Re: Adjournments and Adjudication

What is the need for malicious intent by you John, whatever I do you seem to pick faults I didn't realise you would be so egregious towards me. Very upsetting really that no one can have freedom of speech in this world.

Re: GRADING ANOMALIES

It does not seem a bad Idea although I think it's best to not to change the ECF grading around anymore as it's going to take a few years to get back to normal, due to inflation.

John saunders, I take personal offence to that purely because I have not done anything wrong I have purely stated my opinions in a fair and polite way; I would suggest you take those remarks back. As there is no evidence to support your claim.
