The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Post by RIPLionheart » Fri Feb 14, 2020 9:04 pm

I start this thread in the full knowledge that I may get some of the abuse that prevented me from engaging in this forum for a considerable time but...what the hell
There are some incredibly knowledgeable posters on here and some absolute wind up merchants.
Insiders and fans.
Players and watchers.
Veterans and newbies.
I read some threads in absolute bemusement as I don’t get the in joke - pictures of a man who looks very ill, references to IFM, a Pygmy hiding behind a sofa etc.
Others I read and applaud internally - the Hospice thread which quite rightly remains as a sticky.
Overall this site serves a great purpose - you have exposed Jacklin for the fraud he is, debated the big issues and maintained a dialogue.
I don’t know who David Owen is, or Rout and I don’t care. The reason for my first thread is thus - the Good is in the debate, humour, puss takes,knowledge and passion
The Bad is in the boring infighting and BDO V PDC shite.
The Ugly is in the posting of abuse, pictures of clearly I’ll members and the perpetual point scoring.
Overall like a proper local - the drinkers want to drink, the gossips want to gossip and now and then a random walks in. Don’t ever change.

David Owen is not ill, he’s just a scruff.

Personally I would advise you to not give a shit what anyone else thinks. A really good first topic started by you, and some pertinent points made. Forums are a mix of dart fans and those who see them as a social medium. And you have others who see forums as an opportunity to abuse and troll behind hidden identities on an effort to fulfil their own social inadequacies. Think we have got a happy medium on here.

Apologies, you are 100% right. The stalking of poster David Owen by ILAD, Timmy B, Black Velvet and the rest of the df refugees certainly need a category for themselves. :grin:

I am actually watching (it's on dvd and on pause, whilst mrs devo makes me a ham sandwich ) high plains drifter. Another Clint classic.

This is a good darts forum overall. Keep posting.

Was that a picture of David Owen? Didn't look like that a couple of years ago (from memory, when I met him).

I see some people moaning and whinging about how they don’t post and the thread content being an issue. Well guess what, if they all sit back and say nothing rather than input into them then they will always stay the same.

Poor lad is just being cyber-bullied because he didn't have a shave. And had a hoverboard incident.

Anyone who doesn't constantly abuse the BDO and praise the PDC is bullied.

Personal comments by anti-BDO posters are allowed to stand. When the odd balanced poster gives them some back their posts are deleted.

Posts I have reported containing personal attacks, some about other poster's family members, have been allowed to stand. This isn't an impartial forum.

You have reported just two posts
One of which you used the posters real name in your report, so I won’t get the violin out for you
