    I have been thinking about the whole Ad PPR thingy.
    It really shouldn't be that difficult. Make a user name and dont use it on this part of the board.
    Post in the Arms or where ever for a couple of weeks, keep running the nonsense names along side. Then stumble across this board with a decent post count under your belt.
    That's how I would do it.

    If ad wanted to stay on here discretely with a new ID, I'm sure he could do so..... Just power down the adsl modem to get a new IP address, clear the cookies and cache, change the mac address on the network, and if all else fails buy a 3G card to get a new ISP. Or just save yourself the effort and browse through an anonymiser.

    My guess is that he's making a point and playing a game with the site by announcing himself.

    It is brilliant how excited people get over house prices - almost fanatical in devotion to one side or the other. I wonder what % of MSEers would think we had just been through a housing bubble? What % think they are more attractive than their next door neighbour? What % have heard of QE?

    You confuse me Mr Mewbs. Sometimes you can come across as very caring and thoughtful and other times as quite cutting.

    You will learn far more from a speech by the commentator who predicted the last crash, Muriel Houdini, than any of this nonsense.

    Any relation to Harry?

    In all seriousness I think predicting where house prices go nowadays is a bit like predicting the stock market - pretty pointless. Up one day (month) and down the next day (month). Someone's right, someone's wrong.

    By the way, sorry for the Harry joke. Quite lame really, but I can't be ar*ed to think of anything else after a bottle of wine.

    It might be the wine, but that's gone right over my head. I've thanked it anyway, just in case it was a very trendy, timely, comedic reference that has somehow passed me by.

    Cleaver I really love you and what would you say if i told you i was watching U2 live in los angeles in 1987 (Party Girl) getting warmed up for the giants gig later this month. Also what would you say if i told you i was also mewbie?

    I'm reacting to all of that with emotions based around confusion and suspicion.

    Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit young man. I suspect you're a nightmare for your wife. ;)
    No wonder she confines you to your room with the PC.

    This place is turning into a John Osborne play. I may just take up drink myself.
