    Notice to Newcomers - re Trolls - Part 10 2nd Feb 11 at 9:31 AM
    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

    Probably a daft question which has been asked and answered before, but why isn't this a stickie? You'll need another one soon at the rate it's being/needing being bumped!

    Thanks for being nice and saying it wasn't a daft question too, since I missed the post/s asking/answering that! (I usually read threads properly, but just scanned quickly this time)

    You Bet, I have a couple of days off and it all starts to stack up.
    Run to the Bottle Bank, Remove all Newspapers from storage Bin, Stack Logs, Take Scrap to dumpit site, Stack more logs, Load back of Lady Hooray's car with cases of wine for the Hunt Meet. Sweep up leaves, Walk Dogs, Bath Dogs, Fix Back Door, Service Car, Change light bulbs. And on it goes.

    I might as well stick a Broom up the old Jacksy so I can sweep as I go.

    Not bad really, I have had longer lists.

    Regards all, Handy.

    Evening All, Hi Erme, I would have had the floor done by 4 at the latest
    What's the D&G's is it something to do with your new Handbag (Dolci & Gabana ) Tix your also right, No early finish for Handy.
    Little Doggle is down in the dumps and refusing to eat in case it hurts her.
    If she hasn't picked up by tomorrow evening it's back to the vets.

    Warning. Has anyone had an email telling them you can catch Swine Flu from tinned Pork.
    Well if you get one. DELETE IT, IT'S SPAM.

    Cheers all, back later.
    Handy.

    Yup, I know what you mean. Back in the 80's (I don't expect you to remember that far back, I am a Dinosaur ). I had a breakdown due to overwork and stress. I know how easy it is to fall into a black hole.

    I had my fortune read by a Gypsy, she said buy this lucky black plastic Cat. It had lost a leg, part of its tail and an eye had rubbed off.
    "I said how the heck can you call that lucky".

    After I had crossed her palm with a fiver (the only way I could get rid of her). She said September the 20th would by my lucky day. (She never said which year. )

    She went on to say that I would be fed up and depressed until I was 39. "I said great what happens when I'm 39", "She said you will be used to it by then".

    Age has some advantages, you do get used to life spitting in your eye.
    When you can pull yourself back up from the brink, that is a real success. I have seen you do this many times, there's nothing wrong with being down, the thing is to be able to realise that you are cos you are the person best able to deal with it. The folks that really have the problem are those that deny it. (Mrs Handy at the moment).

    Cheers Erme, Cheers all.
    Back in a while, Handy.

    Hi Pottsy, yes that was the morning list. This afternoon was a trip to the stone masons to collect a slate top for the table I restored last week. Then wash and valet Lady Hoorays 4x4.

    If anything it was an easy afternoon.

    Tomorrow I have another 1 1/2 tons of logs to stack. No wonder I'm waisting away. Time for another Scrumpy methinks.

    Regards, Handy.

    A Good Night Scrumpy all round
    Last year was good for the Scrumpy harvest. Trouble is it doesn't travel too well. I took some Oop North for little sis. By the time it had done a 6 hour journey it was only fit for sprinkling on chips as cider vinegar.

    Much better to sup it straight from the VAT.
    Well that's enough of Handy's drunken Ramblings, see you all in the morning. TFIF. (Thanks Friends it's Friday, or something like that )
    Regards, Handy.

    Morning All

    I was going to ask about twinkle toes night as well Pottsy. Pottsy are you a guy? Blimey lindy hop night very impressive! hope you didn't 'hop' onto your OHs toes too many times!

    This wind is terrible, I was buffeted around everso on the dual carriageway - I don't know how lorry drivers manage to stay in their lanes (well most of them anyway).

    And finally - its time for friday wiggles
