I'll probably be back


I think I'll probably return to the 5 live message board, but I'm just a bit weary. It really is the same arguments endlessly. I think I'll create a new identity and creep back in. It'll be interesting to see whether I get on with the same bunch of people again. It'll be an interesting experiment actually.

You won't be able to stop yourself. by the way I think you're out of premod in anycase. Certainly the post that got you into trouble is back on again.

Weary is an excellent term to apply, regarding the boards.

I'm finding it easier and easier to just log out and be done these days, and glad that work restricts it even more.

Load of old wind-bags some of them, but all the btter folks are beginning to blog, so not all bad.

I hope you do come back, Six. But I agree that the boards have gone downhill somewhat, thanks to a handfull of idiots gone mad.

Hi Six, I hope you do go back. I know the problem I have faced recently has been the boredom of the rehashing of the same sorry old arguments. It's one of the reasons I tend to stick to the more trivial stuff these days. The nuts from both extremes seem to stay away. The Hosts have deliberately decided to clear out the more vociferous posters. I think they realise they have bitten off more than they can chew.

The Operation Ore thread of a couple of months ago was surely a golden moment for the Boards but probably not as glittering if you were potentially in the firing line from the lawyers of those accused. If you look at the strictly regimented way the airtime itself is regulated on Five Live the MBs stick out like a sore thumb. They must think its like being dear old Uncle Julius. Get the Gauls under control and the damn Germanic tribes start up. Maybe we should think of ourselves as a little province of Fivelivia that the Empire can't control. Perhaps we should invent a battle cry and all call ourselves variations on a theme of Spartacus for a day. This red wine's good... Night, night.

I will be back, I'm sure, but I can't be arsed with it at the moment. I need a battery recharge, so I'm laying off. I'm going to put a little bit more effort and research in to my blog.

I also do need to do a days work, I've got a few things on the go at the moment that need my attention and I can't really spend too much time buggering about with the likes of Coger.

Come back if you can. Otherwise we've surrendered the boards to the nutters.

BTW I've been posting there on and off for over 5 years so I'm well peed off with being blocked so vociferously when the likes of Coger, Wendy and Majority_Phil can post vile racist filth. It seems that whatever I do they spot me and pre-Mod me after about 2 posts...

I can easily understand why you're so fed up with that board, Six. I've been browsing on it this afternoon and there's so much utter crap it's unbeliveable!

As per usual it seems dominated by these people who can't engage in a sensible discussion for than two or three messages before they start insulting people etc. But, hey, I'm preaching to the converted, aren't I?

I've only been blogging for just over a week but it seems far more civilised to me.

Gavin Corder said...

Isn't that precisely why we retreated to the iron age hill blogs Six?

The Great Simpleton said...

Six, don't always agree with you but sorry you had to take the stand. What did you say anyway? Given the crap we have to put up with it must have been bad.

I must admit to getting fed up with it myself. I never visit the world board and find more and more solace on the Golf board, sad I know. But the lunatics are really taking over the asylum and we just can't engage in debate without it being dragged to school playground standards.

Alan Saunders said...

Hope you re-appear. Damned if I am going to let the BNP/racist nutters take over so easily. If they are determined to engender racial/relgious hatred I think the truth about the BNP should be aired as well. Sorry to rant. Hope you are well. Enjoyed your views on the youth of today thread.

I do hope that you don't stay away too long, Six. We don't always see eye to eye but that doesn't stop me liking you!

If it's any help, the nutters (apart from PhilKKK) don't tend to have much staying power and drift off after a few months. Then they're replaced with a new set!

Six, PPG sends her love from R5L MB and asks you to come back soon...

The Great Simpleton said...

Have a look at what Augustus postesd, you'll lke it. The numb nuts at 5 like have moded the original but left it repeated in message 14.
