1. You both need to get a LIFE (There is more in this world then Press F1)

2. What you Guys said in this thread (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=53183)

Is
A. Bulling (Via the internet)/ picking on me.
B. Is Braking rule 1 & 6 of the Press F1 Rules (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=53183)

I was going to use the f*** word a few time is this thread, but I thought, I better not since I want to leave this forum in a Good way

To FAQ/Susan B – I Will IM/e-mail you some time…., & I have not forgotten about the FAQ ;)

The only Reason why I am leaving Press F1 is because of WTF aka whtafo & metla

Or there would have been a right flame war

I'm leaving too. Bye everyone. Nice to have you around when help was required. But if you just look at the state of forum, it is full of nonsense. I think stu has made a good call at who is responsible for the mess.

Don't worry, I'll be tempted to return. But I wont be helping anyone, thats for sure.

I think he says what many feel. Metla may have a laugh behind what he writes ( as some think) but whtafo is just plain nasty at the keyboard ( despite his claim to be just a nice guy. He can help, as we have seen, but more of that would be welcome.
Back off, whtafo - you are spoiling this forum.

The winds of change are a blowin.

Ridicules situation anyhow,i have put considerable time and effort into helping out hundreds of people,and in return some of the other regulars sit on their thrones condeming all that don't live up to some pompus standard,or get up in arms about spelling,or fire off emails complaining about blunt views or the fact they don't like someones personality.

And then they get even more upset when their meddling earns a negative responce.

It must be grand going through life thinking the world revolves around their ego's.

Don't go Stu.

I agree that this forum is not how it used to be, but your input to this forum has been valuable. People say I have been "following along the path of Stu" ?:| whatever they mean, and I have had negative comments towards me too (heaps from wtf, and 2 from other people).

> Lotsa guesses here, wee boy

> I agree that george12 seems to be taking after the footsteps of Stu, trying to do a lot of self-appointed moderating (you were known for that Stu, but me?

> Atleast the weekend is over, now hopefully ApenZ and George12 will be at school/pre-school or studying for exams and the number of dribble filled posts will decline

I just don't let them get to me. WTF has bits of usefulness and goodness poking through the wall of unkind sarcasm that defines his input to the forum, and although the advice he gives is sometimes useful, the tone of many of his posts gets to a lot of people.

Metla's OK though. He has been known to occasionally attack people, but is generally non-evil.

It's always sad to see our regulars go, but if you must then I am not to stop you.

BTW, did you ever get that Perl script going?

Excuse me, but I would disagree with that, strongly. Age is not everything. Do you think a 40 year old could pass the uni exam he sat when he was 20, for example? Yes, he may have experience, but nothing else. The world will forever be dominated and controlled by people in the 20s and 30s, for sure. That is known to be the highest points a persons life, physically and mentally.

Another example, excuse me metla for making myself seem like 'God', but I have been employed by one of (or maybe even THE) biggest fashion retailer in the whole of Australiasia. I went through a great deal of interviews and on-the-floor testing in front of many members of management to beat other uni graduates and men and women in their 30s, who have worked most of their working life in retail. While you may say the employers were insane in choosing me,.. I'm constantly getting phone calls of interview opportunities for further development. Heck knows how someof these businesses know my details, they range from Harvey Normans right down to your upmarket European suit maker.

Yet I'm only 15~! I can assure you that I'm earning more than many of you 'adults' out there. You claim you have life experience? bah! I'm sure I've through way more places on earth and faced more challenges than many of you guys out there staring into the screen. Mind you, I'm going to go find some clothes to wear to my next interview tomorrow...

Doing what? If you're 15 you can't (and shouldn't) legally be out of school.

> I went through a great deal of

Yeah I bet uni graduates were clamouring for a job selling clothes retail.

> While you may say the

Stupid claim. I'm earning more than many adults as well - they may work part time, lower paid jobs, different brackets, beneficiaries.

> You claim
> you have life experience? bah! I'm sure I've through
> way more places on earth and faced more challenges

Life experience is unbelievably valuable, your opinion of yourself is terrifyingly high and conceited. If you're 15, you'll be every other 15 year old kid who can't talk to girls and all the usual crap - get a grip.

> Mind you, I'm going to go find some clothes
> to wear to my next interview tomorrow...

If your job is so great and you're earning so much cash why are you bothering to look elsewhere?

A little bit of proof there would be helpfull as they control sfa. How many Presidents or Prime Ministers are in there 20's or 30's.

The thread seems to have gone a bit O/T on its O/T..

My tuppence worth
(No, not 2cents - 'cause I'm emphasising here that I'm pre-decimal) was to support Stu & say don't leave PF1..

Those of us who've been here for a while know that Stu's been here longer than his current info shows - so maybe the newkids should know that before joining in.

Can't help you when you get upset with the Olds here, Stu. You'll just have to stop being so sensitive.
The best remedy is to take several deep breaths.
Then go & find something else to do, reminding yourself it's only a computer forum & life has more important/interesting stuff.

(You might also console yourself with the fact that you have lots more life options now at 20 than your problem Olds have)

Believe it or not, some of the best students I've seen are mature students. They have more discipline when it comes to studying.

Giving up a job which might pay $40,000 + p.a. to go sit in a lecture is a big ask, and mature students willing to go through this are sure not going to spend their time at the various bars around Uni.

Hmmmm another moderator.

I can't see how this thread or the one you are referring to is going to help anybody with their PC problems.

The response (from Melta) to the Grammar thread was:

I suggest if "proper" English is of interest then you do your best to use it, and not try not to force your views on others.

This is fair enough in my book.

From what I have seen, 99% of Meltas posts (4000+?) have helped people with computer problems. It that not what we are here for?

Really? Fact or assumption?

I attended Massey Uni 3 years ago wt the age of 42 - was I really that disadvantaged?
