AO's Message of the day!

Lets all cheer up a little more....

A little empathetic/supportive spirit as gone a miss somewhere the last few weeks on this forum and far to much quality is being missed, try to concentrate on the positives people, if you dwell on the negatives, (as you all know by being an Alfa owner) we will all go round in circles fighting each other. Let the love flow...

Otherwise we may be forced to introduce breath testing before you log on as it seems its easy to offend people and then blame the booze!

Thanks for reading!

Now back to my half a bottle of whiskey and a cigar.

BTW, who are these people with cable ties wearing white coats running towards me?

I agree with the majority of what you have said But I think the majority of the posters here have been smiling and cheerfully posting and enjoying what ever tickles their fancy. I know there have been a small number of threads that have gone off the rails a bit with tempers frayed. We all know the ones But generally, I feel that this is a happy forum Or is that the booze talking

Well they do tend to stick out a bit, so you're definately right in what you are saying In actual fact I had to bite my tongue yesterday in a post although I felt angry I don't like feeling like that

Re: AO's Message of the day!

I deny all knowledge of beign part of a thread that has gone "off the rail"

The "just noticed" thread might seem a lot of "fighting" but as far as I know, we are all joking ...


(I might be wrong too... if I am, I'll see you in the ring Kurt )

Re: AO's Message of the day!

I agree with Hugo ... and I slightly agree with the paranoid Pasi as I think he is taking the mick

So lets not confuse things. I believe this is directed at people with genuine negative feeling towards others or post in a unconstructive overtly critical ways.

Keira is fine,but for a bit of a cold.She is a really sweet placcid little thing.Missus is absolutely fine,helped by a very easy labour,and is well chuffed because she has a flat stomach again.
Owen seems to be obsessed by his little sister and very gentle towards her,though he has currently been going though a habit of waking us in the midde of the night.
Real test starts when I go back to work next week.
Taking the opportunity to catch up on some posting while they are all out at a mother and toddler group.

Re: AO's Message of the day!

I thought part of the idea behind this thread was to promote people being nice to each other

Re: AO's Message of the day!

Despite pleas from Ian, Hans and myself the mood here has continued to go downhill recently. Tonight I banned two member for 2 days each for ignoring DIRECT warnings from myself.

We do not wish to ban anyone permanently.

Respect each other.....please!

Okay, all temporary bans issued by us from today are now defaulted to 3 month bans! No judge, no jury. Grovelling emails or PM's from others that choose to try and sway our decision will be deleted and your username will be added to the moderators/admins ignore lists.

Who is going to be first?? Or is it just easier to be friendly?
