    What would ATW know about personality?!

    Problem is - I don’t think he is doing any work.

    Any suggestions how to handle it?

    Ask him if he posts on CUK, if not show him and encourage him to sign-up to the forum. With a bit of luck he'll read this thread and beat the sh*t out of you.

    Decent human beings, unlike you, help inexperienced people - not go on the web and bitch. Have a nice weekend.

    One or two lady contractors I liked to get touchy feely with - well before I met Mrs V.
