Didn't pick up on that before, UW. Thought you were being your usual vague self. :P
Hope it's going well. :thumbup:

Some of us here are sticking up for your right to be a tool and drawing the line at some of the more unsavoury posting but do yourself a favour, show some maturity yourself and dial it in a bit. You never know, people might actually start to be pleasant to you.

Anyone know if they're selling tickets at the gate today? Want to see if I can avoid Ticketmaster charge.

There's a ticket office at the entrance to the North Stand. There should be tickets available there.

Problem is that I think he's serious most of the time. Hence ignoring is the more tactful option.

This forum wouldn't be the most progressive corner of the internet. A worrying amount of posters clearly have sexist and/or homophobic leanings which don't reflect those of this country.

I've huge respect for UnseenWork feeling comfortable enough to share about themselves on here.
When you agree with me it makes me doubt what I say because you are totally dishonest on here most of the time
As in his snide comment about both Leinster and SOB in his previous post ?

Cooney is Ireland's best scrum half. Criminal he wasn't starting in Japan. Miles ahead of Luke anyhow.

Ok, I might have got a bit carried away. Should defo have been on the plane IMO.

Well done Stockdale. Really smart and composed defending at the end.

It’s never really ok to tell someone to kill themselves, call them a retard or tell them they’ve special needs . Stop making excuses for yourself and just ignore him if he’s winding you up that easily

Jumper is a bit of a special case, but it's better to just ignore him than engage.

People don’t even have to ignore him or get on with him , just avoid the disgustingly offensive remarks that involve suicide or mental health issues etc . It’s really not that difficult

You know if Zappa is actually doing a bit of moderating around here that things have gone truly beyond the pale

Despite living 15 minutes away by train I have only really spent an hour in Bath over the last two years, does seem to have its charms though.

It's a very handsome city but the fun isn't great outside matchday. Bristol is more craic.

That's the vibe I get, there's just nothing particularly dragging me out there and plenty keeping me in Bristol!
