Your posts make me think that you see this forum as comprising of 'them and us' (or, today, 'them and me'), and it isn't meant to be like that. I sometimes feel like a rank outsider too and no doubt others do at times but this forum is for all of us.

We criticise eachother's posts, floo. Everyone does it, it's the same on every forum that I have ever posted on.

Although I myself may have been guilty of it in the past, I don't like argumentum ad hominem, attacks . it is much better if one attacks the views of a person, not his or her personality.
According to one study, the average adult has a shorter attention span (eight seconds) than a goldfish (nine seconds).
This is not surprising in today's wired , or wified world.

And with that I agree, although sometimes it isn't easy to turn the other cheek! :oops:

Of course it is, bearing (or baring) in mind that we have four of them... :mrgreen:

Dud: I felt a hand on my cheek.
Pete: Which cheek was that, Dud?
[Long pause]
Dud: Left upper, Pete.
Milligan nodded. What was the use? After all, if Albert Einstein stood for a thousand years in front of fifty monkeys explaining the theory of relativity, at the end, they'd still be just monkeys.
