With little to do for ten minutes and frustrated at not always getting replies I decided to check the names search facility for wastes of space. No its not me! Check these copy and pastes. Check out the others. Maybe we could e mail all the wasters, clog up the system and force a cleaning by the site. ................................................................................................................................................

another good reason to suggest that GR's members are fee-paying only. Anyone can register to add daft things like this! :-) Joy

you are not stirring it, Bob. It will be left because it was not started by certain people. :-) Joy

I've seen a lot worse! But GR did see fit to remove some of them when we discovered them! lol Like Joy says, another good case for GR to be for fee paying members only Jeanette x

I realise the membership fee is not a fortune, but... is it not a fact that if one is not a full member the e mail facility is not available? All the dummy names I found have 'message' this member by them. Bob, Devils advocate again it seems.

Bob A fee paying member can contact a non fee paying member. The non fee payer can then message the paying member back. However a non fee paying member cannot make first contact Jeanette x

I've just read this thread and did a search for Bob the Builder and guess what?? I found 15 names, thought I would send a message to one of them, it didn't register as message sent but there was a membership number there, after looking at a couple more I found that they had different membership numbers so I assume they have nothing better to do than keep registering with GR.

Brenda, Guiltily, I did actually laugh when I saw your message. I have nevertheless, alongside smiles, had a great nights research for the Cooke's. Bob
