Hi Mo, just popped in to see how things are going. Jean's thread was so friendly and welcoming it's a shame it got deleted.
I hope Jean will start a new one as soon as she can - just show those who deleted the thread, how popular it was and how spiteful they are to have done such a thing.
Best wishes, Sallie.

Thought Deanna was doing the nightshift, have you nodded off love? lol
Good job I am about!

I hope Jean is having a nice holiday, and won't go into an internet cafe and look for her thread, it would upset her, and would be a shame during her holiday.

A nudge for Just Jean.

Hello all. I see we are still here. Thank the lord for that.
I did send a pm to Jean,the same day I realised her thread had gone.
She did say that J had bought her something that she could check in on here. I am sorry I don't know what it's called,but you can check your e.mails
etc on it.
Yes Liz,I think Deanna must have dozed of,but hey we have all got to sleep sometime.
Speak to you all soon. Mo xxx

Hi everyone,

I have had a very nice reply from Laura the GR team about Jeans Thread.

Someone has reported a breach of guideline on Jeans thread.

It stated it would not be in our interest to remove postings unnecessarily.
and that it has been removed for breach of guidelines.

So I'm so sorry for Jean but someone out there is not.... !


Sallie Report 20 Apr 2009 21:55

Hi Mo,
Just read Marilyn's post. Makes me wonder who this person is, and how
would they have known that Jean's thread was in breach of guidelines!
Whatever that means!

Yes Marilyn, I also feel sorry for Jean, she is so nice to everyone, and I am sure there was nothing on the thread that shouldn't have been.

Let's hope that it won't be too long before Jean starts a new one.

Hi Everyone ,This is Marie I cant find the thread , I had it bookmarked and also on my threads and bingo its gone Jean will be upset, I cant understand why they would delete this thread its such a great way to make friends and to get rid of our stress by talking to one another.
How are you all and how is your spring weather it is starting to get cool in our neck of the woods.I should be in my garden
but it has been extremely windy the last 3days good drying weather especially for Large towels and sheets.
I went to Sydney on a bus trip on Saturday we had a trip on the harbour and a scrumptious lunch also a glass of wine. It was very nice . I hope Jean and her OH are having a nice holiday Regards to you all Marie from OZ.

Good afternoon nudge for Just Jean.

Oh good,you found us Marie. I did think to myself ,that we had not heard from you in a while.
We have glorious weather here at the moment inthe UK,but you are coming into your winter arn't you.?.You been of gadding around again,theres no stopping you is
I am really concerned about Jeans thread going. I am wondering if it was my last coment,on the thread,which was not meant to be derogatory in any way. Daisy had asked Jean where she was going on her holiday. I
remarked that Jean did not know where she was going,apart from round the bend,as J was driving,and that she would know where she was going when she got there.
Do any of you think that this comment could have been,misconstrued in any way.If it was,I really did not mean it to be. Just me and my inane sense of humour,i am afraid. I don't think Jean would have taken offence
over it,and if anyone else did,then I am really sorry for any upset caused.
I would appreciate your thoughts on this. Thanks all. Mo xxx

Mo ,

I really don't think its anything to do with us or you. It looks like a lot of innocent threads are missing for no reason at all.

I 'm beginning to think I was fobbed off with GR reply.

Shimms had a perfectly good thread on reuniting with her long lost sister,it gave peeps a lot of hope in finding their rellies .and so informative . She is so upset it got whooshed.
So please don't blame yourself....... its all very strange.........

(((((((hugs)))))) Mo .
I agree with Marilyn, there's just something strange going on. I was sent back to the log in screen twice this morning and so tried Family tree Forum, and a few people on the forum were having trouble with Genes.
Try not to worry .

I don't think it was reported, it was not breaking any guide lines as far as I remember. People have had the same reply regarding the support thread for Daff and that was not controversial either. I think there is sometimes a glitch in the system or the admin fingers get itchy and press the wrong buttons, then trot out that stock reply.

Thank you girls,for your responces.
I think the person who has the itchy finger,at GR need to see someone and get it sorted.
Good night all. Mo xxx

Hi Mo and all, yes it seems as though all the nice threads are disappearing, which is a shame. Really enjoy reading the threads, I don't post on them very much, but like to read them.

Best wishes to you all. Sallie.

Good afternoon everybody.
I am trying to keep this thread going,for when our Jean gets back. To show her how much we all care for her.
I hope you will all help me to keep it going.
Best wishes to you all. Mo xxx


Julia Report 23 Apr 2009 16:37

MOinKENT - If you had made the remark to Daisey re where Jean was going, either to me or about me, I would NOT be offended. It is a usual remark to make, and if, as has been said, Jean was relying on her husband to take her there, then she wouldn't know where she was going, if that makes sense.
Good Luck in keeping this going until she gets back
