    Hi all

    If your friend was looking for a forum for gay people, would you recommend RealJock?

    If you're thick skinned and don't take it too serious: sure.

    Sometimes my straight buddy comes over and I show him some of the threads that have insane flame wars just so he can see some of the brutality here. It's entertainment for both of us.

    My friends on RJ who don't post or look at the forums seem pretty happy.

    I think there's a huge number of members who may have browsed the forums, decided they were useless...but still keep returning to look at the hotties and their profiles.

    If he has a sharp tongue then yes, let him sign up. I wouldn't mind sitting back and watching more flame wars play out

    Way back when I first joined, I would have, but definitely wouldn't now. RJ has gone down the shitter since then, for a myriad of reasons. I barely even log in anymore, much less post...

    RJ is now overrun with the essentially unemployed, bored...way too much time on their hands types.

    Two years ago RJ was filled with guys who regularly posted but they didn't live on the site. They had interesting lives and something to say when they did post.

    i used to run a local gay forum for rabble rousers called "the asbestos list" you had to be able to handle the flames to be approved to rant on it.

    This.

    I tell folks of all kinds about RealJock all the time. "HaHa! Good one!" they say. And we laugh and laugh and then go have cheesecake, ribs, or cocktails.

    It can be an entertaining place, like a visit to a prison ward or 4chan.

    I don't spend as much time here as I used to. There seems to be less serious and civil discourse, and more asshattery. Most of trolling I don't see anymore because I have a well filled block/ignore list.

    There is ancient treasure burried deep in the forums if one is willing to go digging. Just like the little optimistic boy said when placed in a room full of turds, "Yay! With all of this horse$shit, there's got to be a pony in here somewhere!"

    Perhaps a rebranding as "SurRealJock"?

    So what other gay forums would the forum-haters suggest?

    In fact I did have suggested couple of my gay friends. But that was long time ago when RJ used to be much better than it is now.

    They didn't took it seriously and neither did I.
