There were weeks where I did not answer my phone because the only calls I got were from creditors--the Forum (and The Girls) were the only things that kept me going.

I agree, there are some members who seem to enjoy challenging others, putting them down, and not playing nice in the sandbox (and you know who you are). I suggest you take a break--lurk. That's what I did. I also have blocked those who don't play nice--that way, I don't get tempted to read their posts.

You have added so much to the DC family. I hope you reconsider.
I was thinking earlier today about doing the same thing. Blocking those who feel like I am their personal victim. I don't know why I have put up with it for so long. My way of coping with the attacks wasn't working. So the only way left to me is to block them. I will not allow these folks drive me from this forum. I have made too many good friends here to allow that to happen.

I am not sure how this works. Does the other person get a notice that they have been blocked? Or is it that I just don't get their posts appearing on my screen?

I don't think so, Addie. You will see that the person has responded to a thread, but you can't see it. It works for me. And, love you best! The Girls do too, don't you dare leave. I'd miss you so. (And Myrtle would probably try and figure out how she could get to Boston).

Myrtle: Purple Flight Suit. Can I follow the Canadian Geese?"

BC: "Myrtle, you're NOT going to Boston."

Myrtle: "I want to go live with Big Chicken Auntie Addie!"

BC: "Myrtle, she lives in an apartment."

Myrtle: "I could adjust. Where did you hide my flight suit?"

BC: "Myrtle, you can't fly that far. You can barely fly 10 feet."

Myrtle: "What? I thought you Big Chickens invented airplanes!"

BC: "Oh, Myrtle. Come here--I've got a piece of cheese for you."

Myrtle: "I love cheese. Would Big Chicken Auntie Addie give me cheese?"

Let me check my PM settings (darn Myrtle, she must have changed them).

I've used the "ignore" feature for two people on here who annoy the h*ll out of me by their bitching both at me and at others. I don't know if it tells them they've been ignored but it puts a message up on the thread telling me there is a contribution from X who is on my ignore list. You do have the option of un-ignoring them if you are really curious about what they've written but mostly I can't be bothered.

I'm with Addie and others. I'm here because I want to be and I will not be driven away by some spiteful loser(s) with nothing better to do than be nasty to others on the forum. We are all here (hopefully) to have a good time and to share our successes and disasters and to ask for and to offer help to each other and, for goodness sake, to have fun.

I don't suppose Mrs LMB will be getting these posts if she's signed off but do you suppose she's receiving PMs? Do PMs find their way to the recipients usual email addresses?

Yes .. I am receiving the posts here as well as many private messages.

I must say I am quite impressed with the outpouring of understanding I have received.

It's good to know I am not alone in seeing these things here, but sad to know that it is permitted to continue.

I have replied to everyone who has written except for CWS - you still don't have your pm settings open.

I appreciate the suggestion to block people and will most certainly do that.

How sad that so many want to enjoy this place but have to put up with the same old stuff from the same people over and over again.

I will never refer another person here because, quite frankly, some of you can not be trusted to not bully.

Shame on those of you who take great pleasure in dismissing human beings with genuine concerns and questions and double shame on those of you who think your opinions are much more important than others.

We shall see how this goes ... if nothing else at least the conversation has been opened and maybe now people won't be afraid to stand up for themselves.

Coming through loud and clear.

Thought I fixed that today. You don't have to reply to me, I understand. STAY, please, STAY.

Don't let the bullies chase you away. And those of you who are new and causing a bit of unrest to this wonderful forum, maybe you would like to go back to 2011/2012 threads and read through those. This is a place where people who like food and are foodies like to hang. I know that this is place I like to hang. I've met many great people here.

That's it, girl - up and at 'em. Don't let anyone drive you away from where you want to be.
