Serious Head on.

At the risk of sounding like a grown-up grandfather (sometimes age and/or the OH, obliges even me to act like one) am I alone in concluding that several of the recent posts in the supposedly more serious forums verge towards, if not beyond, the repugnant and are thus stifling discussion?

Besides the inevitable/allowable thread drift there seems to be an eagerness of late to descend into irrelevant, expletive-ridden, chat-line-jousting by some of those who really ought to know better.

No, I don’t want to be a (noted-more-by-their-absence-than-appearance) Moderator, (I thang yew furry mush for the offer if there ever was one ) but whatever you think of me/this post I am only motivated in wanting whatevers best for RR and for all of those who use it.

Sooo - Before giving my little bleat a good ignoring-to please at least hoist in this contribution of 30 months ago from one of Rum Ration’s finest posters – That khaki-wearing cadet-commissioned Cellarman who sometimes even wears his own serious head:

The Crayoning Thread

Seeing as most topics on this site get crayoned on by some right plebs and nobbers, i've decided to start a thread dedicated to the art of crayoning, to save the others.

Hopefully this will prevent decent threads decending into utter bollocks.

Got a problem, gripe or just want to vent your anger, do it here.

Obviously Lil's threads usually descend into anarchy but on the other forums, show a bit of restraint.

Lets see if this works, although i ******* doubt it.

No smilees today but, as those of us of the Trade used to say:

“Deep down you know it makes sense.”

"Self-restraint is very similar to self-abuse; but, like all D-I-Y, it's a tad more difficult for some folk."

RR is finally dying Bob. Killed by bigots, sociopaths with multiple logins and old *******.

Tut tut Sumo, you know very well what Bob is saying, stop using rude words and stop calling the rest of the children names.

I don't think RR is dying Monty, just going through a "phase". Finks and NMC use to liven up topics even if they were, probably, one and the same.

Bastard you really know how to hurt an old fart:rofl:
RR has improved of late, mainly due to Moderators becoming more human and not removing and blocking posts as much as they did in the past

They didn't liven up topics, they contributed to a bleed out to what is now only about 15 active users. We've seen phases come and go, it has always been somewhat cyclic but in 6 years I can never remember it being this dull.
