BBS better in the past?

Dorking.Eagle suggested this was worthy of a thread on it's own.

I posted this on one of the bumped threads from 15 years ago.

I guess it's threads like these that remind a lot of people how poor the BBS is today compared with years ago. Been reading the boards since 1999. Is it simply coincidence that A LOT of people just gave up posting or is it true that 'certain' obsessive BBS posters have spoilt the fun??

I joined about 13 years ago and it was a lot more of a placid place than it is now. I find (not that engage in arguments as such) that people just want to fight now than discuss a subject. That said, I use it more now than 10 years ago or so. Partly because of phones and apps that make it more accessible. It's still great though. You just need to swerve the berks.

I agree it's great, just seeing those old threads brought back some names I hadn't seen posting in years...

Always watched from a distance, but many "older" posters seem to have given up. Too much from the same people now and they just seem to group together whenever anyone threatens their little empire.

^this. Feels like there used to be lot more 'in' jokes and running gags. Used to love the CPFC2010 post s(even when I didn't always agree with what was posted all the time) , which became it's own section but a minority had to spoil that for the rest.

Used to be loads of photos shared in the gallery, but I gave up trying to upload to that a few years ago as I just couldn't work it out.

The political stuff in General Chit Chat is way too heavy, sometimes feels like there is a pack mentality on the Southern Railway and Brexit threads, not worth posting in there as some posters take the discussions way too seriously.

For the sake of balance, I do love coming on here after a win, particularly a home win, it is a joyous place to be.

The arguing about stuff was always the same, but the willingness of people to attack each other with personal shit - about jobs or family etc - feels like it has deteriorated. Consequently people are willing to share less, which is a shame. It doesn't feel as friendly as it was.

But that's social media as a whole I suppose. Twitter used to be positively friendly. Now it's a cesspit.

We've lost a lot of good posters who simply couldn't be arsed and that's also a shame.

Indeed. Nothing better than coming on here after a win and discussing and celebrating all together. On the flip side, if we lose it's like the end of the world and a horrid place. People just want to hang the player/s or the manager to make them feel better. Sometimes we lose because the other team are just better, but people don't see that. They want answers, and instantly!

Missing a new 'classic' thread. Paint, Blue Tac Otter, Photoshop special.

It was simple really - in the past people didn't call each other cnuts all the time. Is that the stress of the Premier League. People were civil to each other through two administrations.

Nowadays people can't discuss a goalkeeper without spitting teeth.

The curmudgeons even killed the yearly awards threads with their grumbling. No one wanted to put their head above the parapet any more.

Though at least 40% of that thread was getting things of their chest and bitching

It's probably no worse than it ever was. It's just people (mainly blokes) chatting shite.

Sometimes it's funny. Sometimes it's not. I've posted for 12 years and it's no different.
