You'll be back sport. Can't stay away for too long without your T2W fix. :)

As far as I remember he has a luxury villa in the South of France and a luxury yacht North of England. Can't be all that bad surely.

Au revoir as our French friends say.

. . . Friday 20th March will be my last day visiting this site, for those of you who already know of my decision, I will keep in contact as we discussed.

Happy Trading all.
I'm very sorry to read of your decision Rob - you've been a great contributor to T2W and you will be sorely missed. I'm especially disappointed because - as Mr. Charts points out - the forum is a much more civilized place these days that it was just a few years ago. So, if there's anything we can do to make you change your mind - please get in touch. In the meantime, I wish you well and hope that your trading and life in general goes from strength to strength.

. . . I left half-way through 2013, for the same reason, came back a week or so ago for a look around to see if it had changed, and discovered to my dismay that it really hasn't. And apparently nobody in authority cares at all.
A bit harsh Alexa!
I care passionately about this place - and have done for a very long time. I confess that I've never understood the logic that when two or members have a spat - then somehow it's the moderators and staff who are to blame! Be that as it may, if you - or anyone else - has suggestions as to how the site can be improved - I'm all ears!
Tim.

A bit harsh Alexa!

Fair and accurate, actually, Tim. I deliberately didn't explain the background to my comment (after some thought about whether or not I should), because it would have been hugely disrespectful, in these circumstances, to hijack Rob's thread or risk making it about me, rather than about him.

Another time, maybe.

Or just tell Paul Gould to reply to his private messages, if you want it to look as if the forum's interested in member concerns and/or suggestions. Or just ask Steve, if he's no longer able to deal with members' well-intentioned inquiries, to pass them on himself to someone who is. Otherwise people will start whining in public, as Rob and I both are. (To be fair to Rob, he didn't actually "whine" at all: he just announced his departure, which was of course more than most people have bothered to do.)

if you - or anyone else - has suggestions as to how the site can be improved - I'm all ears!

It's a shame none of your colleagues apparently is, Tim.

And it's a shame they never have been in the past, when all those members left.

And it's a shame Rob feels as he does and nobody's ever been willing to do anything about it. But you and I both know that he's one among hundreds.

I've "had it up to here" with trying to be helpful. I'm just plain pissed off by this forum, and as you see I've even reached a point where I don't mind saying so publicly, since nobody takes any notice at all when I try to do that privately, however tactfully and politely I try.

I care passionately about this place

I used to, at one time. And I know that Rob did, too. It's time (actually it's way beyond time) for you - plural, not you personally, Tim! - to start asking yourself why this thread has arisen in spite of the fact that both Rob and I used to care about this forum. That's about the forum, not about us.

Think about it, the markets are nothing more than a... ' ground for slanging matches, arguement and counter arguement...' ,

The markets are the ultimate argument arena ? So, T2w, ought to be a breeze to endure , without any great hardship ?


It shouldn't affect us significantly , t2w, I mean. See ?

I've being around on T2W since 2003, of late I found most the forums I visit have become nothing more than a ground for slanging matches, arguement and counter arguement, with nothing constructive coming from them, for me anyway.

Friday 20th March will be my last day visiting this site, for those of you who already know of my decision, I will keep in contact as we discussed.

Happy Trading all.

Bye. Rob


Really sorry to hear of your decision to leave Dinos, and I'd like to say BIG thank you as you did help my trading couple of years ago by taking the time to explain your system.


I'm also one of those who feels the site is improving but respect your perspective and consider the possibility I'm changing for the worst along with T2W and haven't noticed the deterioration. :cheesy:

Needless to say I sincerely wish your return when the wind blows in the right direction again.

Why have so many hundreds of members left, then? Why is this forum (in contrast to some others) the merest shadow of its former self?

What difference , do you sense, since you've been a member ? What affected you, that made you notice any change ?

People don't like change!

I don't like to see Dinos change and leave the site.

I would like Dinos, however, to change his mind.


That's the problem... It's all about Dinos... Really I can't believe simply how selfish some people can be :cry:


People like to change everything else but them selves and I think I've proved my point. :smart:

It doesn't matter (any more, to me) and this perhaps isn't the place for a full-blown "stewards' inquiry" about it, anyway. I support Rob in his decision to leave, but I'm sorry to see him go, ok? :|

Not to sound crass or rude...but Who Cares if someone decides to leave a forum...i find it kind of hilarious that we are treating it like it's a funeral or something

It's the world of Trading...one of the most cold,heartless,soulless places there are. afterall. next.:devilish:

First of all it's not a funeral but a little bit like being excused from the table.

World of trading is nothing like that? You crazy fool. :cheesy:


World of trading is purely a personal experience between you and the market... Who gets to screw who is purely up to your personal approach, foreplay and ability :love::love::love:
