Mary Cosgrove writes:

“I was wondering if you could help us find people who lost 28 days of their lives to the world’s longest continuous debate in UCG (as it then was) almost 20 years ago. If any of the Broadsheeters have only a vague memory of February 1995, and that involves discussing ornamental fish, Joe Dolan and the phrase “keep talking”, we want them to get in touch at the Facebook page below.”
