    I'm a bit confused Poppy, what prompted the last line in your post here?

    ugh...sometimes i have regrets.
    id say this post was a reaction to other threads ( probably the Beirut thread) where member was always upvoting (percieved) negative comments towards myself ( and others he disagrees with ) in many other threads.
    i could not see full conversation due to being blocked (?)
    it seemed (to me) member has often advocated blocking others who
    may not hold the same viewpoint.

    members first interaction with me was offensive on his part.

    i've taken some time to reflect.
    i am passionate, but make weak arguments.
    pardon me.

    I found this last night...Its an insight into Australia in the 70s and insight into VFL (Victorian Football League) as it was called back then. I remember jumping the fence at KGV (King George the fifth) oval in Hobart...i'm sure my brother and I would talk like this...but with a few more Fs and Cs put in...I was young, but boy could I swear!
