The forums are really good but the contributors can be such a disappointment

I used to like these forums, the contributors to Motorhome Matters in particular have not only given us practical help but also much amusement and entertainment.

However, with increasing regularity it seems that when I drop in on an interesting topic and find that the first few postings are potentially helpful to the originator and interesting to the rest uf us; then in no time at all - usually when one of a small group of frequent contributors becomes involved - it gets personal, political, rude and downright unpleasant.

It's sad really, because very often you have an interesting point to make, but you entirely forget your manners.

Reference the recent post by Hymer 1942. How insensitive some of those comments were, made by (presumably) civilised human beings. For heaven's sake guys, don't go off thread unless it's of interest to the readers, and if its going to get personal, keep your testosterone for a PM, the rest of us REALLY DON'T WANT TO KNOW.

Lighten up, put your ego to one side and get out in your motorhome.

Hi Vicky. The annoying thing is that individually both Frank and Richard are interesting and really nice people to talk to. They have already been warned re. future conduct and what a shame if they are banned, not only for themselves, but for all of us who enjoy their contributions. Lets hope they see some sense before its to late.

What's a one liner?
The stuff that Howie regularly snorts through a rolled up £50 note.

Suppose you're out of small change now you've got the new van, then, are you Mel?

Yes Vicki, I agree, and plead guilty, and hereby apologise for my lapses.

Brian

I thought all £50.00 notes were forgeries ... I didn't know that actually they were REAL!!! I must've thrown hundreds away!
