Fair enough, as far as I am concerned. I have no problem with that. That sort of decision has to remain yours and yours alone.
I recently had a choice of  either decide to go to court with a leading insurer (before disclosure stage), or  capitulate because I wasn't prepared to risk £100,000 on the (in my view) small risk that I could lose and be ordered to pay costs. I chose to drop the case against them but despite getting most of my money back from DVLA, I've regretted my decision ever since. I accepted counsel's advice after a somewhat heated debate with him in chambers but now I believe he was totally wrong for a number of reasons.
I think a disclaimer on the forum might help your position as will making it clear that you are affording anyone mentioned in any post the right of reply.
Every little helps... as they say.
