I have posted many times in the past that this is what I do. As an NQT in 1966 I took the TES paper version every Friday, and mixed with my colleagues every night in the pub. This lasted for 30 years, until I came to Barbados. To keep up my practices I opened an account here, so when I post, or start a new thread, I am virtually sitting in a UK pub with other teachers, and some not teachers. I am 78 years old, I will not change my views, but just come to off-load them onto anyone who cares to listen. Should I continue to bother, stop, or go somewhere else? God bless.
