I found that site very cliquey but I don't really see why you have to bring scottish people into it.. I really don't see moderators doing that to people. I take it you didn't see the member who dedicates his whole online personality to hating scottish people..? Best to just ignore people like that. Nobody will bully you here
Welcome to the forum
Stacey , do you still use that forum ?
And yes it's best to ignore them, but even when you wanted to go and post to others you couldn't so ignoring them did nothing either, thank goodness for this forum is all I can say as there's a better option now at least.
Good to know I wasn't the only one noticing it's cliquey on there. I did notice it when I couldn't get on intermittently with how they spoke down to newbies too just coming on and obviously not returning again. No need for that is there..

I'm on that site as well, there are some cliquey on there (not me), but for the most part I've found it just friendly banter.
The information and knowledge on there for emigrating in particular, to Canada, visas, PR, Citizenship, etc. is second to none, they have CBP's, Lawyers, that are very helpful.
Good use of grammar, punctuation & capitals makes the difference between helping your uncle Jack, off a horse and helping your uncle jack off a horse.
I have left to, there are 2 or 3 people on that forum who seem to delight in being rude and nasty to anyone who does not agree with them. Sad because there is a lot of good info on there and good people willing to help but in the end you just get sick of the nasty ones.
For sure Willow, and sorry it happened to you too, it's happened to many, I've observed and read it with my own eyes, makes me angry too, people come on and just join ask advise or share their own opinion, and then those control freaks block and kick them off while being completely rude in their comments to them as well, it should be them booted off and it given a shake up with a new better moderator rather than a culture of biased friends running the show as they seem to act and like to do.
This one is better in that way. You are right it could be a good site, but the mods on there are all terrible.
