Hello all. Stumbled across your forum a few weeks ago & thought it was about time to join.
I've followed the McCann case for quite a few years now but rarely comment on any media platform. More of a watch & wait type !
Looking forward to reading the perspectives of this forum.

Welcome Mr or Ms X - an unusual user name.

I hope that you will become less unknown as time goes on.

Welcome Unknown Soldier.

It`s one of the things I appreciate about this forum - that different perspectives are allowed - and discussed politely. A rare thing these days.

Thank you Freedom and Mimi.

I'm showing my age again but the only song I can think of is Universal Soldier by Donovan.

Hello and welcome from me Unknown_Soldier.

Hope Freedom won't mind, but is this it??

Yep, it is Bluebell & hello to you.
Close Freedom. Same era & no, I'm not quite that old Smile

Edited to say, actual video was revolutionary in its time and received a wholesale media ban.

Hello one and all

Post  Lois Jones on Mon 10 Jul 2017, 12:35 pm

Hi All,

Long-time reader of JH forum.  Never joined as the treatment of Newbies was appalling imho.  Decided to join here so will enjoy catching up with all the threads.  I recognise a lot of names too.  

Lois


Good start, posted a new topic instead of a reply and can't delete. Can you help me Admin? Should be in introductions. Very Happy Very Happy

A reply to 'Candyfloss' from the other thread.

I hope you don't mind me answering it here? I've been following this case ever since I switched on the news that Friday morning and watched it unfold. I've been involved in many a fora in the early days and know a lot of the *personalities* that surround it. That's from forums, facebook, Twitter and blogs. I keep in touch sporadically with some of these *names*.

I usually just "lurk" nowadays but I do like to take an interest when the games get played out. Nothing is quite what it seems.

John

JohnnyH, I've transferred your post here as a new member.

There certainly are and have been games played on both sides of the fence - meaning those who support the McCanns and those who don't.

I don't know what attracted you particularly to the Ben / Andrew saga but it really is my hope that it is sorted out away from the public eye as it should be.

We need to move on and ignore those who only want to disrupt forums.

Welcome, by the way!

P.S. I forgot to say that, if anyone wants to "talk" further about Andrew or Ben, please do so on Twitter and / or Facebook as it is nothing to do with this forum.

Thank you for the welcome @ Freedom.

When you observe quietly from the background and not get caught up in the "games" then sometimes it becomes slightly more clearer.

The Ben / Andrew saga interested me as I have spoken privately to both in the past. Ben on his Facebook group quite some time back. Fred or Andrew on Twitter fairly recently when this forum was mentioned and it was all going a bit "gung-ho". I do use Twitter but I'd rather not give my handle on that at the moment if that's okay.

I'm still a member of CMOMM although my last post there was made back in 2014. Rarely looked in on the forum until I read on Twitter about this "battle" going on. Nothing really surprises me with the antics of a certain person over there. To say he has previous form with this type of behaviour is a massive understatement!!

Just be wary of the games here though. When it goes quiet again then it's usually the calm before the storm!!

John

Sorry for the delayed response @ Costello.

Should I know you? Been on forums and groups around but no idea who you are? Apart from seeing you on here and growing slightly with confidence?

A new topic?

Post  AnOldFriend on Tue 19 Dec 2017, 11:15 pm

An old friend would like to say 'happy Xmas' to ALL!

Some old 'really good friends' on here! (Long time no speak), and that's great! You all take care! X

Hello, old friend, I've merged your post with an existing topic.

May I ask who you were before - could you not have revived the old account?

Welcome, anyway.

There's  something strange going on here.
This morning at 03:23 I received an email from MMM:

Hello Châtelaine,

You receive this e-mail because you are watching the topic, "Say hello and introduce yourself here" at "MADELEINE McCANN MYSTERY". This topic has received a reply since your last visit. You can use the following link to view the newly posted replies, no more notifications will be sent until you visit the topic.

http://maddiemccannmystery.forumotion.co.uk/t32p975-say-hello-and-introduce-yourself-here#99399


and just now at 10:36 the same message, but with another reference: #99406

I can assure you that I was not watching your forum as early as 3 am and i certainly didn't recently post anything in this thread.

To mention that my email accounts have been hacked last week, including this chatelaine-one. Everything has meanwhile been restored, so how come I get these messages from you? Is there something you can figure out technically from your side?

With thanks in advance :-)

@Chatelaine.......

There is a line at the bottom of the page under the page numbers saying 'watch this thread' or similar.  You must have accidentally clicked when clicking a page number by accident.  Every time someone then posts on that thread you get an email to let you know. So , AnOldFriend posted and you got one, then Freedom posted so you had another... I think that is it.

Look below the page numbers and click 'stop watching this thread

You must have posted on this topic at some time in the past and that's how you got a notification firstly for my post at silly o'clock this morning. Thanks to my neighbours, I couldn't sleep.

Remember too that everytime you post on a thread, you'll be watching it which will send emails again.

I think to receive notifications you must click the 'watch this topic' at the bottom of the page.. 

Once you click 'stop watching this topic' you should not receive any notifications at all.
