    Does this happen mostly on the “Chat” section?

    Most chit chat is posted in the bike forum anyway. I find that more annoying that who’s posted it.

    I ignore template threads, anything with xxxxxxtrackworld in the title, or “if you only watch one xxxxxx today”.

    I try to avoid anything by Druidh, as I find him to be a bit of a dick.

    However, I really like that scotroutes chap. Seems to have his head screwed on the right way.

    Phew! I’ve a pretty good idea I’m not one of them! 😉

    Thank you for your offer 2unfit, may I get back to you please? I’ll PM you within the next few days.

    As far as OT, it has taken me a while to figure certain online persona’s on here and tread with caution with certain topics and posters, to avoid the inevitable 🙂

    but then I see the “member” & think better of it

    There’s your problem; keep your eyes on the screen.

    Only the best threads get ‘accidentally’ posted on the bike forum, but then again this is about the forum & not bike or chat (did I just get away with that?)
    Oh & I chuckled at slackalice 😉

    I never notice til it’s too late and I discover I’ve replied to 650b-bike-seller or some other ****.

    I only ask as I’m always struck by the number of folk who will always pop up on threads about, say, politics but yet never post on the Bike forum at all. It does make me wonder why they’ve singled out STW as a recipient of their utterings – or maybe they also do the same in other subject-specific forums like Railwaytrackworld and Knittingneedleworld.

    To provide a sensible answer to the OP; I tend to ignore thread ‘types’ than posters.

    I try not to judge as some may not have the keyboard skills to convey their real personality, but a very small few consistently and without any doubt, manage to demonstrate they are total morons.

    However, they are far outweighed by the very funny/interesting/eloquent folk.

    Er, I hate to tell you this……

    …but druidh was an excellent contributor to the forum. Newer members likes scotroutes just aren’t in his league. IMO.

    Any threads remotely political as STW socialist worker party crew pop up spouting their sixth form Marxism – you know who you are!

    I ignore anything by cressers. It’s just tired and dull.

    Also a lot of project’s threads seem to be playing to a stereotype, but when he contributes to threads that aren’t about his pet hates he is pretty sound.

    Do you ignore certain contributers to this forum?

    While we all have the ability to do that,why bother, life and living is about listening to others,disliking others, sometimes accepting what they say, sometimes disagreeing,but usually a learning point comes out of most peoples comments.

    The problem is some people just develop a hatred for others sometimes for no rational reason, then try to recruit other to help them along in their mis guided thoughts about those persons.

    I am always struck by how folk are puzzled by the diversity on here but decide one type of posting is worse than an other and then pour scorn on the “others”. I am also surprised how often the right moan about the left as its a fairly broad cross section on here usually – you should count the high horse and hand wringer digs for example or look at your own post 😉

    Some folk discuss politics, some discuss rugby, some skiing , some tyre size. Its a diverse forum and its pretty easy to avoid topics you have no interest in. I dont feel the need to dis those who use the forum differently from me.

    I suspect everyone has posters they would not miss but i read all the posts on a topic but I do boycott topics.

    Indeed why can we not get more well reasoned ,mature , rational and deep insights likes that on the politics threads.
    Is disapoint 😥

    I would beg to differ with that.

    I think it’s largely male, white and from a broadly christian background.

    Within that demographic though it’s pretty diverse.

    It would appear that you have completely missed the point of my post. I can surely be “surprised” without feeling it’s wrong? I genuinely wonder what brought some of the posters to STW instead of some other place when many appear to show no interest in (or at least express an opinion about) cycling. With one major exception, other cycling forums I subscribe to don’t appear to have such a defined split.

    I assume only ernie does this??? he did answer once – I forget what it was but it was something along the lines of he did not care/was not interested in discussing bikes IIRC
    As for why who cares tbh he does ride which is more than some contributors do on here which surely must be as “surprising”.

    Damn you STW I stand doubly corrected now 😳
