    this is the part i don't understand. why is a poster like you who contributes nothing but one or two liners and stupid gifs all over the place not criticized at all yet posters like MR and GIA who are way better and more thoughtful posters with real substance and at least interesting so castigated on this forum?

    like you have two brain cells to rub together and you probably don't even have the excuse of brain damage from abuse either. wouldn't you agree that's quite unfair, evaluating even yourself? lmao

    to show you i'm fair, i will criticize my own faults. my posting style is mostly crass, obnoxious, bitter (often), poor or non-existent grammar/spelling/punctuation and not concerned too much with pretty decorum. but i at least have real content and a real point to make.

    a forum like this would know what the word 'effervescent' means. why don't you try a word that is not so well-known or in typical usage.

    Celebrating the occasion when (singer) Susan Boyle released her first album:-
    #Susanalbumparty
    The BBC picked this one up - not sure what the world is coming to.
