Gentle! We should be gentle to a lurker, a parasite who feeds on our information without even a breath of 'thanks'.

PS. All is forgiven. Welcome to the Fold - er Forum.

Wow they seem well trained I like this fresh meat!

Just don't ask if you salary is enough to get buy on, insult pets, bring up smoking or indeed discuss are the swiss racist and you'll be fine. Give as good as you get and don't take anything from anyone.

That's my survival tips

Hi Messi, welcome to the club!

Re the multi-year lurkage, I suppose we'll give you the benefit of a discount, say 15% on Sfr 1'000/yr.
Paypal, or credit card?
Should we gift wrap your subscription?

Ciao

Paul

Re: Long time lurker.......

And push-chairs in elevators, or in fact, push-chairs in general, just avoid that.

Re: Long time lurker.......

Right then, let me get this straight. I have to steer clear of any threads mentioning the following..... salary, pets, smoking, racsim, pushchairs, antinursing, and jello. Avoid having a cake in my avatar, and on top of all that, i have to pay a fee?!
