I felt that it was best to remove this forum, and any threads which dealt with personal attacks on me and my response to them, while moving any technical discussion threads to more appropriate forums. It was never my intention to carry out slanging-matches on this forum when it was created, but I didn't anticipate the venom of some persistent individuals. Since a number of Photoclubalpha forum members have begun to defuse or negate some of these attacks, contacting me to alert me and get a response, it's no longer necessary for me to over-react in this space. Thanks to all involved!\
Any threads of genuine value to visitors to this site have been moved to pastures new.
