    This is a social forum, banter, jokes, any discussions (light hearted or serious, if not fitted for the CA forum).

    You might add; no banter, jokes, bad language, humour or discussions allowed :twisted:
  3. And I might say, open your eyes lofty :evil:

    I'm saying nothing about the spelling........

    This forum is very confusing, the rules that seem to apply to it dont seem to fit the description of use, if anything I would class this forum the same as current affairs where the banter is limited and things are kept factual....infact I'd go so far as to say what's the point in having two identical forums?

    It either needs to develop it's own style or get merged.
