Is there nobody on this list that remembers the discussions that was engendered when Sylvan etc were allowed to post.
My point is that to raise the profile of Plumbers they must be allowed to discuss contentious issues.
To get Concensus there must be the for & agin. this discussion process will be fraught with danger & it is the Moderator that must moderate but not destroy free speech.
Mr Sylvan may have been abrasive to the point of insulting but he only picked on non proffessionals who didnt raise the profile of the industry.
We now have both non proffessionals & proffessionals giving advice to DIY leypeople.
It is my oppinion that the Moderator should delete any post that gives technical advice.
