Davey appears to have left Mesh:-((

How do you know that?

  Pine Man 16:57 06 Dec 2010

I occasionally read other fora - or is it forums?

So give me a link

What makes you think that 'Davey' is an individual person?

"What makes you think that 'Davey' is an individual person?"

He is, I've met him.

It's either.

Technically it should be fora, but that's a tad posy in real-world situations, and it's confusing - most people wouldn't have a clue what you were talking about. It's generally accepted in the publishing industry that 'forums' is a perfectly valid plural term for 'forum'.

Since the internet entered our lives the word 'forum' has probably been used more than in the previous thousand years, as has the plural 'forums'. That's good enough to make it a correct useage.

It should be quite easy for Mesh to keep posting as "Davey" as I assumed that Davey was on the Mesh Staff and, as an Employee, his Log-in Name and Password will be Mesh's Property.

As many of you will know. Many Companies create a Fictitious Character to Front their Customer Relations Department, a sort of Max Headroom if you remember. I assumed that although Davey probably existed, his part was played by others when he was not available.

...towards the end of October.

The mystery deepens!

So, is he still there?

Posts elsewhere seem to indicate his mailbox is now, well, unattended

And he certainly hasn't been around this forum lately

At once upon a time there was Davey, Amit and Phil who have represented Mesh on this forum, and all have used Davey's email box in his absence.
