    Forum Pissing Matches

    Hi all,
    Now I love the banter and general conversations that can be had on the forum and long it may live.
    However it seems, especially of late, that threads are being consistently hijacked by particular members with wanton rambling,personal attacks and agenda driving which I am finding a little tiresome.
    I'm very happy with the forum, how does everyone else feel?

    I am happy with the forum too but I don't understand your reasoning behind this post because you are, I feel, only going to perpetuate the things you take umbrage with.

    @Reindeer.
    I don't know which threads/posts you are talking of when it comes to personal attacks, but suffice to say that, at times, some comments may be taken out of context unless you actually know the members concerned.
    Not saying it doesn't happen, but in my view, it is rare for there to be real malice. Usually a piss take going on behind the scenes

    There's a few members that I wouldn't miss if they weren't members anymore.

    I agree that it's not in our own interests to be seen "swiping" at one another on a public forum.

    Equally I agree that good natured banter between well established forum-buddies might, when seen out of context, confuse those who are unaware of the depth and strength of the forum friendships many forum members enjoy.

    I find myself checking in most days-just to see the latest banter, and have laughed, and frowned in various degrees

    What I'm saying is; as long as we all ensure the focus is forwards, fun and flippant where appropriate, and serious when not, I think we're doing a good job.

    My 2c worth and I up that with one chewed pencil

    @ Reindeer, It's a shame you feel like that, but personally I would hate to see any heavy policing being enforced more than anything. I like this place because it's so free & friendly. I haven't struck or noticed the issues you refer too.

    Heres what I feel... whatever obsessive compusive disorder you suffer from that compels you to read/comment on/instruct others on how they should communicate needs some form of treatment.

    As somebody recently said to me... "people have the right to live their lives badly" its not your job to tell them how they should communicate and in this situation its not compulsary for you to be involved.. so don't be..

    There are plenty of other threads that may suit you more...

    Log out for a while and go hunting, works for me. Usually 3-4months does it. Then I'm back because I need something..then I end up visiting the dog section out of boredom and the cycle starts again!

    I think you need to realise many of these members actually know each other really well, the Sika show get together, I think,is in its third year and the same core will be there this weekend with wuite a few new guys, once you personally know these guys you can better judge them and understand their rants and bullshit a little better. At the heart of it is still, hunting and shooting in its many forms, chill out and enjoy and make a point of meeting a few.
