    I think someone wrongly assumed that I was some sort of landlord or freeholder trying to rake some money in for my personal benefit. Nothing to do with needing a thicker skin.
    A few years back a legally qualified poster 'Jeffrey' was chased from this site and some said he needed a thicker skin. In his case he was the sole reason that many came to the forum for his legal knowledge. This forum has never recovered from the loss.

      I don't know exactly why he left but I miss Jeffrey very much

        I have found some of Jeffrey's posts very useful. However looking at his most recent activity in 2011 there appears nothing to suggest he was chased from this site.

          Quite. He chose to leave; he acted of his own free will. Nobody chased him anywhere. Some of us know the reason he decided to go and it was nothing to do with the actions of other members. Jeffrey had a hide like a rhinoceros and an unshakeable conviction that he was right. Rest assured, he would not have gone anywhere unless he wanted to.

            When I first lurked at this site seeking leasehold/freehold queries Jeffrey and (I think off the top of my head) Richard who also seems gone were the standout posters in that field.

            Leaseholderanswers was the holder of that mantle when I joined, he not only provided legal answers/opinions but also provided some robust common sense solutions. Does anyone know if something has happened to him, and is he ok?

              Yes, I am wondering what happened to LHA also. He mentioned he was going in for knee surgery last year. I had a bad feeling about that, as from what he told us, he was rather a big bloke, though only the same age as me.

                I shall try to contact him by more conventional means than just a feeling in my waters and let you know, if possible, what became of him.

                  Is it my imagination or did this thread disappear for a while then come back again?

                  Perhaps I am going mad.

                    Yes please do, I emailed him at an address I had for him but got no reply.
                    Hope he's well, his advice really helped me out.
