People who believe that Forums are identical to an ideal democracy will be disappointed. Even democracy must have some ground rules and ways of enforcing them, otherwise it could not exist.

Of course there are some ‘good behaviour’ rules, the so-called netiquette, which have to be followed for the pleasant and productive use of the system.

All aboard! Have a pleasant journey in the fascinating world of Shipping.
