    I have used this forum for some time, so that is hardly 'barging-in' or had you not noticed?

    I had used it with the facilities available on it, to put two pictures with the text, and subsequently found they were NOT accessible without messing about.

    This has caused howls of indignation from Frank for doing something which seemed perfectly reasonable to me ...and with no explanation of why. That to me is pomposity. Perhaps not my place to say so - but there we go, that's me..... a bit pompous too I guess.

    He has now explained what his problem is with this - and fair enough we don't want to cause trouble with possible 'spam' problems with others, but an explanation in the first place would have helped. Being a rebel, I have never done anything in my life just because someone "says so" - I want a reasonable explanation first thank you.

    Your 'solution' (thank you for trying), is of no use whatever, the same problem is there. Then I get howls of indignation from you with my original protest. It was nothing to do with you - you don't pay for the site; Frank does. If there was any "barging-in" it was from you which only raised my hackles and made things worse. As for arrogant and self-centred attitudes I think you should look at your pots and kettles - they are very black.

    That is enough of the nonsense on this as far as I am concerned. Any more and I leave you to "your" introverted forum where I appear to be barging-in and intruding on your little fiefdom causing you distress.

    All I want is to be able to put pictures and files as necessary with the text for the enjoyment of all, without their having to become high level computer geeks to be able to open them. One click on the file link at the bottom if you please and the 'problem' goes away... everyone happy then! Is it too much to ask you wonderful computer savvy experts?

    I note Frank has said he pays for this site. Hence he has a right to place constraints. I would be willing to make contribution by Paypal if it is an onerous financial situation for him. It would be useful if everyone did that to relieve him of the burden, and would have the added benefit hence that perhaps I might then have the right to complain.
