Blimey I recently posted for the first time on a thread re: Magadalen. On returning from hols I picked up the responses of those that think that if you make positive comments about a new resto on your first post it must be suspicious!

Can we discuss this? should this not be a site for the whole of the SE1 community and not for a regulars in an exclusive SE1 club.

I understand that some people take advantage of this but surely, its better to let them get away with it (its usually obvious they are up to something anyway)then to put others off joining in the debate.

Agreed. There is nothing wrong with recommending somewhere or something that you like and, in fact, I can understand why this would be the first thing people would contribute to the board.

This web site is for everybodyin SE1 so don't let the vociferous minority put you off.

Oh, and Welcome!

@ PKM - don't worry about it, it was probably a misunderstanding, please stay and reply to more threads - i'm sure you'll get to love the site, like so many others do.

welcome to the forum

Thanks all. I have been reading the forum for sometime now - just never got round to logging on. Look forward to offering my views in the future.

Welcome, PKM, and I do hope that you will contribute to the forum in the future.

If people have suspicions about whether a message/recommendation on the forum is genuine or not, I'd prefer that they use the 'Report this message' link to flag it up for my attention rather than challenging the poster directly.

That said, it is a sad fact that many businesses seem to feel the need to be dishonest and underhand in their marketing tactics, so it is little wonder that people have become cynical.
