Should this member be banned?

I'm speaking about Mark AKA Pandora on this forum...

Who does he think he is, posting great shots of somewhere warm, sunny and photogenic?

Not content with posting great photos of birds, landscape etc., he now feels it fitting to post images of a great looking pub in the sunshine?

I'm sorry, but it just isn't on.

It's time someone taught him some manners!

Heehee, it's certainly not cricket, especially as I look out the window and see dull, windy and rainy weather, not to mention how cold it is ;-)

It's dreich, drookit and bloody cold here. It must be nearly Spring though, as I've seen Hot Cross Buns reduced to clear in my local supermarket today!

I can't possibly comment on the cricket..

Ah yes, it is lovely & warm here (hot actually) west of Sydney but Mark is getting lots of rain right now & there is flash flooding in the north west of Victoria. You're welcome to come & enjoy our lovely weather in Australia, floods ( http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2...06/3131138.htm ), cyclones ( http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2...06/3131032.htm ), heat waves over forty degrees for more than a week (well for some of the days) & a bush fire or two waiting to happen ( http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2...06/3131022.htm ). It's great, come.

Actually Mark does put up some great shots. Well Janet, I guess someone has to set the bench mark.

We'll be thinking of you in front of your fire while we sweat it out here in our sunburnt country.

The right side of the hill, methinks?

As a Scot I can't comment on cricket... come to think of it I daren't comment on footy either, even tho' we are consistent.

Oh yes, Pandora does take exceedingly good piccies.

I was thinking the same thing the other day I'm sick of them shoving their lovely photographic weather down our throats, that bluddy Ross bloke is just as bad

I know he does, and I hope he takes this thread as the bit of fun it was intended to be!

Phew! I thought we had a serious problem for a minute!

I see what you mean, Janet, if he's going to behave like this Mark deserves to have his hands slapped. Shame we can't all visit the Ettamoogah pub and make him buy the beers!

BTW Janet, if posting great images was a reason to be banned you'd have gone ages ago!
