BAD Fozzy! I have just had a trip along Memory Lane to a time when men were creeps (NAMWLT, obvs.) and women were silly (NAWWLT, obvs.) and some people were just like they are now, only younger.

[And I've been trying to see what embarrassing posting behaviour Fozzy has been trying to bury with the zombie threads. I'd completely forgotten that The "Why The F*ck Do You Need To Lose Weight?" Weight Loss Thread had an ancestor.]

iirc, there were some successful attempts to 'fill' a whole page of threads with responses by the same person. Can't recall who it was - long time ago...]

Well known reason for having a bank holiday.

Fascinating! I read almost the whole thread like a weird story. Some departees, some gone and come backers, some ever presents! I 'did' post on the ' "Why The F*ck...' thread for a while, which was an interesting exercise in Fetch psychology if nothing else - but I never knew of its ancestors existence.

It's actually quite repetitive so I skipped bits... but fascinating nevertheless. One or two peeps seem to start out saying one thing and bit by bit reveal themselves to be of alternative opinion. Well, that's what I thought!
