    But thanks, I have already "got it into my head" it is a failing of the forum software. That is why I tediously copy and paste all longer posts, as I suspect do other long term posters.

    Please PM me directly in future rather than taking a thread off topic. Please see forum rule 15 (amongst others).

    -Or if you want to attempt to publicly shame me, use TAB. More than happy and capable to defend myself on there.

    NB I won't be replying to you further on here unless it is relevant to the thread.

    Nice one. Shall we dig up the 'Jeffrey' saga?

      From the forum rules;

      22. Do not post comments which denigrate the LandlordZONE website, its administrators, moderators or advertisers.

      23. Members must discuss site/forum management issues via PM with Administrators / Moderators and not raise gripes in public threads.

      And note that TaB is not the place for this kind of discussion, should be 'How to use these forums'.

        I'll see your 2 infringements and raise you 4;

        From the forum rules;

        7. Be civil – watch your language and do not insult or antagonise other Members.

        15. Do not introduce new topics/problems to someone else’s thread and interrupt (hi-jack) a topic of discussion.

        16. Restrict off-subject topics to the Take a Break Forum.

        24. Only post responses when you have something constructive to say or contribute.

          How far do you want to take this?

          Your post in the thread, the starting point for all this, breached those forum rules I quoted, and items 7 and 24 that you quote if you want to use those arguments. Since there is only one moderator (have you seen any other moderator posts in the last 7 years?) then how do you expect me to interpret 'the mad moderator', and if you are clear that it is forum software that blocks posts why use those words?

              Guys, come on, pack it in. I value both of you, and would not like to see either of you leave.

              BTW, Andy, can you retrieve the missing reply in my thread 'More builder's bungles to repair'?

                This term has been used several times, and I have always taken it to mean the automated system, not a person.

                  I'm not leaving, I guess Boletus isn't and no one is getting banned / reprimanded.

                    I only found one blocked post from 3rd Oct? Is that the one you mean?

                        Well that is good to know as it certainly sounded like a threat.

                        By your own admission there is another moderator- the forum software that automatically blocks posts.

                        My post;

                        Double posted as flagged as spam by the mad moderator.
                        Flagged means "brought to the attention of someone" so was clearly not aimed at you.

                        Arguably, I may have breached forum rules by insulting the forum software.

                        You however, have severally breached forum rules by hi-jacking a topic of discussion, insulting members and having nothing constructive to say or contribute.

                        You were out of order and were rightly called out on it.


                        Edit to add: Point made. I won't refer to moderators again, mad or otherwise.
                        Please feel free to have the last comment and then delete the whole daft thread.

                          May I suggest a more balanced approach toward landlords as opposed to landlordzone's tenant-centric views it promotes through its regular members? I've noticed the forum tends to support members who defend tenants and look down on landlords as a general rule, and vice versa. It would be of great help...

                          It would be very difficult to control the bias of the forum in any practical way, and it’s not something LLZ was set up to do. I don’t believe there is a general problem even though some might be able to point to specific threads where questionable advice has been given.

                          Every landlord experience is a free lesson for other landlords.
                          I've learned a huge amount from other landlord's cock ups (many of which I was also guilty of).

                          Remember that many "good" landlords LOVE the bizarre and convoluted legislation that hammers both tenants and landlords. The more bizarre, convoluted, damaging, time consuming and costly the better. Especially loved by large landlords or agency-landlords with large portfolios who can deal...

                          This is a very good point, and one which we also raise frequently on a disability/benefits forum where I'm a regular.

                          When things are going right people don't need to look for advice, and have no need to ask questions on a forum.

                          So you only see the stories where things have...

                          Anyone can sign up and post here.
                          If the advice on the forum seems biased in favour of tenants, it would be possible for someone to offer a balancing opinion.

                          The operators of this forum don't have much ability to set a forum policy as such.

                          For real?

                          You would prefer to only see one side of things.

                          I see mostly landlords as regular members here, with a sprinkling of tenant regular members to give a different viewpoint.
                          As well as some who have been both - and maybe still are both at the same time.
