    Thread posts on the first page go back 2 weeks!

    I remember it like this....

    http://web.archive.org/web/20091020173858/http://dnbforum.com/forumdisplay.php?f=9

    What happened? Has facebook and twitter taken over? Is it Skynet? How can she slap? Can I has cheeseburger? If two trains leave the station at the same time, one heading west and the other east. The westbound train travels 20 miles per hour slower than the eastbound train. If the two trains are 900 miles apart after 5 hours, what is the rate of the westbound train?

    So many questions.

    Crazy times, getting in sweats trying to keep up with multiple conversations going off at the same time. Furious typing. I miss the drama if anything, people used to complain about all the arguments, but it was like a soap opera, people kicking off, left, right and centre. Jesus we don't even get any decent loonies passing through anymore, or resilient trolls, get banned and come storming back with 5 new usernames. You flame someone now they start crying and you feel bad for 5 minutes, old ones you flamed and that was your afternoon sorted trying to defend yourself against some loon as the rest of the forum looked on seeing if you had the balls to defeat the loon.

    But I think we're down by at least 90% of wafflers, no content posted in waffle is a problem, you cant post in a thread that aint there. If someone does make a thread it derails within 5 posts and we're just chatting too each other as theres finally somewhere to post. Yeah Twitter and Facebook is the issue, shall we forum raid them, fuck them right up

    well whenever I make a thread about a random video that I chanced upon facebook 4 posts later @logikz starts HAEHAEHAEHAEHAEHAEEHEHAEHAEHAEHEing and derailing the thread to the extent it would make @Moskit look concise like he's the conclusion to an essay

    then @Dannyboy93 jumps in on the convo bigging karl up, @jmzmaloney posts something actually remotely funny @IV4 joins and the thread is successful

    oh and either one of @DeeGun and @ScottyEightSix tell @Dagz to shut up

    The real reason waffle is quiet is the world we live in. Young ladies are not handing out blozzers to everyone in sight at festivals anymore.

    We can't make news Sirus

    I think age is a factor personally, I literally haven't got the time, energy & patience to devote or quantify sitting on the internet for 6 + hours a day...

    I also think it has a lot to do with people being total fucking pussies, the notion of banter online has been completely lost, people just cry like 13 year old girls with a skinned knee n shit & call "troll" or whatever... So it takes the fun out of having a jokey/derogative/heated convo or even argument with somebody.

    Also, the ethic of the forum has changed, it used to be ok to post nsfw, but now, again as like my above statement, people are just far too sensible & judgemental to even let a slight amount of childish/base humour enter their "oh so too cool for school" realm.

    To summarise.

    CANCER.

Im like hmmm songs mad but i turn to the screen and think... woah this girl is hot how the fuck did i not notice this before? She is actually a goddess like im completly in love with her now. And i remember my dad said like 15 years ago "good looking woman that" i was like aye whatever dad go fkn drink some brandy n faw asleep eh!

Ill leave the room on this note and never appear again... Kids dont take the piss out yer dad hes got it rough man and dont tell my son...
