    You wouldn't want to live in a country without rules so why shouldn't the forums have rules and the T&c's make it plain what is and is not acceptable

    I have to plead guilty to throwing my teddy out of my pram as a newbie. Soon after I joined, my first answer to a question I urged a posting person not to panic and to wait a few days before committing herself to a bill for a large operation (she couldn't afford) was greeted by such a downright nasty comment from a long standing member. I was accused of being c ruel and uncaring and so was the cat's owner, who was obviously in bits about her pet's condition. It totally shocked me and I was tempted to delete the forum altogether, I was stupid to actually loose sleep over it so goodness knows what the cat owner felt!
    I was very pleased and relieved to see Admin step in and close the thread altogether - so yes, I think we have to have rules and we have to agree to abide by them. Its very easy to get carried away on paper and say far too much.

    I was banned from this site for 1 month - I don't like being called a 'troll' etc. I have approached those people in charge to delete my account 3 times, but they have not done that yet!

    I was banned after only a few days on here - it seems rather pathetic actually, being called a 'troll' etc. Basicallly, a couple of people didnt like what I had to say, simple as that! Being banned for 1 month as far as I am concerned is ......................................!

    I threw my teddy out of my pram right after my first post and 'resigned'. I'm pleased to say Admin took no notice and I am still here. I disagreed with someone who held the opposite opinion to me and I got a couple of rather unpleasant replies which were very upsetting because they were directed at me rather than the content of my post.
    Anyway, I've learned to shy away from controversial postings which is a pity, and now keep my mouth shut however misguided I think the 'poster' is. And I'm pleased I didn't resign.
    There are a lot of nice, good hearted people on here and its enlightening to hear all the different ideas, do consider staying.

    If people wind you up, put them on ignore...not a problem; that is what the ignore function is there for. The Brexit threads brought out the worst in SOO many people...I had to ''ignore'' a couple who became dreadfully abusive simply because they disagreed with what I had politely said, but they could not say so in a polite or civilised manner; maybe their literary skills were not able to express what they wanted to say so they came over as offensive and arrogant.

    I'm obviously not seeing what you're seeing - who's hitting on who?

    You can just not log in and post if you wish to leave a forum.
    Delete any bookmarks, log in details from the computer and don't return somewhere you're not happy posting.

    I think Katz is quite happy posting now, she got some pic of a cat where her own profile pic should be. I've been having probs with very slow typing on here, and whole words missing from the screen. I think they had a few blips a few days ago
