Im back

Smokin - im sorry for your loss.

im not sure people were knocking your advice, just the way it was given at times. We are all different and even though we may ask for advice some may not feel able to carry it out. Sometimes life gets in the way, not all on here may have the time and energy to spend on their gardens, whatever their passion. It would be a shame if you feel unable to continue on the forum, your advice is of course valuable, but wish you well if we don't hear from you again. Remember, no one disputes your knowledge, but it may be worth while stepping back a little to look and appreciate others feelings and abilities. Best wishes.

    SD, you have been given advice on etiquette and you seem not to have heard it or chosen not to act upon it.

    I repeat, it is not your advice that has been questioned.

    Why does it hurt and annoy you so much when others do as they do? surely this is wasted energy and can only cause you yourself distress. It seems similar to road rage, but what is the point of being angry at some one elses mistakes?

    Consider the advise yoiu have been given, perhaps apply it to all aspects of life.

    does it matter if people don't have gardens, if they fantasise, its not our problem.

    I guess im saying, relax a little.

    Best wishes

    You just don't get it do you?  You were rude and unkind about people who were asking for help.  

    You've obviously never felt the need to ask for advice.

    People don't like to be told that they are stupid. 

    That's all you have to remember before you make an observation.

    Your knowledge was never doubted,your manner of giving advice was,as has been pointed out many times recently.

    From you starting this thread which is only a repetition of how the comments went on other threads is clear you don,t get it.

    If you choose to leave the forum,so be it.

    It seems that you should be taking some of the good advice you have been giving out

    One of the big problems today is people do not like being told "NO" they dont like being told what to do for the best, and the same people have problem after problem.


    You appear to be having problem after problem not with the content of your messages but the manner in which they have been written and people on the forum have tactfully pointed this out to you.

    It sounds like it is now up to you to take on board your own advice and observations and those of the board and see if you can sow your seeds more productively...image

    that swift uppercut was precise and to the point.
