Waste not want not jeni - your neighbour is clearly capable of shooting them for yougrin You might want to invite them round to share (how many people would a squirrel feed?)

hmm

Could you pm me that barbecued squirrel recipe please johanna - jeni might like a copy too.

Oops! It's back....

Anagram Thu 28-Jun-12 12:25:27

The Porn thread's gone now! confused

glamma...I blame those two rascals - Pete and gramps. Naughty nellie has been having her wicked way with them...all in the name of research, you understand. hmm

Now I know why so many nana's have been seen going down the garden to the "shed" confused

We did have a thread on mummy p**n (not typing in full in case it triggers the same response!) maybe that was what caused the hits?

I think I might have said this on another thread but when I put in 'toys' as a search, my eyes were opened as never before.

Johanna grin this is a much more plausible explanation than my theory that RBS were failing to pay the tech bills.
I thought it was sheer genius the way whenim worked the phrase "fifty shades of grey" into the narrative of the geriatric porn thread. It has obviously gone viral!

When google was still reasonably new I once typed in Sussex into the search box when looking for a possible hotel. Whether I put a space in by accident I do not know but I got all sorts of websites!blush

It could happen - when my granddaughter was about eight she began to show signs of early puberty and when I looked up 'premature sexual development' I was offered some horrible sites meant for paedophiles. (She was treated successfully, but it was worrying because it can be caused by a tumour on the pituitary gland).
Another time, I was doing some research on the historic treatment of children in schools, and when I looked up 'corporal punishment' you can imagine the kind of sites I was offered!

Nice one, johanna grin

(blush) thought you were serious OMG I am so thick at times

Anagram Wed 27-Jun-12 19:07:42

grin johanna!

whitewave Wed 27-Jun-12 19:07:11

Yo! ho! they were all disappointed then - but at least they would learn a lot about humour

johanna Wed 27-Jun-12 18:59:18

We got taken off last night.
Apparently lots of people looking for porn were directed to Gransnet.
..... The site crashed....... so may hits!!!!!!!

Even today when clicking on 50 shades of grey hair, it directed you to Sport..
gringrin

Also people looking for barbecued squirrels ended up on Gransnet.!!!

Them's my thoughts

Anagram Wed 27-Jun-12 18:47:30

Yes, it's being doing that for a while. I wonder if GNHQ takes a thread away to scrutinise it for possible contraventions of the rules, and then puts it back again as if nothing had happened?

whitewave Wed 27-Jun-12 18:42:56

Is it me - but every now and again a thread disappears from the active list then pops back again
