I agree Paul. This is a circular argument.
If there is no rule then so be it .New members can come on without intro.
Its up to the Admin at the end of the day.
I only see more arguments and may be a loss of members.
lets get on to questions/answers about Motorhomes. up!

When running my business I told staff in no uncertain terms that any indication of conflict must never be responded to by email as emails are often misinterpreted, people are much braver with comments they would not make face to face and peoples tongue in cheek comments get confused with insult.  
Like the comment 'shut up', I took it as a joke and responded accordingly.
So, stay cool everyone :-)

John...You're too positive. Sit down, have a drink and shut up !


That's sorted those two out. Live and let live I say........but not do! 

 Now the rest of the Forum!

My original response to Paul included the words, sit down and have a drink'. The message was a tongue in cheek 'good humoured' response. In the same posting I wrote to another 'poster' that he was 'too positive' and that he should do the same. Again this was all 'good humoured'...tongue in cheek. He responded to this suggestion with a positive reply.


I also 'took the micky' out of myself !!!!
 
As for you Frank. Shame on you


On reflection I would also add if Paul was in any way offended by the response I gave it was by far the last thing that I intended. At the time I was having a drink and was simply feeling good towards my fellow man.  I apologise if I gave offence.

But in your other post Ian, you accuse him of attacking people who responded to his post, which to my mind he did not do.

For what pray?
This thread has gone off topic, Paul's original post was about members leaping in with post number one, complaining about their van and then never being heard of again. He was trying to encourage new members to join in more, or that's the the way I read it. The intro part was not really the full gist of his post, although it has been turned that way.

As this has now definitely gone off topic and those who had an opinion on the original post have had their say, I will lock this.
