Sorry but you're talking complete garbage, you moron! Sorry, couldn't resist! That was a joke.

I visit several messageboards, some computer related, others not. I do find it depressing that there is so much personal abuse on some of them. I run a non-league football club website and refuse to have a messageboard on it - football club messageboards (professional and non-league) are the modern equivalent of a punch up outside the ground (which unfortunately appears to be making a comeback).

I think we're reasonably well off in the RISC OS world. The really bad arguments always revolve around one person (no names, but you know who I mean). There is a second one who occasionally over-reacts (in my opinion) if people stray off topic, but at least he never gets out of hand.

Messageboards are like any other area of life - you'll get on with some people and not others. Concentrate on the ones you get on well with.
