Seems to me that with the latest schism on here it is not worth coming on ( yes I know if I don't like it I can 'go away 'or other less polite phrases ending in 'off' !).

But I do feel it might soon be going the same way as the saga forums, too much trouble for the parent company to keep going. Which will be a shame for the people who need the company, and the window on the world that they may not be able to play a more active role in.

So, said my say, going to boil my head in advance of anyone suggesting it :-)

I think it's become increasingly nasty over the last week or so

Rose, all I ask is a level playing field, not the wind behind those who attend church and a howling gale in the faces of those that don't.

I think the board is more likely to go as a result of the continuous RR'ing than any disagreement behind them...that's what will be taking up the lion's share of the teams time in relation to this board..but then again...if they continue to allow free members to RR then there's nothing anyone but them can do about it.

it's pretty tame on here compared to some of the scooter forums

them guys really know how to snipe and flame
1 forum had to make it members only to post just to get some sort of order so all the banned went onto a new forum to slag the old forum members off from there

makes for an interesting nights reading sometimes though

I think some people don't understand the meaning of the word PUBLIC.
This is a public forum for paying members to use - yes all of us who post have paid.
For some people to start a thread and 'claim' it as 'theirs' strikes me as totally against the word PUBLIC.
This is also a 'General Chat' thread - for just that - General Chat.
If I start a thread all about frocks, and someone takes the mickey because they like shorts, have I got the right to have a strop, tell them to get off 'my thread' as it's about frocks?
I don't think so.

If I just want to talk about frocks, surely I should join a frock forum.

FGS why does no one ever post a thread about frocks I'd love a thread about frocks.....I want to talk about frocks but not tonight Maggie I am trying to go to bed and sort of the flipping silly new PC I think I need a new one..........Sorry Rose for going off topic, it seem that people have been rather thetching over the past few days and lots of sniping going on so for some members it must be really tiresome even I have noticed and after 2 weeks in the Carribean I am well chilled :-D

I've just come back from Portugal, and a night/day in Seville.

Aren't blue skies nice :-D :-D

I was also reminded of the light in the sky........oh yes!!! Sun :-D :-D

PS. I don't wear frocks, or have display towels....


George Report 11 Feb 2013 23:23

George you dont have to wear them you can admire them you must of seen plenty of pretty frocks......

Yes the sun was lovely getting to know him again..... :-D


Wend Report 11 Feb 2013 23:27

You can talk about 'frocks' or suchlike anytime as far as I'm concerned Maggie and I will respond if I'm interested. I just don't like some people who come on here talking 'at' me (us) about something, who couldn't care less if we're interested or not, and that has been going on for 6 months now.

Now, about my bunions . . . . .
