Have you ever wanted to ask a question of an EB member, but you have never game enough to ask as you haven't 'chatted' before and don't want to seem like a 'stalker'?  biggrin.gif

Well curiosity has gotten the better of me now and there is somebody on EB who is working with a friend of mine IRL, but I don't know who that person is on here. I know their name, but I won't say it as I don't know if they use their real name on here. Also if I knew her username I would have sent a PM saying 'hey! original.gif

JFTR: I have no problem with being ' outed' as I don't say things on here that I haven't said IRL. (Well I don't talk as much about the workings of my hoohaa IRL as what  do on here  tongue.gif )

So if you wanted to ask a question, any question, to a member, what would it be?

ETA: My brain and my fingers can't seem to do the same thing lately!

ETAA: no nasty questions though, that should be dealt with via PM.

Nope that was just a fleeting thought. Unless somebody organises it, I really can't be bothered doing anything. And yes I LOVE you for saying my 30th.

I really want to know who is stalking our Grad group. There are about 6 active members, it gets a post every few days, but I have often logged in and over 20 people have been reading as guests, more as members!

So, seriously - who are the stalkers and FGS Why!!?

I'm sorry to hear of Bel Rowley's husband being unwell sad.gif

A lot of people will be doing it now lol You'll most probably find they aren't looking at your profile, but are actually checking out your post history.

I totally get that with the MC support group and the PAM group itself, but the Grad group - it's just like any other group, we talk about kids milestones and the boring mundanity of our lives (one started kinder, one hasnt been sleeping well...)

If you are in the same situation PLEASE JOIN - we love new people biggrin.gif

You will find it comes up in the 'We are discussing..' and people go in to see what it's about - like me when I wanted to know what it stood for.

Sometimes I have seen things (Stalk or Be Stalked, Lots to Lose etc) posts with #121 come up in the "We are discusssing." I will click onto them to see what they are about. I don't stalk them (ie click back into them after the inital time), but I may have once been the other member down the bottom while I was finding out what it was. If I saw something that said PAM grads I probably would have clicked to find out what PAM means too. Obviously after reading this I know

ETA: Just saw PP has said similar to me as well

Greenbag has indeed had her baby, a gorgeous baby boy. I wouldn't hold my breath for photos though, she is very reluctant to post any information about him online, even on her FB, so I'm guessing EB will be a definite NO.

One who is in favour of tarts - ie argues with people who are s*ut-shaming. Stems from a recent breastfeeding thread.

No. I brought him inside and gave him a comfy place to lie down. The weight of those bollocks was making the poor dear droop from exhaustion. You can tell from the photo.
