    Constantly bleating and whining about people breaking forum guidelines when they are the only ones making your dirt-bag thread of any interest.

    It certainly is relevant; Grampy Bobby cited as his first choice of "101 ways to kill a forum thread" as being disregard of the forum guidelines, something which you wholeheartedly agree with.

    In fact, considering that Grampy Bobby has been banned probably more times than all the other regular GF posters put together, and that you are one of the contributors to a whole forum being shut down, I'd suggest that you and he get together and form a self-help group.

    🙂

    Whining? On the contrary I exalt in the opportunity it has given me to tell the people what you are really like. The beneficent face of a Buddha but a heart of pure treachery.
