      I also believe that the few bigoted characters are fewer posters. I think only half of them are actually trolling though - there would be some element of humour there. Maybe it will out that these are devil's advocates messing us about - but Old Greg stumbled across one of our infamous contributors' identities - and unearthed him as someone with an agenda, which would be worrying if he had twice as many braincells.

      Agree that a lot should be in Light Relief - but sensible debate and maturely discussed random topics can still coexist happily with rate discussion in General.

      Did think of a mini picnic olympics thing - may stay indoors though due to the weather. Cheers DS23.

          I'm also a little annoyed that, while it's perfectly ok to ban someone for an Irish expression that seemed a little tame compared to some postings (while not necessarily having the whole picture behind that exchange - there could have been more to that)... it seems to have gone unnoticed that we have a small band of new joiners who are filling the board with xenophobic, bigoted commentary which I personally find more insiduous.


          Thanks - this is just my bit, quietly stated, in Light Relief.
          If I am included in this "small band of new joiners" then I appologise unreservedly.
          I originally joined this forum expecting to glean knowledge and make associations, I was however invariably sucked into (what I thought at the time was) the general flow.
          Being somewhat a student of human nature, I have invariably posted what are to me, leaders, merely to see where the discussion leads.
          I have stated several times in my posts that these are neither my own views, nor is this my own mind set.
          The results of many of my posts have led to riotous and amusing replies.
          I have come to realise though that most if not all of the biggoted responses are tongue in cheek.
          Many of us use this forum to break the monotony and to let of steam, as well as to give or gain advice.
          A board dedicated soley to technical to and fro's would, I believe not be nearly as popular as this one is.
          Our hosts are Quite right in removing those that overstep the mark, as this reflects back on themselves.
          I do however believe that a warning or Zeroing of their counts should be applied to bring them back into line rather than an automatic ban.

          As for this thread: I love it

              sense.

              That way you get to rant for 30 seconds and push the post count.

                I enjoy the ramblings and even some of the cut and pastes. I read most of this thread
