I have a lot of faith in naivety. It may become my drug of
preference. When I'm on it I start to believe that I can say what I
want without being deluged by tons of bricks. Being lightly stoned on
that special occasion is another matter. If the only way to protect
freedom of speech is to say nowt, my Internet subscription's worthless.

I don't know if it was naivety or keen perceptiveness that caused
you to invoke the Bogey-Man recently, but it certainly brought
a response from several of the silent majority of TWC-L
subscribers. They went that-a-way ------>.

Come to think of it, it probably is safer discussing knitting
patterns and origami.

This could make TWC more popular than Butlins!

Dunno but it sounds like a great idea. D'you think they've got
any exotic recipes?

Perhaps amphetamines would help after all.

I'm sure that when the TWC is given the level of credence it
deserves, the quality and quantity will rise to the occasion.

Remember the pilchards and chapatis?
