john I honestly don't think you did email rob ,
Genghis , I don't like politics but the thatcher thing was never ending , but being respectful to others I never made any comment out of line. Each person has different tastes in music , activities or culture, and of course you have to respect peoples points of view ,if something offends people to a point that everybody complains then the person should stop posting, which if I had known I would have done .
I have to say there were good things on there of places that I didn't even know existed , even though I have lived here a long time. It wasn't just the weather ,football and animals. Have to take their defence for that.

In all fairness, Genghis, you do have form.

The Thatcher thing was interesting. I actually thought it worked out OK in the end, although it was a subject that was clearly going to get some polarised views and overheated comments. The fact that Rob or anyone else administrating that group didn't step in and throw their weight around was a positive IMO.

The internet and social media are no different from any other aspect of life. We should all be able to accept other peoples views and tolerate their interest in something of little relevance to us but when those views are bigoted or personally offensive to others in the group or when someone goes on and on about the same thing, people are going to complain.

What I don't like about these internet groups is when people start using PMs and emails (and the phone) to complain about other members instead of just voicing their objections publicly. To me that is cowardly.

Don't disagree. Except that in any group/forum associated with the PO it seems that to do so is to commit an unpardonable act. Unless you are one of the favoured few. Which takes us back neatly to why this thread started in the first place!

I just went back to the original post. It seems that the original postings and thread have been deleted.

I just don't understand why they have so many problems down there.

Facebook is taking people away from forums. Us and A-D should be encouraging intelligent discussion ?

In an idle moment, some might say desperation, I looked at the web page. Yet again somebody has flooded their forum with rubbish posts. Whoever they have upset seems to have changed modus operandi. This time it's not kitchen units!

I guess by the time anybody reads this they will have mounted yet another clear up operation. If I were running their forum I'd be asking a few searching questions and maybe upgrading my security. These regular attacks can't be an accident.

I can only assume that the perpetrator got up early and read this thread! The admin have scrubbed the first lot but now there's a kitchen link instead. Probably like some exotic radioactive compound it will have a very short half life!

Half-life (t½) is the amount of time required for a quantity to fall to half its value as measured at the beginning of the time period.

I see stark relations to this thread.....

Yawn Yawn ! Genghis ! Obviously you never did physics at school did you...? hehehehe :lol:

I thought a half-life was what someone who spends a lot of time creating pseudonyms and causing trouble of forums had. :lol:

More bizarre happenings over there ........

It just seems odd (but not unexpected) that what is effectively an extension of a public forum should be set up as a closed group on FB where you have to go onto the forum first for the FB link! :lol:

Then you have to join the group to access anything. :lol: :lol:

More of the same when you get there I suspect.

Seems they've found another Walter Mitty over the other side.

He claims to have been a world famous cyclist who competed in the olympics. He didn't.
