I find all this arguing very off-putting. I'm not a miserable person and I like banter etc, but bickering isn't of any interest to me at all. I was told that this forum is a good place to learn from some excellent anglers, and there are certainly many of them here. I though it might also be a good place to get in touch with people to go fishing with.

But I've been attacked on here and it puts me right off. I don't feel particularly inclined to contribute because I don't want to engage with somebody who is shooting their mouths-off whilst they feel secure sat behind their computers, and working under the assumption that I am some strange, skinny little geek.

But I respect the desire of others to keep things the way they are if thats how people want to keep it.
I don't think anyone has the assumption that you are strange and skinny or little.
Geek well that's a different kettle of fish. Lol :laughs:
I'm very geeky mate. Its the way I was born.
No harm in being geeky Steve :study:

My 2 cents worth. I joined here for advice, contribution and a fair ammount of banter. I think the problem with any message board/forum is that any comments can be taken in a different way to what was intended. Trolling a thread isn't good and can be frustrating. I've seen comments in various topics that I have had to read twice and try to see the comment from both sides of the coin. On the whole this place is pretty damn good. I will look forward to getting to know your characters and will learn how to take u. The Pikers pit is great, keep it up !

Great to have you back Stew. :laughs: :laughs: :laughs:
If at first you don't succeed, sky-diving is probably not the sport for you!

Regarding policing the forum, I have some experience of saying " elo..elo..elo...wots all this then", not that I was ever a policeman...I just have a habit of saying that, I think this obviously puts me in a premium position to become a moderator/toy police person....your views please.

Abit disappointing to read about the trolling and arguements going on, sometimes on forums it’s difficult to tell what is real and what is banter. I’ve only been here a week or two now but to me, this forum is a mine of information, it’d be a real shame to have it spoilt over a couple of d i c kheads. Also after reading about the pikingecologist being attacked, I’d just like to say I wouldn’t dream of taking that kind of abuse, let me make one thing clear, I will fight any woman on this forum.

Its kinda par for the course on here mate. Been this way for years. Old members having a go at each other for the most part. Best thing is just not to get dragged in to it :wink:
