I think we need to Channel this discussion in a more Manche-able direction.

She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

GENERAL MODNOTE
Handy andy, the below post that you made contains personal attacks:

I would suspect you know nothing of dolphins and have never swam with them. I also suspect you know little about life and are struggling to keep your pathetic attention seeking head above water. Your responses are pathetic as I suspect you are in life and in everything you have ever done or will achieve. :confused:

Attention seeking in adults is often an indication of child hood abuse, were you abused? do you want to talk about that instead of anything related to this or any other thread. If so you are on your own, I am not a head shrink. Perhaps some one else can help you. :ill:

Making personal attacks against other forum members is not allowed, as is spelled out in our Forum User's Agreement, paragraph 1.2.c, to which you agreed when you joined our forum.

Hi

It was a mistake for me to post on your forum, I was continually attacked by fallible, from the outset, my parting remark to her was insignificant in comparison to the abuse I received. I would appreciate it if you could delete all my posts on your forum, I tried but you do not appear to have the option. I will be taking no further part in your forum.

It's one thing to abandon a forum because you don't like it.
It's another thing to fabricate lies about other people attacking and abusing you.

Failing to realise you're merely offended by your position being criticised was the mistake.


I was continually attacked by fallible, from the outset, my parting remark to her was insignificant in comparison to the abuse I received.


No you weren't and no it wasn't.


I would appreciate it if you could delete all my posts on your forum, I tried but you do not appear to have the option.


Posts aren't deleted here. But take comfort in the fact that they'll be valuable as an example for others on how not to post.


I will be taking no further part in your forum.


I'll remain sceptical of that.
