum posters looked like and they posted as much shit then as they do today ... fascinating!'

should I leave this post open ended ?


sorry harryboy22002 just poking fun at some regulars .. you are right in your observations though harrah to ribnet
