    Hi Everyone,

    This thread was briefly removed from view while a series of posts were edited or deleted because they broke the forum rules.

    Encouraging divisions and ‘us and them’ thinking by criticising others is fundamentally against our forum ethos and is specifically mentioned as being unacceptable in our forum rules.

    There is plenty of scope on the forum generally, and this thread specifically, for members to help, inform and support each other. Divisive and critical posts will be subject to moderation.

    Seriously Brunneria, the one good thing about this thread in particular was that we discussed other things other than Type 1. After all we are people who have diabetes and not diabetics. If all we ever discussed was type 1 the forum would become dry very quickly. Thats why this thread has been going so long.

    Yup
    That is why this forum, and the friendly supportive threads on it, are so helpful to members of all kinds. Newly diagnosed, or diagnosed decades ago, we can all benefit from the helpful, constructive and supportive interactions on here.

    And that is also why the moderation team steps in to remove negative, critical, divisive posts.

    Fortunately, this thread can continue to benefit and support members, discussing a whole range of subjects. Hopefully it will continue to run for those who wish to contribute in the spirit of the forum ethos.

    Thank you for your generic reply.

    This thread in particular is never abusive /threatening, in fact one of the few threads that is very friendly, used by a hardcore of about 20 "friends".

    I might just take a photo, close up, for colour, no indication of source material.
    I’d like to gradually decorate the units with folk art (ish) paintings but that’s probably over ambitious. Who knows what might happen if I were low while painting

    I've been hiding under a rock (ie exhaustion from being back at work) and missed the posting drama. I will miss @therower's posts. I hope everyone had a great weekend.

    I do like the winter, but the dark wet, windy times have been so awful, roll on sunnier times, everywhere.
    I bought a small bunch of daffs on Friday and they started to open up sometime last night.

    What about a colour paint chart as they have many different shades.

    Take care

    @Kim Possible, @LooperCat I think it's beyond sad that you're both leaving. I for one have benefited from the experience and knowledge, plus wit, humour and inspiration you've shared on this forum. I do so wish you'd stay, if only on this thread, but I get your reasons for leaving. I'm also very sad @therower's been banned, plus all the others you mentioned Kim who aren't here any more. I've posted nothing for a while for various reasons, but I'll be making an effort for a while as I think this is such a great thread it'd be a real shame to see it disappear.

    Good luck in all you do to those who are choosing to go, and thanks xxx

    Hi Everyone,

    More posts have been deleted from this thread, since they contained content that was, once again, breaking the forum rules.

    To be perfectly clear:
    Posts breaching the forum rules will be deleted by the moderation team.
    Members whose posts are serially deleted or edited will, in accordance with the forum rules, face sanctions against their accounts.
    Any thread where multiple rule breaches occur may be removed from view or locked.

    None of the moderation team enjoy stepping in like this, and we only do so when members choose to break the forum rules. Account sanctions only occur when a member deliberately and persistently behaves in a manner that is at odds with the clearly outlined forum rules.

    Every member agreed to the terms and conditions of the forum when they joined.
    Any member breaking the forum rules is subject to the clearly laid out consequences of their actions.

    Anyone wishing to read our perfectly reasonable forum rules can find a link in the signature below any moderator’s post.

    So I found the reason why my Dexcom was slightly painful and uncomfortable, I ended it 3 days early and I found a lot of blood underneath. I won’t put a libre on because I’m starting auto mode on Friday. Site change tomorrow and I’m pretty nervous but I got my bf on board so he’ll help me too.
