    It seems there are two distinct types.
    Those who love to lob in an incendiary racist/homophobic/mysogonistic rant, and those who constantly apply those labels in ad hominem attacks to justify their pristine worldview.

    Is it just that everyone's pretty bored with their lot and see this forum as a means to let of steam and have a bit of fun? Or are chess players by default a particularly morose aspi bunch who have mostly undergone humour bypass surgery?

    Seriously? I can't get anyone to debate the hypocrisy of debating styles that have flourished and taken hold over these forums to choke any opinion contrary to a perceived righteous orthodoxy!?

    ............a perceived righteous orthodoxy!?

    Doesn't that differ with the individual. Your righteous orthodoxy probably differs with mine. I agree that ought not alter common courtesy, or dictate debate styles.

    Complaining about the quality of the debates on this Forum is an ancient tradition that has been observed since I've been on it and before.

    It is what it is.

    True, but one could always live in hope that some could try and lift their game a bit and contribute more than just 1 or 2 arguments before the thread devolves into Yo Mama!

    Oh boy, most days there's something to literally get me LOLing. Granted there is certain cringe factor. A couple of recent examples (names changed to save embarrassment)

    zoolandsi: a tirade about people giving other people funny looks, how wrong it is when people look funny and how some people just don't want other people to look at them in a funny way, boohoo.

    azkatgroaner: people that believe in non-coercive health care want to spit in the faces of cancer babies while laughing heartily.

    (name and sex changed in this one to doubly save embarrassment)

    ms Ann Thrope Schiziod: make a point that what happens on a private web site is a matter for those that moderate and run that site and you will be charged with being a woman abuser.

    Z, K and F don't ever change, the material you blokes come up with, it's gold, satire with the dial turned to 11. It is satire right? never mind, just keep doing it.

    It's the only way I can read it. But I have to tell you its hard going some days. It's all done with such earnestness and conviction you forget it's satire sometimes. Also I haven't taken any mind altering substances for 15 years now. It was much easier to see the funny side back then, stoned. I must praise the minds that have created the online presences you reference. It takes a certain genius to never break out of character and maintain the rage.

    Yes, but now the kicking ball is the radical left because they are in power and destroying the world

    It's not as much fun as when Bush was in office.

    Meh. Reference to a street sign is no less stupid or lowbrow than reference to an astrological sign.

    Just for that remark, you're a thirteen-year-old jock turd.

    You also don't know how forums work. This is not IRC.

    HTH; HAND.

    There are actually three distinct types.
    The third being "paid Gov’t and Corporate Internet Trolls"


    I quote,

    " You know them…

    Their mission has nothing to do with national security, fighting terrorism, and catching criminals. Their mission is to distort public opinion and spread propaganda in order to generate a ‘consensus reality’ – and they are responsible for polluting the internet with much of the garbage in comment sections, Facebook groups, forums and bogus blog posts.
    They jump into productive online discussions and civil debates, and undermine them, ruin them, with uninvited insulting, racist and inflammatory comments If only it stopped there." Sounds like some posters in the debates forum

    "The secretive GCHQ and JTRIG training manual which was leaked via Glenn Greenwald and Ed Snowden show an even dirtier side to our governments’ new ‘digital Stasi’. Their report means that the public can finally put an ugly face on this disease which is ruining the internet"

    “Among the core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are two tactics:
    (1) to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets; and (2) to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable."

    I see a few posters here who fit this description to a tee. One in particular.
