    Seems like a taboo subject.
    And well, if that happens, then, what was the point?
    I can't say you'd like what I have to say.
    But this forum seems like a place for me to talk about 'the war'. :lol:

    You join a ww2 forum because you can't talk about WW2? Over 700,000 WW2 related posts here say otherwise. Not to me tion your first post gas nothing to do with "the war".

    We are very open minded here. If you are preparing us for your impending posts, obviously your previous posting experience has led you to expect people won't like what you have to say.

    With your incredibly hilarious (and original handle), along with the cryptic "wait for it" first post it appears you are testing the waters of trolldom. I hope not and always welcome good content, but I'm just as happy to remove people who's intent is to cause problems.

    I'm with Von Poop on this one. He must have been referencing Basil.

    Too mind blowing to think about if he wasn't

    Well the fact that Ben, obviously, is not from Dover, makes me very sceptical!

    "Ben" made some follow up posts that appear quite legitimate, evidently I was a bit jumpy on the trigger. I've seen that Fawlty Towers bit, but didn't make the connection. Apologies on the cold greeting Ben. Welcome to the site!

    If Ben has something to say about the facts of WW2 that would be most novel given some of the postings on here which show some to be away with the fairies when it comes to "what ifs". Lets get real.

    Come on Ben post up. Brian

    Well sorry, I don't think I am overly suspicious, but the word "Butt hurt" in the name of the thread, the word "Taboo" in the first post, all posted by a guy who calls himself "Ben Dover" makes an air raid siren go off in my head! The "Ben Dover" - "Bend Over" was obvious and even if I had never heard about "Ben Dover"google had! Don't choose a porn star's name as username and people won't give Troll alarm!

    no Skip, as post #9, he's chosen the wrong handle and that obviously undermines his credibility straight away..expecting the worst

    I mean that.

    Ben Dover isn't my real name (shocker)... I am Robert Burrows, a.k.a Bobby Burrows on FB, so... Bob's okay too.
