Thanks Ady, 8-) I will be looking forward to checking out the new book. I read the article, and it looks fascinating.

Ooh, its the Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun. I actually got that for my brithday in May, but Ive yet to read it. Ill make a post on it after I get to it.
YEY! A legend from MY country! This is so great :P
Did anyone of you read it already? And if so what do you think of it?
I'm looking forward to reading this one...Big time!
[i:2z80md81]Praise not the day until evening has come, A sword until it is tried, A maiden until she is married, Ice until it has been crossed, Beer until it has been drunk!" [/i:2z80md81]- (Viking proverb) Yes - who could argue with Wisdom like that! (Here to help! <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> )
I find it very old fashioned - and quite sexist, frankly.
Indeed it seems so- at least he attempts to make a relevant comment before spamming his ad link! And his 'very informative' comment in another thread to a discussion on shrinking people gave me a laugh.
I think Mr Brahman is a spammy advertiser :?
Is brah gone? *phew* I reported one post from the LOTR forum but noticed he'd hit elsewhere as well. :x
Gone for good. I pulled out the Ban-Hammer. :mrgreen: [b:2unwytjo]GB[/b:2unwytjo]
Huzzah for the Banhammer! :mrgreen:
I borrowed it from Thor. <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> [b:3j2hwrhq]GB[/b:3j2hwrhq]
:lol:
You could have borrowed mine, I have 2, a 15 and a 10 Kg sledge.
Yeah but your hammers only squash Noom! GB's ban! Perhaps you could lend him a squashing one for particularly annoying spammers. :twisted:
Sir Eldorion is an excellent candidate for a right royal banhammering, I'd say. :ugeek:
Thor's ban-hammer is Sacred and not to be used lightly. <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> (I only use it on the unrespectable sorts <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> ) [b:a2qh2yhf]GB[/b:a2qh2yhf]
See, Odo? I [b:2pd3z10o]am[/b:2pd3z10o] respectable! <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />
[quote="Eldorion":3ez1xw93]See, Odo? I am respectable! [/quote:3ez1xw93] A matter of opinion, Eldo, no more, no less! :x
[quote="Odo Banks":39m3v9y9]A matter of opinion, Eldo, no more, no less! :x[/quote:39m3v9y9] More a matter of policy now that a [i:39m3v9y9]Moderator[/i:39m3v9y9] has weighed in. <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />
Maybe mods are like judges on the x-factor- you need 3 to pass. Tricky as we only regularly have 2.
Am I respectable O mighty mods? ~Ally
Indeed you are Ally. :mrgreen: By the way Petty, technically, as Durin only makes rare appearances these days, I am the ONLY regular Mod. <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> [b:173kn49d]GB[/b:173kn49d]
I just tend to call you [i:35ma9n9m]Princeps[/i:35ma9n9m] and let that be that. :P
[quote="Eldorion":32nwqh15]I just tend to call you Princeps and let that be that.[/quote:32nwqh15] How about [i:32nwqh15]Princess[/i:32nwqh15]? :ugeek:
'By the way Petty, technically, as Durin only makes rare appearances these days, I am the ONLY regular Mod.'-GB I was being generous to Durin GB. Best not upset a mod, not when they go about the place with a firm grip on their big ban hammers! :shock:
Rumour has it that GB does have a very firm grip. GB, do you sit around all day squeezing one of those stress-balls? If not, what do you squeeze so regularly to have such a strong grip?
Someone open a window... <img src='/images/smileys/sad.gif' border='0' alt='Sad Smilie' /> Wish I hadn't stumbled into this thread...

Clearly respectability is not a character of [i:97pnd2ud]all[/i:97pnd2ud] Bankses. :x
