Greetings citizens. Seriously though, don't be shy. If you vitis the forum and just lurk then do please join in the debate. The more points of view we have the more interesting the discussion for everyone. Sure, some comments can be a bit biting but don't be put off by that, and we'll expect you to argue your point but that's the fun really. By and large we're friendly enough, really we are, so don't just lurk, we'd love to hear from you.

The 90-9-1 rule applies on many forums, including this one I suspect.

Oh don't be cruel to the Tories, some of them do know the internet exists you know tongue.gif

Seriously though, I expect a lot of people are put off posting by the personal nature of the attacks on this forum. If they can ignore the attention seekers though there is plenty of scope for good debate and opinion.

Thanks, Simon. Glad you have all given us your blessing to say whatever we like.
Still no doubt some people will complain any time I post, or perhaps when a new member who also is weird joins, but hey.
Friendly in what way exactly? Are there services being offered? smile.gif

I would love to contribute to this forum, but like so many I just see personal attacks from a few people (mostly Penelope and xjay1337) that destroy the potential of the forum. If only they would stop attention seeking we would all be able to use this forum for fun, debates and exchanging ideas.

No doubt by speaking out I will be ridiculed and like others will be forced to ignore the forum. It's such a shame.

Hi Jo,

You'll tend to find, the more extreme the opinion, the more likely there will be objections.

Well Simon Kirby I am sure that Jo Pepper can now make comments being the OP.

But my slightly jesting comment to your kind welcome note still has me worried.
I had to look up Braud because I have never written the word. It still does not look right.
I am sure it sounds different in Hollywood.

Jo please keep posting, we need more people. I find I am posting less and ignoring a lot of posts as I find them inane or just plain nasty.

I've got to agree with this. Everyone has an opinion many of which are interesting and valid but some posters here seems to think they can ignore the points being made and either make fun of the posters or divert the thread to stop any reasonable ideas. Having been on the wrong end of this several times, I have given up trying to have a reasonable conversation.

I have been guilty of being a bit feisty in the past, I have never meant anything personally, but I don't like to think that I would have put people off. I agree with the previous statement, some of the posts on here make me want to tear my hair out, but other people like them. The problem is definetly too many of the same people posting. Not that hey should post less, just that we should encore more people to come. Welcom Jo, thanks for joining the thread!

Yes, I was subjected to personal attacks and insults and complained to Admin.
They did nothing about it so I changed my posting style.
Like I said before, If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!! tongue.gif
(PS Any comments I may have made about xjay were in jest, hence the "smileys". He can handle it anyway!! tongue.gif )

Welcome to the forum, don't stop speaking out because of one or two posters. There will always be people who are rude - lets just hope they grow up or move on.
