"In an attempt to keep myself from slowly going mad I foolishly 'joined' a number of Facebook groups that interested me.I say foolishly because of all the ephemera that goes with joining any Facebook group. Anyone offered a Russian bride daily?

Im not going to name names because in the main the people who contribute are decent wargaming souls and are in the same boat as me.

Another excellent post from Rob. And I do agree with his comment. Every gaming site, not just those on FB, has a similar situation.

You always try to help but, oh but, it does get tiring.
