    Its also full of far right tropes

    Do you even know what the far right is? It’s not the conservative party.

    All this bandying round of accusations of things being far right etc. Just downplays how bloody awful the actual far right is and gives the ‘orrible gits power.

    Well, that’s subject to debate….as is everything 🙂

    And if the majority disagree with you, vocally and with a degree of piss taking, is that bullying?

    You came this thread. Made a series of slurs and now try to pick a fight when called out for the slurs. How about a bit of reflection?

    Nobody’s picking a fight. I come in peace brother tj.

    Am I now being “called out for slurs”? I thought we were having a light-hearted Friday chat 🙂

    I’m going to join BruceWee and go to the pub. You lot can try me in absentia.

    I still bike so much on road and off and love the diversity and depth on here, but the “same ten ****” cliche is making anything vaguely interesting on off topic get destroyed by the same bickering few.
    It is starting to become pretty toxic.
    Keep taking my money but I’ll be on other sites for a lot more of my time.
    Yes; could avoid the dodgier threads.
    There again maybe the mods could be curators instead of cops.

    I know what you mean. I stay out of threads where its obvious the same few will kick off again, but it does crop up all over the place, and always the same things repeated with no evolution of views over time.

    There are a handful of people who I’d happily block from appearing in my view of the forum if I could.

    FWIW, I tend to come on here for a bit of a distraction from other things, and largely try and either help people with advice, knowledge and the like, or just share what I know in a purely factual sense. I do my best to avoid getting drawn in the debating threads as best I can, not least as it is largely a matter of opinion and I’m frankly never been one for debating things in that sense (clearly never went to a public school or was in a debating society).

    Here is another thought.
    Are we just past peak social meedja / online forums / interactions online?
    Are we moving back to (gasp) the real world?

    I reckon another five pages of hand wringing before the lock.

    I think its more a case of us being left behind as the yoof trend to different platforms
