The mad cabbie was the trigger to write this review, together with bloody anger I will admit too, and frustration at myself for falling into the Sarah (Trampus) saga, with hook, line and sinker, with the hook firmly embedded in my throat. He wrote so eloquently and tactfully (Jillmurphy quote)...

“Ciao Addict and Proud of it.”

published 25/10/2004

ProI hope others can identify with this

ConsI'm going to make a lot of enemies.

To put it bluntly I loathe cynics and despise hypocrites. What has shaken me from my normal role as a “peacekeeper” and a genuine tolerant person? I have been reading some reviews on Ciao addiction, a topic that seems to be getting a lot of use nowadays. I found a fair balance but the cynics that...

ProCiao a fun place to be!

ConsCan't get off the computer!

AS many of you know this is my 200th review! I decided I wanted to see what a Ciao addict I was by asking members of my beloved COT to ask me Ciao related questions! I did ask for one question from each of them, but I have ended up with several questions from each member! I will do my best to...

ProIt's No. 300

ConsIt's No. 300

As I've reached No. 300 I thought I'd take a look back at my time on Ciao and let people see that perhaps I am a touch addicted, well actually it's more like I just enjoy my writing. It’s been about 2 years and 3 months since I took the plunge and registered my name with ciao. I’d been on Dooyoo...

~ ~ First of all let’s analyse the question we’re being asked here. “Member Advice On Ciao Addiction” Well, for starters, it’s not really a question, is it? And does “Ciao Addiction” actually exist, and if so, are any of us here qualified to give anyone else “Advice” about it? I’ve no doubt that...

ProYou're not alone !

ConsYou may not agree.

I joined Ciao exactly one year ago with the idea of making a bit of extra money, I had no idea how much of my own time was going to be consumed by this little 'Hobby', and cerainly no idea of how addicted I was to become. So what is the definition of addiction ? Well according to 'Answers.com'...

ConsIt's still a challenge

ProMore original than copying Rudyard Kipling.

ConsBlatant stereotyping of psychiatrists.

I haven't done the housework and the garden's in a mess. It's not that just want to shirk, as surely you can guess. I've got carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, RSI. I called the doctor to my home To find the reason why. She said, “I’ve seen these signs before, but you have got it...
