I use wiki but I've never amended or added anything to its great body.

I firmly believe the term "pinster" must have its day. How can we define and enter such a small cultist but none the less brave movement of souls in the sacred annals of the internet?

A "pin-ster" is someone who plays bowling, i.e. knocks down pins. 8)

It might get you onto a "fastest deleted article" list but that's about it. Find a media source that references pinsters or pinsterism and you have a chance!

Hi OW. Well when I saw your post I decided to check Wiki to see if their was any reference to the pinsters. (All i got on the search page was PinsTer.com.cn.. Anyway who actually coined the phrase pinster around here was it yerself?. Its time it was put out there into general usage among the populace!!.. So how would one describe a pinster...?

Thrifty,sensible, aware,enlightened...mmmm :)

Curmudgeonly bearish, occasionally bullish. Given to outbursts. Not noted for patience.

I'd say the first step would be to create an article for thepropertypin.com to begin with.

Right lads, own up - one of you IS Morgan Kelly, now who is it??!?!

The man is definitely a Pinster, has to be!


Found in this thread 3rd of July 07 viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2402&hilit=+pinster

So it looks to be conor_mc was the first to coin the phrase in phrase of Morgan Kelly.

Unless I am mistaken.

I think it wouldnt be too hard to get the press to take notice. See how house hunters have more than once taken things from Irish property watch. Also the press have taken things said here and on the old askaboutmoney.com thread and printed them.

With any press release, the name of the group is important. I.e the property pinsters or the muffin men wouldnt really work. However Soma and his "Irish Property Watch" is pretty good.

Someone also came up with a suggestion for this before, something along the lines of an organisation that sounds like a vested interest but spewing out bearish warnings etc ya know to stir things up!

Good find, bit early to say, but folks we could have a winner.If so then Blind BE, while I haven't agreed in the past with all your posts (just most of them) which is what makes an excellent forum, I salute you...., 8DD
