Old friends canal services.


Featured Posts

He last posted in March, so not that long ago. Some members do take a break and return later.

I got the impression that he knows several other members in real life - perhaps one of them cn update us.

Indeed.

 

I just thought it curious as the web site for 'old friends' has gone too.

Yes, and your concern is appreciated, thank you.

So, has anyone out there seen him?

Yup, he is absolutely fine.

That' good news. I e-mailed him earlier todayto enquire after his well-being but have, as yet, received no reply.

We had drinks with him and his wife at a pub close to their mooring about a week ago.

 

They are absolutely fine, as Kiwidad has already said.

Thanks for your good wishes, everybody.

 

Yes, I am back - if a single post constitutes being back!

 

We'll see how it goes, although the forum had become somewhat toxic round about the time I stopped posting.  However I'm not seeing any of that now, so fingers crossed.

But it's not a single post now is it?  :)

 

Welcome back and also @Kiwidad

Welcome back Alan. Your experienced comments have been missed. The forum has gone through some abusive periods but has calmed down somewhat. ‘The’ other site that I haven’t visited has helped in some way, in my view.

What has actually happened is the disgraceful and unpleasant posting still happens but it has been ring-fenced inside the "Politics and Current Affairs" board. There are so many breaches of forum rules in there that Team Mod seems to have mostly given up on it.

Being an ex-messdeck habitant, political comments go over my head and like many others, turn my back. Three things weren’t allowed discussion in the mess, Football,politics and religion. (But there always was, but at some point in the proceedings someone would quote ‘the rule’ and the beer fridge would get raided. Calm would be restored.

I try to stay out of that obnoxiuos area of the forum, I'd close it if it where mine.
