Dont tell me they were reported as well...someone needs to give their head a wobble :-D


SheilaWestWilts Report 2 Dec 2012 22:02

Divine intervention.... :-0


aivlyS Report 2 Dec 2012 22:05

Well think this proves that is not a good idea to allow members to RR threads ... obviously they like being monitor a bit too much ...


AnnCardiff Report 2 Dec 2012 22:05

they were brilliant as usual


aivlyS Report 2 Dec 2012 22:09

Yes they were Ann , think someone was jealous

Without being reported, threads are disappearing, such as Mersey's book one:


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 2 Dec 2012 22:19

There must be a glitch - after all the OP on Hayley's make-up and Andrew's popcorn threads were RR'd, and no action either way has been taken.

Well, hopefully its a glitch. There was nothing wrong about Eldrick's as a stand alone satirical story, and who could disapprove of Mersey's?


JustJohn Report 2 Dec 2012 22:52

Didn't someone say there was a new member of staff coming in to moderate.

It may be that he or she has been left on own over weekend. It was a bit fraught on Friday evening with the ###### and then the poster who must be anonymous being banned.

A bit like being a referee of MKDons vs Wimbledon AFC.

Perhaps be sorted in morning when others get back to office??


SueMaid Report 2 Dec 2012 22:54

Just think about who may have RR'd Eldrick's thread. It's not exactly rocket science - and envy takes a large part :-(


maggiewinchester Report 2 Dec 2012 22:57


missed them :-|


aivlyS Report 2 Dec 2012 23:00

Agree with Suemaid.


AnnCardiff Report 2 Dec 2012 23:00

well I do hope he posts episode three cos it was getting really interesting - and hysterical as usual


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 2 Dec 2012 23:03

With a bit of luck, he's saved a copy and can repost. We can but hope!


JustJohn Report 2 Dec 2012 23:44

I was out at church and missed Parts 1 & 2 altogether :-( :-(

Ditto DET and AnnC :-D


aivlyS Report 2 Dec 2012 23:56

And how do you know what time they went up if you never saw them ?


supercrutch Report 3 Dec 2012 00:00

FGS I had read them both to OH who was chuckling as much as me.

Please Eldrick do carry on with them.

Adoring fan in the Valleys :-D


JustJohn Report 3 Dec 2012 00:02

FGS, leave it purleese. 4 months is a marathon of clever quips, aivlyS.

I came in about 8pm, had my supper, chatted, looked at threads. Looked a bit surprised. Then realised more threads had been zapped and peeps were talking about Eldrick Parts 1 & 2. I assumed those threads had been put up and lost between about 4pm and 8pm.

Yes, I missed them and love to read anything by Eldrick. Like most, I enjoy his posts (genuinely sincere face)


aivlyS Report 3 Dec 2012 00:15

clever quips? well that is rather better than the stuff you have posted about me ............and you are the only one protesting that you was out


JustJohn Report 3 Dec 2012 10:26

Perhaps somebody could enlighten me what Eldrick posted in Parts 1 and 2.

I was deep into Advent last evening and a rather difficult passage from Luke Chapter 21 (verses 20-36) at the time. But I love to read Eldrick - even if not always to my Christian tastes. ;-)
