His biggest drawback is having an IQ like the north face of the Eiger. It just puts sensible people off tackling him. I get that.

I still wouldn't let him drive my RIB though...
oh yes you do

No, it isn't. JK made that very clear and some people need to wake up to the reality that it isn't the case. We're RIBnet members who have been asked to keep the forum running smoothly on a day to day basis. Shame on anyone who thinks we are automatia who "do the needful"

I personally feel the need to speak my mind more openly from now on. I've been holding my tongue...

I've never understood why people take offence at multiple quotes. When you're replying to several points in a post it seems like good sense to me

A bit like the argumentative bloke down the pub who always has an opinion on something and always has to have the last word.
I like to think of it as a bit like someone who is prepared to take the time to check his facts and marshal a reasonable argument.

Mostly yes. But that doesn't stop the mods from taking a full part in the discussions. When Poly points out that there may be a flaw in someone's argument he is absolutely not doing that as a mod. That's just him.

I'm on the FB group too but think that ribnet is still a very useful site and won't be leaving it in preference to FB.
As I've said before, the internet is a big place and there's room for everyone. It's great when people find RIBnet useful and enjoy being part of it, but I don't take it personally if people want to play elsewhere as well. I'm sure there will always be common ground somewhere.

Well how about we try some new mods to lighten the burden on the current ones? I suspect there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes that we don't appreciate so if it is a burden surely it should be shared across the community??
