Seems like This v That Topics Making a Comeback

Other

Never understood this tbh. Two random choices even when there may be dozens or scores of others. Different if there are only two choices (very rare) but doesn't make for interesting chat.

It's driving me nuts and I now tend to stick to one particular chat thread. You are absolutely correct Lynibis the this or thats, favourites etc have returned with a vengeance! Worse still are the posters who have absolutely no intention of coming back to their own topic. It's points abuse and should be reported.

Pleased it is not only me that finds it an irritant Lynibis sunny101 Ann1984 a lot of chats are more like a poll or survey or when they do ask a question don't respond to suggestions. The question is to continue or not!

lilyflower I'm ashamed to say that there are times I look at some of the titles and think 'I couldn't give a rat's derriere' and avoid getting involved with the non-returners' threads, like the plague!

I would say the same except for the fact that topics get 'buried' so quickly and a lot of people don't bother going too far back to find a conversational topic.

Lynibis Not surprising they get buried when we have so many inane topics posted daily ( for the points ? ) .

Ann1984 This topic may have triggered the chat but I think it's a member just feels there are a lot of insulting remarks going round. Some let it go over their head and others think 'what an arrogant, up your own, bully you are'. (btw this isn't directed to you πŸ˜„)

my chat discussion wasn't about your chat thread actually. i don't post this and that chat discussions. it wasn't to *offend anyone. rather just for users to be mindful and if people have nothing nice to say to just move on. why spend your life moaning? when you could spread more positivity and support other users. again your assumption was wrong.

Thanks for all your comments everyone. I have been reading the 'other one' too and here is my take on things:

I feel my topic was not rude or offensive in any way and I trust that Jamie was sincere in his denial of his topic being about this one. However, in this world there is positive and negative, that will never change as long as human beings disagree, which they will do on every subject under the sun. So if someone says something negative it is often in response to a previous negative comment so which is being more offensive?

I live by the code of 'all it takes for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing' so if I see/hear something unpleasant I will say something. Not just jog on by. Sometimes people need to be pulled up on bad behaviour otherwise they think they can get away with it.

I dislike the rude comments made by some in response to opinions expressed that don't agree with their own and on that I agree we should be kinder, but, I will never roll over and play dead to the hordes of snowflakes that now live among us.

If that is the nature of your comments then I have no issues. I was told to "f*ck off" earlier today and that is the exact sort of comment which I was on about.

I am glad you appreciate the fact that my chat thread genuinely wasn't about your thread. I think you made a good point, as i like reading and commenting on the genuine chat threats that are asking questions or posing interesting questions. I don't think you should be snowflake or roll over either.

I was just trying to encourage others to post new topics, and try to eradicate the nasty, pointless, unhelpful and rude comments. I am not here to cause drama or upset anyone.

If I ask a topic and you gave me true constructive criticism or voiced a different opinion then I would not have an issue with this. However, the nasty and rudeness is not necessary. However, that's my opinion.

jamiepownall You're wasting your time Jamie and until some action is taken against a certain few who think chat guidelines are only followed by "snowflakes" you always will be wasting your time.

I have been on quite a few forums (still on a few) but this is the only one where telling others to f*** off, or calling other members T***s (rhyming with birds) would be tolerated. It's little wonder many decent people no longer post here.

Many members might not have seen some of the disgusting comments, because they've either been removed or possibly edited by the persons making them or the full topic removed. IMO it isn't just the topics, or the comments that should be removed, but the people who make such comments. Why have chat guidelines if certain people can repeatedly flout them!

I can only guess who told you to "F*** OFF" it was either removed or edited by the person who said it.

Regarding it being "your opinion" - you're entitled to have an opinion and if someone disagrees with your opinion, they're entitled to do so, unless they wish to do so in an abusive manner. Well that's my opinion!πŸ˜€

davidstockport good job i'm not a snowflake, when i was told to f*ck off haha. At least there seems to be some decent individuals, like yourself and hopefully more people will post interesting topics, and not be put off by historic negative, rude, nasty and unhelpful comments.
