To be fair though, after a few initial misunderstandings, the Kid and I (and a few other posters) do have an understanding and our posts (and digs) to one another, while sometimes polar opposites, are given (and taken) in good humour.
I also enjoy many of the threads where we actually agree with one another (it does happen now and again).
However, the same cannot be said about one or two other posters whose constant digs carry malicious undertones. I have decided that it's best not to converse with them.
Not sure about the GEI ancient character LB (I have been posting here for many years now), but yes it seems to have gone that way a bit recently.
I suppose I have to expect it a bit by being just slightly bearish rather than an end of the world type bear
