is still there. And flourishing.

Think it's gone now <crosses fingers>

Movedalot Wed 27-Mar-13 15:14:45

Isn't this a thread about a thread?!?

janeainsworth Wed 27-Mar-13 15:15:04

Which one was it ?

gracesmum Wed 27-Mar-13 15:17:18

Why do I always miss the fun?

j08 Wed 27-Mar-13 15:19:43

It is a thread about a thread. So Shush!!

Some bloke in India had joined GN just to offer "services". Not sure whether we had to go there or he was coming here. confused

Ana Wed 27-Mar-13 15:22:55

Why was it flourishing? Were people flocking to book his 'services'...? shock

j08 Wed 27-Mar-13 15:24:38

No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! shock Sugar me! No!!!

Posters were joking. As is the norm.

gracesmum Wed 27-Mar-13 15:28:03

shock - maybe we could have put him in contact with the poster offering her services! (I suspect another deleted thread by now!)

Movedalot Wed 27-Mar-13 16:18:27

Does that now make this a thread about 2 threads?

soop Wed 27-Mar-13 16:27:40

As usual, I've lost the thread. What a wind-up!

kittylester Wed 27-Mar-13 17:05:41

Sorry I reported it if it was that much fun - if it was the one I reported. confused

j08 Wed 27-Mar-13 17:09:26

No, it wasn't that one kitty. It was the other one.

soop Wed 27-Mar-13 17:13:09

Do share, Jings

janeainsworth Wed 27-Mar-13 17:20:22

Which was the one that Kitty reported then? confused

j08 Wed 27-Mar-13 17:22:38

Kitty knows which one she reported, don't you kitty? smile

I'm always surprised, and very disappointed, when members prissily jump in and declare 'reported' (much like a Head Girl at school) when someone posts a saucy/advert/crazy thread!

Surely GNHQ can take care of these things?

I was looking forward to learning, in relation to a younger lover, how one 'inboxes' !! grin

Galen Wed 27-Mar-13 17:45:40

I missed this as I was working!
In future please do not delete saucy threads til I've had a chance to look at them!

janeainsworth Wed 27-Mar-13 17:48:00

I don't think it's prissy to report the adverts riverwalk.
The moderators can't watch everything all the time and it helps them if we report stuff. The point about the adverts is that the genuine advertisers pay to place their adverts, and those who sneak in without paying are getting the advertising for nothing.
If someone posts that they've reported the advert, it saves everyone else from doing it and it means the moderators aren't inundated with reports about the same advert smile

Riverwalk Wed 27-Mar-13 17:58:33

Galen next time I catch a saucy thread I'll copy and paste it to you, just in case you're working that day! grin

Jane, in the main, the unofficial adverts that appear as threads are so obvious and usually rubbish in content that I don't think any GN member would be taken in by them - and I'm sure that they don't have a harmful effect on genuine advertisers. smile

j08 Wed 27-Mar-13 18:12:58

That's right Jane. (stops them ebing inundated)

But it would be good if some of the threads could stay around for a bit.

Perhaps HQ think it would give GN a bad name.

j08 Wed 27-Mar-13 18:14:23

Can't have people advertising without paying though. Wouldn't be fair on the site owners.

Ana Wed 27-Mar-13 18:19:10

But once it's been reported, people don't have to keep on saying that they've reported it too....

River thanks!
I always miss the interesting stuffsad
