Re: Bank security codes

I can't honestly remember the last time I used my generator. Perhaps NBG are now catching up?

I've been using OTP via SMS with NBG for the last 2 years

Re: Postal charges

Does anybody know if cost of postage has increased,been posting to UK for 0.90 cents for ages now

Bloody hell, has it really gone up over 100%? When did that happen? I obviously don't send many letters to international destinations because i hadn't noticed either.

Re: A New Case

unfortunately there are no near misses with this virus Most people who get infected only have mild symptoms. Wouldn't that qualify as a near miss? Something else: what protection do you get from wearing gloves? I am not talking about how you'd use gloves in an operating room but in daily life (wher...

Re: Anyone wanting/needing to travel by air to Greece/Crete now.

when I lived in Crete I was the first to complain about this forum being hijacked for Anglocentric topics My question was specifically about Britain though and you're replying to it. It's just that seen from here this is frankly puzzling. I mean, I can't even see it as incompetence, it just doesn't...

Re: Anyone wanting/needing to travel by air to Greece/Crete now.

Can anyone explain to me why Britain would introduce a compulsory quarantine now (well, in two weeks' time) instead of having done so months ago? Is there a logical explanation (in terms of managing Covid-19)? Or is it just done just to prevent Brits from travelling abroad and get them to spend thei...

Re: Britons urged to travel to Greece this summer

Of course people would love to visit Greece for a holiday this summer, but the stress and worry of air travel right now is a major deterrent.

That's a very different way of putting it. I can see that as of now many people who are not deterred by it and will come of they can.

Re: Britons urged to travel to Greece this summer

Who would even want to take a holiday to Greece for a week or two this summer?

What a strange statement! As far as i can see there are loads of people who'd really love to come to Greece this summer if they are allowed to.

Re: Coronavirus, what happens next

It would have been nice to go out for a meal and/or drink in safety before the virus is imported onto the island from the mainland.

It's not exactly as if the mainland is overcome with Covid-19 so I would not worry too much.

Re: Britons urged to travel to Greece this summer

The Greek government seems to have recognised this but the UK government hasn't. I think that at some point when the Greek government were mulling over how best to end lockdown they were considering bringing in an age factor but that was dropped. Anyway, relying on age is illogical, it's just a num...

Re: Coronavirus, what happens next

Now ask yourself what Billy Gates (high school dropout and vaccine "expert") has to gain by selling vaccines. (Clue: it begins with "bill...")

As if Gates needed money! Can we possibly keep this forum conspiracy theories free?
