Your "Helpful Hint"

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

GR, I suggest you remove this from your helpful hints as you now seem to accept duplicate posts and even when they are RR'd you reinstate them.

"Please don't post about the same person or family twice as this can make extra work for the volunteer helpers."

From one of my post's on another thread

It appears that duplicates are now acceptable

Don't think i will bother trying to help any more because it is a waste of my time and resources

Could it be that GR have clicked on to the fact that duplicate lookups would/could benefit them financially?


Edit, I suppose that if less people help then at least that will reduce the chances of duplicating info on these duplicate threads

After asking GR a while ago not to remove a rr'd thread and they did anyway

I contacted them to ask if they actually read the threads

Guess what, I was told they did.....Anyone seen that flying pig?

not only that ...................

but advertising is now seemingly allowed on threads on here.

I reported one on Sunday that had appeared on a thread on General Chat.

It was re-instated on Monday

no email to me about it either
