If I said "'Blah' (poster name) were you 'Blah' (poster name). If you are, hello. smile If not, hello anyway. smile, which bit of the forum rules would I be breaking please. smile

Thanking you and lots of love.

I'm sorry that it's nearly home time.

So why on earth did anybody think it worth reporting? I'm sure GNHQ have better things to do such as brew and cupcake ?

merlotgran Mon 27-Jan-14 17:34:44

Jingl, I think you should have reported Blah for maybe being Blah before she became Blah although Blah might not have been Blah to begin with. confused

jinglbellsfrocks Mon 27-Jan-14 17:35:03

grin Don't worry about it Stansgran. Just a slightly puzzling deletion.

merlotgran Mon 27-Jan-14 17:35:37

According to the guidelines that is.

Ana Mon 27-Jan-14 17:35:48

I don't think anyone would have reported those posts. Possibly one of the names mentioned triggered an alarm at GNHQ? (Bit far-fetched, I know, but...)

jinglbellsfrocks Mon 27-Jan-14 17:37:12

Yeah, alright Merlot! hmmgrin

Ana Mon 27-Jan-14 17:37:32

The reason LucyGransnet implied was 'speculation'.

jinglbellsfrocks Mon 27-Jan-14 17:39:11

Never speculate! Decidedly dodgy. IMHO.

On the fishing thread. If you must all join in! hmm wink

Stansgran Mon 27-Jan-14 17:43:05

I've been listening to foreign languages for a week. None as incomprehensible as this.

Ana Mon 27-Jan-14 17:44:18

You'll feel right at home on the Fishing thread then, Stansgran! grin

jinglbellsfrocks Mon 27-Jan-14 17:53:39

Please go over there and translate for me Stansgran. I don't know if they are being rude about me! shock

Anne58 Mon 27-Jan-14 17:53:51

Ah, I see now! Ding a ling a ling!

Flowerofthewest Mon 27-Jan-14 18:05:04

Feel decidedly left out with the whole 'Blah' thingy. I am often confused but am REALLY confused confused this time.

grannyactivist Mon 27-Jan-14 18:12:34

I saw the deleted post and thought that if 'old name' had come back under a new name then her/his anonymity would of course be compromised if s/he agreed to being 'old name'. And if s/he didn't respond it would be assumed (perhaps wrongly) that s/he is 'old name'.
So the question is better not asked.
Does that answer your question jingl? smile

jinglbellsfrocks Mon 27-Jan-14 18:17:11

Sigh! Yes alright. Smartypants. hmm

Can't remember anything about anonymity being compromised though.

jinglbellsfrocks Mon 27-Jan-14 18:20:20

I mean before.

Oh never mind! hmm

Still think they need to re-do the Forum Rules. To include much more in the way of offences.

Very definitely worth bearing in mind that usually (not always) people name change for a reason and so may not want their new identity to be "outed" to the world and his wife on the forums.

BUT - if anything causes concern let us know and we will investigate accordingly. Now, is it lunchtime yet?

(Agh how can it only be 11 o clock? And why is there no cake when you need it?)

We can be naughty/daft (take your pick) buggers. hmm
