There are many people on here (including myself) who have voiced their opinions
on contesting. I won't drag it all out again, but I think it may be 'time of the

As I said - always sad to see somebody go. But at the end of the day - a forum
like this is for people to voice their own opinions. Sometimes you can get 'You
are entitled to your opinion even though it's wrong' postings, but like I say -
this is where you can say what you want.
Thanks Nigel - still doing a fine job. One of those jobs that nobody else wants.
