    Some of her threads were epic, about diet and her hamsters.

    R.I.P. Tinks. Always loved reading about your little hamsters on Facebook and admired how headstrong you were. You didn't give a toss what anyone thought of you and that was something that I admired you for.

    Just seen this on FB & was gob smacked. She did my head in but didn't deserve that. It sounds like her health had really gone downhill ��

    Rest In Peace, Rhonda. You were forum gold as 'tinks' and revelled in the notoriety.

    A sad day.

    RIP Tinks - you were a true MSE legend. It didn't matter how many times you were slagged off on here, you just shrugged it off and carried on.

    Deepest sympathy to Tinks partner and family. x

    I don't really remember her that well, I think she was getting to the end of her time here just as I started posting. I do remember reading some of her threads though. I know she was a bit of a legend.

    36 is no bloody age

    RIP Tinks

    I didn't know her on here, I think she was before my time, but I met her on various Facebook groups. She was a bit of an Internet legend wasn't she?
    I can't quite get my head around her being gone, it's so sad.

    I'm truly shocked - Tinks was a legend!

    I, too, thought she was happily comping away on other threads and forums.

    Way too young to be gone, she will always be remembered. Condolences to all who knew her.
