    Since I have been back here my copy of The Thirteen Clocks with the illustrations of my youth delayed maybe lost. My Drennan Hooks, 1.1 lb rather than 10lb. My Drennan 45g method feeder, ordered but suddenly unavailable, my size 10 Kaptur barbless, micro-barbed, my shelves were slightly knocked about, my bench is the wrong size and finally, today, my lamp with E27 fitting came with a B22 fitting.
    I don't care how hard the clique tries to beat me down I will keep up the good fight.

    Unbowed like a discarded violin?
    I have no idea what you're on about. Dare I use an emoji?

    There still is no clique. No. Clique. Not a clique. Cliqueless. Clique free. Do not clique here.

    Unbowed is pizzicato, I think. Or maybe just pizzed off. Or even pizzed :)

    I don't know for sure but I suspect it may have been confiscated following unacceptable use of the pole.;)

    Who is GENE then - referred to in posts? Cryptic between certain OPs? All very curious for those of us who are new.

    Que? There is so much here the is misinterpreted, so not sure an edit would make much difference? IMHO.

    In the olden days of TES, when I were just a green lurker, I seem to recall the late lamented ElaineC, ilovesooty and Lilyofthefield were referred to as The Unholy Trinity. Can a clique have only 3 members? If I were looking for a clique now (and obvs I'm not since most of its members are on my ignore list) I'd be going for the Trump-lov'n' good ol' boys and the posters who hope they come across as high Tory with its associations of wealth and privilege. You know who you are.
