    @pitterpatter. I was by no means suggesting that your intention on coming on to the UIB forum was to start a feud. Please don’t interpret it like that. It was nice of you to try and pour oil on troubled waters.

    I am just concerned that your constant bashing of UIB over here could escalate and turn into a feud. We all know what forums are like!

    I’ve tried to explain and so has another member why you were treated like that but you don’t seem to have taken it on board. I don’t really know what else to say.  :-(

    Jackie …constant bashing?please read what I have said.

    I have taken your comments on board…Thankyou.

    I am not bashing UIB at all ,I commend you for your loyalty.

    I do have a right to express how unhappy I was at my treatment ..who knows it might save someone else in the future…

    my attempt at pouring oil over troubled water resulted in a troubled weekend for me,I don’t come on to a forum for that.

    I am glad that the situation is now resolved and I promise I will not attempt to mimic Madame Scarey again…apparently I do it so well.

    ca va !

    Dear Pitterpatter, please don’t leave.  I do not post a lot, but read almost everyday and I for one would miss your postings.

    Oxfordschool  you sound really nice, but could you be part of a current problem? It’s essential, I feel, for a forum like this to thrive then more than just a small regular group of people post. Either the small group are going to run out of steam, or that group will possibly present like a clique and put off new members or members who find it difficult to “break into” the established group. Criticism of content and comment is far less likely IMO if there are enough new threads and people feel able to say what they want to without fear of starting an on-line punch up or an uprising!

    You say you look at the forum regularly. How much better that would be if you could join in more often and say something, start something, comment. Conversation and an exchange of information and views is really not going to happen if it seems no one is listening.  I don’t agree with people saying “this is not a chat room” when people clearly enjoy conversations on here, some of us more than others. I think we each should deal with the threads in our own way and I hope that the Normandie forum will grow and prosper.

    One thing that I truly miss in the years I have lived in this country is the English sense of humour. Very recently, it would seem that a sense of humour bypass has afflicted this forum – started, I believe, by the e n d l e s s  (and unresolved) Brexit concerns.  Humour has been conspicuous by its absence. I, for one, have grown very tired of hearing every day that we are all adults, we must get on, bla bla bla!   If a forum is to be a sociable place for discussion, opinions, advice and solutions – then it can be.  No harm in debate nor even disagreement. But definitely no place for name-calling or spite or playground bullies, just somewhere where we can share our Englishness and our common language.  Tom and Debbie, I’m sure, are more than able to rid the forum of anyone undesirable, without preamble or fuss. They’ve done it for me – faster than you could say ‘troll!’

    So, to anyone watching and not posting – do feel you can join in and at least say “hi” – the more people the better, the more members the more interest.  We surely don’t need to hear any more that people are keeping a low profile/feeling that the forum has changed for the worse, or are threatening to leave.   :negative:

    Pitterpatter, I’m sorry you felt you were not made welcome on UIB, I believe I also said to you recently that I enjoyed reading your previous postings. I was a member of UIB before the UIN was formed.  I have found on the whole I have been made welcome on both sites, I don’t post here so often as I do on UIB but there are several members’ posting I enjoy , the humour and the general posting of their life style, that I find interesting. As with a lot of families things get said in the heat of the moment, which are regretfull, sometimes because of stress, or tiredness or other matters. But as we possibly have experienced this, we have to move on and rise above any feelings of hurt and wounded feelings, if we are to improve the relationship.  I do hope you feel you can pop in and join in with any posting that interests you or amuses you, and feel perfectly relaxed about that, in UIB.  I’m sure you have many interests, hobbies, that you could share with us,  I for one would be very interested to read them. :rose:

    ChapeauRouge, I want to be your friend. But not in a clique-ish way, bien sûr! :rose: (It’s a Deep Secret rose, in case you’re interested ;-) )

     

    Oxford School, I second what CR has said – if you look in, it would be lovely if you’d join in – if something takes your fancy. And if it doesn’t… maybe you could start a topic? ;-)

    All comments read and digested…

    I was unlucky to choose last weekend to pop in,ok,I suppose I  popped in because of the chaos,I found a lot of very unhappy folk ,all of them wondering what was happening and why.

    will I be back?does a rabbit put his head out of the hole after the bullet whizzes by?probably!

    do I wish the sites well?of course I do .

    will I come in cognito?no…I didn’t the first trip ,why should I the second ?
