Same here Sherro.  Wink

I was absolutely shocked as well when I read of the passing of John Leah in ASP.

I was, still am and always will. However I will not be bullied by the likes of cuzzie. Opened his mouth and a bad attitude came out without making sure of his facts first

On one other matter, this is not 'an Australian site'. That is close to showing an anti-social attitude towards anyone not Autralian. This site was designed to be open to all hence there are members from many other countries. Included was the belief [[highlight]/highlight]that free speech is a fundamental right.

And I thought I was exercising my own right to free speech when I first posted.
"This must be opposed and the best way to do that is to continue." Quote

Talk about making a mountain out of a molehill! Who is the bully here.

There must be something wrong with my modem. I'm not getting any posts through from the many members outside Australia. And I did say "mostly an Australian site"
There always seems to be a band of people in the world that champion free speech but only if it doesn't disagree with their views. Therein lays one of the big problems of the world today.

In any case 3 old Australian members have managed to post something, so that's a start.
Happy 8th Anniversary GOMC, I hope there will be a 9th.
I too had an anniversary - my 81st. Birthday

Prayers and best wishes to all

Cuzzie, let me take this apart so you understand where you have gone wrong.

You are entitled to free speech and that is why you have been allowed to post up your opinion. However you have crossed the boundary bewteen giving an opinion and trying to make somebody leave the site.

Why don't you use 'Facebook' or other public medium to talk about your woes and leave this site to get back to the interests of stamp collectors.

That is trying to be a bully, you are trying to deny me my right to free speech.

"you seem to have taken it over with posts of little interest to real philatelist" "Anyone have anything philatelic to discuss"

That is an opinion and just to let you know again that opinion puts you in a minority when compared with the number of views my posts have generated

"I've logged on here every few weeks for the past year and found it totally boring", "sick of this site just as I am "

Seems to me the problem is as you admit with you.

Now mountain out a molehill hunh, you keep coming back with posts intended to generate a reaction, pehaps you hould apologise for such rudeness.

Been a while since I checked in and am sad to hear of John Leah's passing.

Also just learnt of the sad passing of one of the original GOMC's at the other site, Harry Bazelmans, aka Old Harry, The Silver Fox.

I never met the man, however it is said he was a true gentleman and a great loss to philately, especially in the cinderella world.

RIP Harry  Sad

Now all we need is for others here to start acting like gentlemen and lets all try to get this site back to where it belongs, friendly and thriving. Angry

That's very sad news. I had the pleasure of meeting Harry on quite a few occasions. If you asked him a question about an obscure cinderella, he'd pull out a sheet of them, and tell you who printed them, how many were printed, and what the printer's apprentice had for lunch. An absolute fountain of knowledge who, as far as I know, never touched a computer.

I'm pretty sure that the founders of the Croydon GOMC are all gone now.  Cry

I never met him, but did benefit from his knowledge, a great loss.

Yesterday there was a quiet little auction locally and for a change all the regulars turned up with only a couple of new faces. All in all a rather pleasent morning and I came away with a couple of mixed lots to occupy me for five minutes.

Be well all Smiley
