    Still nothing on the main site - seeing as it stopped on November 7th I think we can rule out a two minute 'net silence

    Yeah it is interesting. I'll keep a watchful eye on the situation. I don't understand how BITE adverts still come up even with a pop up blocker!

    If you're running Win7 or Vista with Internet Explorer then you should be able to stop pop-ups from the site.

    If you are using XP then I believe Firefox allows you to stop ads on a specific site.

    I feel slightly embarassed about raising this thread now as BITE is completely rubbish in so many ways, er, actually in every respect to be honest. The make-over is definitely in the Young's style.

    No need to be embarassed - most of us started out life on the BITE forum (no longer in existance) and migrated over here due to the lack of discipline and the overrunning of the forum by trolls. The moderators attitude was to bar anyone who raised their head over the parapet and took on the trolls.
    The overall lack of interest by the site management filters through to every level.

    Thanks to Conrad and Dave this site is so much better - cheers guys!

    There used to be a thread on this somewhere on this site where we reported the trolling abuse to remind ourselves what we were missing, but interest in BITE diminished over time and so did the thread...

    Hear hear. Fair moderation and a willingness to listen to the members has made this site far superior to BITE; the latter has just gone from bad to worse as itrs reviews have denegrated into slanging matches, noise and drivel.

    Whereas we just specialise in drivel.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

    I see their "Featured Pub Chain" is Wetherspoons with the bold claim that 602 are currently listed on the site. Only 162 short at the last count!

    But at least it's harmless drivel.

    I had an e-mail from them a few weeks back informing me that the pub that I had requested to be added had been........22 months after I requested it!

    Is this a record?
