friendly :-S what planet are you on?


JustJohn Report 1 Jul 2013 09:12

Lynda. :-D :-D :-D Wondered why my bottom was so sore. Respect = manners = etiquette. It all starts with balancing peas on your fork. Everything else follows. ;-)

Mind, a quick look at Cynthia's post on Christian thread each morning (usually posted before 9am) would help us all, I think.

*nods head and agrees with Lynda.

Friendly John? I don' know how conversations go in you r household, but if some of the comments made on here over the weekend went on in mine, someone would be sent bed with a slapped bum and no tea, but thankfully because we all respect each other, that never happens.


JustJohn Report 1 Jul 2013 08:34

I have been remarkably clear of reports this weekend. But have noticed most of reports were errors because of posts duplicating.

Might be an idea if Genes (when they review reports today) just give everyone the benefit of doubt and not uphold any reports or castigate anyone who has made erroneous reports. :-) It was quite a friendly weekend for a change, but it must look as if WW3 broke out by number of reports ;-)

Well it's a wonder it's not been me RR'd as I keep duplicating everything other day I had 5 duplicates Someone even managed to get in between 2 of the posts and answered first one while I cleared it away and then someone else was asking how first person could answer post after hers etc etc etc.... It wasn't me honest it's GR :-S

Good morning everybody - sun is out in force today - Lovely weather - hot, hot, hot just like in Africa. Must be to hot for the birds as well - no dawn chorus.

In answer to your question> No it won't have ramifications on Carol..

1) The team will see it for what it was... a mistake... :-S


2) Carol is not one that goes around getting her posts reported. ;-)

Persie :-)

Ooops here we go again - rr'd for what this time


CupCakes Report 30 Jun 2013 16:35

Maggie - no, no, no - wouldn't have done it otherwise. Just a lot of duplicate posts this past few days.

Was just testing it out the problem with some ..........posts. Imagine a board nasty has referred both posts - GR will think they are bonkers because I've already sent a message to show them


maggiewinchester Report 30 Jun 2013 15:16

Hmm, I've never reported a post, but surely reporting an innocent duplicate post is a bit of an overkill?
Won't it have ramifications on the person who posted it?


JustJohn Report 30 Jun 2013 13:56

NanaSue Tsk Tsk. If something is worth saying once, it is worth saying twice and three times. Yet another problem with site - and it is bound to cause problems when certain posters are just waiting to pounce on anything ;-)


CupCakes Report 30 Jun 2013 13:52

Carol - hands up it was me - just thought it would be quicker - forgot it was Sunday so no action until tomorrow. Happened to me last week - had a great deal of trouble deleting 12 duplicate posts. <3 <3


JustJohn Report 30 Jun 2013 13:44

Poor Carol. I think some are getting zapped by "friendly fire". :-)


AnnCardiff Report 30 Jun 2013 12:50

it was probably the site anyway - happening over and over again these multiple postings :-S
