    You see the board has its own version of political correctness, and its own fashion of points of view, and standards of conduct. A political correctness that defends some groups that don’t merit any defence, and happily runs down other groups simply because the virtue signalling version of political correctness has not chosen those groups as worthy of defence.
    Layered on top of the reality that lots of people are stressed and just using the board to let off steam, and having a pop at newcomers and dumb things said is all part of the relief valve letting off steam.
    Have a watch of Jordan Peterson on youtube, and his takedown of various fashionable thought police, and let that help.
    I think on balance I prefer free speech, and probably the board would be better hosted in Somalia beyond the reach of the western legal system, and without any moderation at all other than filtering out automated content but then at least we would all know where we stood. In the wild west on our own.
    But there's already a forum out there that will satisfy your criteria CoolCat, it's called 4chan. I'm sure that you'll be made very welcome.

All i did was ask something simple and all i got was a load of replies trying to wind me up, trying to humiliate me in public, trying to make me look stupid and degrade my spirit. Im sure this post will attract more of the stupid posts from these vile people. However I hope there is still a lot of good people on here. Most people get pleasure from helping others. The nasty individuals on my thread seem to get pleasure out of humiliating another human being. A stranger they dont know. This is nothing else but bullying. Im certain they would not be so nasty if they were standing in front of me. Why do they feel the need to inflict this behaviour on another person.

    If you dont like my thread fair enough, there is no need to be such nasty individuals. You obviously have serious issues when they need to treat people this way to make themselves feel better.

    I have sent all the concerned people a message to see what they have to say. I have no desire to use this forum again. I know i wont be missed. I think a lot of people need to ask themselves is this the kind of forum we want to run when even the admins are having a go too.
    I'm not responding to your private message as I have nothing to hide. And I'm a grown up.

    You have demonstrated:
    1) Bad manners when offered free advice and opinion. The opinion is because this is free and it's a free country and all that.
    2) Over-sensitivity when offered advice with a sense of humour.
    3) Aggressive responses (yes - you, you're the one that's been aggressive)
    4) Childishness in the extreme.

    If you were born in 1969 then there's no hope for you you miserable whiney, maggot-like old git.

    More likely you were born in 1999 and are just a sensitive snowflake. Get used to it, life doesn't get any easier. (that's genuine advice)

    And FFS. Not one person bullied you. All gave good (and free advice).

    Yea he gets some things wrong, but he is a lot closer to reality than the main stream media or the political class.

    We need more people prepared to say these things, and not bullied by the political climate from saying what we really think.
