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

  • Keith Lemon I find mildly amusing, Lenny Henry okay on occasions, not that I'd want to be his wife, no idea what you mean by the other, can you please elaborate.

    Thanking you

    My dentist.
  • That one from Mrs Brown's boys or whatever it's called.
    I just find that character the most unfunniest person ever.
    I just don't get it.
    I was never into the whole "Gavin & Stacey" thing either.
    Keith Lemon for me too. He just grates on my nerves.
    Maybe I'm just a miserable moo.

    I've no idea why people think that Keith Lemon is funny either. I'm not really fussed about many comedians.
  • Russel Brand. Being a gobby know it all, shouting others down.
    Jo Brand. "I'm like a fat lesbian" yes dear, you've been banging on that unfunny 'joke' for years!

    Must be something with the name.

    Lee Evans- there’s only one famous Lee Evans I like and that’s the bloke from Steps :D
    Michael McIntyre- while I admire his stance on debt collection agencies, he ain’t funny!
    Sarah Millican- she might be a Sand Dancer- so apologies for slating a fellow North Easterner- but she irritates the living daylights out of me!!
    I don’t actually mind Keith Lemon. Possibly because I absolutely loved Leigh Francis as Avid Merrion in Bo Selecta so I can tolerate his humour.
    My very favourite comedians though I can count on the fingers of one hand- I’m very fussy when it comes to comedy.
