The trouble with wind-ups is that you never know what is going on in a person's life.  Joe said something several years ago which really hurt me at a point when I was at an extremely low edge. 

I was so upset by it I just didn't want anything to do with anything or anyone remotely involved with Del Amitri for about six months. I just disappeared for a bit. i didn't even listen to thier music at all during that time. 

I am sure Joe had no idea of the effect his throwaway comment had on me and didn't mean to upseet me like that - and probably at another time I might have shrugged it off and ignored him, but it was the wrong comment at the wrong time.   

Fortunately my love of Del Amitri was stronger than my antipathy so unfortunately for Joe, I came back  Grin  And have shrugged off and learned to ignore many a hurtful comment since then.

BUT it does go to show that people can be genuinely hurt by what other people think are jokey remarks, and it's always better to stop and think before writing inflammatory posts.

Is this a wind up Wink

Jane if that is true then I am deeply sorry,you can only take my word when I say I mean that.

I dread to think what I said.Christ almighty though how can something a stranger say have such an effect-Please PM over this.

So what I'm going to say now I will stand by and in a way of really making amends I will stop with the evil comments and nasty digs,its gonna be hard but if it means anyting in way of making it up to Jane then I will do it.

Don't have time to read whole thread but orginally voted for a moderator but I think I have changed my mind now. Am now thinking that we all pretty well mod ourselves. If anyone here goes too far someone here usually jumps in and tells that person. I have been to other boards and most are dead boring so rarely visit them. This one, at least has some life - allbeit it is rather twisted. My two cents - sorry - pence.

Now I have another gig to get ready for......

P.S. He played In The Frame last night - Yeah!!!!!

Thought I would be but sadly I am not - he has been really good - only night he seemed nervous was Glasgow and his patter has been pretty good too. I am now thinking of trying to make the London gig before I go and have been spending all my free time studying Joe's pictures so I will recognize him.

Be afraid - be very afraid!!!

It really has Not been boring seeing Justin 5 times (well, 4 times, the 5th is tonight).   More on that after I get home this weekend, I digress.

No to more moderators, even though some pranking and slagging off have gone too far.  One person's "too far" is not everyone's -- who's going to decide where the line is?  Hilary has it right, it would be like herding cats and not very effective or satisfactory for anyone.  I can  see why newbies are  scared off, but I don't see more moderators changing that.

--shit, must dash
