I asked you because I remembered you had mentioned it, and was wondering. Nobody I see talks about Crackersville. Is he (me) the real Persona non Grata?

Let them run their site as they prefer. Such questions from what I understood are considered rude/inappropriate and I agree with this particular policy too. Each soul posting is important for a site. A real human (not a bot or spammer) with or without perfect English. Irrespective of origin. Correct grammar as you see fit. But the rest is not in your jurisdiction to ask.

Why do you turn against the people who have supported you? And hasn't abctales cherried you and helped you in many ways? You were front page. 

No dear fellow I am not going to apologize.

Do you think that if anyone from ABC came to inspect UKA's revamped site, your remarks about them would not be noticed? That may deter potential contributors.

I asked if my memory doesn't fail me, I remembered that you had mentioned it once upon a time and indeed, I was happy my memory didn't fail me that it's in better shape than my English and Greek language skills.

 

calm down.

No it's not correct,

 

An Italian that has a Greek username a Greek that has an Italian name and an Englishman that has Welsh last name walk into a bar,

 

funnily enough your calling them KGBtales of CIAuthors could be a very cool idea for spy fiction.

You can tell if an Englishman is really Welsh when he goes for a leek.

Quite simple, really. Try being reasonable.

 

 

Kind of goes both ways  . . . nicht wahr?

This thread was about the fab new mag that Sir John Bird is launching this September.

Let's discuss that instead, eh?

Back on topic, if you please.

? ? 

 

The mag will be including short stories and poems from new and unpublished writers. 

They use Wordpress for their site too! ?

Guardian Article:

It is necessary to “sugar the pill”, Bird explains. “The worst thing on earth is to be an enthusiast. If you are really, really enthusiastic about climate change, then you are probably incredibly boring.”

An Italian, a Greek and an Englishman who may or may not be Welsh walk into a pointless conversation.

 

The conversation owner says, "What is this, a joke?"

Was just reading through this forum and this did make me laugh! 

I don't always agree with Alfie but he is hilarious at times. ?
