Ironic if this wins, given in both guises the OP was almost, shamefully, banned.

Gets my vote though.

May be a few just as good, but I have slept since then, albeit not much.

To be fair John Isabel didn't exactly get banned. He turned himself in for the good of another. Kind of like the dad in beauty in the beast - or perhaps (as it's Christmas after all) he was a modern day saviour, who sacrificed himself to absolve others.

Personally i think he was a madman your honour. A desperate fool at the end of his pitiful rope............

Breach2 will win this by a mile. No complaint at that. (Obviously you need the context of Breach 1 to appreciate it. Timing is everything with comedy.)

On the technical side, a couple of the threads that taught me a lot also came as a pair. This was back in January and February, but they are not there now, so I cannot nominate them. Some of you might remember the bright-sounding apparent youngster who had done his VAT homework.

So (serious hat on) I have been gratified to see a change of approach from the editorial/moderation team at Aweb in relation to deleting the 'baby' threads (I don't object to the removal of bathwater).

Not like me to disagree with learned colleagues but it's got to be Jerry and his phantom Arts Council grant.

If anyone's keen on sweeping the board then so long as you use an incognito browser you can vote in all of these as many times as you like.

Now let's get one thing quite clear, I most definitely told you an argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition. Tisn't just contradiction!

These days the merits of any particular proposition, or connected series of statements intended to establish same, play second fiddle to faux facts (aka lies), personal attacks on the proposer and cheap mockery of anything they say.

It was so long before the current incumbent gave such behaviour presidential approval.

A professional forum would be one place you might expect to find respite from the modern norm. In here, that happens in about one thread in a hundred*

*Stat made up, not measured. Ironic, isn't it?
