I would just like to take this opportunity to welcome Baghdad to this end of the village. Often maligned by the racing types as a cesspit of deviates - its great to have your contribution. Now I am not suggesting you will always be intellectually challenged down this end - first to admit we carry a fair few mental lightweights. However, you will always get a diverse discussion on pretty much any topic. Usually not as single focused as those up that way. Just a few tips ;
  *  enter at your own risk after midnight (we have gone on to lose a few during these hours)
  *  take a break over the xmas period (brings out the worst in the loners / grey blanket types)
  *  spend time getting to learn the different clans. Basically 2 - PTs & Dr E's. As a general rule the latter are considered a bit more astute (& practical).
  *  try to garnish ground level support before going out on a limb. Can be a long way down if pushed
  *  try treating the dopes with respect. Not much to be gained treating them like punching bags

& finally - always keep an eye out for the famous TBV "sucker punch". Usually just around the corner of every active thread.

Keep moving forward.
Dont look back, leave that to the bitter and twisted.
Usually those with the sucker punch are those who have been here the longest and are VERY territorial or possessive. And have a need to rally their troops to their cause.

Oneonesit, thanks for that inside running, I already gathered there were different clans. The other day when I commented on something PT had posted , within minutes a few came off the interchange bench to support PT and bag me.

And never try to argue politics with PT because it doesnt matter what you say, or what side you agree with, he will shoot you down, even if you agree with Himself Thumbs DownEvery so often someone pops in and agrees with him, but he is so busy shooting the rest down in flames he misses it and  puts them in the same boat as the masses.

One very astute man is Baghdad Bob imo, I dropped a horses name her quite a while back that raced over 50 years ago and he replied with a comment that was oh so true and classical, when it comes to racing he hides his light under a bushel that's for sure.

It would be a boring old forum if we just had Doc or oneone leading the circle activity with everyone chanting ''Go WINX'' and nobody injecting any challenging views.

 I drop in occasionally on the (forlorn) hope that civilisation has reached the site...

 that goes for both sides...the same old arguments are still being trotted out by the same old (brainwashed) participants.

 Please...just for fun...how about changing sides...

I think Bob has the gist of it, but this would be a fair disclaimer for anyone who ventured off the narrow path!

I would just make one correction/clarification, and that is that I am not of one "tribe" or another ... my comments are explicitly those of an impartial observer ... I am always open to correction in the extremely rare case where i may have misspoken, and I am mostly supportive of honest researched posts ... where as PT is a self confessed fibber, and his mini mes lap it up.Big smile
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!

I walk our dog twice daily, and always carry a paper bag to collect and dispose of his cr@p.

Might suggest Horlicks adopt a similar procedure after viewing many of the Doc's posts.  Big smile

I have just got back from the confessional box at Mass, although that I am not Catholic, nor have been baptized any religion.

That should get you going PT, what do you think ?
