Sad that Tom has had to make this point.
Like others in this thread, I have gained much information from the forum, enjoyed some good exchanges, and thus far have had only pleasant experiences here.
Regarding tiggerbrown’s suggestion about public profiles, don’t forget that some regular posters work in the travel business, and therefore have to remain anonymous. This does not in any way take from the value of their insight and comments.
Maybe at some future point those who have left the forum might return and share their knowledge and ideas with us again.
