wilkie, believe me, as a bystander,I've seen threads 'going wrong' many times and thought, blinkin' 'eck! - this is getting hot, then over the top it goes and folks get upset, jump out of their prams, insult others or the moderators, leave the Forum in anger, and probably regret it later when it's too late. Mods. experience over the years means they often step in a little early perhaps, but that's ok- very many times the thread is about exhausted anyway. We all know the rules; no expletives (or **** words), advertising, racism, political or religious dissent, nor insults. Easy!
Oh, and wilkie, please don't take your hack rear-end home and pout. Too late, I'm already visualising it! Arrggghhh!
