As has been said by others, this thread is not likely to encourage new people to use the boards.

Can I suggest either that NS deletes it or that nobody else posts to it so that it will disappear off the current board.

I am very annoyed that the unpleasantness that sometimes occurs on this board has been exported to the Genealogy Chat board - the thread has absolutely nothing to do with Genealogy!


Porkie_Pie Report 23 Apr 2013 15:04

NS Was asked to delete it and also that it was on the wrong board in the first place

blimey, it's like an epidemic lol


Cynthia Report 23 Apr 2013 15:10

Can you be vaccinated against Whooshing?


Potty Report 23 Apr 2013 15:11

Yes, I saw those posts, Roy. I just think it should now be ignored and allowed to die - which is why I started this rather than posting on the original thread.

Stand in an orderly queue....snaps rubber gloves on :-D :-D gets humungous needle out of metal casing :-D :-D


eRRolSheep Report 23 Apr 2013 15:15


Anyway it's Tuesday. I thought Monday was whooshing day.


'Emma' Report 23 Apr 2013 15:17

I agree with you Potty, such a shame this has spread
to Genealogy Chat Board.



Mersey Report 23 Apr 2013 15:21

Fun part aside, I do think it is all rather silly and no need for it....thats my opinion....


Porkie_Pie Report 23 Apr 2013 15:22

Errol, You are correct, Did you not notice the Whooshing thread was posted on MONDAY ;-)

Roy :-D

Potty, The same reason I stopped posting on the thread


Kuros Report 23 Apr 2013 15:24

Errol, would you please consider removing your comment about the measles epidemic? I'm living right next to it and so many families are suffering and there has been one associated death to date. It's distressing for all of us.


eRRolSheep Report 23 Apr 2013 15:35

Although I disagree I have amended so as not to upset you and people affected by measles.


PollyinBrum Report 23 Apr 2013 16:04

Flippin Heck, I have never looked on here before, its like living in war torn Beirut. I am off to get my flack jacket


Kuros Report 23 Apr 2013 16:12

Thank you, Errol, I appreciate that. It's a bit too close to home for many of us.



AnnCardiff Report 23 Apr 2013 16:23

NanaSue should delete that posting ASAP - what on earth must people think? those who never go near the Chat board - they must think we are all arguing all the time and they will be dissuaded from ever joining in all the fun we have


Cynthia Report 23 Apr 2013 16:26

Hi Kuros,

I almost put a thread up asking if anyone was affected by the epidemic in Wales. As you can see from my avatar, it's something I'm interested in :-)

Could discuss further, but don't want to side track this thread...... :-D


'Emma' Report 23 Apr 2013 16:38

I second that Ann.



SylviaInCanada Report 23 Apr 2013 16:40

Unfortunately, some people never listen to good ideas from others ........

............... such as that thread being on the wrong Board and that it should be removed.

Some people believe they know more than others, and that they have more rights than others

These are the people who cause problems on this, and any other site

The only way for it to be removed from that Board would be for it to be reported to GR

I will not do that ................. as I, for some reason, seem to be her prime candidate for doing the reporting of her posts, that then are whooshed by GR

Not true!!

I've reported one of her posts for being offensive. That was weeks ago, and GR did not uphold my complaint, saying the post could remain on the thread.


AnnCardiff Report 23 Apr 2013 16:41

right - then I shall report it


nameslessone Report 23 Apr 2013 16:47

Well done AnnCardiff and well said SylviainCanada.
I haven't dared log in for 24 hours and have had to refrain myself from throwing something at the 'puter!!!
