It was the words 'holier-than-thou' which caught my eye.

I do hope you don't mean the Christian Thread when you say you can only see one 'holier-than-thou' thread remaining NanaSue :-(

A daily prayer is posted on there for those who wish to look at is certainly not obligatory viewing and, hopefully, doesn't come over as being 'h-t-t-'.

Well Rose I was wondering, I think NS is a bit of a tinker, she knows that her thread was deleted by GR, but just wanted to come back and say about other threads that she thinks may have "disappeared" so she doesn't feel a bit daft for posting the one she did. She just wanted to brighten our Friday, well done NS you made me laugh.



Potty Report 28 Jun 2013 15:29

Oh dear, oh dear! Somebody has posted a link to this thread on the Genealogy Chat Board (to show how many posts some members have made). This is another thread that will not show the site in a good light to new members


~Lynda~ Report 28 Jun 2013 15:49

It's only NS having a laugh Potty, she isn't serious, she can't be :-D


AnnCardiff Report 28 Jun 2013 15:50

well said Cynthia - perhaps NanaSue would like to come back and explain what a "holier than thou" thread is


AnnCardiff Report 28 Jun 2013 15:50

I love your avatar Lynda - cute :-D


~Lynda~ Report 28 Jun 2013 15:52

It's of me and hubby at our local tennis club Ann, I won of course :-D


AnnCardiff Report 28 Jun 2013 15:54

course you did - I can see you have a great back hand


~Lynda~ Report 28 Jun 2013 15:58

The front ain't so bad either :-D


AnnCardiff Report 28 Jun 2013 15:59

have to ask - are you anorexic at all ;-)


~Lynda~ Report 28 Jun 2013 16:00

No, but I am on diet :-D


DazedConfused Report 28 Jun 2013 16:10

Looking forward to the weekend!!!! ;-)


AnnCardiff Report 28 Jun 2013 16:12

yippee - my post has been reinstated so you can all see what I wrote was not nasty at all and GR obviously don't think so either - thank you GR


Bobtanian Report 28 Jun 2013 16:25

""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. ""

but dont you think this anonyminity causes upsets? discussions by PM's?aspersions raised and wrong accusations?
In the recent post by AnnC that RR to MY mind was just nit picking...........nothing out of hand said there, at all..........
this site at times makes me think of an old time fishing village where all the wives hangover the garden fences gossiping about who does what ~(or doesnt)


supercrutch Report 28 Jun 2013 16:28

I didn't get my knuckles rapped by GR, not a peep from them, a few friends frowned upon me..lolol

I do not watch Wimbledon, I cannot get out into the garden I have been writing loads of letters re the house move....exciting eh?

Tomorrow I shall be busy watching the Lions and F1 qualifying then directing the removal of duplicated items in the house to the garage before I advertise them for sale.

Sunday we pick up eldest and take her to visit youngest and hubby and our 2 grandchildren :-D

How much time will I have for GR? ...not a lot ;-) but if something interesting/controversial pops up my radar will ping ;-) :-P


AnnCardiff Report 28 Jun 2013 16:31

you could have a garage sale on here Sue :-D


~Lynda~ Report 28 Jun 2013 16:35

Bob I don't think it's the fishing wives that hang over the fence, have a look at the men's gossip & comments that's posted on here, make your hair curl it would ;-)

Rambling Rose Report 28 Jun 2013 16:52

Bob I agree anonymity often is the cause of upset, and not just in the obvious ways of being able to report without saying you have, but the 'honesty' ways where a person changes board name with intent to deceive
( like the person who thinks posts made under a previous name can't be spotted as being from the same person as their 'new' name lol)

But the alternative is to say you have reported, and then receive intimidating, or frankly aggressive PMs saying 'you shouldn't have done it, you're in a gang' etc...or worse. That is why most people won't just ASK someone to delete a post and resort to the report button in the first place ( excluding the 'mad as a box of frogs' posters who would report anything if it suits ;-) )

Re the village wives over the fence...there's also a fair amount of testosterone induced posturing from the male contingent I think ;-)


AnnCardiff Report 28 Jun 2013 17:10

when on the odd occasion I have reported a posting I have said so, no big deal really is it - if you feel you've done right, well just say so


AnnCardiff Report 28 Jun 2013 17:12

thank you Carole - appreciated
