David K you reply wasn't there when I posted. People will make up their own minds about things and don't have to agree with mine. If you feel so strongly about what I have been saying then you can report this thread to the moderators

I'm not young Tetley as I wish I was.  I'm middle aged with a frozen shoulder and creaking joints I'm well on my way to being a wrinkly

Gardening sounds like bliss Dove. I saw a lovely pic of some iris on here tonight. Suppose the good thing about the mild temps is that we get to see our flowers earlier

My first snowdrop :-)

Oh wow they are lovely! Got round to planting some of these so looking forward to see them.

What new seeds will you be trying this year?

Posted: 13/01/2016 at 18:18

Not sure yet what I'm going to sow. Even though I been here for only a year now, garden is seems quite full.

Lyn you've got loads but not at all ridiculous. I've got several tins and catfood boxes stuffed with seeds. Time for a sort out. I've not bought any new seeds until I have a look at what I've got

That's great yviestevie about your seedlings. Think it's a shame I didn't sow more stuff in Autumn given the mild the weather we are having

Hi Tetley, for me this is a different than not liking what was being said or the topic. I like to think of myself as an easy going person with a good bit of kindness too

My only point is Verduns compassion for refugees thread was delibratley started with the sole aim of causing of trouble which of course it has, others have said the same thing.  Am I just to keep on ignoring it? I don't want to see delibrate troubling making here.

It's not for me to convince you or anyone what I say is true but if you use forums you will come across this behaviour. I say it's worth finding out about it because trolling etc can really do a lot of emotional harm and it pays to be informed.

It's about keeping safe on the internet. It can also do a lot of damage to the website's integrity.

If anyone is interested another good read is Tactical Trolling, very manipulative and clever behaviour but over time patterns emerge.

I have an excellent article found on another forum which describes this perfectly, if anyone would like to read it  I can send it by PM

I don't think any topic should be taboo including confronting a member who started a thread with the intention of causing trouble.

It's called flame batting and in contributing to this thread we are flamming or flammers.

I like this forum too which I guess is why I am posting this. Generally I'm pretty good and letting stuff pass by me, after all the reason why we are all here and have in common is we love gardening. On this occassion I thought that what was posted couldn't be left unchallenged

I know that is not going to be my most appreciated post. But even if you have an opposing view, think mine is wrong. It's worth having a look at this especially if you use a lot of forums.

I would hope that nasty pms were reported and would expect that the Mods would  suspend their accounts and feedback to that person who was on the recieving end.

 

Compassion yes....but get real folksThe

Sounds lovely Wonky, it's wet and soggy here and I'm having a hot Ribena so some sunshine would be very welcome

Anyone done any gardening today?
