Roy. After the post was rr'd, I googled jokes about the topic. It was the first joke I saw on a web site. It is an old joke that anyone can find easily by googling.

I thought it might be that one. And you later told the same joke.

Hope that is not too vague. Was not upset myself with joke, but can understand some Genes members not liking that kind of joke and reporting it. And absolutely no porkies. Hope you believe my account.

John, Your post on page one 4 Feb 2013 10:37

Are you telling Porkies?

I no that no one PM'd you and i also no 100% that my post never made it to Google "FACT"

I Googled just before and just after the thread was wooooshed and it was not on Google and still isn't and will not because the thread was deleted by GR

even your post on this thread 4 Feb 2013 10:37 is not on Google yet so how mine appeared when it was only live for abt 2 hours is beyond me

So how did you get to see the Joke?

I never put the Joke on hear, I put it on MR M's Joke thread

whats that saying "something something pants on fire"

I can see people being offended. And I note it was reviewed and the report was upheld. I am not surprised myself. Bit rag mag from the 1960's, I thought.

Does anyone actually think it was rr'd because the rr'er was offended? I don't.

I think it's a control thing......

Well I'm not blushing over here in Canada....maybe the cold has got to my brain but I can't see why anyone would be THAT offened they had to RR that joke. I heard worse in the school playground for goodness sake....maybe that says more about my school than anything else though..........
