Glen As you say they are not worth the publicity, but I would appreciate a pm with their names on so I can add them to my blacklist (which I shall start with their names at the top!!) There is no justification for anyone, ever, sending anything nasty to anyone. I'm sorry you received this - but I hope you know you have far more support on here than those sorry people could ever hope for. Kim

Glen, There is really no need for people to be rude to other users in this way - especially by PM. I understand that you don't wish to name; but can you tell us if they were men or women? Cheers, Horatia

One man (with a board nickname), and one woman. Not frequent visitors to the boards and mostly at the weekend when they do. Glen (who is sorting out Mrs G for a while) back later.

Glen a) thank you for your postings on the boards, they are witty and informative. b) I know what you mean. I posted a - I thought - helpful response to someone who e-mailed me saying I should mind my own business and a few other things not worth repeating here. Hey, she asked for advice, I gave it! Deleted her message and forgot all about it until a few days later she asked if she could see my tree. Guess what I replied! nell

OH Glen, My little tinsel knicker clad mate, I am so sorry that you have had such a bad experience with people who well..... just not worth a second thought. YOU ARE MUCH LOVED on this board, and the volume of support you have recieved from this thread just goes to prove it. Hope you feel better after venting a little steam. Fuzzy x

Glen just seen this I haven't been on any of your threads but have seen you about and you seem to be one of the nice ones on here ( which is the majority may I add). I hope this won't stop you from helping and carrying on. Germaine x who was just a little too early for the fifties, but hope I never behave in that way.

Just to add my support - along OC's lines, I think. It does seem to be the ones that do a lot of the helping that are also most active in the ''refreshment'' threads. Some people are just weird. I expect those that wrote such unpleasant things are the ones who read the worst into everything, so they end up with a (sadly) self-fulfilling prophecy that everyone is rude to them - mainly because they got in first!

Stacy Report 3 Sep 2006 13:44

I dont often chat on these boards but do read then everyday as some of the advice is wonderful. I recognise a lot of the names who chat on here regularly and help everyone who asks just because they want to not because the have to. I disagree with not posting their names, I think you should name and shame them, how embarrassed they would be, perhaps they would then take a look at themselves a see how rude they have been Stacy

This sort of scum should be ignored completey, I believe you are right not to bother to name and shame they would love the attention.They are probably jealous of your Tinsel Knickers, as they cannot get any to fit , all too large for them.

GLEN, DON'T GET YOUR TINSEL KNICKERS IN A TWIST ABOUT IT! IF WE CONTRIBUTE TO THESE BOARDS AS MUCH AS YOU DO, THEN WE'RE ALL ENTITLED TO LARK ABOUT A BIT.... WE'VE EARNED IT. LAST WEEK IT WAS TED LUNT THAT GOT IT IN THE NECK. I WAS BORN IN 1955, BUT I REFUSE TO FALL INTO THE SAME CATEGORY AS THESE LIFELESS DROIDS. AT LEAST YOU HAVE FRESH KNICKERS NOW.... LET'S HOPE YOU SOON HAVE SOME FRESH GAGS.

Glen - am saddened to read this thread. How anyone could send something abusive to you is beyond comprehesion. I have only ever known you to be polite, helpful, funny and witty - in fact one of the all round Mr. Nice Guys on the board. Like everyone else has said - ignore them and don´t let the b******** win.

Have just come on site today and I too am very shocked and saddened to hear about this. I opened up your thread expecting to read about some wonderful help you had received re the Turner/Townsend puzzle - what you had to report is NOT amazing, but downright rude. How very DARE they be so unpleasant. You are right to ignore it, Glen, they obviously have some kind of problem, but that doesn't give them the right to be abusive, either on the boards or in pms.

Hugs Julie dont even suppose this will get noticed :(

Glen, dont let the idiots get you down, i for one find the threads you partisipate (sp) in very informative and funny, the ones that are supposed to be that is. My image of your tinsel knickers, is one with a big GLEN on the back in red sequins and the tinsel all round. Keep ya chin up and ignore them. Sylvia

Glen, just popped in for 5 and I am so sorry to hear these w*****ers have upset you. What are they on about? You are a lovely man - who on earth have you offended Glen, do post their names so that no one ever helps them. Dont worry kiddo, people must be so sad to bother to do this.

That's a shame Glen, take no notice of prats like that. Why do they do it? If they spent any time at all reading this board then surely they would know that what they said was blatantly untrue! Sounds like out and out trouble-making to me. Btw, until the 'election' I thought you were a girl - I think it was the word 'knickers' that confused me ....... easily done. Take care Bev x
