Most of the time I just visit to check out what's going on in the forum and then leave. I find I'm able to be much more productive when I don't log on. Besides, guys like Supertwit and Dr Jung are far too witty to converse with :!:

I am busy tracking IP addresses as we post! I think that most of the 'I Hate' posts were tongue in cheek. I think, that knowing the calibre of the posters on this site, none of them would be so cowardly, faint-hearted, pusillaminous, yellow bellied or spineles not to have approached a moderator directly if they had a gripe?
I am not wrong am I? :?

Well, sometimes it just feels like the the forums has become some place for people to chat, I don't have any problem with that, sometimes you can get some very funny remarks.

A year ago the forums was much more technical orientated, with some interesting discussions about hardware or anything PC related. Nowadays, it all this, my not speak, bandgame name, o and answer a question with a question GAME.

COMMON, I know some of you guys didn't get enough time playing drinking games when you where in young, but ..... cr@p forgot what I wanted to write. Lets just leave it there, some things a better left unsaid than said at all.

TO BE REAL, IT FEELS LIKE THE FORUMS HAS LOST THERE MEANING, WELL FOR ME ANYWAY. THE MOST EXCITING THING FOR ME AT THE MOMENT IS WHEN SOMEBODY STARTS A FLAME WAR AND YOU CAN SEE SOME SERIOUS INTELLIGENT PEOPLE GETTING PIS*ED ON, SO FUNNY, AND DR.JUNG...AAAAAA WHAT WILL WE DO WITHOUT YOU.

Damnit, why am I so full of horse cr@p 2day. Where is Saturn today, is it aligned with Pluto? Damn cosmic planets are screwing me aroung 2day. :cry: :wink:

Dont beat yourself up, man.
You raised some valid points there.
I dont often participate in the game threads like 'you may not speak', but I do enjoy the general discussions (not the religeous/political ones).
I only contibute to a technical discussion if I have a question, or think I know the answer to one. As the guys at my work love nothing more than talking shop, and I dont need to come online to get into an Geforce vs Radeon argument, although I do learn quite a bit reading them.
I lurked in these forums about a week before joining myself. It's one of the few forums I frequest regularly, although I am a member of quite a few forums.

Hey hey hey, maybe I should right here more than I useally do. Free massages, The King speaking to the round table...feels like Medi-Evil ages.

O, I have to share this with you, probably not the best place to do so but still..

Do any off you know where the F-word comes from. In the 14-15 century or somewhere arounf there Europe was under the cloud of the Black Death (Snot Sickness aka Flue). As a result something like 100s of thousands of people died.

Because of this sudden decrease in population the Kings became very uneasy about their tax returns (less people = less taxes to collect). The Kings then ordered the people the do the act to increase the population numbers and to stimulate crowth.

Believe or not is was called

Furtility
Under the
Command of the
King

Weather this is true or not I don't know, but is sure makes for a interesting read. Don't ya think

Standing in the corner of the room being called Donkey and mouth being washed with BLOU SEEP isn't funny @all

No, it was Fornication Under Consent of the King

Oh and Squatty, don't try to bypass the forum's swearing filters by using spaces and special characters - that's also against the rules.

I agree. But there are many out there who claim that the threads are too boring cause of the low post rate. Unfortunately hardware isn't discussed in depth as it used to be so there's not much to talk about. Some guys sit in front of the pc just waiting for replies instead of doing something constructive, and this can become VERY frustrating. I know this cause I was guilty of it for some time. So "nothing" threads are created to pass the time. And the guys who are really technically inclined usually hang out at international sites and when users come here for advice they are often just provided with a link to some other site. This isn't wrong, but in the end that person will leave the site to find the solution somewhere else.

I stand to be corrected on all of this though.

You can only vote once - how did you manage to vote seven times? As soon as you vote the first time, the voting option goes away and you see the poll results... :D

Regarding what Y0da said, we can see all your details.... :twisted:
