Dissent is banned, and so, delusional Stan apart, it is effectively a monologue. If I wanted the classic example of someone boring everybody to death, or a place where you have left yourself barking at your own shadow, I need look no further. You're almost the forums' Steve Davis of boring people to death, except hardly anybody bothers to play with you.

You really are the biggest obnoxious hypocrite to ever roam these boards. Firstly you imply Mugwump effectively having his own blog, when effectively YOU have your own thread in which you were made a moderator of to STOP me from truth bombing the hell out of it, you vented pandemonia due to me posting ON YOUR SCIENCE FICTION ASTRONOMY THREAD. So to assume Mugwump has his own blogs is simply wide of the mark. Hypocrite. And Secondly, I find fractions of Mugwumps postings quite insightful whereas your postings contain a mountain of obnoxious vitriolic ramblings filled with brain insults if people disagree with your close minded, hypnotic fictional parrotings. At least Mugwump is a free thinker who thinks for himself, So if he's Steve Davis, the player most fitting for you is JOHN PARROT. All Gob and no action. :lol:

I'm always impressed with how quickly the online bookies react to live events in horse racing - Flying Officer was a favourite at York last week but he unseated Frankie Dettori when hacking down to the start, then disappeared off up the course for a mile or so and battered down one of the rails, he was withdrawn from the race and because there were only five other horses left the panic button was hit, a rule 4 declared and the chart of odds went crazy on Skybet within 60 seconds of the incident starting, luckily I got a 5/1 on Clever Cookie before they took a new view on everything and he started at 5/2 just a few seconds later - fascinating to watch it happen live.

On the other hand and in a "make it up as you go along" style, at Catterick a couple of weeks ago I twice put a £2 each way on a horse at one of the on site bookies and my mate behind me in the queue had the odds adjusted downwards before he could get in :D I'm sure it was a coincidence and that £4 didn't spoil that bookies day but who knows, this was Catterick and they are a bit strange up there.


aye and they watered the track just for clever cookie! i was on flying officer :evil:

im sure if your mate asked for the price you got they would have given it him! i had a 100/1 winner at catterick years ago in a 2yr maiden, fond memories of the track!

I don't "imply" anything, he very clearly has! Are you saying it isn't basically that?

Wait a minute, what the fsck is your point? If I were COMPLAINING about Mugwump's blog thread then that might be hypocritical but of course I'm not!!! On the contrary! I merely make an observation as to that thread. I would rarely post it it, but have no issue whatsoever with its existence or rules. So what the fsck is hypocritical about that?

The truth is, there are TWO separate threads. The Astronomy thread is for straight, non-conspiracy, information and discussion. The second is for discussing matters conspiratorial. If there is something on the rational Astronomy thread that you want to "truth bomb" :lol: then feel free - but in the thread designed for the purpose!

You fail to see such an obvious point. That not everyone wants every single thread, on whatever news emerges in the world, to be instantly taken over by delusionals such as you claiming to know "the truth" about what really happened, and peddling your mad conspiracist bunkum. You are free to do it - in the appropriate place. You don't need to be able to pollute EVERY thread.

The essential point though is not about whether your drivel is right, or I am wrong. It is about the forum rules which prohibit behaviour such as deliberately diverting threads, etc etc. It's just housekeeping. The Astronomy thread is just ONE THREAD. If you have anything to post on the same subject, you can do so in the delusionals thread, anyone who wants to discuss it with you (self-included) will see it just the same and will post in reply just the same. Everyone knows this.

Mugwump seems happy with his blog thread, and (not that it matters, but just to be clear) that's fine by me. The point is, anyone who does want to stick within the strictly defined rules for subject matter of that thread is FREE TO DO SO. Ditto the Astronomy thread. But I do note you're not calling him a hypocrite for ruthlessly censoring dissent in that thread. Why is that, Stan? Because you operate double standards. It's a thread where you are able to post your stuff, and so that's fine. But you wouldn't, if it was up to you, agree to extend the same courtesy to people who want to stick with the straight Astronomy thread. that is why you are a stinking hypocrite.

The reality is that YOU are the stinking hypocrite, because you want to pollute and smokescreen anything you don't agree with by spewing acres of drivel at it. You are attempting to act as a censor. That is illustrated by your ignoring any questions or points put to you. All you want is a platform for your mad ramblings. You can't deal with criticism, and you won't consider any alternatives.

Nobody is saying you can't put your deluded views. It's not as if we are short of them. Just do it a centimetre down the fscking page.
