Default I'm Back.Let's Try Again!

Ok, after a 3+ month self-imposed exile, I'm going to give it another try.

For those that don't know and are interested, I left the forum for the main reason that I was attacked for just about every post I made and it got to the stage where enough is enough! It's very demoralizing when it gets to the stage where you're apprehensive about helping someone because someone else will knock you down! I DO have useful information to impart and, like many others, I'm not always correct as things change and we are ALL capable of misunderstanding a situation, but there are ways of correcting it!

Anyway, I don't plan on dwelling on the past. Let's look forward.

Hi Guindalf. Just to get you back up to speed, there's no contentious issues on BE at the mo so no harsh words in the last several weeks, all is sweetness and light.

Welcome Back Guindalf!!

Ignore the F***wits - and slam the others with your superior intellect. Now, get over to the consequences of brexit and impart your wisdom. Unlike madshitter who has none.

Thanks, all. Unfortunately, I have nothing to say on Brexit because I haven't been following it and have no idea what it means one way or the other!

I hate politics, but I do feel I should know more about what's going on than I do. I try NOT to pitch in when I have no idea what I'm talking about (unlike some! ).

As for the sweetness & light, Robin, I just plain don't believe you!

...Oh, and I mentioned the war once, but I think I got away with it!

Welcome back Guindalf. It's good to see you again.

Hopefully our exchanges in future will be more positive.
