Please read below for the reason...

  • Don’t spam us. It’s very annoying, very obvious and generally just winds people up rather than making them your friends.
  • Don’t use this forum for flogging your wares. Quite apart from the fact that it usually turns people off rather than on, we have a team of
    lovely advertising salespeople who are relying on your business to keep their Smeg fridges well stocked with Veuve Clicquot. Give them a call
    on 020 8267 5377 or e-mail ads.C&SC@haymarket.com or use the contact forms on this site.

Another recipe that works for me is SPAM with eggs.

Oh good, now we have petrolhead posting blank replies as well as GBT/Swordfish. Hope he is not thinking of doing what they do; come back later to edit in some 'witty' (oh yes) comment that then appears to predate the thread.

Oh well, it probably amuses them, and before long markofesteem will be along in defence of GBt/Swordfish then we will have a full house.

Bye,

C.M.

Hey Chris, sorry to hear you are leaving, but what exactly did I do to upset you? I think you will find that if you stop insulting everyone, there is enough room for all of us on here. It is my opinion that you started it all off with nasty comments about GBt/swordfish, (yes they are both Gavin, but so what?), and your comments about petrolhead's Audi was clearly designed to get his back up (I thought so at the time), you could have said the same thing in a witty, light hearted manner! Some of your language also leaves a lot to be desired. Chris Martin was a huge improvement on greasemonkey, but leopards and spots comes to mind!

Take a chill pill mate, I for one don't have issues about you that leave me sleepless and Gavin and petrolhead are clearly sound blokes...leave it be!

I accept in adavance that you probably think I'm a w@n@er, ...LOL

Ok, I think you have shot your load now, it's getting boring and repetitive.

No need to reply, we get the idea.

For heaven's sake people, please calm down and be nice to each other. This is a small community thus far, but with a range of very dedicated (for which we are grateful), diverse and fascinating posters. If those posters start to turn it into a battleground, however, it will stop other people joining the community and probably makes us question whether it is worth providing the platform.

We all have huge amounts to learn from each other, but I suspect that we are not going to learn any new swear-words or put-downs from these slanging matches.

Be excellent to each other.

Thanks

Sorry James, you're right. While it may have been a bit of fun for us, it would look a bit off for anyone just passing through. I reckon we've worn it out for now anyway, so if it's ok with petrolhead, maybe we can call a truce, kiss and make up, and get back to the nuts and bolts of the car threads. Whaddya say PH?

And if James thinks it best to knock this thread on the head, nobody will miss it, it started as spam anyway.
