Goddam Boxed I was going for 40 points in 2019.

But all is good, a shootout is what's needed to reignite the division .

A bit like the super 6 all those years back.

Is it actually becoming a problem? Outside of the Aussie bickering, I've not paid much attention. Any examples?
Mainly the Election/London Bridge attack/ new Corbyn thread or anything vaguely political.

Aussie bickering is annoying but at least it comes in waves. This is relentless.

Not saying they should be silenced or anything. Everyone has the right to post what they want. Just starting to feel like a BNP forum some days.

I'll have a look and maybe a word to the team, problem is 1. I don't want to continually do stuff to stifle activity - we're hurting enough the last 12 months or so as is. 2. various platforms seem to attract various things - twitter/reddit seem to be very left wing, CHB apparently is right wing (although I'd not say we were far right), and have a healthy-ish mix of views. We're also very pragmatic here, and it probably is a case that right wingers make threads about topics more than left wingers.

I would say the vast majority of the forum now are mostly centrists with a few views one way or the other.

I assumed the latest Corbyn thread is just satire though.

May I also say that this thread is genuinely the only safe place in this forum.
It’s full of right wing, racist nutters out there. Full of em.
I have noticed that the lounge seems to be getting more on the side of conspiratorial tribalistic anti-Black, anti-Jewish, anti-immigrant stuff from an ostensible political conservatism demographic, but it's so bad that I can't tell if a lot of the comments are deliberate Jeselnikian humour, where the joke is "I know this is bad." or if it's actually good faith remarks that are representative of their actual opinions. I was curious if the moderation had taken note of it anywhere when I started seeing holocaust denial remarks and black IQ remarks coming out of the same handful of posters, but it's always a judgment call how much policing is helpful of that sort of thing. I've seen the tide turn from a person or two who are mostly ignored to a moderation battle of wills where that person or two become the loudest group of assholes on the forum, constantly getting in some way or another to spout nonsense.

I've not noticed half of that (I've not been on much lately). If it's a problem or you feel it needs looking at, the report function/raising it privately can draw the mod team's attention to it. It's a very fine line though, like you said. TBH holocaust denial is surely doing more to make that poster look a moron than anything else. Surely!?!

It's not really a problem for me, Iffy, I just feel like if we can have our own forum for "British Boxing" we should be able to have a holocaust denial forum too. Fair is fair, mate.

We are about to start a special tournament, welcome to all, as is the regular competition. It will be off and on until the second of January and appear in the title while on. It will emphasize speed over all else. If participating, use whatever means necessary to determine the answer and do not feel bound by any honour system. Participants need only guess one film per post without editing the post. Make as many posts as you like. This is a shootout. There will be reasonable leeway on titles, as long as it seems clear you recognised the source. Example: If you say "Ways of the Dragon" instead of "Way of the Dragon" or "Expendables" instead of "The Expendables" or even "All Is Quiet On The Western Front" instead of "All Quiet On The Western Front" it will be obvious you recognised the film and it will be credited to you. Points will only count for the tournament, not for the all-time regular competition points.

It will be the first GTMSBT Shootout Tournament, in honour of nine years of happy fun time. The Lightning Tournament in no way is legally the same as the Shootout Tournament. For legal reasons. Good luck, hope to see any of you there. Bring your own whatever.


Shootout Tournament BEGINS! :fire
