In relation to posts which have now been removed (see point 5) there is a need to emphasise a few points:
This forum and Pico Technology staff are here to support any customer who has, or is looking to purchase a PicoScope. We are not here to fix cars for free, we are here to help customers or potential customers learn how to use our products, to assist in the fixing of their cars whether they are a private owner or a business. If our existing forum users wish to contribute to this they can, if they do not agree with the sharing of information they are perfectly within their own right not to post it. It is personal preference.
Pico Technology do not want to sensor this forum, freedom of speech is just that. Bordering on making things personal, or the pushing of strong opinions however will not be accepted.
We have many different levels of experience on this forum, and we would all do well to remember that. The use of “text” online is complicated as there is no facial expression or emotions included. This means a joke may come across as condescending, a simple remark may come across as rude and offensive, this should also be kept in mind.
If you want to discuss the positive and negative effects of helping Joe Public then feel free to do this, in a thread that is not personal.
I have removed the posts in this thread which did not contribute to the OP question.
IF YOU WISH TO HELP, PLEASE DO.
Please do not attempt to discuss the above within this thread (posts will be deleted). Let's keep it on topic.
If you have any issues please feel free to send me a private message.
