Spring is in the air everywhere I look around, and I dont know if im being foolish or if im being wise, but its something I have to believe in and its there when I look in your eyes.
Yes spring friends, mind my springing days are behind me.

    Oooh I see what you did there  <3  I love the original by John Paul Young! 

    I'm happy to see the brighter days before us as well.  I've spotted some little lambs in fields close by to where I live and the daffodils are in bloom too.  Spring brings with it such hope and I think we all especially need some of that this year  :)

    Spring is my favourite season 

    Better weather , lighter nights,  flowers blooming , new beginnings 

    Just the right season to come out of lockdown

    Lets hope that was the last lockdown! I am looking forward to the shops opening but I think I will leave it a few days before I go walking around town. I am sure all the shop swill be packed and town will be really busy for the first couple of  days.

    After lockdown haircuts, is the length of queue indicative of quality of cut or merely desperation.

    After a quick Google, some people seem to say it's a flurry of yeti @dfs050365. Quite fitting I think :D

    I was thinking that my comments are still being censored after a couple of gamechangers decided to talk rubbish. Its not my fault that they dont get that the system doesn't care.
    One said that planning a journey was cut and dried, nothing to debate. In fact that is not true. So I put to you gamechangers to be on top of your game cause its not a game to many of us.
    If your gamechangers are going to have a holier than thou attitude then it is going to cause people to take umbridge. So I object to my comments being censored as I believe your gamechangers should take half the blame. Are they being  censored. No of course not.
    Many thanks

    Hi David @dfs050365)

    Firstly, I assume that when you say your posts are being censored that you are referring to our moderation policy, and us putting accounts on "moderation". 

    Nobody is immune to our community guidelines and therefore we judge posts on an individual basis and will occasionally take action to remove or edit comments when guidelines have been breeched.

    I'm sorry to read that you aren't happy with the advice you received on the community, or with the way in which your comments have been moderated, but I can assure you that the community team haven't given preferential treatment to any user. Incidentally, if you are unhappy with a particular comment on the community, please use the "flag" button to report it to the community team so that we can take a look. Alternatively, drop an email to [email protected] and we can have a chat about it.

    I appreciate that sometimes it can be hard to judge tone when reading a comment written on a forum, but I can assure you that those who have responded to you will have had the best intentions and will have wanted the best for you. It's normal for people to disagree on certain aspects, but as long as it is done respectfully then debate is a healthy thing to have.

    To clarify, "disability gamechanger" is a rank on the community, not a role. Users will attain that rank for reaching X number of posts.

    I have removed part of your comment as I believe it contained a full name, and I will be closing this discussion because it seems to have served it's purpose.
