    I'm also blocking a few users for the just the weekend. No time to clean up / moderate.

    Those who need to vent / opinionate / pontificate -> reddit.com is seriously worth checking out, far larger audience for you.
    I feel your pain Shri. Sick to death of the Trump& Clinton& quagmire mudwrestling saga of an election that has wiped out all of my FB feed this past month. Logging off. Hope you get the chance to, too Shri. Leonard Cohen chose the right time to rest (in peace).

    I also feel Shri's pain. We were on the single malt until that was finished then moved onto Jack Daniel's Sinatra. That is a seriously good whiskey.

    My first taste of Sinatra, after the Scotch single malt the first impression was slightly rough but boy the after taste is sublime. Very expensive but worth it if you love your whisk(e)y.

    Your Texan mate has superb taste in upper shelf liqueur ie the Jack Daniels Sinatra Centenary 100 proof centenary Tennessee whisky. which is around $500USD a bottle.

    I quite like their Gentlemen Jack range ( really easy to drink ) and their single barrel select Tennesee whisky. which is an awesome drop too.

    Must be a massive departure from drinking San Miguel

    He has a bigger selection of booze than most bars. He has nine different JDs for example. I have yet to ask for something he does not have - red and white ports, various liquers. Served with a selection of cheeses and pates. Only trouble is it is very hard to leave without being pissed, "try this and this and this....". Luckily it is only a hundred yards or so to my house.

    Back on topic, while you're at it, there's a date sorting issue when searching for some particular item/post.

    Search results aren't date sorted (even when selecting the Sort by date option), which renders it a little unusable.

    Can post a screenshot if you guys wish.

    Btw, should this have been a separate post? (Didn't want to interrupt the quiet time) :P

    @Apjace can you email the screenshot to [email protected]. So we don't end up chasing two different things, Thanks. .

    @shri-do you think that we could have a little "quiet time" introduced on a daily basis?

    For example "quietening" certain posters between the hours of 9am and 6pm weekdays.
