    Despite the sarcastic :rolleyes: I think that is a good question.

    I was going to find examples of the spirit of the forum where members have gone out of their way to help others. Threads where people have gone above and beyond to contribute to the forum and this community we have. Examples of people giving their time, energy and often spending their own money as a way of giving back to the club. I then came to the conclusion that this wouldn't be an adequate answer.

    I think MBClub should have an official definition of "spirit of the forum". A mission statement for want of a better phrase.

    I will start a thread on this very subject so we can all provide input to see if we can collectively come up with something really meaningful that answers this important question.

    I suspect that the 'spirit of the forum' will be like an English gentleman; you can't define one, but you know one when you meet one - and these days, more and more, you know who is not one...

    Good luck.

    Sometimes from the anger things inspire, it appears to be the aftermath of one too many vodkas or whiskeys...

    How about aspiring to good humoured, opinionated, informative, anarchy without any malice?

    Once again, in your rush of blood to your head, you are forgetting that I am merely responding to the below quoted post.



    If a poster wants to take pot shots at others, especially after writing inaccurate, long-winded blogs, they should expect incoming.
    As far as sticking to the forum mantra, I am probably one of the best members on here...or is the "New" mantra to write drivel as long as it gets one noticed and maybe a cap doffing audience?

    p.s. Isn't it time you put things right and lifted the ban you imposed on ***, who retaliated to bullying from several members?

    After the way he was treated, that's not really surprising is it?

    IIRC, weren't you one of the people attacking him in his absence? ;)

    That strikes a chord.

    Oh I think people have noticed.

    It is such a nicer vibe without the troublemakers.

    I did hear that he was recording a remix of Tramps & Thieves to add to his other greatest hit "Riding along in my automobile"

    Spite.

    Your issuing long term pathetic infractions get ever more petty. Arguing with the Admins..what a ridiculous reason.
    Definitely a toys out of the pram moment for you there.

    You may notice the plural is incorrect, it is only one Admin that incites such comment.

    Bullies on Internet...
    Reason: Arguing with Admins again
