Sydney isn't the worst planned city in Australia, it's just we weren't built to accommodate millions of other nations 3rd world leftovers, back when roads only needed to be wide enough for a horse and cart.

Who could have possibly seen Rudd coming back in the 1800's, other than China of course?

Because they certainly saw us coming.

I just quickly logged into admin, then out again... and it's amazing, the stats have now skyrocketed, meaning, people weren't comfortable viewing these boards with some of the feral resident trolls knowing who was on/off deck.


Freedom is a wonderful thing, now they may post in peace.

My children are well adjusted happy kids, this opposed to being in foster care, like some .....


Smile It must be awful to be you, when you sit here all day spewing venom at virtual strangers.


At least when I have a go, it's usually tongue-in-cheek ,.... though with your sinister threats of harm, and persistent stalking of others/strangers, contacting them, their families, kids schools etc....wow, what a head case you are luvey.


Honestly, if you would just take your medication, (or go see a psychiatrist to prescribe you some) ...all those nasty, non productive, negative thoughts would go away.

Try it, and see if I'm wrong.

Because your paranoia is getting way out of hand.

Take only as directed, and see your doctor if pain persists.

Really, I don't think this forum is the site for you.... you don't get satire, or dark wit...this and don't have the required aptitude mind-set to be here right now.






Smile All the best, I now have to return to my writing....sorry, but I'm not a therapist, and really cant be of much more assistance, and neither could Yahoo, hence they closed your ghetto down to hopefully get rid of you.

((THANX for that YAHOO)))))

Rolling Eyes .... Is there a return policy?
