Ok i have had a few pm's asking why i have deleted certain links from my personal blog so rather than answer each one, as it concerns my blog its simpler to just reply here.
I removed the posts for 2 main reasons , first and foremost i dont like being lied to , i forgave the first time then it happened again, that in truth was enough for me and enough reason for me to remove the posts , secondly and its just again personal choice , i dont agree with their idea of "reviews" , there is nothing nefarious going on i just prefer to not take part in that side of things.
I just want to be clear that no one has asked me to remove those posts i am doing it purely for the reasons above. The links that are left on are put there because i want to put them there to provide to information to anybody reading.

Anyway, back to posting nonsense........
