Hey mate can I just say something while i'm hurting a bit. I don't really spend a massive amount of time online, when I logon to a computer I usually only check Facebook, mostly to see what my relatives overseas are up to, or I come onto the GH. At times when everything is negative I don't like a lot of things about this place but for the most part I enjoy it even if we are losing. I've said to my Wife before, the GH is my online family, my community. I can talk about anything on here even if it isn't footy and i've met some brilliant people through this website, including yourself. I'm glad I found this place, and i'm very thankful that yourself especially keeps a place like this alive. There are a lot of people on this website that i've never met in person, but due to what you and others have done I feel supported during a really bad time. Don't ever undersell what this place can do for a person, or the Canberra Raiders can do for us all. It might be a really bad time for me but the Canberra Raiders and their fans have made me feel a lot better. There are a lot of things wrong with this club but i'm thankful i'm a part of it.

Woodgers, gutted for you. Hope you'll be OK.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

In light of recent events, I thought this was pretty cool to see from a post 5 years ago.

Previously unknown facts about ourselves

Post by Fuifui Bradbrad »

Haha I was never really into bikes. I have a bucket list of driving anything with wheels I can get my hands on. Did Motocross as a kid, but it never caught on.

When I get back from hols, I might do a call out and see if there's any GH members interested in a Go Kart sesh. A GH social. Luddenham is great, a reasonably new track, just got Paintball set up as well. Huburtus Country Club is just around the corner for post race drinks.

dubby wrote:I feel prompted to share a bit more about myself having read some really great stuff about you blokes.

. My mum was only 16 when she gave birth to me. As a single mum we put up with some crap from the narrow minded persona of small town country folk back in the 70s. Needless to say mum and I are very close. I have a very special place in my heart for young single mums and their kids. I know what its like to be poor and to feel different. I try and do whatever I can when I can to help them.

. Met my dad in 2005. One of the best moments of my life. Suddenly I made sense; I had his looks (poor bastard), personality and so much more.

. I am very introverted and private. I hate loud neighbours and people who impose their sense of a good time on me. I'm almost reclusive.

. I think I'm the most boring person in the world. But I couldn't care less. I love to read, talk to my mates, watch the Raiders and play Xbox. The best times I've had revolve around those things, not adrenaline laced activity. Well, I do love V8s and fast go karts!

. Its unlikely my wife and I will have children. Our heart is more towards helping others and hopefully being a mentor.

. I have considered Chaplaincy as a career. Once again, its for the kids who have rough lives at home.

. I take a great interest in people and their behaviour. It fascinates me. I love watching Forensic Files, CSI Australia and trying to understand peoples motivations, behaviour and finding out their lifes story. It intrigues me to learn what makes people do what they do.

. I have a serious nature. Analytical and deep thinking. It does my head in at times and it makes me intense. This turns people off me if they don't know me. I love deep discussion, I despise gossip.

. I think my best trait is my loyalty. Like woodgers, I would do anything for a mate or family member. If you are a mate of dubby, you are a mate for life.

. I am Christian guy. This isolates me from people and I'm used to the :shock: face people give me when they find that out. Its usually followed by something like a :doubt: face followed by a :thumbsdown then a :hi

Thanks Albi, I've bared my soul on an open forum. :( Image

(and I am a mad Stephen King fan. I have bloody heaps of his books at home. my favourits are The Stand, Under the Dome and Blaze.)

Honestly, I read these points and thought "Yeah, me too." The Analytical part is great at work, but I struggle to turn it off at home.

Oh and I'm loving Dark Tower

Another bump on this one, just to say congrats. It’s not very often you see someone’s trajectory play out like this. It’s pretty damn cool.

It's truly remarkable to see a dude have a dream and acheive it
I remember after knowing for very little time, remarking to my wife that there was no doubt in my mind he'd be mayor of QBN one day. I've never known a man love a place like KW loves QBN. QBN couldnt have a mayor more passionate about the region.

I remember saying to Donald Trump in 1984 “I reckon there’s a better chance that KW will be the mayor of Queanbeyan before you become President”.

How wrong could I be.

Restocking this thread, inspired by Q’s forklift chat.

Not sure if I mentioned this fact about myself, but when I moved to Sydney at 18, I moved into what was sold to me as a boarding house in Blacktown. Turned out to be a halfway house for freshly released ex-cons. Was an eye opener for a relatively naive country kid, but interesting.
