This thread is about Dangerssprout's OP about it getting RR'd NOT you shouting,screaming and preaching to any of us..

Please keep your opinions to yourself.


supercrutch Report 19 Dec 2012 19:14

Please take your arguments elsewhere, this thread has had enough attention thank you and I am not going to be responsible for WW3 as I am the OP.


JustJohn Report 19 Dec 2012 19:08

FGS There are 41 Police Commissioners in England and Wales - 37 in England and 4 in Wales. That is 1.5 million people per commissioner. Were they supposed to doorstep you?

Certainly in Wales, there were radio programmes every day on Radio Wales, there were articles every day in the Western Mail. And loads of stuff on Internet. And links were given here by members.

I would apologise for being a bit cross and using the words I did with AnnC. But I always vote, and so do all my family. However hopeless the cause, it is important to vote imho.

I cannot understand why each candidate was not allowed to post a leaflet about him or herself. They paid £5000 deposit. Where did all that money go :-S


KempinaPartyhat Report 19 Dec 2012 18:58

Ann at this moment in my life ....I really dont care what he thinks ....

Now like you if the person people whom were standing came forward and gave their points I would have take note and voted!


KempinaPartyhat Report 19 Dec 2012 18:51

I totally agree with you Ann


Bobtanian Report 19 Dec 2012 18:47

where's Arnie when you need him?


AnnCardiff Report 19 Dec 2012 18:44

I didn't vote as I had no idea who was standing and if they couldn't be bothered to make themselves known or put a leaflet through my door, they can go and whistle


KempinaPartyhat Report 19 Dec 2012 18:43

Ann didnt you vote ?? well done Hun coz I couldnt really see what we were voting for anyway ....we the public are never listened to in police matters

Oh I didnt vote either


KempinaPartyhat Report 19 Dec 2012 18:40

I think Gr should put up a "poke" button coz really John I dont give a flying **** what you think AND as your nasty words are only there to poke me into an arguement .......

I decline your offer


AnnCardiff Report 19 Dec 2012 18:39

well I thought it was more than despicable of you to say I was too idle to vote in the Police Commissioners recent election but I certainly didn't say so - I just reported you for that comment and my reporting was upheld and your posting was deleted so don't come all holier than thou - it doesn't wash


JustJohn Report 19 Dec 2012 18:32

AnnC. No, I don't. All this ridiculous reporting of OP's and threads and then their subsequent reinstatement is probably what has driven a very good and quite popular poster off the boards. And for Sue to have to fight 22 reports for no reason I could see was despicable.

However much we dislike a poster or an opinion, we should read the T & C's first.


AnnCardiff Report 19 Dec 2012 18:23

despicable??? :-S :-S rather a strong word don't you think?


Muffyxx Report 19 Dec 2012 18:23

I wouldn't have rr'd the post myself..but would like to say well done to Kemp for having the b*lls to own up to it.....we moan when folk don't so I think a bit of respect for her honesty is in order here whether we agree with the RR or not. x


JustJohn Report 19 Dec 2012 17:56

Kempina. Thankyou for being so truthful.

Personlly I find your report despicable. It was not a thread meant to cause trouble. Had it done that, I would have removed it without your help.

What I find really bad about you and the other reporter(s) were that you went for the OP. Unless somebody in the OP has broken the T & C's (which I plainly hadn't, neither had Sue or AnnC) then nobody knows which way thread will go or who will contribute.

"Shame we cant delete people" is, I hope, an attempt at being funny :-S


AnnCardiff Report 19 Dec 2012 17:30

depends which list


KempinaPartyhat Report 19 Dec 2012 17:29

Yes I understand that but if I delete a post and then it looks like I made trouble I,m quite able to stand up and say I did it

Shame we cant delete people isnt it ...but think ladys and gents !! we wouldnt have him at the top of the list would we?


Kay???? Report 19 Dec 2012 17:24
