I stated a fact.

You were/are ridiculing; something you appeared to object to.

Just like Facebook, conversations here tend to end up with bickering, the only difference is it take days rather than seconds.

Why would I object if it was true?

That is true, but then this is what this forum is about.

You objected to the rudeness, yet are one of the first to indulge in it.

Anyway, do you want to debate the OP or are you simply wishing to squabble?

That's not an argument, it's just contradiction.

But the contradiction can be the argument.

This 'debate' is a prime example of why I don't bother with this forum any more.

Like GMR, I presume you find Newbury forum members a bit below you! tongue.gif

I simply come on here because it is a distraction from other things I routinely do. It's just an innocent past time; to watch berks squabble ignorantly about unimportant things. tongue.gif I can't speak for others, but people's views on here do occasionally affect me and change the way I appreciate things.

What I find frequently the case is people who complain about attitudes, but do so in a manner that contradicts their position. Why do people feel the need to come here and slag it off! I have forums I don't bother with and deal with it by simply not bothering.

No - he moans about not being able to have a 'good debate' & then pointlessly engages in gainsaying.....

Thought I'd bump this one as the question perhaps needs answering again!
With it now reduced to bickering over mainly one subject by the few that remain and the resident wind up merchant Is there much point of this or other forums anymore?
Many of the past regulars have disappeared (even AC is rare now!) maybe because of this or maybe for other reasons but it seems that varied, lively, constructive debate is rare on here now.
Anyone else?

The resident troll has destroyed any constructive debate. EVERY one of us is racist in that one's tiny mind and any conversation inevitably leads to him / her / it accusing all and and sundry of being a white imperialist.

Perhaps best to leave him / her to it then and move on to pastures new?
