Welcome to the civilized world :beer:

Freedom of speech is a core value over here but miss-using that has been dealt in respectful manners in past. All the members here likes to get involved in friendly discussions and arguments but just for sake of exchanging knowledge and expressing their point of view, with this mandate, I am pretty sure you will find this board full of intellects and knowledgeable blokes and i can say we are glad to have another one onboard. :)

Enjoy
Tough Luck!

Welcome Andrew, have a great time, and I envision many healthy debates about the success or otherwise of the 2013 Macca.

I am just amazed that someone got through all the spam filters you guys put up ;)

Yeah - the barrier has been set pretty high. But just so everyone knows, we were getting up to 40 spam sign ups per day!! :eek:

Thanks for the welcome. I'm always up for a good discussion as long as there is mutual respect and I always like an opportunity to learn.

As long as there are no Macca/Whitmarsh/Button conspiracy theories I'm happy. I was flamed by the resident trolls in my last forum for saying it would be stupid to write of McLaren for 2013 given that they are always there or thereabouts. The hate is that strong! :banghead:

Likewise Lew. :beer:

When I signed up to 2 forums I made the wrong choice after about a year of deliberation. Looking to make amends and make up for lost time now. :D

Hope to see you on here more regularly now.

You should really ditch the other forum and switch to here like I've done. It's so much better! :dance:

Nahhh, I know why you've left, but I've still got many friends there, and it's a place I still love. I fully expect you to be back there at some point in the future too :hihi: ;) ;)

Having said that, I'll still post here too, of course.
