I totally agree with Gayna on this one. Any comment from Phil Mccavity (Ah Soh) or his stupid little buddy Ben Dover should be immediately deleted. If house rules included names and addresses perhaps they would not be so forthcoming with their crass comments, tho perhaps they both are not very bright and possibly do not understand what I am saying because possibly they are both Numpties?. Glad everyone wasnt badly hurt tho.
