The Ryder Cup tees off later this week…

Am not usually interested in the golf - though this tournament is a little different as it’s a team competition; with the US taking on Europe - and usually serves up some great golf, tension, atmosphere and finale.

This time around it’s being played at the ‘Le Golf National’ course in Paris, France - from the 28th to the 30th September.

^ Re Peter Davidson - it’s surely the wearing of the celery too? Even for the 80’s that was a bold move wearing a celery stalk on his lapel 😃
 

(Quality post, Puggo. Capaldi is my favourite since Ecclestone’s short term, though I do wish he’d had better writing for some of his tenure - or at least more stories focusing on him.)

In that case, I apologize. Next you may want to it more clear what it is you are talking about.

Next time try reading what is posted - before replying.

(other sites)

I make my posts pretty clear, and if anyone has an issue with them they are always welcome to ask questions or talk about them with me (or even PM me) - this is a discussion forum after all. Though I don’t really appreciate being cast with incorrect aspersions (not many people do at all, I imagine).

Though I accept your apology - even with whatever you wrote after it as some sort of redundant caveat / excuse as to why you wrongfully (and seemingly narcissistically) read into and then posted what you did - despite my already stating it was not about anything on here.

Cheers.

Hypocrites. Man, they can do your head in at times. Thankfully best avoided and ignored - and thanks to the ability to leave PM threads (other sites) where slating others behind their backs is seemingly the main purpose - a godsend.
 

Either explain what you mean by calling me a hypocrite or stop it. This is the second time you’ve done that.

The threads behind your back were a direct result of your forum moderation. If people didn’t fear repercussions like getting
temp or perm banned, the discussions could have been had with you face to face.

As stated - not on about here.

If I have something to say to you I’ll come out and say it - I’ll leave making snide comments to others whose MO that is.
 

Any questions or issues re arising from ‘forum moderation’ were answered at the time - and, if I recall correctly, nothing was followed up to after Jay & my replies at the time.

As stated to before, if anyone had issues with me they were/are always free to PM me.

I’ll leave the conversation there - as it wasn’t about you (or anything to do with this site) in the first place - though am not surprised you tried to make it so.

I’ve considered watching Dr. Who. I have no idea where to start. Can someone point me in the right direction? Should I just watch the best episodes to see if I like the concept? Should I start with a certain series? Does it matter? I’d like to know because I think it’s daunting.

If you have the time mate (and patience)… I’d opt to start with the 1st of the new seasons - 2005 with Ecclestone as The Doctor - only 178 episodes and some Christmas Specials to go 😉

‘Every consequence. Every key stroke. Everything has led to this. The final season of #MrRobot arrives in 2019. http://www.usanetwork.com/mrrobot/blog/mr-robot-season-4-announcement

https://twitter.com/whoismrrobot/status/1035153724396773376

 

A shame that - though it could run for another 2-3 seasons quite easily (from the story perspective). Though at least it’ll go out on it’s own terms, and have a proper ending - which is denied for many other shows. Roll on 2019.
