Some forums .....
« on: July 22, 2010, 01:39:19 pm »
seem to attract trouble, don't they?

I cannot believe that people who have probably never met, and never will, can be so bitchy and horrible to each other.  Two horsey ones I have been on have had trouble,and it makes you wary of posting anything for fear of upsetting someone.  Now I notice, a local website in the village, has gone the same way.  There are grown men squabbling over comments one has made, and then its got out of hand.  Its a bit worrying being local, as they can probably work out who each other are, and may meet face to face to sort it out.  People get banned from the forum, and then appear back as someone else and start again.

At least everyone on this forum appear sane and normal, which is something to be grateful for.

All right, Wizard, most of the people on here appear sane?  We had better not start insinuating some are not, in case we start trouble on this forum too!!!

I have never seen any trouble on here, or if there has been, it has quickly been stamped out.

Oooh, we've had our share of zoomers and nasties, as well as a few simple misunderstandings and misinterpretations. Dan's usually pretty quick to deal with them though.

I ran one for a while, then someone complained about something that had been written and there was a big stooshy about it.  it was  upsetting me so much I handed the admin to someone else who was less involved and not so soft as me.

The local forum I mentioned is amusing me - they are trying to get the people involved to apologise and play nicely.  Well .....thats just added fuel to their fire, and they are still sniping.  Calling each other names now.  These are grown men!!  And some of the forum members are so fed up they have left ......I only ever browse, and certainly do not want to be embroiled in trivial arguments such as they are at the moment.  The worst thing is, they cannot see how silly they are being, and no one will give way!!

Some of the other forums I use have been through that - on one the admin was so heavy handed that all the users upped and left, and another one has just had a huge dust up and a kicking out of the clique that had formed that was off putting to any new members.

Not like here though - I like it here  ;D You all seem sane, nice and helpful  ;), and talk about things that I understand ( like septic tanks and farm machinery ) and things I would like to know about ( livestock ).
I'm just hoping that I bring more to the forum than I take, but stand by for daft questions!  :D

 ;D ;D I agree TAS is special. Generally - the danger is in written on communication on screen you can get it all wrong and go in weird directions. I've had huge falling outs with folks who yelled at me per email endlessley - would they have spoken to me like that in person or on the phone? I don't think so! It does take some smoothing over sometimes but you also make great new friends! :&>

Well, I have met a few people on here in person, and they are all as nice in the flesh, as they are on here.
