    Well I suppose it could have been 'What is best, right handed double enders or left handed?'

    WTF is his avatar? He looks like he is advertising as a male escort (obviously I would have no idea how a male escort advertises)

    Forums may come and go; but it remains exactly the same people spouting the usual bollox. You look at the main forums and it is all the usual suspects on there.

    We armchair divers take a dim view of the term "bollox" dear boy. We much prefer "theoretical hypotheses" if you don't mind.

    People just get older and change their interests. I've used to be a term paper writer, now I do business. That's the main reason why many forums are closed. The second reason is spam. Many forums just don't have enogh protection.
