Hello and Welcome

A long time ago Pania wrote the message below to Newcomers or anyone who comes across a troll on the forum


Over the last few weeks we have had a number of "troll" attacks on the boards.

What is a Troll?
A troll is a person that posts deliberately provocative, nasty or hurtful comments on threads. They may be a person with no previous connection to the board or someone that has created a pseudonym to get their point made. If you should get such a comment made on any thread you post, asking for help and advice, please realise this comment is not directed at you personally so please ignore these nasty comments and continue to post here as normal because the majority of us really are a lovely bunch – ooops, modesty!

What should I do if I get a comment made on my thread?
Firstly do not respond to the comment as this is invariably what the troll wants. So to get rid of the offending post, at the bottom of the post towards the right hand side you’ll see a red "Warning" triangle within a blue “Report” icon, as shown below:


Click the icon and then "send" the message which will inform the MSE team of the post, who will then review its content and deal with it as appropriate; sometimes even deleting the troll by making their status PPR’d (Posting Privileges Removed). Remember, this site is an asset to so many people, especially those that feels like their world is falling in around them. There is a wealth of knowledgeable people here all willing to help, whatever you do, do not let the comments of one silly individual deter you from availing yourself of the knowledge base that is on offer here.

PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THE FORUM

It is testament to the work that Martin has done and continues to do that so many people give their time, knowledge and experience freely to others; without judgement, to lift people out of the depths of their debt crisis


PLEASE DO NOT LET THE ACTIONS OF THE MINORITY RUIN THAT

Good afternoon all, snowy here today!

Well, if Fred mark 12 and three quarters thinks he is going to misbehave like his predecessor, he is in for a big shock! He can jolly well roll up his sleeves and start clearing the place up after yesterday's new thread party - look at the state of this place, crisp crumbs and cake squashed into the sofa cushions, red wine stains on the carpet ....and is that vomit in the aspidistra?????
That should leave Fred with no time to go wandering down the page.....

Happy fleabaying Bear.. I keep hoping it's going to make me rich as well, but as I haven't put anything on it so far I may have some time to wait

I think you're right about the aspidistra Nargle I didn't look properly earlier.

Fred... mop and bucket out please, then the hoovering, then you can tackle those red wine stains. Honestly some people clearly can't hold their drink Naughty step for you m'lad if you keep misbehaving

It's snowing here but not settling so far thank goodness. What happened to Spring last week???????

Hello

Look at the state of the place

Love the clever dog If and the party bird Bear

I'll just round Fred up to do some cleaning.

Oooh-er I have a headache. Too much wine at last night's party and I am definitely not responsible for the aspidistra.

Love the skate boarding doggy.

I'm off to get a cloth to help with the clean up (and no my name is not Granville)

Now our new place is all nice and clean again, how about tea and cakes? Or those dainty little sandwiches with the crusts cut off? Egg and cress, grated cheese, ham and mustard - but definitely no spam!
