Good post really. I don't get the idea of dragging the mood of the forum down because you have lots to say, but it is all negative. we've a saboteurs from within and from other sites who hate us for some reason.
I'm not saying they are all gone, we will have many "new members" some back for round two or three. We have had several banned members the same person coming back again. Security isn't flawless, we ban you from re-entering the forum about 8 ways - no details, but that is a lot, but still people can get back, it isn't that hard.
We aren't living some optimistic John Lennon Song here, it is just a modest beekeeping forum - leave your boxing gloves home. We all love the great debates we have had, and may they continue forever, but lordy eventual it turns into Lord of the Flies and everyone is treated like Piggy.
PS we just passed year 8 I believe, so happy anniversary to all of you.
