Thank you Jonesey

As a regular contributor to this site I can verify much of what you have said. I have no idea who any of the people are who I have contact with. I never 'hover' over the name of posters to see who they are or how long they have been members.

I know that there are posters on here from all over the world only because of them mentioning where they live.

So I will post on many threads that other regulars will also appear on.

A thread started by the OP back in May caused a lot of disageement between members.

When you look at it now it has been edited to remove the offending comments.

It was suggested by the Team to the OP to add an apology but this has not happened.

Shame that the OP put on one thread something about Freedom of Speech not needing an apology.

When the OP realises that sometimes she upsets members and offers an apology at the time then she would have no need to post this thread.

I see that a thread started over 24 hours ago by the OP asking for help with SA records has not been returned to....wonder if that is because the three people who replied with advice, were members she does not want replying on her threads?

Or is she just downright rude?

FB quote - Very apt for this thread

Two thoughts:
1. Never be bullied into silence.
And
2. Do not be bullied out of your common sense by the specialist; two to one he is a pedant.

NS, FB, very apt for this YOUR thread

Your thoughts, or should I say famous quotes do not fit at all with your OP or the thread title in fact this thread is seeking to do exactly the opposite of what those quotes actualy mean

The thing is Kay.........when you delete a post, it makes the other posts look????

Maybe you could have left it there and explained? Then it would make Jax' post make sense?

I replied on that thread and I really do not care whether or not it is acknowledged. I posted the information in good faith and it was my choice to do so.

Don't get me wrong feedback as to whether or not the poster found the information useful is always good as it helps to know whether or not to pass the same information on again.

I accepted a long time ago that not everyone is appreciative of the help given on the boards.
