I respectfully disagree that it was beginning to go around in circles.
There is a story in Cymbal's thread.
In a fairly accurate order:
Nosey Cymbal casually asks for LBSWM.
People miss her or dismiss her absence.
People tell Cymbal that LBSWM is definitely reading not posting.
Cymbal posts on forum for LBSWM to contact her.
Cymbal gets no reply.
People tell Cymbal LBSWM is not here.
People suggest other avenues.
Cymbal posts on forum for LBSWM to contact her as a matter of urgency.
Moderator appears and contacts LBSWM.
Poster answers a discrepancy on post.
Not exactly boy meets girl but where is the happy ending?
I thought threads are locked only when forum rules are broken. There are many frivolous and lighthearted threads on the forum that are not locked.Whether it is 4 or 16 pages, there should still an opportunity for someone else who is contact with LBSWM or have the means to contact her to alert her. Presumably even for LBSWM if she is reading to reply.
Poster needs help, poster asks for help, poster gets help or in this case, no joy yet. I don't see any necessity to lock the thread. Defo a conspiracy! There are still other posts that do not even get a single reply and are not locked or deleted. People answer posts from months ago when they return from wherever they were. The door should always be open.Tippy,I love a conspiracy but not this one for I am another LBSWM fan. I agree with Cymbal, why your thread? If you won a lottery and you didn't know, you'd want people to come find you to let you know. It's no different to looking for someone.
I hope you hear from her soon, Cymbal and if not, my best wishes to you to get your problems solved. Are you sure none of the many people here cannot even give you a little help or even point you in the right direction?
Now it is my turn to say that if you are out there reading, LBSWM , my very best to you. I am one of the many who love your posts and enjoy your craziness. I hope you find your 'voice' again and forget the pettiness that seems to consume the forum now and then.Your 'Hub of Humanity' has all sorts, we need more of your sort. I miss your big heart and your toothy smile.
Since you are a regular member using another alias, I will humour you on some points you have made.
1, There is nobody else who is in contact with LBSWM, that I know with certainty.
2, Your post is self explanatory as to why the thread was locked. Silly innuendos of conspiracies do absolutely nothing to help the situation apart from harbour feelings of unrest amongst members.
3, As you claim to be a fan of LBSWM, you will be well aware that I have a huge respect for her, which is why I will not continue to discuss LBSWM's matters on a public forum, viewable to the public.
4, Just so that you are aware, amongst her manyâ€
