Ribnet has been excellent for me but I do sit in the corner 'lurking' as I'm often afraid to ask a question in case I get shot down.

If you need to ask a question then ask it !! As they say, there are never stupid questions, only stupid answers,

on all forums there are clever people giving good advice to those of us that may lack a little experience within the field the question is regarding.

Then there are the people who think they are clever that answer a question/post in such a manner to make themselves look good, that's fair enough also, if you know it you know it,

Then there are the sarcastic replies that try to belittle people, everyone knows who they are, personally I have a very thick skin, and usually my answer to a sarcastic or un helpful reply is "ARSE"

Sorry for rambling, had a bad day !!

Mmmmm that's a different slant on it, and you may be closer to the truth, I always try to give them the benefit of the doubt

I actually reckon that there's very little of the above, unless the question contains similar or there's 'history' between the posters.

Believe me, this place is warm and fluffy compared to many forums. I use a skiing forum which scares me sometimes.

Mollers, I find rib.net ok also, was just a generic answer to the issues that have been raised, it happens on every forum I am a member on. And no it's not me !!

Before you start !! Lol

In a thread dedicated to the awful behaviour of the Mods, it's good to note that we're not too far outside the median!

Bit of advice: If I can get over mollers and "get the joke", so can you. Deal with it!

So just because one or two members are rude and use bullying behaviour it makes it ok for "mods" to act the same way then, unbelievable.

Easy Moody.Chris, I'm working here - making my point. Sometimes it takes me a while. MattH needs to "deal", get over his demons and move on, you need to "relax" and see what happens next on RIBnet - IMHO, naturally.

And FYI, only Victor Meldrew couldn't believe it - For me, every day is a revelation as regards what I'm going to discover I believe. Me giving Mollers a wee bit of a hearing? Oddly believable, apparently

No ... but .. Ive just seen this thread .... and read your first post ... and skipped twelve pages .. or so .. of no doubt general forum mince and went straight to the last page and read the above ^^ and whilst you have always come across as a thoroughly reasonable chap to me .. might I suggest, the fact that this thread 'exists' suggests highly compliant management on here , and further , some structured thinking amongst those who could just delete posts at a whim. I know many forums where disagreement just gets cut and binned ... at least here your voice is getting listened to .. mind you ... ive been fighting against that benevolent dictatorship for a while

Cheers fella - I reckon it will come good, but with cyclical periods of boll@cks, for that was ever the way. Don't listen to that Bigwuzz lad - he's under the affluence of incohol, a notorious lag determined to undermine the powers that be.... Hey! That used to be me
