AIBU

to think that perhaps we should be more tolerant of fellow posters?

I have just read a thread where a person has told a previous poster that they 'sound like a six year old'
I won't go into details of that particular thread, but none of us really know how others are feeling. There have been several comments on other threads slamming people down.
We are going through a very strange period of history at the moment and I'm sure many Gnetters are scared, alone and feeling vulnerable.
Some I'm sure are coping well, others not so well.
Feelings can easily be hurt, so please, let's all think twice and perhaps, if we can't say something nice say nothing at all?

My DIL would be laughing by now, welbeck

Callistemon Wed 15-Apr-20 19:50:43

Well I'm confused
May have to ask a DGC!!

Yes, but my address comes up as Welsh on some sites and I don't think our postman does that.
Or the sorting offices in England.

Ah ond mae'r Saeson yn hawdd eu drysu! Anniebach grin

Excuse me sign posts in Wales are in Welsh because the names
of towns and villages are in Welsh , people looking for Dowlais
would be lost if the sign post read - black stream 😀 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Have you got the right thread welbeck?

welbeck Wed 15-Apr-20 17:48:12

i'm beginning to see why some DILs have problems.
attitude seems to be, i can be as offensive as i like, and it's you that is wrong for taking offence.

A bit like making jokes about black people being thieves and Irish people being thick... I'm both and neither.

Pob lwc callistemon Nos da

Callistemon Thu 02-Apr-20 22:52:56

Don't I know it, Chewbacca
grin
I could learn with U3A and surprise the DGC with my impressive knowledge. If it was similar to Latin or even German I would, although I do think fenestra is Latin too.
Anniebach may know

Chewbacca Thu 02-Apr-20 22:44:36

But they will do in another generation Callistemon. Welsh language lessons in all schools now.

May7 Thu 02-Apr-20 22:43:49

Yep your right confused

Callistemon Thu 02-Apr-20 22:41:31

But the majority who live in Wales don't speak Welsh yet!

May7 Thu 02-Apr-20 21:05:52

Except of course for the Welsh speakers who they are actually designed for grin

Anniebach Thu 02-Apr-20 15:43:37

Callistemon true 😀

Callistemon Sun 29-Mar-20 19:12:01

Besides the hundred or so in Wales because no-one understands the Welsh signposts

Callistemon Sun 29-Mar-20 19:11:06

There must be two!

ValerieF Sun 29-Mar-20 17:20:26

Lost is definitely a place near the Cairngorms - near my home town. Not much there mind, not even people. Just bonnie countryside.

Callistemon Sun 29-Mar-20 16:00:40

I thought Lost was in France?

Bonnie Tyler thought so anyway
'Lost in France'

SueDonim Sun 29-Mar-20 14:54:38

There is indeed, Anniebach! Not a lot there but it exists. www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/strathdon/bellabeg/index.html

Anniebach Sun 29-Mar-20 14:49:07

May7 Sun 29-Mar-20 14:33:53

SueDonim Sun 29-Mar-20 13:37:22
