Congratulations to who-ever made the log monsters by the second bridge on the old railway line behind Malling. They are BRILLIANT!!! and were indeed a really pleasant surprise this morning. It was nice to actually see some creativity as opposed to vandalism and destruction for a change.
I'd recommend anybody if you get a chance to take a wander up the old railway line to check them out before some moronic pleb destroys them.

Maybe these "moronic plebs" are just priory school leavers being "rebellious" and we should let them smash these log monsters up as it's just a way of these rebels expressing themselves.

Can't quite believe Priory parent is dissing and labelling possible vandals before it's even happened !! Or were you being subtly ironic ?

'dissing'? don't you think you're a bit old for that dear? You probably think you're hip and trendy when you 'get down wiv the kids'. I remember we had teachers like you at school, we laughed like drains behind thear backs.

Have you not realised the rules of the Lewes forum yet me?
1. Always, always correct everyone's misspellings whether or not intentional.
2. Always, always derive some sort of negative from any positive post.
3. Always, always find a way to include subjects of other posts in any new post that arrives on the forum.
4. Always, always hold a personal vendetta against any person that disagrees with you at least once.
5. Always, always be sarcastic - this being the most important of them all.
Feel free to add.
By the way, have not seen these Log Monsters but they sound brilliant.

You have forgotten the race card. Surely if you disagree with someone, somewhere down the line you are clearly a rascist/daily mail reader/ landport moron etc etc etc etc etc. And my personal favourite, when upset by someones elses' post, DO NOT under any circumstances ignore it. Leave the forum with a 50 word dramatic essay like your dying in an overproduced bbc costume drama ending with goodbye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Sense of humour bypass is also essential

It makes you laugh really some of the things that school kids say. 'Filled of (with?) hatred' !!! where on earth does that come from unless from the mind of someone with a complex or a guilty conscience ? Bring back corporal punishment I say, it didn't do our generation any harm, and you certainly would not have dared to let off a smoke bomb in front of a teacher.

Whacko, you say that corporal punishment never did any harm?
Well you didn't become a "better person" from it, you still turned out to be a horrible old c*nt.

What a pathetic response from 'A Normal Person'. What do you know about the sort of person I am, and what effect the existence of corporal punishment had on me? Nothing at all is the answer, you are just an abusive idiot with a bit more growing up to do. I certainly grew up into the sort of person with a bit more respect for both myself and others to use your type of language on a public forum. Are you really trying to suggest that the entire population of this country born before the mid 60's (62 for me Clifford) is in some way a worse person because of corporal punishment ? In my day we indulged in exuberant behaviour of course, but we all knew where the line was drawn, and didn't start crying about our right to express ourselves when we crossed it. Its all about respect for others really. You show people respect and you earn theirs, you disrespect others and you have no right to complain when you don't like the consequences.

I ensured corporal punishment at school. While it didn't do my any harm it certainly didn't do me any good. Most of the people who inflicted it were simply sadists who did it for their own pleasure. We learn to despise them, not respect them. The teachers I remember with respect are the ones who could set an example and keep discipline by force of their own personality. The others were just bullies and nine times out of ten were also useless teachers.

I'd just like to point out that:
- I consider myself a reasonably responsible member of society these days.
- I experienced corporal punishment at school.
- On my last day at school, in sixth form, we put bread in the lockers, poured yoghurt on it and Araldited the doors shut. By all accounts, when the school came back after the summer, they had the Creature From The Black Lagoon growing rampant and the stench was unbearable.
My conclusions have been that:
- Kids are kids. What goes around comes around and they're not getting markedly 'worse'. Not in Lewes anyway. If there's ever a drive-by at Charcy's I might change my mind.
- Corporal punishment doesn't deter anyone from anything.

We will have to agree to differ on whether corporal punishment acts as a deterrent D&O, but the difference is, if you had been caught with your bread and yoghurt I am sure you would have known that what you had done was wrong and taken the consequences, instead of bleating on about your 'right to express yourself' and being amazed that anyone should have the temerity to be at all inconvenienced by it.
That is what is wrong nowadays, and that attitude goes on beyond school into adult life. So many people think they can do exactly what they like, but if anyone does anything remotely against them, they plead the victim and start to look for compensation.

A friend of mine revealed a while ago that their idea of fun as teenagers was to go up on the golf course and take a dump in the holes!
He's 50-ish, so was probably beaten at school.

To 'Get Real, Dear' - 'Dissing' came into common usage about 15-20 years ago after entering the lexicon in the early 1980's via hip hop. It's been part of my vocabulary since I was a student in the 80's and is now part of everyday language in many communities amongst many age groups. Maybe you need to brush up on your etymology, GRD. Using the word 'dissing' is not an indicator of trying to be 'hip and trendy' at all as it's been in wide use for more than two decades. Maybe it's you, GRD, who is showing their age or lack of wide experience of life ? Has the word 'dissing' only just entered your limited vocabulary and it is in fact, you, who thinks it is 'hip and trendy' ?
