Thread: Where have all the people gone

    Where have all the people gone

    It is not my intention to get into an argument but when I first got on this forum( the first time I have ever been on one) I was drawn to it by my love of deer stalking. Many of the people on it seemed generally interested in someone else's opinions and ideas. Now most of these folk's don't seem to be posting any topics now, is this because of the over powering view's of one or two regulars or are you all busy out stalking. ????
    Do other forums turn out like this??? If so I think I will go and play with my reloading stuff.

    heads down

    Hi Wayne,
    I have found that as well. it maybe becuase we do the same topics almost to death pretty regularly - the my calibre is better than yours, pissing competition etc.

    I also found that whilst contributing to another forum i would give my opinion and advice and have found that there was always someone to assassinate them or me personally, always someone who was holier than thow. always someone more precious, so i stopped posting anything much and certainly nothing that someone else might like to tear strips from. It is a shame becuase i have lots of experience in subjects we all need to know about but not many of us do know about. But I don't post about them now.

    so i keep my head down most of the time. Or spend a lot of time reloading.

    Hope a few will come back

    Thanks Swampy, I was worried it was just me. With a bit of luck a few will read this and see there are people interested in opinions other than there own.

    A lot of the hunting forums are a little slower right now because the weather is getting nicer and people are getting out more.

    Unfortunately you will most likely encounter a troll or two on almost any forum. I hope that won't keep you from posting. I'm guessing the slow down is just due to people having other demands on their time.

    Great a word puzzle. Are we allow to ask 3 questions or do we just make guesses.

    I have one. It happens between your head and your toes, the more it happens the thinner it goes.

    Plenty of scope for experimentation reloading for a 30-06. At least it keeps you occupied 8)

    Swampy,

    your right, I seem to have got involved in an argument / word slinging type of thing over a reloading costs. It is only light hearted and a bit of banter, but I have now pulled the plug on it I hope. You and Wayne are quite right, it is much safer to keep your head down. The manner of debating or discussing a subject seems to have got a bit off base, shame really, it's good to hear how other people do things, there is always something to learn.

    I feel the same Wayne, I was enjoying the company of like minded people on this site. But I now feel that its becoming a competition to slag people down who's comments you may not necessaryly agree with.

    Would they do this face to face, I don't think so!
    Personally I am here to learn, but those with the loadest voices seem to have nothing to teach or offer no evidence to support their views.

    This website is great, well presented, informative and allows stalkers of all levels of experience to learn something new. No one knows everything about stalking so why pretend you do?.

    Please Gentlemen can we all get off our hobby horses and talk like grown ups! Can I also say thank you to the ladies on this site for leading by example. They are good sports and deal with quite alot of flak with good humour.
