Re: Acorazados de la segunda guerra mundial

Goodbye !

Hello everybody, it's time for me to follow the very wise example of Antonio Bonomi, who left this forum time ago, when it was clear that with this "moderator" only one side was "protected" and we were just attacked and humiliated by a biased arbiter. At that time, however, he couldn't suspect yet t...

Re: Clerical issues

Hello everybody, Bill Jurens had the impudence to write: "....I have, with considerable reluctance, as a cautionary measure extended Mr. Vituani's ban until 15 March 2020.... " I can easily imagine what an interior conflict and what a reluctance for this unrepentant hypocrite. :lol: :lol: " I must e...
