    Or that you have the simple ability to place somewhat humorous comment at the start of a thread in Chat...
    Based on loads of threads in Chat I've seen...

    I wouldn't call humour a simple ability...

    :rofl:

    I was...
    Spoiler:

    leala4628. I wasn't very TSR famous, though (I was Cambridge offer-holder's-thread famous - I remember a guy recognising me during my first week there based on the info I had shared in that thread and that scared me). That username no longer exists because I changed it, but apparently I joined on the 6th May 2008. I only managed 7294 posts.
    I don't remember you.

    Which year did you apply?

    I was 2010 I think and in my year had the most posts in the application threads.

    Are you for or against them?

    Please be against :facepalm2:
    It wasn't about being for or against. The argument centred around the person in question's generalisation that ALL grammar school kids and private school kids are equally privileged. This is not the case.

    If you want me to paste what I literally wrote to Hydeman in a PM on this topic then I shall if you give me the green light.

    Nearly went to write- 'Thanks, Ethereal (although my real name)- because I've been writing too many e-mails at work. I actually put Thanks, >real name< to someone on a birthday card message earlier today as well. :facepalm2:

    I have witnessed that, but I'm not sure that that conclusion follows from the premises. :holmes:

    Anyway, why is he my 'bum chum?'
    I'm just messing around. He loves you.

    I applied for 2009 entry. I was always near the top, but we migrated onto Skype chats too in the end. I used to get voicemails overnight from when group calls had been happening while I was asleep. They were simple days.

    I can't give you the green light to paste from somebody else's PM messages with you.

    It's fine though, I agree with you. Private and grammar schools are abhorrent though (and I went to a good grammar school so not even jelly).

    My name was paddy__power back then in case it rings any bells.

    Edit: it occurs to me that I would have been applying in 2009....

    I was privately educated and you see how I am :rofl: and then I went to a public secondary school, after trying to apply to a grammar school due to my mother's persistence. She picked subjects I didn't like so I bombed it.

    I do remember that name! I had no idea that was you, though. You were the year after me. I remember you being pretty active on the forums but I probably remember the name mostly from creeping on that applicants thread. I wanted to know who was coming after us.

    No. it is my PM (therefore my IP) and doesn't implicate the other user at all. You cool with it Hydeman?

    I was very active on TSR back then, much more so than the last few years anyway.

    Most people didn't know I changed my name outside of the MHoC but every now and again I get a message or quote asking me if I was once paddy__power
