Thanks Phil, hopefully you can sort this mess out :-)


Gins Report 30 Jun 2011 18:14

Cheeky mare Fanny....Id have asked at least a tenner for a granny ;-)


FannyByGaslight Report 30 Jun 2011 12:07

Do NOT believe her Phil.
Gins would sell her granny for a pound (if she were still alive)let alone you...


Gins Report 30 Jun 2011 09:22

Phil has replied to me bless him. I wish the person doing the reporing would realise that this causes a lot of work for the GR team

And if anyone would like to know where Phil is today, you can BACS me a tenner and I'll let you know and you can go meet him with all your problems ;-)

Just kidding Phil, your where abouts are safe with me!


Jonesey Report 30 Jun 2011 08:03

Thank you, Phil.

May I also thank you for your interest on other threads where you have taken the trouble to get involved and respond to other members concerns. Such management response had up until your arrival been sadly lacking on the site. Although I have no doubt that there will be times when you will perhaps regret sticking your head above the parapet, your input is very much appreciated.

Thank you, Phil



Persephone Report 30 Jun 2011 07:29

All, I have repsonded to Ginny by PM and we will be investigating it and resolving as soon as possible. As I've mentioned before this is definitely an area for review and improvement. I will post again here (most likely tomorrow since I'm off work today, err....I am meant to be at least) - regards Phil


Gins Report 30 Jun 2011 06:01 I havent had any notice about why the thread has been reported yet again, either from GR or the nasty little person that reported it

Ive sent Phil a message so hopefully he will be onto the case, he must be getting quite bleeped off with it all

So, if the person who is reporting all these none offensive threads would like to send me a PM explaining, I would be happy to reply ;-)


Persephone Report 30 Jun 2011 01:18


The title on the thread has changed and is not applicable to ancestry.... could this be the reason?

I have put this as my thoughts that this could be the reason on the big thread and elsewhere..



jax Report 30 Jun 2011 01:07

If you click as to report you get a choice of

Data protection

So what reason anyone could give for Ginnys thread I dont know??



Persephone Report 30 Jun 2011 01:00

If someone complains about a thread repeatedly do they have to give a different reason each time they complain....

I have never complained about a thread. I just move on.


SylviaInCanada Report 30 Jun 2011 00:56

This really is getting beyond a joke!

and it must also be annoying for Phil and the rest of the Support team


AmazingGrace08 Report 30 Jun 2011 00:15

Thanks Persie, lol no I really feel I am having a grumpy day today! You know when it feels like everything annoys you!

Must just need a glass of red so I can skulk in the corner and mutter to myself!


Persephone Report 30 Jun 2011 00:00

Gracie.... do not offer apologies, if people disagree so be it... but don't make apologies to them... They won't apologise to you for having a different opinion.

You vent away... I <3 a good vent!!


AmazingGrace08 Report 29 Jun 2011 23:42

This is so frustrating... I wonder if there is some way we can make a formal complaint to GR, I can't think of any grounds why Ginny's thread has dissapeared.

This person/people reporting willy nilly is making a mockery of the site. They hide behind anonymity and nothing seems to be happening.

Did Ginny receive a reason why the thread has been reported probably not. Did the person reporting it have the courtesy of explaining to Ginny why they felt her thread should be removed, probably not.

Apologies if no one else agrees with my vent, I just find this malicious reporting pretty annoying!!!!!!!!!!

:-P :-P


jax Report 29 Jun 2011 23:03

I have a suspect in mind but of course cannot prove it.....well I am sure GR will find out soon enough



GlitterBaby Report 29 Jun 2011 22:58

Oh dear Ginny

Your thread has just been requested for review again within the last 5-10mins

Some one is playing silly b's


Gins Report 28 Jun 2011 07:39

It was Syl....asking for help back to the 1700s

What worries me is the fact that it will put people off from posting and the boards have been quiet enough recently


SylviaInCanada Report 28 Jun 2011 01:27

how ridiculous!

it looks as though it was a perfectly legit request
