No longer registered with Gnet says Gnet. GracesGranMK2 and whitewave also seem to have disappeared.

Were they all outrageous on the Politics thread I don't bother to read and got themselves banned?

Oh dear , I thought it was a game and she was hiding somewhere under a false name and we had to find her. confused

Politics thread has a new poster

lemongrove Tue 10-Apr-18 09:02:25

ww had several posts deleted on the politics thread.
People usually return though.

Smithy Tue 10-Apr-18 09:14:04

Come back DJ, missing you!

MaizieD Tue 10-Apr-18 09:14:42

Does the new poster post hundreds of links, Ab?

gillybob Tue 10-Apr-18 09:14:53

Even more confused

I’m sorry they’ve gone. I hope they come back but I don’t blame them if they don’t. Gransnet is not a good place to be these days.

lemongrove Tue 10-Apr-18 09:40:56

Of course it’s a good place to be!
Just because there are posters who disagree with you about politics doesn’t mean you have to leave the site.Also just because there are many games threads, ditto.
You can ignore the threads you don’t like and feel free to start threads yourself.GN is a much better forum than most.
So much good advice and humour on here, and being able to meet up in real life is a bonus too.

I agree lemon I’m not in a good place right now and Gransnet and many if it’s members continue to offer me good advice and great comfort too . smile

Mapleleaf Tue 10-Apr-18 09:54:24

I agree with lemon too. Some threads can get a bit feisty, but at the end of the day, it’s your decision as to whether you continue posting on those particular threads or walk away from them. There are lots and lots of lovely GN’s on this site. 🙂

That must have been very sudden - they were all posting very recently! I was a bit surprised by the other thread asking where they all were, because I'd seen posts by at least two of them only a few days previously. So it's true then. Hmm, wonder why?

Anniebach Tue 10-Apr-18 10:14:40

This is a good place to be, I doubt I would have got through a very dark time end of last year if it hadn't been for the kindness here, I realise I went on and on but they stayed with me and I was so grateful , always will be

gillybob Tue 10-Apr-18 10:17:52

Oh you mustn’t “go on and on” Anniebach as it really upsets certain posters ! wink

Anniebach Tue 10-Apr-18 10:25:21

I know Gilly, I am told that almost daily on one thread 😀

gillybob Tue 10-Apr-18 10:41:09

Glad it’s not just me then Annie grin

Anniebach Tue 10-Apr-18 10:51:49

You are in good company Gilly x

trisher Tue 10-Apr-18 11:00:36

If it's me you are talking about you could say so. And I'm not upset just bored. I do like arguments which move on and don't stagnate as some seem determined to make them do. Why bother to post f you just want to say the same thing again and again,? Particularly on politics threads. Of course the personal is different but I don't do personal much.

Anniebach Tue 10-Apr-18 11:03:24

Sorry Trisher, not about you

gillybob Tue 10-Apr-18 11:06:50

You beat me to it Annie . Def not talking about you trisher One of the posts I was “told off” for “going on and on” was a thread about my grandchildren being unable to get into their local schools, so very personal to me.

trisher Tue 10-Apr-18 11:07:25

Then bloody name them and stop pussy footing around pretending you are so sensitive and don't want to cause offence.

Anniebach Tue 10-Apr-18 11:10:31

Please stop telling posters what to post Trisher

gillybob Tue 10-Apr-18 11:12:20

I am not in the slightest bit sensitive thank you Trisher why be so nasty? I’m not naming anyone . They know who they are. End of.
