Re: SELECTIVE FORUM INDEX
And thank you for the thank yous. I admit that this index was intended as a farewell present to you all. I've left and returned several times and, like any addiction, I'd be a hypocrite to pretend I might not come back again some time. I managed 3 months or so this year, then AReader posted that bloody Throwaway Lines thread - too good to ignore - and I was sucked back in. Yes, I have some gripes at Car, but I think TP, SJH and whoever else do a pretty good job with Car Online under Bauer’s leaden hand. My main reason for going is simply lack of time - and I just don’t have the temperament to dip in a couple of times a week.
But I am a bit disturbed at Batty's and AReader's comments. This certainly wasn’t intended as a provocation to persuade any of you that the best days were over. In a way, I thought it might encourage some of us (I mean 'you', stop it Sean, you will leave) to re-explore some old threads, and alert others to how much potential there is here. Some of the thread topics are inspired, but generally it’s the quality of comment I’ve enjoyed. Other sites I’ve looked at might start OK, but often seem to degenerate into a couple of blokes discussing DIY or some such.
Anyway, you will do what you do, and I wish you all the very best. I’ve enjoyed being here greatly. Some of you have my email so, if that Northern Hemisphere get together ever happens, do let me know. I'll try my best.
