Re: NPR lifeboat - New Forum

Weirdo. On another note, I still have to register in NPR but noticed they had at least 3 Irish mods. What's going down with that? Do you mean because their names are in green? The green names on NPR are members of the The Swarm group. It's a handy self-ID group set up for the little rascals to join...

I'm pro Scotland having another independence vote and for there to be a set minimum period before they can vote again if they do not vote to leave.
