Sadly its a hobby of many, but sarcastic comments, rudeness or impolite comment is just not a forum is about, it's all about playing nicely, assisting fellow Ribsters with help and support, but so many negative comments come out of this forum can you blame people for moving away, or just not taking much notice, great shame as it had such a good making, but the truth is in the pudding??

I've never noticed this forum to be particularly hostile or even excessively pi$$-takey, a bit 'cliquey' in places but then all enthusiast forums are. We all know the subjects that tend to illicit certain replies, if that offends then just avoid them.

If anyone wants to stop posting or even be deleted then surely you would just PM a mod?

If alternatively an 'I'm off!' topic is started you can bet there is a 'toys out of pram' reason behind it as mentioned.

How do I close my Ribnet account

It's obvious ribnet has a good share of self appointed jumped up individuals, but it is a well used useful site with some great people but as in life we must judge what's to be taken to heart, it's not family.



Sorry to see him go on such a matter ( especially after a probation period)

RIBnet is like the Foreign Legion. You can't leave, but you can go AWOL!

As long as everyone avoids discussing bleed'n Seariders, Land Rovers, lifejackets, and power at prop vs power at head, we'll all get along just fine.

You've only been a member for a couple of years, and seem to have been pretty happy here for most of that time.

You clearly believe that there have been major changes recently, and whilst some people share your view, many don't. These things tend to be cyclic and there have been a number of occasions over the years where groups of people have decided that RIBnet doesn't suit them. Life goes on.

I quite like the anonymity of Ribnet. It keeps Ribbing and pictures of people's dinners separate. I like a page which concentrates on one passion. Facebook is great too but this is fine for sharing info about bits n bobs.
