I have mentioned this annoyance in other threads so am starting a new one on solely it hoping that the moderators of Punternet may read it and give Gallahad a friendly nudge to change things.
You don't change AnthG, do you? As well as giving Pro$$iefanmailnet a 'friendly nudge' (as if they are even mildly
interested in any friendly overtures from the good UnitedKuntPlayers) how about similar appeals. James' current 10p drive makes me think of giving BandAid a friendly nudge to stop giving corrupt African leaders money. Or Assad a friendly nudge to stop killing people.
The fact is, all this 'helping people' crap is a mental band-aid to let you ignore reality. People die, corruption exists, and Prossienet doesn't give a damn about anything other than money. But if you 'do-your-bit' - whether by sending ten pence to Oxfam or starting a thread to make Prossienet better, you can then dismiss the 'problem' in the belief that you have 'done something.'
Sorry mate. You're a nice bloke and all that.
But the idea's crap.
