    Today I have just become a Great Uncle for a second time :) And this is the same niece who had a August 2018 from hell.

    And within the next 5 weeks I will become a Great uncle for the Third Time as my Eldest Nephew's Wife is due within that time... ;)

    so we had the SSPCA (animal care police) round today. again.
    at least once or twice a year one of our arsehole neighbours calls them about some made-up thing.
    and they come round, and they look around, and we chat.
    and then they go away unhappy that their time has been wasted by arsehole people who have too much time on their hands, or whatever motivates those dicks to keep calling.

    I am so fed up of this village, it’s populated by petty, small minded arseholes.

    another example; the other local shop is a lot quieter than the main shop with the Post Office, for obvious reasons.
    the people in the quiet shop sometimes post stuff up on FB, presumably when they’re quiet & bored.
    one unseasonably hot day they posted a silly interweb video of a monkey eating an ice cream.

    a week later they had to issue a plea on the village FB group page begging people to stop reporting them to the health & safety peoples, cos they’d had inspectors round 3 times.
    who’s calling the health police on them for an obvious web vid and WHY ffs?!?

    dicks :mad:

    another 3 years or so I think I’ll be able to afford to think about moving
    can’t come soon enough


    tl:dr ? my neighbours are dicks

    I don't know if I've ever mentioned this, but the worst complaint that I have is that the next door neighbours are really heavy smokers. You wouldn't think it would be too bad (I thought gran was too sensitive when she stopped using the balcony altogether ages ago), but it really is (and I grew up with a smoking father, so I'm not super sensitive, although I've always disliked the stuff).

    Like I've said, they are heavy smokers, so, if you bump into them, 4 out of 5 times they have a cigarette lit, plus I think it has to be some really awful stuff, so if you walk by their front door you can smell the smoke and, importantly, if they are ventilating or come out on the balcony (which is adjacent to ours), we pretty much can't use our own or have a window open. And they sit on the balcony almost every night unless it's really cold. Also, if I get up early and try to get some fresh air, they are like clockwork and at 7:30 there will be stench getting into my living room. I'm scared to think what it's like in their apartment.

    Other than that, they are nice people and, while my grandparents lived here and as they got really old, the neighbours were around to give a helping hand a few times (which gave us some additional peace of mind) and they never complained when grandpa blasted TV at full volume (for which we'd always apologise), so it's hard to hold anything against them, but it's also hard not to get pissed off (we had dinner on the balcony a grand total of 1 times over the last 2 years and that was when the better half was still not used to them and loudly said "What's with the stench?!" when she got out on the balcony, not realising that it was them and that they were sitting less than 2 meters away from us, because they had the lights off and there's a stained glass panel between us, so they picked up and went in).

    hmm, not sure what he was going with on that but this is google's translation of it. "Is the Pacific ultrasound clinic successful?" lol not really sure if that's correct or not but I didn't see anything above that to this pointed to? o_O

    He is referring to the latest Bot posting..

    And I have lost count on how many Usernames I have banned over the last few months.. These Bots all started off using the Homepage option..

    Looks like it has evolved to actually being able to create a new threads...

    At that moment, the boards were flooded with threads titled some variation of that and when I looked at the New Posts it was like a mantra being repeated over and over, so I copy-pasted one of the titles to this thread. I thought it qualified as random. MIG (I assume, because who else) seems to keep the spam in check, though.

    Thanks, you guessed it correctly..

    Tyrsonswood has reported a couple over the last few days, And I am on it as quick as I can.. Its good to have the option to select the user to be Banned + All posts deleted with only two or three clicks of the mouse button.

    I tend to report them when I see them, but this morning there were several but with different user names. I only reported one of them hoping you would find the others. Multiple reports is like me spamming your email... Which is something I try not to do.

    I've been a mod in the past, waking up in the morning to 100 emails about a spammer, all from the same guy, about the same spammer... It's like "Dammit.. I do, on occasion, need to sleep, dude!"
