Money Savers Arms


Last ooorders!… We’re sorry but for now, due to resources, we need to close the Money Savers Arms including Discussion Time.

It’s not easy to write this. We love the forum, but we also have a job to do to protect it, our users and MoneySavingExpert, and at the moment, with all our resources focused on Coronavirus information, and all the team at home, we don’t feel we have the resources to do a good enough job.

For four months, we’ve been struggling to cope with the huge volumes of messages we’ve been getting from Forumites – many of whom are in desperate and dire straits with their finances. The team have been working all hours to try and keep on top of it. At first we thought it’d be a short sharp spike, but it isn’t, it’s continuing, so we have had some difficult choices to make about prioritisation.

Unfortunately in, and likely because of, these stressful times, the Forum team have also been receiving an increasing number of complaints about posts made on the Money Savers Arms and Discussion Time. The team have done what they can to try and walk the tightrope of balancing all the various interests, but for now we need to draw a line under this and temporarily close this Board, so we can keep the key, MoneySaving boards – where people are supporting each other through this crisis - running smoothly.

We know this board is important to you, but as the MSE stance has been forbearance throughout this crisis, now we ask that of you. We’re sorry. Of course you can post on other boards, but we’d ask you to stick to the subjects of those boards, and not use them as a surrogate Money Savers Arms or Discussion Time. And as always please be kind and friendly to each other, especially any newbies.

Thanks
MSE Forum Team

    Knocking the door isn't an option, unfortunately (mental health stuff). I'm going with the fine British traditions of tutting and seething.

    One of our neighbours is to quote another neighbour "as thick as ....".
    I'm also tutting and seething, whilst trying to control my psychopathic tendencies.

    Sleazy ... leave your axe in the shed .... we don't do that on Sunday .... :rotfl:

    This morning when I walked Bailie it was hammering with rain. It's too hot to wear full wet gear and I couldn't wear a waterproof coat without wearing waterproof bottoms as the rain runs off the coat and makes your trouser legs wet.

    So I opted for wearing just a normal, non waterproof, coat. Wrong :(
    The rain went straight through the coat and soaked me through to the skin within about 5 minutes. And me bottoms got soaked as well :(

    Nothing worse than a wet bottom ;) :rotfl:

    I know what you mean though, I did most of my dog walking yesterday with no clothes on under my waterproofs, just my undies and socks.

    You lot, tutting and seething. Humph. I'm above all that.
    I would not tut and seethe.
    Oh no..
    I am seething and tutting.

    Yeah, that's the sensible thing to do but I'm a bit paranoid about something happening to the bottoms, like them ripping or falling apart and then I'd have to do the walk of bottomless embarrassment :o

    Having seen a day & a half of my annual leave devoted to driving from town to town hiking around charity shops for stuff for son to move into his own place with, my husband now has ironing board envy.

    I tried to watch Notting Hill, having heard such good things about it for years. I lasted a whole 14 minutes. It's utterly mind-numbing.

    Typical Richard Curtis / Hugh Grant !!!!!
