Where is chit chat going?

I am getting fed up of reading people's rants and grumbles on here....................... please can someone post some humour, or light topics as it says is the purpose of this Forum area?
It is getting much too much serious [apologies for the bold]

Sad and I want to be  Smiley

Re: Where is chit chat going?

Perhaps just a cull of 'soapbox' type topics?  Fair enough to bring up a topic once, but to continue starting new threads on the same theme is annoying.

Any guesses who we might have in mind?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Yes, Maurice - those soapbox ones are the ones that annoy me..................... I don't mind people airing views but repeating yourself gets very very very boring.

One soon learns who has something worth saying (and who doesn't).  Crazy
At least in the "unread" list you can see who started a topic and who was the last poster; saves a fair bit of effort sometimes.  Wink

Re: Where is chit chat going?

The problem with fanatics, is that they usually don't see the ill-feeling they're causing, normally affable members find themselves becoming uncharacteristically unpleasant.
As someone who (he said modestly) quite often tries to add a bit of levity to this forum, I have to agree with all so far, the forum is heading in a downward spiral.

I hate people who only post to agree with what everybody is saying, without adding anything useful.

[me=James_G]also promises to try to post some irrelevant guff too.[/me]
...in fact, shouldn't we have a "guff" board on the new layout?

Wouldn't fancy seeing folks do that outside pub doorways - its bad enough as they are.
