    luckily Spymaster doesn't represent the site, he's only a poster here, whereas what's on the punch games bit he links to represents all of us.

    Yeah, but I don't care and make no pretence of being right-on and PC, love.

    But you go right ahead and keep brown-nosing in defence of "witch", "slapper" and "wrinkled hag"! :thumbs:

    I also don't recall being sexist towards you (though don't care if I was because by your standards it's meaningless). Are you sure you're not imagining things again?

    I'm happy to represent urban75 for political correctness (but nothing else) if no-one else is up to the task.

    should urban75 ever through some misfortune be summoned to court i am sure editor would love to see you stand in the dock rather than him.

    I wasn't defending such language or behaviour, far from it, but it's more than a bit rich of you to say others shouldn't be sexist and then claim it's OK for you to do so.

    • Personal Attacks
    I made no such claim. You're having even bigger comprehension issues than usual today aren't you? The hypocrisy is in your idol decrying some pretty tame sexist advertising, with your tongue planted firmly in his rectum, whilst being well known for "slap a Spice Girl" and owning a site which is STILL referring to women as "witches", "slappers", and "hags".

    My sexism, or lack thereoff, is a totally different issue. So get stuffed, you old bat.

    Funny how this thread about the multi-million pound multinational Brewdog has turned into a discussion about long-forgotten content on the other, distinctly separate part of this site, dating from around 1996, isn't it?

    Sure makes you wonder why some people would be searching and dredging up completely unrelated and irrelevant words from nearly a quarter of a century ago - even more so when it's already been clearly stated that the aforementioned, long forgotten material is going to be removed.

    It's almost like they have no actual defence for Brewdog's recent sexist advertising so have to embark on long winded attempts at character assassination and ad hominems.

    Two warning points for "personal attacks"? :confused:

    I get the one for having a pop at EG above. That was fully planned and expected; but for post #1319? That's just telling the truth.

    At least more people will read it now.

    I'm not sure how reasonable it is to trawl up stuff from a quarter of a century ago to score points today. We've all said stuff in the past that looks a bit crass and horrible today - that doesn't mean we can't be critical of things that look crass and horrible to us now.

    Aye. When it's sexist advertising from 6 years ago it's fair game and current. When it's misogynistic rants against women that are still on the site RIGHT NOW, it's old hat and to be ignored!

    For sure - and that criticism has already taken place in another thread recently, and I've already stated that'll I'll remove all of the content when I get time.

    And yes it is embarrassing that I used those words but - crucially - at the time no one on this board had anything negative to say about it. Times change and we learn and move on.

    But to dredge this up again in a thread about a multi-million brewing business is simply out of order. It's a cheap personal attack.

    Should Ed go back through all the things he's ever written on this site and check to make sure he's not said anything embarrassing, or should he wait for you to alert him for each instance?

    I'm afraid I'm not allowed to mention or refer to a certain person any more. I've been given 2 warnings in quick succession and another will result in a ban. It's a trap that I've fallen into before so I decline to answer the question on the grounds that it may incriminate me (or similar).

    This thread is about Brewdog. I understand that it might be in some people's interests to continue to disrupt and deflect any criticism of the company by dredging up irrelevant material about me from decades ago, but let me make it clear: anyone continuing this off topic discussion can expect a warning and a ban if they continue, in line with the site rules.

    Thread is now third Google result when searching "Brixton Brewdog hybrid burger".
    Someone on this thread deserves full marks for search engine optimisation.

    Let's get back to Brewdog and their new 100% vegan pub.

    Not many vegan pubs out there (or am I wrong?) - so they seem to be blazing a bit of a trail there.

    Thoughts?

    Teaboy It definitely looks brighter over there..

    There's quite a few vege pubs and resteraunts around but soley vegan? Probably not many pubs at all.

    Big companies can do this sort of thing because they can take the hit of it failing plus they can still work with the exposure it brings. Sainsburys have recently tried a card only only (fail) and Wetherspoons had a few smoke free pubs long before the ban came in (success).

    I like Brewdog af beers, not only Nanny State but they do an af Punk now as well. There are plenty more af beers around these days but Brewdog were a big help when I decided to give up alcohol two years ago.

    This thread reminds me of staying in a cheap hotel in Blackpool about 10 years ago and being assured they did a veggie breakfast. The next morning when we were presented with a full english I reminded them that 3 of us had asked for veggie breakfast.The owner/cook/waiter said 'yes love, the veggie folk just leave the bacon and sausage.'

    Lots of arguing on here mind :(

    And I bet there's literally millions of people inputting those exact search terms right now.

    Of course, if you type in 'brewdog hybrid burger' this site is nowhere to be seen.

    Yeah, there's probably some connection between this site and Brixton which is escaping everyone here.
