Why is Manos banned?

See the 'Just4once' comment on another thread.......

What is going on?

All the lively guys seem to have been thrown out?

Manos has not been banned. Nor has anyone else.

After his recent spate of posting incorrect and dangerous advice, followed by abusing people who pointed out that he was wrong, I temporarily suspended his ability to post messages to the forums.

We exchanged emails and Manos knows exactly what action I have taken and why. His plaintive cry of "I've been banned and I don't know why" is remarkably similar to our other serial fantasist Flanker!

Manos did say that he was going away for a few weeks and wouldn't have time to post to RIBnet anyway. I have suggested that if he is still interested that he should email me when he gets back.

Not quite the same. It's like being allowed into the pub and even allowed to buy a drink. You're just not allowed to talk to anybody!

BTW Manos was very close to pipping me to the position of top poster. He managed 1266 posts in about 10 months!

Keith (opps there goes another one) Hart

PS

Before anyone else says it - I know it's QUALITY that counts not quantity!

Flanker and Manos advise JK on Boating advice

Well I never thought I would be saying This but Bring back Manos and Flanker,as they are both a brill laugh.

And as I have met them both can say they are just Boatmad but brill fun,Wrong about everything but who cares cos if you base your decisions totaly on those that you think are always right then your Totaly doomed anyway.As whilst we all have good intentions we may be wrong on the advice we give,as we are not boat builders ,designers,or engine developers.

So mistakes can be made.

Come back Flanker and Manos as Flanker and Manos have learnt a load of stuff now as they have done more in fast boats/ribs than JK has done this yr. ?
