Why Oh Why ?

Are we having threads subtitled "Questions for Escorts" or "Questions for Punters" on the forum ?
I hesitate to jump into the first category, as I may not be welcome to put forward my, possibly valid, opinion there, as it says it's a "girls only question". Similarly, I guess some of the ladies would be loathe to post in the second category :(

As I have seen sufficient evidence of us all being guilty of "cross threading", why maintain this rather odd state of affairs ?

I hope Admin reads this one :yahoo:

Yes I agree, do I get the feeling I shouldn't add my opinion for the punter section equally. Maybe it just helps to find threads that apply to you, but i don't see why we should be so strict on not cross threading.

I think the unwritten rule will become more about who provides the first answers. I have noticed that on the QFE, punters jump in about 3 or 4 entries down and vice versa on the QFP.

Maybe this will naturally work itself out. I for one find the distinction useful so I can zoom in on the punter questions :unknown:

And there are almost three times as many questions for escorts as questions for punters, yet at the moment there are far fewer escort members. I suspect that some punters are asking questions of the ladies because they like the "attention" they think they are getting if an escort replies and agree that it might be better to get rid of the distinction.

I'm sure there's a thread on here where Admin has asked for views on this very subject. He is trying it out to see how it works. I've weighed in with my thoughts but it's one of those things that will evolve over time and either work or not. If people decide not to use it, it will gradually fade away.

Update: here's the thread - see below.

When they first appeared I asked admin if it was ok for punters to post on question for WG threads and he said yes it was, that's fortunate in my view given the percentage of them compared to question for punters or neither threads so far.

You are free to post on ANY thread you wish to, anyone that says anything different isn't following the clear advice admin has given.

Personally I will post on any thread I choose to until and unless admin says different.

Totally not seeing it that way JB. My only concern is this becomes a place where only a limited number of wgs join up. EE's have already been mentioned that they may feel awkward because of perceived language deficiencies. For my part I am just being myself, no smartass, no bollocks, just me and hopefully we will reach a point where wgs will flood in because they see it as friendly and inviting.

So I will ask anything that comes into my head and I hope everyone else does the same.

Not trying to be sanctimonious just blatantly honest I hope :hi:

I wonder how do they sleep at night with too many questions in their mind. :sarcastic:

Me ? lighten up ?
I'm only trying to be a good, decent member of the best forum I have come across in ages ( Pun ? ) ;)
I hesitate to speak directly to Admin, as he must be very busy indeed already with this site having "taken off like a rocket " :yahoo:

Jasmine Kisses ( formerly Yvonne, Angel of the North ) is of EE background but has been around the NE of England long enough that you would hardly know, and her English Language skills are better than some natives ;).
Anyone on here know her well enough to invite her to join ?

Oops my mistake, and sorry if i seemed paranoid :blush:
I'm quite new to all this, despite being a "Well-Known Member" on this site, but I don't want to upset or offend anyone on here ( especially the ladies who I love to hear from :wacko: )

Sorry, this is going over my head. I made a point, was quoted and told to lighten up. Had nothing else to contribute on the matter and didn't particularly want to get into a pointless online argument. What's the issue?
