In fairness to Martini, Martin "friended" everyone on RIBnet. I got one too. It seemed a little petty to "unfriend" him when he was down. I was going to wait a few months and then do the dirty...

I think you've missed the thrust of Poly's point here A-H. The post that we were addressing was the one where Martini as much as said that RIBnet Admin are protecting Trade Members from adverse comment on the forum and giving them license to "rip off members".

My reply was a rebuttal of this - I've seen no evidence of any such thing. I put a LOT of work in here to help the forum run smoothly. Protecting the users and the forum itself is my foremost concern and I make every effort to be fair to all parties involved.

I'm a bit p1ssed off, TBH

Don't take it heart Willk. Where money is involved logic, reason and friendship often end up taking second place.

Don't take it too seriously, it was just a bit of gentle ribbing, the winter type
