Surely there is plenty of room in cyberspace, especially for original ideas.

If derived from someone else's idea then acknowledgement at the very least is good form?

I received an email publishing this "The first online network community for RIB users". I emailed them back to say hadn't they heard about RIBnet, and this is what they said ...

"Dear Mr. Beach

Thank you for your email response. You misunderstand. This is not a forum, it's a 'network community', this is the phrase readily used by internet users to describe a network whereby individuals can have their own profile page. RIBnet do what they do very well, this is a feature which no other marine site is doing, it is nothing like RIBnet and is not meant to be.

Thanks
RIB International
"

So, does this mean RIBnet is NOT a "community" but a mere 'forum' - oh how common - JK take note!!

I'll be sticking to what I know, 'community' or not - after all, even RIB International acknowledge we do what we do very well!!

Andy

Surely not?

But that'd mean This is not a forum, it's a 'network community', this is the phrase readily used by internet users to describe a network whereby individuals can have their own profile page. JK has been decieving us all this time

I know, just what I thought!!

To be a bit more objective, on the RIB International site you do have your own galleries and blogs on your 'profile page' but nothing that can't be found in the pages of RIBnet.

Let's stick to what we do best!

If it wasn't so pathetic I might get annoyed by this clueless drivel. What is RIBnet if not a "network community"? Anyway, the internet's a big place and there's plenty of room for everyone.

Shame on you AndyB007 for being so silly as to misunderstand. Foolish boy!

"Not a forum, but a network community."

Wow, do I ever feel common! Only yesterday I was feeling top-shelf, enjoying my pre-owned (not used) inflatable craft (not boat) that I transported (not drove) to the waterfront (not riverbank) with my automobile (not pickup truck). Then this morning I discover that I've spent the last 3 years on this forum (not network community) and my bubble has now been burst!
