Make no apologies for returning to this thread as, after something jogged the memory on a.n.other forum, decided to revisit. Speed read it in a couple of sittings,and looked at the ridiculous thread set up when someone closed this.

 

I have only one thing to say (well a lot, actually, but I'll stick to one thing): the Potato man, Harvester of Souls and Windsor - if they are all still here, I do hope they've got a sense of proportion at last, come out of their intellectual ivory towers, and have realised that this is an internet forum, and as such is inherently pointless and stupid. As, sadly, were they. As are we all. There were some ridiculously self-important proclamations of the supposed intellectual ambitions they held for this forum (and, by extension, themselves) in there.

 

I think the likes of MPFC, Pooka and Godot knew this, and I exclude them from my pity.

 

As for the rest of the forum? Otherwise, still rather good on the whole.Nice to see it still here.

Aye, cheers for the vote of confidence, or summat. Back in the day the copious posting on this thread was regarded as extreme by some, whilst others saw the thread as akin to our common room. Looking at the tonnage of posts on a few other threads these days, this one doesn't seem so outlandish now.

Just a thought: if someone started a thread about an individual and 12 years later you're still talking about his impending doom, it was a stupid fucking thread to begin with started by a damned fool who jumped the gun. Reminds me of the totally needless Angelina Jolie thread.
You should be chastising the person daily, not having actual discussion giving credence to the fool who posted the thread. Damn glorymongers, just want to start threads for no reason.

You obviously haven't read through this thread....... or seen the "recent" pics of the guy? (2009)

 

Note how he's got a walking stick that looks like it's probably called a "HobblePro" or something. and a look on his face like an angry obese rat who keeps having his food stockpiles raided by squirrels. It was clearly some sort of nuclear megastroke and he's "lucky" to still be here (or... maybe unlucky).

 

Your latest thread-police raid is about as misplaced as one of Mr. Roper's attempts to curb the wild hedonistic lifestyles of his tenants!

Dickie's former Robin's Nest squeeze Tessa Wyatt and old mucker George Layton both appear in tomorrow's Doctors episode, obviously in a BOGOF deal. It would be great, if unlikely, to see Richard sneaked out of Brinsworth for a daytrip to Letherbridge one of these days.

So anyway. there's relative newcomers hereabouts wondering if the tonnage of posts on the Zsa Zsa and/or Castro thread(s) are remarkable, I thought I'd let post 2033 on this thread speak for itself.

True story.

 

When I first saw this thread (nearly a decade ago) I had never heard of the actor in question, so my first thoughts were: "Blimey, the horse racing guy is very popular here".

Oh aye, and - for the benefit of you newbies - one problem with the Dickie O thread here was the amount of time people kept dragging it back to the top and posting marginally relevant and inconsequential rambles, you know, like the one in this post.

So you'd say you're a rambling man, MPFC?

 

Think on the bright side. When O'Sullivan actually dies, someone somewhere is going to read through this entire thread from the start.

I've got a lot to thank (or maybe curse) Richard O'Sullivan for...

 

If it wasn't for chance watching of the "Man About the House" film in 2005, I would not have been curious as to his current whereabouts. It was a look through Google (or was it Yahoo?) which took me to this thread on this website, without which I wouldn't have discovered the Derby Dead Pool, which I took part in in and eventually run as host.

 

So thanks Dickie for making every Christmas since 2009 that bit busier! :)
