Where did all the love go?
MTFU you jeyer!!!!Posted 8 years ago
The sun is out, people will be cheering up in there droves.
Or maybe the better weather is making people ride more and it is cutting into their forum time, making them grumpy. Or it is exam season, making them grumpy.
I usually think things are worse when I am grumpy (today I am grumpy) so perhaps should not comment.

i only use this forum because of the helpful and friendly nature of the people who reply to my various questions and such things but i have noticed over the last couple of weeks that its not as friendly as before and now this morning i come on to find threads closed and people complaining about the use of the work jey! come on STW where has the love gone>?Posted 8 years agomildredMember
No, I know exactly what Gohan means – I’ve noticed a lot more rudeness,insults, downright nastiness since the hack.
I started a thread a while ago about phrases that irritate. It was meant as a humourous dig, yet someone came on trying to provoke something, making assumptions about my riding skill and ability – all based on my irritation at the word Huck.
There’s a lot more trolling these days. To be fair I now try to stick to classifieds as any serious queries just fall apart in the greta STW ego battle.Posted 8 years agopantsonfireMember
gohan this forum is probably at its mellowest ever. I have been hanging round under various names since about 2003 and at times it has been like going to watch bear baiting. Trolling is also pretty rare these days probably because there are only so many forums a spotty get living in his mums spare room can patrol.Posted 8 years agoSpongebobMember
What is this word “jey”? I have also seen a word spelt “ghey”.
It’s real confusing, coz the word “gay” is pronounced the same as these tow other words are they not?
Modern slang is so dumb! If someone is stupid, call them stupid, not “jey” or “ghey”. That way people won’t mistake them for being homosexual.
Slang often originates from the street, soit’s just bxllshit anyway.
Who cares if someone is gay anyway!

LOL expect Rudeboy-he’s quite amusing and is the Robin Hood of the forum lol
Do you mean he slips on a pair of tights and hangs about with other men in forests ? 😉
FWIW, I think that the forum is a lot friendlier since the addition of the emoticons as now you can tell if someone is being ironic/sarcastic or if they mean to be arsey.Posted 8 years agoAdamWMember
As someone who has no sense of humour at all, can you explain the joke to me ? Is that you’re poking fun at Gohan because he’s a straight guy
I see your problem and will attempt to clarify. The joke was in the phrase ‘love’. I used the word ‘love’ in two meanings. The first meaning, which I believe Gohan stated was more of a brotherly or fraternal love. I then used humour to add in a second form of ‘love’ which is usually denoted to refer to either coupling (as in an intimate partner) or even sexual. Hence a simple swap of meanings. This occurs a lot in humour; I suggest you read up on it.
This form of joke in some forms is known as a ‘pun’. Often, in Terry Pratchett’s books it is known as a ‘pune’ for some reason which I do not understand; I’m open for elucidation.
The reason for said pun was the complaint regarding the mis/use of the phrase ‘ghey’ and ‘jey’ or whatever silliness was abounding at the time and repercussions from people (I would guess including me). Hence the thought to produce said ‘pun’.
Obviously, not knowing Gohan I could not say whether the person in question is male/female/gay/straight/bi/asexual/black/white/any_other_colour etc. I don’t assume. ‘Cute’ could refer to any sex as far as I’m concerned. You appear to assume however, unless, of course, you know this person and I’d have to take your word for it.
Did that clear it up?Posted 8 years ago
Personally, I thought it was quite funny, actually.
Well I couldn’t tell if it was funny. Because apparently accord to the PC brigade, it isn’t funny if you poke fun of someone’s sexuality, even if you make it very clear that you are only joking.
Or is acceptable one way but not the other ?
Oh dear, this sense of humour stuff is so difficult to understand 😕Posted 8 years ago
