Please keep me up to date, if and when we need to move. I miss this site when it went down. Although it a shame that the trolls seems to attack others posts. Maybe they should set up their own. But then it would be boring for them, attacking each other. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Would you please keep me informed as well?

I don't post on here that much but I was on Gabbly during the maintenance and really enjoyed talking to the people who were on there. That is, until we were trolled.

Mind you, there was no harm done and nothing really offensive so it turned into a laugh really.

Thanks

I really enjoyed 'chatting' to posters on Gabbly when the site was down for maintenance etc and at one point we had a bit of a party going. During the time I was logged on there was one rather abusive troll who tried to spoil the fun so if this has got worse then I can understand the 3As not wanting to endorse it's use.

I for one would be interested to know if a troll-free replacement can be found as it's a good back-up and a chance to 'chat' to fellow posters.

On the two occasions I've popped into Gabbly CaptnMorgan has been particularly welcoming. :)

It's a shame when a few people spoil it for everyone else.

I am becoming a bit concerned about things not being endorsed by 3A. Links to other sites (the latest being Red Crown) are being deleted. I am also concerned about the number of people being banned. A good forum allows free speech, the good with the bad. I feel we are being isolated and cut off from other forum discussions.

I have a horrible feeling this site will go down and we will have no central place to go. I hope I am wrong but I have a feeling this post will disappear and I will be banned for questioning the intentions of this site. Perhaps Mlud was right we were herded into a corral and are about to be sent over the cliff.

Had a bad feeling about the site yesterday too many links and posts disappearing and too much overcontrol of what was being said.

Hope I am wrong

It's a pity. I hope you can maybe find an alternative.

Thanks for all the hard work you do.

Hello HiDeHi. I am registered on http://groups.msn.com/madeleinemccann/

To everyone else on here, I can vouch for the integrity of the site. It is a wonderful site to go to if or whenever 3A is down.

HiDeHi has copied a lot of the posts from this site, and has put a great deal of hard work into it.

I would certainly consider using the chat facility on there. It is a very good alternative to here in the event of a blip.
