Definitely a good laugh, but not a good omen for the site's survival.

In my opinion he should have been jumped on after the first two or three posts. It was very clear very quickly that he was there to sow dissent and for no other reason.

I agree. And yes, it's friendly here!

I had a sensible, friendly, PM from Chillzero saying 'give it time' they are 'finding their feet'.

I'll keep half an eye on what goes on over there and see what happens. I don't plan on being involved in the near future.

Of course, it's fine and dandy here!
Long term, are both forums viable? Won't we run into the old UKskeptics problem of a diminishing core group talking to ourselves?


Off on a tangent, DrS; what happened to Mr Donnis' 'comment' on your article? One day it was there, the next gone with no trace.

No idea, I'm afraid. The upload of the article was an error, anyway - my error - and I've asked for it to be removed.

Ah, that accounts for it.... :idea:

I must admit I can't be bothered to keep flitting from one site to another, so you're stuck with me for the duration (that should get the forum closed down pretty quick...).

I blame Polo.

Tinkerbell, might I draw your attention to Rule 436, Paragraph D, subsection 5 ---- "No flirting".

I thank you.

Was asked to help by one admin....provided loads of info for the main site, but was not made welcome and have recently withdrawn my involvement and association to them. They don't have a clear direction, much experience or a principal philosophy.

I would have (and wanted to) deal with the Forum vomit from the "Bad Piss artists" website person as well - no real appetite for it though.

I wish them well, I really do, but not at my expense. My material will be removed soon from the main site.

I'd give them a chance, Dr B. I happen to know that back in the real world, chillzero is a very pleasant, capable lady and she'll have put a lot of work into this.

Still like it here, though.
