    Not sure if I'm going to get told off for this since I'm not sure why the last one migrated, but...

    Post your irritations!

    I don't think the forum team will be able to help. I've seen this too many times before. Now that they've decided I'm whoever it is that p'ed them off, they'll read everything I post looking for something to report and harrass me to try to make me say something worth reporting until I either leave or get banned. Looks like I tempted fate with #1649. I don't think I'm going to be around much longer.

    Crows. Why can't they just sing nicely like the other birds?

    All the other birdsong is quite peaceful and relaxing then every so often this massive CAWWWWW just cuts through.

    Trains only running 1 an hour to the seaside, even on a day like today. People were jammed in like sardines on the way back. The guard looked stressed.

    Some 'newbies' have started poking jibes at the issues that people have been mentioning.
    The problem is that this could seriously affect some people's wellbeing, and drive them away.

    It is really cruel. There has been nothing like this before.
    I can only assume that the people concerned have real problems of their own, which we would be happy to help them with.

    I glanced at the thread this morning and noticed the post count has dropped by 40 or 50 posts, so it looks like the trolls have made at least one person delete all their contributions. They've destroyed a safe space for no reason beyond their own desire to be hurtful or to feel like they're getting back at someone (still have no idea who, unless it's the same person professor yaffle accused me of being when I first rejoined). I'm not going to be posting/thanking in there again in case it draws them back in.

    All this because someone has decided I'm someone else's AE. I've been completely upfront about having previous accounts and I've no reason to lie about using multiple accounts (it's not like I'm running around insulting people or starting wind-up threads, so why would I need them?). Maybe if the forum team found some way to deal with the AE issue, people would be less paranoid, thinking every new poster is one.

    How a single news story can dominate the headlines for so long

    Would it be the same if it had happened outside of the capital?

I don't think it's necessarily because it's in London, more because of the number of people who died (which is being constantly revised) and all the stuff connected with it (May being an eejit, buried safety reports, social inequality, protesters beating up a volunteer, etc.).

    My brain (again). I'm anxious and it's driving me to keep trying to reorganise everything until it's "perfect". My arms and legs look like I've been in a fight due to all the furniture moving and it's roasting in the rooms I'm compulsively organising, so I have to keep coming downstairs for a break. The next stage involves retrieving boxes from the attic, which will be even hotter than upstairs. I wish I could just stop and do it in a few days when the weather cools off, but my brain is telling me it must be done now.

    Just had another look and the post count has dropped another 10 despite there being new posts. There's no more troll posts, so someone's definitely having a clear out.

    I feel guilty for not thanking folk for their kind posts on there, so I'm thanking from afar.

    Going to reinstate my Relationships board ban. I shouldn't have let myself wander back in there in the first place.

    Round three aborted after 5 mins as it's 30 degrees up there. Hugging of fan resumed.

    I'm sure I was irritated about something else, but my brain has melted.

    My feet are cold again.

    Why is it that my fan just about keeps the rest of me at a pleasant temperature, but leaves my feet crying for woolly socks?

    Then if I put socks on, they get too hot!
