Well I assume that all who complained about Taff's last thread for Daff have received the same reply as I have., from GR. I am absolutely furious at their feeble, stock reply. ' Inappropriate my' ** very insulting. BC XXX.


Jac Report 20 Apr 2009 16:44

I agree BC - a less "inappropriate" thread I have yet to read and add to.

It only shows that they dont know their "a**se" from their elbow (as my old welsh grannie used to say). I'm not quite sure what that means, but it sounds about right for this situation - lol

Hiya Daffers - hope you are taking things easy this pm - sounds like a long day yesterday, so keep something in reserve love, just for the present eh?

Lovely day here - nice yesterday but north wind, so a bit cool and I think I may have signs of hayfever (or else Jackson the cat allergy - he's been sniffing about and head-butting me quite a lot lately - I think he's in lurve!)

Take care - bi for now

I haven't had an answer yet but what do they mean inappropriate and why has it taken them 6 months to decide that? Inappropriate to what? The gen board, Genes, any chat forum???

Can't really comment until I get my answer but I don't think we should let it rest there. wonder if the introduction thread was also inappropriate. And if this is the case would it not be polite to warn the owner of the thread that they were about to delete it?



MrDaff Report 20 Apr 2009 17:12

I have just woken up and logged on... yep, I have got the same e-mail.... I will be interested to find out what Taff's e-mail will say, as the author of the thread there should be a more in-depth explanation.

*takes deep breath*

I have been taking it really easy today, Jac, honestly!! Slept most of it, lol!! ;¬))

~~~~~~~hiya Sally.... yer adding up is worse than mine... I have done it on my fingers and toes, so I know it's right, lololol Just 20 days to go til the eye candy arrives with all his machinery... not 30!!

Hey... maybe it's my eye candy they are objecting to?

Lol Maz....... as long as you are getting some of the benefits of this lovely weather!

BC... maybe someone thought my talking of canulas and missing hair was inappropriate? And I never even mentioned a Brazilian!! ;¬))

Ann, you are absolutely right, they should have let Taff know why they were deleting it. There were no T & C's broken in it at all.... and if someone has reported it, well, shame on them because there but for the grace of God go they.
I would like them spend a week working on the ward and see what courage is shown by so many people. Then they should hang their heads in shame,
Oh I know the grammar is dreadful... but the sentiments are real!!

AnninGlos Report 20 Apr 2009 17:29

I am still waiting for my reply. Really can't believe this, I do hope somebody didn't get it deleted, not that they would come forward and admit it if they did. And if somebody did, I hope they never need support on here.



MrDaff Report 20 Apr 2009 17:35

~~~~~~ waves to Ann. I have stopped holding my breath... I was going a lovely shade of purple, lol

*frets* wonder where Taff is... I am dying to know who she has been meeting...... you kept that quiet, Taff, lolol


Daff xxxx


AnninGlos Report 20 Apr 2009 17:38

I thought she (or rather they) would have been on here today. Very curious of course!!!!

Still no e mail for me. I sooo want to reply to it too!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~back to Daff.

Hi Daff,
Pleased to hear that you had a lovely day yesterday. I am sure that it rmade your Mum's birthday really happy, having you there with them all, and that you are slowly getting better.

Also pleased that you have had a good rest today. Take care!
Best wishes, Sallie.


Mazfromnorf Report 20 Apr 2009 19:02

how sad what was rthere to complain about ?


AnninGlos Report 20 Apr 2009 21:17

but, and I am really puzzled here, if somebody complained, what did they find offensive, or inappropriate. It was just a thread to keep daff's spirits up. thank goodness it worked but it has been there for 6 months so why now?

My OH suggested it was somebody jealous of the attention they were not getting.



MrDaff Report 20 Apr 2009 22:39

mmm Ann.... R has said exactly the same thing... to *lose* one thread might be accidental, but two is more than that... Why on earth would anyone be jealous of what I had..... I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy, leave alone someone sad enough to report it, lol!!

Oh well, ill winds and biting on bums and all that... what goes around comes around, I do hope that IF this thread was reported, that person has the grace to feel ashamed of themselves. And I do hope they are never needing the support for the reasons I did... still do, cos it ain't over just yet, lol!!

Love and night night... am back to bed, lol!!

Hi Daff, you are so naughty doing too much and tiring yourself out, we don't want you poorly again now you are doing so well.

I better not make any comments on the responses from gr or will end up on an enforced holiday but I am sure you can guess what I said when I read the sorry excuses for removing the threads.
Some saddo here somewhere who might one day realise how good the support threads especially are to people.

Went to Homebase yesterday and then b & q, now I am happy to look round for a while, altho get frustrated that I can't afford all the things I like, but o.h. is such a ditherer and never stays where he says he will be, I think I have mentioned before that I have been known to ask for a call to be put over the tannoy for him lol, as traipsing up and down aisles looking for him is so tiring. Can't ever find him when he disappears in supermarkets cos he isn't tall enough to show up over the shelves so you can imagine how difficult it is in diy places with shelves to the ceilings. Despite me getting him a mobile phone for Christmas over a year ago, he doesn't take it out with him or if he does, forgets to switch it on so I can't even track him down that way lol
I did find him eventually, and got him to buy me a coffee in the cafeteria which to my surprise was still open at past 6pm so I sat and relaxed while he shopped, well browsed, he didn't buy much but has some info now on garden gates etc and also what wood he wants to buy for shelving in the bathroom, oh and we did get a roll of wallpaper that will go half way up the walls, and got it reduced from almost a tenner to under £7 so that was good. Today he is planning to get on with the tiling, he said he couldn't get motivated yesterday so watched tv till I got up and chivvied him into action lol

Hope the weather stays bright so you can sit outside some of the time Daff and everyone, it was nice here but a cold wind, and got very chilly come evening. Oh well, it is only April.

love and hugs

Good morning dear Daff:-) Well I have gotten over my anger at the deletion and all I will say is, how very shabby of GR and I still maintain that it was a 'glitch' in their system, as to think that someone on here could report such a lovely thread is...unthinkable!

Anyway, hope you had a restful night, Daff. Have woken up to brilliant sunshine and fingers crossed let it last for a few more days. Enjoy your day however you spend it:-) mwahhh to all...BC¬XX


Taff Report 21 Apr 2009 09:46

Morning Daff, just sent this off to Julie and Laura.
Thank you both for your responses, Sorry but neither are acceptable.
Firstly, I dont expect the thread to be reinstated, I have asked for the
reasons why it was deleted? And what t&c'
s were broken?
Due to the duration of the thread (approx,. 6 months), it would appear that
by your criteria "Get well " wishes are" not acceptable.
I wait with anticipation for your reply.
AKA Taff.
