Me thinks you have fallen for our beloved Cynthia's sense of humour .......

Cyns :-D :-D :-D


Reggie Report 18 Jun 2013 10:17


Slow on the uptake!

And my reported post was merely that GR were probably too busy dealing with malicious RR'ing

Point PROVED, methinks

And why did the person who reported it not have the courage/manners to identify her/himself?

If it wasn't so unlikely, I'd think that maybe she/he has a guilty conscience


Gai Report 18 Jun 2013 10:46

Wouldn't it be great if GR actually let you know who reported your post as this may stop all the unnecessary reporting.

and before anyone says anything no I haven't lost my mind and also realise it would never happen.



Renes Report 18 Jun 2013 11:21

There surely must come a time when GR will deal severely with the perpetrator of these silly RRd - it cannot go on indefinitely ......

This continual yo yo-ing between GR and member emails regarding RRd does more
to disparage long standing members than any other action, and I know personally several very, very experienced members .. who just did not renew -

And I now see them quite happily helping with look ups on other sites

What a waste of everyones time .... and more importantly .. What a resource this site has lost

Shameful behaviour that should be dealt with GR . .......


Cynthia Report 18 Jun 2013 11:34

Porkie_Pie Report 18 Jun 2013 11:55

Maybe Natasha has gone on holiday for several weeks like Estelle did last year & forgotten to mention it.


Porkie_Pie Report 18 Jun 2013 13:51

Reggie Report 18 Jun 2013 22:31

Thanks, guys............

.........good to know that common sense does sometimes prevail


Susan Report 19 Jun 2013 07:31

Many time I have suggested to Genes to publish names of the reporter of posts.

I can't see why they do not do it ,as Gai said it would stop most of it or at least some RR"s in an instant.

Reggie Nothing wrong with your post either :-)glad they put it back up.

Sitting back on my hands :-D Just in case ;-)



Gai Report 19 Jun 2013 11:39

Great to see Reggie's post has been reinstated though it shouldn't have been RR'd in the first place. So whoever RR'd it :-P



Renes Report 19 Jun 2013 12:54
