Re: something wrong.

do not worry about not understanding football or accrington stanley. there are many who attend games at the wham and everywhere across the country in the same boat as you. at least you admit it.

Re: something wrong.

The very fact that so many people have missed Margaret and have been concerned regarding her absence, shows that she is a very important member and contributor to the forum. Her knowledgeable expertise and intelligent ‘conversations’ have helped make numerous threads extremely interesting – albeit sometimes controversial, but isn’t that what forums are about, encouraging people to voice their opinions.

Having said that, I understand where Margaret is coming from because, let’s face it, for a while now not many topics of general interest have been discussed and debated. So here’s hoping that members will soon start discussing more than football and the corona virus and let’s hope that Margaret’s hiatus is only a short one. Until she comes back Margaret will continue to be very much missed.

Dorothy, you say the kindest things. Thank you
I truly believe that the forum is bigger than any one member...that we all have a part in it and those parts are equal.

Re: something wrong.

A while ago I used to make my early morning coffee and sit by my computer, opening up Accy Web and relaxing with a good read to start the day, joining in when I had something to say. Great debates, lots of interesting stuff. Sharing ideas. A platform to discuss issues with a wider circle of people than we would normally meet in our everyday lives. A true forum. What do I open up to these days – no need to answer that.

Where is everyone? Is football the one-and only interest that so many have. Even the subject of COVID is no longer discussed. Lots of things going on in the world but lately the main contributors to this site only seem to have space for the round ball in their lives and in their discussions, almost to the point that nothing else seems to matter.

If the last comment stirs up some indignant responses well Hallelujah! – I make no apology because this posting will not have been in vain.

Re: something wrong.

think the problem is people have been worn down by covid, the dingy divers and afganistan. we can have our opinions, but at the end of the day there seems to be less and less we can do about the situation but moan. we are voices in the wilderness. however our voices seem to be the majority of the population but rearely we can get a look in. you would have thought corbyn had won the last election when this country is more bothered about any minority and smaller the minority the better, than its majority of citezans whose views do not count anymore. this weekend will be interesting as the greenies go on rampage with very little done about it.

Re: something wrong.

You cannot be indignant about the truth Dorothy.
The truth is that there seems to be no stomach for discussion....well unless it is about football.
MH....since when did it matter who was listening or not listening to the man in the street...oh yes and the woman too.
Forums like this have been a valuable community sounding board, but this does not appear to have much interest for those below pension age.
The younger folk are more into other platforms....twitter, instagram, WhatsApp and it is very unlikely that Accyweb has anything that draws them to it.
Another thing is that people are increasingly wary of saying the wrong thing.....the world has become a very strange place....well, no not the world but the people in it.
There are those who could take offence at Jack and Jill going up the hill....they’d be telling us that this rhyme was sexist, colonialist, not green or some other such nonsense.

I am really quite glad to be at the tail end of a very happy and productive life.....but can see nothing like a ‘future’ for those who come after us.

Re: something wrong.

[QUOTE=taddy;1250665]I think that I may have to bore some Accy Webbers with "tales from my Allotment" or even articles about my coin collecting hobby. Yours, still the Luddite.[

Ok, here goes, I will be going onto my allotment this afternoon just to tidy up and add compost/manure where needed. It has been a good year; over half a hundred weight of three variety's of potatoes,two hundred Onions, ten pounds of Strawberries, fourteen pounds of Blackcurrants, sixty plus Apples,60 plus sticks of Rhubarb, four pounds of "shelled Peas, Three pounds of Green Beans, they are really( French) Beans but I don't like using the word, over two hundred Plum Tomatoes, Thirty Garlic bulbs and just to finish off I still have twenty Brussel Sprout plants to harvest in a couple of months.

I think thats enough to bore all Accy Webbers for a while, Stay safe, Stay happy, Your's, the Luddite.
