Liveline Thread (02/05/2012 to 25/07/2012)

Folks,

Once again, at the request of the Admins, we have had to close the current Liveline thread due to its size. The discussion on Liveline can now continue on this thread as and from May 2nd 2012 (but it will have to be transplanted to another thread again if/when a certain thread length is reached).

So carry on as normal... while remembering that Radio is a moderated forum, and the Liveline thread is not exempt from that - you're required to be civil and observe the rules as per the charter.

Thanks

Splinty

there's so much toxic cynicism in the last thread, it should be sent to Sellafield for safe disposal.

In before the (inevitable) lock

The last thread took 3 months to get locked at 600-odd pages, the previous one took 4 months with 1200-odd pages, the one prior to that took 2.5 years ending with 2600-odd pages.

Any bets on this one lasting about 6 weeks with 300 pages (to continue a trend ?

Just curious - what's the vbulletin criteria for a thread being too big? - the total size of the posts rather than the number of posts?

Hello Lahhvlahn thread #4.

To celebrate the newest thread, Joe has decided todays topics will be:

How Joe found a cure for Cancer with Ippy.

Joe discovers that Jesus was, in fact, a Kat-i-lick just like him.

Priests..........loadza priests and their groupies.

And finally......Are Australians rude when speaking to self-absorbed overpaid broadcasters?

..........g'day Skip!

Genuflect, get out the nipple-clamps and pray for all concerned, especially the clergy of course .....then talk about something unrelated, such as his one-man campaign to cure melanoma at €85,000 a pop/per annum. Mentioned by Inda today in the Dail so he's hardly going to let that one slip by.

Good interview by Tommie O'Gorman btw, was half expecting Brady to say "I was only following (holy) orders" - he may as well have.

Mind you, it's the hot topic of the day, maybe Holy Joe might have no option but to allow a few plebs on. After all, he has an army of ould biddies on speed-dial at this stage ready to defend Mudder Church no matter what.

Yesterday was the proof of the pudding for that one.
