The signal-to-noise-ratio on the forums is lopsided, with the noise...

    overwhelming the signal to a frustrating and depressing degree. Does anyone have any suggestions to fix this?

      Ignore those who are making a noise, they will go away when there is nobody to bait, and only sensible discussion is tolerated and answered.

      Trolls hate silence.

      Didn't know there was such a thing. Have you recently purchased a fresh stash of cannabis?

        I don't know whether to interpret this comment as just another one of your flippant non sequiturs, or whether you were (helpfully?) trying to provide us with an example of the very noise that I lament.

        I suppose it could be both.

            I think I'm going to start following Aguasilver's sensible advice, forthwith.

              Works for me, TM awarded rosettes, I just ignore, far simpler!

              Where is TM again, anybody know?

                TM?

                Ah! Troubled Man!

                  Indeed our mystery hubber with no hubs (apologies to 'man with no pants') who I find/found both amusing, irritating and sometimes cuttingly right!

                  But then he spoils it all by saying something stupid like....

                  Anyhow, enough Nancy Sinatra in the afternoon!

      Stop initiating all those religion threads.

        That's actually a constructive suggestion.

        Thanks. smile

          I agree, religion causes the noise imbalance, spirituality is where it's happening.

            Which makes these forums almost like a seance for most of the spiritually dead! smile

      I have to agree with you and my solution was not to follow. Now I just dip in and have a look around. This is a bit messy as you need time to scroll through the noise and pick up valid points.
