Why I’m leaving the forum—

I owe those who are actually my friends an explanation as to why I’m leaving the forum.

Please stay in touch via email or Facebook. I won’t be returning until such time Beatlebug is no longer a moderator.

She’s cold and unsympathetic and her judgment is clouded by pro-Trump propaganda, which makes her unfit to arbitrate in a fair manner.

She dismissed my feelings as invalid and suggested I should see a mental health professional because she is in denial of the sick people in Michigan lacking medical supplies because of her precious President. The governor of Michigan has been unable to procure medical supplies because vendors were told to ignore her. I have a friend in Michigan who verified this.

Her use of the shrug emoji is also offensive. I am also not the only person on the forum to be offended by her behavior. Is this a pro-Trump forum? I would think a moderator should be more fair and balanced in what she says instead of calling members mentally unstable because they disagree politically.

That’s why I’m out of here. Let me know when the waters are safe again.

@Expert Textpert.

It would be a great loss to the forum if you left and hopefully, you will reconsider.

Since this has been posted on the forum I will post here.

Since BeatleBug has posted on here, and since she has been a mod, I would be very quick to say that I doubt she ever meant to cause offence, certtainly not to the point where someone leaves, a good number of her posts are about how she doesn't mean to do so but somehow does (very much like me, god knows how many times I write posts out and then delete it out of fear of causing a nuclear meltdown on here). Additionally, all mods are allowed to have opinions, being a mod does not take that away. All forum decisions are discussed by all five of us with Joe having the final say, that's how it always has been, at least since I became a mod. What my or any other mod's opinion may be does not mean that that is what the final decision will be, to think or suggest otherwise takes away what the other four contribute. Beatlebug has always been fair and willing to compromise on all decisions made when it comes to the forum, to suggest otherwise is wide of the mark and unfair.

I know nothing of anything mentioned above however if anyone has an issue with a mod or anything else to do with the forum please contact the others and we look into it, preferably off-topic as it's easier to discuss openly without the world looking on. I'm not saying we will act in the way desired but we have always been open in how we deal with everything.

I also will add that we have a discussion that moves to Trump and now we have this. So I was right. Do I win a prize? If so, I want unlimited crisps until this damn virus is over.

It was pointed out to me by a friend and it's bloody true!! Since I can't imagine a stylist/hairdresser/tanner can get into the White House- Trump's hair has got considerably greyer and his skin looks far less orange!

Head down, eyes forward and yell "SOCIAL DISTANCING" any time someone so much as glances at you. They'll take you as a raving loon and nobody will want to come anywhere near you- job done.

I opt for the jumping back if anyone gets close before giving them a look of 'WTF'. You also now have the added delight of being allowed to deliberately avoid people by taking a very wide circle out of their path, you look mad but it's saving the world. Turn it into a game, it's fun.

Just over half-hour queue. Would have been longer but two or three in front of me, this woman brushed past me to the guy in front, "That's so lucky!"

It wasn't.

Security guard on the door noticed, even if I didn't complain. Let them stand there till the next customer came out, pointed at them, said, "Do you two live together? Back of the queue separately." Then he waved me in.

Didn't have my favourite cheese (petite ash) or milk powder for coffee, but pretty well stocked.

Three cheers for security guard.

Also, the fact that of all the things it's the cheese that's missing is quite funny. Here, it's tinned fish.

I can generally find most things at my store except for the obvious toilet paper. It kinda baffles me that of all things, that is what is missing.

My mam bought a heap of toilet paper in January 'cause it was on sale- we're sorted 😉 .

There was toilet paper and hand sanitiser in Tesco when I was in buying stamps. I didn't buy either as I currently have plenty.

Strange times when a post on a Beatles forum is covering the availability of loo roll and hand wash in the local store.

Hand sanitiser in stock?!? My God . I managed to get 2 in mid-February and 3 in late February because I was thinking things would kick off. By the first week in March, you couldn't get a hold on any.

I have bought three sanitizers and toilet roll just before it all got insane.

Candy cane scented, whatever that is as I haven't used up the bottle I had when bought.

Candy cane scented? Nice.

Three of mine are professional, ordinary, you-think-I'm-an-alcoholic-because-of-the-smell scent, my other two are strawberry scented and came in a unicorn pouch design.

I wonder will this have an effect on how we treats others after this? Like in France, will they just forever stop kissing one another on the cheek as a greeting because they're now going months without doing it and they've become aware how unsanitary it is?

If we are talking about scented candles, I should mention that I do have a weird-smelling orange scented candle given to me by my grandma. It smells a bit weird but I'm not one to forgo on a free gift. I'm yet to understand why my aunt calls me "cheap".

I really don't understand why the BBC News Channel are still having a sports presenter come in and present a sports bulletin every hour. There is no feckin' sport anywhere for the foreseeable future, and the news presenter is quite able to announce the next event that's cancelled.

Can see the point of the business presenter still coming in, but the sports presenters just sit there and say there isn't any. Not exactly essential workers at the minute.

Did some shopping in Aldi this morning. Social distancing is really difficult when you're piloting a trolly. Worst part was, I realised as I was putting my stuff on the till conveyor belt that I didn't have my card with me to pay for it all, so I had to call my mum to help me paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

It's because we cannot cope not knowing what Harry Kane or Lewis Hamilton thinks about doing sod all every day. Highly important to get us all thru this difficult time. I personally look forward to the BBC letting us know what Gary Linekar has tweeted about some random world event as it would far too time-consuming to look at his own twitter page if I gave a damn.
