Just one more thing ........


Very Happy

Seriously, I get the pee taken out of me at work for saying that... well weird, as they didn't know about my 'Columbo' forum user name (I use that on a few), but I ended up with that nickname - plus I rub me temple with one hand whilst walking too - nervous habit, or reality imitating art?

;D

Well, according to what I wrote down on the tiny notebook that I carry in my trenchcoat pocket, it appears that art imitates life, but then in turn influences people in their real lives, so that life ends up imitating art.

Ollie: "Tell me that again."
Stan: "Well, if you get some art, then it's imitated you, but then when you look in your notebook, you find that you've imitated the art, so in real life, art imitates notebooks."
Ollie: "That's very well put. Now I get it."

I've not time for all that - life isn't short enough.

And of course... any bird can build a nest, but it's not every bird that can lay an egg!

Very Happy Go on... guess what I watched today!

wow I never knew anything about this thread and all this spam filter hassle till now (Ive been gone for a while). I didn't realise they could cause so much hassle.

I have to say it's a real pain these days with bots signing up. The staff (including myself) spend more time on the forum manually deleting bots these days. It's literally every 5 mins a new one signs up and some of them post malicious virus links. I'm sorry you had so much trouble joining up at the start Columbo. I hope it's all sorted now. It's not a great start for any new member. Being a family forum means 10 times the work. I should point ut that all the staff here help out volountarily and without expecting any rewards and I am sure I speak for all the admins and members when I say they do a great job and their efforts are highly appreciated. We thrive on being a forum of fellowship and we too get frustrated when situations like this arise. I also know first hand how frustrating it can be trying to get on to some forums.

With all that said, as far as I know this is an isolated incident so I do hope you find the forum a bit more user friendly now Columbo.

Have a cigar?

This is true. There for a while, every time I would log onto the Forum, there would be new posts by new "members" selling prescription drugs and videos of... let's just say that these videos had nothing to do with Laurel and Hardy. You guys do a great job in keeping this Forum up and running and clean. I hope that everything is OK with you, Columbo. It's good to have you here with us.

I had that happen to me the first time I posted, for some reason I said I liked L and H as a "teen" as in teenager, and was told it was a no no word. I was baffled and didin't post for awhile but tried again. I think you guys are doing a great job, didin't realize how much was involved in keeping this forum up and running. Still don't know why the teen word was considered a no no...

The word teen is commonly used in the profiles of these fake 'bot' members when describing some weird website they're plugging.

IMHO, the "Laurel & Hardy Forum" has become THE internet place for fans of the comedy team. My (bowler) hat's off to you!
