PM a moderator about it, they'll handle it for you.



There used to be a list of who all the mods are but I can't find it right now. They have their names displayed in orange anyway, just in case you don't know.

^^^



cos VB gets all consuming and they don't have the willpower to ever leave?



cos they find themselves popping in for a visit after school every night, and then at 2am realise they're still here and haven't done their homework or had any tea, and they're getting tired and hungry and dropping out?



cos they get rilled up by things they read, and keep wanting to post things in response in the spur of the moment that they maybe shouldn't, and then come back to see who replied and what they said, and then they get cross again, and its turning into a vicious cycle and doing their head in?



sometimes knowing that you can't log in, can't see pics, and can't post, helps take the enthusiasm off the idea of visiting. and if visiting is causing you a problem, not visiting can be a handy solution.

Because that's what their horoscope says?

You are facing some new problems in your life. Some old friends will come back to your life, but you will also have to be better in touch with your emotions. The first thing you'll do is ban yourself from VeggieBoards.

Uh huh. The Geminis are self-banning, and the Scorpios are getting pregnant. It's just the way of things according to the stars.
