IF I hadn't spent most of xmas trying to sort out my lack of connection to the new service (installing xmas eve was always gonna be a gamble)... Id have posted sooner... as it is...

Greetings and felicitations .... have had a year without ANY Mo'sport... I guess this is how fans drift away...

Back to work and pain tomorrow :(


Well it's good to see you, better late than never ;)

Yeah I have watched F1 this year more out of habit/desperation to watch motorsport, rather than enjoyment most of the time I think. My cousin goes racing in his old Austin A35, how I wish I could go with him!! He has great fun.

Cheers for that.

I can live with most posters but not mods power tripping so no coming back until next rotation or at all I guess.

Nice discussing with you tho, appreciate the on topic and useful info. 8)

Balue I hope you will come back. I understand you were upset but we all make mistakes and I am sure no one meant to upset you. Can't you just give it a try? I for one enjoyed your posts and I know I'm not alone in that. At least think about it okay?

Whatever you decide, all the best 8)

Cheers for the nice comments.

Mistakes are one thing but that was not the case here which means more of the same likely so no point to invest any more.

Nice meeting you all though. This is a nice little place that could easily develop into quite a good resource.

Sorry, but I am completely mystified as to what you are so upset over.

My PM to you about it is marked as read so it seems strange you would have missed it.

In fact, this proves the point as saying it's "completely mystifying" when it's clearly explained in a PM only goes to show how you are just out to provoke, not be reasonable or objective.

That is a little unfair given I know Lawrence has told you that no offence was intended and that he will make a point of not moderating your posts in future to prevent any further problems. I don't know what more you want him to do, he's not putting you or anyone down, he's trying to sort it out and move forward.

Hi all its been a couple or more years since I posted here in that time Ive spent 14 months in hospital (6 months in a coma in intensive care) after a heart transplant that went horribly wrong then after 11 months they let me out and I promptly broke my hip spent a further 3 months in hospital and have 3 screws in that now to hold. Finally started to get on top of the health issues have just retired to Noosa Heads in sunny Queensland to resume my writing career with five novels underway plus my autobiography which is almost complete and concentrates on my 30 years in the cutthroat music industry. Anyway I know Paul has kept Lyria up to date from time to time and hopefully once Im settled into a new home in a few weeks I will get a chance to chat with you guys again - say whatever happened to that Gugs guy did they finally ban him from every forum lol :rotflmao:

Hey you, good to know you're doing so well. Yes Paul has kept me up to date and I'm happy to 'see' you around these parts again :yay: Look after yourself okay? Cheers for dropping by and if you do want a chat that would be nice, there aren't many regulars here anymore, but those of us who remain seem to manage to get along just fine most of the time. We're a small group but that's okay, the delete key doesn't get used that often these days, my finger is always ready though, just in case ;) :rotflmao:
