Sleepy Rosie Sidmouth Winter Reunion 2009 (207* d) RE: Sidmouth Winter Reunion 2009 28 Feb 09

MBSGeorge, on an internet forum like this, you can't demand or expect that anyone not post on a thread, for whatever reason - unless of course you are a moderator. I agree that there can be just cause on occasion to politely *request* that other members stay on topic, rather than derail the entire discussion, but whether they will or not is a whole other matter. I have attempted this myself, without success!

If you genuinely wish for this thread to remain on topic - instead of it degenerating into panto, it might be prudent for you yourself to simply cease publicly continuing to refer to Diane Easby, cease continuing to address yourself directly to her, and cease referring to your somewhat minor spat with her? IMO your own continued postings on the matter represent a maintenance of the disagreement, and indeed their very existance can only continue to provoke response.

Some members can indeed be challenging in their manner when posting. In fact I had an onlist hissyfit reaction to another posters 'challenging' comments myself the other day! I believe we both reacted without due thought or consideration to certain things we read in the 'heated' moment, but nevertheless were able to sort it out very amicably. We took our minor differences offlist and exceedingly swiftly reconciled like grown-ups. As a consequence there's absolutely no rancour whatever there remaining.

Quite frankly, I deeply disliked (and even disapproved) your publicly posted thread seeking to BAN Diane Easby for what amounted to little more than some strongly expressed opinion. Whether I like or dislike her style of posting, such action IMO *could* almost be percieved as turning a minor disagreement, into a public campaign against another individual...
As a consequence, I am myself pleased to see that you succeeded in garnering little or no public support amongst the membership here, for the fulfillment of your wishes.

I'm sure I'm wading in here where it's neither desired nor required. But hey, that's the nature of public fora ;-)
