The first book I read was Fandom, I only got it out of the library because it was in a big section titled MEN. I hate being told what not to do, so I read it out of contrariness. About two weeks later me and Kelly went to the first SFX event heard Rob speak and had to go out and buy as many of his books as possible!


Hello darling! First time I've seen you about!

Not happy. Sad

Perhaps they were just really keen to use the thread-splitting tool Laughing

A) I didn't tell you off, I just moved your post, it wasn't a personal attack.
B)We'd like to try and keep the Sproutmaster section on topic, particularly those threads that are directly referenced from the FAQ
C)Your post was the only post on that thread to have no content relevant to it.

I'm genuinely sorry if you're upset, but I'm not sorry I moved it.

Oops, my apologies again, I just read it again, and it seems I missed a few posts the first time I read it; they will be leaving too shortly.

Better to split it and let you continue to chat than to delete it all to keep thread ontopic for new arrivals.

Was that meant to be a double-entrendre or were you really implying that he gets off on picking on girls?

The thread had already drifted off topic once, so we probably should have done something earlier.

Give us mods a break will ya man Lisa - we're finding our feet too!

The whole reason for having seperate Rankin-based sections was because of feedback that James has had about serious questions drifting off into general chat on the old forum, so stuff was getting lost in the "noise".

Please don't feel like you've been picked on - you were just unfortunately to have been the first to feel Tim's big stick. (fnar)

Maybe I won't never even LOOK in the other sections no more in case the thought police catch me thinking about what I am having for me tea when I'm looking at a post!

Lisa calm down a second! They're only doing their job so that it will be easier for any passing stranger to the site to come and seek information. It's nothing against you or what you have to say or think or do it's just us trying to make life easier for everyone else.

Oh dear...and I thought we were out to get the spammers by having moderators....c'mon guys, be leniant, have you seen her picture, I'd let her off....nice.
Sexist pig though I may be, I wonder if we could let slip the odd off topic, and not be so ultra vigilant...we're all friends on here. If there is a newbie involved, perhaps a private message before the move, just to explain to the individual first...then move the post...I dunno, I daren't visit any of the other sections of the forum, cos I can only write toot and hope it goes off topic, I harken to the before days of course.

C'mon everyone, lets be nice.

GOD _ supercilious sexist tosser. Laughing

Lisa,

Nobody's going to get into trouble for the occasional off-topic post in the other sections, but we will split the off-topic posts back into the Spoutmore section to keep things on topic.

It's not something to take personally. We all forget from time to time

I'm waiting for the first thread to accidently wander on-topic and get split into the Sproutmaster section.
