Something I find difficult to get my head around is that the ratio of views to replies is 6 to 1. OK, some of those may be bots, but it means that some people must go there just to look, rather than participate.

Well, as “which threads are boring” threads go, this one actually turned out to be pretty fun.
I hate when that happens.

That's one of the most interesting ones for a while! Not that I'm particularly interested in Johnson, but I love all the amateur detective work it's inspired.

Absolutely. But there are four or five posters who are addicted to it and keep bumping it up to the top. I don't begrudge them their fun (...well not much :twisted: ) but it's mystifying for the rest of us.

I think it's a bit of a case of what else is there to post on? The board is hardly spoilt on choice for topics.

You must be very jaded!
Even the 'post photos of your nail clippings' thread is more enthralling than 'Word Association'.

I know the days when we really got stuck into talking about music are long gone, but I never thought a thread speculating on the authenticity of a photo of some old blues dude would make five pages!

See?

So you complain all fucking year long about people not starting new threads but, as soon as they do, you jump down their throats and/or take the piss by labelling it the most boring thread.

It's no wonder people don't post anymore, is it?
