I started my working life as a Production Engineer, then a Project Planning Engineer, then a Project Manager (both the last 2 on some of the largest projects in the UK). In 1992 I but that behind because of all the politics, infighting, oneupmanship, and timewasting that goes on and bought some land with planning permission, built my house and started 'farming', as working with so called dumb animals in my view was better than working with some types of humans. I am saying this as one who is not an 'intellectual' a 'high flier' etc just a normal human being who wants to get on with their life.
This is the first forum I have used to its full extent, even now, nor will I ever probably, fully understand all the technicalities of our situation. What I do find hard to understand is there are those on this site who believe themselves to be 'intellectual' but in fact do not have the basic manners of humanity to respect others and how they affect others. I am lucky in that I have an unlimited broadband connection, but for those users having to use 'dial up' or can only go to an internet cafe searching for factual news, in some distant land with intermittent connections (ie in both cases they have to pay over the odds for access to this site) they along with myself would greatly appreciate not having to wade through hundreds of posts/comments/replies from so called intellectuals or men of letters that have nothing better to do than have a schoolboy playground slanging match.
I am doing what I can within this site to help others and myself, I now spend 10-12 hours each day at my computer. Personally I would prefer to spend it with my partner, who has developed a minor heart defect and will need surgery soon to rectify it. This medical situation puts everything into perspective for me, perhaps others should check out their own perpective.

I've spent hours so far going through "flagged" posts and reconfiguring that part of the system so as to make it easier and quicker to use for moderators.

Also wondering whether I need to edit the "Age distribution" poll to include an "under 5" option.

Do we have nothing better to do?

Note: If you Flag comments as offensive then you will need to fill in the response box as to 'why' you feel they are offensive, so that the moderator can understand more clearly the 'offence'

Please also remember that new members to this site will be reading your 'comments', and what they read, sets the tone for them to 'understand' the quality of all the registered users of this site.

Thank you all for you help
