Some 500+ videos gone as Andrew has closed this channel.
A lot of dead links.
Ah, but I was so much older then. I'm younger than that now.

I have closed the channel permanently.

I asked for politeness from anyone who wished to respond to the videos. Criticism no problem as long as a person was willing to put their name forward to identify themselves as the critic.

This merely encouraged a spate of anonymous rude,aggressive and unpleasant remarks, which as the channel was formed by a school, I wasn't prepared to tolerate.

I guess this is life in the social media world. You put your head above the parapet to be praised one moment and then shot down the next.

I can do without it.

Thank you very much to all who viewed the recordings.

If what Andrew says is in any way correct, I just find the way he was treated utterly disgraceful, and the people who indulged in such behaviour utterly despicable.

Shame on them.

Perhaps the trolls will come on here to disagree. If so, hopefully Carl will insist on them disclosing their names.

This is sad news. The posts & watching them were my highlight of the month.
Best wishes to Andrew and the school channel.
