^Exactly that's what I think too, I see it more as people hoping that if it happens and William marries her he is truly happy and in love with her something that wasn't there for Charles and Diana

Really? You may not have noticed but we have our resident bully who likes to tell people who don't happen to share her opinions to go spew their 'hate' and 'garbage' elsewhere.
But yeah, globally, this place is pleasant and a good debate platform.

I've seen forums that are really bad, this forum is a pleasant place to be, and I think we're all allowed to have our own opinions, if there were to be for example someone who expresses extreme hate for Kate then I'd say that would be pushing the limit, but thankfully so far we've seen nothing like that here.

I agree with ghost_night and Lady Ann, most people would like to see William marry the girl he loves and 'live happily ever after' which did not happen with his own parents unfortunately. I have yet to see the Queen condone a relationship of her successors, where by the girlfriend is invited to an official event like Kate has, and it doesn't end in marriage. All the Queen's children (grandchildren) who have had their girlfriends attend an official function have ended up marrying the lady/man. I think William will marry Kate eventually.

For the time being.

I've seen other places dragged down. It starts very innocently.

I and others call it like we see it.

Thanks to the tireless work of the Moderators. so I don't think it is nice that you call one of the female moderators (which one, BTW?) a "resident bully". They spend their free time to organize this forum and I, for one, am thankful - especially because they sometimes tell people to spare us their "hate" and
"garbage" (though I don't believe such a word was ever used).

To be fair, I don´t think that Idriel was calling a mod a resident bully. There are other people who seem to spend such a long time on this forum that they could be called residents, I have an amazing number of posts as do others. I didn´t take it as referring to one of our wonderful mods.
Today is THE day the British papers say, after spending a pleasant night with Kate at her parents´ home, so let us see. The parents at least seem to welcome his attentions so there might be some outcome to this.

Usually this place is very well kept. People usually don't argue or ask the need of the moderators but I guess we can bicker. Anyway it's nice to visit and read here of the many topics. One can get a grasp and a foray of the grand scope of all things included Royally. I for one was hoping to find and see a thread about the recent Jan 9 birthday of Kate. I just hope that the visit from William to her parent's house and her vacation to Scotland and her birthday this past Friday went just great. She's now 27. I hope she got many gifts and presents. Happy Birthday to her.

The article is very interesting Although I don't understand why people expected him to propose to Kate on such an occasion and in front of her parents...It's 2009 and the modern couples usually share these moments privately.I'm just saying that the fact that he didn't pop the question the other day doesn't mean anything

Hope it remains that way. Agree with the rest of your post!

Well, maybe, but you should have more confidence in the British Forums moderating team and of the TRF mods and admins as a whole.
We haven't been invaded by anti-Kate spammers (or pro-Kate spammers for that matter) and if either situation arises you can rest assured it will be dealt with appropriately.

Yes, but she spoke of a "resident bully" - I have yet to see a "bully" becoming a resident here and I've seen a lot of members come and go.... The only people here who are allowed "bullying" (if one like to call moderating that) are the mods, I'm afraid.

I wonder if the fact that William used his own car and parked it over night for anyone to see it, on knowing that the paps would be there on Catherine's birthday, wasn't a signal to the world to treat Catherine more serious without burden her with an engagement announcement now when he is about to start a new phase of his training. I mean first they both stay with his parents and now they stayed with her parents: what more do you want? Maybe she would even have stayed at Sandringham for christmas, but the article claimed that she was ill and noone in his right mind would visit a couple of the ages of HM and the DoE when being ill.

No, I can’t say I have noticed. There are people on here who feel strongly about their opinions and yes there are those who don’t like it when others disagree with them but I have yet to come across any bullies. I think the moderators do a wonderful job here, especially considering the large amount of members, each with their own opinions.

To be honest I get the impression that William doesn’t really care what people think about his and Kate’s relationship. I think he stayed there simply because that is what they had planned to do and not as a sort of a ‘yes we’re together, everything is fine’ signal for the media. IMO if he was going to go down that road with them he would of done it long before now. Of course I could be very wrong and this could be their way of saying ‘OK we’re not getting married any time soon but we are in a stable and serious relationship’. Who knows?

I was most definitely not talking about any moderator. I think they do a fine job.
I have sent you a PM to clarify my post. Amelia too.
