    What is with this forum lately as can't anyone post something without someone making a snide remark and/or wanting to start an argument?

    I’m all for a bit of friendly banter but seems to be getting way out of hand by a few.

    Smurf it's the first post chancers that make people's blood boil. None of the regular contributors get flack do they?

    Overtired.:rolleyes:


    Smurf Sometimes this place can be a little too 'soft and fluffy', even the trolls and spammers used to get welcomed. I'd rather people spoke their mind instead of being fake. We're all big boys.

    Yes Tol, we are, with the exception of Shazzy whom I suspect may be female. I honestly think the biggest downside of any forum is the anonymity, people can run their mouths and say pretty much anything with balls the size of coconuts as they are well hidden behind a screen.

    Of course when you can not look someone in the eye and see their reaction to you words and behavior it's a lot easier to be a total w*nker sometimes without even realizing as you can not see the tell tale signs change in their expressions.

    I personally go by the rule of I would not say something on here (or any forum) that I would not say to you sat across a table in a pub.

    Trolls will always be there and there will always be s*it tossed about a forum. If you can't take it don't dish it and stay out. But as for topic starter, Mr Smurf, with some 10'000 posts more than anyone else can you truly say all of those have been friendly and of educational value?

    Hmmmmmmmmm...................................

    It's open forum and people like to speak there mind!sometimes it isn't right but to them maybe it is!where all,different and from different backgrounds!!!if we all was the same it would be boring world and debates would be dead!
    Now I'm not having a go smurf but a few week back we had a debate about my van being at the garage having my new system fitted which 3 weeks later the van and system was at the garage in bits!nearly costing me new contracts
    I commented that I wasn't going to pay and you replied saying smugly I'm not a nice person! That was your view
    What I'm getting at sometimes people read a post quickly type a reply without thinking or just the view which there entitled to!
    The thread surf is it the one about the canvasser?

    Doesnt bother me that much as long as they can take as good as they get.

    I must admit, i like the smurf jokery you contribute and i like to play with it, I like the regulars on here, you are a good bunch and you are the ones i listen to, the odd snide remark is noticable but it only reinforces the fact that other regular members are better decent folk worth taking the time to comment upon
