Mike Otley left of his own accord, and would be welcome back anytime he wishes.

It's certainly a shame to lose Mike (who I have actually met). Let's hope he comes back. Smile

Mike is lovely...I still keep up with him on Facebook.

As for Chris L...he maybe needed gagging in the forums on occasion but was a total gent on a private message.....even when I bought a Mac......he definitely has a gentler side that maybe doesnt come through when hes on a full rant.

The word Bully has become the new internet version of Racist. If Chris was a bully then Mr Bloom is a Fascist.

Not a bully...(at all)....maybe a forcefully over passionate delivery...sometimes.

My experience is the same as Cathy's... my exchanges with Chris_L off forum were always perfectly civilised. Why he felt the need to act (at times) like a pit bull terrier on the forum - never letting go of anything - I am not sure.

Oddly enough I do think the site was important to him, otherwise he would surely have just said, in modern youth parlance, "Whatever!", or similar and moved along..........

"Cos you is black", is I believe the correct phrase! Grin

These days bully does seem to rank along with racist in the 'worst things you can call a person' in an (ahem!) enlightened society!
