(thread split) Thread for sensitive, thin-skinned people to ramble aimlessly

Hi All,
Moved to Basel (from UK) last May & loving it. Got the job and flat 'sitch' cracked & now looking to expand my social horizons so would love to hear about any organised events. Also, just wondered if the Basel Curry Club is still on the go?
Cheers,
Caroline
Hi Caroline,

I saw your avitar on a recent thread and it reminded me of a place I saw while I was on holiday.
Is this your home town?

I got no family here, I just think it was rather insulting of you to post something like that.

Thread now gets a 10/10 for weirdness.

EDIT - And a potential 11/10 for potential bitchy hilarity.

erm....
Nicky thanks for your throw away useless derisory post, that started a domino effect of sheep responding to yours, including aggressive Eire who confirmed offline that he didn't even understand that Caroline's avitar was related to the famous BBC comedy catchphrase "I am the only gay in the village". Gave him the opportunity to jump in hob nail boots feet first.

Partly my fault that I assumed everyone would understand BBC catchphrases and be up to date with BBC comedy. Sorry.

But as a Super Moderator don't you think you should write a Super Apology or just vow to be less bitchy on a minute by minute basis in your role (your initial post was 90 seconds after I posted that's a bit lame for a moderator to jump in hob nail boots first).

This jackal / vulture / pack mentality is really stone age. And I realy hate seeing it surface so often with so many posts. Hardly conducive to encouraging new members.

Can't you see it ?

Nicky you asked me if I was whoring for Thanks before when I added some info and said I hope this helps, can't you contribute or at least some decorum?

All you (not only you) seem to do is have 'in' conversations with your cohorts. Please open up the forum to others.

Come on Mods, try to be impartial and not jump in unless you've got something valuable to contibute like Unlce Max does (on every single thread ;-) ) or just let the thread continue.

This whole culture of blasting / torpedoeing people is a problem.

By the way Caroline is lovely, has a delicious smile, good company, good sense of humour, a cheeky smile (did I say that already) vitality, energy, and good varied musical taste (incl DnB) :-)
and more but that's a start.

Please, less bitchiness and backslapping.

Higgy Bitchy

Re: Hello

ahhh come on... Where's your humour? my post was supposed to be tongue in cheek on both threads (you brought up the where's my thanks) and the whoring for Rep/thanks has been a long standing joke on EF

Sorry you took 'my' comments the wrong way, i'll remember in the future and not enter into any kind of light hearted banter

See you at the quiz sometime

Nicky

Re: Hello

Hopefully we were all just joking around. Sorry if taken the wrong way, but how could you on this forum.

But thanks for my first PM scolding me. I feel a true member of the forum now.

Re: Hello

Ack. Seems like I got hauled into the Principal's office for a slap on the wrists via PM as well. No presents from Santa for all of us this year then.

Higgybaby, it was really tongue in cheek on my part as well, and I am sorry if you mistook the teasing and banter as otherwise. I'll mind my Ps and Qs with you from now on. My sincere apologies.

Peace?

Re: Hello

OK Ok maybe we all got a bit over excited yesterday and my fault for starting it off, i genuinely found it funny that a 2 and a half year old thread was dredged up, i should remember that humour can be interpreted differently and not expect everyone to laugh at my jokes (obviously i am wondering why the heck they aren't!)

So HB come back we are all sorry - give us stick when you see us at the quiz, I'll give you permission to beatch slap vodzilla even

Ha ha, now I've received my first red blob from the lesser HB. Even had the idiocy to say 'if you haven't go the decency, balls, tact or intelligence* to apologize". Uncalled for as it was, but clearly the lesser HB can't read plain English.

I feel so dirty, a red blob, after 2 years on this forum.

Higgy, you really are acting like a Baby. The PM, I took in stride, but now gloves are off.

OMG Thats almost word for word the message he posted when he red blobbed me!

I would have thought I at least deserved an original message. I am really disappointed. I obviously am not irritating enough to get my own personalised HiggyBaby redblob message.

I took the PM in my stride too. But to be honest I couldn't be arsed with the childish name calling. If he wants to bad rep me and behave like a spoilt child after I explained why I made the post he had a problem with fair enough. Its his choice.

Me I've got other things in my life then looking after Higgybabys fragile ego.
