No, he left some time ago :)

i made out in my last and only post that i did not know much

And very successfully too, if I may say so.  I for one am now completely convinced that you know sweet F-A, and are just another example of the twittering classes who love to pretend that they know far more than they do, then get riled when their bluff is called.

I am getting very tired of having to moderate what, so far, has been the third post of yours today to include a bad swear word or a thinly disguised version, which is just as bad. When you joined this forum you agreed to avoid the use of such words. Please cut it out. It's so unnecessary.

Thank you for illustrating any concerns members might have with your moderating :D
