Google 'Tapatalk security' and you'll find all of the supposedly bad things posted about TT which get quoted as justification to get rid. I'll just drop off FCF when the plug is pulled. Switch to read only maybe once a month. Can't really be bothered with all the hassle of being talked at by 'administration' trying to push their case with no regard for the members anymore quoting 'security', 'possible malware' and a multitude of other issues which the rest of the forum community seem perfectly well able to handle. But no, not ours. It's seen as an opportunity to push change fir the sake of change, my opinion. Withdrawal of TT support wont be the end of the forum per se, it will be current admin practices that hasten its demise. Sad to see how its ending up but heyho, that's progress. Move over and let the young bright things have their play ...

I did say I wasn't going to make further comment, but really I have to question the motives of a member who by their own admission has no real need for the forum & indeed doesn't have any of their cars on the road currently, yet continues to kick back against a decision which has been made in the interests of security (which is indeed a real one even if it only amounts to petty copyright infringements & has been explained as far as possible with examples given of the risks posed both past & present) and more than that, encourages others to "give it up" rather than persevere with other methods which admin are actively working on making more viable for them. I feel it would be a great shame if Davie did give up on the forum as unlike some I believe he does have further useful input to add to the community.
I feel like your argument is more a point of principle/egotistical kicking of the current admin team than a genuine issue with tapatalk support being withdrawn & if you were that bothered about the community as a whole & had worthwhile input to give then you too would persevere with other options rather than adopt the "it's TT or delete all my posts" stance you currently hold.
