[quote=Diddididi;57484399]unfortunately I wasn't around because I wasn't well, but she could have messaged me instead of going it about in the manor she did, I would have checked and looked into anything with pleasure, to say I disappointed is an understatement[/QUOTE

Thanks Diddididi for your posts. Speaking personally I didn't sign up for Loys as I'm not on twitter or FB.

I am very sad that there are splits and unpleasantness and people upset. I personally appreciate John but I actually think he doesn't really want to communicate with 'fans, appreciators whatever' on a regular basis. He always seemed a rather private person to me. If he wanted PR surely he would have engaged Mark or Sean to do this, after all that's the business they are in.

I just hate to see anyone upset and hope that the situation resolves itself. Disagreements in cyberspace are so much more difficult to resolve as you can't see the person face-to-face.

There is no Horror books?
Hey, ask for one to be put on the list. Book groups are all about reading books you might not normally read. And I have never read a Stephen King, so suggest the one you think is the best.

Nothing i think thats the way he wants it.
Good morning.

Have to say I agree with you ellemay.

Sorry no horror books on the list bblover. Put one on the next time - I read one horror book by Stephen King - The Green Mile. Couldn't sleep for a week - how come I'm so sensitive?

I have been away from here for a day or two, and wow! have things kicked off ! I am very sorry that people have been so upset (especially you, ucra, as you are such a long time and loyal supporter of John). As usual, Alex is the voice of reason I think the above post is extremely well balanced, so far as I understand the issues ........ Thanks Alex
It's sad for me as an outsider to see a group of John's long loyal supporters arguing. However, a lot of us from another thread have already been there - many times. I hope you can resolve those differences. What resolved it for me and others at the time was the friendships we'd made through the thread and, I know some of you might think this is sacrilege, but aren't those more important than how you support someone hundreds of miles away who, be honest (and this is me speaking as someone who's supported John in the past), has shown not a huge amount of interest in his fans? Personally, I respect his reasons for that, sad as it is. I love reading this thread for all sorts of reasons and it would be a shame if some of you stopped posting because of this.

As Alex says, different views can try to be respected without resorting to angry argument. If not, then anyone is welcome in TS. That's why we set it up, to give people who felt their views were no longer being treated with respect, a place to vent. TS has moved on from all that now and we rarely, if ever these days, discuss John or Josie. But we do discuss occasionally lots of other interesting things.

I know some people perceive my posts as being patronising. They are not meant to be. This is just a suggestion made kindly with lots of sympathy because I know what it feels like when a thread is at odds with itself.

Morning Kay, morning all. I think it will settle down, people have felt let down on both side's of the debate, but it's probably time to move forward now. I think we have to remember that at the heart of John James there is a very tender loving person and this person wanted to show his respect and appreciation for a group of people who have supported him. It seems like John singled them out, and this time he probably did but in the past, John as gone out of his way to make sure many different groups and individuals have benefited from his interactions. I remember when John had to cancel a PA - he found time later that evening to come on a web-cam and spend time with us,so we did not feel too let down. He is just a nice chap and wants to make people who care about him feel good. If he could get round each and every genuine supporter I am sure he would.

Let's hear it for the boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with what you say about John. I wasn't being critical of him. It appears he's gone back to his life in Oz and is carrying on with it there. Fair enough! And I have no idea what his interaction is with the Loys, only what gets leaked out. So for all I know he may be chatting to them every day. To the rest of us, it just seems that he's moved on.

Is this shit still going on?

I Always saw you as a rational poster Ucra,believe it or not,i know you are upset,but frankly you are also exaggerating,i had no intention to patronise you,i come on here for lighthearted fun

Maybe once you calmed down,you'll see why i think your post were OTT.

Pls,don't take it personally,i am only addressing your posts,not the poster.
Where has that come from? 'Exaggerating' is not a word associated with me.The issue is I am a writer and I wrote some posts in a proffessional writing style.You read my published article 'Uganda Equator'.Two white circles were written about in proffessional style,that is what you are calling 'exaggeration' it called 'description' in writing.

We write text with emotion to bring out emotions of the reader.I was upset,in that state my proffessional writing skills will kick in.It is not 'exagerration' at all (eg the spiteful posts were being liked, and I felt the heat of ticks like toungues of fire flying out of a furnace burning my fingers as I tried to nervously type a response.I was sweating like a bull.) I can describe that momment like this for anyone reading to get my emtions at the time,it is not exaggeration!

I dont normally post in writing style so you have never seen itxx

strange reason LF is on facebook a social networking site..FACT

I have help run a website which includes a forum since 1998,till my health took a turn for the worse I was regular poster and surely it doesn't matter when you joined I was made very welcome so I have a very good grasp of social networking sites and forum usage

you said and by the way there is not now nor never has been an Admin called Joanne, you were advised and I have just re read it all if you had a problem to take to inbox if you chose not to it was up to you

I will say again I have never ever bullied anyone and am utterly disgusted that you even suggest it

and you are right it would never work because you actually seen unable to listen to my point of view what so ever


to everyone else I am really sorry about this in my opinion upset or not this should have never been brought across here at all it is totally unfair on all of you and for that I apologise

take care xxx

I do not wish to continue with this disccussion as it has become fake.You are now denying your own members and make up stories advised by who? where is this tagged or in boxed?I just read a post there after the argument was deleted an another listing all the admin names.I am past caring. I have said all that I have to say,it is on a public forum.John James and all his fans can read it and make up their minds.I do not want this to drag other members on this thread.I am one of the two longest posters here and has respect for all those who are here.My loyalty lies with the JJAT,John James knows me from this thread and I just wanted to share an experience with them.Loys Forever created an opportunity for me to address this out side the group,that was your decision.At least I am not an egg on twitter venting out to you.I am a real person and you know who you are talking to.I stand by everything I have said and done.Can we please move on and let the JJAT get on with their debates?
