The Monster Raving Loony Party is still embracing the Wensleydale Cheese policy I proposed to them way back in 2001. It was on their tweet today!

Generally speaking I mean people with less than fifty posts.
Ahhh my bad I did wonder :lol:

EDIT: Your an oxford fan aren't you? Whats this Damian Martinez guy like? (Young keeper from Arsenal who you had on loan from end of last season) He's just signed on loan for us which is really bizarre considering Kirland is in top form...

Honestly, I hadn't even heard of the guy until you mentioned just now, he never challenged our first team keeper so that's as little as I can reflect to you

Just broke up with my girlfriend, tough, but right choice.

Fair enough, I doubt he'll be playing here then unless Kirkland gets crocked which quite frankly he has a history of.

Ah nay mind, plenty more fish in the sea eh? Well providing we fish them sustainably that is...
Been having similar thoughts in recent weeks tbh, stuck in a hard place but meh

Kirkland is quality.

Its not even about other girls, I just feel like I'm in a prison cage in a relationship, they're just not right for me right now I guess.

He is indeed, shame his body never managed to keep up with him though. It makes you wonder what exactly Wigan were doing to him for him to get injured all the time, he hasn't had an injury whilst he's been here.

Thats what I feel like although no doubt for different reasons. Five years in with her and i'm wobbling, best make up my chuffing mind soon. Doesn't help outspoken relatives have hinted at getting engaged, god damn it i'm still young!

Its weird when that happens, a bit like an injury ridden RVP at Arsenal but barely injured at all at Man U!

Phew that's a long old time, I understand where you're coming from, I like the freedom to do whatever I want; but making up your mind is the hardest part, no doubt harder for you if you had to deal with the fallout of a five year relationship!

So what does everyone think about the neg rep option being taken away? Bit ridiculous if you ask me, what's the point in only having positive if you don't have negative as a counter balance, to show if a post is complete rubbish.

Aye, only pos rep from now on, it's on a 3 month trial basis.

Eh? Which lummock proposed this? Lets all pretend to be friends whilst I can't neg you... talk about bleeding utopianism. People need to learn to deal with crap in life and if they can't deal with a mere neg from somebody who disagrees then balls to them.

Not greatly happy but what can a mere user do. That said I bet this is just a crappy way to increase site activity or something.

Ridiculous plan to make more users happy, hence attracting more of them to look and click on adverts. :rolleyes: I guess we will need to find another way to perform our mostly anonymous vendettas, but it will be much harder to see which posts are worthwhile.

I don't really care enough about the reputation system to have a strong opinion, but I never have been a fan of the arbitrary way people neg posts. Can't say I'll miss it... or even particularly notice.

I actually suggested this just a couple of weeks ago in the rep feedback thread and it got repped by a supermod, so I'm going to pretend that I gave them the idea and take all of the credit

Although I did only suggest it for the debating parts of the site. I don't think neg rep works in places like D&CA, it's too easy to just click the neg button and give no counter-argument, doesn't make sense in a forum dedicated to debating, in fact it actually detracts from the experience. Now if you disagree with someone you actually have to say it, or in other words, people have to actually debate their debates these days. That's how it should be.

I miss the negging option. Although I never negged in the model Commons. Indeed I have repped posters because they have negged by others

I have to admit I have negged you quite a few times, but the last time it was pos.

I think that it's a positive step forward, but of course it doesn't stop members negging members in other parts of the site in return for what they say here, but this is a good step and one which I warmly welcome.

So have you seen the latest American propaganda yet? It is called White House Down and suspiciously resembles Olympus Has Fallen. Not that I care about cinematography of this genre much…
