Thankyou all for your input,
I have pulled the thread as unfortunately someone left a rude comment about another poster, which I was not prepared to leave on show all night.

Shame - it was a good discussion.

Although the comments must have appeared after I'd logged off, that might have been once instance where the RR could have been used correctly. ;-)

Wonder what had happened to the thread after I left last night

I did ask the poster to remove the comment but no idea if that happened or not.

Shame really that a member saw fit to post the comment.

Hi GB I could see no point in RR, they would get more attention weeping and wailing on the norty step ! It didnt get removed so I moved it , toot suite .

Well I am pleased you took that decision to delete.

I did wonder at the time about doing RR on the comment.

Wonder if the member the comment was aimed at actually saw it.

I assume i was insulted further after i logged off?

It's weird how the only people posting the nasty comments are those who rarely venture from chat?

Lindsey, I posted on your thread with a comment that was very restrained bearing in mind what I was responding to. I can only assume that the thread continued.
Wayne, I think you are being rather cheeky considering the nasty comment you made about new members on the 'find ancestors' board.
