If there's spam on the forum, you can report it, but since I'm here from 9-5 Monday to Friday it might be easier for you to just email me (I don't get the reports, I think Jen does). I won't post my email here because it'll get on some bot's spam list, but it's findable from the bottom of the Contact Us page, which you'll notice is on the top right of your page. I also check the forum regularly so if you can't be bothered finding my email address then you can PM me, but this will get a slower response. Cheers!

More commie chinese junk like today my commie chinese disk grinder lasted 4 grinding disks and a cutoff disk.. It cost 24.00 from warehouse wife will return it for me as she has done with the last 5. They normally last about 10 disks before the gears strip.
I will keep on swopping it till I die or they finally make the gears stronger.

That's the thing with cheap tools, they make them cheap "designed for occasional home use" they say. Well, the joke is on them :)

Jen and I get the reported posts, we can add you Siobhan if you really want?

To be honest they go to my Orcon account, which gets checked as frequently as I visit PressF1, so largely I ignore them because I've already cleared the spam ... That, or Jen beats me to it half the time when I'm trying to maintain a bit of a life outside of my PC. Wifes rules and all ... ;)

I've been out of the country for a week and having just viewed the 40+ reported spam emails in my absence, still managed to find a few still 'live' ... :p You need more coffee/Red Bull Chill ! :D

However Siobhan, I agree with Chill's comments. If you want to receive the reported posts we can add you to the 'mailing' list. Could get a bit messy if some people only email you and don't actually use the proper report function.

It would be nice having someone on 'day' duty to help mop up the spam and separate the members having a toy throwing session. :)

It was thanks!. :D

I am ignoring the small fact I spent a week in Fiji and did not see blue skies once but did enjoy the warm rain and the tropical cyclone that went through Sun/Mon. :wub

This has to be on a par with Climate change.

At least.

But as you say, it's good to have Sinbad with us.
