To me, the Social Board has become really gash of recent. I don't care whether you agree with me or not, it's just a personal observation and one that i'd like to address via the medium of a thread.
It wasn't long ago when the social board used to keep me going through quiet days at work, with the guarantee of at least one chuckle every few hours, along with some interesting, mainly football-related, debate and the odd chat about chocolate bars or last night's 'you are what you eat'. Now it's full of hate threads, which in turn are full of silly little e-bullies being pretty mean to folk they'll never meet. Now don't get me wrong, the occassional bust-up's fine, and obviously we're not all gonna get along. But now it just seems like everyone's trying to find someone to hate just so they can start/contribute to threads about it.
The quality of posting has definitely declined and i think the board's suffering as a result of its own popularity (i'm sure it'll hit the 400 user mark fairly soon), meaning that there are now too many shit threads/posts, which swamp the decent threads, which then sink without trace. In days gone by, these threads would run and run, providing substance to day's where substance was hard to find, filling lunchtime with anticipation of what would have been added in the 45 minutes it had taken to get served at the sandwich shop because you'd forgtotten the kids were back at school and had unwittingly taken your break at the same time as their lunch hour, AGAIN! I'm probably waffling now.
Anyways, as I said, i don't expect most of you to care and due to increased work effort on my part, i don't post as much as i used to anyways, but these are my two-penneth. Spend them as you will.
p.s. I hate you all.
