I can't do an Attenborough voice but if I could.......

"if you look closely, adjusting your eyes to the darkness you may be able to spot the lesser arar bird and it's close relation the greater arar bird. They are only to be found during the night time as they are nervous creatures, seemingly wanting to remain undetected.

They usually quickly exit their nest and feed their habit and return to the safety of their hiding place.

Only a few months ago they were thought to be extinct, as the local human population considered them pests. I have managed to film and document two tonight and will inform the local tribal chief of their location so they may be dealt with before they breed"

Aren't we lucky to have them in our midst :-D

Morning All, It is a great pity that someone actually stays up into the night, just to RR, what people have posted. What a sad and lonely, bitter and twisted being, this person is.
I despair, I truely do
What is it coming to.

Maybe they don't, 'stay up' that is. Just maybe they are in a different time zone.

However I suggest our intrepid explorer is right, they are indiginous to our country and suffer from trigger or quiver finger poor souls. ;-)

I understand what you are saying AnninGlos, but I rather think this is a 'homegrown' pestalence (sp). LOL

I admitted to the first giving my reason:

After considering your request we believe the content to be unacceptable and outside of the terms and conditions and message board guidelines of the site. This content has therefore been removed.

The others are nothing to do with me. I logged out early last night & have not long come back on.

I wondered when someone would suggest that it could be someone in a different time zone. Strangely I personally have better things to do with my Sundays than sit and RR posts.

Could have been anyone, anywhere. I was up until 4 am. My own feeling is UK based when the assumption is everyone is tucked up in their beds.

That's just speculation. None of us know.

SueMaid Report 10 Feb 2013 10:44

Trouble is - speculation often leads to finger pointing.

That's true. However John has solved the mystery in his last post. It was divine intervention and now all of us who were RRd will be redeemed.

As if!!!!!!!!!

What if we don't want to be redeemed? ;-)

Some of us are very open about who we rr. Personally, I am fairly careful not to kee-jerk and then I always tell the whole thread I have rr'd. Usually for what I consider abuse (and so far they have been upheld). Get lambasted often, but it is then Genes who review - not fellow posters.

And I have been reported a few times. And usually the reporter has had the good grace to tell me they have done it and why.

Those posts reported last night may have annoyed and/or upset people (I couldn't care less, incidentally). But cannot see where they broke T & C's. Unless they mentioned L*rpak butter in recipes ;-) So am sure they will be reinstated and your virginal status will be retained :-)

Edit. Very troll, SueC :-D ;-)

Wouldn't it be better for them just to say-"I don't like that comment" ,however if it's done out of spite they're just soooooo sadddd.

They want finger pointing but the thing is most people who are getting rr'd regularily have a fair idea who's doing it. I just find it annoying 'cause it destroys threads.
