Have had a bit of a think about this over the last couple of days, the Portia ban being the catalyst, conclusion,sorry, this site no longer does what I need.
I may be incorrect re this, but I think I remember that Portia has at least once won the Community Award on Accounting Web for her contributions over the previous year, so to those on the other threads, she is not merely "A Contributor " but something beyond that position, she is one of the pre eminent contributors despite (maybe because of) her bedside manner.
There are a lot of posters on Accounting Web (mainly called Anonymous these days) but frankly there are not that many from whom I, for one, learn that much; she was one of the exceptions.( Before the rest of you feel taken for granted, there are a few others but they are not as prolific.)
I was happy posting my experience for others where there was a quid pro quo that others would post for me, but I am not happy when one of the major learning resources is now no longer available; Accounting Web should take note,there is no free lunch here, if I contribute I want a return on my time investment.
Accordingly it seems appropriate at this juncture to ask what Accounting Web does for my CPD , what is the point? I was happy to post for others when I was getting a reward, I am not happy posting when my reward has become so meagre.
Perhaps I should now , as others do, freeload on the knowledge of others, just sit, read, and not contribute; whilst I accept that over the last few years a lot of my comments have been flippant and frivolous, I think a few have imparted some knowledge to others, and as today I hit the round sum 2,500 thanks mark, it seems appropriate to bow out on a high.
Goodbye and thanks for all the fish
