Roy. Am not hounding anyone. It just seems a bit strange that we have had reports all over the place last 3 weeks. I think I know who has caused most if not all of it, by reading between the lines of the more informed posts.

But I cannot see that suggesting it is a man for 3 weeks is very helpful, when I think most suspect it may not be.

But it will hopefully all be sorted soon, and fingers of suspicion will not need to be pointed at those who are totally innocent.

Ooh John you know who has caused most of the RRing, I am amazed, do you have a crystal ball? Did the chicken bones fall in a particular pattern? Perhaps your tea grouts spelt out a name?

I have many ideas but none that I would place a bet on.

I HAVE to trust GR to ban them once and for all. However, they can use another account if they have one, use a bogus account or even get their friend/s to continue.

After the thread was reinstated then GR having "reviewed" it, they should remove the ability for it to be reported for a second time,

Glad to see GR have reinstated this again asap

Roy. Totally agree :-D Perhaps now Sue and everybody else can sprout forth without looking over our shoulders for the next rr.

So often the reporter goes for OP when it is plainly obvious to the other 7,999,999 paying members and non-paying members that theer is nothing wrong with OP. :-( :-(

Do you not think that the best way to make something attractive, is to "ban" it?

I mean tell someone that alcohol/smoking is bad for you, only encourages the urge to try it out?

similarly RR-ing only attracts MORE comment than there would be otherwise? so is it someone "attracting" attention, to certain threads?

All I know is that I do so hope that whoever it is will stop all their messing about.

We now have one week to go to Christmas and I have got far too much to do without checking in every half hour to see what the latest shenanigans have been.

Having been ill for the last eight weeks I have done little enough as it is. I now need a good few days to do shopping, new crockery maybe, or I could just borrow Sues ? There are presents to wrap and a house to clean and tidy.

So maybe in this Season of Goodwill our Phantom Finger Waggler will give it a rest and let us all get on.

See. You later, if I don't get whooshed. M.

Morning lovelies :-D

I have been assured that the malicious reporter will be banned from GR. I am getting fed up with 'now you see it, now you don't' :-P

Thank you for being supportive, I send you all a mince pie

:-D :-D

Now please stop the speculation as to who it might be, that will cause more trouble and I don't want to see any friends getting a holiday.

Well somebody either has a Sue fixation or doesn't like sprouts. Who knows, I just wish they would see how childish it all is and I wonder, if their name was known would they be proud to be associated with such juvenile behaviour? :-S

Allan Report 18 Dec 2012 10:37

lol Bob, more fastest finger stinks: the speed of RR'ing causes the flesh to melt with a resultant nasty smell :-S

Well if they have a Sue fixation there are a few of us on the boards.

I think it's the veggie angle,they were made to eat Sprouts when they were little and
hated them, now anything to do with sprouts they don't like..

As for the childish games they are playing they shouiuld pack it in and get a life or a new hobby.

I would like to know just how many accounts they have..

Can't you just picture the scene?

A dark neglected room - webs hang from every corner. The smell of neglected cat is in the air.

Remains of micro-waved meals for one lie scattered around.

Empty plastic bottles that once held cheap cider cover what used to be a carpet.

A dusty figure sits hunched over the keyboard cackling in a demented manner and waiting for a post from the sprout.

A cry of triumph and the crooked finger strikes "report".


Has anyone seen Gollum in the new Hobbit film?
