Re: Impressed: Planters outside the Greyhound

They are always amazing. Whoever their gardener is, they really know their business. It lifts the whole appearance of that area.

Re: Christmas lights

Couldn’t agree more. It’s amazing what a simple change can achieve. Congrats to everyone involved in achieving this. A small group of us tried to get some momentum behind getting new lights when the road was being refurbished but ran out of steam before we achieved anything.

Re: Black cabbies in celebration.....

They’ll still be operating while appealing the decision. I’m a big fan of Uber for convenience, cost and what I perceived as better safety, and it’s local mini cabs rather than black taxis that have lost my trade to Uber. However, the breaches outlined in the ruling make me genuinely concerned for m...

Re: New small coffee shop inside Dragonfly Yoga

Before it opened, the person behind it, in a desperate attempt to get publicity, said in the News Shopper that having a yoga studio in Sydenham would help tackle knife crime, adding for good measure that Sydenham had a lot of gangs. Oh, really. Yeah, but no. All the profits from the two Dragonfly y...

Re: Replacing windows

We used the Sash Guy, based in East Dulwich. He bespoke makes every frame. There are lots of reviews for him on the East Dulwich Forum.

Re: Replacing windows

We replaced our rotting wooden sashes with double-glazed made-to-measure wooden sashes with Victorian detailing. You can't tell they are double glazed to look at them. They also have draught-proofing brushes built into the frames. We're very happy with them and they look the business.

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

It could be argued that those not mentioned are probably grateful not to have their own community and friends reminded that they ever associated with someone like Chris. I will always be proud of the work I did as a moderator on the SE23Life forum. I still believe the model the early mod team devel...

Possibly a typo, but I have only one Twitter account. And it is still blocked. Oh well.
I was referring also to your SE23Life account. I’ve unblocked you now.

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I've never understood the point of blocking people on Twitter, unless they are actively trolling you or being abusive (which I've never done, I hasten to add). But you blocked me. I don't believe I was ever rude or abusive, or do much on Twitter really. I did indeed block you, and I told you why wh...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

It doesn't really matter how YOU use Twitter as much as how the presidents of large countries use Twitter to announce policy shifts without consulting their advisors. And other governments and non-governments fund bots and trolls to spread fake news and discord in foreign countries or domestic 'ene...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

It all depends how you use Twitter, I think. Mine is completely non-toxic and a source of support and true friendships. It helps if there is a specific community you belong to as they can often be self-reinforcing in terms of tone and respect.

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I'm also blocked. He's commented on a tweet of yours recently too. It's very odd to block someone and then comment on their posts, knowing they won't see his response. He's done it with me, JGD and others in the past too (JGD very recently). So odd. To be fair to CB, I’m only blocked by the SE23Lif...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I think the Mods really did try to put things right to sideline Chris to the technical bit. But it doesn't appear to be working. He is using their SE23life brand and his other life sites to continue to pursue his personal vendettas as you predicted Rachael. He just can't help it. Well, I've certain...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

It would appear I'm blocked from this official though maybe not official account as well. If it is being used in the manner you suggest, it doesn't quite fit in with the new normal the mods have expressed. I'm also blocked. I've never understood the point of blocking people on Twitter, unless they ...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

It has been noted that @SE23lifeChris was attempting to trash some poor devil's reputation on Twitter by imputing that as a ne'er-do-well they should be ignored. I don't know about that, but I do see that account - which is an 'official' SE23Life account - retweeting political content from CBs pers...

While children under 8 are currently not allowed to use the lake, I've seen older children properly supervised en...

Re: Bell Green Proposals

It says the long term goal is to replace the single storey retail units with multiple level mixed retail and housing units, so presumably Sainsbury’s could stay. Looking at the currently Sainsbury’s building, I can seen it could well need levelled and rebuilt in the medium term. It’s been there a ve...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

A technical admin should never make decisions on what is appropriate content, bar obvious spam. Nor assume that issues that were deemed contentious some months ago are still under embargo. A technical admin should, at the most, temporarily hide a post and seek clarification from a moderator about wh...

The infrastructure for the wet woodland is all there - the outflow from the lake was installed some time ago. So the money has been spent already. I don’t see how there would be any safety issues with the wet woodland - it’s very shallow. It was always going to be formed after the lake was filled a...
