I seem to recall the first time I met you (at the Dinghy Show) I call you a short arsed dwarf...all in good humour though. We had a good chat that day as I recall.

I pretty much gave up here because of the trolling.

It was clear to me that iGRF was trolling from when I joined the forum, I just apply a discount factor to his posts and ignore him when he says something that annoys me. Actually I assumed Zeon was also a troll, just a much more grumpy, less happy one and I applied the same to his posts. What is interesting is that often their is a grain of truth in what a troll posts and others are just too frightened to make that point. I guess what I am saying is that I am ok with the trolls, they hold a mirror up to us and sometimes its useful to take a look.

I am one of them. Sadly, I think there are many others like me who dont post often for that very reason. You can either ignore that perspective, or take note and perhaps be less polarising....  By your own admission, this site is often tumbleweed
I know you will of course ignore my suggestion  ;-)


Well that's excellent advice, maybe I should follow your fine example from the Changing rooms thread.. Weren't you the fellow that took his mother in law on his honeymoon and told all these fine people they were dinosaurs? Hmm Maybe I won't..

Just take the time-honoured advice people, and ignore the troll.

I have to admit though that I quite enjoy his random comments, even if I take care not to rise to them.  Then again, I don't follow the current UK fashion to take offence at everything possible, even when it's unintended.

Bike sheds still on then, used to be smoking and fighting there at my school, you tended only to fight until you finished up on the floor, then someone would shout 'pile on' and they would be crushed under loads of lads.

Well in a way, that would vindicate your POV in that the only ones left are those that can tolerate/ignore/get, the shall we say quirky style of my 'posts'. Then again folk come on forums like this for lots of reasons, some with questions, some wishing to give answers, some for the banter, some to satisfy sponsors, some to alleviate boredom, but one thing this forum is relatively clear of, that i do like, is the lack of 'politics' , Brexit, etc that is so endemic everywhere else, so maybe some of us just come to get away from the reality of day to day life, so I would say to you, don't go, without somebody championing the cause of 'decency' and reigning in excess, that I do admit to being guilty of at times, it would degenerate.

I'm sure there are lots more watching than post and lots that would agree with your position that maybe are not 'thick skinned' enough to call me to task.

I do try to menace society, honest. I must admit I miss that what was it called again 'Sailing Jihad?', I doubt they'd let you call it that these days, they gave me a 24 hr posting ban just because I just that word that rhymes with crikey to describe our travelling brethren.
