    I posted in my thread reply by mail and waited for a week to see it added only to get a letter back from the mods with a card and saying the reply has been binned as it doesn't meet their standards.
    I've lost two weeks waiting to make my point, isn't there a better way?

    When you join boards you will be allocated a carrier pigeon.

    But he also killed the man who killed Hitler so it balances out.




  • How many pounds, shilling and pence are those 2RN presenters on? It’s a disgrace.
    Defo on LSD

  • Complaints that there's nothing good on the radio.




  • Some people on here clearly would be supportive of Hitler.




  • How far do these motor cars go before you have to put "fuel" in them anyway? A lad I know said this "fuel" is actually explosive - only a matter of time before we have cars exploding in the street. I'll stick to my horse thanks




  • Colour in films ?

    Passing fad like 3D tellies nowadays.




  • jaysus, the shops are cleaned out of toilet roll, fecken horders

    Only if you're a subscriber.

    Lot of anger here.

    Almost invariably men.

    In 1939 of course it would men.
    You think womenfolk would be allowed? What are you, a communist?




  • DDT sales soar, pesky insects a thing of the past




  • The American are lying. The WAR OF THE WORLDS radio broadcast was REAL.
    Please send stamped self addressed envelope and a postal order for 1 shilling to read REAL EYE WITNESS TESTIMONY.




  • Thunder and lightning final




  • Christmas was so much better before

    You have been banned

    Dear Kermit.de.frog,

    You have been banned from Boards permanently for ignoring a moderator's instructions.

    Discussion can become heated, we don't object to that, but when a moderator issues a warning on a thread to reign things in, it stops a heated discussion from turning into a mess.

    For more information please refer to your local parish priest and church for guidance or the Boards.ie "Myself and my Faith" Boards FAQ.

    If you wish to appeal this ban you can see details on how to do so here.

    The McQuaid

    Moderator Note

    you are banned, we don't accept such blasphemous behaviour here

  • There'll be a lot of Hail Marys for the one.

    Probably have to complete a Novena Grace to get that ban lifted.

    I heard Croke Pork are monitoring boards and posting on the association football, cricket or rugby thread gets you banned from the GAA. And I dont just mean the boards forum!




  • Radio Eireann is rubbish and not worth the licence fee.

    How often do have a bath?

    Laurel & Hardy, Marx Brothers & Charlie Chaplin are not funny.

  • That John Wayne won't have much of a career




  • :(

    A good Act of Contrition revokes a ban.

    Think a weekend in Lough Derg might be needed

  • Boards.ie 1939:

    "I got the trolley car out as far as Kingstown yesterday and there were inner-city street urchins eating apples they stole from the greengrocers. This would not be tolerated in any other society. We need a strong leader like that Adolf chap in Germany to clean the SCUM off our public thoroughfares."




  • The World has gone to sh1te, everything was so much better in the 1910s.
    The Golden Age Fallacy will be with us as long as we're human.




  • Young couples are being edged out if the market.
    Anecdotally we hear of daily commutes from Stillorgan and Raheny!

    Stillorgan? Jesus. It's so sad when you hear of people having to move down the country like that. I even know of one person who ended up having to buy a house in Cabinteely. They'll regret that when they're commuting for over half an hour every morning.




  • i reckon most views would have been pro-german, "hope they give dem brits a bloody nose bye!"




  • It's the summer of 1939. What topics and views are being expressed on Boards.ie?

    I wonder will that little moustache become fashionable in the next few years?
