First I must clear up a misunderstanding. Transexuals are very trustworthy. We know who we are, unafraid of who we are, see both sides of every argument, and hate dishonesty, full stop.
Now, moving on ----- I am fond of the Rushock Bog Bankses, but the Baron is right about one thing, they [i:lifd1cv9]are [/i:lifd1cv9]from Rushock Bog (you must think that fact out, Petty Tyrant 101). And I think it wise they stay in their small self-created world of Howdy. If one wants to visit them there (or send a missive) one can still do so. Yiou must think of them now as being like fish in a fishbowl. Visit them if you wish - ignore them if that is your decision. This way their friends, half-friends and non-friends can deal with them as they wish. They'll be happy amongst themselves if it comes to that. For are they not at heart rustic honest folk? They know who they can trust, and know they can rely on each other. Fear not for them, but visit them if you wish. I'm sure all the recent angst over them, and scurrilous comments about them, have weighed them down sufficiently without them feeling obliged to brave the cruel Broader Forum World again. Not for awhile, at least. They feel besmirched, you see.
Petty Tyrant 101, you must think of me as their respresentative - but don't ask me to excuse them. I am, after all, a Bywater Banks and must remain true to my class.
Baron, say what you wish about me, but know I am utterly trustworthy in both my aspects! We tranhobbits have enough trouble being accepted without people doubting our word or credentials.
As to Biffo being a candidate for Knighthood, Baron - that is indeed a surpring concept!
