I wrote "Old fogies" and not "old people."

I thought it was rude to name people but I would never consider LongBYT or Odile, or Meloncollie and many others in the former category.

But there have been a few threads recently where a few older members of the forum have been a bit off in their responses to newcomers and others.


I've upset you with the yodel posts, obviously! Damn, feeling my age!

Well, to be fair, people usually come here to ask for advice. Unfortunately, some posters take this opportunity to reply in a trolling style for entertainment or self-gratification purposes. Some of these posters have been on EF longer than me and some have joined only recently. These posters also tend to be male.


...and non-Scots, because we are sweet as pie...except Glaswegians and Campbells!

Let's not single out anyone...Tom was very vague, let's keep it that way and boost the sense of decency. Some of the most informative (maybe cocky, too) posts keep coming from our legends. We just need to be nicer to noobs, me thinks. Nice noobs. Or sweeter (thanks MacTav).

Quite agree - though the three posters/trolls that annoy me the most are women (I think...).
Women are annoying. It's a fact.
Don't even start about troll women...

Ha! Why...because you are French, cocky and you have a cute accent? That's an old cliche that is broken. Doesn't work no mo. We need Nil back.

UK had no speed limits on motorways in 1961, the M! was used for speed testing cars by manufactures in the early hours of the morning
Any youngish chap with a car that could do 100mph would do the same.

There weren't many affordable cars that could do 100mph in those days, so reaching that gave you some bragging rights.

Nil? You mean the adjective for "non-existent" or that old stinky river full of crocodiles and other dirty things?

Oh wait...let's take tea biscuits and cup of tea, for specific old women with hardly any teeth left, so they can dip-and-suck*.

*With a bit of added laxative, the feeling and respect is still there and is still mutual.

The Swiss Campbells ARE nice, the ones in Glencoe had a tendency to massacre their hosts!
