I dont need to seek attention John I can commannd it and often do at my own pleasure ,do bare that in mind thank you :-D


Julia Report 18 Nov 2012 17:08

I said that I found your remarks offensive and abusive, not the other 7,999,999. I can'r speak for them, only myself.
And, anything less thatn a gentleman would turn the thread around to say someone was attention seeking, instead of holding their hand up, and accepting they had been abusive. and offensive

AnninGlos Report 18 Nov 2012 17:02

If you name the friends you are talking about Suzanne maybe they will pop in and tell you or somebody can tell you.


Suzanne Report 18 Nov 2012 17:00

hey who turned this thread into the JOHN show???? :-D :-D :-D
no offence JOHN :-D

This thread was about old friends,,were are you all :-(


JustJohn Report 18 Nov 2012 16:49

Sheessh!!!!!!!! I was referring to MYSELF as an idiot. I do not mind poking fun at myself and I do enjoy teasing as well. :-D As many of you do from time to time.

It may be attention seeking, thought I doubt it. And I read carefully what I write before I send.

And I do chuckle at your reactions sometimes. There are bound to be other idiots as well as me in an 8 million Genes population. Why do you assume I am referring to you personally and not another of the 7,999,999? I think you may just be trying to seek attention. ;-)

I dont think John is an idiot far from it, I think he is an attention seeking lonely man who likes to turn every thread around to be about him, as he is doing with this one, I dont find him interesting or offensive, even when he sulks and starts whinning on about the perfect 10 which normally indicates he has at some point during the day been put soundly in his place. :-D

My fault for introducing the word 'idiots', I wasn't thinking of anyone who posts on the board nowadays lol ( though my own inability to 'tolerate fools gladly' has at times in the past made me mutter 'idiot' at the screen) is not the worst term, it even sometimes holds an affectionate tone.
I am at times an 'idiot' yesterday when I returned from the post office still carrying the letters I went to post :-S


AnninGlos Report 18 Nov 2012 15:56

I do think that John was referring to himself there. John, I think you need to read what you have written before you press submit then you won't have the 'anti John' army jumping on you.

UNREAL .........................................go in below the belt there John!!!!

Theres only one idiot here

Hi suzanne whom are you looking for ?


Julia Report 18 Nov 2012 15:43

So, "Idiots rule on these boards"

I think that remark is abit rich. It is offensive and abusive to say that about people on these boards, and for one, am offended. It is also against the T & C, to offend and abuse people on here.

JustJohn Report 18 Nov 2012 15:18

:-D :-D :-D

Idiots rule on these boards. Thank goodness you are patient with all of us.

Please stay, Rose. I enjoy your smacks sometimes. And I think even the perfect ones do occasionally ;-)

Ohhh!!! Does "smacks" lead to an automatic rr. Was not meaning it in any bad way, honest. :-(

Rambling Rose Report 18 Nov 2012 15:05

You must be the 'exception that proves the rule' John lol... or looking at it another way, you should see how much MORE impatient I was in the past ;-)


JustJohn Report 18 Nov 2012 14:53

Rose I have not detected that you have got more patient with me :-( :-( :-(

No the board's not what it one has RRd me for ages, I haven't said the naughty word for years, I haven't been called names ( not to my face anyway lol) , no one has accused me of 'wanting to run GR'...No one has hacked my messages, or told me I am a bad mother, person, poster... even the few debates have not made me as bad tempered ( I may be getting more patient with idiots?) :-D

It is quieter, on all the boards, so it may be a general trend away from genealogy perhaps (less money for hobbies?)

As Ann says, it is the posters who make the boards, I hope there will be posters writing interesting, amusing or debateable topics long after 'we' are all gone lol, which will be next month in my case, (financial rather than disenchantment with the boards) which still have interest and friendship I think

How old do your friends have to be Suzanne? :-D

You and I have chatted a bit so dont if I am classed as one of your old friends, but have often shared a thread or 2 with you.

I dont give a toss who posts what or what they think of me and my friends on here, I can ignore them agreed with them or simply tell them I don't,I will have my say like it or lump it, this board is for everyone :-D
