Tulse Hill news, chitter chatter and gossip

Why are you banned?
Because I got into a spat with editor. Now can't post stuff that is relevant to community etc.

It's only for a month but would be a shame not to share this stuff. Don't want to make an issue out of it but would be grateful if somebody could share on appropriate thread.

Cheers

I quite enjoy watching the two of you sparring. You both make good points, are both intelligent guys with your hearts in the right place, neither of you knows when to pack it in, but he has the ban button and you don’t so there can only be one winner.

Cheers dude

Doesn’t sound terribly fair though.

If you have any kind of complaint about any of the mods who give up their spare time to run this site at absolutely no cost you yourself - and without any advertising whatsoever - please take it to the appropriate forum, because the days of these threads getting taken over by endless personal attacks and digs are now over. This is a thread about Tulse Hill. Please stick to that topic. Thank you.
 
You wouldn't let it lie!

Taking it to the appropriate forum is a load of nonsense as we all know, because they are run by the people doing the banning. The 'rules' are a really easy way of being able to abdicate responsibility for any kind of balanced debate.

And arguing a different point of view is on the whole seen as being disruptive. And so the boards are effectively being run as a dictatorship, where if you don't agree with what is being said, you're banned or insulted or whatever. (none of what I have posted have been personal attacks or digs - just questions about the legitimacy of what is being said)

People giving up their time is a decoy. It's a rough and tumble place, but only if it suits the the main person's POV. And that's fine. As long as people are aware of it.

Sorry for kicking all this off, or escalating it or whatever it is I have done. I like both of your postings, while understanding that this cannot be a freeforall so needs moderation and appreciate editor doing so.

My final words on the subject. And will now talk about Tulse Hill only on this thread.

I see that the dry cleaner has a new sign, which is the same as the one up in W Norwood. Some form of a chain.

I used to share a flat with four other adults with only one washing machine so used to get a service wash from Mr Mohammed, who I think was two sets of owners ago, back in 2008/09. His wife also often sewed up jeans and things that would otherwise have gone in the bin.

It’s a good community resource to have, I hope it’s still as good as in his days.

So you'll just carry on after being told to stop? Then have a warning. I've told you that personal stuff is not allowed any more. If you have a complaint take it the feedback forum - where all the mods can view it - or you can complain to individual mods. This is my last post on the topic in this thread about TULSE HILL. Further disruptive, personal comments will be deleted and the poster warned.

Update: it seems that the last warning has made the system give him an automatic temp ban. Well, it's not like he's wasn't warned not to keep posting this off topic stuff here.

I think not. When this lot took over from the last, absolutely lovely, woman running the place, they put the prices up by about 50%. I don't use it anymore and other people I know used to use it don't either.

The shop in between London Pizza and Diamonds seems to have been renovated for a new use. Anyone know what it will be?

It was renovated ages ago but I notice that it seems like someone might be moving in - they've done a nice job on the outside anyway.

The crime meeting in Jubilee Hall had been interesting, although as always seems its about a process rather than a destination.

Quite.

I've made efforts engaging with Discobastard and he stops posting.

He is imo just disruptive.

Why was it interesting?

Did they discuss these plans mooted for police to carry guns in areas such as ours? It was being discussed yesterday on the news and I felt quite alarmed.

No discussion of armed police.

Interesting in sense that it was first time I'd been to a public meeting about knife crime/results of such in an area I live. A lot of posturing by usual suspects yes, but still interesting as a lot of the estate people still got to speak up and give their view (stop sending people, send resources to people already here etc)

Quite a bold statement to say you've "found a lost cat". How did they know it was lost? Cant be from a lost cat poster or they'd just contact the owner. Cats pretty much go wherever they please for as long as they want. The sign should probably read "Cat kidnapped at 119 Leigham Vale"

Probably not cat people. Anyone even the flimsiest of past experiences with cats will know they are more than happy to suddenly gain entry and spend a extended period of time at complete strangers’ homes. In particular if freebies are on offer.

If they don’t lock the cat in, it’ll of course fuck off when they least expect it without as much as a meowy thank you.

I know the people at 119 and they know everyone and everything (and most people know them too) - when I had a problem with a cat locally it was them and another neighbour I went to ask - who knows every cat in the neighbourhoord - most of them are her's for a start. If they say the cat is lost - it's probably lost. :D
