    Rolleyes

    Back in the good old days of CW, the rolleyes was a deadly weapon. If someone brought that out in an argument, boy did you know you'd rattled them. And then you had posters like TT Boy who would take great pleasure on responding to your **** with a post consisting purely of the rolleyes

    Of course, some took this personally.

    'Well gosh there was no need for that' they would say. And this led to people using it and saying 'rolleyes fully deserved'

    Your humble narrator even started a thread about it, tongue in cheek of course my brothers, asking whether posters should be banned for excessive use. Of course, this ended in a Richard V Sanz bitch fight and was locked by pasag in a fit of almighty rage.

    And so here we are. Having used the great liberally this past couple of days, I can't help but think it's become a neglected species (save perhaps for honestbharani whom I think does use it, normally when someone states an opinion at the expense of facts).

    Is this because CW is more polite these days? I somehow doubt it yo.

    So I say this. Endeavour from here on to throw it a rolleyes once in every ten posts you make. You'll offend a few people and feel better for it.

    Yours sincerely
    GIMH

    There is far too little use made of all the emoticons these days, which is a shame in some ways, but much more entertaining in others - I always used to use an appropriate one if I was joking, but these days I prefer not to, so folk can't be sure I'm not just being a ****

    *Notes GIMH has started another new thread*

    *instantly

    Guess sometimes the online world reflects the real one....
    "All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusions is called a philosopher." - Ambrose Bierce
    Langeveldt: I of course blame their parents.. and unchecked immigration!
    GingerFurball: He's Austrian, they tend to produce the odd ****ed up individual
    Burgey: Be careful dealing with neighbours whose cars don't have wheels but whose houses do.
    Uppercut: Maybe I just need better strippers
