    any illusion of "irreparability" or "destruction" is only in yer mind...

    it's not real...

    You are of course entitled to your persepctive that the forum is in an "irreparable" state; however, in articulating it I think you are overplaying your hand and sound somewhat petulant and a bit silly to be perfectly honest.

    Correction: "There [are] always positive and negative threads and posts going on."

    Thanks for being "perfectly honest" which means you've decided to become part of the solution rather than the problem. ~GB

    For a forum to be vibrant and active, positive and negative influences need to be balanced. A predominance of either will drive away readers and wreck the forums. Readers - in this forum at least - come here expecting entertainment.

    Which this post isn't. I'm feeling boring this morning.

    Now please correct me if I am wrong but shouldn't it read: "I'm feeling bored this morning"
    Not " I'm feeling boring this morning"?

    Hope you get the humor in me trying to correct your grammar. 😉

    Kind Regards,
    Bill

    I got it, thanks VR. 🙂

    Actually it was "boring" I meant. I'm not feeling bored at all, I'm feeling the urge to annoy people by boring them. 😀

    In fact it has been lomng since there was a day when the whole first page had last posts at the same date.

    But digging won't help. I think the last time was the Trevalanche in January 2015.

    To be perfectly honest, your 'January 6' decision might have been part of the "solution". 😉

    A post which on the surface is a civil thank-you, but the sting "you've decided ..." is a direct statement that divegeester is a problem. Then there's the suggestion that the poster is organising a solution project and divegeester has joined that project.

    I didn't read a civil thank-you. I read a combination of self-aggrandisement and attack on another poster.

    The General Forum is not a place for anyone to claim the moral high ground. We're all in the soup together.
