Some other forums have similar clashes. Some do not and ideas are discussed by professionals and amateurs alike. The difference being the polite forums are mostly membership by invitation and may involve an annual subscription.
I wouldn’t attempt to tell someone which classic car is best or give advice as to how to repair one.Maybe, but not always the case. I am a member of multiple forums on multiple subjects. Some forums just seem to attract problems, trouble causers and people who want to tell everyone just how clever they are at the expense of another poster. I belong to a specialised car forum, which is a mix of highly skilled experts and absolute amateurs without a clue, partly, but not restricted to subscribing members. It work worderfully well, rarely a cross word, lots of help from everyone experts and complete amateurs alike. Any attempt at nastiness is stamped on quickly by the mods.
or are you suggesting that a know nowt can be gassafe registered...... I sincerely hope not.
I think you might be surprised at just how thick some of them can be
Not rocket science, as you should know because no doubt you will have worked as a rocket scientist in the 70s, the reason it is a closed forum is to allow qualified engineers to discuss technical issues, the reason this forum must be closed is SOME people will read what they want to see in posts and then start telling the unqualified how to work on Gas appliances, and if you think that for 1 second that engineers get it easy in that forum think again, there is a goldmine of knowledge in there and if anyone like you thinks that going in there and spouting your rubbish gets it easy, you couldnt be more wrong , they get jumped on from a great height and told in no uncertain terms to learn properlywhich makes one wonder why there is a section to which DIYers have no access.
because no doubt you will have worked as a rocket scientist in the 70s,
Nothing would surprise me today. Same in the electrical / electronic trades. Trained moneys who sometimes forget the training they were given. ( assuming they were paying attention during the training course, even then they can get an attendance certificate which means nothing )
