In that case your better of using Tapatalk on your phone. It lists all the new threads as they are posted from the latest back, regardless of what part of the forum they are posted in.


You can do that through a normal browser too. It is what I use: :)

Maybe they ...a) are rude b) don't like the answer they got c) forgot they started the thread?


Rule1: don’t reply to someone with a post count of sub 400.
Rule2: don’t reply to Xplora or you get the opposite effect.

Good to see that people are coming back to this thread and it's up to page 3. Maybe the problem really is just a trivial minority. :)

The real question is why do some people keep starting so many threads and not disappear?

Every time someone resurrects this thread I feel I must post something lest I be labelled a hypocrite. Im sorry I started it now. It probably was about someone in the beginning but Ive forgotten who it was.

I know how you feel- the difference for my recent thread is people also hate me for raising it. Perhaps I should have disappeared after starting the thread- get my wife to go vegan and become malnourished etc

I thought you made a good point, and I've said much the same myself before. But you should've known where that was going to end up ;)

I knew exactly where it was going to end up- some unspoken things need to be questioned on occasion
