  3. Costas says:


    Yeah mate, I was on my cell. It’s not a Blackberry, but I also have issues when I use to post here. It said that it failed to publish the comment and it appeared twice here. Go figure.

  4. wayne says:

    Captaincunt9 – No I have not called “everyone” on here a fucker. Just you and the snide Megleeker, Zibbie and that fucking scum cunt YipYap. Get your facts right son.

  8. King Eric says:

    captain – Your posts arent even consistent. Sometimes you use the letter “u” to replace “you”. Then in the next post you don’t. Some on here may be taken in but not me. You cant blag a blagger.

    @CedarsDevil, – hot air balloons, and income tax.

    Deliberate style selection.

    Random, irrational yet intentional drifting from literacy to rhubarb and back is indicative of fraud.

    Any idea who this cedric fella is? Cannot recall seeing him post here before, yet he has been addressed a couple of times on this thread

  12. smartalex says:


    it would appear that cedric is an invisible friend.
    Schizophrenic persona share their imaginary world, for they believe it to be real.

    BOFA, as eloquent with words as he is a true gentleman
