Unfortunately i have not had time to read this string until now as many of you know i have been somewhat preoccupied with the death of my mother.
I will try and answer some of the comments without getting personal, you all know who I am and if you wish to address me to my face you can, I never hide. unfortunately in this area and I suspect many others, there are a small number of people who have little else to do but criticise others, they always know best - try getting off you butts and doing it then!
Another point is quite simple if you all care to submit your real names, NIE, address etc
I will gladly give you complete freedom of speech on these boards, but most of you don't have to balls for that do you? You want to hide behind your web names.
If you want to contribute then fine that would be cool as dolly suggested.
This site was set up originally to help promote this area and the business in it, not to bring it down, we live in one of the best places in the world the climate is wonderful and diversity of culture fantastic. like all places in the world it has its issues paperwork etc but there are many people who can help with this like Di who originally set up this site with me.
So let me put it simply for you if you want total freedome of speech let me know all your details, post under your real name so everyone else knows who you are - then no problem.
You want to contribute brilliant I would welcome it so lets have your contributions to the office in Los Gigantes
Incidentally this site ranks number one on all of the major search engines so we must be doing something right.
