The quality of pre owned stuff has gone up a lot in the past few years, dog eared manuals and covers covered in god only knows what seem to be dying off a little. Game do make me laugh though as they try a...

Only one issue with that statement - how is 'Hey its me' abusive I agree with banning constant offenders especially if they are just in there to annoy b...

Re: Is it just me or are posts getting fewer?
