It may be, having been given some 'advice' himself in this thread that he now appreciates that he may have reacted - to quote Wilk - before the 10 seconds were up.
How about cutting the guy some slack and deleting the thread?
We live and learn. It's an open forum so I bear no ill feeling towards the decision. At the end of the day it makes no difference if I'm a trade member or standard member we all should get the same treatment. I'm sure had this issue been raised by a higher standing/serving member the decision would remain.
In this instance it was a personal thread rather than trade, I am very short of patience, I do react to things personally when I should have given a "business" response based on it being on the back of the "business" name. I don't think I've done anything wrong but clearly it could have been done differently. I guess I was just disappointed to see such a "community" fail to support such an event. I accept I could have put more detail up to assist but I just did not have the time!
As I said, discussion closed. Trouble is it keeps rearing it head bringing it back to the top. It's an open forum so that's the way it is. I'd rather the focus go towards the actual event or similar events currently going on
