Re: Can I just say

It's generally down to the clientele - I don't think those charming folk who sneer at 'Tea and biscuits' fora would fit in here. I don't think age has much to do with it - there are plenty of geriatric delinquents on a well known over-50s forum associated with Britain's best selling monthly magazine

The bonus here is that the Boss actually cares about what happens and, being an individual, can lay down his own guidelines and stick to them.

Long may it continue and long may we all remember our manners. If you disagree with an opinion there's nowt wrong with putting an alternative view - politely and respectfully. If the conversation goes downhill, then walking away from it isn't a bad plan of action. And if there's somebody who really gets up your nose - press the ignore button and you'll never have to read their nonsense again ...... Oh! Where did everybody go?

Does that mean I can't break them then?

Sheesh - this place isn't going to be any fun...

Re: Can I just say

I also agree that it is a lovely friendly place to be but I also have always found Dogsey to be friendly as well!

I always say - it's nice to be nice - and find that everyone here is extremely friendly and welcoming.

Well done to Azz for his hard work in putting the board on.

Re: Can I just say

I say well done to Azz to

I have joined other sites and then only stayed a little while as I have felt totally out of place but must say I feel at home here........

It must be the the lovely welcome mat placed at the front door when I joined

I agree, plus this is still a relatively small and select band of people, being a lifelong cynic I expect that to change as we grow bigger but let us hope we stay civilised for as long as possible. BTW the LHM does a good job on here and Dogsey.

Re: Can I just say

I agree, I'm on a couple of other forums and theres quite a few undertones in some of the posts. Dont know why people just dont leave if they have a problem, why spoil it for everyone else. Everyone seems lovely on here

Re: Can I just say

I hope we all continue to be allowed to enjoy this wonderful site, we don't need bickering and arguments. As it is now, we all appear to respect each other, have fun and a laugh, discuss some serious topics if we wish and are allowed to make suggestions as to what we would like to see on here.

Azz has put a lot of thought into it has given us this great forum and come up with something that little bit different. I say "well done, Azz" we'll try not to let you down!
