Sorry, I think that's a rather patronising and disappointing reply that doesn't encourage discussion but makes me feel slapped down.


That wasn't my intention, and I'm sorry for any offence. You were (as I see now re-reading your post) very clearly talking about the extended canopies rather than the overall roof, but somehow I missed that. My bad.

I think you are also suggesting that the fact that the main roof was badly repaired in 1986 does not excuse the lack of maintenance elsewhere. I would have to agree.

Thanks for that, it's appreciated. I think the fact that several people had liked your post particularly wound me up, given the tone I read into it, hence my aggrieved response.

It happens quite a lot on here, quite a few people either don't realise they are doing it or enjoy aggravating people, often the ons who have been on here the longest. It would just be nice if people thought about what they typed before typing.

I don't imagine for one moment that Red Squirrel was deliberately trying to aggravate me. Your second comment is undoubtedly true of social media generally, but I wouldn't say this forum is any worse than others, and actually probably a lot better. Still, the apology was very much appreciated and has been accepted, so the matter is closed as far as I am concerned.

I rather thought a misunderstanding had happened and been cleared [edit to add - thank you for confirming that, Celestial] ... moving on, with members better understanding each other.

Some of us old hands can indeed irritate - if I mention Melksham more than a couple of dozen times a day, for example. But there's no enjoyment with that irritation.   There are other times that we irritate or are sharp with others without realising it - you, too, southwest (and I have mentioned it once or twice) can do so. Let's understand than and talk on.  And if any of us, really, enjoy aggravating then perhaps this is not the place for us.
