I'm sorry to say that in the last few days we have had a rather disappointing example of abuse of this forum, specifically a member whose conduct was harassing, aggressive and inappropriate.
In the normal run of things we would issue warnings on conduct, increasing in severity. However, in this instance, we received so many complaints in such a short space of time that we have chosen to ban the member concerned. I do not propose to name the individual but I'm sure many of you will be aware of this.
This is intended to be a site for intelligent information exchange and not a vehicle for self marketing. Equally much we hope and expect that all discussions are conducted with respect towards the other parties involved. We do not tolerate abuse, cyberbullying or similar.
It is the nature of discussion that there will always be differences of opinion. However we expect those to be expressed with due civility. On this particular occasion, that has not been the case and we have taken the action we deem necessary.
Thank you for your understanding
