Spiderman, looks like your comment has fell on death ears. Once BA bashing enters a topic there is no stopping it, it comes under its own rule. Would have thought that the original poster would have stepped in as he doesn’t like posts to go off topic.

Bella, I thought it was polite to answer a member's question. Your post didn't exactly help the discussion on the original topic. But, hey ho, let's get back on topic, shall we, if you have any pertinent comment to make.

Been hit by another boat? Report the incident to the Marine Accident Investigation Branch’s dedicated accident reporting line on 023 8023 2527 which is monitored 24 hours a day.  Help to make the Broads safer.

Paladine, I thought that it was polite to answer a Members question.
I thought that I had helped the discussion by answering spiderman’s Question. But, hey ho, lets get back on topic, shall we, unless you have any more impertinent comments to make.

Paladine, I wholeheartedly respect you and read and appreciate all the knowledge that you bring to this forum but when there is a chance within a discussion it is changed to BA Bashing and in my opinion it seems the same old gripes, again and again.
I know it’s not always you who starts it but I think that many of the BA
bashers look up to you as their leader.

Steve had asked earlier in the discussion that it was kept on topic.

BA bashing is relentless. It seems to invade every topic. I have been on the rivers and its broads for many years. All those years ago it was good. It still is good.

No organisation is perfect. I have worked for several private company's some, if not most, the most dysfunctional lot you have come across.

The BA has maintained the Broads as it was years ago, in my mind quite an achievement.

There are those who wish to change this quango to an elected body. Or indeed to a different organisation.

However I cannot support you. My mind is not clear exactly that which you would choose.

I cannot find, have not found, within your destructive critisicm a positive conclusion ever!

I'll honour your request Steve but it sails in the face of a long rich history of threads going off topic on this forum, one that has been indulged and even contributed to by the Mod team. A sad day IMHO.

A sad day, TT? Perhaps, but it pales into insignificance when compared to the obvious trauma the owners of the boat that was senselessly vandalised by a moronic individual (or individuals) must have suffered. Bad enough that the boat was deliberately damaged, but that it was done while the owners were asleep on board...

(Sorry, I seem to have returned to the topic  Smile  )

Absolutely agree Pally, my heart goes out to the owners, we don't know the full story but as a specific boat has been targeted and others there at the time not, I would suggest that someone has a beef with that particular person. Now nothing justifies criminal damage but there are usually 2 sides to every story (well 3 if you consider the truth to be a side) I would like to hear the story behind it and keeping posts front and centre may actually lead to someone coming forward with information that leads to the truth and the culprit.
Without being able to judge or take sides on the potential causes it's hard to see any further comments being made on this thread and it will quickly disappear off the screen and out of peoples thoughts. At least by letting the thread drift to a wider discussion area it would keep it on the front page and as the Mods justification was to keep the topic fresh in peoples minds it seems perverse to stifle the thread in this way. As I say if you look back over the years threads have drifted over a number of subjects many totally unrelated to the OP, that was what the forum was all about.

Whilst I can not agree with Flonker I certainly can with both Dave's and Paladine's recent postings. I don't suppose that we shall ever know the answer but I do wonder what could possibly have induced such inexcusable behaviour.

Re us BA Bashers, no such thing back in the days of Prof. Aitken Clark, Dr Packman's predecessor. Draw your own conclusions on that one. I do wonder what the Broads of today would be like if there were no 'bashers', if Dr Packman had been entirely free to implement his vision and subsequently gain the total control that he clearly aspired to. What if the Broads Bill had passed through Parliament without opposition, and the Broads had actually become a national park complete with Sandford? Thank goodness for 'bashers'.
