Is there a special reason that 'Set Stuff' is restricted for answers?

None that I am aware of. Others are posting there so its lot locked or restricted> I just looked and it should be working for you.

Check it again Byre

Sorry

Hmm - now the 'You may not reply here' sign has gone away! Did you do something?

BTW, I for one really do appreciate the work that you do here - I used to run a form for audio stuff and for a couple of years we were the second busiest audio forum (after Gearslutz) and keeping up with rubbish like spam and writing code for daft stuff like picture dimensioning, deleting accounts, changing running orders and ranking members and improving search functions - it threatened to become a full-time job!

Then a massive fight broke out between members. The whole thing crashed and TBH I never really understood what some of them were so upset about - but it seemed to start with either politics or someone was stalking someone else. As a sound engineer, I'd make a truly rotten psychologist! Apparently some people have all sorts of feelings that have very little to do with microphones, phase cancellations, input impedances and the Haas effect. Silly, I know, but they are out there! Go figure!

Anyway, I have noticed that a couple of members here who otherwise have legitimate things to say about film and cinematography seem also to wish to inject politics and other non-film issues into debates. One of them tried to attack others here personally and perhaps that is something to be careful about - just a thought!

Anyway, it's now beer o'clock here in God's own chosen country, so once again, thanks for all the work you do!

I think that cold wind has got up your kilt Laddie, you’d better have another Dram!
God seems to have chosen two countries to claim that title. If you want to ‘arm wrestle’ with some real Pirates and dance with drunken ‘wenches’ then there is no finer place than Kingswear Devon. We can hold our liquor and still toss tree trunks into the air, single handed! Hic!

"Real Pirates and dance with drunken ‘wenches’ then there is no finer place than Kingswear Devon." ???

Say what!!!! I went there on holiday when I was still in Germany about 22 years ago. I thought I would show my wife rural Englandshire. She fell about laughing and asked me if they bury their dead in bus shelters clutching a bingo ticket!

Toss tree trucks? What? At the 'Steam Packet Inn' serving traditional Engish pizzas?

The Byre. Trucks are too heavy to toss, maybe a small bus? “Steam Packet” pub are for the yachting types, plastic booties etc, plastic people! There are 147 pubs in the area of Torbay, but if you want to meet “Jack Sparrow” then it has to be the next town of Brixham. Bring your cutlass and make sure your pistol is cocked and hidden in your pants. The local brew is deadly it’s called “Screatch” the remnants of the cider barrel. It tastes like Paraffin!

1. Damn auto-correct! Trucks, trunks, no red line so it stayed in!
2. They drive Audis too (i.e. Skodas with breasts!)
3. Brixham sounds like my kinda town!
4. At my age, keeping it in my pants is the default position!
5. Tastes like paraffin eh? Sounds like my kinda brew!

Hi Robert and Mike,

I'm getting the 'you don't have permission to reply here' on some of the forums. For instance, The Podcast forums are working for me, but for others such as 'Film Talk' I'm only able to 'Add Comment' (reply to someone else's comment) and get the 'you don't have permission..." at the bottom.
