    As for my impartiality (or not!) then check out my last umpteen posts! They have been (in my humble opinion!) very impartial except when somebody has unfairly criticised one particular MIS!

    So can I take it that the current advertisement was approved on a 'best value' approach i.e. Edugeek advertising went to the bidder who responded with the best offer to the 'tender invitation'?
    Or is there some insider influence?
    Sivadam - Get off your high horse for a second and look at this size of this site. The number of members, the conferences it provides, etc... And realise that there are now a couple of people on the payroll to keep it running. That costs money. This is done via advertising, and amazingly the companies that want to advertise on a site aimed at educational IT professionals are... education IT companies! Shocking isn't it?

    The owners of this site are free to do whatever they want with it, including get advertising from a small start-up looking to get an 'in' into the MIS market. There are no rules regarding who gets to advertise outside of what the owners say! This isn't a publicly funded endeavour, so stop trying to make it sound like them having an advertiser who you seem to find fault with is an affront to all that is decent and holy!

    As far as I know, anyone can approach Dos_Box and ask to advertise here. Why would there be any 'tendering' going on?!

    If it had gone out to tender then fair enough. Have all MIS providers been given the option of sponsoring the site?

    Anyone can contact the site to advertise. That's how it has always been!

    Thank you to those that have sent me private messages!

    The owners of this site will also have to get used to my opinions! Whilst ever I have access that is ....... !

    I know for a fact that some readers of this site will not contribute as they do not want to get the reactions that I welcome from some of the contributors!

    If you are going to publicly slam this site and call it disgusting, you are going to receive a public response. You can't have it both ways. You should have contacted DB directly, rather than getting in a huff on here.

    I have been offended many times by posts on this site and nobody (as far as I remember) has ever apologised to me. Just further offence by backing the statements that first caused that offence!

    And as I have said before. I will never go behind anybody's back. I will post here what I think is necessary. That also has the advantage of encouraging others to do the same!

    As for huff! I am actually quite controlled in what I say!

    Mike, you know for a fact (We had our differences once upon a time!) that I never pull any punches... And neither should you everyone should voice their opinions (constructively) here.

    Sivadam I don't understand what you are actually annoyed about? The MIS forum could be sponsored by 'Sivadam' if you wanted to stump up the cash..

    I think that you mis-read me! How can anybody detect my emotions in words. I am not annoyed about anything!
    My son does exactly the same when reading text messgaes on his phone. Words are words and not emotions!

    Graham,
    As you know - I could have differences with anybody. I have quite a few with Capita as well. But because I say my piece, both for and against something, then people usual respect my opinion. I know that Capita do!
    You are obviously aware of the respect that I have for your knowledge and experience as I believe you have for mine! That obviously would not prevent us having differing opinions on certain issues, as these would be based on that mutual respect!
    Thanks for your support!

    Correct!
    Stating opinions in text cannot ever portray one's feelings unless you actually state those feelings!
    In discussions with people verbally I can totally disagree with anything without getting annoyed! Maybe 40+ years ago I couldn't but one does learn a little restraint over the decades!
