Just heard one contributor has been bullied again by pms on this forum and decided to pull out of,the forum. This member was popular, well informed, knowledgeable and kind. So a huge loss to the forum.These same bullies almost did the same to me last year.,
The forum had become fun lately but some members objected to certain threads and have been aggressive and nasty in their efforts to do this. I honestly did not expect this on a garden forum. Those trolls are nothing in comparison...you have to receive one of,their pms to fully understand it
I have read some silly posts recently denying this as though it's all just a bit of bad tempered banter.....it's not. It's been about BULLYING. And the bullies are winning.
I have good knowledge of gardenIng matters, have tried to,help where I can with advice and tried to,show compassion just as the,contributor who is forced,to,pull out of,the forum did. This forum will be the poorer and another forum will be the richer.
When you receive your "invitation" to join another gardening club remember when you joined GW forum. You joined because you decided to not because you were approached by anybody. GW forum will soon not exist.
I am a sensible, honest and decent guy not given to outbursts or hysteria. I am saying this as it is.
