Mate we have all copped it when we joined the forum. It is just part of the dynamics of group forming. Those dynamics tend tend to get a wee bit agressive at times in a public forum. It's what it is.
Hey Old Poppy, just because it is, does not make it right.
That's why moderators need to reign it in, and if need, ban the repeat offenders IF they want to grow the user base. It seems on here that is not what iseek is wanting to achieve, and so the moderators let it happen.
I appreciate your 'voice or reason' and calmer tone response. Seems there are some on here like that, but as with most 'groups' a few ruin for all the others.
