There was a recent global announcement which some users maybe unable to access.

Here is the text.

Recently there has been a growning number of personal attacks upon other members within threads (ie. cyber thuggery). This forum is for the benefit of all, and this kind of anti-social behaviour is unacceptable. Moderators will be taking strong action against those who behave in this manner towards other members.

Members found behaving in this manner will have their account suspended for 7 days (no warnings will be issued), and repeat offenders will be permanently banned.

NOTE: Any member who opens a new account (to circumvent a suspension) will be permanently banned (without question).
