I'm talking about ChrisElston[^]He was one of the funniest people on here, but his account seems to have gone. I hope you lot haven't got rid of him with your over-zealousness on the report button.
Back in the day the uni-voter was referred to as having a small penis, nowadays it seems normal to report people for trivialities. The Americans have already all gone, Pompeyboy3, and now Chris Elston amongst others. You lot are making this place a poorer place than it use to be.
Are you sure you don't mean http://www.codeproject.com/Members/chris-elston[^]? In all seriousness, anyone who is thrown off because of over zealous, or plain vindictive, downvoters has the right of appeal, and if allowed, Chris will reinstate their account.
I had to take some stuff[tm] over to my parents. On the way, by pure chance, I met my Dad as he walked home and we were about to pass the pub when he suggested a glass.
Now, the Dad Rules state [Section 3.2.4 - Dad's Always Buy] that being a father it is my responsibility to buy. But my father is also a Dad, well he would have to be, so he has to buy. Splitting the bill is something only other people do. So I bought the drinks.
This placed Dad in the awkward position of being a Drink Down. So he did what all Dad's must do a bought another round. This'll never work, he's bought me a beer so I must reciprocate and my reciprocation will no doubt be reciprocated.
