My welcome messages to new members are NOT fluff

So seen as this is the "complaints corner" I HOPE it is okay to post this message here. Also I need to get this sorted asap and seen as I can't PM yet (not after 22.00 again) this is the only way.

I was really (shockingly) surprised when I just looked in my inbox.

Apparently a few (5) of my welcome messages to new members were deleted by a moderator of this forum.

Reason : Fluff?!?

Just to make this very clear:
1.My welcome messages to these members are genuine!
2.I have no hidden agenda to 'cheat' on posting 10 genuine topics before becoming a 'normal' member.
3. I am not a spammer

Djeezus, all this hassle for what?
My only 'crime' -your honor- was being friendly, it's an Irish thing.

It would had been nice to ask me first before deleting my messages, disregarding it as 'fluff'.

And sorry, I didn't study all the 'rules' of this forum yet.

I wonder how long it will take to delete this message now....

Re: My welcome messages to new members are NOT fluff

Welcome to the forum, you seem like a lovely person, with strong eyebrow definition, and I hope you enjoy your stay!!!!!!!

PS: Your crime was not being friendly, it was being Irish. The forum mods are Irishist.

Re: My welcome messages to new members are NOT fluff

What`s fluff? And while I`m about it what are red bobs, who gives them out and how does one earn them?

yeah, the second reaction -after my disbelief- was:
What the F is Fluff???

Well I have to laugh about it now and nice reactions do help, so thank you as well :-)

Ps: now I'm afraid to even post or thank someone...it might get me another of these fluffies :-)
I'm really thinking twice now, before just posting something....

what are red bobs
Either blobs with no 'l', or boobs with a missing 'o'.

Or, a gift from Editor Bob!

I think you've just invented a new button, so in future we will have "thanks", "groan", "fluff" You'll be ahead of the game because you already have 5...

Re: My welcome messages to new members are NOT fluff

Don't take these "grades" so hard. As I found out, it doesn't matter how much common sense you've got, it only takes one person who disagrees with you to blackball you.

I am guessing if you've been here long enough, you have more "power" to upgrade or downgrade other members; right, old timers?

A double 'thanks' and one 'fluff' for you.

Let's get some odds:

22 yards: 2/1 - Aussies are getting killed in the Test match today so might be angry.

3wishes: 100/1 Lover of fluff methinks

Ace1: 1/1 - even money. No comment required

Castro: 250/1 Most absent mod here!

Lost_inbroad: 150/1 too busy eating KFC

Mirfield: 10/1 after he banned the goblin he's been enjoying some more jobsworth stuff

Musicchick: 100/1 she has been quite behind the scenes recently too

Slaphead: 2/1

Re: My welcome messages to new members are NOT fluff

Hahaha,

Thanks so much guys, for all these lovely, fluff.. eh.. funny reactions :-)

I love it!

Monchaltorf is 'small' enough, so I probably shouldn't name the moderator - just in case
