Hence the piece on South West Trains' website:-

The SHRUG website has now reappeared after an unexplained absence for several days.  The new 'Hogrider' is available for view.

No apology that the website was AXED for several days, though it does mention a DUFF Internet Service Provider, and the fact the newsletter is SHORT FORMED only including data up to 25th September.  Perhaps the server was SEVERELY OVERCROWDED?   Wink

This ‘user group’ seems to have gone quiet recently

Be careful what you wish for? Lol

The part of your post that I have NOT quoted could be seen as a personal attack on another member.  You may well not agree with his views or methods of expressing them but, please, restrain from personal attacks.

Thank you.  It's so often not how something's intended but how it can be misread!

It was good to meet Dennis, representing SHRUG, at the Trowbridge consultation today.   He confirmed the common story from the gathered audience that connectivity at Westbury is key for Solent area passengers travelling to Taunton, Plymouth and beyond.

As it was a very busy couple of hours, our conversation was quite brief.  I did mention The Coffee Shop, where he is a member and has posted a few times.  Good to put a face to the name, and a voice to what has been purely an online correspondence.

Ah ... some of us are characterised by our online style and don't come across in quite the same way in person.  I  (and another member or two) here tend to mis-spell, and there are others who capitalise for emphasis on written pieces but not in real life.   It's actually become rather a good marketing tool for SHRUG - whether intended that way initially or not.

The header to my post reminds me "first post in this topic for 41 months - are you sure?"   Yes, I am - looking around at various sites, I see the SHRUG newsletter quoted in Rail User Express - from  http://www.shrug.info/Hogrider163/Hogrider%20163.html. Much of the character remains, suggesting to me that Hogrider still has the same people behind it, but there is no longer a long list of train services changed by Stagecoach / SWT (South West Trains).

Section headlines (in the traditional shouty style):
