LOL, if only you were intellegent enough to see the irony in that statement.

LOL If only you were intelligent enough to be able to spell a simple word like 'intelligent'!

And that's why Syd, when you also spelt 'intelligence' wrongly earlier, I never mentioned it and normally never would. But when people like Donna start attacking someone's grammar, as she did to soarer, and accusing people such as Peter of not being intelligent, she ought to remember the old saying about people who live in glass houses!

She's actually not all that bright although I must admit that she's full of a certain amount of agressive bluster.

And yes, I'm still wearing my silly trousers and appearing in the Daily Express. It pays rather well you know!

Rupert, my dear man, a couple of observations.

Firstly, you really shouldn't think you will endear yourself to Peter by jumping to his defence like that, Peter is more than capable of giving as good , if not better than he gets, and will no doubt have a cutting reply ready for me when he is good and ready, without any help from others.

Secondly, my deliberate misspelling of the word intelligent, was a ploy to see if you would dive in head first and point it out, thus tricking you into the very act of criticism of someones grammar that you berated me for, Syd further added to the scheme by making the same deliberate spelling mistake. And I'm happy to see you fell for it, hook, line and sinker.

You see Rupert, we all like a laugh on here, we can be serious when needed, lend a sympathetic ear when folks are troubled and generally we all get on, so why dont you drop the "holier than thou" attitude and join in, you never know you may enjoy yourself.
I'll even buy you a drink at the virtual bar, what do you fancy ? vodka and sour grapes

So is Rupert better than anyone else because he can spell words that some others can't? and does Rupert never make a spelling mistake?
As long as a post can reasonably be read whats all the beef?
There are more things to worry about in this world.

I've no fondness for Rupert who seems a bit abrasive but I think that you're missing the point here. Donna Miller posted an article which she clearly said was true. Soarer pointed out that it was not and was an Internet urban myth. Donna Miller made no attempt to contradict him (as she obviously realised that she'd fallen for it) but simply attacked Soarer for his grammar. Rupert clearly said that he was only having a go at her grammar because, as he said, people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. The Internet article was full of errors which any really bright person would have corrected, especially a person who has the temerity to criticise others, as Donna did of Soarer. That's how I've seen it anyway, having read the thread from the beginning. Anyway, I'm out of this as well as it appears that it's impossible to argue with Donna who if she makes an error either says it wasn't or simply ignores any valid criticsm and attacks theĀ other person.

tosh urban myth you need to get out more


Yes Tom, he politely pointed out my stupidity, and just for yours, I cut and pasted the item, I never personally stated it was true, never spell checked it, and never for one second did I believe it to be factual.

Really, everyone knows BA don't do business class from Johannesburg

The developing problems between Russia and America could see the price of oil going through the roof, at worst, war between the super powers and of course Britain being dragged into the conflict, but not to worry we have our own conflict over here on this group regarding spelling and grammatical errors, ya gotta larf aintcha?

well said gustav.

I noticed on a thread in Motorhom Matters that rupert gets his enjoyment from adding spoiling posts, I am surprised that:
1 other posters bother to respond
2 the moderators dont ban such an obvious trouble maker.

He is not the only one though, I noticed that Donna chose to ignore the little wink by soarer in his post - and actually removed the smiley when she quoted it subsequently.

What makes people behave this way? What perverted pleasure can anyone get from such aggressive and insulting posts, dont these people realise that they are only making themselves look both foolish and obnoxious.

as gustav has said - there are a lot of things happening in the big world outside

War between Russia and America quiet simply will not happen, neither side can afford it.
What might happen is a series of "Proxy" wars in which other small local powers do the fighting for them, supplied with "military advisors" by the big two, until the big two get bored with it, and then it will end.

Gawwwd, I've only been away for a few days and come back and off we go again with the very people (or is it one person??) who claim to be ABOVE the triteness of this site actually starting aggro again. Do they have an inbuilt alarm that goes off when Donna posts so they can jump on her from a great height? As one who admits to being thick as a brush, contributing mainly to Chatterbox cos I am still learning with the other stuff (but do try and help there when I can), I think it's sad world when people can't just have harmless banter without some feeling threatened by it.

If the other site of which you speak is more to your level of intelligence, why not stick on it - or have you been sent here from the Members Bar with your big wooden spoon?

Point taken Malc, but not just any old newspaper. This came from the Daily Mail, the last bastion of truthful and objective journalism.

Mother in law takes the Daily Mirror Malc and its amazing how the same story ends up with entirely different conclusions. Looks like its up to the reader to take away the (usually political bias) to try and understand whats going on.

One way of testing the accuracy of newspapers ( and TV news ) is to listen to an interview with a politician on the radio, (or watch an interview with a politician on TV ) -and make a mental note of what he says.

Then read "what he said" in the newspapers, and you can see just how biased (either way) the newspapers are.

I dont think you would be able to get the Daily Mirror from your local chippy, elf-n-safety you know.
Perhaps if you had a look behind the door of a rural backwater loo you might be lucky enough to find a copy of the Daily Mirror cut into neat little squares hanging on a nail, preferably with Gordon Browns face prominantly displayed.

That's a bit hard on poor old Gordon - especially as our Olympic team have done so well since he became prime minister.
( He gets the blame for everthing that goes wrong so I'm just introducing a bit of balance).

Syd,
"Proxy" wars are set up by the bigger nations to test the waters so to speak before they send in the big guns.
It is not a case of can they afford to go to war, money will always be found to wage war.
America will only go to war if they have some other countries hand to hold, Britain perhaps?? America are very good at computer based wars where they start slinging ICBM's from a safe distance.
Waging war with Russia would be a blood and guts conflict at close quarters, the Yanks have no stomach for that.
The mightiest army in the world (Germany) could not tame the Russian bear.
Having said that I am not denigrating individual American courage, but America should stop trying to set herself up as the worlds policeman.

My civilized world has been turned upside down by this constant rain, I am self employed doing a job that is reliant on decent dry weather.
But it seems to be that someone up there doesn't like me because everytime I set foot out of the back porch door intent on loading up my motor for a good days work the heavens open.
Not your normal run of the mill shower but a monsoon, just as if someone has tipped a bin of water over my head, well I for one am sick of it, the money I put away for a rainy day is really being taken to task, but not to worry, I go into my workshop and light my woodburning stove and do a bit of painting, not any old type of painting but the canal barge type painting called "Roses and Castles" you know the stuff? painting up kettles, pans, buckets, watering cans etc etc that you see on canal barges.
So of course the smoke from my woodburner annoys my control freak of a neigbour who at the first whiff of woodsmoke starts moaning by saying her undies smell of woodsmoke to which I say "well close your knicker draw then"
Problems with the rain, my next door neighbour and my four dysfunctional kids who fortunately live 10 miles down the road all serve to make me realise that my 2.5 turbo charged Volkswagon campervan is my sanctuary where I can get away from all the trials and tribulations of life.
I told my wife to book us in on a campsite for a weeks peace and quiet anywhere? the Camping and Caravan Club site in outer Mongolia was fully booked up so we had to plump for a place in Shropshire.

Hi Nightrider
Think I may disagree with you about the germans being unable to beat the bear because I believe that if they had had a good leader then they probably would have done because they would have gone in a lot earlier than they did and done the job before the winter killed them off.

Still just an opinion, who really knows.

In my forces days we used to dread having the American forces BEHIND us.
Total disaster
