Here we go again.

Wonder if Ribnet will ever get back to the friendly site it once was.

There's not a day goes past when somebody doesn't have a go at sombody else.

Targeting a member nearly every time they post is just plain bullying, and gives the newcomers the wrong idea about the site. Manos was bullied off the site a while ago, it was tried with Codders, and I'm glad he stood up to those that felt they had to find fault all the time.

Although I will never accept the bullies, I think a forum like this will attract all sorts, and all users should be grown up enough to accept they have chosen to partake in a public forum.

If anyone wants to disagree, they know where to find me each second Monday of the month and do it face to face.

Nasher.

Well said.

I agree that Ribnet is a hugely useful source of information, and I for one have made several non-cyberspace friends through it.

It's also been hugely helpful to me on technical questions, both rib related and non-rib related, and that would be a shame to loose.

I have a huge respect for your post Nasher - and admire your courage for publicly broadcasting your views.

No he wasn't. He was suspended (for the third time), and it looks like he has chosen not to return.

I think RIBnet is generally a pretty friendly place, as it always has been. With getting on for 3,000 members and well over 100,000 posts there are inevitably going to be clashes from time to time. It happens, but we seem to be able to move on from them pretty well.

As ever, if anyone has any issues with posts on RIBnet please let me know.

John

Good for you Nasher - I have always admired people who stick up for fair play and common decency.

Things do seem to have improved considerably on here lately - apart from the odd lapse now and then!!!

Well said Nasher.

My (short) experience so far of RIB.net has been mainly positive. Some very helpful people here. Unfortunately, as with life in general, there are always exceptions. It won't deter me though. If they have issues and choose to wrap them up in personal attacks that's their problem.

RIBase
I'd just like to point out here that I'm generally offensive to most people most of the time anyway so if anyone thinks I've been rude it's not personal
