    Oh I keep forgetting that bloody thing. I’m thinking of buying Belinda Blinked 4 just for the spoilers so I’ll use it then.

    I don't understand why people wouldn't PM Christian some abuse now and then. It's very therapeutic, I suggest trying it.

    I'm just annoyed at the posts we're missing out on if it was in a thread somewhere.

    I'd really like to know. Especially if it was me. I can't account for all actions.

    It was me. I bitterly regret my actions and I hope you can all find it somewhere in your hearts to forgive me.

    It wasn’t actually me. I was just trying to be interesting.

    In all seriousness though, I think it should be bought to public.

    It all seems so strange to me. I have never thought of sending an abusive PM to anyone. Would never cross my mind.

    I haven't seen any "personal abuse" (beyond normal, Moopy-style piss-taking, and even that's dwindled) on here in ages.

    In my defence, I bumped the topic to see if we could get a few more sign-ups, not to re-heat any past scandals.

    Christian is a kind soul. Why does Moopy always feed on the innocent?

    We're looking for angel investors and corporate mavericks to relaunch the site as a luxury men's lifestyle brand.

    After GOOP, comes MOOP - loads of smelly shit that isn't really that good for you but we'll tell you it cures dysentery, piles and even a rectal prolapse.

    Also in development: MOOPY POOP - a capsule which not only makes your poo smell like one of Britney's perfumes, it'll also come out in the shape of the 1973 Eurovision trophy.

    Is that true? How is that possible? We weren’t on our BARE BONES with the Amazon link and with the addition of people paying...????

    I guess It depends on what you think we need. We don't have enough coming in each month yet to cover the standard outgoings, do we?

    Whether we NEED that now is another question.

    I'm not QUITE sure of the situation now, but obviously more is better. There could be an assortment of reasons why we might need more money. What if we fail our MOT?

    The aim is to cover the monthly costs with the Patreon - yes, we have also had some fabulous donations and have some standing orders coming in so it isn't everything but it would be nice to get things on an even keel.

    If you don't change it all into 10p pieces and spend it on the fruit machines.

    And what happened to the tailored Amazon link?

    Could we get a Patreon link integrated somewhere prominent on the page? @Indie @Mugatu

    That's Amazon's fault. They stopped supporting that type of advert.

    We could probably get a patreon link though.

    Pffft, I thought you knew me better than that.


    I don't go above a 2p slot machine.

    Can we have a breakdown of what our monthly costs are, and what we are getting in each month now then?

    The monthly costs are the same as previous. It's written in the first post.
    The income from Amazon is incredibly variable, some months we don't get a payment.
    I still need to finalise the patreon layouts, there are some tax forms to fill out..o

    £19/ month in standing orders (although we haven't been running a calender month yet)
    $31 / month pledged via patreon, reduced to $27 once fees are off, and further reduced once extracted to PayPal.
