    Seems to be getting a bit like it on here lately. Wfp guys knocking trad & how fast better & quicker it is & how much you can earn. If you like wfp great. If you like trad great. End of story. Some custies like wfp some don't end of story. Long as there's enough work for all of us & we're all earning ok who cares. Both have disadvantages & advantages but don't knock someone coz they do wfp or trad.

    I was practically a founder member on CIU. When I started there was only one guy doing WFP. His name was Justin Ruggles and he was the original pioneer. He inspired a lot of others.
    But CIU had big problems with trolls and wind-up merchants who nearly caused it to close at one time. Nutcases with two or three different identities who would have arguements with everybody every drink fueled Friday night. The moderators lost control.

    The other forums were basically all split offs from CIU. Me? I got banned for telling a moderator he was drunk and maybe he should stop posting because he was making a fool of himself. The next morning he couldn't even remember doing it. He deleted my account and I never bothered to rejoin.

    Don't worry about WFP v Trad arguements now. Its mostly banter. Years ago it was real

    I don't knock trad, I still do a bit, besides it was my bread and butter for over 10 years. To be fair it's gone both ways, but don't ask me who started what! :) I only knock customers who never give alternative methods a chance.
    Personally, the way I see it, is there are now a lot of w/c about, likely recession induced, and tbh I feel a lot more threatened by the wfp guys as they are more likely tobe in it for keeps, whereas a trad guy, though, round these parts at least, may be more in favor with householders, is more likely to give it up for a, ahem, proper job!

    Well said ;)

    Think you will find that it's just friendly banter mostly on here so is no way as bad.

    Their is always going to be trad v wfp same as their will always will be iPhone v android and many other things. As long as people keeps this friendly and not turn it into a nasty argument then all is good. If however they do then please report these post. We don't want to be CIU and I can see why they almost closed. A community is only as good as its members. Yes we have some input in trying to manage the crowds but on the whole its how members are that defines a community and gives it its reputation. Its a hard balance some may feel we are to strict some may feel we are not both action by us have repcutions but hopefully we are doing a good job :D
