Ivory Joe Hunter

No I hadn't heard of him either. He was an R&B singer of the fifties.

His #1 R&B hit of 1956 was "Since I Met You Baby."
It's a great, but very simple tune.
One of my all time favourite films is...

You mean you don't like people responding, when you've made an unnecessary remark to someone, who hasn't had a go at you in the first place?

Fair enough.

You aren't on your own.

Looking forward to that. I just hope neither of 'em will be made to do "anything daft and out of character," just to create a story-line. I'm not keen on it, when that sort of thing happens.

I see, adding a smart-arse remark as a response to a serious post, is your usual practice?

I'll bear that in mind for the future.

Hmm. It's the sort of response I'd expect. Check the threads, I don't start with the nit-picking.
Can you say the same?

Thought not, you've just done it.

Don't be silly, it's an accepted way of saying "arse" on a message board, as the word might offend some readers.

Are you new to all this?

I don't think saying what you think of a programme provider gives anyone an "over-inflated sense of importance."

Of course it gives them the right to criticise.
