There are times when this section reminds me a lot of Singletrack.

Tongue in cheek ribbing is fine between members who understand one anothers sense of humour, but there are at least two members who I now actively avoid, wherever they post.

I do feel a bit like I'm being 'put down' consistently by certain individuals and see the same happening to other newbies. Bit of a shame when we take the time to participate and often enthuse.

How long does it take to write 16 nice remarks a day?

As I said, OCD with repressed ADD is a wonderful thing.

You're right, it's very distasteful. Fortunately The History Man is a premier league Thatcherite so there'll be no such unpleasantness here.

Eh? Labour all my life. Or was that gentle irony? How's the ribs? Sure it wasn't your humour not the fall that did for them?

I can take a ribbing but it seems to be escalating a lot of late.

Did you see what I did there?

It's was irony, but hot weather is making it too much effort to think up first class material.

Ribs not good. Survived 4 days at work before the pain drive men to the work doctor, who advised I'm dangerously unfit for work, and a phone call to my GP got me signs off for another month. Might be looking at surgery and more metalwork if there no improvement.

On the plus side folk on here have been really supportive, and those pm' s of concern and encouragement you sent were really uplifting. Thanks buddy :D
