    What is up with the forums lately? Every day it's something new and hateful and just down right nasty. Why is race such a big issue? I just don't get it. I thought the purpose of the forums was to have fun and talk about interesting things. Instead all I see are bitchfests every day and it seems to be the same people bitching. Day after day after day. Come on people, lighten up and lets have fun. Life is too short for all this piss and vinegar. Smile for a change and be happy. icon_smile.gif

    It's interesting that you vent when you seem like a person that keeps their perspective to themselves. But would you care to detail your gripe of what's going on here in at least a 20 lined posting? I would actually be very interested in what you have to say.

    I haven't been here since 2008. I joined in Nov of 2012 but got pissed and left. I came back I think in Jan 2013. And the reason I don't post more is because I get pissed off at some of the things I read and when I respond I've been attacked. So I just read the forums daily and keep my opinions to myself. But the way things have been going I just thought I would try to bring some civility back into play. Is that so wrong? Feel free to crucify me for wanting a pleasant place to go and enjoy instead of a cesspool of hate.

    ETA member since 12/12/12
    ETA2 I get it now, the place has been going down hill since 08, gotcha.

    I would expect such a thread to be made by a Florida cracker.

    Because most of the RJ membership is comprised of liberal white Americans.

    Thanks for posting that.
    You'll probably be raked over the coals for trying to be constructive.
    This group meant a lot to me when I joined half a year ago
    I never had a peer group before.
    Now I have one foot out the door.
    I've already started packing up my profile.
    I don't want to be exposed to the hatred that is here every day.

    I knew they would come after me. I've gotten used to reading their shit so it won't bother me. And i'm not gonna sit back and take it either. Yes I'm a Florida Cracker and damn proud of it.

    I like RJ. Sure, sometimes people clash, but by and large the guys I interact with are thoughtful, intelligent, and humorous. I don't have many opportunities to travel, and even if I did I'd just be a tourist, so it's a chance to get viewpoints from gay men all over the world. I think many of us have a lot in common. I'd be really disappointed if it were to get shut down.

    Did your white ass used the term 'cracker'?

    Damn, that's a new level of white-on-white hate right there. icon_razz.gif

    If that bothers you so much, as you constantly obsess and bitch about, maybe you've come to the wrong site? I'm sure there must be a Fox News or Koch Teabagger-friendly social site you could join, and find contentment there, rather than disrupting this site. Clearly this is a bad match for you, by your own admission.

    One does have choices, and if you're so dissatisfied with Real Jock, as you claim you have been for years, your remedy is obvious. icon_biggrin.gif

    The first site I was on got shut down because there was too much arguing.
    And it wasnt 1/2 as vicious as here.
    We were devastated but here it's different. I think a lot of people would feel powerful if they got it shut down.

    You guys shouldn't complain. There is A LOT worse out there. As one who isn't quick to just roll over and take it, I know.

    Why are people so damn sensitive? Grow up!! Life is full of arguments and clashes between different peoples.

    We can't censor something or block it out because it's negative or whatever. That's just stupid. We need to have everything open and available. If it's negative then don't get into it and read the positive threads or make your own!!

    Our differences and the arguments are what make the world unique. If everyone was nice and there was no disagreement, it would be boring, trust me. Let people voice their negative or positive opinions. If it gets to you THAT much then you should be like most of RJers and not even pay attention to the forums.

    With the amount of men on here now, the men who use forums are actually not as much as you think. The regular forum posters are even less.
