I'm semi-retiring from SW.
I'll be back to say hello to the good people I have met now and again but I don't enjoy this as much as I used to. Message me and I'll reply when I periodically pop back. All the best. ;-)

Do you miss some of the EP trolls?
I kind of do in a strange way. I used to find them funny. People are almost too nice and respectful on here. My typical EP interaction used to follow this pattern: 1) Post a question about something which people might not agree with. 2) Someone ang...

Does anyone remember RelateToThat? (R2T)
It was the most boring and low-tech site of all time. It was easier to get banned from there than it was to navigate.

Does anyone remember AnswerMug?
What was not to like? 😂 1) The irritating pac-man sound on the live chat. 2) The ultra-cliquey community of twenty people on the Live Chat. 3) The in-jokes bordering on a separate language that dominated live chat. 4) The lack of response to any que...

Is being book-smart underrated by society?
I hasten to add that I am not practically smart at all and there are many on EP much smarter than I. However, I do read and (no s**t Sherlock) I do have something of an interest in politics. Most people don't find these things that important tho...

How do I improve my social awkwardness?
I can hold down conversations with people and so on. I don't feel any conscious fear of social interaction but I am always aware of my conversational clumsiness. I end up half-offending people by accident and a lot of people I work with just do ...

Fidel Castro was bad, but was he worse than other dictators?
After Castro's death I am struck by the hypocrisy of both the left and the right. 1) The right poor scorn on the 'evil' communist, when they are (at best) nonchalant about their own Governments having far worse regimes as allies. 2) S...
