Who pulled the plug on the EDP forums?

I used to go on the EDP forums.Not widely used but some of the comments were quite clever,some made you laugh and there was always someone to disagree with if you fancied an argument.
Now its vanished.
Did it get too much for Archant,or did some of the posts go over the top?.
Who knows?.

Hooray and up she rises.

Another day on the sun rise coast.Its peeing down with rain and the bascule bridge has gone up to let some old duffer in a dinghy about the size of a coal scuttle splutter and fart his way back to his moorings.The 'intelligent' traffic lights are on red where you can go and green where you can't,tempers are getting frayed and I'm getting cold stood in the doorway taking pictures.
I'm going back in the warm.

For a good many years I've sold a lot of tools especially the older imperial based one on Ebay but the fees are climbing ever higher and it seems a lot of buyers have gone on to other auction sites.I'm going to try Ebid,the fees make more sense anyway.
Come and have a look,see what you think.
Ebay might still be the place to buy with its huge customer base,especially for the stuff I like to buy,classic car parts,old tools and that sort of thing but selling,as a business,is just too expensive.
