    Thank you for your comments, I have taken note. Just a couple of points.....I have neither disclosed the name of the sender who tried to involve me in conversation, or disclosed the rest of what they wrote...that indeed remains PRIVATE. I do not know what this person looks like so can't comment on their appearance. I merely gave information concerning the syndrome mentioned... but I did laugh...more about that when I reply to another post.

    I have no idea how the person was able to send a conversation without having previously posted. (I searched and found nothing) Maybe they have found a way around the system because it isn't the first time this has happened to me. Closing any loophole is something for management to sort out, not me.

    Finally, how I deal with something is surely my business, it might not meet with your approval but I wasn't seeking it in the first place. I don't see why the thread should be removed as imo it stands as an example of the sort of problems some of us come up against and hopefully a warning to other less savvy members. Thank you again for your contribution.

    Mo, I've just replied to another post and was about to do as Pheonix suggested and remove the name of the syndrome so thank you for your help. I do actually know someone with this condition and they were amazed that it is associated with diabetes as they've never been told...... they also had a little laugh when I related what had happened, Obviously a difference in sense of humour ;)
    Other than the instigator of the conversation I offer my sincere apologies to any one whom I may have offended.
    Strong? lol, Nooo, but I am not naïve about the ways of the internet, or the world. ;)

    Nope "strong" is an entirely appropriate word and outing people who try to bully or frighten people via the PM system is an excellent deterrent imo. Its far better to let new people see the potential dangers they can face than bury or censor it out. I've often found it's only people who have things to hide who don't want these things out in the open.

    Lol, Larkins Toads....stuff your pension etc. I love his poetry :)

    @WhitbyJet
    Very bizarre, and yes, your stone is probably the best place for you....but do watch out for toads. (I love them and photograph them often but they have a habit of sometimes oozing toxins from their skin. Fabulous eyes. image.jpg

    :) They have a reputation for being associated with witchcraft but I find them harmless. Even the ones who hide under stones ;)

    I can just about deal with Kermit. But I have become rather adept at spotting the situations on TV in which a frog might appear, so that I can literally hide behind the sofa.

    Think I'm in trouble at work.
    My old boss used to say that the worst job of the day was akin to eating a frog, so we all got used to saying I'm going to eat my frog when we had to do a unpleasant or boring task.
    Old boss now gone, found myself having a conversation with new boss and, as she'd earmarked some really grotty jobs for me, I said (repeatedly) ok, I'll eat that frog, frog sandwich, frog pie etc. Problem? New boss is French.
    Now she probably thinks I'm either a Francophobe, hungry or making suggestive remarks...

    I am very sorry I brought up the subject of having Klinefelters, I got what I was trying to say about my Doctor he blames me because I have Diabets2

    I cannot say I was not upset and I still am as I get no help from him nor the nurse, ok I have a appointment with Desmonds this month 22, but I saw the Doctor 27 Jan .

    My dear Beachbag and allt he other members who read my reply I am very sorry for upsetting anyone with my remarks.

    As to my complaint well I suppose I have learnt to accept it all of my long life and well I suppose I will have to learn how to control these Diabetes if
    I can. The one thing I have learnt from reading some of the mails is I seem to have been suffering some time with it as I have real bad pains in my feet and legs.

    Well I can see I did not make a good start with my first mail, Yes I must try harder. yours Phyden.
