Re: What`s everyone up too?

They don't. Not everyone has time to write Andrew. Grant I don't blame anyone for not writing for the Journal, for whatever reason. Personally I felt it was largely futile and almost completely lacking in any sense of achievement, given the (almost) complete absence of any evidence that anything I ...

Re: Online whinging

...also, in the interests of full disclosure, my avatar is not really a picture of me. People may have good reason to be anonymous. There's a long history of people adopting non de plumes. I doubt we have any women posting, for example. If we did I wouldn't be at all surprised if they wanted to hide...

Re: Online whinging

...but if people want to complain about The Journal, The SOTCW, or this forum, I personally think it's only fair if you post your real name at the end of your comment(s). Grant Why? What difference does a name make? Personally I've seen little whinging/complaining. I've seen a lot of people trying ...

Oh and perhaps it's worth pointing out that if anyone is tempted by this and is going to WMMMS this weekend you might want to put off purchasing til after the show. I can't guarantee it at the moment, but I should be there with a limited number of copies (all with a corner tastefully creased by WV'...
