I couldn't understand why good posters would wish to abandon this place and bugger off to another forum.

Then I saw the 'walk to work' threads and it has become clear.

When someone starts one, do they seriously think it will add value to the place?

Hit the nail on the head. @Jay are you actually paying to host this?

Good idea to merge the Boxing forums into one - but just look at it. 21 threads on the front page started by the same guy (usually just linking to a video/tweet). 14 threads also ended by him too.

Lounge is dominated by the once-brilliant Flint Island and Red Samurai. Doby-Zhee needing attention, then starts a thread asking if people think he is also one of the 'lounge destroyers'.

Vicious circle.

The lack of normal threads make these ones more prominent, which puts people off starting normal threads.

I don't think they are that bad, if there was other stuff happening, but when they are the only topics up there it just looks odd.

I always like your threads, or at least the non politics ones. (I don't like anyone's political threads).

Yeah, and it all depends on what you like (no Adam Smith).

If Flint was doing 5 posts a day about Strike being a £1 coin, I'd be pleased with that content! Posting links to Daily Mail about celebrities walking to work, with Trail saying 'they need fucked' isn't doing it for me.

So I log on here, go to 'Boxing' - see 20 WesShaw threads linking to tweets so don't bother.

I switch over to 'Lounge', see 10 threads from Flint about walking to work and think 'nah' and just leave.

I see where you are coming from, and agree for the most part. There's a few posters here that have started threads that make me shake my head and wonder aloud "WTF are they doing. I can tell they are not good without even clicking on some of them just by the number of views to responses. I figure if a post has 20+ views and 0 responses, it's pretty much wasted bandwidth.

There’s four threads out of 30 like this and i find it so easy to skip threads that don’t take my interest. Also if there’s a topic you want to discuss why not start a thread seriously.

Yes , but do you go to a restaurant for the menu items you don't care for, or for the (perhaps smaller) number of dishes you like ?

Would you stop fucking women because the majority of them are ones you would never think of mounting ?

Just ignore the shit threads and shit posters and engage with the ones that grab your attention.

This place is no different than all the other messageboards out there. None are some real big deal, simply talk about what interests you. Yep, it really is just that simple.

Love music but won't be talking any rap, others can however. I never expect others to be concerned over what I prefer.

To wimper around with....others aren't doing what I want........nay!!!!!!!

Also, as others have alluded to, there's nothing stopping anyone from creating any type of thread they want. If the content isn't to your liking, make some that it.

Yeah, but if a bar is always full of dogs and the one next door has loads of hotties you might move on.

Do we really need to overact because of a minority viewpoint?
Of course we do, nazi. Don't you understand the zeitgeist? (no German). The offended minorities make the rules now in this world. The Purging of the forum of controversial subjects and spiky posters, turning it into a nice safe space and waiting for it to be slowly filled with warm kindness. A busy place where erudite posters cordially discuss the minutiae of life and broad and deep aspects of philosophy was long overdue. It is now part of the the rest of the world, instead of a place apart from the rest of the world.

I, for one, welcome the rounding up of those "Walking" threads and their transportation by cattle truck to their concentrated area but I think they could have been marked with yellow warning stars before the final solution. :lol:

Even before I saw this thread, I was rolling my eyes at it. OK, let's create enough semi-quality content that Flints crap doesn't matter. If not, I'll merge into a mega thread over the weekend.
Well he has a brief reprieve but it depends on whether or not enough content is being generated, which is down to anyone and everyone using this board.

Mate, I don't give a fuck what you do with his walking threads, I don't read them. Which goes for most of the threads on here now, unfortunately.
