I have deleted this because I thought it wise to allow scope the opportunity to delete a post I have reported as being nothing short of libel.
I will leave it at that for now.

    Good morning.
    Just a quick update, the thread in question has been review and removed. We do not allow or condone remarks that could be considered libellous.
    Of course it's acceptable for members to share their frustrations about particular services or companies and share reviews of these, but remarks that are defamatory in nature will not be allowed, as per the community guidelines.

    Thank you Adrian, it really bothered me that scope could be leaving itself open to all sorts of action if a thread that contained libel was allowed to stay on site. I and others did report it at the time.
