I refuse to feel paranoid about Internet chat forums where the subject should be gardening and excuse me if I happen to mention a plant someone doesn't like or refer to my patch of ground a little too enthusiastically or whatever the original grievance was.
I am feeling in the dark here because I try to steer clear of the spats, so I don't really have a clue how it all started, except the FORKERS incident.
But I am a trifle fed up with it all so I felt the need to have a moment.
Besides that, I don't much care if it is me who is being secretly disowned, I have nothing to feel ashamed about, in this ere forum anyways.

I reckon our garden is at least 3 weeks later flowering than last year! When we do get a bit of warmth the garden will explode with colour Pam LL x
True for my garden Lilylouise. I keep records every year to chart the progress I make and my garden is about four weeks behind last year.
The invitations were sent to some individuals and not to others, based on whether they were approved by one individual, no doubt in consultation with one or two others. They were sent by pm on this forum in an inappropriate, secret way. Why wasn't there a public invitation?
Those who were invited will no doubt enjoy the new forum, but that does not make what happened right. However, it has happened and we who were not invited will survive. Those who were invited and declined were honourable in their intent and, in my view, they were right.
It has happened. It was not nice but it is over. Time to move on.
