Thanks again everyone.

And its nice to see some of the people (here and by PM) who I've had a run in or two with showing we're all human, and decent people after all.


Don't worry, I take nothing with me other than positive memories of a great experience. and maybe a bit of relief!

Great someone new to abuse by the end of the week! Actually being honest, I'm more into hugs and kisses.

In that light Stu, can the new one be a she?

Quite possibly the only forum on the internet that i have remained loyal too. Even during times when i havent owned a scooby. That says an awful lot about the forum as a whole.

Well done for making SN what it is and i hope IB continue where you have left off.

All the best Simon,

Without all your hard work and enthusiasum keeping this site going i dont think my last 9 years of scooby ownership would have been half as enjoyable.

Enjoy whatever you get into next and thanks.

Ok....... you win !!!

Simon you put up with me for a few years having a go about a few matters i believed in etc And a few i just wanted to wind you up with.

No one could keep us all happy, thats something most men would agree with.

At the current Road tax prices i doubt Scoobynet will be around for long !!! so you did well to sell it on !

Now Go have fun with your family.

100% HONEST best wishes

Not been around long but am totally grateful for the existence of SN. Thank you Simon for sticking around this long so there was something for us to come to down the line. Being a referee is never easy and enjoy your retirement!

Thanks Simon, I've found the site really useful as a relatively recent first-time Scooby owner.

Simon, thank you!

Scoobynet has been great for me over the last seven or so years. Like you I've learnt a lot here and have a lot to thank it / you for, not least my girlfriend, without Snet we'd never have met!

All the best for the future!

Thank you and all the best in the future, having only met you a few times Simon in person (I mainly remember the 'secrect' day at prodrive when we tested 'Virtual Spectator' before it got fittedto the WRC cars) I feel like we are good friends, knowing you were always availible on here if every needed.

I hope you now GET A LIFE!!

remember, if you every need any information on something... theres a website with 10's of 1000's of people who will be more than willing to give you some feed back.

just can't think what that websites called off the top of my head! lol

all the best

Phil .

I joined up nearly 10 years ago as member 300ish - now it's nearly 91000. The only websites I'm still visiting every week 10 years on are BBC news, hotmail and Scoobynet. Enough said.

You deserve the Internet equivalent of a knighthood: sir.simon

Thanks for all the hard work

I havent been around much recently having switched brands but scoobynet was the first forum I became addicted to & its great to see its still as strong as ever. Credit for that has to be in some way due to your continual efforts.

Enjoy wherever you are heading

Simon, I wish you the best of luck with your R&R and where ever that takes you next. I know I didn't agree with you during our short dealings but can certainly see how much effort you've put into building a solid community of interest and ensuring it survived the hard times and positioned well for the future. Well done for that.
Best Regards,
