Yes , let’s move on Flatty with this excellent forum. But before we do , could I respectfully ask you to retract that statement you made about me. It was unfair and totally untrue.
I , and maybe some others , got the impression that you wanted to ‘pass on the torch’ as a matter of some urgency. After all , we do not know what your personal circumstances are or why you had the desire to leave.
I thought you would be happy that Paul agreed to take on the task and that so many people were behind him.
I’m extremely sorry you thought I was glad you were leaving. On the contrary , as I stated in a public post to you , I felt you had done an excellent job and I was sorry to hear you were leaving.
Having said that I appreciated that you couldn’t keep it up indefinitely as it’s a thankless and tough job.
Not many would take it on. And I was afraid if you left it too long to get back to us about it , Paul would lose his enthusiasm and withdraw his very generous offer.
The forum is important to me , I like the people here and I very much enjoy my interaction with them.
I also like and respect Mark Carder and I certainly don’t want to add to the pressures of his work.
I hope you understand this Flatty.
It has all been a terrible misunderstanding and I humbly apologise for my part in adding to it.
The last thing we need is unnecessary confrontation on this very special forum.
