Re: Who are all these people ''viewing??

It's a bit like when some say a forum is boring, unless they contribute and start interesting threads really the other members are not the problem. A forum is as good as the person contributing IMO.

Re: Who are all these people ''viewing??

When I see heated arguments going on and members shooting darts at each other, I tut, shake my head and 'walk' away from it. In other words, I refuse to get involved and will not jump in and add my bit.

I respect everyone on here: I personally don't see a clique, but some members do post more than others. Fine if they have the time to do so. When I'm at a less active stage of my life maybe I'll be on here a lot more. Who knows?

I sometimes cruise around the threads, and if I have a view or an opinion I'll post it. I will certainly NOT be drawn into on screen arguments and personal attacks and steer well clear: you're all adults and can sort yourselves out!!

As to the original question, if there is some information, help or advice I am after, I Google it, find a forum and browse, hopefully finding my answer. If the forum looks interesting, or I need to be a member to post in depth questions, then I may probably join up.

I often get posts ignored. So what? My words may not be worthy of an answer. I don't answer every single post on here either. I'd be here all day.

Good post, Jazzi. I can see why some think there is a bit of a clique, but I think it is just that there are some who post here a lot more than others, and some who have developed online friendships more than others over time.

Also agree with Julie saying "What will drive people away is threads critical of members or the forum." Most of us come on here for a bit of fun, and when spats occur it encourages us to move on.

Absolutely right - we don't need or want confrontation, some people seem to revel in it, then - I get me dander up - otherwise I'm very chirpy
