Hands up, come on hands up...how many of us actually thought Annie was a "She"?

You mean Bob? I wasn't sure what he/she was...and I'm not sure he/she knew either  :D The mind gets foggy at his/her age  :D

I had heard the name Bob associated with Annie.  I can never understand why people gender change by name on a music forum.  Can't understand why Annie jumped ship, she gave and received as good as she got!

I thought at one stage M Forever had sneaked back on.

Oh no!  I just recently watch Twin Peaks for the first time, about a year ago.   I found the first season especially great, and creepy!  ;D  Bob!

Yes, Bruce noticed that this individual was steadfastly deleting posts over a day. And yes, we agree, it was not a woman. That latter being so, why would the advertised age be correct? Seemingly the poster was heaved out of another forum and joined here. We found it quite amusing that we were criticised for lack of musical grip, but most of his posts consisted of CD covers or unpleasant non-musical remarks.

So, I don't think anyone need blame themselves here, this ex-member showed every sign of not being a good fit for this or any other forum; and by deleting the account saved us wasting a deal of time deleting snide posts.

However.....it may be timely to point out that I have been having corr suggesting there is something of an exclusive boy's club feel here, where new people can feel excluded from involvement, so remember that we have a duty to try and integrate and welcome folk and not just by saying 'hi' on the intros thread. I am not addressing specifically anyone who is actively posting on this topic; just raising awareness generally of Rob's aim to have this be a congenial place for expanding ones taste and knowledge and having fun.

Perhaps she realized the pointlessness of having all the other members on her ignore list.

This or her doctor finally put her on some medication that actually works. :P

I was suspicious. But it's interesting. He burst on to the scene and insulted many of the members here while also extensively and passionately arguing for his point of view. How strange. Why be so rude? What does one get out of it? He obviously knows music. And the use of a feminine persona with which to throw around the diminutive "dear"...I guess that gave him a feeling of stature. Anyway, I'm relieved. But I'm really amazed at how patient people were when being the target of Annie's rudeness. As Captain Sensible said, "I'm glad it's all over."

I fully support this. It was particularly apparent in a couple of relatively recent threads.
Be kind to your fellow posters!!

Yes I think that she had nearly all active posters on her ignore list. :D

Silly question, but where's Harry? Haven't seen him in ages and I surely missed the news somewhwere.

He got angry and left after an argument with someone, I forget who. He keeps a blog where he posts all his listening, but it's always told me I'm blocked from commenting.

He does still post here once a week or so.

That's right. You're supposed to "follow" the blog in order to comment, but whenever I tried, the page crashed, and then I found another way to follow it but that didn't unblock me from replying. So I get an email every morning telling me what Harry listened to, but I can't really do anything with it.

I have the same experience, Brian.  I hope someday Harry will return full-time to GMG.  :)
