    Murray - most of the Irish posters are on the Irish Beekeepers Facebook site now. The old Yahoo site has pretty much died a death.
    Lol...never been on facebook...really fear that could turn into a time eater.

    The time I was involved on Irish stuff, and that was as a result of being invited to go there by a guy I was corresponding with, was in the days of the Irish List. I don't know if it even still exists.

    Once it was swamped by the small cell theorists and FGMO evangelists it was time to go.

    One of my fellow moderators on Bee-L at the time quoted something very wise to me (no idea where the original quote came from) which was something like this.....'Never mud wrestle with a pig....you can't win and besides,...the pig rather enjoys it.'

    I quite enjoyed the occasional sparring with Dee Lusby and Ruth Rosin! [small cell and the dance language 'controversy' respectively] Maybe that makes me a pig. As Jon said it has died a death with perhaps one post a year. Ruth in particular was good fun. Those debates taught me a lot about human nature.

    That face-book page is a dangerous place, I have to pick my fights or should I say the timing, a little subtle barb brings them out. its the people in the audience that are more dangerous I think the kids refer to them as stalkers, I think they are all members of where the wherethefockarwe tribe.
    A work colleague described them to me as people in a dark continent who run in the long grass and every now and then jump up and ask where the F~~ck are we. I like that quote above.

    One of the better click-bait funny sites offered this as a metaphor for internet bickering.
