I don't want to be seen to be dragging this thread on and I do believe it's probably run it's course, in terms of sensible posts. However, Hollie Hock, I fully understand where you are coming from regarding flame bait and, for what it's worth, I think you are right. I suspect many more think you are right too but will keep quiet for the sake of peace and quiet. Respect to you for not toeing the line and for voicing your opinion.

I just read your post on the Forkers thread and it seems all may not be as it first appeared. I still hold firm to the my opinion of malicious PMers but if,as you say, you have not sent one, clearly this does not apply to you and I sincerely apologise.

Someone is out to cause trouble. He/She needs to GROW UP!

Sending malicious PM's is childish, sneaky and cowardly. Why some people think it's an acceptable way to behave is beyond me! The best way to deal with it, if you receive one, is to name and shame the sender, as per Verdun.

Well done Verd.

People who send malicious PM's ought to be ashamed of themselves. If they haven't the balls to post in public then they ought not to post at all. You should name and shame them punkdoc and expose the blighters for what they are!

So, what is the message?

I think there is a certain arrogance to this thread. I don't know how many members there are, of this forum, but it must run into hundreds.  Who is to decide what subject matter is acceptable or not? The few, who believe they have the intellect to decide what others say or think? I think not.

There will always be contentious threads on any forum as well as some ridiculous or stupid ones. The trick is to just ignore what doesn't interest you. 

When someone launches a thread they are inviting reply's. You can't expect everyone to share your view and some people will have strenuous opposing views. However, I do believe that, recently, a few threads have been started with the sole purpose of creating unrest between the forum members. I also believe that this thread is an example of that.

I am very sorry to hear of your son in law's condition David but, one man's silly, childish, rubbish is another man's banter/humour/passionate belief.

We should all take time to consider the plight of others. However, people can't spend their entire time censoring their thoughts or posts in case they may be read by someone less fortunate than themselves. Lots of people, myself included, have posted childish rubbish but I very much doubt that anyone would knowingly cause offence to your son in law or his little girl.
