Money Savers Arms

Last ooorders!… We’re sorry but for now, due to resources, we need to close the Money Savers Arms including Discussion Time.

It’s not easy to write this. We love the forum, but we also have a job to do to protect it, our users and MoneySavingExpert, and at the moment, with all our resources focused on Coronavirus information, and all the team at home, we don’t feel we have the resources to do a good enough job.

For four months, we’ve been struggling to cope with the huge volumes of messages we’ve been getting from Forumites – many of whom are in desperate and dire straits with their finances. The team have been working all hours to try and keep on top of it. At first we thought it’d be a short sharp spike, but it isn’t, it’s continuing, so we have had some difficult choices to make about prioritisation.

Unfortunately in, and likely because of, these stressful times, the Forum team have also been receiving an increasing number of complaints about posts made on the Money Savers Arms and Discussion Time. The team have done what they can to try and walk the tightrope of balancing all the various interests, but for now we need to draw a line under this and temporarily close this Board, so we can keep the key, MoneySaving boards – where people are supporting each other through this crisis - running smoothly.

We know this board is important to you, but as the MSE stance has been forbearance throughout this crisis, now we ask that of you. We’re sorry. Of course you can post on other boards, but we’d ask you to stick to the subjects of those boards, and not use them as a surrogate Money Savers Arms or Discussion Time. And as always please be kind and friendly to each other, especially any newbies.

    ....any female comedian, other than Sarah millican.... soz above poster

    Katherine Ryan, the Canadian female comedian is very funny.

    I can't see anything remotely funny in Keith Lemon either, but there are worse including Micky Flannigan, and any others who need to use foul language to get their laughs......doesn't say much about their audience either.

    Many but oddly the one that first came to mind was Jeremy Corbyn. He is probably very principled but always seems very dour and seems to revel being involved with bad situations. Maybe in private, he is completely different.
    (This is about his personality and not political).

    Mr Bean: I just see him as a man with autism or learning difficulties.

    Absolutely agree! Comedy is not making faces.

    The best actor for expressions in my my book is Brad Garrett, who plays the brother in Everyone Loves Raymond.

    The whole Big Bang Theory team are pretty good, too.

    Miranda and ColinW.

    Only joking Colin...Miranda is moderately funny.

    I do find Colin's 'one liners' quite funny sometimes ... :rotfl:
    No idea who 'Miranda' is though ... :(

  • Can't say I find any of the modern comedians funny.

    Not that I really watch many of them.

    I prefer the older dirtier ones.

    Not that you ever saw their blue acts on telly anyway. You'd have to make a special effort in a club or by VHS/DVD.
