Potting compost error

Posted: 16/10/2012 at 20:37
Super noodle, youre thinking the right way, viz., about the soil. I read a book years ago about pathetic is that?......and I found it very helpful. I do believe iits all about getting soil right, knowing your soil and feeding the soil rather than feeding the plants. I'm sure there will be someone who can recommend a good book. Have you found out what sort of soil you have? Is it acid or alkaline? Is it heavy or light? I have a feeling you will enjoy your garden

Oh yea, oh yea,oh yea, an amazing announcement

It was such a temptation to let this foolish thread run and run. My friends and I have been finding it extremely amusing but not now's become unpleasant

Figrat, do you really think I contrived a name change to prolong a thread run? I usually read the latest posts to see if a subject I can reply to is there. I don't count number of threads,etc as you say. If you saw someone posting as figratt ...figratT what would you do? If you changed your name, posted it and later read accusing posts what you do? We do things as we see them at the putting a smiley would have made it ok? Nobody gave me a chance to explain anything.

Graeme. Did you read my posts? It was clear at lunchtime yesterday what I had to do re my name and what I posted about it. There was no secret. All anyone had to do was see the posts on the forum. I changed my name AFTER I said I would. I CHANGED MY NAME BECAUSE IT WAS BEING USED BY SOMEONE ELSE. Look for hidden and mysterious reasons but it's all now getting me down. I live my life honestly, by being open and by telling it as it is. I don't do hints or deceit or play silly games on garden forums but this is no longer enjoyable. I joined this forum to share what limited horticultural skills and experience I have not to have these very silly........ very, very silly accusations and ."proofs" of things that exist in others' heads

Oh yea, oh yea,oh yea, an amazing announcement

Sotongeoff, your way,is not the only way. Why did I have to "do it with a smile"? I did exactly what I thought was right. Plain and simple. What I thought was right. Best leave this now.

Graeme , are you seeing something Im not seeing in my post? I clearly said. "it's getting to be a habit logging in"? Before that I referred to "regular and new posters" This was because of a couple of posts from new to gardening people. Are you saying I should have stated my,new name immediately. I simply did not think to do that. I.posted as me, oblivious to the post name, but I would have mentioned it at some stage as a "ps" on a more suitable post. It,is time to move on but apologies would be nice to enable this.

Ok sotongeoff. For the 13 46 yesterday i contacted Daniel Haynes on this forum saying someone is using what appears to be my name. At 13 35 yesterday I spoke to cristopher2 about this on this forum that one of us has to change his name. At 21 21 I posted as Verdun. The reasons are CRYSTAL CLEAR ..and were made so by me twice please do not nit pick and say I should have done something you decree I should have done. The fact is posters, you included, made this into something it never was. Frankly, I intended not to explain anything so soon as I was enjoying all the questioning posts so many clever detectives solving a crime that never was. I did find it funny and told my friends and family as the issue got even more funny. Frankly, I would have enjoyed a longer run. So, sotongeoff, I respect the posts you present and the advice you far as I'm concerned you are brilliant please respect my honesty in this issue.

Oh yea, oh yea,oh yea, an amazing announcement

Sotongeoff, you surprise me. If other posters think as you do I will leave the forum. As I said earlier, I have posted honestly with no maliciousness whatsoever. All I ask is for people to look at my post to cristopher2 and to Daniel Haynes made IMMEDIATELY I was aware of the duplication of my name and then to look at the subsequent posts made to me by would-be inquisitors.

Oh yea, oh yea,oh yea, an amazing announcement

This is very silly Graeme. I have responded honestly and correctly yet you still question me. Why didn't I do this or that is merely adding to a sequence of posts that urged me to "own up" to something that hours earlier were already discussed on the forum. My intention for one of the christopher2's to resolve the issue had already been declared....see the posts.
You question my integrity further by implying something sinister by me replying on my own thread. It's just the way it was. I wanted to post something in reply to another's already explained in great detail. I have done no wrong at all but deliberately delay my "comfession" because of the posts that were coming i hope other forum members will react with more grace. I can think of no reason to post incognito deliberately on a forum such as this. Can you? I would have preferred by far to continue using "Christopher2".
