Below is a copy of my post on Listener 4475. I would remind everyone of their responsibilities in helping to keep this Forum a friendly place where users can chat and have friendly banter, the operative word being FRIENDLY.
It is only a minority of users involved in this particular spat but I thought I would take the opportunity to to remind all users that we will not tolerate this sort of behaviour. Guilty parties will be banned if it occurs again.
"CHILDREN IN THE PLAYGROUND
I have received complaints about various posts in this thread so can the guilty parties please stop behaving like children in the playground. I do not care who started it and who said what to whom, I just want it stopping NOW.
Two quotes are below
It is all getting a bit personal and detracts from the relaxation and
intellectual enjoyment of these for which I usually so enjoy .
The cause of the problem this week has been caused by some
people's intolerance to the opinions of others.
I do not want to ban anyone but I will not hesitate if this behaviour continues.
I have no intention of stopping friendly banter but this has gone beyond that.
STOP IT NOW!!!!"
