Chill out for God's sake...


Recommended Posts

Is there a thread that goes by on this bloody forum these days without people getting all sensitive and touchy?


I've just binned a relationship because of constant whining, over sensitivity to innocuous comments and observations and the like. And I find myself looking at this forum less and less because it's getting the same way (probably a good thing in some respects).


Whilst it might well be symptomatic of our country at large to get more and more like this, I used to enjoy taking refuge here as it's always been full of friendly chat about topics I love. So please can every body take a chill out pill, smoke a spliff or get drunk. Anything as long as we can all take life (and especially ourselves!) a bit less seriously.


Or I'll have to take up knitting or something and find a knittiing forum.

Yep I agree with the sentiments herein.

I get enough aggro at work and am heartily sick of logging on to BlatChat for some R & R only to see another thread with people hurling childish abuse at others, especially when they hide behind an insulting 'nom de plume'.

I think I'll go and have another beer now!

I was going to post it on specific threads that highlight why I don't believe it's just me being a girl. But thought it'd generate more of the same.


I'm all for disagreements. I relish a good argument and disagreement and can be as cantankerous as anyone. Read some of my other stuff (corporal punishment etc) to see.


But I get the feeling that too much is getting a bit off the "humour"/"good natured" side and more onto a ****ty side that I think could easily continue to degenerate and end up with people not posting here who are massively valuable members of our community. I've seen it happen on other sites and it'd be a shame for it to happen here.


And I've also noticed myself spending less time here which has to indicate something (apart from me getting my car back and, perhaps, getting a life as some might level at me smile.gif).


Then again, maybe it is just me.


PS What's Watneys 'Red Barrel'?

Why don't we have a new forum for b*tchy arguments? You know, a bit like the MX-5 / MG-F owners forums... THen, if want a good personal argument becaus eyou miss shouting at your partner, you'll know where to go.


For the rest of us, I agree - take a suitable quantity of muscle relaxant (whilst still being legal) and let the world go by without the myocardial infarction.

I've just binned a relationship because of constant whining


and here's me thinking it was your unhealthy obsession with your car...






ps as an illustration of how easy it is to write an apparently offensive posting that is clearly meant in jest, please see above. so there. cool it folks, if you feel you need to squabble, take it elsewhere.

What a splendid idea, all the children could play together!

Then there would be no need for churlish threats to 'twat' to one's IP on who is doing what and when.

Reminds me of a line in an Ian Drury song, "I've got ALL their names and addresses."
