Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

What effect will it have on ET's overall image?

We've got an open thread with pictures of stilletto races and crop circles, and you think astrology is the only thing that's gonna make people question our reputation?

The question is not the discussion in this thread, it's whether astrology os a serious future subject for ET.

You sound like you enjoy picking fights with front-pagers. Do you?

oh the front pagers.  excuuuuse me.  I didn't realize there were two classes of people here.n  I think that must be one of the most arrogant comments I have ever read on any blog.  

as for your question, the answer is no.  I doubt I will ever pick a fight with Bob or Fran.

and stiletto race heels are fun and there's nothing wrong with them

it's very paternalistic to be cherry picking topics like this and deciding which are ok and which are "not good for our reputation"

a very good way to hurt people's feelings and lose contributors

I also apologize for the comments about the discussion about drugs.  If anyone wants to talk about that, I am not the arbiter of good taste, and it's as valid as anything I have to say.  I was lashing out and that's not right.  

men shaving their privates on the other hand ....

and nothing wrong with crop circles either.

Definitely not (and to ThatBritGuy, I wasn't trying to go after you or your crop circle photo either).

Hi people, I love you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So could you please exhale deeply and then count to ten. :-)

I lkove it, when people love to disagree - but I think we had enough. In the end we are just a big ET family! and I guess there are disagreements in every family.

And I hope your statement about not picking a fight with me holds true, mmmmm. :-)

Oh, and lychee this comment is not for you personally, I think it just fits in well in this place. :-)

of course.  your name holds a lot of weight with me.

you would never judge people that way either.

We all love you too Fran!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you didn't think the comment about stilletto races was directed at you, either-- I was just using it as an example.
