Re: A forum full of old dears.

Carol, It could have been worse! The old codger who said it could have described us as 'old biddies' or 'old cruds'!!

Let's challenge the old codger to put up a recent pic of himself to show how 'youthful' he is!! That would be good, as I haven't had a good laugh for ages!!

He's not an old codger Art.

I do find being described as an old dear rather patronizing though - don't you?

I didn't see the post but was it meant to be humorous or serious?

It is a bit of a cheek but that's what ignorance does to people!
Put side by side! Who ever said it, probably looks older than us!!

Re: A forum full of old dears.

Is this a new thread theme?

The other week we had a member start one about an alleged racist member ..
Now we've got another one about a naughty member calling us old dears.

I grant you .. it is very quiet on here just now and a bit boring but I hope this doesn't catch on.

Re: A forum full of old dears.

Forums are full of self praising wonderful people better than others. Problem is after 12 years of posting I have found they are anything but in real life.

Like the one I sent a pm to yesterday asking why she in her another name, sent me a weird Email, with many other members Email addresses on.??? Of course I will never get a response, so who defines manners and normal , the answer to that will make me laff

Sent you other member's email addresses? Not Yahoo email addresses?

Morti, It wouldn't be boring if members started new threads! That's the trouble...a lack of good, juicy threads!
When there are lots of interesting threads, the atmosphere is usually buoyant and up beat!
