    Default Is CUK different......

    Prompted by various other threads.

    I know there is a substantial amount of vitriol and spite on CUK....
    I know newbies often get flamed.....
    I know there are a lot of Trolls and Sockpuppets...

    but is CUK any worse than other sites?

    as an example I haven't been on Itcontractor lately but that was always Trolls, arguments and mindless plonkers raving at each other..... except there they could change thier name each posting....

    I would end with "discuss" but I would only get flamed cos after all the mere fact of voicing a question implies that discussion is invited........

    What's best, to allow freedom of expression and the inanity that goes with it, or an oppressive forum that restricts free speech and churns out extremist suicide posters that have been indoctrinated to the ways of the webmaster?

    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    Is that "special" as in nice or special as in "Joey Deacon"?
