dictionary preferably english but spelling so bad any language will do as you all seem to understand me any way :doh:
I agree with you, TNT.What is wrong with this forum?
I frequent from time to time and have found some very useful knowledge, so thank you to those who have provided me and also others with useful information.
I have also found a lot of bitching, backstabbing and general negative vibe on this forum.
I have been on the receiving end of it myself in months gone by.
What exactly is your issues robfm with Richard? you have made several posts today slagging this man off directly - ok so he has several Benelli's, so what? why don't you join him and buy a few LE Model bikes?
There have been several other posts recently from various on the forum having issues with other members.. why dont you all be grown up and if you have issues pm each other?
I saw a post last week which was by pony saying there are members on this forum that own a Benelli that "we" would like to see the back of! If you have issues with members, why dont you pm them or email them? at least back up your words with these members that you and your friends have issues with.
I will probably be castigated now by the old school members or the Benelli Forum Clique but I just feel that this forum has over the last while - I have been on and off this forum for 3 yrs - developed a little into a random chat room which sometimes gets out of hand.
I do not wish to offend anyone with this post, I believe in openess and honesty and just wish others felt the same. Peace to all. Good night.
Hello ColinFor my part, anything I have said in the past has either been light hearted banter or me expressing my own opinion on things that have gone on, as I am quite entitled to do. In terms of things said between me and Richard, there are 2 sides to it - firstly he makes not secret of the fact he is loaded.. quite the opposite, so I think the loadsamoney banter is just that - lighthearted banter. The second thing is that I have been honest with Richard that I think some of the things he did in his early days on the forum were underhand and devious. I have not skirted the issue and to be fair he seems to now have a more honest approach to things so I don't think there is any problem as far as I am concerned. I make no apologies for speaking my mind, but If anyone has taken anything I have said as bullying then it was not my intention and if it makes you feel any better having seen way things have been going recently on the forum I am personally going to steer clear of posting anything which could be misconstrued as I would rather that then be labelled a bully or part of a "clique". I post a lot on the forum and have made a lot of friends on here. If that makes me part of a clique then I am not sure what I can do about that? I am sure anyone who has met me in person would back me up when I say that I am not the bullying type!
In all honesty forums are delicate environments where often minor spats and banter can be taken out of context and get blown out of proportion to ruin the atmosphere. I am sure if everyone were to meet up even the people who have not got on in the past would bury the hatchet over a common love of the main reason we are all here.
Yes I did write something not in my normal manner and that was because i was furious to see someone who only posts in at times when they feel their comments are heart felt is wrong and in a moment of madness wrote and came back to my senses- how many have not done that . re meeting well for my part i've held various events and all who came enjoyed and as i'm known a very kind gent who would do anything for everyone and i more than anyone can stand back and be proud to have so many that have enjoyed things that have taken place - have you ever attended any of these ? - I wont deny things in the past have affected me that has gone on and i'm a soft kind guy and for that reason take things to heart . maybe if you met me and saw things you would have a different opinion .
Right i'm off to save the world , fight crime and go drink some coffee !!
