After years o boating I am now looking at buying a Caravan.
I noticed on another Caravan/Motorhome forum that a forum member made a comment about "bad service" from a well known Caravan Dealer and was told off bu the forum management as they have rules against people complaining on the forum.
The boat forum I am used to (Practical Boat Owner) allows boat owners to say if they have had poor service from a boatyard or after ordering something it took weeks to arrive. To me this is what a forum is all about.
I would be grateful for advice as to whether this forum has restrictions.
Thanks.

Yes if you read the sticky on forum etiquette you will get the information on how this Forum conducts its business. But basically naming and shaming isn’t allowed. Have a look under Our Website. The section on etiquette is in yellow near the top.

There there, dry those tears :lol:
The green moddying crayon only makes an appearance to prevent my forum friends from hurting themselves when they stray from the straight and sunny pathway that is set out in forum etiquette to stumble over the rocky downward path, where the cries of the errant forumites go unheard when the Delete button is pressed. :)
