There are a couple of examples on this thread alone. I don’t want him banned, just for him to be reminded of the expectations you’ve set for respectfulness between forum posters. Margaret Swift is another one who I believe could do with a reminder, but she may be above reproach. Thanks.
@DawlishNews (the same person as @Webmaster) has also disappeared.
Charging a 10p convenience fee isn’t breaking the law. If it was, then they should be punished - but not as heavily as stupid idiots who dump their cars on double yellow lines. I’ve never said that lawbreakers shouldn’t be punished.
Just think how many penny chews one could buy with that 10p that I willingly and knowingly parted with. Judging by by the lack of Agrees that you requested, it looks like you’re alone in thinking Ringo is Wrongo... To answer your latest question, if I didn’t pay to park in a chargeable parking place, then I’d quite rightly expect to receive a parking ticket. Likewise if I were stupid ...
You’re talking about a credit card fee for parking in London, I’m talking about a 10p “convenience fee” in Exeter.

Yet again majorp, you’re talking in riddles All you have to do is, in your own words, explain how we’re being overcharged.
Oh dear. As I thought, no-one who uses ‘Ringo’ etc is being overcharged. Apart from in the paranoid heads of those who are too thick to understand the T&Cs that they willingly agreed to. In which case, they really aren’t safe to be on the roads...
Thanks for the info Leatash, but that’s not an overcharge because I’m made well aware of the costs, including the minor charges for any optional additional texts, as they’re all clearly identified when one signs up. It can’t be that, so what does majorp mean by “overcharge”? If I’ve been overcharged then, as he requests, I’ll readily ‘Agree’ with his post
