    Well maybe if you come away from this thread and you look at the masses of threads started by him today you might start to see the full picture.

    And I do understand G.L. Wilson because he is an obvious troll as plain as day, if you don't then I am sorry for you.

    Frankly, that doesn't surprise me somehow.
    Really? I wasn't knocking university education as I have studied at one of the world's best for the last seven years and hold a top class degree. I was merely knocking a racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-semitic - sorry you didn't spot him.

    Oddly, an old term for a condom in England was 'rubber Johnny' often just shortened to 'Johnny'.

    If you ever live in Wales, make sure you know the Gaelic for both 'Ladies' & 'Gents' toilets.

    Good for you. There may be plenty of humourless trolls in the world, none of them appear to be J L Wilson to me.

    Maybe I just can't see it.

    Why not just put the bloke on ignore?

    And put me on ignore while your at it ... PLEASE.

    Neely isn't the only one being annoyed by the trolling.

    They speak Gaelic in Wales? Are the two languages related?

    Thank you. I was thinking that I was the only sane one around at this time.

    ~Easy to do for you, and I will do that for sure, but not as easy to do for troll Wilson when half of the boards are full of homophobic, racist, anti-semitic, sexist stuff but I will try. Really though, maybe if you looked around you also might be able to see that too, never mind if not.

    Good night.

    I wish I had a 1 coin for every American who doesn't think that Gaelic is spoken anywhere but in Ireland. There is Manx, Welsh, Cornish & Scots' Gaelic still spoken in the UK. They are all related to Irish Gaelic, Breton & some Spanish Gaelic dialects.

    Welsh Gaelic is predominantly spoken in the north, nearer the Capital you will find most Welsh people, although mainly bilingual will speak English more often than Welsh.

    Thanks, I appreciate your candour. I'm not offended that you have put me on ignore, that's why I requested it.

    Apparently not. I suggest you utilise the ignore button.

    Of course, trolling is against the rules. So it would be best for the rules to be graciously followed.

    Well, I guess it's up to moderation then.
