    One has to feel a bit sorry for people, who never have anything of much
    interest to contribute to the issue in hand. But are always handy with petty
    criticisms and then 'get-off' on being rude. I would say 'time-wasters' if I
    wasn't more polite. Yes you know who you are.

    Well it's a direct result of the crossposting, in two ways. 1. The
    more groups you post to, the greater the chance that someone will get
    pissed off by it, and 2. Posting to UKRM will always meet with an
    offensive reply - it's what we do, and we're pretty damned good at it.
    Anyone who doesn't know that already better learn PDQ.

    Why don't you just post everything you want to every group out there,
    in case it interests someone who happens by? It's obviously a much
    better approach than posting e.g. consumer rights issues only to legal
    and consumer groups.
    Standard netiquette - a simple guide to social behaviour on the
    Internet. It's probably enshrined in a RFD somewhere.

    David thanks. that's just the kind of 'insight' that is most helpful.

    I still cannot see the problem with posting to 6 groups. It is relevant to
    all these groups in one way or another. Most people know of stuff that
    breaks down far too soon, so could be helpful.

    Also the wider the audience (ie the more groups) the more likely some good
    ideas are likely to spring up.

    Apart from making the grumpy even more grumpy, can you say what the issue
    is?

  6. John,

    I have no problem with it, it's just considered a breach of netiquette
    and you are likely to get flamed.

    That's less common nowadays. But I didn't see the original post because
    I have a kill rule that shuts out anything crossposted to more than
    three groups. I have it because virtually everything crossposted to
    more than a couple of groups is spam.

  8. Yes - there you are, another reason for not doing it!

    The defendant could always apply to have the case moved to his local
    court, but now it's done automatically, so you;d have to travel if they
    defend.

  10. AIUI, the case will only be automatically moved to the court of the
    defendant's residence if the defendant is an individual. Otherwise, it
    is open to the defendant to ask for it to be moved. My understanding of
    previous procedure is that this would not be done where a consumer is
    making a claim against a business. The position now seems to have been
    made less clear, but that's how it was last time I did it (early 2000s).
