lets not forget the quality product that has been saved.
Its not gone to China or India like so many manufacturing jobs.
Small suppliers may not have been paid Sadly that is a risk in business. It happened to me 20 years ago with a large manufacturer.
I carried on business with the new owners, remember BL but on a pay for last months order before we deliver this months.

Yep its that attitude that makes me realise that this forum cannot be trusted for its company reports and I wasted my £10.00.

I never saw the original post, but having looked at Northernlad's profile, he's not a subscriber, and he's got 5 posts remaining. That means that his post has been deleted, but more importantly - for me - it means that he signed up simply to make an anonymous and apparently-critical post as a "supplier".

That's not what the forum is for, is it. We've had this lots of times before - it's generally called "trolling" - such as with the venom posted about Desert Detours. I've never seen any reasoned debate by such individuals - they simply sign up, abuse their five free posts, and disappear without trace.

If the Mods have pulled this one, I have absolutely no difficulty with it.

The post yesterday was closed pretty quickly therefore he did not necessarily have time to state his position, if he still can but chooses not to then there is no weight to what he was saying.

Quite.
Sorry I am not sure if that is a yes or no answer to my question.
not sure what the question was? if it was "Is he free to post?" Yes, if he subscribes, because he has used up his 5 "free" posts.

my comment "quite" refers to your last paragraph.

again, I'm not sure what you mean? DTP was apparently pointing out some of the none too good facts of business life. Why is that a comment on the Company Reports on MHF?

Northernlad10 has used up all his 5 free posts - are you looking at somebody else?

I was looking at Northernlad - sorry. Are they two different accounts, or an attempt to carry on after running out?

I suppose that if you only had a single reason for joining, slating Timberland, you may have wasted your money.

If, on the other hand you are interested in Motorhoming you will find it the best tenner you ever spent.

Since you have paid up why not tell us which it is? Alan.

Alan,

I think to be fair that as he joined just under a year ago & has posted 58 times, he's not just joined for one purpose.

Thanks Dougie, Alan.

Not sure what you mean? I have no interest beyond the reply I put on the other post. I will take back the £10.00 comment I have got my monies worth from this forum. Maybe after another 10 years in the hobby I will acquire the rose coloured specs a lot of you guys have been wearing. I repeat I have no agenda I live on the south coast I have a newly acquired Swift from a dealer who I am very happy with and have said so, it has has its problems and they have sorted them.

I was simply trying to put some balance into this situation and point out there is more to it, I apologise if it seemed aggressive.
