    You think you can speak for 99% of people?
    You can't speak for me, list 99 members of this forum happy for you to represent them and I'll list another that you can't - let's see who runs out of names first? Good game?

    How is my family rich?? I just told you they were not. My old man gave up work due to stress at 50 odd and lives off a pension :|

    And frankly, any b2b business person is going to know several people that meet your criteria. Probably half the people on this forum deal with other businesses and are highly likely to know more than 3 people earning at that sort of level.

    Anyhoo, Movietub, I forgot you have a great big tank of water. I thought you sold old films cheap like the tub of rubbish videos you used to get in woolworths. ;)

    Funny how you missread people's forum names.

    Funnily enough, my second business venture was buying cheap VHS collections at car boot sales and reselling them to a merket stall trader :)


    But times change, I perfer the tank now. Trust me, it's an easier way to make money.

    Yep, the meercats went on to do pretty well, it was one of my better ideas.

    But I'm too modest to go on about such things. Good luck to them, thats all I can say.

    Yeah it's mostly friendly, we have the odd humourless swine, but I have to admit I'm missing our banned friend Sax already. He might have been blunt, but gagging someone's opinion is never conducive to open debate.

    Hell but that's the British way these days!

    Me and the missus banned friend sex too. I miss it, but I don't miss all the visits to the GP for ointment.

    For being his usual blunt self and someone took it personally and reported him.

    "if you can't take the heat stay out of the kitchen" but don't get someone banned because you can't handle it.

    Shame....

    I must add, that this forum is quite 'Bit**y' if I can put it that way.

    I am a member of a few forums (under relevant names obviously), and a forum advisor on a couple of others (made forum advisor ofter 5000+ sensible posts!).

    I do find that posts can go off topic quite a bit on here - I know this is now off-topic but the thread has already lost its original intention.

    If you're trying to develop a web based business but don't have the basic understanding of how an online forum works, I don't give you much hope.
