Hmmmm interesting.......there seems to be one person missing from all the RR'd threads, a person who usually has plenty to say. Could just be coincidence of course :-S :-S

Why the RR?? I didnt see any controversial content in the opening post :-( :-( :-( :-(


Cynthia Report 16 Dec 2012 15:58

I've been you know where this morning and now, when I'm all tidied away and sitting down, I find these RRs all over the place :-S :-S

I haven't a clue who is doing it but think it's a bit unfair to cast doubts on others without proof. :-(


supercrutch Report 16 Dec 2012 16:02

There was nothing in my OP that contravened any of the T & Cs. That is surely the ONLY reason why any RRing of a post should be upheld.

As usual it's the 'I don't like you' syndrome or even the 'you spoke badly to a friend of mine in 2003 and I will never forget it' malady.

Apart from causing me mild irritation it served no purpose at all other than proving that some people are just out to cause trouble in a cowardly manner.

Watch this go whoosh :-D


JustJohn Report 16 Dec 2012 16:07

I was in same place as you Cynthia. So we can eliminate one group of posters from the enquiries :-D

I think Rose has the answer. But Genes really need to get the rr'er off this site. It is funny in a way to see people rr'd, but I hate it when it happens to me.

Incidentally, I have been rr'd about 12 times (cannot remember that any eventually stuck). And I have only ever rr'd one person, and I told her I had.

I do not believe the culprit was any of my detractors, or any of the 40 or so (and rising) who don't like me much. I think this is probably someone with old scores to settle ;-)

I ave been away since Friday why are most of the threads RR'd? :-(


Cynthia Report 16 Dec 2012 16:08

You're right, there wasn't any contentious in your OP - slightly tongue-in-cheek of course - which we all recognised, but nothing which needed RRing.

Maybe whoever it is will find something interesting on the TV for the rest of the day ;-)


supercrutch Report 16 Dec 2012 16:14


we had managed to almost get through one day discussing highly emotive topics without too much aggro. I was damn annoyed on that thread as you will have realised but for once I managed to be fairly reasonable in my replies (don't hold your breathe for the next time)..lolol

However, pointing that out seemed to offend somebody? err no! patently obvious it was for other reasons.


AnnCardiff Report 16 Dec 2012 16:19

so woss occurin' now then :-S :-S :-S :-S


supercrutch Report 16 Dec 2012 16:21

supercrutch Report 16 Dec 2012 16:26

Hayley, you are on dangerous ground there...lolol

I favour it's someone from the past on here who cannot let go of their fixation. Should be flattered shouldn't I? :-D :-D

Edit: just jealousy Ann cos of my stunning looks, sparkly crutch, witty conversation, good friends, sense of humour and a smashing husband :-D

Whoops - misread DS - I thought you were admitting to a touch of vegazzling, but it was crUtch.......... (embarrassed now :-S)

edit - no that isn't a spelling mistake - I was thinkng of sparkly veg......honest :-D


JustJohn Report 16 Dec 2012 16:58


One thread on Page 1 that is a bit like Songs of Praise. It is headed "Christian Thread". There are 20 others to contribute to if that is not to your taste. ;-)

And many more on Page 2 and 3. You could even start one of your own.


supercrutch Report 16 Dec 2012 17:08

*gives Maggie some more tablets and pats her on the head gently* :-D :-D :-D :-D

John that is all well and good but as soon as someone puts up a non Christian thread they get RRd.

You MUST be able to have opposing viewpoints. I have stayed off your thread (only by sitting on my hands) but some people acting as board police will not leave non Christian threads to run.

That makes the antis even angrier and who can blame them. Equality must be the norm on these boards and it isn't.

Sue I shall not post on this thread again and have removed my post...simply because I will not get drawn in to another spatt , even though I have told him never to converse with me again....I'd rather boil my head in oil :-D
