I`ve been singing the praises of this forum and it`s owner and moderator, Gary since 2004, and I`ve had to put up with a lot of shit and sly innuendos because of it, and yes it will be a sad day for many people if it closes, including myself.
Despite crowing from other forums, this was and still is the best forum on the Costa Blanca. Other expat forums have always looked at us with a grudging envy and of course some are populated by members who have been given a swift kick up the jacksie from here, but still clamour to get back on, only to get another swift kick back off again.
The reason it`s been a success is because of you guys and of course the fair and robust moderation by Gary.
Unfortunately politics has ruined a once great forum, something I know you`ll agree on, and maybe if Gary had shoved anything remotely political in the proper section then things would have been better. I think they would have.
You only have to read the comments by Old Boy, Kinchy, Burrababa and many more to see how gifted this forum is with intelligent, articulate contributors....It`s noticeable that they mainly seem to be right wing.... Well there you go, politics raises it`s ugly head once again.
Under various guises, this forum has been part of my life for thirteen years. I`ve found and lost friendships. I`ve had extensions built, satellite systems installed, swimming pools installed, walls built , gardens landscaped, carpets fitted...the list is endless, as I`m sure it is for a lot of you guys.
So fingers crossed. x
