I have been on Fabulous 40 since October 2008 when I joined I will admit I was at a very low ebb I had lost my sister / best buddy and I remember staying up for weeks on end having huge fun and laughing and yes at the same time we also had controversial posts – some people will remember the Sarah Palin  post ......... say no more.

The main ethos of the Fab 40  site is to help our fellow sister – the road of life is often bumpy and people do hit those bumps with some force and if we can help soften the blow then hey we do and step forward and lend a hand.

But yesterday I shook my head in dismay at the cat fight and name calling over something which normally would have been just a healthy lively debate – I have followed my own rule and didn't wade in during the fight – at 49 one of the big parts of growing up  (that's the operative words) I have learnt to pick my fights and having a 24 hour rule and now 24 hours are up I have to say I hope we never have a repeat of yesterday's behaviour and churlish , childish comments.

Now this is quite out of character for me as I'm usually the Northern bird who cracks a joke to defuse the situation but yesterday I was very upset about seeing a few friends rounded on and having quite deep and nasty character assassinations made about them by other members - so take this post as a bit of a housekeeping post so we keep the spirit of Fab40 alive  

If you don't like a post you're not compelled to read or comment

If you disagree with a post be considerate.

If you have nothing nice to say "shut up" ..........

Now can we go back to being women over 40 who are fabulous please?

Love it
