Hello Drobe, I make no apologies for this message - no comments in this comment (!) make reference to the orignal email, merely the way drobe staff used it.

How dare you treat someone making comments to you as such! I have a great deal of respect for drobe.co.uk - christ it's my damn homepage, but I really have to get on my soapbox over this article. Your rule on all emails being taken for publication is not clearly visible prior to posting, giving this young Axel fellow grounds for a libel case if he so chooses. If it were a message I sent you, I'd ram a libel case down your throat quicker than you could point out the grammatical errors in this posting!

Why on earth do some of your staff, who spend a good deal of their time producing excellent RISC OS software, feel the need to have a go at the little guy who writes you an email? The level of personal and abusive arrogance goes even beyond the level I am willing tolerate of Mr Naulls in this article - for christ sake get over yourself for once! Why not have a go at this chap for his bad English - bloody foreigner? That would be of the level of this article! If Drobe is going to lower itself to personal attacks on comentors, I would like to hope that the founders would say something against this practice.

Here you have someone who is obviously, to those of us who look at the meaning, as opposed the grammatical errors, slightly miffed at the way RISC OS market is being run - who amongst us isn't at the end of the day?

If this kind of article is going to be a standard fare of drobe from now on, can we have tools to moderate articles as well as comments?

You'll be glad to know I'm leaving the ol' soapbox now, you folks do as you please, you are (after all) only a website to me.

Regards, Ryan
