More than welcome Flint. Pull up a seat - tea or coffee, or something stronger? So what brings you here? Refugee from TOP - t'other place aka prune perhaps.

I'll second that welcome. Even if you're a lefty or a remainer, as long as you can disagree without snarky condescending remarks!
One thing you can say for the French, when civilization falls they have less far to fall than everyone else.

Yeah, I quit the other place a few years ago. Last straw for me was when, as a mod, I bollocked a member for doing something another mod had already told him not to do. It was nothing serious but he was just being a dickhead. Someone behind the scenes then told that member not only my non-mod username but also my real, proper, out-in-the-world identity.

I wasn't all that precious about my details but either Danny or Rob wanted to do anything about it and that got me wondering what else they'd 'let slip'. So I quietly quit. I think it was two months before my forum deterirated into a deep enough shitfight for them to ask where I was. :D Fukkem.

aaaaaaanyway. I recognise a few names here from the good old days, thanks for the welcome.

We started off nearly four years ago as "pprunned", a place for those who had been prunned from pprune. I would suspect that 80-90% of our members have at some time been members of the other place. It's very rare for me to have to intervene in some petty squabble. Discovered if I ignore any such they will go away. :D

My own membership of TOP went back to 2005. Corresponded at some length with PPRuNe Pop in 2009. They won't let me back these days on account I set up in opposition. :D I post as Admin on admin issues, and Alison when joining in the affray.

I identify as a brontosaurus you sexist bastard.

And it's okay, I'm not stalking Alison. I used to live in NSW/Qld. (The NT too but I think I'm over that now).
