The Heart ripped from STW
some say *applause* but I say look down the list of topics in overview and not say meh.
Are you so incapable of entertaining yourself that you rely on other folk engaging in petty arguments to hold your interest? If you are finding the topics a bit bland them perhaps start one yourself about something in which you have a genuine interest. You might get some considered, intelligent responses.*

I’m sure you’re intelligent enough to work out what I meant by my post and indeed, the point Cheez0 is trying to make. I disagree with Cheez0 in as much as I think any forum is better without the arguing and bitchy content that seems to be ubiquitous nowadays. I also suggested (in a somewhat sarcastic fashion, granted) that a bike forum with threads about bikes is a more inviting place for folk that want to discuss (shockhorror again ; ]) bikes, new or old alike.
Don’t see what your prob is, fella. Quite simple really.Posted 5 years ago
Couldn’t have put it better and the proof is HERE
But they have a voice loud enough to taint the entire forum with their negativity. The people I am describing will all recognise themselves and they should think very carefully about what they contribute to our community in the future as their lead has now become very short, as SEVERAL have already found out in the last 24 hours.
Here endeth the thread.
looking at this thread and a few others; the psychology is interesting. There seems to be a pitch to fill the the space of the previous big hitters now they are banned.

Speaking as someone who has never separated a lizard from its penis, I’d have to agree that a new generation of personalities will emerge.
Yes, it’s sad that some have gone; yes it’s good to hear some new voices. Like most things, it’s cyclical (see what I did there?).Posted 5 years agoHerman ShakeMember
Fish fingers, n’ shit.
Messy night out?
I like how this thread is becoming a mild argument about the chat forum, it’s so wonderfully STW. There will always be soapboxes, offence, big (s)hitters and sometimes something constructive. It’s the mix of it all that keeps it interesting.
Maybe put up a wanted ad for a new Big Hitter? I seem to get responses there pretty fast, you may get a good deal on one that matches your frame.Posted 5 years agohugorMember
Some of these personalities can be irritating or intimidating at first but after a while they are predictable and to be honest amicable for me.Posted 5 years ago
TJ for all his faults added alot around here and once you let go of trying to argue helmets or red lights with him, you could have a good chat with him.
DS comes across to me as a very dry witty intelligent person. His opposing stance often enlightned a majority (way too left wing) stance on a controversy.
GW for me is a typical FIGJAM stereotype (**** I’m Good Just Ask Me). Once you understand this you accept that most of his posts evolve around this common basic principle it becomes entertaining and predictable rather than personal or offensive.
Personally I believe if you are threatened by these people then you have inherent personality confidence issues, and perhaps shouldn’t voice your opinion in a public forum where you may be outwitted or academically challenged. You’d be better off just lurking and being educated.
For me these personalities add to this virtual society.
