Welcome back Ed.!

I'm surprised that someone hasn't told you to read the archive and post on your Bloody Boring thread instead of starting a new one.

For anyone who has only recently joined our welcoming and friendly forum.... Search the archive before posting!

Bored (again)? - move on!

It'll take a hell of a lot more than a little boredom on Ed's behalf to awaken Jeff.

Do we have an unanswered section? Can't imagine Ed. ever being there! Ed. probably has the thread with the most answers ever - But mentioning it ... now that is considered blasphemy!

Ouch!

Jeff reads every post. Jeff believes in allowing people the ability to show the world who they really are.

Back to quiet reading.....

Come on Ed... Let's get the facts accurate.

30 day suspension in April 2014. After the suspension was over, you have posted on the website every month since.

If you were going to take 600 days off, you would not have come back to the forums until Saturday December 19, 2015.

No Ed, they do not.

The forum rules are plain and simple. If a post has a caustic remark pointed at a person, the post is to be flagged for review. Let the moderators deal with the issue.

When this approach is used, the overall Lotus Elan Community thrives. When one person tries to police others without the authority, it only causes discord.

Please follow the rules.

thank you.

No offence Jeff but it usually takes considerably more than Ed announcing that he is bored...again !
I can't imagine that you read every post, but I'm sure you have a few prefects to read them and report back.

Actually, I read every post. I have a report that is sent to me every morning of the previous days posts. So, I am about 36 hours behind the actual post time. The report has two sections. The first section contains posts by specific users that have been disruptive over the years. The second section contains all the posts in chronological order.

It allows me to quickly review the posts and ensure domestic tranquillity.

I was alerted to this thread, by a member who flagged it due to inappropriate comments. I am in the middle of painting a bedroom and now have coral reef paint on my keyboard. Hopefully, I can get back to finish painting and get one more item off the wife's list.

To be honest I've never found Ed's posts particularly offensive. That said, most of the time I read it and haven't got a clue what he's actually saying?

I agree -- no need to take offense when you cant even understand it - but it is entertaining

There isn't an empire any more, but the Commonwealth is something for us all to be proud of. A huge collective of significant countries, indeed Kingdoms united by Her Majesty The Queen.
