    We all agree on Marian's return for her insight, research abilities and no nonsense approach to life, so come on lass get yourself into gear and give us hell, most of us can take it.

    As an aside, Cappy if you sent John the 3/9d you owe him it may make him feel better.

    Still no reply from Marian , so all i can do is what has been done , up to her now!
    Cheers

    Email i sent with the Original message attached

    Hello Marian
    I had sent this via my Bigpond Mail but no reply, so may be you had Blocked that one ?
    Will now try again with this and see if it reaches you.


    Thank you for the Info on JS there was a Thread on him missing and concern from a few. At least we now know the reason. I had tried to Email him but with what was happening now know the reason for that,
    Thanks Doc


    Please read the Email attached carefully Marian, and decide what you want to do.
    Cheers

    Vern if she does not want to sign back on mate then best to do what we always did at sea when someone was reluctant to join in. Give them space but above all do not ever plead with them to join in. Have found over my life time that is what most want to happen. Either a thick skin with compassion or this is the last trip in my book. Obviously some one stirred the pot and done a good job of it and must be proud
    That's the way the mop flops.

    My thanks to Brian for this site.

    Marian has already replied to the BMN site and also sent Vernon an email using the email address he used to contact her.

    Did two emails go astray?

    With reference to #25,(and clarify other posts) I find it strange that you say you have not had a reply, as Marian sent you an email at 0931 hours on 27th Feb (today) this was in response to your email of 20th Feb to her when you had advised her that she was welcome back on the condition that she restricted herself to research subjects and other forums dictated by you. Naturally being Marian she said that she was happy to rejoin but without any restrictions and she is still awaiting a response to that email. We need people of spirit and open views, as most are on here and if we offend that is unfortunate, but some people find offense where none was intended.

    Without her keeping in touch and helping certain members off site then we would still be waiting to hear what happened to JS

    Just out of curiosity is anyone else on site restricted in what they can and cannot join in or comment upon.

    We all have our differences, but restrictions on speech and comment, have we become a '1984' or 'Animal Farm'

    It seems that there ae those on here that doubt my Sincerity in saying that i have not received any replies from Marian! This really annoys me, as i am not one to lay false claims!

    I had sent her the Emails in all good faith, and if i had received any reply, would certainly have answered!

    Please DO NOT CALL ME A LIAR!!

    I will again check my Emails both of them.

    This just now received!

    Email Snip.JPG

    This received at 10.15am Today Tuesday the 28th Feb 2023

    From: marian gray
    Sent: 27 February 2023 09:31.
    To: The British Merchant Navy - Old Friends Plus <admin@merchant-navy.net>
    Subject: Good Morning Vernon,




    Replying to the only email that I have received. Happy to return to site but without the restrictions i.e.

    limited threads, did that before and that was no fun...... all work and no play.



    Of course I will indeed strive and take heed of the site rules and if allowed to re-join will instantly block

    my nemesis and any trolls names he uses for the sake of my sanity and my high BP [at present]



    Yours Sincerely, Marian







    Now i dont know how or why (And this is no Lie) But i never sent Marian the Email via the Site, so how on Earth did she get it through the site?????? No wonder i have not got any in my Private Inboxes!

    I will now reply to Marian, so in future Please do not assume , until you know the facts!!!
