Is it rude to ask what happened to Jings? I have spells of not using Gransnet , and must have missed something.

I would really like find out to Atqui I've not seen any posting for a long while I enjoyed her input even though it was a wee bit close to the bone sometimes she is a real forerunner of GN.

Rigby46 Tue 30-May-17 10:36:44

I thought she was banned - there was a long thread on the whole matter

Maggiemaybe Tue 30-May-17 10:41:39

Unfortunately yes, she was banned. I think GN is much the poorer for it.

Atqui Tue 30-May-17 10:43:47

Thanks . I wondered if that was the case .

Atqui Tue 30-May-17 13:35:40

I know she upset people sometimes , but she was a live wire. I wondered if she had been reincarnated!

ninathenana Tue 30-May-17 14:18:25

Jings was reincarnated a couple of times. It was quiet easy to suss it was her from the style of the posts.
I think GNHQ cottoned on and put an end to it happening again.

Ceesnan Tue 30-May-17 15:05:43

I think it was more a case of GNHQ being pointed in Jingle's direction than them cottoning on to her....hmm

I miss her too. Honestly sometimes she made me laugh out loud, sometimes she made me snigger and sometimes she made me suck in a big breaths ouch! She fought her corner and things could get heated but I don't ever remember her being cruel, but then perhaps I was never at the receiving end or just never followed a thread long enough to witness a bun fight. Will she ever be let out the naughty corner? I hope so.

Ana Tue 30-May-17 16:57:20

I think you're right, Ceesnan...

No, morethan2, I'm pretty sure she won't be back.

harrigran Tue 30-May-17 17:25:57

I wonder if she reads any of the threads, if she does I want her to know I have been thinking of her and have missed her especially when I was really poorly.

morethan2 Tue 30-May-17 17:54:55

Oh harrigran I've been so wrapped up I'm own comings n goings I've forgot to ask how things are with you. Hope your well

I think Jings has been on the norty step for too long - about time she was allowed back. I'm still not sure why she was banned, although I know it was related to a Syria thread that she started.

She was a creative writer and sincere member.

merlotgran Tue 30-May-17 18:34:27

Yes, she was banned

Yes, GN is the poorer for it.

Outspoken views it seems are only allowed on the political threads which are inhabited by the same people and where some fear to tread.

I don't like bland and I don't like that bloody report button.

But some will continue to hang out the bunting. hmm

whitewave Tue 30-May-17 18:38:42

Sad -I love characters.

Alima Tue 30-May-17 18:47:15

Exactly Whitewave and Merlot. Is there any chance that someone could be unbanned? Always assuming that Jingle would want to come back. I live in hope, loved her sense of humour.

whitewave Tue 30-May-17 18:49:58

I used to like reading what her latest purchase was.

Ana Tue 30-May-17 18:52:17


merlotgran Tue 30-May-17 18:56:49

I bought my Karcher window vac thanks to jingl grin

trisher Tue 30-May-17 18:57:00

I miss Jings. My mum was telling me the other day how my great gran would deal with her children (she had 14). If one told on another for something she would take her stick and then hit both the offenders!!! Just thinking maybe GN should deal with reports about posts in the same way- limited time ban for both. Won't happen I know but GN is quite boring now. We need some lively posters.

whitewave Tue 30-May-17 18:57:44

ana she was always describing her latest purchase. Like some pantaloons to go under trousers, or a blue dress she bought in M&S and posted the picture up. Loads of stuff

Ana Tue 30-May-17 19:15:58

I don't remember any of that stuff, whitewave. I just miss her witty and sometimes caustic comments.

harrigran Wed 31-May-17 00:13:29

Thank you morethan, I am okay as treatment is finished but still left with the niggly things from the chemo. DH now has the dreaded diagnosis so life is not going to get any easier.

ninathenana Wed 31-May-17 06:41:40

trisher I agree GN is rather dull at the moment IMHO , unless you are into political debate or games.
I'm not knocking those that are.

NfkDumpling Wed 31-May-17 06:48:29

I miss her terribly. I had hoped GN would invite her back when she'd done her time, but I fear she may have been hurt too badly anyway.
