My last post - cheers all

Just a little post. It's to wish you all the best but equally to say goodbye. Ten years plus of reading this board daily and sharing all things Williams.

Had a huge respect for PGJ and occasional poster Peter L. Loved going to Williams with Beatrix, and enjoyed meeting Gav at Silverstone this year. Had never spoken to an Iranian until Mehyrar who I like as well. Most of allAndrew who's been a constant. Sorry if I haven't named others.

Like many I am frustrated at the reinvention / reappearance of Whitey, equally gpl who I respect as a fan you don't help by calling him brain dead and could be a bit more sensitive to what is a medical condition. Many of us (me included) are not immune from stirring the pot / controversy but I have to say that Phatjack seems to take constant pleasure from taking an anti position to people.

Reality is this is no longer a fun forum for Williams enthusiasts but has become significantly disrupted by a few. Saying is a few bad apples spoils the barrel.

I am not getting pleasure any more from having to scan threads to spot good discussion from disruption, so time is right to move on.

So I hope the board continues. I agree with free speech, but if someone was this disruptive in class or parliament they would be removed and that is not barring free speech just simply having a behaviour standard.

All the best

Stuart

Hi mate.

Andrew should of nipped this in the bud a long time ago
But he seems very reluctant to ban this guy.

All i will say is stick with it next year could be big we are due a break
Paddy and his new team maybe Robert K and i am sure stroll can drive well
when you give him a car that can perform and not just make up the numbers.

But if you need a break away that is fine but if we get a good car next year
please come back mate.

Cheers

TMT - You can come over with million excuses, but the reality is that you are a sad thing. Thanks for your contribution in ruining this board. every thread is littered with your none sense. By the way - never mind to change your name you can post as Whitey.

What a disgrace.

If I leave will you stay Stuart? If it means you guys will stay if I leave I will just leave.

Without posters like Duffer, phatjack & myself this place would just be a big Williams love in.

Anyway I will leave, you stay Stuart & other posters that don't like me.

Bye (Sm150)

I first need to see Whitey leave before I believe it. But I agree upon Stuart's motivation. It has witheld me lately from being enthusiastic on the board as well and it caused me even becoming sour in some replies that didn't make any sense.
Hopefully you fare well Stu. Thanks for all the good times.

Stuart, I think over a few beers you would find we agree on many issues. Where we seem to disagree is however this, free speech to you means being politically correct whilst political incorrectness is not.

Best of luck to you mate. No harm, no foul!

@ Stuart l....I fully understand your decision. I too left this board for quite a long time for the exact same reasons. I have been posting here on and off for 12 years, ever since Webber joined in 2005 and i had followed Williams ever since the team was originally formed. This and a couple of other sportsnetwork boards were good but they were slowly strangled by consistent trolling and posters who were determined to vent their bile on a daily basis.Some still do!!!!

Take your time pal. You'll know soon enough if your decision was the right one.

Sadly phat there seems to be no free speech allowed on this message board if the die hard Williams fans have their way.

Yes...I've been posting here since 2008...not a lot in the recent years...but this looks very strange like a Red Bull forum and very strange comments, because there are not a lot of different teams forum all their "fans" came here and say what they want...

Sad to see another good one is leaving just as I don't see Crusty, PGJ, Steven or B and recently no news from Gunk and Fransesc too...I've been around here since 03 and we had tons of great posters comming in and leaving, but to see some run away because of trolls, it's another story...this is what will happen to the few who are left.hope Stuart will be back after a short break.

Bullsh1t, as a poster over at AA since 1999 this couldn't be further from the truth. Boards die because a differing opinion is not welcomed or people move on.

I do understand and can accept why posters may have stopped posting here but yet they post over at AA under the same guise.

For Stuart, my only regret was not meeting someone you did, yet you felt the need to poke fun at or as they say across the pond (in jest) because of sexual orientation and then have the nerve to applaud them here. I don't begrudge you but please don't pretend you are somewhat better than the rest of us. Because i'll be the first to call you or anyone on it.

Interestingly you are sticking to a forum which you label most posts as "Bull$hit" !
Serious mental illness...Makes me really ashamed to be 7.5 billion total population of the world with you.

No, I singled your post out as bullsh1t. It's a small world on the internet. though? Maybe we can come to some agreement, I accept what you post and in turn you accept what I write. sometimes we may agree other times maybe not so.

Stuart won't respond because I caught him with his pants down. I say that it in a nice way because from the day I came to this board, I thought he was larger than life. Surprise?

I like to exchange opinions with people like yourself Mehryar because it makes me a better person. I think at the end of day when you stop learning you start dieing. Anyone can run and hide.

Andrew I do apologize in advance.

the problem here is not differing opinions.... its trolling and littering with non sense comments. One has to shift pages of comments to spot a handful of worthy ones.

It is when you get to the forum and see every single topic last comment is by the same person and you know none of them will be sensible. Anyway hope you stick around - unlike Autosport this forum had a more active Williams section and more sensible / less fanboy discussions on the rest of what was happening in F1 - just needs less trolling.
