      tbh - We don't really want to say any more or even point out which thread it was, that has caused this situation.

      Once we had seen the contents of the offending post and the phrases used by the OP - we immediately decided to remove the thread from the public domain, in response to the initial request.

      The thread has now been removed, as well as the OP removed from being a member on here.

      Hopefully, we have now learnt a lesson, and as per my first post, people will refrain from this in the future. It has been a worrying 24 hours for myself and Glenn, certainly something we don't want to go through again. Hence the zero tolerance as from yesterday.

      Really got to love the faceless heroes of the internet....are people actually that sad and have nothing better to do than involve solicitors over something said on an internet forum board?....

      Re: Zero Tolerance - Libel / Defamatory Postings

      Just a heads up - We have today deleted a fair few posts by a member as they were completely unhelpful and could be seen as insulting. This member now has to have their posts vetted by an admin or a moderator before they will show up.

      We have absolutely no desire to accept these sort of postings, and as previously stated, we will take action to delete / remove / close threads.

      We are a user based help site, not a dumping ground for abusive or insulting comments. If you have nothing useful to say or post, then please don't bother.

      For those of you who have made us aware of such postings, thank you.

      For those of you who do come across comments / posts that are absolutely pointless or break our rules, please let us know by using the 'Report this post' button and we will then appraise whether it can stay or be deleted.

      The 'Report this post button' looks like this. and can be found top right hand corner of the posts in our forum.

      I was wondering why there seemed to be gaps in some posts. Now I know.
      Thanks for the heads up Ged

      I can only recall a couple in the past 3 years. However the ones that have fallen into this category have imho been given a bit too much leeway.

      So you have been following the forum for 3 years. That is unusual for someone who is posting from China. I am afraid you look like a potential spammer and these are not tolerated here either.
