I would imagine that after a fortnight sat on a bottle you will be more than chilled out Malcolm!

 

Have a good break, look after yourselves and take care - bottles can be dangerous things in the wrong place!

Until now, I have only posted on Motorhome Matters and have been amazed at the mind-numbing, trivial chat that clogs the forum. A friend recently told me that, if I thought that was bad, I should look at Chatterbox. Well here I am and I see exactly what he means.

 

I am delighted, for his sake, that Knight of the Road is going away for two weeks, but I fail to see how this banal statement is of the slightest interest to anyone else (except the burglars!).

 

When you come back we will be delighted to hear of your exploits, but until then, no interest.

I think you'll find it's Malcolm's modus operandi.

 

He posts something and folk respond.

 

Or they don't. It's a choice thing.

 

Some folk enter into the ZOPA, (zone of potential agreement since you ask), and some do not.

 

So Malc has succeeded again. Folk have responded. Negatively and positively.

 

Have a good 'un Malc.

Mike,

This chatterbox forum is for chatting about anything and everything, seeing as you are a comparative newby to the group (only 72 posts) you haven't slotted in yet, regular posters of chatterbox know how each other works, if you don't like chatterbox then i suggest that you sling your hook, from your snide comment I can see a potential troll who will no doubt be slapped down by chatterbox regulars.

Mike,

Point us to some of the pearls of wisdom that you have posted on Motorhome matters?

Martyn,

I would say that Mike or Stantheman is nothing but a cyber bully, if someone posts something that he does not like then he resorts to snide comments.

You probably know me enough that I dont bow down to the likes of this particular troll, let battle begin.

Telling a man that he's not as worthy as another just because he has only 72 posts is typical of Knight of the Road. 72 posts in Motorhome Matters is worth 700 of the kind of trivia that we're discussing here.


Anyone can rack up hundreds of posts if they tell us every time they go to the lavatory or wake up with a bit of a cold.


A person's low post count is no reflection on him or her and the views and opinion of someone with one post to their name is as important as the views and opinions of someone with two thousand.

Oh Dear - just as peace breaks out we get another one who can't post without being rude!

 

Come on Mike - stan a real man would not need to make any point by insulting others!

 

If you don't like the content of Chatterbox, or if you have a sense of humour by pass on the NHS, the solution is simple enough but I wouldn't wish to insult your inteligence by spelling it out!

 

Let's all carry on being nice to each other again shall we?

That might be so but who is Stantheman to lay down the law as to what anyone posts? If he doesn't like the posts then he should just ignore them, by replying in a snide way only serves to light the touch paper, so in your words then what is typical of Knight of the Road?As a group manager myself of some ten years one thing a manager likes to see is posts be they banal or whatever, so if you dont like my posts then **** off.

Richard,

You know as well as I that sometimes a spat developes and it goes on for a while then fizzles out and everyone is friends again.

Then you get someone like Stantheman sticking his head above the parapet antagonising people, so what do you do? Kowtow to his wishes or tell him to shut his trap?

Or attempt to make him look a twerp?

As far as I am concerned this chattebox forum is great, plenty of banter and wit and taking the Mickey, tit for tat and no offence meant, those of a sensitive nature or those who think they are psuedo intellectuals would do well to get on their bike.

I'm sorry but if anyone is a bully here it's Knight of the Road. Stantheman visited Chatterbox and was surprised at the trivia that is posted. He commented on that as he is perfectly entitled to do. He is welcome to his opinion just as anyone else is.

KOTR's reaction was to call him a bully and a 'troll who will be slapped down by the Chatterbox regulars'. So as far as KOTR is concerned he appears to think that he's in some exclusive little club of 'Chatterbox regulars and God help anyone who dares to comment on their activities.

Stantheman's post may not have been the most diplomatic but he expressed a view that many of us share and he does not deserve the kind of approbation being heaped on him by KOTR. He has 72 Posts in Motorhome Matters and that suggests to me that he is anything but a troll as to get so many posts on serious subjects suggests that he is a serious person.

Yes, I'm sure that many people enjoy Chatterbox. I'm also sure that many people who would like to take more interest in it are put off by what is a load of total trivia from the odd person.

I for one will not prolong this debate, so I wish you a good evening. I've no doubt that, as I am not a 'Chatterbox Regular' with a million posts to my name, that KOTR will dismiss my views just as savagely as he has dismissed Stantheman's.

Edited to say - I've just read the post above and it sums up KOTR. He talks about people who think that they are 'pseudo intellectuals'. People may think that they are intellectuals but to say that someone thinks he's a 'pseudo intellectual' is actually saying that he thinks that he isn't intellectual! Although I don't think that KOTR is actually intellectual enough to work that out!

Sorry Thornber but in this instance you are wrong in my opinion....and Stanman and Francis are spot on...

 

Its the kind of rambling inane garbage that the likes of KOTR specialise in, that makes visiting the "chatterbox" forum a virtual waste of time?,and why I and probably others dont visit it that much......may I add It is not a private blog?

 

simply full of inanities such as ."I picked my nose today and went to Tesco's", style drival...I mean the chap is so bloomin boring, he cant even sum up the energy to say where he is going...probably somewhere just as boring as his lazy infantile utterances lol

If folk don't like Chatterbox then why the heck do they click to read?

 

Because a few of 'em who lack the ability to say anything pleasant to anyone and who have nothing else to say seem to actively seek any opportunity to be unpleasant to others whilst trying to tell us how reasonable they are?

 

I don't think they fool anyone?

 

Perhaps they have unhappy lives and resent others being more content and perhaps we should all feel sorry for their sadness?

 

There you are Bruce - that ought to do it!

Lets have it right, Stantheman attacked me personally by saying my OP was banal do I have to put up with that? If as he says Chatterbox postings are trivial could he not have opened up a new thread to express is thoughts instead of pointedly attacking someone? Apart from that he says it was a friend of his who told him to look in on Chatterbox.

He also said the only ones interested in the fact that I was going away would be housebreakers, do we have any on here? and if we have how would they find out where I live?

Mental is an apt name for you, you are one of the nasty members on this group, full of your own self importance, as Omar Kyam said, up yours.

You think so do you.......Better that then being a terminal bore and a congenital idiot

 

Sometimes I can visit here and there have seen 20 threads from you on the front page alone.....You treat the forum like a personal fiefdom, I wouldn't mind if your contributions had some merit. "chatterbox" appears to be dominated by a handful of oddballs including that Kirby chap!
