I believe from all posts I made in this thread not a single one was targeted at you, apart from those where you quoted me while I was in a discussion with another member. So if you want to understand what I am posting it would help if you would read the whole discussion, which you can't, because some posts have already been deleted. Trust me, although I disagree with you on the raised eyebrow thing, my reaction would be completely different if it would be just you who I am talking to.OK you have really annoyed me now - I never threw a tantrum, I merely said I didn't appreciate it's use. Post #371... "(So I don't appreciate the raised eyebrow then.) " Anything after that post is me responding to you and someone else's comments about me. There are apparently other posts which I cannot see but you are going well over the top about this as far as my remark was concerned.
Fact - the information was put out ON THE FORUM in a short post buried in page 41 of a series of wistful reminiscences by people entering a competition - (to me that is BURIED @Max Factor ) - the OP of that thread was edited by a moderator to show the new date but the thread title wasn't edited to highlight that information had changed. It isn't as if it would have destroyed a rain-forest to make a thread saying "offer extended" - after all that is what making a tweet does - a new thread - do we have to conserve forum space?
So "raising an eyebrow" is basically sarcastically saying "how did you miss that" and is rude.
Community managers should communicate effectively with the community - sticking something deep in a thread isn't "communicating effectively" - it is sloppy. Then basically insulting someone who hadn't delved deep enough to see their words is just totally uncalled-for.
I never made a fuss about this, just said I didn't appreciate the "emoji" - I repeat, all I said was "(So I don't appreciate the raised eyebrow then.)", subsequent muck-raking has not been at my instigation so the only tantrum I have had is at people having a go at me.
