    100% with you on this Conrad, it shows that the marketing effort is succeeding in bringing in reviews and members. Clearly those reviews generated via the marketing on Facebook are going to be different to those generated by say a banner on a CAMRA website, but they should surely be no less valued.

    I know this thread is generally used for other comment but it does have an open title, and I don't think my question warrants a new topic.

    Does anyone know where I can find that thread that contained some excellent pub/beer/drink - related quotes?

    Many thanks.

    Hi thanks Conrad for the explanation that explains things. I did not realise this Pub had come up before on this site. I can not use Facebook as its seen as a serious security risk by our Lord & Masters at work and blocked as such from every computer on our work Network & Laptops.

    It might be this one that started off with the Buffalso Theory and Beer joke

    I have to admit if I was in charge of IT at a workplace I would probably block Facebook. It does seem to cost an undue amount of work hours of those who are of its persuasion.

    Thanks Millay, I may be able to use something from there, but the thread I was searching for was one containing quotes regarding drinking/drinks/pubs.
    eg Belloc's 'When you have lost your Inns, drown your sorry selves...' recently sported by A&H(?) as a signature.

    I honestly don't remember there being one on PuG. I know I started one on the 'dark side' on that subject, but can't recall anybody doing one here.

    The A Swift One blog has some good ones though. Open the site and scroll down to the bottom rght hand side.

    It is a new one on me as well, I think it must have been on another forum.

    Feel free to start a new one here though, sounds like a great thread .

    Default Hi

    Just thought I'd say hello. Beer lover and occasional contributor to BITE, was then perplexed to find that forum had disappeared. A query on Pub Utopoia forum brought a reply from Gangsta that BITE users had migrated here!

    Seems a shame that the forum here and the the publist at BITE can't be combined though - I put in a reasonable number of reviews on BITE and it seems a drag to consider doing it again on this site. But good to see a lively forum again.

    Cheers!
