In order not to interfere with Matt Corkers plea for Technical assistance on his ‘What’s wrong with FM’ thread, I’ll start a new one.
It seems a number of members have got it into their heads that some of us who have contributed articles to in the past have spat our dummies out with regard to the current lack of leadership situation that we are faced with on FM.
Although I haven’t conferred with Mark Wintle at all on this, I hope we are both on the same page. Between us we have contributed well over 400 articles for FM during the past six or so years. We have done so because we wanted to, not because we felt had to, or because we got any reward for doing so.
