    The star system for threads

    ...seems pretty pointless. I propose it is scrapped. It would appear that only the thread author ever uses it, to give their own thread 5 stars.

    I can see the point of rating/valuing individual contributions to a thread, but not the whole thing. If the thread is that useful and informative, it will probably end up as a sticky, after being nominated for this by a forum regular.

  • Unite to change landlord rights
    Time for change
    Hi all. I have read so many things about landlords suffering at the hands of tenants, and how the system stinks,yet I haven't managed to come across anything where we are fighting back. I myself have suffered some nightmare tenants, and imagine it only to get worse. So could we not all stand together...

    It just appears to me that decent tenants and decent landlords get screwed over. Yet anyone who is a nightmare seems to get away with it. Where is the middle ground. I get what you are saying, MPs are useless,and the system is only interested in getting more money for themselves,but surely thing's only...

    Are you his financial adviser, solicitor, letting agent? Why can't/won't he ask this simple question himself?

    Being a Landlord is on par with being a social pariah, I hardly ever mention to anyone that I own a second property that I let.
    Make sure you understand the laws and regulations to protect yourself, find a good support group and ideally try to get accredited. It's quite cheap nowdays and it's...

    Because muddy water is best left to clear by leaving it alone. And because you can't fight idiots who don't care about facts and about evidence.

    Don't argue for landlords- argue for tenants - for the right of decent civilised tenants to be able to find cost-effective flexible accommodation...

    Wrote a post response with a link to an old thread within this forum and posted fine. Realised I linked to the thread rather than the specific post, so edited and corrected the link by removing the existing and reinserting the correct link. So still just the one link, and it's a link to another forum...

    Of course I don't blame the moderators. I posted here partly to vent sure, but also partly to see if the admin / operator of the forum can either relax it a bit or put in more fine grain spam control to not catch innocent posts while still keeping the spam out.
