A nicer place!

It doesn't have to be that way it's an excuse that is used for bad behaviour. It shouldn't be acceptable.

FWIW if posters in general are not happy to play by the rules then go elsewhere. Boards and life need modding.

And please allow me to say "Amen"--that is Boards and life need modding. The whole point is rules in both life and Boards need to include a recourse process. An effective solution could be in some transparency where events are simply logged. Maybe other members can think of other alternatives.

As for defending a specific person here as suggested by David in the thread above, in this particular case, "no" I am not defending him, and will not do so.

Have a wonderful weekend. Regards.

There isn't a forum I have been involved in - Porsche, F1, binoculars etc. etc. that doesn't descend into chaos from time-to-time, usually due to just a few folks that have personal agenda's or conflicts of interest - like selling of the products in question.

That, I think, is a big problem here.
I was not referring to rudeness as such, but being talked down to in a patronising manner, which after a while becomes tiresome and insulting.
