Mix on Forums

When I banter about the mythical Spanish Living Forum and joke about TLF it often strikes me the very wide range of types of people we all encounter on forums.

I suppose it's a mirror of people in the real world but I do at times wonder is it also that a certain type of person is attracted to forums in general.

Let's be honest TLF sure has more than it share of loudmouths ( like myself) nutters ( me again) etc but can sometimes it does seem to attract people you maybe wouldn't want to even speak to never mind debate with in real life ( maybe me again!)

On the other side of the coin I often think I would def love to meet up with some of the very witty, very intelligent and just downright decent types (not me!) who always come across as positive and likeable who,you know you would just love to have a beer or debate with regardless of rows or disagreements we have had on here

Re: Mix on Forums

It's keyboard warriors that get up my nose Philip, one's that are abusive or attack people but hide. If someone is upfront with who they are and would say the same if they met up face to face then I have no problems.

Re: Mix on Forums

I woul never say anything to anyone I wouldn't say in person, I'm not the shy retiring type by any means, I can't stand those who post flowers and fairy cakes under 1 id and ****e and or venom under another, as a mod I know mostly who they are when I care to look.

There are many exceptions but I am always suspicious of members who disclose no personal information about themselves – some are true keyboard warriors. And I can think of several whose whereabouts & sex we can only guess at.

Also those where there is a huge discrepancy between ‘thanks’ given and received which to me would indicate meanness of spirit.

Well I don't think you will ever be considered a shrinking violet or keyboard warrior

Re: Mix on Forums

The internet and social media which forums are have emerged quite by coincidence at the time when the 'pub' has virtually died a death. You tended to have several pubs in your portfolio for different days of the week, each one of them offering something slightly different. You knew which pubs you had selected were the ones to be in when you started to see the same faces turning up as well.

I have sampled several forums but on the whole found TLF to offer a wide selection of entertainment. However being popular does tend to draw in some weird arseholes, dangerous bastards and boring prats. For the most part they don't last long but the bores don't seem to get the message and prattle on and on and on. So most people just seem to ignore them but they are so in your face they do tend to annoy and sadly drive people away from the forum. Those that they do are the very members some of us stayed with the forum to communicate with.

As for the keyboard warriors as they are called, they like the bores don't seem to recognise the fact that that is what they are.

I have met a few members here over the time I have spent on the forum and am very glad that I did. My judge of character antenna has served me well and so far I every one a cracker. There are still a few who I would like to meet up with and who knows I might one day do just that.

Like Martin I would not be afraid to say to someone's face what I have said to one or two members in the past.

Good post Philip.

Re: Mix on Forums

Sadly, although I have no intention of singling out the threads or individual posters, just flicking across certain subjects today there do seem to be some pretty disturbed individuals with possibly quite serious issues drawn to forum life

I am not saying that in response to views which may be the opposite of my own, indeed others may have the view that I too fall into this category, I say it more in a general sense of concern and I suppose ultimately this again is a reflection of real life off forum too

Re: Mix on Forums

Remember the vast majority of people don't do forums.

Too busy with their working life.

Only wierd trolls or genuine sociable people inhabit forums.

Some people love to discuss their experiences , but then they are put off by negative posts.

There is never agreement on any forum.

Nature of the beast.
