Hi
Just an observation from a new member but browsing some of the threads kimichi doesn't give new /prospective parents
a feel good factor. What ever his/her agenda is she/he comes across as a bit sinister. I can't say that this is strictly abuse as it isn't but it makes me feel uncomfortable which, I guess is the point of the posts. I would think she/he is best ignored but she/doesn't create great impression when you think that this site is often watched by people thinking of sending a child to the school. I hope I am not speaking out of turn.

Thanks for this. We'll keep an eye. Can't immediately see anything which breaches our rules, but will watch.
It looks like there are some good replies to counter some of his rather stylised third-person comments....

My personal view is that he/she is a current and possibly, disgruntled pupil.

Welcome dinahcat, I think you will also see that he/she is making us all -old hands as well as new- a bit hot under the collar, all the worse because we don't know the agenda.

Thanks for all the replies. I can see now that all the 'old hands' are more than a match for the silly thing so I will just ignore 'it'!

Could just be Chris Botham who left in 03 (for example), hasn't posted any objectionable stuff.

I picked this one up this morning - it was definitely spam, and i've deleted the posts and banned the user.
