I don't get where these slanging matches are happening? It just all seems like normal conversation between people who have differing opinions to me? I don't want to see people getting into heated arguments coz it puts new people off joining and existing members off posting. But I really haven't particularly noticed anything in recent times? And have been trying my best to nip anything in the bud that seems to be heading down that route. Off topic stuff I'm not too bothered about apart from that flaming Ponga thread haha. Honestly I don't think people realise how much it takes out of you trying to keep the wheels spinning on a forum like this, and trying to keep it in line with the values you hold for it, it virtually gives you a breakdown after a month or so. Hence my disappearing acts in recent years.
