Hang on jackyboy , I thought you showed some restraint , and wondered why , in not reacting to the accusation at the time .Maybe , like me you didn't know what it meant .Why decide to go now ? It may appear to some that you are leaving because you have been rumbled and if you are not a what you were accsued of being stand up continue to post and it will become apparent that the accusation was unjustified and you may even get an apology .I must admit that ,after learning what a sock puppet was , I did consider it possible but don't any longer .Mud sticks but does wash off eventually .
Like Rhiannon and a few others, you are the voice of rationality Tiompan. I was determined not to add any more to this thread - its time it died away really, there is so much more to talk about. It is dispiriting to post in goodwill, as I did yesterday, only to have someone say to the person who answered me "I'll contact you off forum". Am left wondering whether my character is about to be besmirched.
There is a lot of talk about protecting ancient sites - perhaps human kindness is just as important.
