    It sounds like they mixed us up with bebo. I guess as the Mirror, it's all they know.

    They listed 50 sites in non chronilogical order split into catagories.

    Boards.ie
    Large bulletin boards for people who have nothing better to do with their lives. Something like that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,437 ✭✭✭Crucifix


    Nothing better to do? Is there anything better to be doing I ask you.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 28,128 ✭✭✭✭Mossy Monk

    Nothing better to do than avoid the other time wasting activities which people engage in such as going to the coffee corner for longer breaks, taking extra long ciggy breaks, knocking off early, ...... boards people just utilise time differently.

    Oh no, wait, we are all just a bunch of nerds :mad:

    i think the journalist may have been banned at some point.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,628 ✭✭✭Asok


    Well it is the Mirror so is Journalist really an accurate name for those that write for them? :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,611 ✭✭✭Blackjack


    Beats reading the mirror.

    Although I suppose, the mirror does have some uses. You can wipe your arse with it if you're really stuck, and were perhaps left with only it or the Indo as options.

    Lol.... thats exactly what I was thinking.

    God help us if The Mirror starts to refer to us as a "crackin' great read and a lovely pair of jubblies on forum 3 , eh lads!?"

    This from a "journalist" that spent time (we assume) visiting 50 of those sites and applying his/her own random analysis techniques to determine the "coolest" sites.

    This hack should spend more time on the Creative Writing and Literature forums.

    My top 1 of websites around the world goes like this:

    1: www.irishmirror.ie

    It's probably the coolest website ever.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,478 ✭✭✭GoneShootin


    It's so cool that it jumps to .co.uk. That's cool!

    Heh, the description for bebo reads "want to know what your kids are doing when your not looking".

    Don't read the reviews - weight them!

    Boards would have been lucky to get a mention in any such random survey a year ago now we're teh talk of the law library.
