Yes, me too!
I did join because I was invited, but was later expelled because I dared to have a different view to that of the group owners (the systematic destruction of sota in it’s current form).
It’s not what one would call a democratic group
I’ve been subscribing to BBs, newsgroups, forums etc. since the 80s and this is the only group I’ve ever had any issues with. (moderation and banning) Go figure!
Why it even mentions SOTA in the title is mystery. It’s entire purpose (they say design) is anti SOTA. they encourage “hate Speech” against the MT or anyone that they think is associated with them…
I was called all sorts of names and subjected to nothing short of slanderous remarks…
I was even accused of being both a MT member and 3CWI.
Yes a fly in their ointment…
It’s a shame the group exists with SOTA in the title…
As a source of info it’s bordering on the pathetic.
Only yesterday the response to a new UK user on how to SMS a spot, using an iPhone, was to use RRT (an Android app ) or use the Hungarian SMS service. Obviously directing him here,where he’d get the right answer, was too much effort:frowning:
So if you want a FB group which consists of ad hom remarks, slander and a daily helping of pretty awful recordings from somewhere in SE England, then you’re missing a treat.
If not, the other group (with over 3000 members) is the right place to be!
I have opened the thread since your comment doesn’t quite conform to my memory. He actually asked initially how to use SMS on an iphone to self spot. Subsequently after asking how to contact Andy, he said “I also see that some people use a Hungarian mobile number to self spot?” You were, of course, correct to give him information about that.
Those of us that have been abused and pilloried on that site will have a wry smile for the thought that any “rant” on this site can compare to the concentrated venom that is sometimes spat out on the other site, Sylvia. This is a shame because, in between the occasional “hate the MT” sessions and the like, that site seems to do a good job. Perhaps it needs treatment for bipolar disorder!
