The Google Bot is fine

Google scan the site on a regular basis, as there are lots of new posts to index.

The new board software recognises is and lets us know when it is on the site.

I suspected it was one of those computer generated things to try and sell stuff. A bit like those silent phone calls - I got loads of them last week despite the fact I'm ex directory :twisted:

If you are ex- directory Archie,those calls are coming in from abroad,random computer generated nos are dialled,some people answer after a quiet pause,then some fall for the b******t, a tip i heard was to press the hash# key quickly 6 or 7 times,apparently it mucks the call up at thier end! shame eh? :twisted:

Maybee these calls are from Rangers trying to raise a few quid. About 50 Million I believe.

Do you think so ?

I hope they both survive, but not sure why Celtic would also be doomed.

Apologies to the rest of the SPL but,"The old firm" games are the big ones!
Celtic v Hibs or Hearts does not have the same attraction(for tv audiences anyway) so the tv money will be even less than the paltry sum they get now.We all know what Celtic & Rangers think of each other,without the old enemy i think maybe either of 'em would suffer!

Steptoe is all about Self-fulfilling defeat

I think you may have misunderstood my meaning, I dunno.
What I meant to say is there's a good chance many Steptoe fans appreciate the show due to their empathy with the characters plight because they've lived it themselves. I know I have. And with incomes dropping like a lead weight, maybe those folks we miss can't afford to return.
I should have been clearer, my bad :oops:

People correctly moan about social media and all its trappings, but...
10 years is astonishing, quite a feat!
A Very Happy Birthday to this website, and Cheers Bob.
That Steptoe is the best sitcom ever is inarguable.
Tip of the hat to the Appreciation Society and Steptoe fans everywhere :o.

10 Years Old! Happy Birthday to this website!

I agree it should've been asked Does it Kick Arse, or Aris (that part that fills up the back of your trousers) as the duo would say!

I've only been here less than a year but its a Great site and I have been made very welcome.

"And mind them Gloves!"

If this site didn't kick ass, I wouldn't have joined. And the ones who say it doesn't, have a cheek, two in fact, and I wanna kick them both. (P/S) Belated Birthday wishes too. :wink:
