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

    The most crucial information is missing.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-50406198
    "It is not known what flavour crisps were used to lead it away."

    It is absolutely vital that this is found out so that we know:rotfl:. Journalists not doing their proper investigative work again:laugh:.

    (I just wish they hadn't mentioned the flavour of crisps in the article. It would never have occurred to me if they hadn't. However, now they have, I am also dying to know what flavour they were and just can't put the matter aside without wanting to know. I need to know now, absolutely. Really... leading me there and then not providing the information! Worse when I know that I don't know something, rather than not even knowing or realising about it in the first place - I guess I'd rather be one side or the other - zero knowledge or complete knowledge, black or white, no in between. And zero knowledge that literally means zero - not even giving a thought or knowledge that I haven't got the knowledge. This half-information approach instead is the worse position: the unhelpful halfway house that falls in the middle and satisfies no-one. Or at least not me. The lack of clarity, the ambiguity over what the crisps might be. I am just not satisfied with ambiguity. Really need to know what flavour of crisps they were. And probably what brand as well:rotfl:. Is it Walkers? Is it Golden Wonder? Tesco own brand? Asda Smartprice? Something else? The possibilities just open and open and aren't closed down for me - I need to know which it is! As I said, the flavour of crisps is absolutely vital and no other information in the article or anything else what happened now matters. The crisps are crucial:D. Otherwise why mention them?:huh::rotfl:!)


    I believe it was these:
