I agree Pennine Petal, however since Becks has posted the above, I have just a little to add. I had intended to keep what I knew to myself, but as the above is somewhat economical with the truth, here's what happened.
Hi, it's not quite as Becks has said - she and Geoff started a new forum - they asked me to join, Geoff said they were fed up with the disruption and led me to believe he meant the earlier Trolling and some of the technical issues - however, just to be sure I asked if it was open to all and asked specifically whether there was anyone (other than known trolls) who were not welcome as long as they behaved themselves. I was promised that there was not a list of persona non grata and on that basis I joined.
A couple of days later I was told that some people had used the term Forkers for their own threads and that this was 'their' term and people who had done this and people close to them were not welcome on the new Forum.
I am not interested in joining a clique or what has been descrbed as 'a group of like-minded people' which is a phrase which has always raised my anxieties so I deleted my membership.
Then Verdun was challenged on why he was posting on the Fork Handles thread! That might explain why he's feeling a little 'got at'.
Geoff has been using the Private Message facility on this board to invite people to join his forum and this has caused some strange messages on Fork Handles.
I was not going to mention any of this, but as I said some pertinent truths have been omitted.
Now lets on with some grown up activity please
