Hi eveyone on the forum, lots of stuff has been going on recently and it's gotten outta hand. This has resulted in some being warned and removed I've been informed. Please can I start the ball rolling with a post for apologies only. Theres more to life than all this angst and fighting so please lets have a laugh, respect other peoples opinions and ideas. But of all lets get on, we're a long time dead people, so lets make the most of while we're alive. Joanne666, Nikki, Simon and Sarah it's over to you now. Webmaster please put back anyone that has been removed. Thanks Omare

Yeah I realise what your saying and it makes sense but we're all to blame here so if one goes then we should all go, it's only fair. I'm posting this so we can call a truce and hope that you will help with this by not being too hard on those that have been removed and let them re enter the site. I'm sure I'm not the only one that wishes things could return to how they were. Please don't let this get in the way of what was a peaceful forum. I am appealing to you as a person not a webmaster and hope you will reconsider your descision on letting anyone that was removed,join again. thanks Omare

yup i totally agree! although i do believe that the people who haev been sent off for a reason and they should not be allowed bk - after all they agreed to the terms and conditions so why did they stick to thm - if they let these people bk, thn where do thy draw the line!? should eveyone get a second chance!? but i agree tht we need to bring this forum back to a pleasant one. people seem to be set out to argue each other instead of helping each other and putting people straight. some people have been told the wrong things and need to be told right - but lets not get angry with them!!

thnx omare!

OK I hear ya, but can you answer me one thing please, rule no.3 states ....Vulgar, Abusive, Racist, and Sexist Language will not be tolerated. so why, when Joanne666 posted swear words, shes gets away with a warning and Simon gets removed for what exactly? Being himself and speaking out against vulgar language. This is confusing to me.

All,

Lets get this sorted once and for all, the forum webmaster is me. I have the little yellow icon next to my name, anyone claiming to be the admin / webmaster that does not have this icon is not who they say they are. I have attached the icon below so that you can see what it looks like.
