Obelixx - I am nonplussed by Pansy's cooling off period. But, given the fact that, after the changes to the board, the team has made strenuous efforts to deal with many problems, including that of the visually impaired, I have, thus far, given them the benefit of the doubt, and hope that the matter can be resolved sooner rather than later, and in an amicable way.
Time was, on the old Beeb board, when problems were ignored or there was total over-reaction. I think the moderation here on GW is less heavy-handed. I hope I am proved right. But your wise words may pour a little oil on troubled waters (I hope).
I think that those in charge have had some very difficult messages to deal with (if I read between the lines of some of the posts from the likes of Daniel) and I suspect that the current problem may be an over-reaction to that. Let's hope it is all sorted and that gracious apologies all round will bring about harmony on what is, overall, a lovely forum for gardeners.
