    I've decided the time has come for me to leave the forum. I have enjoyed the comradeship, the sharing of information, the witty comments of others and above all, the respect that we have all shown to one another.

    I can see a bit of a sh!t fight emerging over the deletion of Kev's Merry Christmas thread and I would rather pull the pin now and walk away with positive thoughts than bitterness due to my view on the issue.

    I'm gone.

    Jeff

    I guess I have to take that on the chin.

    I assume of course that I must take most of the responsibility for his leaving.
    Having felt we had became personal friends, though far apart,
    and have never met; I am really saddened.
    Hopefully Jeff will at least read of my regrets.

    Noel, please do not feel that you should take any responsibility for my decision to leave the forum, there is absolutely nothing that you have said that swayed my way of thinking. We are friends, have been for quite a while and still will be.

    I'm leaving the forum because I need to devote my time and thoughts to other things without the distraction of wondering who, why or what has rattled the cage - this time the cage being TBX. I would sooner walk away from it now and who knows, maybe come back at a later date.

    Jeff

    Whats wrong whith saying merry Christmas? I am not religious I love Christmas , great wheather, spending time whith your loved ones , enjoying your holiday, looking forward to next year etc.
    I think the problem Is that the world is full of religious conflict I didn't read anyone bagging out someone else,s religion, just that there is some opposition to saying merry xmas.
    Cmon guys don't leave lets just ignore the s--t that goes on worldwide and concentrate on getting some good fish whorth photographing over the break and some santa jokes (politically correct ones:D)

    Merry xmas and tight lines

    If you do log back on Jeff I hope you reconsider. There is a possibility that the person who complained contributes FA to the forum yet despite that they believe it is their right to ruin it for others. It isn't fair that a regular contributor like yourself has to leave.

    Noel, in another thread you said that we should be ashamed in regards to the current state of affairs as how we bow to the minority. We shouldn't be ashamed as there is nothing we can do about it. The ones that should be ashamed are the gutless wonders that have allowed it...politicians etc.
    Cheers
    Team Bender
    Wishing everyone a merry Christmas and yeah...I am having my holidays in late January cos they are a different thing!

    So am I Howard but I do not attempt to convert everyone else to my opinions. I love Christmas and believe in the very reason for its existence. Something else that some are trying to eliminate. It makes me boil to see things like Christmas carols stopped in schools, wishing people happy holiday, and the list goes on. I am really mad that Kev's thread was deleted. Of course, with a name like mine, I was like others, born in the middle of Christmas.
    I still believe we have become a gutless lot who are afraid to have an opinion. I now think that probably includes the management of this site.
    I will be joining Jeff.

    Im staying to stand up for what I believe, i find myself being bullied by all manner of groups these days. All very aggressive and vocal for their cause. The easiest way to deal with them is agree with them , and just give in. Disagreeing means you will cop lots of abuse. None of us like that,so we back off. They are fully aware of that. Aggressive Assertive. I have said my piece. I will not be engaging with them. Ignoring after that is the best way. Im very Disappointed with admin!!!!! A lot of us have been trying to keep this site alive. I enjoy the company and friendship here. Now YOU ( ADMIN ) are destroying it. Is that what you want ? Howard.

    If you are foolish enough to believe I am trying to 'DESTROY' it; there's no hope.

    After getting over the initial shock; your apology is most gratefully accepted 'Mate' Howard. I have made some personal friends and enjoyed the banter here over several years now. I tried hard to resurrect interest when it waned as did others, and to a degree, we succeeded. Your last post (as in most your recent writing, not your departing piece of music) absolutely delighted me after the previous one. I apologise to you for misinterpreting. Should have known better. Thank you for the speedy sorting out. N
