Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

All - let's get back to the post and stop slagging one another off, please.

Can I suggest a similar situation here in the hope of crystalising your views??

Would it be true to say that...

If you believe the 'middle-aged' couple in Manda's post WERE adequately taught (ie the result is NOT a valid way to judge the standard of instruction), would you apply the same to driving instruction?

My point is that some people learn to drive to a MEASURABLE standard (ie the driving test) with very few lessons and others never reach the standard required - despite using the same instructors (some presumption on my part, I admit). If someone takes 20 hours of driving lessons and fails the test, do they qualify for a refund?? Not as far as I know - I certainly didn't!

For what it's worth, my initial reaction to Manda's post was that the couple had been 'hard done by' and a refund would be reasonable but, as I don't feel the same way about driving instruction, I'm confused now. Puzzled Embarassed

Red Leon,

Oh, bug! I've just read the second & third pages of this thread and now realise the original point is buried so deep in jibberish I probably shouldn't have raised it again.

Red Leon, the point of posting my description was NOT (despite some poster's assumptions to the contrary) to encourage debate about whether Snowheads can be expected to judge whether the learners had been hard-done by. It was to explain that the learners HAD been hard done by, and then to ask whether anyone has had an experience of shoddy first week instruction with EFS, and if so had they taken it up with EFS.

But only a few people were particularly interested in the point of my post.....as you have seen. You live and you learn.

Manda, in your opinion they had been hard done by, an opinion not necessarily shared by everyone.

Manda, PG will never take anything you say seriously until you start spelling ESF right snowHead

PG, Manda once said a post of mine was "absolute bollox", but I didn't take offence because I knew I was right! I don't actually think she is a troll, but she's just one of the more blunt/honest/argumentative posters here (delete as appropriate), and there are others I could name....

Plake, go on, I dare you wink

It's all down to stats in the end. Just think on this - for "some people" 98% of posts are responses providing people with the information they seek, or general information to the forum. That can represent a helluva lot of time and effort. As for trolls, you'll rarely find a helpful post.

Manda, how do you respond to the accusation of being a troll?

Kramer, yeah, I was partly hoping for other people's opinion as to whether they had been hard done by - although I stick by my conclusion that they were, and I'm annoyed that some posters appear not to like negative comments about ESF (ok, I spelled it wrong - shoot me), and accordingy try to undermine the credibility of the exercise.

Re: trolls - PG said he thought "it" was classic trolling. Dunno what he meant to mean by "it", but incidentally my originating post wasn't trolling. Plake said he didn't think I was a troll. So, Ray Zorro are you accusing me of being a troll? (oo er - Is THAT trolling? wink )

PG, I don't think that is fair to dismiss Manda's comments as trolling, just cos you don't agree with them and she is prepared to argue her point. How do you reckon it is trolling? Personally I would have found your comment to be quite insulting.

Ah, having now read that thread I can understand your comments PG. Trolling though? I don't think so, trolling involves an element of maliciousness whereas I think this is naivety mixed in with unfounded confidence/arrogance. I won't continue this discussion any further though, or contribute to that one - there's a lot I could say about tragedies but it's already been said.

Cathy Coins, I'm not even sure the classic Internet/Usenet troll really involves any malice actually, it's just looking for a reaction which at some levels isn't such a bad thing. However, you're quite right, by any measure it wasn't trolling, it was exactly what you described as.

I have seen slightly more inclusive definitions of the term, but of course you may well both be right as to the level of intent in this case.
