Personally, I'm not entirely convinced that the "Terrorists In The White House" forum makes a positive contribution to the site, and I wonder if anybody else had any opionion on it?

Well, it is a bit off topic. However my "personal" opinion for what it's worth is: -
"Lee Harvey Oswald! Where are you now your country needs you?"

comments contributed need not necessarily reflect those of my wife, or even me at any other time than now and especially not at half three in the morning when normally the state of my bladder is what I find most captivating

I'm just hoping no one notices what country I'm from until after 2008, at the least. That is, if we can get to 2008 with that nutcake president of mine.

Interesting answer. So why did he create atheists then?

Why would he create people who don't believe in him, only to send them to hell for not believing.

Is this further proof that God doesn't exist?

Quietly worried

I'm quite concerned about Guest he appears to be answering himself and even disagreeing openly with his previous comments!

I think that's the whole point, to demonstrate how silly this off-topic rubbish is.

As somebody said, if we can have a "Terrorists In The White House" forum on here, then we might as well have forums about anything. :mad:

"Another Guest", if you look at the description of the feedback forum, it says
Comment on this site; suggest improvements; be firm but polite.
Which is what everybody so far hs been doing, apart from the one poster whose insults have included the following...
So either you are'nt clever enough to understand this thread...which I have now simply explained to you...or are just another smart ass adding no value to anything..apart from the dubious value of being a smart ass
GROW UP. Maybe you just don't get the chance to whinge
; does your mommy know you're up this late?

The people who have posted to this thread seem to hold pretty much the same opinion as I do, and have stated their opinions in a mature and polite manner, apart from you who seems to think that ad hominem attacks against other members are an effective way of getting your point across. Believe me, they aren't.

Let me try to sum the situation up as I see it.

There are many things in this world more important than slot machines. In Africa, little brown babies die of starvation every day, for want of a meal which would cost less than a new ball for my allwin. In China, people are executed in public after a thirty-minute trial which would not satisfy even the most basic European requirements of justice. In the UK, terrified pensioners voluntarily go to prison in protest about Council Tax rises.

All of these things are worthy of discussion. But not here. This is a forum about slot machines. "Terrorists in the White House" is a subject which is not even worthy of a post here, and yet it has a whole forum of its own. Not only that, but it is the first forum a visitor will open, before nodding his head slowly, saying "yeeeeesssss", and then moving quickly on.

Nobody- but nobody- is going to visit a site about slot machine preservation and say "Right, I'll just watch this 2 hours long and dreadful quality video by former Republican and LAPD narcotics detective Michael Ruppert about the WTC bombings before I ask how to unjam my one-armed bandit".

It is precisely because we care about this site and appreciate all of the work that has gone into it that we are so concerned about what is happening.

Hopefully, I will go to sleep tonight and when I wake up, this post, along with the entire thread and the "Terrorists in the White House" forum will simply have disappeared.

Just my thoughts!

And very good ones. The administrator's absence and lack of intervention in this continues to baffle me. Does anybody know if he's gone away or something? Has anybody seen him recently? Has his computer broken? Does he have strong views on American politics? Has somebody else hijacked the forum?

Questions questions.......... :?

Yes, but what has this got to do with slot machines?
