Hi Steve (Harry),
It's my opinion that the difference between defaming someone's character and questioning their behaviour has been rather blurred to put it mildly, both here and elsewhere. And I must say I firmly believe that anyone wth a genuine grieveance should be heard without let or hindrance, without fear of censure or the threat of banishment. That is the way of the British, freedom of speech, fairplay and a limited government over all, and we gave it to the rest of the free world. That is what I believe in. All things must be accountable, but to accept the way of some of the people who have vented their spleens by disabusing the forum and some of it's members not only here, but elswhere is going down a rocky path that will lead to a further erosion of this forum's friendly and knowledable atmosphere and it's standing amongst others. I don't want to see that happen, as I know neither do you or the vast majority of the membership here.
Thanks for you're input, it was fair and I agree with most of it concerning this matter.
