    Default What is wrong with this forum

    I joined this forum about 7 months when I was long term sick. I thought "Wow" mature guys (and ladies) helping each other to sort out problems with their cars.
    There was a general chat section to which sensible conversations were being held. I, greatly enjoyed entering into the "spirit" of the forum.

    Now, I find that everyone is arguing at each other over a variety of subjects. I now question whether I want to remain a member. I don't need anyone slagging off my profession of the last 18 years. I respect your opinion but speak from knowledge not your perception of what I do for a living.

    So to everyone calm down and lets get on or the forum will go the way of so many childish forums on the net.


    If I am out of order then please delete thread.........

    I must agree there are some extreamly sad people on here, must be the virtically challenged members who tittle tattle over things.

    Agreed.

    But its January/February !!

    Everyone is fed up, no money, bored, cold and waiting for summer.

    We all argue less in Summer cos were all to knackered after polishing, waxing, meeting up, buying and selling bits off each other, chatting in the sunshine, bombing off to fun places....

    Like I say... its January/February syndrome.... it'll pass

    I had the same thoughts as John35. this has been a very good frendly/family type of site. But as the membership has increased the site seems to have lost it,s welcoming sort of feel. I don,t know if that is what happens to all forum... or maybe there are people who want to spoil it for others. We try and help each other and offer assistance and help. Let,s hope we can keep it this way.

    I feel the same as John TBH.
    Stopped some lad in a Q7 doing 55 in a 30 today. He went off big style, saying I was jealous of his motor, which turned out to belong to a lease company.
    Why are people subjected to petty squabling. For example, the lad mentioned above who talked his way into getting 3 points.
    We are human, and yes - WE DO HAVE TO EAT! Don't stare at me for eating a packet of crisps, or drinking water in the plod car!
