You really need to grow up, Martin. Get over yourself with your "better than everyone" attitude...

So sodding what if it's on my server - doesn't mean I'm chained to it... Get a grip.

Seems you just prefer to whinge, and when that is challenged, yo go on the attack in the style of a 13 year old... Whats this shit about pulling the plug? Alll I said is you all comment, but noone tries to find out whats wrong or even if people are aware...

Fine, you're just a user. You "care" enough to go on about it being down, yet you don't actually give a shit enough to do anything about it... Well that just says it, really.

Well there we have your true fucking colours then Gary

Never wrong,always blaming some fucker else.

Theres no need to tell us you were stating a fact,we know as we are not fucking children.This is the irony of your bloody attitude towards us,who have proved ourselves to be liked,useful forum members over past couple of years.

The last time I called you a fair while ago showing an interest in the forum (last time it was down) I was told yes yes everyone keeps ringing me.So I thought I wont in future as that also seemed to piss you off.Well tought fucking shit on you too you.If you put folks in a no-win situation live with the consequences you deserve you ignorant arrogant wanker!

Goodbye

I'm old enough to be severely annoyed with you and Catrgroom and say so.

You appear to be old enough to do nothing but whine and tell tales "look what the bad man did"

I do give a shit but true it's not a much these days as it's all gone a bit shite. I don't like the forum being blamed because you say your not here. Can't 3 people even check things?

Look at your own fucking issues Gary and stop skirting round the so obvious point which is-:in the past when I for one have contacted you its been "yeah im busy dont bother me" (i repeat!)

Then when noone contacts you,it apparently pisses you off!Hard luck pal!

You dont set clear boundaries,what do you expect.

Sit with yer feelings and stop blaming.I for one dont expect to be spoken to like that especially by someone much younger than me.

Youve got more front than a cows got cunt!

Look, I don't expect you all to be my eyes on this.

But you can't expect me to be chained to it either.

Works both ways.

Lots of people moaned that it went away.

So I took it upon myself to moan at the moaners.

Works both ways.

And that's my final word on it. You can bang on about this, or me as much as you like.

First up, I don't recall you ever contacting me about the server - only about random other stuff like my car, other's cars or to tell (often sexist and racist) "jokes', and since you have quoted the same thing twice now, I'll put it on record that I've never said "yeah im busy dont bother me" to anyone, ever.

And in the same way I wasn't patronising, I wasn't blaming either. Just stating a fact. So that's 2 things you've become confused about from the original post I made.

*shrug*

And THATs my last word on this part of the thread too. As with Martin, feel free to carry on as much as yuu like about this thread or me. I've said my bit.

This isn't relevant to the masses, and serves only as propaganda for/against you all. Can this not be resolved privately?

I'd like the oppertunity to form my own opinions about my friends here! Atex accused me of brushing over things without getting involved last time, but i'm fairly sure this constututes an opinion:-

Cat/Martin - Its not Gaz's job to keep this running, and he is very busy....that can't be helped.

Gaz - Maybe suggest a cause of action for us to take if this should happen again? Rightly or wrongly i made a link between the server and your isp... and thus was sure you notice. I even went and read plusnet service bulletins. - there was even one that sounded like it could be linked.

I reckon this should be private as well, no need for a slanging match.

I personally didnt email/pm Gaz as i just assumed that because it was his server he was having tech problems and was working to fix it.
Next time it happens, expect a flood of emails :lol:

It's like IT in work, they're busy and unless it's urgent you don't want to hassle them.

I didn't think it got urgent and I don't think anyone said it did... I agree with JT and Murf, and I reckon this should be in the hall of shame, cos it's a great example of how a thread should not go.

It's a good club, it helps if we're friends.

Some interesting reading....:shock:

I'm just glad it's back. Sitting in the corner for 3 days with the windows and curtains shut is nice, but a bit boring. Yes, my life fell apart too when the forum went down. Told me it was a 'critical error'....not as critical as the fact my only link to the outside world was gone! :lol:

Glad it's back anyways...:D

I think taking issues off the forum and privatley texting people using that kind of language is totally unacceptable for anyone, especially website admin. It's bad enough seeing that kind of language used in reply to users on for forum alone.

Yes, we are only 'users' here, but some of us have contributed monetarily to this site aswell as hopefully helpful comments/advice/organising meets etc also, so surley some legitimate questions about the forum being down for so long shouldn't have provoked such a response?

I did email Daniel after the forum was down a couple of days as I had his email address from a while back, but had no reply. I realise admin can't be on hand every day/week, but this was only a thread started by regular users asking what had happened.

This is a great website/forum and let's not forget a lot of hard work must go into it, all credit to admin, let's not spoil it like this. Think we need a group hug at the Lincs meet amigos. :wink:

Oh dear.

Ok, so Gaz, Daniel and Laserowl are getting it in the neck because the forum was down a couple of days.

Wayne is only a moderator he could not have done anything even if he wanted to, except text Gaz or Daniel like we all could have, I didn’t this time because I thought it might have been another problem with hackers like we had last time the forum was down for a few days (around Christmas I think) I text Gaz then and he told me what was going on and he was on top of the matter, I assumed the same for this but next time I know, just a little message.

Now Gaz and Daniel maybe incharge but they do need our help to let them know when things go wrong, Like everyone criticises the police because they don’t deal with a problem in a neighbourhood, we look at the computer, what problem? Has anyone reported it? NO. So we don’t know there is a problem until someone tells us. Or something is happening as we pass and we deal with it there and then

So see Gaz and Daniel as like the police, we as users are the community, something is wrong report it to the police, not everyone has Gaz’/Daniel’s mobile so text someone else and ask them to forward it.

So conclusion, as was told in a thread which I am ashamed to say I brought into disrepute Gaz said ‘Dirty washing doesn’t get aired on the forum’ So MSN and PM are the way.

At the end of the day what Gaz and Daniel do when they are not around here isn’t any of our business, lets just be grateful that we have a forum where we can all come together to chat and get help.

Sexist and rascist jokes eh Gary?

Well now whos on the old puritanical fucking high horse!!!!!

Seems that its been ok to make my jokes on here until you conveniently choose this time to bring it up!Confused?Fuck right off!There he goes again,being totally bloody arrogant and patronising without even knowing anything about how confused or not confused I may or may not be!A real man can admit when he is wrong,not always have to come back with the last fucking word,once twice or 7 times!Grow up yourself!!Confirms exactly what I said in the first place which you deny again and again!

Thats fucking low,just admit youve not been exactly approachable with your attitude.I have contacted you the once the last time the server went down out of interest in the forum.This was last year so maybe why you cant remember.I wasnt going to phone you as right from when I joined youve made it very obvious you have a very busy life.This is what I meant about drawing boumdaries.Your car?Yes,I wanted it,why not?Sounded very nice!I called you about the forum and asked you about the car in the same conversation.

The forum is very addictive and is very much a part of my daily life.If its not there,I miss it,simple!

Now I know what to do,which is to ring you,I shall!

Like you Gary,I also have very strong opinions and stick to my guns if I believe what Im saying is right.I also do have a rascist and sexist sense of humour.ONE WE HAVE BOTH SHARED ON MSN on the odd occasion.So what?So have some other sick bastards out there too!

Ive had enough now!
