Presumably there was misbehavior and nastiness? A pity, that; certainly was a good thread, last I'd looked.

Yes..........I was enjoying that thread too...even added a few memories of my 2 trips to The Philippines in 1988 and 1991.

I think it was that picture of the Starbucks ripoff. Looks like Andrew's missing some posts.

Heysuus Christo! Not a nice reaction. What motivates these Bilge denizens of limited intellectual attainment?

Frankly I'd be concerned at what this presages.

I did mention to him that it could be a problem.

Okay, this would be a good question to not know the answer.

Right?

FWIW.... this Forum is downright tolerant, compared to a few others I've visited. Room for 'growth'? Sure. But all in all, better than most.

That said, too bad one of the prescient ones didn't copy ACB's thread (sans the offending picture) for future reference!

No, it wasn't that. Someone made a remark about my "home movies" and I thought - well, fair enough, I shouln't be boring everyone with that sort of stuff. So I deleted it.

Ever hear of maintaining 'a stiff upper lip', Old Chap? :arg

Remember, being a$$es is a full-time calling for some; but they succeed only when we fold. Let it go - water off a ducks' back. And.... if you saved any of that thread, I'd encourage you to re-post it. Yours are among the most enjoyable threads here.

Too bad, most of us loved it.

It was a completely innocent misunderstanding, of "the two nations divided by a common language" variety.

I will put the thread back but I will try to make it a bit better. Please allow a day or two.

I just noticed that it's back. Thank you!
