Sorry for getting all uppity on HS Forum

It was just too much for a Sunday morning

I used to enjoy going on the site on my day off and having a little giggle. That moron just wound me up this morning.

I know you guys are working on the problem and kudos to you for doing so, just please hurry.

I dont mind the arguments, and the abuse on the site,  it makes me laugh. what gets me is idiots that have nothing better to do and just post drivel (like pictures of themselves).

I always disagreed with Difflocks  "members only" area, but I kinda get the point now.

I know you cant account or regulate for a member being an idiot or just plain boring and I dont have any answers but please do something, its really ruining a good forum IMO.

I've got a bet going that Tony can last a couple of days before he wants to physically club someone. :devilish:

s'ok, things have got too bad that there isn't much room for going easy on anyone publically even if they are mates or right morally. I trying soooo hard to give him a way out and back down. lol.

Wait till we can get a more child friendly set of guidelines drawn up, then no one will have an excuse for not knowing where they stand.

This are going to have to heavilly moderated for a while i think, even if it means putting the 'banter' on a back burner for a bit.

People can help by walking away, and not goading the insecure or the illiterate (Matt!!!!!.......) and will see what happens after a bit.

Members forums are ok to a degree, but you still get rows cos anyone can join and lots people think they are funny and liked when they arn't and think they can just stroll in on a couple of mates who are have a friendly ding dong.

Blog work better on other forums i hang around on, cos you can have a private club that you can have a good bitch to selected others on, without causing shit on the forum.

IDEA

Brian and Frasiers forum (Scottishmudclub) has a banterbox. Its basically live chat.

We use it to just have a banter.
The history is only about 20 or so posts long, which can be only about 5 minutes old on a good night

That way the forum threads stay on topic and interesting and any scuffles are done on the night and no one apart from whos on line at that moment can witness it.

Admins still have the option to delete posts on banterbox as well as ban members or Anons

Everyone has strategies for dealing with people/situations. I spoke at length with some Scottish members today, but all we ended up doing was laugh till we nearly wept. Iit seems that there are two things( to me any how )which help.

1. Try and actually meet... Face to face all the members I gave net have not been remotely ad I imagined them... I fully accept this does not work for woodzie... He actually is a foul arsed lunatic... :D

2. George may be many things... But he could never be accused of being dull. The spike your commy thread was the funniest jape I have been involved with for ages.
My suggestion is when " chatting" with George, imagine your dealing with a high court judge... Essentially alive, possibly facing the right direction , but not quite in touch with reality  :D

What do you expect from a Yugoslavian American living in England?  He's forgotten most of the folk he's met, it's what he does.

Next time he's up here, I'll throw him on the fire as a bit of kindling...
