We've gone elsewhere

I view of the current atmosphere in this board, some of us have found a chat board somewhere else where things are very much like they used to be on here.
PM me if you'd like to know where we can be found.

I wouldn't be James, you used to hang out there too.
In fact it was so dead over there they should be sending out some presents as a thank you for the traffic.

Re: We've gone elsewhere

It's very sad - but some of the current posts appearing in here... Angry
The description of this forum is

The place for general chat and off topic banter. Liable to contain atrocious puns.

You couldn't describe some of the current posts as either general chat or banter. Angry

Re: We've gone elsewhere


I hate to state the obvious but in this or any other forum there is no limit to the number of threads everyone can start,
and therefore one or two more serious ones has NO effect on all the others.
Its not as though PN set limits, and the limits were being taken up by just serious ones.
As one moderator so rightly pointed out, then if anyone does not like the title of a thread then: dont go on it.
I see threads that sometimes dont interest me, but guess what I dont barge in on them and then start whinging.
This all reminds me of a couple of kids who want to play ball, but rather than share the playground they want the entire
playground to themselves.  Life doesnt work like that.    A public forum is for ALL PN members, not just the few. 
If you can find a forum online that you can have all to yourselves then good luck.

Re: We've gone elsewhere

Amazing how some users can get away with accusing other members of being childish and others get banned when all they post is a  Lips are sealed emoticon.

@Wildrose Jev did not mention you by name but you believe that the cap fits and then barged in on his post to whinge. I'm fed up by your posts and do not wish to be educated by your twisted view of things any more.

Re: We've gone elsewhere


I didnt really need to get a calculator out to put 2 and 2 together.
Suggestion:  rather than have all this ill-feeling (more on your part
than mine) then why dont we just agree that if you dont like my few
posts then you wont access them.
I`m not exactly forcing you to read them, am I?
That way we can continue with a peaceful life.
I think anyone would say it is childish if ppl stomp off from a forum
just because they dont particularly like one poster or their views.
If the guys in here posted some sports threads...  then would you not
say the same if I stomped off just because I hate sport?
I wouldnt expect others not to like them, but I wouldnt read them cause
sports dont interest me, but I wouldnt leave the forum because of it.

Re: We've gone elsewhere

I agree with wildrose, This is all just so stupid and wildrose is the grown up here, The moderators have already said there peace which is very fair to everyone, Im supposed to be looking up to some members as they are older!! Tiz laughable Grin

Re: We've gone elsewhere

It would perhaps be wise if everyone were to tone down the level of emotion here – describing things as being childish, stupid and so forth won't get anywhere but antagonise other members.

For the public record, the emoticon business was the last of our concerns when banning the member. As of course you will be well aware because you've clearly been in contact with him, so please don't be awkward jelv by trying to spread misinformation.

That is an absolutely hilarious comment to make given the complaint that many of us have over what's been happening in here!

Re: We've gone elsewhere

Hell of a job being a mod in a difficult forum, lightness of touch usually works best and relying on the disapprobriation of the members.  There will always be serious disagreements, banging their heads together verbally and temporary bans for all parties involved (regardless of guilt) soon makes those with a modicum of intelligence stop replying to inflammatory posts, once those who post inflammatory stuff are identified they can be eased out of the forum.
