I was trawling through PistonHeads looking for some information when I stumbled across this thread.

PistonHeads.....The Birth of our Forum

On it Simon announces the new TalkMorgan forum and gets a load of stick from the PH guys.

Well done Simon for persevering with it and giving all us TM'ers such a great DEDICATED forum.

And well done to flyfisher for sticking up for Simon in the argument.

That's good, past fifteen years and still going. Do we know if Whacky Racer is still around?


Just time to rent a thimble more petrol before dinner.

To be honest, if PH users are against something, it tends to indicate it's probably a good thing.

Tried it for a bit, but the dickhead ratio is far too great.

Agree 100%... visiting that thread reminded me why I don't go there anymore.

Thanks Simon, and the "light touch" mods...

Absolutely. Some fascinating predictions there about how TM would eventually sucumb to advertising! Ironic considering Pistonheads sold out to Haymarket Press.

I found the trick with PH is to just subscribe to the threads of interest and don't even look at anything else.
