Frank it sounds like you've mistakenly clicked on something which means you are ignoring yourself, I did the same thing, don't despare.
Click on public profile (top right). Click to edit and scroll down to forum settings. There's a section which says ' members I'm ignoring' . Follow the instructions and you should hopefully resolve things. If not get back to us, we can see everything you write.
I was so pleased figrat responded when I had problems.. Frank, you of all people, have not been sent to the naughty corner, the weather thread would not be the same without you
