Was my Dec 5 post considered out of order? I want to stay squeaky-clean,
but am often puzzled by the lack of response to what I consider a relevant
post. Educate me.

Hi Simon

Well, that's not a very friendly post :-)

As you've called me out as a Moderator, then perhaps I should do my job
and point out that these kind of completely off topic, entirely ad hominem
posts aren't really what we're after.  Seriously, if your concerns are
genuine, then don't bother the inbox of 600+ others with something that's
got nothing to do with the subject header or trees, and they're probably
not interested in.  If you think my efforts at humour to highlight
absurdity - in response to Julian's ridiculous numberwang that tried to
demonstrate the Tasmanian Government could save one negligence fatality a
year on the highway by spending £200K - are so offensive then report it to
the UKTC owner.  Other moderators are also available (this post aside, I
don't intervene on threads I'm involved in as a Moderator because I'm bound
to be biased).

For reasons of balance, you might also want to declare your own vested
interests here as a longstanding QTRA affiliate, and QTRA trainer.  Along
with the fact that you and Julian Morris are happy to disparage VALID as
'QTRA Lite', and talked up keeping QTRA 'ahead of the game' in light of my
work.  It's not the first time you've posted something like this since I
moved on, and people can then make their own minds as to whether all this
is part of that game.  I don't recollect you posting anything alleging that
I was unfriendly, offensive, not funny anymore, or product placement when I
was a leader of your tree risk tribe.

Cheers
