      Friends and family code (LOL)

      It seems to me that the majority of people on here seem ****** off with people asking for friends and family codes. I am one of them' i wouldn't have even know about the codes if it wasn't mentioned from a thread on detailingworld. Everyone enjoys something for nothing' if people feel so strongly then stop giving out codes period. This forum is exactly like detailingworld in its atitude to newbies but i will always try to help anyway i can rather than just make stupid comments' i did not write this to stir trouble up but to give feedback.
      Regards jay

      Keeping it simple:

      When someone has a few codes to offer, they post a request for people to send a PM (Personal Message).

      Due to it being so popular, within a couple of days all the codes will have gone normally.

      Even when a message to this effect has been posted, some people persist is posting their email address on a public forum, requesting a code to be sent to them.

      The instructions were in the original post.

      If anyone else has a set of codes that they wish to giveaway, then no one is stopping them.

      It would be nice if others could follow the simple instructions and not blitz the forum with requests in numerous threads (yes the same person will post in 3, 4 or more threads) requesting that someone send them a code.

      Just like some people would be annoyed if someone posted a request for help with their Sky STB in 4 different posts in a space of 10 minutes, I think it is quite understandable that when simple instructions are not followed, people get upset.
