I'm one of the few who enjoy wittily titled threads, titles which parody or mimic existing threads.

Ok, so now you know how low-brow I am, but even I'm getting bored with the poor quality of posts recently.

We need,

- more doom
- fewer "poo and wee" posts
- much less sas
- no Atw

And a special mention to Mich, EO and RC for their entertaining contributions, but all three are somewhat out of form at the moment.

Note to self: I must try harder to create some interesting content, rather than just posting unwitty one-liners !

It is pretty shocking. Congratulations to BGG and Lukemg for contributing the only 2 threads on page 1 that are on topic and worth reading.

If I get the contract tomorrow I'll post something cheerful, otherwise I'll post a bloody good old fashioned rant.

I would have to mention Roger Rabbit and Nial and some other long forgotten posters. I'm not sure it is worse, just wondered what everyone else thinks. Are the dumbing down posts just dumb or funny?

In my day a university degree, was a proper degree, not one of these law with art, mathematics, and peat handling degrees from the trumped up former polly of leeds ... but alas, I have to move with the times.

It got a bit silly a couple of days ago, but I don't think standards have declined. Where would they go anyway?

Too much intervention by overzealous PC happyclappy admin at times. Some of them would have us twinned with the Osmonds' Home Page given half a chance!!

Didn't you have a penchant of stirring it up on there - with RRH?

Everyone stirred it up on there, remember the n***r in a suit incident?

That’s inflation for you – over supply of posts leads to a lower quality of post. Once posts were half-witted, now they are not even quarter witted. The vast number of posts in TPD and Atw churning them out like a mad central banker high on quantitative easing is the problem.

It's hard to find the motivation to be positive when the bench is hard on the bum. (The occasional shitty PMs I get sent from time to time tend not help either.)
