Thank you for this. The fact that I am concerned about long term resource depletion does not mean that I believe that a Lizard conspiracy runs the world.

I have just looked and there is no longer such a group. I don't know where the website has gone as it had some good information on it.

Both Johns on this forum are creepy but that's never been a reason for banning anyone from a site.

Having said that, an 'ignore' facility on PS would be very useful because they both spout tons of nonsense. I suppose upgrading the site will cost? It's a while since I contributed anything financial. If money is what's needed, I'll chip in; who else?

Not a bad description for the Kleptocracy that does run it at the moment. And if TPP and TTIP go through it will only get worse.

Of course. I can't see it being much, if a few dozen chip in.

Absolutely, there should be no question of banning John... and with 83% of vote you can chalk this down as one of your more successful results of late! Smile

Still would like to see the forum software upgraded though, so we don't have to read the noisome Johns (I know their posts can still appear if others quote them but).

How do we go about it? I'll contribute.
