......Now though there seem to be folks who've never posted on here, not introduced themselves, no effort whatsoever. They might have read a few threads and know that 'there are no rules' but does that make it okay for your first post (or near enough) being "Kit please"? I don't think so - and that's without considering the element of inconvenience and financial risk undertaken by those generous enough to volunteer their time and money on orders.
...There was a post on FB recently from someone who said they had no intention of posting on the forum. Not sure how tongue in cheek that post was. Personally that rubs me up the wrong way. The forum is the home of the pirate and I don't think people should post their queries on FB, they should be here.
Another +1 from me
When I first started posting in the Tri section, there appeared to be a 'collective respect' for the way things were done (maybe because it was a smaller group?). Now, IMHO, PSOF is too big and therefore too diverse.
I don't think the FB helps. How can you have something like the IMFrance thread, sock thread etc on FB. These are the sort of threads were you get to know people. FB is great for one-off queries, but it ain't gonna get you that involved in PSOF
