Good day to you all. I don't often post here but have lurked for many years. Over the last day or so, I have been browsing the forum for the first time in a while and am much saddened by what I have found. On just this first page I have witnessed:

  • Insults.

See points 3 & 4

  • Forum members attacking other members.

See points 3 & 4

  • Some really quite sophisticated trolling.
  • Some really very unsophisticated trolling.

The cause of many problems on these foru.

  • Bickering and fighting.

See points 3 & 4

  • Threads and posts disappearing all over the place.

As a result of points 1, 2 & 5 due to points 3 & 4.

  • A general air of dissent and discontent.

See points 3 & 4

I was hoping to come on and ask a couple of questions but it does not look like I would be very welcome to do so.

Ask away. I am sure you will receive a civil response.

Is this forum still suitable for such a purpose or has it completely descended into chaos now? It was always a bit "edgy" in here, but it seems to be out of control now. What has been the cause of this and is it worth my effort to ask questions here?

See points 3 & 4
