So can we ban 'begging' threads, or even threads started by other people to have a whip round for posters?

Hello there

We're suspending this thread now. We're grateful that the issue was raised and glad to have been able to give a response that most folks seem happy with. But we can see that this thread is now in danger of turning into a bunfight, so we're going to lock it.

BIWI Thu 22-Nov-12 21:41:02

Oh no, Hecate, I am not worthy!

It really is only the fault of the nasty people.

Hec, you could go nuts, invent a whole new identity!

echo, bark at my dog and he will....

... run away like the wuss he is.

NorksAreMessy Thu 22-Nov-12 21:28:00

pinot are you BEGGING for a kitten, because that is not allowed. smile

However, I am happy to make you one as a gesture of love and generosity from one woman to another, even though I do not really know you in real life.
It is my choice to do this and even though you might sell the hand crafted work of art that I will make for you, I accept that is your right and my gift is freely given.

EchoBitch Thu 22-Nov-12 21:19:58

Who said 'the road to hell is paved with good intentions'?

Seems particularly apposite today.

FrankincenseWippery Thu 22-Nov-12 21:19:43

How would it look BIWI? Like a cheerier version of The Scream?

NorksAreMessy Thu 22-Nov-12 21:18:44

pinot my kitten-loving friend, I will swap you a hand-made kitten for the faintest idea of what s going on.
I am confused, but I know how to make things. Including kittens.

(but not live ones)

Pinot Thu 22-Nov-12 21:18:00

BIWI is the new Hecate.

BIWI Thu 22-Nov-12 21:17:59

Actually, could we have an [aghast] emoticon, please?

FrankincenseWippery Thu 22-Nov-12 21:16:58

Excellent post BIWI.

FrankincenseWippery Thu 22-Nov-12 21:15:14

Not just wine, oh no. Baileys, jäger, vodka and a tonne of chocolate. My older 3 looked longingly at the haul but I told them to fuck off and buy their own. Like I'm going to share my stash with them.

Portofino Thu 22-Nov-12 21:14:59

Quite BIWI.
