PostSubject: Culling Members    Fri Mar 17, 2017 7:34 pm

I had completely forgotten I had joined a forum and had a message today as follows.

Members who have not logged in this year have been removed from our site.

This means that you may have lost some 'Friends' from your profile page and other areas of the site.

It does also mean that as you browse our site and interact with members they are far more likely to reply Smile


I do find the number of members who just sit in the background odd as I thought a forum was to chat to other member.


Anyone have thoughts  whistle

I pop in to the 5 forums I belong to every day and at intervals, like when I'm having a coffee. I don't do word games or puzzles but that's just me, I like to interact with people so unless I have something to post, I flick through in case there's a topic of interest, but I'm usually short of time. 
Things are a bit different at the moment as I have got gout in my left knee. Very nasty so I can sit at my computer and harass you all!

I only use 3 forums now  i dont seem to have the time like i used to --but looking at the list i think some members should be culled as it dont look like they are interested in posting.

I have enjoyed our chats Ciderman. I do not tend to like the word games either but like music.  I also do craft  rug making at the moment on hold. I enjoy world news topics and cultural news.

I just left  a forum and not on any others now. I was getting more and more stressed and frankly do not need it.

Painful gout.  sun

Probably forum spies ha ha. I enjoy looking for interesting topics to post our Jimmy  I suppose we all should make an effort to  find threads to attract new members

Maybe a smaller forum is better. Less ego   blowkiss

Long, long ago when I was at school in Auckland, the teachers instigated an anti-bullying scheme involving senior pupils who had some school respect from the rest of the pupils, because maybe they were sports leaders with a high profile. We were told that we should involve ourselves if we saw bullying taking place. That didn't mean that we had to bully the bully but to use our 'mana', (Maori word for respect) to stop the bullying. 
I know this is a little off topic but I have had no respect for bullies or even failed bullies, and these do occur on the internet.

Funnily enough Ciderman this was instigated in the NHS too with specific protocol enforced. This is why I am so shocked it happened on a forum of supposed mature posters. 

I have had many contact me confirming this as well. If they do not conform then you are hounded off. Even since Brexit the rudeness displayed to our European friends is quite frankly disgusting. Yes by all means have a different view but when it comes to name calling of others makes the post invalid. 

My dad abhorred bullies and always had a sense of justice. I hate racism too, I have many ex colleagues all races and religions.

cd I've had gout in both feet for 20 odd years and they have been odd years but there is a simple remedy - progout taken daily removes all pain but leave off it for a few days and the pain returns

I had to look that up Davo!  That's allopurinol which I take as a preventative but obviously not preventative enough this time.
