I'd go so far as to wager that the recent drop in posting is due to a few members who are primarily looking to stir shit.   ;)

The best part about stirring shit is licking the spoon.  :zoinks:

None of it, actually. But I'm sure new drama will come along.

Although drama does tend to drive up site activity in the short run, in the long run people get tired of it (at least most of us do) and leave to other sites or activities.

I went away in 2008-9 largely for that reason. I had way too much drama and conflict IRL and didn't need even more of it online.

I'd go so far as to wager that the recent drop in posting is due to a few members who are primarily looking to stir shit.   ;)

Some of it, sure.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

Then they all grew up and left the nest and never write home any more.   :'(

I spoke to Lorna briefly, she is doing well.  Unlikely to come back though.

I apologize for speaking out of turn. You are better than me in every possible way. I am indeed the biggest coward around.

Yes :green: :green: :green: And that's a good name for Northern Ireland.

I've been in Budapest for the best part of a year. It's awesome. The city is stunning, and for a small town gal,  just living in a big city is awesome.

The people are so sweet, and scarily polite :LOL: The neighbours sacrifice dogs on our behalf :zombiefuck:

Almost all my friends from Jurassic Park made the move with us, so settling in was easy.

Best thing I've ever done in my life :2thumbsup: :2thumbsup: :2thumbsup:

I'm thinking of moving to Scotland or Wales in a few years, or maybe to Manchester. A close friend of mine is moving to Manchester in September so I might see if I can stay with them until I can afford a place of my own.

Scotland will probably hold another independence vote in a few years time. I got fed up with Jurassic Park a long time ago, now I'm getting fed up with the UK in general. Ireland seems nice but I'm not really considering moving down there. If I am to escape Jurassic Park, it seems that Scotland looks like my destination. Wales seems quite nice too though.

Ancestors were Scottish anyway, apparently but it might to too expensive to move up there. I do have family in Wales, so it would make things a little easier.

I dunno. I'll just see how things go.
