gracesmum Thu 22-Nov-12 16:06:43

Bit of a back-handed apology or what? "I am glad I am not like you lot I rearly (sic) am" confused
So what are we like? Based on what?

There was an earlier thread, gracesmum - think it's been deleted...jenricks took exception to some of the comments.

crimson Thu 22-Nov-12 16:18:53

You mean you don't want to be able to spell ?

gracesmum Thu 22-Nov-12 16:19:18

Right hmm - as usual not keeping up!!

Lilygran Thu 22-Nov-12 16:32:01

Anyone else eager to know what awfulness led to a thread being deleted. Bad language obviously doesn't do it!

Jenricks your faux pidgin English has dramatically improved since your first couple of posts - don't know who you think you're kidding grin.

We have many people who pass this way - why don't you just introduce yourself properly and talk to us?

Don't take the piss .... we may be older but we're not stupid! smile

Ana Thu 22-Nov-12 16:50:53

Bad language, Lilygran? Are you taking the.....?

Ana Thu 22-Nov-12 16:51:17

Oops - forgot the grin

london Thu 22-Nov-12 16:51:23

jO5 Thu 22-Nov-12 16:58:54

Yeah - because everyone else's spelling on here is so marvellous, isn't it london?

london Thu 22-Nov-12 17:03:24

jO5 Thu 22-Nov-12 17:07:18

No more so than jenricks, london. smile

Sel Thu 22-Nov-12 17:13:51

london I always read your posts in a Geordie accent..I think you write the way you speak and it's lovely. You'll probably destroy my illusions now and tell me you're Welsh!!

london Thu 22-Nov-12 17:18:23

jO5 Thu 22-Nov-12 17:19:54

I'm sorry if I upset you london. I just don't understand why some people are made welcome while others are treated unkindly.

london Thu 22-Nov-12 17:22:42

jo5 point taken x

jO5 Thu 22-Nov-12 17:28:42

Sorry again. It was unforgivable.

Hello jenricks. This is not a dating site, so you may have made a mistake if that was what you were originally seeking or you may have just tripped over into a place where you would enjoy people talking about all sorts of issues that might interest you – from religion to politics and from movies and television to books and shopping. This is a forum for people more or less of pensionable age, most of whom have grandchildren and the majority of whom, I think but don't know for certain, are women. Having said that, I think most women on this site welcome male viewpoints – but are not, as a rule, interested in dating. (If they are, they are probably investigating the possibilities elsewhere.)

BTW I am not god-fearing – just to set the record straight.

Jenricks It is a good idea to spend a short time reading the messages and getting the feel of the site before posting. If you had done that, you would have seen that this is not a site for people looking for "lurve" Try somewhere else.

If you were just trying to shock, then you did not succeed - the people on here have been there, done that, got the T-shirt and now want to get on with chatting without being interrupted.

You are not the first. Others have tried and been disappointed.

The term 'God fearing' has always puzzled me. I've always hoped that God was more about love - lets face it in this world its love we need, not fear.

Anne58 Thu 22-Nov-12 21:07:41

I got the T shirt and shrunk it in the wash!

Re. spelling, we all make spelling errors from time to item (sic) and there are also a lot of typos, which are not the same as spelling errors (I often type "form" when I meant to type "from")

However, posting on here in the same way that one might speak, does ring alarm bells.

I have just had a bath, as a soft southener, should I type that as "baarth"?

Will watch with interest.

Anne58 Thu 22-Nov-12 21:14:39

Does anyone, regardless of spelling ability or accent, really type "a" for "I" ? They are also distant enough on the keyboard not to strike one by mistake.

However, I am using a desktop PC with a keyboard, not sure how it might be on an "apad" , as I don't have one.

jeni Thu 22-Nov-12 21:23:02

Querky keyboard. Just the same!
