"...can the people who are making stupid comments **** off ...."

I made a similar request in a thread about plastic plumbing some months
ago, mostly the same people. I think the answer was no; they can't
control themselves.

This is an unmoderated newsgroup. On the whole, the s/n ratio is very
good. If you don't like what someone has to say, killfile them. If you
don't like a thread, ignore it.

But don't tell people what they should/shouldn't post.

Oh Bugger !!! :-( Here was me starting to believe it. :-) LOL !!! I was
going to say "You didn't want to do it like" You should 'ave used 4 mm csa'
cos' it's a lot stronger, and it doesn't stretch as much as the 2.5 mm does
with that size load pulling on it. :-) ROFL !!!

Hmmm interesting dilemma really....

For regular readers of this group there would be little need to ask what
boilers are recommended since this is a FAQ that usualy elicits much the
same set of suggestions.

Regular readers are also well aware of IMMs track record, and his
tendency to post advertising copy without much analytical thought, and
so would take any recommendations and statements of "fact" with a pinch
of salt.

The newbie however may not have read the recommendations for boilers,
but then also they may not have encountered our pet troll and may accept
the "wisdom" offered and go off an do something silly, like install a
collection of boilers with complete disregard for the gas supply they
have available, or install a "high flow rate combi" only to find that
their mains cold water supply is not up to it.

One of the great strengths of this group is the diverse range of
multi-disciplinary skills the contributors have. If someone makes a
suggestion, then you can be fairly certain that any omissions / errors /
additional information required will be pointed out in short order.

Sorry but had to say it.


Well suggest a solution, allow someone to spout misinformation without
correction on the grounds most of us have heard it before, shame about
the newbie, or deal with the issues (again) and hack off the the folks
who can't work out when to skip a thread that has reached the point of
generating more heat than light?

By the way would you recommend Worcester bosch condensing boilers......?


By all accounts they are good.

others that folks round these parts like are Valiant, Ideal, Man /
EcoHometec, Kestron, Gloworm...

If the posters asking the same old questions again and again would only take
at least a look at Google they would most likely find the answer to their
question without provoking yet another waste of bandwidth. Then again if you
consider things more fully, we have amongst our regulars a few sensible and
down to earth engineers, plus a loon who claims to be an expert in
everything but steadfastly avoids giving ANY clues as to what he is
qualified in or where he obtained his qualifications and has the dubious
distinction of first appearing in the group asking questions about such
basic things as what is latent heat and being unable to understand the
difference between flow and volume, you may feel its perhaps best to avoid
setting off yet another yah-boo-sucks thread.

Which was some time ago. If the foolish e-mail John Burns-Curtis (then
calling himself Adam) sent me is any guide it was in the spring of 2000.

If everybody just ignored him, things would be fine.


The problem with ignoring dIMM is that there is always the possibility
that newcomers might actually believe what he says and fit 100l baths
fed by 2 combis in bathrooms lined with a foot of insulation (to mention
only a few of his dim beliefs.

Well, not all people know that they can Google - or even if they do their
first port of choice would be to come straight to the groups where they hope
for personal advice.

If the past posts on Google, together with the FAQ, have all the information
anyone could want and no-one ever comes here the ng is likely to turn into
complaints about Scewfix, Focus and YKW.

There are irritating posts, there are bad mannered replies. They can be
ignored. I'm amazed that I'm not ignored more.

On the whole I find uk.d-i-y the best tempered ng I know and have learned a
huge amount from it - and made some good friends. It's wonderful resource.

Well suggest a solution....

Suggestion;
A dedicated IMM thread(s) with links to the many idiosyncratic IMMisms
(hacksaws to cut PEX, etc., etc.,) in other threads and the differing
opinions of other contributors posted in those threads. Posting a link
when he starts going should prevent the subject getting swamped with
posts which are solely disagreeing with IMM. The main disadvantage is
that the IMM thread is liable to be swamped with contributions from the
great man himself, but that might divert his attention.

Maybe a section on great IMMisms in the FAQs?

I'm programmed to ignore himm, my eyes glaze over. The prolonged
disagreements he regularly provokes are a PITA.

Any more suggestions?

Exactly. That's why is best to just have as single dIMM alert in every
thread he posts to.

I suggest a voluntary limit of one posting per thread per OP's post and
one post per poster to correct anything wrong especially if a potentially
dangerous practice or idea is suggested.

Not if you genuinely forgot something of course but in order to stop
ding-dong threads. Whilst it is true we would have no ding-dong threads if
one specific poster retired it is also true that ding-dong threads need at
least 2 players.

So:

Newbie:
Sensible reply poster 1:
Humourous reply poster 2:
Sensible reply poster 3:
Sensible reply 4: (the subject has now been fully done to death)
dIMM's post: (Possibly suggesting impractical or even dangerous
practices).
Correction by poster 1:
Correction poster 2:
Correction poster 3:
dIMM's inlflamed reply: (probably incorporating "snip drivel" or "ignore
these amateurs"
NO FURTHER POSTS by posters 1-4.
....
....
Newbie posts: (seeking clarification etc).
a further round of posts may be occur.

I think this is workable, allows for correction of potentially dangerous
stuff and should prevent (ding-dong)*n style threads.

I think that sounds a lot more like a job than a hobby - we'd need to
discuss hours and pay before I'd want to go along with this.

Yes, definitely a good idea - Phil Addison does post an occasional

Someone writes something and gives it to Phil for the FAQ, or Phil
grabs any particularly suitable postings and massages them into
FAQ format. I'd suggest talking with Phil first, just in case
someone else is already working on the same section.
