So sorry GeordieinNorfolk for getting your name wrong! My thoughts are the same though. I will edit my post - but just for the name !


GinN Report 3 Jul 2013 20:53

Thanks, everybody!

Joeva - I'm GeordieinNorfolk, - GeordiePride is the other Tyensider, and is made of sterner stuff than me! :-D :-D

Glad to see you have decided to stay on the boards. :-)

You said in your O/P that it was because of just one person's presence on here that had made up your mind that you had had enough.

To my mind, if it was just one person I found so irritating I would read their post and and not even bother to reply. In my opinion it is when certain others start to reply to the original posting that it gets nasty and it is the snide, smart Alec remarks that cause all the friction.

Just my opinion. Welcome back and may long you stay.

Honest Jo

Edited - Wrong Geordie !

Ahh Good Great to have you back....and yes the Boards don't let you go easily once they have you so beware :-D


GinN Report 3 Jul 2013 19:18

Well, I'm afraid I've succumbed! Thank you so much for your lovely messages. I honestly didn't expect all that, thought people would just think - oh, well, there goes another one!
So, I'm just coming back in a quiet way, keeping clear of any controversial sites. I have missed the boards, you were right!
Love from Lynda xx <3


Wend Report 1 Jul 2013 19:51

I don't want you to go Lynda - I shall miss that cheeky little face xx :-)

Add - I felt rather like you do for a few months after I joined, but then things improved and I've since made so many really good friends on here and met a few of them. What's been going on lately is just a *blip* imo - hopefully things will take a turn for the better again. I'm always optimistic ;-) :-D

Hiyaaaaa GeordieN glad you may have had a rethink :-) <3 Mwoochios


GinN Report 1 Jul 2013 19:02

Well, what can I say! I've been out all day, and just thought I'd have a look - see, it's become a habit! You are all so lovely, and I never expected such a reaction to my leaving. I'm not blaming anyone, and that "certain person" has never upset me personally - nobody has.
I will step back for a while,and see how things go. There are many people who I know I'll miss, so won't say "never again"! My subs won't run out untill October, so I'll look in now and again.A big thanks to those of you who have sent PMs, and I will reply.
Stepping away for now, but remember - behave yourselves, 'cos I'm watching you!

With affection, Lynda xx


Muffyxx Report 1 Jul 2013 12:04

Bye Lynda.........I will most likely be sitting out for a while when my subs are due later this month too...I know how you feel...take care x

GeordieinNorfolk I know that a few people on here tend to spoil it for others, but the good outways the bad. This site has a lot of good people on here, some I am lucky enough to call friends now. Give them a chance & you will see that the few idiots don't matter because the ones the do matter are worth it, & are worth being here for just as they are for you. Just take a little time out & think about things. Thats all I got to say on it really. ttfn
