Anyhoo, Brookfield's typing is far from quick. The amount of times his profile shows him "Creating new thread...." "Replying to thread..." and sits there for about 15 minutes before his reply appears on the forum itself.

The commas thing is hellishly annoying. He must have got 0% at school for his English exam.
I find myself in a curious position, I am agreeing with your comments about my typing, it is lousy, I know that, as to my English exam results being 0%, I wouldn't know, at elementary schools then, there were exams as such, but they didn't count for much, & if my parents were disappointed in some, not all, my reports, they didn't show it, they loved me, & if I was happy, they were happy, there wasn't all the pressure the kids have thrust upon them these days to do well, but thanks anyway, in general, a welcome post

i voted yes , i think it is important that society is educated about these real issues ,the no just no thread was made to show where all theese celebrities get their fiur from . As long as the threads stay for an educational purpose then as long as there is a warning above the link or in the thread title i think it is ok to post ,



I agree with alvino that warnings will make people curious but if you saw a warning saying high voltage and you then touched the cable etc it is your own fault , same here if you see the warning saying this link goes to some scenes of animal cruelty then if you clcik and get sickened you cannot then blame the person that posted the link as you where warned

Yep, about three weeks ago, I was told by someone, I can't remember who, that it could give new members a wrong impression as it looked grim, I told them that you didn't smile when it was a photo for a driving licence, but as I said, I was tired of seeing it there myself, I don't look like that normally, I assure you!
