    There are pleasant exceptions but my general rule for any forum is if it makes it to page 3 it's no longer worth reading.
    If anything that rule is applied far less on here than anywhere else. That's just how forums are.
     
  4. Thing is, I don’t think TFF is too big or too many members.

    Most threads are populated by the same dozen or so people repeating the same things.

    The thing that makes a good thread is people chipping in that actually have stake in the topic or have genuine knowledge. The inevitable antipodean circle jerk, or the drone of Jeremy Clarkson type advisors/agronomists makes any thread pretty boring quickly.

    @Bossfarmer asks some really good questions that you think would be really relevant to a farming forum but gets shot down in flames with jealousy in a second by one of the above two groups of people.

    To be jealous of somebody, you have to covet what they have. What if you have enough of your own, just not in farming assets? This whole jealousy / farmer hate thing makes I larf.

    Except for the "How to remove a dead horse" thread, which has to be thread of the decade for me, and I still dont know how it was removed!
     
  14. Yes bossfarmer did ask some good questions, problem was quite often when someone asked him/her a question , he/she never answered or replied.

    TFF has become rather boring when, once, it was addictive.

    This is because, despite greater membership numbers, there's a steady attrition of the interesting, the experienced and the original.

    That explains why most threads degenerate into staid repetition by page 3 - those with something fresh to say are shouted down or simply discouraged by the unmitigated dullness of most of the views on offer.

    'Bwch a llo, bwch a llo', as The Duck would doubtless have observed.

    Jealous? That I would think is so far from the truth that you could get!

    No one does! Its one of the worlds great mysteries, destined to be forever shrouded in half truths and speculation, but never facts.

    Is basically virtually everything has already been discussed. Many many times. So its nothing new.
    I tend to just comment on a very few subjects of interest. If I'm not interested I keep quiet;)

  20. There’s not too many members just too many who are ‘members’ .
