    You're welcome to your opinion, Bazza. I provided the proof of racism being posted on DIYnot, it's still there. You should look it up to verify your statement.
    There is, as far as I am aware no racism on this forum, when it appears it is deleted, as the recent deleted video exemplifies.

    I made my comments about why I switched from DIYnot to this forum.
    I don't want to get into another discussion in this thread about racism on DIYnot. I'm happy to discuss it, just not in this thread. So if you want to start another, I'll contribute in that thread.

    I seem to remember saying I was a gog (It comes from the word 'gogledd', which means 'north' in Welsh, and is usually said with a hint of 'otherness.) on DIYnot, but unless I tell some one I am a gog, how would they know and be able to make any racialist comment? And I see nothing wrong with declaring race or creed, but why would you, no one knows unless you say, so if I don't want to be called a gog, it's simple, I don't tell anyone, however I am proud to be a gog.

    As a new user I joined looking to learn proper ways to do some things, and must admit I've been shocked by some of the threads and the antagonistic way that 'someone' tries to rile others, and won't let things go. It doesn't take away the enjoyment of reading through things, but I've made my mind up who's advice I'll take on board ... and there's a wealth of wisdom here to tap into, which I hope all new users are grateful for

    My best mate is ... doesn't stop us arguing which is best ... Mid v North. We just agree that it's great we're not souff Walians ( My daughter works in Barry lives in Cardiff, so that's very tongue in cheek)
    As someone said when I was watching Wales play ... the Welsh haven't got time to be racist ... they're too busy hating each other :)

    @bobbydazzler. I dislike people who come on a forum complaining of racism. Its an ugly word and quite frankly your thread when you came on ranting about racism was ugly reading. If all your interested in, and it seems it is, is racism and alleged racism and referring to racism, I cannot support your presence on this forum or anywhere else. It stinks. People are being accused of being racist without a thread of factual evidence. Please take your opinion elsewhere if you keep bringing up racism. You won't get any support from me. People like you look for racism, bring racism in to a thread, mix it up and create anger and then go off on a self-opinionated rant about it.

    My apologies Comlec. I genuinely only mentioned racism to explain why I switched to this forum from DIYnot.
    I also said I didn't want to discuss racism in this thread because it would be off-topic.
    Now if those who insist on discussing racism, would please start another dedicated thread. I'll be happy to respond. Then I can point out the evidence that others deny exists.
    Unless Comlec gives his/her permission, I'll not respond to anymore arguments about racism in this thread, but I will happily respond in another thread.

    This is NOT a forum for discussing racism. Who would even want to discuss it? Please take your racism topic to another place on the internet not anywhere on here. Thank you.

    WTF???
    How has this thread ended up discussing racism?
    You all had too much time on your hands?

    I fully agree that this is not a thread for discussing racism, and as I have also said, I'm happy to respond if anyone wants to start such a thread.

    The thread has ended up about racism because some insist on giving their opinion.
    I first mentioned it as a way to explain why I switched from DIYnot to here. Since then others have insisted on making their opinions heard on this thread.

    The person who mentioned raciscm was you!

    This is an electricians forum. Please move your discussion to a more appropriate forum.

    I said it was me!
    I also explained why I first mentioned it, purely as a 'by the way' and as an explanation why I switched to this forum from DIYnot.
    I then continued to give an opinion about the subject matter, and how I hoped to find a more mature group.

    It is only the continued opinions of others that prevents the subject of racism from fading to obscurity in this thread.

    I've said numerous times, I will not mention it again, in this thread. If only others can let it rest.
    I have also apologised to the OP for the distraction.

    I will repeat: I'm happy to discuss racism, just not in this thread.

    Waste of time this thread. Forum admin haven't responded.

    Didn't expect them to. Same with posting inaccurate or dangerous advice.

    However say a naughty word or call somebody a nasty name and they are all over it shouting at you and threatening bans. That was why I left for 12 months, too one sided.

    Yeah I left for quite a long time and it did me good. I was getting too wound up with the petty argumentative types. I found it theraputic to have a long break. I've found the ignore button helpful and I am strict with it. No peeping at ignored posts.

    I think their answer was take the forum down for a week and make the sparkies suffer.

    They binned off that argumentative "mediator" who ever he was. I think it was either lucia or lee again.
