Cynthia Report 5 Jun 2013 11:34

I feel as though I have stepped into La-La land.......this whole scenario is bonkers :-S

One tall midget reached up high,
Touched the ground above the sky,
Tied his loafers, licked his tongue,
And told about the bee he stung.
He painted, then, an oval square
The colour of the bald man's hair,
And in the painting you could hear
What's undetected by the ear.

Persephone Report 5 Jun 2013 11:49

Thank you Cyns... that has made the thread crystal clear now..


Renes Report 5 Jun 2013 12:18


I just love that .................. I am copying it

and Susan

I agree with your post and I am sorry it has been RRd ...

and once again, without ownership and or reason ......... by a member


Porkie_Pie Report 5 Jun 2013 12:21

No change their then

Edit, I question that their is a valid reason for most of the posts that are reported anonymously and it's about time people were held to account for such actions

As with this thread i have reported it and given my reasons on the thread



DazedConfused Report 5 Jun 2013 12:51

I have had cause in the past to report I think 2 posts and both times I said I was going to report them and gave my valid reasons for doing so.

I am not happy about reporting but in some instances it has to be done.

One was about a paedophile and his name was mentioned. Now my concern is that this was the same name as a cousin of mine (not same area) but knowing how dumb some people can be I was concerned for not only his safety but other of the same name. Especially as it was not a high profile national case at the time.

What does bother me are the tit for tat RR's that happen occassionally and normally over the weekend when there is no-one around at admin to deal with these.


Susan Report 5 Jun 2013 15:50

I see my post has gone .
Genes did not take long I have to give then that

Inappropriate Content.

I am shocked to tell you the truth I have never been accused of that before :-|

The good guys never win :-D


nameslessone Report 5 Jun 2013 16:54


I've been re reading your deleted post - to me it shrieks of exasperation.
But I think the issue must be on the wording of the 'decency' sentence. This is, I think, slightly different wording to the original post on that deleted Thread.


Gins Report 5 Jun 2013 18:42

Soon, everyone's threads/posts will be gone.....except for the ones that are always 'right'

How scary is that :-0

NB: For those who know little about posts. They can only be edited/deleted by the poster or GR

To clarify: No one can edit or delete a post, except the poster themselves or GR

In addition: Your posts cannot be altered by anyone other than yourself or GR

hope that helps

"PP I don't come back to posts because.......and besides I'm not sitting on my bum all day - I do have other things going on in my life)"

Some people don't have the option do anything else...............this poster obviously has no thought or consideration for the disabled etc among our members


DazedConfused Report 12 Jun 2013 12:15

Having read Reggies post above - thought to myself - I did not say that. So went back through the threads and realised he was talking to Porkie Pie and not me Piglets Pal.

Have had this before, so now in order for me not to be shortened to PP and to avoid confusion I am going to change my board name.... :-D


Porkie_Pie Report 12 Jun 2013 12:52

DazedConfused AKA Piglets Pal, I thought Reggie was just quoting what NS had posted 4 Jun 2013 16:34 and I had also quoted 4 Jun 2013 16:54 in my reply to her? but according to NS 4 Jun 2013 17:49 the quote was aimed at you in your former life as Piglets Pal,

Just why anyone would start a thread on a "Community" board and then when asked to clarify what is being suggested in their OP to refuse is frankly bazar as i said in my post

Porkie_Pie Report Edit Delete 4 Jun 2013 11:40
No point starting a THREAD if your not going to "Add" to it or make yourself available to comment further to any replies added


Edit According to the OP this suggestion "needs urgent attention" very bazar
