Why do people ask all the time on here what the address of a particular bank sort code is? I must be missing something because I've never figured out why it matters where a person's bank account is held. Can someone shed some light please?

Yes, it puzzles me too, 20/20. I assume its because they want to write to that bank, but there's easy ways to find this out. I hope all will be revealed
I've said this before on a couple of previous posts on the same subject.
It's my theory that these people are the modern day equivalent of train spotters, but they collect bank sort codes instead. They loiter around cashpoint machines collecting discarded slips of paper. They all wear ratty old track suits tucked into socks, cheap anoraks, jam jar specs, and the men usually have a comb over. They usually have some arresting physical defect, and dandruff and BO are de rigeur. When the banks are closed they sit hunched over their PC's with a thermos flask and a fish paste sandwich, waiting for some sucker on Answerbank to tell them the address of a particular sort code. At this point they are transported to a state of sheer ecstasy as they can add another one to their note books.
Well, that's my theory....unless someone has a better one.

Hey mrs_overall I quite like the idea of that, sounds like an interesting hobby! Is there a website where I can contact other sort code enthusiasts? The long winter evenings will seem so much shorter now!
Twenty20, I understand it's a very secretive organisation. Just as the Freemasons have secret handshakes, the Banksort Coders have a series of nervous tics, twitches and sniffs only they can recognise. The length of the drip on the end of their noses signifies their position in the organisation. The trick to meeting one is NOT to look like them. You have to dress and act normally and then sit on your own on a bus. This will guarantee that if one gets on the bus, he will sit next to you. I've already mentioned some of their official dress code but forgot to include that it is compulsary to have your specs repaired with elastoplast and have cotton wool protruding from one ear. You should also be proficient at pointing at things in the sky that no one else can see.
Good luck and enjoy your winter!
Something else I need to mention is the name of the organisation. Just as the Freemasons shorten their name to Masons, the Banksort Coders call themselves Bankers.
At least it sounded like Bankers......I could have misheard slightly!
