KILKIS - INFAMY, INFAMY they have it infamy ...

Postby Yorgo » Fri Oct 08, 2021 10:29 am

How pleased I am to learn that the reported demise of Kilkis is untrue. This site "went down" so I asked around to be told that "Kilkis died"??!! I was so sad. Now, of course, I am delighted to see that Kilkis is still with us. I also had a brief thought in the line of - "now what will all the moaning bastaxrds do to get brilliant information you can rely upon"?
However, never thee no-mind, as they say.
Good news.

You are way behind the curve, Yorgo! The site has been back up for several weeks. But I'm wondering where this ugly rumour about Kilkis began, as I heard it in the Sitia area in early September... hmmm.

As Mark Twain wrote after he was contacted by a reporter from the New York Journal to enquire if rumours that he was seriously ill or had even died were true: "The report of my death was an exaggeration." To be fair some days it feels like I have. If I had it would not affect the operation of the forum. I am not involved in running it in any way, simply a member like everyone else - just a bit more verbose than most.

Oh please!

Hiding behind the anonymity of an online forum to insult someone is really cowardly and unnecessary.

There are a couple of unpleasant contributors on here that we could do without.

I’ve always had a fondness for Mark Twain quotes...” Be careful of reading health books, you might die from a misprint”.

Bit like a friend of ours who was afraid of buying the book 'The Complete Joy of Sex' in case he turned over two pages at once and did himself irreparable damage! Bob.

I agree and, of course, not forgetting those attributed to him that he never said/wrote.

I think you can find quotes that resonate with you even from unlikely sources. I am not a fan of Ronald Reagan or Reaganomics but he did make one quote that I particularly like:

    "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the Government, and I'm here to help."
Completely universal and timeless.
