Reading between the lines, I have a suspicion that a few members from the Betfair forum have recently come across to this forum.The subject matter and minimalist content of postings seem similar to those on the Betfair forum ie. short post / quick reply / quick reply / etc / etc.
Anyone prepared to own up ?

Betfair forum is essentially unmoderated, leading to a feral, downward spiral. They can get   :censored: for mine, bubba. I've never been banned there, by the way. The chief offender is clearly not a punting success and turns like a mongrel dog on anyone who is ! Strangely enough, the bloke seems intelligent.

Did anybody here read Bertsblog ?

It was not about betfair, but about his horses and other none betfair stuff.

No longer on the air.   emthdown

That's from whence I came.

Still some interesting discussions there, but in general the forum has become overwhelmed with unhelpful pettiness, personal abuse and p!ssing contests.  The gallops content has also dropped right off mid week. 

Each to their own, but I just tired of it.

I agree, Bamboo. Like a schoolroom full of kids and no teacher present.  :wacko:

Just a lot of half-bored, home-based men who probably jump between several forums on any given day using the animosity of the keyboard to be cowardly smart ar$es.

No names.  No fights, no bans etc.  I just tired of trawling through the muck.

Canít have enough forum moderation on non-political / special interest forums in my view.   If anyone wants free, open and volatile interaction, there are a few million other internet forums that can accommodate them.

Nothing at all, of course.  In response to the question, I just suspect that the few who ruin it for the rest probably do it compulsively and on several forums.

I'm just speculating, and don't have anyone particular in mind.  You don't agree?

no not really,any forum will have its dills,also any forumite has a right of reply,also racing forums are more likely to have disagreements as a lot of forumites,are more concerned with speaking through their pockets(biased),than factual imo.
away from gambling,look at the gaza holocaust thread,the 2 sides actually involved in the conflict in the middle east hate each other,as i expect most posting on the thread also do,its a very sensitive issue,i personally believe theres no place on a racing forum for a topic of that nature,ps the opposing forumites,won't in my mind be unbiased about about another topic,should 1 of their opponents from the gaza thread post
