I totally agree with all comments so far. I find that I visit this forum less and less due to the fact that some peoples replys', both in public and trade were nothing short of rude, to the extent I couldnt stay silent and had to say somthing to said persons.
If you have something constructive and helpful then by all means post, but if it is to try and look high and mighty and belittle newcomers to the site then dont say anything at all.
Its not about the amount of posts per member but the quality of the discussions and topics raised.
I hope the new moderators will keep the the posts on topic and not at a tangent as has been in the past.
I know there have been some major changes recently but this forum is widely respected in the industry and im sure it will evolve into a new and better site.
