    We are aware that there have been a recent spate of 'naughty' posts - we hope people will agree that we have responded quickly to the removal of these as soon as they are pointed out to the team and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our lovely members for helping us keep this board the happy friendly environment that it is. :hug2:

    Regretably the internet is a place populated by a minority of sick minded individuals and as this site grows and expands for all the right reasons ,it will also begin to attract the attention of the nutters , it is our very nature to trust newcomers to the site although we do make rudimentary checks on new members these are never foolproof, we believe in trusting people first and banning only when necessary.

    We understand that this means on occasion a wrong'un will slip through but rather that than lose someone who could add to this amazing community we have forged.

    Thank you all for your help and understanding, only by working together can we help to beat this.

    I have a couple of sites that can help keep the nutters at bay- It allows you to see if they have been a problem and it let's you know the nature of the Ip- if you all are interested...lol you may already use these 2 lol.

    No Lozzy, you aren't and wouldn't be! Nor are any of our dear members. These are as Skywatcher says, sick minded people who have nothing to do with their little lives than to spread pornography to sites where children and gentle people are. Gives them a feeling of pleasure on some level, I'd guess.

    We do take care of them as fast as we come across them, but there do seem to be "seasons" where they come in spates, fast and furious. We always need each members help on these sorts of things.

    For those of you who have taken the time to report a post that has concerned you we give you our thanks. :hug2:

    Take care now, everyone! It's a rough world out there! :sigh:
