I for one look forward to your postings just as long as they are different from the usual "How bad things are in the U.K." you see we already know these things. As for Folks not posting thing to your taste, folks, including M.P. have a life outside of F.R.

I seem to recall another instance of this fairly recently. I will therefore, make a statement based on that which I believe to be pertinent..... I have posted, very sparingly, of late. There are health concerns as part of the reason for this but I have also made the claim, in a reply to Colin that, I find the forums (generally) to be brain crunchingly boring of late. Said statement makes the point that I feel this and does NOT make the accusation that they are boring, per se. We have spoken, many times about each members right to post. If they are paying their subscriptions and are acting within the accepted rules of the site then, they have every right to post in whatever manner suits them. If other members, such as myself find little to nothing to interest them in particular threads then, what better than to avoid them?! Better than condemning them, in my book. Also, better than posting when one has little to contribute, oneself! One mans meat, as they say. Quite likely I have missed the point of the thread and if that is the case I am open to illumination.

I would assume that, the sheep (being at the top of the food chain of Australasian amphibious quadrupeds) are not expected to don said attire of their own volition. Surely the inflatable units would be fitted by a properly trained and if necessary, supervised pneumatic engineer (someone with a lot of wind, innit?!).

It was never boring a few years ago and, to be honest, Im not yet familiar with the site to rediscover whether it has become boring, so Ill probably hang around for a bit and see. Seriously, if the site has become boring I blame no-one. I seem to remember a few years ago when we decided to elect a new government from the members on this site. I seem to remember that Terry Carey was Prime Minister or something of that stature and maybe Mick Pass was Chancellor. We suggested that we could do a better job of governing the country or something as daft anyway and then we all had a little chuckle in our respective garrets I assume. The problem is that the world has become a little more serious and polititians have become a bit more silly and I think its time we asserted ourselves as senior citizens. There are too many sites for us to inhabit in the hours we have in retirement and so - in my case anyway - we dip in and out; spreading alittle wisdom here and a little chortle there and nobody, nobody takes us seriously any more. Lets face it Guys and Gals weve lost all or any influence we may have thought we had to change this world of ours before we chuck off that mortal coil, til eventually all we have left are memories of what might have been. For me, all I want to do now is to dip in and out of web sites. Really dont want to change the world - Thats for Grandson Harry - just want to be happy. I didnt know what I wanted to write but started and then broke off for tea and the news. Tea was good (home made Chicken fried rice since you ask) but the news was bad,bad,bad. I was watching what is happening in Syria and the Bombing of Homs and asking the question, "Why is the Syrian Army bombing their own people?" Dont give me the Obeying Orders stuff. I would no more bomb Manchester, Wales, Scotland than I would bomb my own family.... disgraceful, disgusting state of affairs. Why do we pay into that waste of space organisation called United Nations if we are not United in the condemnation of genoicide? Im probably on the wrong thread to be doing my Victor Meldrew but Fkn hell who listens anymore? Regards

I have made no reference, anywhere, to anyone, on not posting to my taste, in fact as far as MP is concerned I largely agree with his comments, and he knows that. I too have a life outside of FR, though you seem to have an aversion to my commenting on it, which sort of hoists you on your own petard on not posting to your taste. There is a simple answer to anyone not liking what they read of course, and being the simpatico chap I am Ill share it with you: it is: quite simply, Dont Read! The point has been well-made already, but in case you missed it, I dont actually seek any approval from any source as to what I post.

It takes all sorts I hear you say but these forums should never descend into the apathy that appears to exist from time to time. I look forward to getting involved with a sensible debate which pulls in all posters without the need to display anger or pointless argument so we can all say our piece without others resorting to sarcasm or vitriol. Am I being a bit disingenuous?

For the befuddled this simply means that, Hot Topics was always intended for the raising of serious issues and considered debate. THIS section, namely General/Light hearted was always intended for that very thing. Humorous discussion on non earth shattering topics, jocular posting, such as this thread has seen and in general, topics which in no way should ever have cause to raise the wrath of the membership. Until the time that some members start paying attention to the nomenclature above the forum pages and desist in the habit of posting in opposition to the the forum intent i.e. stop posting serious topics in General and light hearted topics in Hot topics then, there will ever be cause for one member or another to whinge about what has happened to their thread. Not sure what is a serious topic and what is lighthearted??? Well perhaps you would be happier on the Tri Service site (if it is still in existence) run by a long ago removed idiot from this site!
