Morning Daff & Mr Daff

Just in a bit of a panic here,was thinking about your last thread,
it wasn't deleted because of any of the jokes i put on was it ?
I did choose them carefully ,i didn't think they would upset anyone but you never know.
If it was removed for that reason all i can do is apologise from the bottom of my heart,
also if it was removed for that reason I wish the person who reported it had PM'd me and asked me to delete the offending joke,
i would of gladly removed it.

Good morning Daff and all:-) I am sure it wasn't your jokes BM, although I confess I don''t read jokes! lol...but the plot thickens! I was convinced nobody would be so petty minded as to report Daff's lovely thread....but? Have written to them three times but the answers were not satisfactory. Off to the park now, got up very late, so I hope you have a good day Daff and you feel a bit better today:-) mwahhh BCXX


Taff Report 23 Apr 2009 10:40

Bm, your jokes were not on the "iffy" side, If I felt the boarded on the "riskey" I would have pm'd you!
Aw well, at least Estelle gave me permission to start another one............

Morning Daff & Mr Daff:o)

Beautiful day again:o))
Hope you are feeling rested today and enjoy the weather, don't do too much!!!!!

Taff....well done for getting a helpful reply from Estelle, atleast we now have permission to keep this one going :o)))
l doubt it was the jokes, although l must admit l don't read them all either.
just someone with a different opinion, but it would have been much nicer to have pm'd the author first.

Hey ho....enjoy the day:o))

jude :o) xx


AnninGlos Report 23 Apr 2009 12:26

I too have had a reasonable reply from Estelle which says more or less what she said to Taff. that was after complaining about the other reply I got. I have always found Estelle to be very reasonable and able to reply without using 'stock' answers.

I have copied to here now.


MrDaff Report 23 Apr 2009 12:50

Morning all.... well, afternoon now, lol.

Huia, that made me giggle!!

BM, your jokes were fine... all the poems and songs you put up were attributed to the author /songwriter... no probs.

BC, enjoy your visit to the park... I have my sister coming over.. she is bringing me paviers (posh word for bricks, lol) so I breezily said... I'll do us lunch.... and the cupboards are almost bare, so I have to go and whisk sommat out of nothing!

Ann, Estelle always does give a *proper* reply, and not one that appears to be automated. I'll get R to copy the next bits... that can be his mission for a while, lololol

Hiya Jude.... I am chilling right out today...... and R has tomorrow and Monday off... I have a long list of jobs for him to go with the long weekend, lololol ;¬))

Taff, same as Ann, at least Estelle gave a semi-reasonable answer. I am trying to decipher one of her sentences though.... she seems to be saying that they keep a record of reported posts, but cannot give you a reason for deleting unless they know which post and author was reported. Have I got that right? A bit contradictory!!

But at least it is clear that there was a complaint. I wonder if the complainer would be brave enough to own up... and explain what was so offensive?

~~~~~~~~~ waves to Tina... hope you slept ok last night?

~~~~~~~~~ to Jen

Love and (((((((hugs)))))))

Daff xxxxxxx

how sad that someone should complain .perhaps they need some attention lol themselves .I enjoy posting on here Daff keeps us all going

for R's benefit copied to here.


Huia Report 23 Apr 2009 19:11

I had another reply, this time from Laura, directing me to the Guidelines for board use. My reply said that I was surprised that every posting on Daffs support thread breached the guidelines. I also added that my finger was going to be busy on the review button.



Huia Report 23 Apr 2009 19:38

OK, I have just skimmed through the guidelines.
First, we must use the English language. Now my name is a Maori name but I dont think there is an English name for the bird so how do I sign myself? And there are a few Welsh words that have been used on the thread and probably other languages too. But then English is an evolving language. If we were to use pure English few of us would understand what was being said.
Second, dont deviate from the topic of the message board. Now that means that we should all have been concentrating on Daff's treatment, not posting jokes and telling her how our day has been etc (not getting at you BM).
3rd, dont submit the same or similar material more than once. We have said 'hope you are doing fine' or words to that effect several times on the thread.

So Daffs support thread definitely breached the guidelines in several areas (pedantic morons that some people are).

Signed, No English name.


Huia Report 23 Apr 2009 19:40

I just hope the second word in the second lot of brackets up above does not get me banned.

No English name.


Mazfromnorf Report 23 Apr 2009 19:41

so we have to be come creative in our use of english .how many ways are there we can ask how daff is getting on then lol


Star Report 23 Apr 2009 19:50

Hi Daff cant quite believe what i have been reading up to this page. Glad to see you are still improving.

Well our plants are finally growing but oh forgot to label most of them and as neither of us are gardeners we are not sure what is growing where so will have a surprise lol. Think he may have over done the carrots as he didnt think they were growing so kept planting more and now they are going mad lol. Luckily all 4 of my children love carrots lol.

Now i work all day mon to fri dont get into Hereford town centre much whats left of it.

Dont go over doing it take care



Huia Report 23 Apr 2009 20:01

Tut tut, Star, you have deviated from the topic!

I have just hit review for the sticky re tree access at the top of General. I will probably now get banned, so if anybody wants my email addy you can ask Liz aka Purple. I trust her to vet all requests, just in case any nasties want it. But wait until I am banned before you ask.

No English name.


AnninGlos Report 23 Apr 2009 20:36
