I'm sad to see anybody quit, but moderators need to do what they regard needs to be done.
This won't please everybody obviously, but I try to be impartial and keep personalities out of it.

Regards, Graham.

PS - it's 6.45am here and I have little control over what goes on during the night as I need much needed beauty sleep as you can tell from my pic! :lol:

Only blatant personal attacks will be removed as per the charter.
It is difficult to do this while the thread is still in full flow with other inappropriate comments being made by some posters.
Therefore I need to move it temporararily in order to do it.
It will then be returned.
Some moderation is better than no moderation.

Hi Graham,
Put it in the automatic washing machine with two cups of Ariel and see for yourself :lol:

The problem is, you don't know what you're doing. Regardless of my position on Bob Hyatt over some issues, he knows this too, being a moderator off and on for years.

If Steve leaves and Hyatt, I may too!

Of course I'm sure that doesn't matter either....ppphhhttt!

Steve is very good at what he does. So are the others good at
what they do.
Steve will be back today or tomorrow. He has time to cool off and
will be back soon :)
