    I have become bored with this new site..it killing my eyes with its whiteness, its still full of imperfections after many goes to get it right. I am now starting to think can I really be bothered to come to the site let along read and reply on it..
    Its so boringly dull.
    Every one is so polite and it seems as if the fear of an 'ofsted ' type threat has affected the posters in that the moderators will wield a big stick and ban one to outer darkness.
    I shall have to see but after all the years I have been on this site I seriously am considering to visit only if I am in the mood,instead of several times a day as i used to do.
    Some might welcome my departure. my computer might........its a good job i can visit Youtube for entertainment....or maybe it time to take up reading.

    I think we're just enjoying the emasculation of the Marxist Mafia and the option of ignoring the trolls, Olds.

    I don't see a problem with everyone being polite to each other. It doesn't necessarily mean that everyone agrees with each other but even disagreements can be polite.

    We're just settling in, Olds. I'm sure normal service will be resumed before long.
    You didn't like it when we were having a ding-dong and you don't like it now that we're charm personified.
    Post something contentious, then.

    Fear is no basis for an entertaining forum.

    For starters there never was any Marxist mafia, and you still have not learned to spell!

    Freedom of speech? "My ars!"

    There have been several comments about people enjoying the increased traffic on here. I have found it much improved. It seems that the worst of the trolls haven't bothered with the place . I see that as a benefit.

    That's a bit harsh, oldy. We always were polite (most of the time) - you're only noticing it now because the stirrers are absent.

    I think it's much better Olds, even though I can't yet work half of it. You're being a grumpy oldsome man and it doesn't suit you!

    So far I think it's better.
    More user friendly anyway.

    In a way, it's how I perceive what living in Britain would be like if the tabloids all went bust overnight.

    I just wish it wouldn't keep logging me out and I didn't have to keep inputting my password.
