Not been on the boards for a couple of days - early morning had a peep. So surprised that so many threads are not there. The interesting ones don't seem to exist anymore. Where is Mr Magoo's daily joke, JLH and the brains.

Even the so called holier-than-thou threads have gone - wooshed away - there is only one I can find.

Learned something amazing as well - a concept that has really blown my mind. There are members on here who copy everything they write on the threads so they can reference back or paste back in a debate where they are determined to prove a point. How mean spirited.

Have I missed something ..................... :-0 :-0

Hi NanaSue, I think someone must have had very itchy fingers, so many threads RR'd, dont know why if they read a thread that thy don't like, don't agtee with or feel that it is offensive they don't just leave it and read other threads, don't RR it, others find Mr. M's jokes funny, and a good laugh is the best way to start the day.
Have a good day. :-D :-D :-D

the boards have been lovely for a few days now - no aggro whatsoever - presumably because a few people have been missing - it's been an absolute pleasure to come on here - let's hope it lasts but I'm not holding my breath

For goodness sake!

I guess it IS Friday :-(

I will C & P some of my posts and keep them on word if I think they will get whooshed without good reason (i.e. it's me that posted) so I can repost. Something wrong with that? I don't believe there is.

Because Bob if that were the case, the fallout would lead to unprecedented nastiness between opposing factions ...usually by PM where it can't be seen.

I know this because I have stated when I report. Usually I would rather "leave someone enough rope to hang themself" if their post is a deliberately provocative one....


" There are members on here who copy everything they write on the threads so they can reference back or paste back in a debate where they are determined to prove a point. How mean spirited."..

.hmmm maybe, but I think there are rather MORE who have been forced into the position of having to copy everything someone ELSE writes in order to base their comments on accurate details when said other person has edited or deleted their antagonistic comments. so they read as 'Miss innocent' .

What!............. I've not even read it - must have been nasty for it to be rrr'd so soon.

Oh I'm back to my cakes for a while - need a special plate of creations for the mayor tomorrow. :-0

AnnCardiff Report 28 Jun 2013 11:26

no way was it nasty - this is roughly what I said -

the boards have been a pleasure to come on - no aggro - probably because a few people have not been here - let's hope it stays that way, but I'm not holding my breath

now why on earth would that be reportable

AnnCardiff

AnnCardiff Report 28 Jun 2013 11:28

if anyone considers that to be nasty and reportable, please tell me and I will delete it

ANN
I WOULD LIKE YOU TO PLEASE DELETE,TO MY MIND ITS AIMED AT A
CERTAIN PERSON

AnnCardiff

AnnCardiff Report 28 Jun 2013 11:38

it's aimed at no one on particular Dizzi - I would not do that - if someone can give me a definitive answer it will be deleted - had I intended to aim it at someone in particular I would be guilty of causing disharmony and as I said, the boards have been a pleasure to come on - I don't want that changed

AnnCardiff

AnnCardiff Report 28 Jun 2013 11:40

if anyone else requests it's deletion I shall do so - I would just like others to see the gist of what I posted

a definitive answer as to how it was a nasty posting

supercrutch

supercrutch Report 28 Jun 2013 11:49

I can't see a valid reason to RR it Ann.

I'm with our Rose.....I always say when I have RRd something but rarely do because I think that some posts betray the true nature of the poster and I would rather those stay up too.
