Hi Terry,

I must have missed something. Why has Steve & company left?

Best,

I suspect it could be because he got moderated heavily in the thread below and didn't like it.

Steve visits here every day to view the forums and I'm sure he'll start posting again soon. So he hasn't actually "left" as Terry implies.

I'm not sure who the others are that Terry has referred to, but I'm sure he can clarify.

Regards, Graham.

Yes we all miss Steve. Maybe he will post better when he comes
back. :) :) :)
I guess he will start posting soon. He can't stay away long.

As far as the Moderator he has my full support.
So some crybabies will have to be more mature.

He may Moderate this post which would be ok.

Good luck,

Gerold.

You're wrong Graham, he has left, and I've you to thank for it!
Steve will return if elections are held. However, if they're not held soon he may never return!

Steve has been here since the inception of the forum, that is 10 years Graham, and very sad that he has left due to inept moderation!

Dr. Robert Hyatt hasn't posted in days, and may or may not return. I simply don't know?

What I'm certain of is problems within CCC and moderation has become a part of the greater problem, rather than the solution!

A team is as strong as it's weakest link, Graham.....enough said!

No he won't be back anytime soon Gerold, and this thread should be left intact!

I'm sure you would list people with ligitimate reasons to leave as crybabies, rather than sensitive intelligent people, who have been reproached one too many times!
