    I do. I then try & catch up on the real ones, ignore the Word Game ones & most of the Religious ones. Once done mark all posts as read, even though there may be pages & pages of other dross, which may have some decent stuff concealed in it.

    Re: Question

    Yes Mr. spot, I have quite often remarked/grumbled/and rolled my eyes concerning the frequency and saturation (occasionally ) of those two particular subjects.

    I find that people who come online and onto this forum adding stuff to religious thrads must be sadly lacking in any other things to do, and apart from that I really believe that these people just repeat themselves (BORING) just to draw attention to themselves. They don't have anything original to say and as many think, all these religious threads that go round and round getting nowhere, are probably the main cause for the severe lack of interesting participants in this forum.

    The other main reason for keeping folk (who do have something interesting to say) away from Forum Garden is the ever-boring and repetative word games. I know that many folk enjoy these over a morning coffee, and I wouldn't want to cause upsets, so why can't we have a word games only section that people can access easily but they don't fill the front page. Some sort of Group that has a tab on the front page so people can just press and find the word games ? Is this possible ? Also a block on the individual word games from being noted on the front page ?
    I'm a Saga-lout, growing old disgracefully

    Re: Question

    Everybody who comes around here has their reasons, and they participate in threads about stuff that is of interest to them.
    If you can't find a thread that you like, then start a new one. It's really that simple.

    That, it seems to me, was kind of the point of a place like this.

    You are right, I’d had a bad day :-(

    With all due respect I see complaints in the ignorance file when it comes to religion. Not just speaking about one faith but all.

    Most people seem to abandon reason when it comes to religion.

    Reason was never my strong suit. One sees a thread and one rushes in despite the timidity of angels.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I’ve just discovered a new landing spot that appears to combine most of what I want :-
