Like spuds, I've been here for years. And it is the best.
I've visited one or two others - and keep returning here. The flaming and language, not that I am averse to the odd expletive as the occasion arises, that I find these more amateur forums a pain in the proverbial and just makes me never go back.
We seem to have a 'sensible' load of members (usually) who can impose self-discipline and keep within the rules.
Add to that good moderation - care of FE and his special 'silver deleting mouse - and we can rest reasonably assured of a sensible forum. One that is a shining light to those others.
p.s. FE... you know my real name and cheques can be made payable to me ;-)))
If everyone agreed on everything posted, it would be a very tedious forum indeed. In fact there would be little point in it's existence at all. People will always have varying opinions, but how the debates are conducted is the key to a successful and interesting forum. Nothing will ever get actioned from the majority of all the opinion generated within this forum, so why a few people get so heated over disagreements here, is beyond me. I enjoy reading many of the posts here, and attempting to contribute to one or two. Long may it continue.
