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

Hmm... Is this the same bunch that arrived in Barmouth yesterday (on a trailer...) and went off into some of the worst sea conditions I've seen in quite a while?

Initially I thought it was just a bunch of idiots - but it's even worse if a group of people from the emergency services launch into ridiculous weather, where if they needed help (which given the conditions, wasn't unlikely), would put the lives of others at risk if they had to rescue them. The fact that they made it would appear to be more luck than judgement - and on the basis that they were already trailering sections - it seems like stupidity to me.

(For info, that 3 hour trip takes less than 25 minutes on an 'average' day).
