Boo hoo - where are my runs?

All these years of careful banking -- and the bank goes bust? Were they being invested in Lehman?

It is to keep you humble (by reminding you that you have none)  ;D

reputation power

kban=5
blwe=2
dex=1
WN=1
inoc=1
SSL=1
JFK=0

we, the minions of the DG, have 0. or is this the number of times one has had dinner with the mods?

in addition, there is a red/green rectangle - some have red, some have green.

also where are the thumbs up and down? i need to TD quite a few posts on the religion threads.

methinks it is all very very fishy!  :nono:  :nono:

Since the thread is now on the main board (moved from the feedback section where I started it) I think I should point out that this was entirely light-hearted.

The "related threads" feature is rather non-intelligent and can be removed.

Actually it is a nice idea if it can be put together properly (maybe it will work out well in the end) ... but take this thread for instance .. related threads include:

4 yr boy runs 65 km in 7.02 hrs (non cricket)

&

who will get 200 runs in an ODI?

it is obviously doing a simple string search on the title and so can't expect much intelligence. coming to think of it, it seems to be the same logic employed by the guy who equated ramadan with rama.

The bail out package got thrown out of the window ... DG will end up better...

W/o the ignore button, I am still able to ignore a few posts... call it determination,pass thru'...whatever. EoD,it works  :)
