  This is just my opinion, an oservation, call what you will. But the forum seems to be attractting some weirder people than usual at the moment.

I'm finding it quite sad that a place where I loved to visit is now a place where I have trouble finding any relevent or intresting posts.

          I must agree.  It's as if some sort of cloud has descended over the
           forum,  leaving a lot of negativity.   sad.gif

Awww you guy's wub.gif  I'm not thinking of leaving it's just I'm finding it hard to post these days as I have to traul through loads of rubbish, nonsence and general chit chat before I get to anything of intrest.
I'm hoping it's just another phase the site is going through and it will pick up once the few who seem to spill out this drivell get bored and leave.

I tend to agree with Halo. I might take a break myself as I seem to have started writing a lot of drivel lately, and that's not like me. I'm a very serious person usually.

Funny thing? I've been thinking the very same thoughts. It's as if a wacko magnet has somehow been attached to this magical place.

That's one reason I began the "profile" thread. To me, it is so much easier to try to understand the age range/location of those who take the time to post their opinions, ideas. If that information isn't available, I am more likely to back off of a topic. If I realize that the individual is young, perhaps curious and yes, sometimes angry..... I tread more gently.

Been wondering if perhaps I shouldn't have returned to UM and have been as "opinionated" as I have been.  If you guys like? Blame the weirdness on ole N.

Halo, I can fully understand your point. However, unfortunately that's the price "we" have to pay for the balance the moderators have to find between being "heavy handed" and "non existant".

I remember a whole thread being started, the essence of which was too many posts having been edited and threads closed to the liking of several forum members (you not included, I must add  original.gif  ).

Sometimes my fingers itch to "moderate".  However, since this is an open discussion board unfortunately wading through posts that are uninteresting for some people are included in the package.

It's hard for a moderator, and I speak only for myself now, to find a balance.
What annoys me may be interesting for somebody else.  It's a fine line...

Let's just hope it gets better. I can guarantee the moderating team will do everything in its power to make it as easy as possible. However, good old input and acid replies to certain posts by members will do the trick as well in a lotof the cases... wink2.gif (One word, Aslan   laugh.gif  )

I have no idea why you have used my name? Or how I’ve supposed to offend your touchy, touchy religious views. But then that’s what they are - your views. People have an amazing gift; it’s called Free Will (it’s in most dictionaries). And everyone has the right to freedom of speech… such as your proving here.
But if your going to make reference to people, and what we have supposedly done, could you be more specific!  huh.gif

I HAVE MY OPINIONS  I AM NOT MAKING FUN OF THE PEOPLE  IM JUST SAYING THAT THOSE PARTICULAR THINGS ARE FAKE, AM I SAYING "OH YOU GUYS ARE RETARDS BECAUSE U BELIEVE IN NESSIE" ?????    NO  IM JUST SAYING WHAT I THINK  BUT DISCRIMINATION AGAINST CHRISTIANS ISNT FAIR

You still haven’t answered my question as to why you said, “that one’s from Kryso 2 more to come?”

It seems your one of those ‘people’ who are not happy unless you’re the centre of attention, throwing out random accusations (which you probably have no strong feelings about) but because you like to see the little counter going up, with how many people have looked at your little forum question!

Reading though I can see question which people have asked you, about accusations (such as the one I’ve asked you) and you haven’t answered them. You simply start off shouting about something else.

Everyone has a right to an opinion, that’s what makes having free will so great. But while expressing that opinion there’s no need, or right for you to be throwing around accusations. You say we are “DISCRIMINATION AGAINST CHRISTIANS.” Well congratulations, you’ve succeeded in discriminating against people on this site.

So what does that make you? Any better?

KC mentioned above that there is somewhat more negativity here these days, and CryptoFreak's accusations of religious discrimination certainly isn't helping.

I'm going to close this down before it gets completely out of hand.
