One new member a day (not from the Pledged List) would be enough! (tu)

Number now 178 + wives, 8 = 186. 4 days to St M match x 4 = 16. total 202. And then there are the pledges!

Yes 4 a day under that formula - but we should expect 3 of those 4 to be from the Pledged List, and 1 a day needs to be NOT from the Pledged List.

I wish bluepeter would hurry up with the figures, then we can start talking about the money! :P

Doesn't answer the question though. Why do you obsess over our Fund, when you don't want to be a part of it?

Yes, you donated once.

That doesn't outweigh the animosity you've levelled towards me ever since though. That's done more harm than your tenner ever did good. :(

I didn't say what you could and could not read.

I asked why you have such an unhealthy appetite for it.

You say you're not a fan, so why do you read it so much? Am I being paranoid in thinking that you, and the other usual suspects are looking for an opportunity to use my posts against me in some way. Or is it genuinely that you just enjoy the thread so much?

No surprise seeing you here either.

Just the godfather now and it's business as usual.

BTW - It's considered bad form to post PMs that are not of an abusive or threatening nature.

What is egotistical about wanting a handful of trolls to leave me alone?

That's why I sent him a PM. But some people just seem determined to wreck the thread at any opportunity.

Tonight could be their lucky night. :pipe:

Is this a PM you've quoted? Why are you making it public?

If I have to clean this thread up one more time the fund is coming with me to Shawfield.

Behave.

Update:

We are currently running RangersTV tests in Hollybush House (Combat Stress)

As soon as the tests are passed, we will arrange for a Year's Subscription.

That's going to brighten up their Sunday afternoons for sure! (tu)

For a little amount of money, a mountain of good is done. This is a good way to spend on Rangers and give fellow bears something back. Good thread and a good man doing all this.
