Please people, until around July/August time when we received a lot of new members on the back of Live 8, this baord was relatively peaceful and, despite being quite dull at times, everyone got along fairly well, (with perhaps one or two exeptions). Now I am not blaming all members who joined at about the time of Live 8 or since, but that seemed to be the turning point. Now it almost seems like too many want to be banned, it has become a status symbol.

This board is susposed to be a community and us mods are only here to ensure that rules are adhered to and topics are in the right place, (and don't turn into dozens of pages of chatting, as has happened a lot of late). We are not here to spoil your fun. If you read the rules, or even if you don't, and break them, you run the risk of a warning. It's not guaranteed, but many seem to be trying to push their luck these days.

I also encourage all those members who are fed up with these activities too, or aren't purposely breaking rules to get banned to join clubs that sound as pathetic as the clubs we all set up when we were eight year olds, to speak up. So many members are complaining it is a case of us mods versus the rest, when we know many of you agree with us.

We used to have a lot of good discussion around here and were often surprised by the age of members posting some of the most intelligent comments, but that has almost completely gone. I know it isn't because a lot of you don't have it in you, but appears to be more linked to laziness. We can rebuild this community if we give it a go, but so many seem to be interested in short posts that boost their post count than provide content. It does not impress other members, it merely tells us that when you post 1500 times in a month that you are either gushing, spend far too long on this board, or both.

Please, please, please, give it a go. :)
