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

Now teatime is over, and If has posted the usual welcome message to newcomers, any thoughts on supper? Curry would be nice...as long as there's no spam in it.

Ahhhhhhh that's why he keeps trying to disappear Nargle.. I just thought he was chasing Wilma again.... come to think of it, I did wonder why it often smelt of curry in here


Supper.....

How about this? I'm feeling poorly today, that's my excuse

Noooooo......... I've got a cold Nargle, feeling sorry for myself today

I behaved myself last night (well nearly). I might have been responsible for some of the crisps on the sofa, and maybe some of the cake crumbs ... but I stayed well clear of the aspidistra

I need to get my eyes tested - I read your post, Spoon as saying you've got a cold Nargle (what's one of them? Oh, I'm one of them....)

I can't do punctuation today, Nargle, brain not working properly it needs feeding... off to have some chilli and rice, that'll sort the cold out.

Don't eat all the cakes

Good morning trollbusters!

Spoon - hope the chilli did the trick and all those nasty cold bugs came streaming out of every orifice! Take loads of hot toddies with chilli and garlic added as well as honey and lemon. And of course hot water. Not to mention a little something alcofrolic to make it interesting.

Morning everyone

Nargle..... that's a concoction and a half. I should think the bugs would run kicking and screaming from that, the chilli on its own is bad enough!! I'm feeling a bit brighter today, thank you, the chilli definitely helped. Hope you're OK today?

And hello to the rest of the gang, hope you're all hale and hearty today

Lovely toddies, Upsidedownbear, just need a spot more chilli - just so as you can see the fumes rising off them....
