Glad my written English was sufficient for you to understand Jean 😄

And your countrymen are the worst offenders.


It takes real skill to turn a large motorhome forum into a sick joke. Still, as long as they are happy eh?

Come off it Jim, your detracting from my initial question.

Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.

There would probably be a large degree of support that the decline of, what used to be, the largeST motorhome forum, required an owner who fiddled extensively, but apparently kept no records of what he had done.

Then all it took was to sell it to an impersonal company that collects forums solely for the number of subscribers recorded so that advertising revenue can be maximised.

Introduce delay after delay and a failure to deliver upgrades that were repeatedly promised, but rarely delivered.

All of those sort of problems coincided with an exponential growth in free FaceBook groups, attracting members in their thousands and the successful growth of an alternative forum that started after a fall out between the previous owner of this site and the very successful owner of the Fun side - he has maintained interest through careful growth coupled with the maintenance of standards that was abandoned on here when Moderators were removed "at a stroke" on the whim of the flawed previous owner.

None of those things should be ignored, this forum is a shadow of its previous self but still attracts new members who fail to be able to register - a comment repeated often.

I know this is Ray, but felt it important to divert criticism however implied, away from the loyal members that remain with this forum.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Ray.
More like sh1t stirring again. It’s all they have left.

I can’t understand how the lurkers only appear to groan, they’ve won their beloved Brexit you’d think they’d be happy........... oh yeah I forgot it’s turned out a mess.

Have you also noticed they hate this place so much but can’t resist a wee look, sad or what, only resorting to disruptive interventions.

I just think it would be good if we could respond to a post as it is, without dragging into it all the ire that has obviously built up in some against particular posters for whatever reason.

If you think they're trolling just don't give them the satisfaction of responding. And allow others to take what they will from the post.

I guess that if old 7 and Barry didn't attack people there'd be no need for an answer.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

But there was nothing to attack in that post Alan - that's my point. There's no need to carry all that baggage. No wonder some are so grumpy on here.
