The Roads, Streets and Lanes challenge does not contain Ealing bROADway, Fulham bROADway and Tooting bROADway. Should it?

Someone once decided that it was to be without them. It would be silly to change it now, meaning new times aren't comparable to old times.

Judging by my inclusion of BarKINGside in the Royal Challenge, I probably would have included them.

I think we discussed this at the time as also "Gardens" are left out and a case could be made for those to be included...
As Tubeguru says it was a long time ago so I cant recall exactly how we deemed to exclude "Broadways"

But it was only last year that it was last attempted and written about on the forum. It is also documented, like almost every challenge, on tangy's Top Times website.

Yes, but you make the mistake of thinking that I give a shit about it.

Because I wanted to know what he was talking about. Once I found out, I realised I didn't care.

This is all very simple stuff. :roll:

You must care some amount, otherwise why would you still be the forum administrator for 8 years?

If the challenge doesn't interest you, then don't comment. Rather than say "I don't a give shit".

Of course I care! I'm only half-serious.

As to your second point, I think a few people here need to put that particular maxim to use. But thanks for telling me how to behave anyway.
