I've met a few reptiles with a hangover....but then I have a hangover most mornings, so it's not surprising really!

Had to answer this tunnel vision comment...

Ever heard of 'private messaging' and/or texting? - I'm not a public kind of guy, so prefer to do it on a one-to-one basis
also, when someone messages me asking for advice, they're prepared to listen, rather than constantly argue the toss, which often happens on the public threads

As a matter of fact, am smack in the middle of getting someone through the process (he's stressing) of a clutch that he's incubating right now (and it's by PM if that's ok with you?)

I'm out

Getting into dangerous territory there, a moderator telling people how they should and shouldn't choose the methods by which they use the forum. :/

Do you think Moderators talking like this helps the matter?

I used to pay for membership but hardly come on now, have a quick browse in the classified etc and maybe sell something but the 'holier than thou' attitude by a lot of members on here is extremely frustrating

Not trying to stir the pot, but it could possibly be a symptom of the reasons for this thread.

I just got here, but perhaps this is the reason that new posts take forever to get moderated? If you're too busy getting into verbal fisticuffs, you're also neglecting new members.
