    when I was a youth, I found that those who used terms such as 'big boys' were never 'big' (in any physical or mental sense) and they were not 'boys'...their mental development was suspended at a far earlier stage.

    I have never used the word before. However, I was a supporter of the movement that wanted to talk about poetry, rather than the sorry misgivings of one man. do you not see the playfulness in misspelling 'misspelling'?

    Orwell it wasn't a deliberate one as you have previously misspelled it. You mad no point other than saying that ch. is a myth. Who ever said that? As to the laymen debunking anything, permit me to laugh. As to the entire scientific community...... the entire population of Germany was behind Hitler and history is full of examples. You, however are only full of it.

    even monkeys need stimulation. they are somewhat more productive in their lives than some alleged doctors. we share 99 % of our DNA with chimps. I have been informed that some doctors share 100 %. that would explain the physical similarities. a beard fools no one when it's bedtime for Bonzo.

    it was a deliberate mispelling, to bring the monkey out of the play-pit. I notice, with relish, that you didn't argue about the rather accurate point I made. you can't really, can you?

    Allan, I have reviewed fairly. when Allan is writing serious work, Allan is an able poet. he doesn't need to waste time under aliases. he also appears to have a sense of humour. Allan does not strike me as such an egocentric poet, unlike certain people....and no, not you Sherrie.
