    I caught this late, and it is troubling. We are most of us on in years, and we do what we do (model boats) because we are all still really kids at heart. I love that, but please enjoy it without the childish behaviour. Respect, integrity and trust should be quite well fully cooked into us by now. Unfortunately there are bad apples and social media seems to bring them to the fore. Martin & Bill volunteered to moderate and did a fine job. Unfortunately, these days you need a moderator to keep the crap from hitting the page. As they say the best skippers are always standing on the shore (and usually are the most vocal).

    Think this subject should be changed to "END OF AN ERA"

    Thanks for everything Martin. You will be greatly missed. It was a few like minded people that made this site what it is today. Your departure, and that of two others I know of, will be felt in the content and enjoyment.
    I know we will talk again so good luck with all that you do.
    Peter.

    I cannot promise to finish one project before starting another. I know, I tried.

    Dear Stephen. Following the removal of the moderators, I find it difficult to understand why you didn't remove the guilty party from the site when the problem was brought to your attention.
    One of the most influential members (Martin555) has now decided to leave because of this, I believe that he should get a full public apology from the miscreant and also the site.
    Failing this I also will be leaving as I believe in fair treatment of all the members.
    Cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    Ladies and Gentlemen.
    Regrettably I advise you that Martin 555 has at his own request left the site for good.
    This is for the reasons that are I feel quite obvious over the last few weeks.
    It is a great loss to each and everyone of us who have enjoyed and learnt from his knowledge,expertise and sense of humour.
    His decision to go is a direct result of one individual and the problems he has caused.
    I will now be reconsidering my desire to stay here as well.
    I trust this post is not removed or edited as I do not feel it is contentious in any way.
    Thank you again Martin for all you have done.
    Regards Bill.

    I suspect there are other reasons Bill.
    Should you both be reinstated I might reconsider but much has happened since so I cannot do a catch-up.
