You and me both Lesley.
Green eyed monster with some on here maybe...... They went back for very unselfish reasons. How many people in this day and age give up their life to support others.....not bloody many. Put them in a home and let someone else take the responsilbilty. So good luck to them....great lads.

Re: Perking Up The Pansies

while they remain friends of mine on facebook and i admire their talent for writing still im open enough to say that the comments they made about this forum and its members were not on and they should have made amends at the time as they had a lot of support from here for both their blog and book

Because the forum has a cross section of members who have varying personalities and traits, the same as in normal life. If the members were all nicey nicey it would get pretty boring. Yes, there are spiteful members here but there are also considerate ones who would go out of their way to help others if needs arise.

I have met a few members here who are rather nice in life, as they are on this forum, I have met some who are not so nice, I could also say the same about every place I have lived, or visited on regular basis.

The most spiteful, nasty, two faced people I have met, are expats in holiday resorts.

I agree wholeheartedly. I bought the book and found it witty . What I find disturbing is the blanket lumping together of all members on here. I applaud their motives for returning but the blog still encourages vitriol , which , for the many supporters they had on this Forum and in the Bodrum area, must seem like a stab in the back.

just through his writings.

Goodbye to the Turkish Living Forum | perkingthepansies

Goodbye to the Turkish Living Forum
The Turkish Living Forum has been hijacked by religious nutters and right wing bigots. I wonít be returning. And neither will many others judging by the private messages Iíve received. The tiresome exchange (well, mostly a fascist rant from the usual suspects) on UK marriage equality was allowed to shout on for three days. Iím not talking about people who oppose same sex marriage. Thatís a difference of opinion, a legitimate example of free speech which I cherish. Iím referring to those who seem obsessed with man-on-man genital acts (always suspicious) as if being gay is all about sodomy (er, it isnít) and those who were allowed to call for the extermination of gay people (Jawohl, mein FŁhrer). Is this what the forum has been reduced to? Are the owners just in it for the hate money?


This offending comment was eventually removed by the moderators and the thread was then closed. Too little, too late, Iím afraid. The moderators were caught sleeping on the job. I will be watching from afar and if this hate campaign is allowed to continue, I will report it to the British Police as inciting hatred on the grounds of sexual orientation, a criminal offence in England and Wales since March 2010. Political correctness gone too far? Tough. You reap what you sow.
