    Welcome to our latest members Pasha, ajsherlock and JTOMS.

    Post by Eddie on Wed Aug 05 2015, 15:00

    I checked in here this morning and was delighted to see we have three new members, a record for this place, we don't often get three new members in a week. So welcome aboard new members and thank you for joining. So, I went off to put the kettle on for the first morning cuppa, yes you worked it out, my computers get fired up as soon as I am awake, old habits die hard. Well, before the first brew of the day my phone started ringing. Good grief I have hardly woken up and it's a long time member of the flog giving me ear ache. "Have you been checking out the flog in the last few days" no I replied what's the grief this time. Well, to cut a long story short, the mods had got the natives going berso with the usual thread locking, banning and post deletion antics.

    So, the long and the short of it, the Mods make a huge mistake, the rank and file natives get very restless and all hell breaks loose. Ah, I thought, no wonder three flog members checked in here this morning, good job I did not let that occurrence go to my head. As some know we pride ourselves on being 'The Smallest Diabetes Forum In Europe" rofl The last thing we need is more members posting stuff that requires answers from other members or any activity from the mods affraid

    So, time will tell, are we an insurance policy for banned flog members, a protest vote, or will we be seeing some great input from the highly knowledgeable and most welcome new members, I certainly hope the latter applies.

    Welcome to the crazy world of diabetes, and as many know, I fit right in. freakout

    Hi Pasha I have been a long term reader of your work and chuffed to see you here.

    I call the DCUK forum the forum of flog, because their main aim is to sell services or products to the members, when they are not selling members information to big pharma for drug trials.

    BTW All forum admins and authorised forum mods can read forum members PM's, that is one of the reasons we do not have a PM system here.

    A warm welcome to you all  Very Happy

    You wont get any of this here: 

    "Moderator decisions are final and not up for discussion. Criticism of moderators and forum monitors will not be tolerated. Things may be discussed via PM, but members will be suspended for personal attacks."

    Nor this on your posts: 

    "Last edited by a moderator: Today"

    Cheers

    I was banned for a week, people there dont know that. Douglas MacArthur, the famous USA general once said "I shall return". I am not MacArthur, not a general .................and the rest I think you can guess.

    Warm welcome to our low carb forum of success, free speech, humour, non-editing, non-deleting, non-corrupt but, most importantly, friendly & informative.
    There are many banned members here, we sometimes get a bad rep but you'll soon discover how open things are here.

    Welcome Sue, unfortunately, most members are banned unjustly and often without explanation. If you have an opinion, and you're passionate, sometimes that's enough in itself !

    Good to see you here. On a side note, I often wonder if on a day to day basis, you look and dress like your avatar :-)
    I'm sure we all have a mental picture about how we think another member may look in real life ! Please don't spoil my mental image :-)
