    I agree with OB.. in that thread. "As an assessor I would mark it as a law error if any referee gave the drop out, but in fact I have never seen it since the law change 40 years ago"


    and I agree with PhilE in that thread "Stop being a prat."
    The content of the discussion is irrelevant.

    It is without honour for one mod to hold the arms of a poster while another mod gets the cheap shot in. Disappointing. I would have hoped OB.. would delete his last post in a thread that another mod had clearly closed.

    The other way is to read the previous post that says THIS THREAD IS NOW CLOSED

    here we go again -- so - is the topic closed or not? Are we still discussing it ? or is it only open to mods ?
    will you re-open the thread, or should we continue here? if here, are non-mods allowed to post?

    I was unaware that the thread had been closed.That information only appears at the top of a page and I go straight to the next new post.
