    You might be good at setting up an IT community for education techs but your skills at organising that brewery sponsored p*ss up are sorely lacking... Don't give up the day job..

    Mmm - you left the BBQ out in this weather? It's gonna rust you know! Still, you can put me down for a burger - so long as it doesn't get too soggy

    Given the smiley face and troll icon, I'm hoping and assuming that comment was in jest

    I wasn't including you in that comment, Gareth, I'd say you fit squarely into the first category continik defined, as an active member who makes a worthwhile contribution but has some constructive criticisms from time to time.

    I was talking about accounts which only appear to exist to post criticisms, pick arguments and generally troll, and suggesting that such accounts may be a second account set up for the purpose by a more established member as a sockpuppet.

    To be honest, I thing the site works really well. The ratio of trolls & idiots compared to really friendly, helpfull people is a lot better than I've found on a lot of other forums.
    I have no problem with threads being deleted if the admins feel it necessary and to be honest if the complainers just chilled out for a day and thought about why the thread had been deleted then they would learn a valuable lesson.
    The only thing I don't like to see is Mods taking the bait and posting narky comments back in threads when people criticise them. Please, just red card or PM the person involved, no need to sink to their level.

    Likewise, although it's slightly less obvious (but it's there if you look for it).
