    It is interesting that Personal is so like that other former forum that must not be mentioned, while all the former alleged fluffiies appear to have migrated to entertainment; are they hiding anywhere else or have they been annihilated?

    Just asking.

    I would need to know who they were before I can tell you where they are.

    Fair point, guess they would need to identify themselves if they are still here as I have become more than a little Dory... *my absence for a number of years may have contributed to that, although they used to show up in coffee shops, bars and the like as I do recall.

    Oooh and I do remember Drunkern Fool and OFGS they were a lot of fun.

    'tis true.
    I was only thinking to myself how nu-Personal lacks the fluffiness of old Personal, and is more like 'the-forum-that -be-named-but-was-deleted-in-nu-TES-and-began-with-an-O'

    There are sporadic attempts to reignite the fluffiness. With cats.

    Oh, music is popular. And there's a little art.

    But I fear I was much more of a regular on The Forum Formerly Known As Er Um You Know I Can't Say It than I ever was on Personal. So I suppose I'm an interloper.

    The two you mention? They ring no bells for me. I fear I am a Spanish bluebell or a grey squirrel and have put the native fluffies to rout.

    Mea maxima culpa.

    Well as life moves on people do come and go, I came and went then came back again; real life must take a priority. I used to enjoy a bit of fluffy and the only TES meet I went to was full of them; it was interesting and actually not nearly as fluffy as I thought. I met some nice people and keep in touch with one or two... alas that was a different stage in my life and like I said things change.

    I wouldn't hope to hold anyone to account for lack of fluffies or fluffiness GDW; like life *in education at least perhaps things just aren't as enjoyable as they once were. Dreadful shame in my view as it used to lighten the load and surely many teachers could do with that more than ever... perhaps I just need to revisit the Entertainment thread and search for humour and cafes!

    Maybe if topics that spawn multiple threads were instead boiled down into one thread then it'd make for a different atmosphere.

    At times there can be 5 or 6 EU threads [and I'm guilty of starting a few] on page 1... just have one EU thread and all other threads are merged into that... the US election thread has been able to keep from spreading... only about 5 or 6 of us actually interested. Most other posters just leave it alone.

    Or... bring back the forum that cannot be named?

    No bit too radical...

    One of the options should have been "who gives a damn?"

    I like the upstanding *****, it looks quite opinionated and may well have more valid views than so many people. How can a little fluffy (perhaps with photoshop) bring so much joy?

    Ooooh she/he does look very serious, in a psychotic criminal way. Shall we grade his grammar?

    Oops just realised that after I called the cat a psychotic criminal I assumed it was a male... can't think why :oops:
