What about a forum - or even a place for us to report offenders - where we can list or report people that are offensive and the like, and when you recieve a certain number of ticks against you a ban is put in place...just a thought. I am not looking to create more work for mods, just food for thought as it may slow down or stop those that repeat and pursue personal attacks.

With that being said, I do enjoy the forum a great deal and look forward to my visits....but the old saying is that it is not who is not here that matter, it is who is.....would personally rather have a small list of user but quality posters.

Great work mods....simple a thought that may make your jobs somewhat easier as we could forward posts to you that we find offensive for you to review.....but now that I think about it I suppose we can simply do this via PM already.

I thought there was a system like this in place already.
I amsure that the mods keep a close eye on things and anyone deemed offensive for no reason is likely to be ticked off any way.

This sounds like a case of "I'm telling the teacher."

I agree with this. I do hope moodini behaves himself in future.

Too funny.....will do Mr. Lewis, all things aside, may I PM you a question about trade shows...I am looking to push in that direction a little more and am in need of some advice on pricing, marketing, structure, etc

I do trade shows now but not for individual vendors or clients, rather for the show itself

Can we also tick people off for atrocious spelling?

the trouble with things like this is it makes it very easy for cliques to gang up on someone they dont like.

It's the chimp mentality. Alpha males and whatnot and chimp groups ganging up on those weaker. Ask David Attenborough.

It's our inner chimp. If you lay out bowls of crisps and a bowl of peanuts at a party, the peanuts'll go first. The inner chimp you see.
The banana is the most popular fruit in the UK. Inner chimp again.

And PG Tipps is the most popular brand of tea...need I say more.

Gotta go now, there's a bone I need to smash.
