    Are you telling me you aren't even slightly curious as to the reasoning behind the turnaround from an unchecked diatribe of vitriol, accusation and aggression to the consumption of the humblest of...

    I am REALLY interested to know who spoke to you and what they threatened you with to make you change your tune so abruptly. Please pray tell.

    Please accept my apologies. (Iíll send you a bottle of wine by way of apology later)

    If youíre after a truly authentic Italian wine may I suggest either a 2011 Smirnoff Ice or a late 2008 WKD Blue?

    I find that a 2009 Lambrini always partners very well with a night smugly chuckling to oneself on the fencing forum.

    This thread is getting as spicy as a Bombay Bad Boy pot noodle.

    Thanks for at least 20 mins of solid entertainment on this everyone.

    As the NGB has a policy of not engaging on the forum might I suggest drafting an open letter? PM me, I would be keen to help in the draft.

    Also thank you very much for all your work. And the work of other volunteers in an imperfect system.

    Thanks for clarifying Jon.

    This is as I suspected. Are you in a position to advise on who makes the decisions regarding ranking systems and calendar management. Would love to have a word.

    I had witnessed so much pettiness it looks like I succumbed to it. Apologies for the Ďjog oní but take the forum at face value. Itís a forum, there will be debate, people will be wrong, they are all...

    Jon. Whilst I appreciate you arenít a member or the governing body (I might be wrong on that) you are probably well placed to tell us whether there is appetite in the decision making community to...

    To be fair if you block half of the very limited number of people on the forum then it will probably diminish your ability to follow many of the threads.

    I can see the merit in blocking trolls or...

    I think I would go for oversimplified rather than patently wrong. Sabre refs do look at the feet to see who establishes priority, amongst many other things ;).

    It's very encouraging to see that you have so many young foilists that you can afford to run an event targeting only half of the population.

    Good job Eastern Region.

    A cynical person might suggest that, the status quo being what it is, it is not in the interests of the top ranked women's foilists to attend domestic competition because they have nothing to gain by...

    I agree that crowdfunding for the entire squad was probably folly. I would be happy to support some fencers but not others. Some fencers in the squad have truly given their life to the sport, there...
