Diatribe

I have noticed that recently meaningless drivel has gone from a forum for nonsensical decussion, to a rant and rave forum.
I love the freedom this of forum, but is it really necessary to make posts that are racist, offensive, ignorant or just posted to piss people off ?
I know I have the choice to read or ignore topics, however these days I am finding less and less on this forum which is worth the time it takes to read.
There is no nation in the world that is perfect. There is no system of government in the world that is perfect.
There is no religious belief that is right or wrong they are all "beliefs".
By venting frustration, anger or abuse in postings the only achivement,is that the posts get less and less interesting to read. Not to mention senseless to reply to.
I hope that in the near future we can all get back to using this forum for the purpose of enjoyment as a group, rather than at other peoples
expense.
While I'm at it I just want to say that the person who invented browser popup windows should be held accounted. Why can't I go to a website to read the news without a window poping up tell me I am a lucky winner of something I don't want or trying to pursuade me to buy something I have no use for?
I know that it may seem contridictory to rant in a posting, when that was my first conplaint however the topic is diatribe.

Life is just too short. Enjoy it while you can

At least you have the choice of not reading them Maybe with the free exchange of ideas people will make less racist, offensive and ignorant comments. Probaly not but one can only hope.

I totally agree with you Nigel. If only everyone thought like you...the world would be a much better place.
