Actually the dogging threads are positively shakespearean compared to the eu/tory/homeless/cannabis drivel that has dominated recently

It's a great forum. One of the few that hasn't been killed by heavy handed moderation. There's room for all here. Long live the forum and all who post in it.

As usual it's degenerated a bit due to the school holidays. I'm quite enjoying it at the moment!

I have given up. Years ago it used to be an intesting place but the lack of moderation has killed it gradually.

I think it's good. Dogging posts are mildly amusing and Brexiters are being held to account for their utter stupidity and none of them can give a decent response.

It's in the doldrums, thanks to a few people who seem to think this forum is their personal blog. Variety is the spice of life, so seeing the same subjects again and again is a real turn-off. But if we don't like it, it's up to us to do something about it and try and write something more interesting.

Nail on head P P. It's not a blog or soap box. You seem sensible. Start a thread.....but not about the E. U. Or cannabis! Please no more

Paul Newman complains about a lack of moderation. Surely that's what he was guilty of, in the other sense of the word, with his absurdly long essays about his twin obsessions: the EU and Maria Caulfield. He treated this forum like a personal blog and lectured us from his pulpit. He's promised to leave this forum before and hasn't kept his word, so I won't get too excited about his latest announcement.

The only problem I find is people moan about others lecturing and taking over threads whilst lecturing and taking over threads.

I think it's suffering from the loss of a few fairly prolific but interesting and amusing posters over the years (the likes of Brixton Belle, Southover Queen, Spinster of this Parish, Lewesianna, for example).
But any forum is what its members make it, so in a sense we've only got ourselves to blame if it's in a bit of a decline.
And I enjoy the political threads. They often include some of the more literate and well thought out posts, in among the drivel.

Like any facility offered, unguarded, to the public in this country, it soon gets vandalised and fills up with graffiti, rubbish and signs of hatred and contempt for others

Snappy reply Webbo! A bit defensive tho! I never said I didn't like it! Just the mess that some people make of it.

This site is well known throughout the forum industry and one of the few sites that is continually contributed too. It featured on a critics page last weekend of n a tabloid newspaper and local radio news. May account for the increase in users.

Big thumbs up from me. I'm not particularly into dogging but love a bit of politics and local news.
Everyone is entitled to their own view so don't mind complaining unless it's personal or repetitive. That's the joy of places like this, everyone gets a say.
Good job webbo

I like the forum. It has some really good contributors and has been funny and interesting on many occasions. Sure, you get a couple of circus clowns sniping at me and others daily in a bizarre obsessive way, but i kind of just pity them and laugh off their child-like personal attacks. It's just a dysfunctional family that we learn to love over time!

It's definitely got a lot worse. Unfortunately it's a make-do affair - don't think there's any alternatives...
