    A bit like here then. Or exactly like here.
    I'm on both. There's a decent mix on both. The password thing I had from a work site exactly the same as you describe. Changed it, then back and nothing. Odd indeed.

    Everything here x1000.  
    I join in on both (moreso here because I've got pages of my own thread) and there are decent folk there and twats here, just as there are twats there and decent folk here.  It's almost like it's representative of life.  There are nice people everywhere, and there's a twat born every minute.  I miss a few of the old faces from the old days but most of them are over there, one or two on PH and sadly, in the case of @Junkman,MIA.  I hope he's well - perhaps @Conrad D. Conelradcould pass on my regards.
    I keep putting off resetting a load of my old passwords even though Chrome repeatedly shouts at me to do so.  I might make that a project for later on.

    The people I think of as nasty, spamming or trolls are invariably ignored on here, either the magic button or just scroll past. Likewise there are more than likely people on here who think I'm a bit of a twunt.
    Thankfully I've switched on the random password generator on my MacBook and the issues appear to have gone away, so if the data leak comes back I'll close my account on the affected site(s). I noticed though they only appeared after I signed in on my work laptop on Saturday.

    That doesn't mean the site has been compromised. It means you have reused the password too much and another site you've used it on has been compromised. It'd probably be worth investigating using a password manager and unique passwords for each site.

    @andyberg not aiming at anybody in general, just frustrated at the world and the direction the forum is being controlled onto.

    Wow.  You've got that every kind of wrong.
    If someone were to say "an Irish Traveller" did X or Y, then that's just a statement of fact.  No more offensive than saying "I was cut up by an Audi driver today".  What you appear to have an issue with is the use of the word "Pikey", which as I stated about a million posts ago now, is simply a different word used to describe a person of the turnpike.. a "pikey".
    The fact that you immediately ASSUMED the term was being used in a derogatory way says more about you than it does the person using the term.

    There's a Pot/kettle/black moment if ever I saw one.
     
    I wasn't going to bother saying anything more, but I am going to respond point made two pages ago by SiC:
    No.  "Paki" comes from a shortening of "Pakistani", describing a person from Pakistan.  It's *exactly* the same as shortening a British person to a "Brit".  It's not the word that is offensive, it's the manner in which is is used and the intention behind it.  You can use the word Paki, Brit, or any other shortening of the descriptor for where someone comes from, and it's the manner in which it is used that matters.
    It's just unfortunate that one word is generally associated with negativity and the other not.

    Better not offend them whilst they are stealing dogs, having roads closed off in Cardiff due to gun offences, having horse and cart races on my local roads, driving around in untaxed vehicles, forcing contractors to crush stolen vehicles etc. Don’t offend the poor souls.

    'Pikey' isn't racist, because 'pikeys' don't belong to a different racial/ethnic group. I'm aware that there was some bullshit legislation passed to the contrary a few years ago, but as I've said before: if they passed a law stating that apples are root vegetables, it wouldn't suddenly become true.
    You cannot choose your ethnic group based solely on your life choices. Pikeys are ethnically caucasians from the British Isles, just like the majority of UK inhabitants.

    I find your pseudo - offensce offensive.
    Not me per se, but on behalf of someone/person/them/they/twats* who can't deal with actual opinions and differences, or being offended.

    Many years ago I borrowed my brothers D reg Astra van to drive from Wallheath to Stourport-On-Severn via Bridgnorth to collect some mk2 escort parts.
    After driving the van in the manner only a 17 year old hot head would,  I pulled into the breakers yard in Stourport (Roy Nunns) and there was a loud bang as the steering column popped out of the pinch bolt fixing that held the column to the steering rack. How this didn’t happen when I was doing 80 plus down the rabbit run I will never know, although if it had of I probably wouldn’t  be here to post about it.

    I won't even go under the car to place the axle stands. I send Imp Jr, he can fit into much tighter spaces and get them right under.

    The engine runs in open loop mode before it's at operating temp, before going to closed loop. Feedback from pre and post cat sensors is used to determine air fuel ratio. The engine is up to temp.
    Yes, blank it if possible, if not then leave it disconnected.

    It’s not the act itself, it’s the colour choice that's potentially controversial. As I said in the part of my post that you haven’t quoted I don’t give a toss what colour it is.  Just don’t post on a public forum and then get upset when not everyone  likes the end result.

    If you post pictures you will get comments. You don't get to say I only want 'good ones'.  That's not what a forum is.  If people don't like it, they can scroll by, if you don't like their comments, ignore them (your choice) if you want, or ignore them. If people overstep the mark, well, that's what Moderation used to be about, clue is in the name, with a big or little 'm'.  If you don't want to read comments, don't post pictures in a forum.
