Barry from Australia is a questioning soul who looks at social issues from an alternative point of view and instead of asking, “Why?”, he asks “Why not?” He’s convinced that many of his previous incarnations were spent in China. He feels drawn to the people there; attracted by their rich culture and way of life. If given one wish from God, he’d reply, “I want everyone on Earth to be the same colour, speak the same language, and treat each other as they themselves would like to be treated.”

What a great idea!


Knowing that Peter is an extraordinarily busy guy, quite probably either Imi or Roger would also do a fantastic job of managing the forums and blogs.

Look at President Mugabe - even at age 93, he wanted to remain the head of Zimbabwe and had to be nearly carried out of office.  Some people cannot see that their turn has come.  Not that I'm saying you're akin to Mugabe, John  - this is just an illustration to highlight what I mean.

John, you and I are both old farts. Facts are facts.  This site needs a much younger management in my view, in order to help revitalise it.  I hope you'll forgive my candour in saying it has gone stale.   Grumpy old crotchety men like Paul Fox, you and I need to be shown the door.  Given the boot.  Told to go out and do some knitting whilst quietly rocking in the armchair.  Said of course, with all due respect and wiithout prejudice to everyone involved..

Come on, Roger!  Come on, Imi!

Who wants to inject some fresh energy and youthful vigour into this area?   (dance)(dance)

I thought I'd wait until after Barry's first DATE after Lily before responding.

At this rate we'll be reading "My First Date After Lily - Part 94' before Barry actually gets one. It's draining..................

By the way, I hope everyone understands that what I've said above is not meant to be taken particularly seriously.  It was meant as a slice of sledgehammer humour.  I meant it when earlier in the comments, I mused aloud that life was too short to bear grudges.


Thank you also to Imi for your concerns and advice.  I value and appreciate your thoughts, more so than many others on this website.   (handshake)

But the main message is  -  for Pete's sake, can everyone here please LIGHTEN UP.


If @PaulFox wants to call me a fucking idiot who writes fucking rubbish that bores the fucking hell out of him, then let him be. Underneath it all, I bear him no genuine malice.


What I will always take pride in however, is that on this website, I have both received (and replied to) more comments than any other blogger on CLM, even those industrious bloggers who over time have penned substantially more articles than me. 


Why is this so?


I have my own ideas on this, but I'll let you make up your own minds about it.

Cheers to all. (beer)(beer)(beer)

@JohnAbbot  Thanks for the offer, John, but I'm afraid that I'm going to have to decline.  I'm just far too busy right now.  Witness the fact that I still haven't finished writing my second blog entry yet even though I started it last Wednesday.

I was about to borrow your stock standard phrase and tell you to LIGHTEN UP but you beat me to it. Now you are telling us that your torrential words of indignation were just an act. Way to go Barry! Exactly how old are you?

#2017-12-06 12:59:05 by Barry1 @Barry1



"Way to go Barry! Exactly how old are you?"

Yes Melcyan, I even love you too!  (wasntme)

@paulfox1 - that was a much more pleasant way of offering up criticism. Would it be too much to ask you to continue using that great sense of humour to make your point in the future and refrain from the expletive filled cannon fodder approach? 

@RWByrum - that's a disappointing but not unexpected response to my suggestion. It is a fairly thankless task moderating the blogs and forum, as you may have noticed, and no doubt most people have better things to do with their time.

However, Barry's points, while perhaps ones that could have been made privately, are valid ones and I am going to look to finding ways to either attract a younger, but still reasonable, moderator, or to move the system into one that moderates itself by having members able to move to strike postings that they find offensive, and allow the majority to rule on the issue.

@melcyan - good one, I wish I had said that.

@Barry1 - I have to admit that I went back to your many comments and really struggle to find any humour, sledgehammer or otherwise, in any of them. Would you mind pointing out where the funniest parts are so we all can go back and enjoy that aspect of them. That might lighten what has been a fairly heavy load for everyone who has participated in this misadventure.

John, in a fuller response to your comment, you've prompted me to write a blog article on it, entitled


My First Date After Lily (Part 7)

I hope you'll find it both a little illuminating as well as mildly entertaining.


Best wishes to all.   (beer)(beer)

My First Date After Lily (Part 7)

OMG......have you actually HAD a date, or was it just 'Mrs PALMer' and her five 'lovely daughters' ?


Why bother having a moderator at all? Let's just have a 'free-for-all' for a while.

Much more fun, lol




#2017-12-07 20:58:57 by paulfox1 @paulfox1


Did I actually SAY you are a 'fucking idiot'?

Sorry mate, I thought it was ME who is the 'idiot'. Let me make a suggestion - go and have a couple of weeks in the UK, USA, or anywhere in the Northern 'Hemisphere'. Spend some time 'upside down' so the blood will rush to your head and we might get some sense out of you.

You know, the more research I DO, the more of a 'fucking idiot' I become..

Funny, that....................
