Multiple apologies seems to be taking it a bit far... ;-)

I don't think an apology is good enough. I reckon you should wear a bright
pink dress with yellow & blue flowers on it all throught the whitby
weekend.
Not that I'll be their to witness it though.

I wouldn't.

I just checked the highway code and there's nothing about stopping
at bright pink dresses. This, of course, is a Good Thing.

It's ok. Now you have to stop clogging up the net with 3 (albiet
slightly different) copies of the apology...

IMHO, it's probably safer if you are mistaken for some variety of
gangsta, because you'll blend in, and you won't get hassled just in case
you're part of the Jamaican Voodoo Posse or whatever :)

That's the CSP.

However, if they think you are a rival drug dealer they might well decide
to kill you.

unfortunately, most of my mobile phone calls consist of "sorted",
"wicked", "I'll be round later with the boys" and "have you got the
gear?", all of which are quite innocent but get taken out of context...!

1996 would have been about when upg was created. And before that
there was already alt.gothic

Yes indeed, June 1995 was when it was created, although not everyone
could access it directly at that point. (I think a fellow named
-=Falcon=- showed me a way to access it indirectly by pointing lynx at
the Warwick University NNTP server. Then we had to convince our own
university to carry the group.) alt.gothic had been going for three and
a bit years by that point.

Was relaying this thread to Mrph, who I saw in Quinn's in Camden where
we both were for a birthday gathering last night. He perked up and
smiled and was interested. We might yet hear from him here.

Who else still has a look here now and then?

Well you see, there's UPGs problem right there. No, not Morph. The
fact that Camden has a nice pub, whereas in UPG it's impossible to get a
decent pint of real ale. :o)

Quinn's have given up on stocking Belgian and German beers, they only
carry a handful of varieties of those. As for real ale, just a couple of
Abbot beers there.

It's true that you cannot easily get a good pint here :D
