      Unwarranted hostility towards newbies should be a bannable offence IMHO

      This. Plus the accounting section no longer needs to exist. All you really need is a bot to shout "have you asked your accountant?" every few minutes.

      I joined in the hope of finding some support, help and general chat about contracting. Sadly what exists is a ton of abuse in general, pretty much the same in the business forum and very little elsewhere. Mostly from the same clique.

      Shame really as there are still some nuggets of gold in there occasionally.
      Have you tried switching it off and back on again??

          Is it true you eat a dozen doughnuts each time you post?

            It used to be good banter with good information as well - these days it is indeed a clique who are abusive in the main. This is supposed to be a professional forum, but the idiots have taken over hence the demise.

            More lollipop action is needed.

              No - this is general.

                  You should try getting married and get the benefit of regular sex.

                  I hope no-one points out that Wilmslow will get as much sex married as single. Its just a ploy to get him married and make him as miserable as the rest of us.....

                    Generally, it does, like the old helpdesk mantra of "have you tried rebooting", apply to 80% of cases though.

                    I agree with this sentiment but General has always been a wild place since I was lurking. What I have noticed is that this has spread over into the professional forums, which could arguably be moderated more strongly. The sockie accounts don't help though as there are trolls on here which seem intent on winding up the likes of NLUK, who I believe is genuinely trying to be helpful and tries to restrain his disdain for people who cannot be bothered searching.

                    Wilmslow and Suity are special cases who make rods for their own backs though.
