This year.



That was so funny, just the idea that anyone would take it seriously.

One of my other favourite moments, I don't know if many people saw. There'd been another fight in Off Topic and one of the mods (think it was Rinc) had warned everyone that any more posts about it would just be deleted. One of the now banned people hadn't been involved in the fight, but decided he wanted to have his say about it after that. And he kept trying to post and every time he did Rinc would delete it straight away, and there was just this series of increasingly angry posts that would pop up for a minute only to vanish again.



I remember that. That was fantastic .

Only if we can give Paul the bravery medal for surviving both that Facebook discussion and the reactions of everyone when he got the lists threads deleted.


So far. .........







See? Don't mess with Paul. Or elab.


I'm a little disturbed by the light spanking comment earlier. I'm trying to work out if it's an exceptionally clever double bluff to make sure you're never warned because we worry you'll enjoy it too much

Drooch surely. As I may have mentioned elsewhere, it's only fair to remind people that happened because I said Scream 4 was bad. SCREAM 4.

I honestly don't remember. And because Rinc deleted everything I can't go back and check.

Problem is pinning anyone down to opinions this year that. What with there being no List reviews thread an all

The threads didn't go mental, probably because of where they were.

Aww, I missed so many good threads.

In a bit of seriousness though, I've had quite a nice Empire Year. Won a HoF then catastrophically lost a HoF. It's been good.

It's a shame the Manchester meet didn't happen. That could have been an epic night out considering half the people that showed an interest are no longer with us (and weren't at the proposed time of the meet).
