Neil, like many who got the email I'm in the 'haven't a clue' camp. Obviously something has really upset you for you to send the email, so can you elaborate on what has caused this? The email gave me the impression that you were closing M&H but on this thread it seems that may not be the case, I hope it's not being closed as this site has always offered something different to the others.

I understand if you don't want to answer parts of this, but don't let the bastards grind you down

Well quite by chance i logged in here a few days ago, as ive not been on any forums much lately, all seemed fine.
Then today i recieved the email too, so i want to add my support with whatever has happened.

I know a few years ago Neil, you almost stopped the forum due to work load and not many people online, if i remember rightly.
All forums seemed to slow down once blogsites took off, but this time it appears to be a problem most of us know nothing about.

It was obvious to me from the first time i joined M+H, that your one of the most helpful and honest people in net land, so whatevers happened, i believe it must be important to make you feel like closing it.

As much as i would like the forum to stay opened, i dont want to ask of you to keep it running anymore, if you really do feel its time to quit.
As i say, many people dont even post on any forums so much now, so how can i ask you to keep the work load up for actually running a forum.
Plus as we now know, there appears to be other more serious reasons for your decision this time.

So, clearly you must do whats best for yourself Neil, and in some respects there is no right or wrong decision.

On another note, im looking forward to the new album too......

Also, sorry to hear about Mr P, Maxine.

Regards, newvox

All just goes to show being enigmatic after beers leads to general confusion! lol

Maxine so sorry to hear that Mr P is gone - I know he had a great home with you


Onwards and upwards...

I'm sorry if I slightly monopolised a bit of this thread about Mr P - but the thought of losing my favourite site as well as him was alot to bear (especially as I read it close to when he died)

Thanks to those who have posted condolence messages about Mr P; and I'm delighted that Neil has not closed this forum down.

It is now down to us, as Members, to keep it alive!

So what was the point of the thread and email? Neil, are you still a moderator on the official site?

Always strange to how people read a message and interpret it. I was telling someone what I was trying to get over, and when they understood, they got it and laughed out ... lets say very loud

With some luck!! Its not often that I am cryptic, but I think that the penny may sink in with my "message"

I think I understand you extremely well Neil
I think that it has taken a few months, for those that have the drift of things to see what has been going on. We will now have a rather uplifting 12 or so months...

After that.. well ...... That's going to be a rather large portion of "That's the way the mop flops"

I don't come on here much these days (for various reasons) so i'm not aware of the politics Neil ... but ... what i would say is that if you've got the time, passion and resources then please keep it going - in my early days of internet this was one of the first places i headed to and made loads of friends through it at a time when OMD, were well and truly in the wilderness.

An alternative voice from the "official forum" is needed more now then ever ... (imo) I don't mean anything underhand by that statement btw.

Take care all and promise to choon in more often, i think you should even reinstate the Sunday evening chat room!!

P x

ps remember the SMBW forum you ran too
