I used to enjoy stw
I’ve realised tonight that I don’t enjoy coming on STW anymore – it seems that gone are the days of decent discussions, banter and close to the bone mickey taking and now it’s populated by self righteous whingers who take offense at the slightest thing.Posted 3 years ago
I used to spend time learning from some threads and having a laugh at others but now 5mins a week is about all I spend here. I spend far more time on forums related to my other interest which still inform, educate and entertain in great amounts.
What happened to STW?
I don’t know who you are but congratulations on your Flounce.
See you in 6 months when you miss it all!
Edit: OP, you will learn something from this thread, at least, I presume, that one never announces wavering loyalty.
You just piss off for a bit and come back for nostalgia threads.Posted 3 years agobuzz1024Member
I’m not having a flounce – it just seems that there’s not the same amount of funny threads now, too many threads asking the same questions (ffs there is a search facility) too much whinging and hardly anything informative. There are a few decent threads but a lot less than there used to be.Posted 3 years ago
Maybe it’s only me that feels this but interested to know what others think.duntmatterMember

allthepies, you’re exactly the kind of pinko doormat that we ALL despise on here. When I’m fantasising in front of a mirror about crushing maggots, or parking where the **** I like, it’s your crying face that I imagine.
This is the best thing on STW. 😆Posted 3 years agowigglesSubscriber
There was a thread that genuinely helped to stop someone committing suicide and featured a real “bobs your uncle” moment.
What more can you ask?
Do STW threads need to provide formulae for turning your turds into gold or curing your venereal diseases before they start to impress you?Posted 3 years agocbikeMember
They have all got younger and don’t have much life experience, died, are out riding, got banned, got bored, or got promoted to jobs with no internet access. Half of them asking about cars/tyres/baby buggies/tents and other crap are astroturfing. I’m a wee bit sceptical of some of the “look at me and my dire circumstances threads. Sorry if genuine but actual proper agencies exist to help you.” Mountainbikers know **** all.
If i found out about it on Singletrack 7 years ago I don’t even bother to contribute these days. I just assume its public domain and can be found with google. if someone can’t find it, hell mend them.
You are it. Go!Posted 3 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber
Singletrack forum used to be like a local pub in a rough part of town, full of characters helping one another, having a crack, giving and taking the pee out of one another with the occasional bar room brawl
I enjoyed the banter.
The place is more like the canteen in a corporate office block now. The characters have been swept away or made to behave in a more socially acceptable way.
Some turd even complained about a Friday Kylie post a few weeks ago and it was removed!
Buzz is right, it’s shit these days.Posted 3 years agogoggMember
I would have had to report the thread if no one posted a pic of her in the gold hotpants from the spinning around vid…but she is starting to show her age now.
Heretic burn him!!
She still looks good to me and don’t forget that as we age, she does too (although still looks a darn sight better than me), which means we don’t become diry old men lusting after the latest pop tart who is young enough to be our daughter/grandaughter!
