    Yes but lets stop threads that go that way - they are not in the spirit of the forum.

    Maybe yeah. But I will continue to use the site until the middle aged women who work here use it to arrange their 'Disco Nights'.

    I think what you're referring to with the poll is actually a sneaky way of advertising :-)

    I can't say as it hurts to have a bit more of a social interaction between the members. As you say as long as it doesn't spiral out of control.

    I dont think it is - i presume i might have something to do with this, but im not technically minded - an am eager to learn from technical people such as yourselves on here.
    and therefore, chatting normally seems to be a bit of a problem for some people.

    We're geeks, is that to be unexpected?

    Some cynics may say you're trying to befriend people with the posts to gain business. I don't know, maybe the lack of a relentless has made me grumpy today.

    And I used to think I was a die-hard cynic. But to be honest fair play to danielle if that's what she's doing. I don't see a problem with it. If people can get good deals then that's cool.

    yea because I don't know what a geek is. I dont look at people differently or treat them differently because they categorise themselves into something that within itself makes you seem unapproachable.
    I like learning and as technologu moves so quickly I like ot keep up to date but put some fun into it.
    I'm not hear to obtain new business people - I am a supplier but I cant advertise because I'm not sponsor.
