Dear heart


it just does not work that way ...................

"I think Sylvia and Jax have proved to any reasonably minded person that I am horrible and hateful. Have even admitted that to them on one thread and said they had found me out and trounced me. Only a bit of my brush left now.

This thread would make more sense if, when I removed a flaming post, they would also remove theirs. As otherwise their anger hangs impotently in their virtual world"



you make a flaming post aimed at a certain person or persons, with the desire of getting a similar response back.

You get the response, and then delete the original post ........... aiming to make the others look stupid.

WE leave our posts up to show that there is something going on, and also to warn others that you are not the sweet gentleman you are pretending to be ........... that you have a somewhat mean and nasty side to you.


You can remove all the posts you like that you have made. I will not remove any response that I may have made to them.

Detective Not brilliant at French, but I think my Welsh comments may have been ditto. :-D :-D Lot of similarities between two languages and cultures. So I assumed you were making your friendly comment to me as well as Rollo.

Haven't been RR'd since first day on these boards. No idea why to this day - but am looking forward to my next RR'ing. Makes the eyes water, but you join the elite club and rise to a higher plane. :-D

Perhaps I ought to remove it, Detective. But might get RR's for removing it. :-D

you have deleted at least 2 posts on here ............. which makes my responses sound idiotic.


Not funny ...... and not appreciated by most members on this site.

It's just not on to delete postings



I am going to start keeping copies of what you post, and to which I have responded. Then I can prove that you make rather nasty comments at times.

Sylvia You are nowt but a young girl trying to make out you are mature. Now that we have no coal in these valleys, I thank you for your expected present. When I am warm this winter, I will always think of you. Have you got my address. And have you got my number?

I am only being sarcastic when I am not being funny. I agree sarcasm is the lowest form of wit and the refuge of a scoundrel. Though I suspect I make you giggle now and again. You are making an old man very happy anyway with your thrusts and parries:-D :-D :-D

the heaviest block of wood I can find is on its way over to Wales ...... and I hope it finds you!



I do not appreciate your jocularity when I ask you to change the way in which you address me.


Please be respectful to your elders :-D

Hi all

I have just renewed as well....

Have not looked at my tree for ages, but could not proceed with some of my research without the help of various people from the 'boards' ... and I am very gratefull for this help.

I love reading the boards, and have picked up a number of hints/tips..... Keep up the good work.

Cheers
Karen of Brisbane :-) :-)

I guess the same applies to you ...............


............. no matter how many threads and posts you have written ...... yours is also only 1 vote for the tree. :-)


350 or so posts still only add up to 1 vote :-):-):-)


unless you are intending to overwhelm GR staff with your verbosity.



But PLEASE .............. can we get something straight


by layout ............ I mean the look of the Boards


I assume that by layout, you mean the TREE


I say nothing about the tree ................ except that I had not used it for at least 3 years until 3 weeks ago, when i tried adding a name. It then worked just fine for me.

However, I am not claiming to be happy with it because I NEVER INTEND TO USE IT AGAIN.


Comprenez vous????



I've told you before, several times ............... Please get the terms correct.




sylvia





ps ................. if you address me as SylviaInCanada one more time, I will send the proverbial cedar log over to you.
