] I'll accept that you didn't come in by the front door. It's technically possible, and it had crossed my mind ,as a possible explanation, that you didn't realise just how big Pemberley is. I'll buy the idea that you never tried to click on the home button to find out where you were- it's possible. I'll even buy the idea that you felt shy , and didn't know the ropes. You wished that someone had asked you to post a bio. I don't remember you asking if there was anything you needed to do, but if you had, someone would have explained to you.
] I'm sorry that you think me not gentle enough. I had tried giving you a few gentle hints before, and assumed that either you had not found them, or were ignoring them. I repeat ,that I posted my messages with the full knowledge of several people, none of whom thought my words too strong. Anyone who reads the Regency Board has the right to criticise my posts, and I am sure that if anyone thinks I am out of line, we will both know very shortly.
] I think we have both made our feelings clear, and perhaps we understand things a little better. Now that you know where all the other Pemberley Boards are, please feel free to use them. You are intelligent and articulate, and have well-developed research skills. There are other people in Pemberley who could benefit from your wisdom. There are real beginners out there, ones who do not know the first thing about the Regency, the Net, Colin Firth , or anything. The Regency Board would love to know what you do know, where you are your information. Perhaps, if you wish to continue the "Slavery" topic, you could start it again, with reference to what you have found out about those ladies with black Pages as gifts. WE would love to read about them ourselves, whether it is in a legitimate academic source, or the trashiest novel you have ever read!
] By the way, I don't hold grudges, I don't have time. I'm not "Queen " of this board, either. I'm the Host, which means I look after it. I don't feel obliged to do anyone's research for them, but often use other poster's questions as a starting point in making it a better place to be. You didn't send me on any wild goose-chases that I didn't want to go on. My point was that you were asking searching questions and it was not at all clear why you were doing so.
] Here's to a new start, Elissa. Come and read Jane Eyre with us, or contribute to the Ramble thread about other Regency writers. Say hello to a newbie, or tellus what movie we should view together next.
