On looking at the Chat and Speak Easy Forum`s, the picture is one of dying interest, the patient is on a life  support machine. Apart from 3-4 recent entries, the log is one of history. Some of the last posts are quite old.

 

I would think that in the complex, confused and worrying world we live in, there is an infinite variety of topics spanning A-Z of our entire living spectrum, from personal issues to Global. But what do we get ? Not much actually, it is pathetic. If this lack of enthusiasm carries on, these two Forum`s will simply fade away like old soldiers.

 

Come on fella`s, enter your various topics and give these two Forum`s a blood transfusion.

These kind of chat shows are pure relaxation, enable International  conversation, inspire the brain and take our minds off all that boring computer stuff and Granny Windows aches and pains..

Personally I think the one of the main problems with the Speak Easy forum is that thoughtful debate tends to get drowned out by rude and obnoxious members who are not really interested in debate at all, but who simply want to come on the forum and rant.

You are of  course perfectly correct. It is the same with most Forum`s.

But as that tendency appears to be part of life on a Chat Forum, what else can we do ?

 

We either have a chat Forum or we do not. I know of a major Forum that deleted the Chat section for just that reason, more trouble than what it was worth and now only deal with computer issues.

 

I dunno Budapest, it is so nice to have an International  chat show, but a high proportion of subjects do develop into a personal slogging match.

 

My post is only trying to inspire some enthusiasm, but I guess I am peeing into the wind.

Thanks, but I gave it a swing.
