1. I do reckon hly should be given the modship on this board and remove that charlie88 who is not doing anything for this board as he promised in his appointment speech.

2. charlie88, where are you?  You must be too busy to take care of us, for now we still don't know why the Chinese curfew is still imposed.


1. Well, if Hly was granted for the modship, I would be going to cry because I aint law-abiding...And If he was missing, I would be thinking of his " my 2 cents".
Er, dilemma!

2.  I suppose charlie 88 hope to give us more opportunities to practise our English, Rovi. That is why the Chinese curfew has not been lifted till now.
