Regretably we have had to ban a user from the forum. Please exercise restraint in postings. We provide this forum as a free service and really do not have the man power resources to provide continuous moderation, we must therefore rely on our users to exercise moderation if we are to continue to operate.

Well done, it will ensure that your companies reputation is not diminished providing that the users do "exercise moderation".

The reason for this message board is to help Sherpa to promote their services and I thank them for the many people that they enable to enjoy a walk without carrying too much on their backs. It is also to enable us to exchange walking information. Whilst this part of the board is for "General chat" I don't see that as a reason for unreasonable comments such as the one that was, in part, reproduced above.

Clearly if individuals don't know where to draw the line or how to moderate their language then they are likely to have problems; they shouldn't expect Sherpa to tell them exactly what is not acceptable.

All responsible, right minded people on here will of course welcome the call for restraint and moderation when making comments.
It is regrettable that someone has been banned from here but this was probably inevitable if the offending post was even more repulsive than the one made at 1.02pm on 31st January in the "Food" thread in "General Chat".
Let's just hope that a sense of decorum prevails from now on.

Thanks I have removed the topic but i cant be doing this every day
You guys are going to have to alert me to these postings whne you spot them

I am glad about this. You don't have to spew poison to make it a lively forum. Debate is good and healthy - starting getting and you lose all focus of debate.

Thanks noj, I'm sure that was the right thing to do. Whilst we are all in favour of free speech, it has been getting a bit unpleasant in here recently - in fact, I for one have voted with my feet and only visit occasionally now, mainly because the forum seemed to have been invaded by potty-mouthed adolescents. So thank you and well done. grin

I couldn't agree more.
I've only visited occasionally in recent months.

I'd like to assist our "new" member freebird in reminding him of the terms of behaviour ..

"You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this BB to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy"


Of his 11 posts 10 are purely
derogatory slights and attacks on one particular forum member and as such this
is a form of harassment and bullying.

Of course I could be totally mistaken but the whiff of NW and the Avuncular One
are oozing out of those eleven posts.
If so, and this gentleman has indeed been deemed inappropriate to the forum, the the moderators should be aware that the poison remains.

In the mean time, I can only paraphrase one of his posts and say that he would be doing the future of this forum a great favour if he was to "go away".

BB x
