Quantity and Quality.

"WELL DONE US"

Ahum . . . I "really" don't normally notice things like this !!

BUT, last night we passed the 21,000 mark, so that's 1,000 (quality) posts in only 22 days!

Without wishing to cast aspersions are some of the people in the Downing Plaza thread for real? I'm slightly suspicous about their origin.

Apologies if I'm way wide of the mark, a couple of the technical bits of discussion have been genuinely interesting.

Howay, NH there is no way they are real. Have you seen this Jim Dean 007 user now registered just to insult Chatton? I think someone is winding us up. I read the whole thread and noted that you sent personal messages to people but how would that disprove that it's just one person with multiple accounts? If it's not just one person it's a couple in collusion. Have some of the SSC higher ups got IP address tracking facilities?

I am using IP addresses and it is being dealt with.

I'll be honest, it is tempting to deal with it all quickly and easily, but you have to give posters a chance.

There is a line that they will not be allowed to go beyond, but you have to give people a fair chance.

OK, if they abuse that chance, then . . .

As annoying as everything is, NH is taking the right approach IMHO.

Thanks Anger, that was indeed my preferred course of action.

However, it has gone on too long, and if you look at the Downing Plaza thread, you will see things have changed.

ALL the off-topic and nit-picking and semi-confrontational posts have gone.

Let's hope we can now ALL move on to discuss what we should be discussing.

Thanks Anger, I didn't want to have to do that, I didn't want to intervene at all, but there comes a point when I just had to. I had to take out a few of our regular posters posts (including mine!) where we had 'got involved' as well (as it would have looked strange with those posts left there) but it does look a lot 'cleaner' now!

This whole thing has been very weird!

(Why couldn't it have happened a few weeks ago!!!!)

As it has been said in the pm I sent you NH, I fully back you and if I was the mod I would of came down like a ton of bricks a long time ago, fortunatly you are someone who gives people more of a fairer chance.

Thanks Chris!

Let's hope the new posters respect the action taken, and (if they continue to post) that they make the strong and useful contribution that their very earliest posts seemed to indicate that they might.

We can only 'wait and see'.

I agree with Chris, you took the right approach NH. It's a shame your earlier polite warning was ignored. Good work

We've all done it! Especially when people are obviously trying to wind you up. Still, onwards and upwards.
