Phil, if you want me to lock this topic down let me know. I don't think it's adding much positive to this website.

What is this dribble? Don't be so gutless as to have a go at someone from an anonymous account.

Seemed perfectly clear to me, Kieran. Have a crack. You know, like making a good fist of something.

kieranl, I'm glad I'm not the only person enjoying the rich array of double entendres on offer in this thread!

My favourite so far..

Let's not start the retro-bolting debate here. It would be the mother of all internet forum storms.

Hmm.
I read the moderated post, and have the following 2c opinion.

Re nmonteith portion of post quoted above;

+1 for me, and similar re the gordoste post, summing up this thread.



Maybe this thread should be renamed to ... ‘This be the thread where Mods let us all rip into each other’?, ie the one 'politics thread' where fair game abounds?
(I am over elections/politics, so would hide this topic!)

Others it seems went climbing yesterday and the election result was their theme topic.
I too went climbing, and none of us mentioned it at all !!

Crimson Spankneck is a Nowra climb name, if ever I heard one!

Where was it going beforehand?

That's OK. It's a politics thread, and by being on it I am fair game. Feel free to use better 'fighting words' if you like, as the precedent has been set!

Where did you want him to take you? For a ride on his big powerful motorbike wearing his leather jacket to the Nati public dunnies?

Well even that would be more appealing than the usual M9 posts that say nothing and go nowhere.

Oy, I am extremely offended simey, as you have used two 'n' words and according to some earlier posts, these aren't allowed...

I found Phil's and Duncan's posts equally offensive. In my opinion both posts should have been totally deleted (not just a couple of words removed). That sort of name-calling shouldn't be tolerated here. Either of their views should be tolerated as long as they are offered in a respectful manner. That's free speech.
