Free advice, Ben -- lay off the opium.

I get a static picture of Boris Johnson's toupée lying on a desert road. What's the connection with the thread topic?

Perhaps you meant the following?

Ben likes to whinge about the traffic. It never occurs to him to actually contribute to it.

That would involve having to write something meaningful.

sadly watching the demise of a once fine an thriving community.........and confirming that clearly it's demise is not the result of my contributions

Sadly you seem unable to accept that it just may be some other reason for posters who have been here for years giving up rather than face the  constant hostility which has become the norm of late

...or perhaps you think that the board is thriving?

I don't think anyone has said that.  But, hey, it's your story.

Ever since I joined GWD, in 2011, the main, and unremitting, source of constant hostility, and indeed constant personal abuse, has been Mr Fantastic, with a very few others -- mostly, but not all, similarly of the Far Right. When I was asked to look after technical aspects of GWD I did, making it clear that I wanted nothing to do with policing. Ended up practically on my own, and only ever banned K-K-Kate, who was stalking Mr & Mrs Ed (and me, to a lesser extent).

Just so you know the facts, Ben. I know you think it's my mission to close it down, but that's just you.

Carry on.

And another thing, Ben: I have attended four (4) Meets since 2011, and every one was a joy.

As far as I know, you haven't been to any, even though you've been a member since 1947. MrF even said, more than once, that he would never attend a Meet. QED.

As you were . . .

I don't know your situation, Ben, but I wish I were close enough to visit some of our august members.
If I were but a tube ride away, that would be terrific.

Speaking of, I'll be in Mokum next September, Wey.  I'm still on my quest for the perfect kroketten.
The ones in Nijmegen were quite tasty.

Mrs YI (codename K) has that information, which is highly classified, obviously. All I can tell you on the interweb is that it's within walking distance of her flat (on the number 1 tram route). We can talk about money when you're actually in the great city.



Valiant, Steadfast, Compassionate. In fact just like the GWD admins.

I believe Ben lives in Lincolnshire, somewhere north of Lincoln.

Lincoln has the second best cathedral in the UK, after Durham. (Both nicked from the Catholics, of course.)



Lincoln would be a great place for a Meet, assuming the natives would behave.
