Rule of thumb:

Wait until two or more people reply after your post in the thread before posting again in it, that helps a lot in reducing chatting. However, if the discussion requires paragraph response of about 10+ lines, then you dont have to follow that rule.

Hell, even that has a time limit on it! I haven't been able to reply to JamezBeer's PM yet, because I'm too busy evading this incredibly long posting quota! :x

Here is my suggestion to battle pointlessness: How about we vote on which threads we could do without, like the game threads and never-ending threads? I'm not trying to be a bossy wench or whatever, but it's the only solution that I can think of. Do we REALLY need "What are you wearing now" and "What are you eating now?" Seriously, I don't care what you're eating, nor do I care to hear what you're wearing.

For until there's a resolve, if you want to reply to a PM, do not post for 3 minutes and then write the PM up and send.

I must agree! It was killing me! The 3-minute rule probably taught spammers and chatters a lesson! :lol:

The fifth of November is Guy Fawkes' Night or Bonfire Night. This is a British festivity.

The story of Guy Fawkes goes back to the early 1600ïs. During this period there were religious problems between Protestants and Catholics in Britain. King James I was a Protestant and he passed severe laws against Catholics. They were not permitted to have religious services.

A group of 12 Catholics decided to kill the King James I and destroy the Parliament Building. They planned to blow up The Houses of Parliament on 5 November 1605, when the King was present. This was called the Gunpowder Plot.

The leader of the plot was Robert Catesby. The plotters put 30 barrels of explosives in the cellar under the Parliament Building.

Guy Fawkes was an expert with explosives. His responsability was to guard the barrels of explosives and light the fuse on 5 November.

The Kingïs soldiers discovered the plot. Guy Fawkes was immediately arrested and tortured. The other plotters were found three days later. Guy Fawkes and the others were hanged.

On the night of 5 November 1605 many people in London were very happy because the plot was discovered. To celebrate (Level 1 or Level 2) they started bonfires in the street. Someone made an effigy of Guy Fawkes and burned it. Every since the British have celebrated Guy Fawkes' Night..

The celebrating of "Bonfire" or "Guy Fawkes' Night" is well established in England. These days it is an excuse to let off fireworks and have a good time. Its origins are all but forgotten, although everyone knows of Guy Fawkes and the rough outline of the story. Any religious significance is certainly absent these days, except perhaps in Lewes where 5th Nov is particularly relished.


me and my friends are getting some fireworks for tonight , then we re gonna watch the Simpsons coz it starts on Channel4 tonight , they are paying over £500,000 per EP :shock:

Right now, I'm trying to think of new thread ideas which will be both be successfully attractive to users and make peaceful discussion without causing any sign of sarcasm or flames, sort of want to lower the talk on political issues, which is causing upset. I think it'll be best to find something else to talk about in off-topic and here. :)
