I'm afraid I can't grasp the point you seem to be striving to make.

I'm not trying to shove you in any corners. You misunderstand.

Nigel, Percy, valued contributors of common sense, our short burst comments, similar to Phone Texts too

Are often, written quickly, and can be read with more than one meaning.

I often read my own and can see clearly how I was misunderstood

We do our best, helping out

i'm in agreement with Denis.a lot of the time I think that written comments mean different things to different people,i also would say that this forum is also part of todays social media...as well as modelling,a lot of other topics get discussed....and as such we need the mods who attempt to remain impartial to our printed thoughts which sometimes do get out of hand(human nature)…………… my wife likes to have the last word,the first word and most of the one's in the middle...the common ground is we are all interested in model aircraft....and RCME does have a Facebook site/twitter site etc....good on them....

Ken, re your lovely wife, have you tried words like "fish slice" and other similarly "slender" words.

I find this works well at Dibley Towers, when trying to get into the conversation. laugh

Personally, I avoid facebook like the plague, My girls (14 and 15) are allowed to use instagram and whatsapp, and interact with friends on the Xbox. They do not use Facebook, and their school discourages it.

If you use social media a lot, just be careful.

This forum is great, you can have a bit of fun, meet great like minded people, and learn a lot at the same time

D.D.

agree with all of that chaps

re: the social media thing in general, lots of studies done which show a sensible amount of use, hour a day or thereabouts, is somewhat beneficial to your wellbeing - the first things you do on it, you keep in touch with your mates, be they local and physical or forum based (hello you lot!), you get the good stuff done quickly.

if you stay too long, the media starts being your entire life and while it ain't really real, the more time on it the less that's remembered, and things can go south pretty quickly, with more susceptibility to the nastiness that can come out of it, and life becoming an endless series of moves to polish that public image, etc etc. The aspects that go down the line of trying to present a perfect image are a road to nowhere.

The big supermarkets have the mag - Sainsbury's certainly does, try one of those.

I dont do facebook, twitter wattsapp etc, but I do enjoy this forum if this is classed as social media. The problem is that now everyone assumes that you are on facebook. "catch up with us on facebook" or " follow us on facebook" seem to be most companies watchword. The club to which I belong stopped its website and now everything goes on to facebook. I find the whole thing rather annoying.

There are lots of special interest groups on Face book which I find very interesting.

One of these being unofficial BMFA face book group, which is of great value to any model flyer.

The unofficial tag separates the site from the BMFA face book page, which is less wide ranging.

Not forgetting also Large Model Group face book page.

And me Don!

This is definitely my preferred forum. Over many years I have learnt an inordinate amount. Recently, I have started to dabble in the world of converting IC to electric. Its still a bit of a mystery, but without the help from people on this forum I would have been snookered. Okay, occasionally a post pops up that is condescending / showing off / provocative etc. but I just scroll past to the more meaningful replies which are in the majority. Same with Facebook, which I really only use for keeping in touch with old Army mates from 25 years ago. Very interesting reading!.
