I thought you said you and Sassy had found a fantastic new forum to post on? Surely you haven't been banned from there already? No?  Please do feel free to naff off if you don't like it here.

Don't know, Andy.  Ben has tried to do with the level minimum.  One or two in the UK, where all the chain-rattlin' goes on, lol, couple in the US, and I believe one in Oceania. That's in the 'cover-the-world' fashion, so it makes sense.

Frankly, would like to see Irn around once again.  

Sooo...have you and sassy left us?  Am I hearing that?  Where are the hot threads where all this news is chatted up?

Well, if I understand the situation correctly, sassy and aspic and handy have found a great new site to post on. Aspic deleted her account, sassy and handy did not. Any connection to sassy having recently been treated the same as any other poster by a mod is, I'm sure, entirely coincidental.

We certainly have, but I still like to pop in here very occasionally.  It had a lot more to do with the level of racism and homophobia that is on here now, plus of course, since the return of your good self, the smell has got overpowering and no amount of spray can overcome it.  Must be all those lemons and crabapples you eat to keep up your levels of bitterness.   You really must try a new diet, the odour is quite overpowering.  Never mind, I'm sure you will learn to live with your conscience in time.  It's a shame that you have allowed it to rule your world for so long, nearly three years, that must be a real problem for you.   Perhaps less sugar syrup on your food?

Given that level of racism and homophobia, don't you feel a bit guilty abandoning us instead of staying around to combat it?

I'm glad you are happy, but there's still work to be done here.

Sorry Quill, been looking after two extra dogs this week for a friend, and looking after my Dad next week.  If you think you could change the minds of the racists and homophobes on here I'm afraid you can't.  They'd need brain cells for that and a wider circle of knowledge.  It's never going to happen.   You'd never turn Trump into a decent human being, and the same goes for them.

Dogs and Dad...sounds like you've had your hands full, so you're excused.

As far as the minds around here, you do a pretty good job. Lol. Glad you look in now and again.

So which is it? Lemons and crab apples or syrup? Nice curveball btw, usually when you lose face on here you come back to say you have been ill. Friends dogs? Very inventive.

I don't notice a heavy mod presence....LF has been a bit vocal since he was promoted though. Razz

To be fair I thought eddie could have done with a bit of backup recently.....maybe if she gets targeted again she will have it.

It would be sad if anyone left here though...(I haven't been online much over the last few days so don't know whats been going on).

LF has a gd steady hand. We know him as the admin from SF, and he's a hands-off kind of guy.
Eds gets down in the sandbox and plays with the kids, and so she blurs the distinction between authority and combat. But next day...all's well...
But they both do a gd job.  Meh...
