The posts (every single one) on this forum are indeed checked every day. We get over 90,000 users every single week and many of them know nothing but still have no problems in posting information they got from their granny 25 years ago. This information could kill so we put in place qualified tradesmen (18 of them) to monitor the forum every day. Sometimes this leads to posts being a little slower than other sites but it also allows us to sleep properly. All the professional advice on this site is totally free and stupid posts, dangerous information and "chat" is not tollerated so if there are any complaints in this direction please send them to the sites owner Mike Edwards on email@example.com.
Thank goodness I always worry about saying wrong thing. It is so hard to give advice without making an error as to how good the reader is at working out what you have said. Miss out a turn off mains before could really cause problems. As an electrician who can't work because of an industrial accident I enjoy keeping in touch but I for one would not like to be responsible if some one miss understood my advise. I am dyslexic and as a result I can make mistakes in how I put things. I know exactly what I mean to say but that may not be what is perceived as what I say. So great work by the checkers and I hope they continue in their good work.

No need to apologise Rocky. We are very grateful for your (and most) replies but whatever we do we get complaints so we were just addressing those rather than your post. Take care and a happy new year to all !! Doc
The only problem is where two people answer while it is being checked and then it can look as if one is criticizing the other when in fact they are unaware of each others comments. But once one realizes this it's no longer a problem. Although I did make an error with one post fortunately 333Rocky333 found it. Glad that one got through quick thanks Rocky.
