    Ah I'll have to create a couple of controversial threads in order to stir things up again! Thanks for the reminder.

    Yeah I don't care. AH is where the trolls and journos eak out their sad online existence. Good riddance.

    Your example about Reddit reminds me of the water charges days when people used to say "WE ALREADY PAY FOR WATER" or "MY CAR TAX PAYS FOR MY WATER"

    I dont like the format of Reddit, unfortunately, Boards seems to be letting itself fade away

    Any thread appropriate for current affairs should have never been allowed to be posted in After Hours to begin with since they are basically anti-craic vampires designed by windup merchants to exhaust you.

    Ya but that's what after hours used to be all about.

    Look at he "do men need a license" thread. There will be no craic or real debate and we all know straight off the bat what direction it's going to go and who is going to be driving it there.

    Anything involving Britain, The North, gender politics, race or Sinn Fein all have the their obsessed few posters shouting the same thing across multiple threads and subforums and make it a boring shouting match. The exact same stuff every thread

    Reddit isn't what it used to be.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,844 ✭✭✭ megaten

    Lol knew from the title it wouldn't be worth looking at.

    I'm not going to actually go back and do a survey of threads but I feel like you would get more threads that prompted people telling interesting stories and persepctives rather than just opinions. This is is me probably thinking at least 6 but probably closer to 8 years ago though.

    Not really interested in 'debates' as such. Its a college kids idea of what an interesting discussion is.

    Looking at the type of threads I'm talking about and the language used Im blaming the USA for a lot of the shte we have to listen to politics wise on Boards these days.
