Not true. I seem to have joined.

Of course, now I'm not a guest, the curse of my posts wont effect people. So I can mention John Demjanjuk here without him dying in the next 24 hours.

In that case, a few well-chosen words to point that out may well have prevented anyone getting shirty.

However, there's no need to get shirty over people getting shirty.

While I'm here, can I just point out that we're quite well populated for a forum that nobody ever joins.

Merry Christmas ;)

I like Paul Smith's shirtiness, but if he dies today, have I posted this in the wrong place.

It seems ridiculous to me that a forum headed 'Dead of 2010' does not in fact mean the Dead of 2010 but really seems to mean 'The Dead of 2010 who are not on other threads'

I've only just seen this. That is a shock - my son (aged 5 1/2) has been perfecting the Boney M "Mary's Boy Child" dance this Christmas (and performing it for everyone's amusement at any given opportunity)...he'll be sad when I tell him in the morning...
