Probably???

In a way, it's worse than having a crush on a popstar or something, because there's only one of them and they're very public figures. Being that obsessed with a whole schoolful of these boys, who you have never even met, is just weird.

I'm glad that news of me has travelled so far *sparkle* I'm sad to disappoint you but the comments are true. They are not sacarstic. And... also only three of them were written by Etonians. So that would make your point invalid. The others were written by real life friends whom I know. And they would make sacarstic remarks about me? I think not. Your point doesnt stand.
Yes, you have talked to only 3 real Etonians, but the point is you are infamous for being a stalker, hence the reason why you are well known in certain houses.

Erm, yes a lot are sarcastic, it was proved before that you do not understand sarcasm the way we Brits do. Some might be from your real friends, but surely even them can see that you have an unhealthy obsesson with the school.

I urge for you again, just to leave the matter, go and bother some current E blockers instead of us.

I've spoken to more than 3 Etonians, darling. I know all about sacarsm, JJ. The remarks there are good natured ones. You are just too paranoid. I believe you live life thinking that people are gossiping behind your back and being sacarstic. That's sad.

You started the debate. You started this bloody thing again. Stop pushing the blame on me. Blame yourself, you brought this rant (which you are sick of hearing) onto yourself.

Stop winching, it has close links with Eton yes, but there won't just be Etonians there.

Your school has got in the news anyway:

By Lech Mintowt-czyz, Evening Standard - 13 May 2004

With the advent of the Friends Reunited website, school gossip reached new heights. For pupils unwilling to wait until they actually leave their alma mater, however, the latest internet trend is for sites which deal with current classroom gossip.

But one school's tittle-tattle web space has overstepped the mark. Pupils from the £20,000-a-year Westminster School have found access to their site banned by teachers after it became a repository of sexual scandal and innuendo.

Highlights of the site include a diagram linking pupils known to have had close encounters with each other and a section where pupils can rate their classmates' prowess. The site, www.westminstertree.tk, has recorded some 17,000 visits. It includes more than 600 photos of pupils in various states of apparent drunkenness and dress and promises "127,117 possible pairings" between pupils to make sure "prep boredom will become a thing of the past".

When the school - whose ex-pupils include Dido, Helena Bonham Carter and, appropriately enough, the internet entrepreneur Martha Lane Fox - found out about the site it felt it had to act. Staff were horrified to discover that not only was the site filled with pornographically detailed gossip, but pupils were also accessing it from the school library. The site was promptly blocked from being viewed on the boarding and day school's own computers but pupils have taken to accessing it from home.

Among the rated sexual encounters are edited comments such as "I could not resist... huge... all night long... you have to try him" and "after a long period of frustration between the two they decided to hop on the good foot and do the bad thing".

The school, which can trace its origins to the 12th century and also boasts Tony Benn, Sir John Gielgud and Sir Peter Ustinov among its roster of distinguished former pupils, is one of the best known and most prestigious independent schools in the country.

Headteacher Tristram Jones-Parry said the school had also investigated the possibility of closing the site. "I find it all rather silly and childish really," he said. "What used to be done through whispers and little bits of paper passed around at the back of class is now thrown all over the internet. "We believe we know the boy involved and I understand we have contacted him to ask him to tone the content down a bit. "It is the sort of stuff you expect from a 13- or 14-year-old but this boy is 20 and is still concerning himself for some reason with his old school. It is rather sad, all in all. "We have a filter that automatically blocks access to the site from school computers but that is all we can do. "It is a long way from the worst thing you can find on the web but the internet does rather give a new dimension to the usual teenage desire to engage in fantasy."


I cannot believe you didn't have any luck with the girls there, there is some nice totty from Westminster as depicted on said site.

This isn't going to probably make much difference to well, any of this.

Meerkat: I do think you are probably a nice girl, I can see that from some of the things you say. But you are so utterly snobby, that it is disgusting...

For instance your poem "I'm the Middle of the Tier", is not only inaccurate but if that was a poem about say, race you'd be in for it. Since when are grammar schools for the middle class? And since when are rowdy comps just for the working class and public schools just for the rich? Wtf.

This bad attitude, isn't attractive and doesn't make you an English snob, 'cause I think you'll find that not everyone are so class orientated or so snobby whatever their background. So, grow up forget the Eton ****, you are not English and stop s******* off about your middle class (if you are even 'middle' anyway) as if it's better than all the supposed classes, yeah?

Oh and if you love Eton so much, tell me why would any Eton chap really see you as more special than everyone else?

Apparently there used to be lots of closed scholarships etc going on - still a lot of musical links (one of their organ scholars is an OE, I think) so yes, there are a few there, but King's is most definitely not full of Etonians - it's renowned for being the most left-wing and radical of the colleges and has state intake of around 80%

Well said, HS!

Thank you.

It does make me angry reading that website, it's as if she's superior to everyone.
