As a regular poster here over 2 and a half years!, probably many other posters are over me...!!!!!

I honestly don't worry at all, Life is life and what we all think is different to all others IMO.

But I do notice in the forum section as well the other main topics on SN, is that some weeks are way better than others.

Why is this!

I know now it's Stu!
He's getting paid peanuts exclamation.
Maybe he deserves a little something comma something questionmark fullstop

Our brains are too small at the moment to comprehend the reality of what's happening in our forests . We're only just waking up so to speak . The big problem is we think we know everything, we are specks of dust on a timeline and we know nothing .

I think you might find an inverse relationship between the quality of the surf and the quality of the contributions.

I think it's got to do with subject matter also, while we are all surfers and most articles and topics are surfing related we all have an interest in different surfing related subjects and articles.

Please Stunet give me an ignore button for Talking Turkey, Shatners Basoon, Dale Cooper, Factotum, Pupkin, and any new fake profile he decides to create.

Onya Welly, you seem like a good guy and a cruiser, at least that's how you come across.

Why is this!"

Even more importantly, why does the teflon phantom poo exist? You know you crapped.... There's shit on the paper.... But no turd.....
And why do sausage skins break even when you've punctured them with a fork?
And why do 67.4% of pizza shops that deliver always forget the anchovies when you have paid for and ordered anchovies?

Don't get me started on retractable seat belts or electronic car windows.....

To hazard a guess, Melted Welly, and going purely from the example directly above, perhaps the answer lies in the failure to adhere to a medication regime? Getting dates and correct dosages and the like mixed up?

Hey welly mate, i have thought this to when the sn forums kind of absorbed me, made me feel important, angry, sad, like my voice was being heard, or my say mattered.
Then I realised I was becoming a douche. Like every 5 mins I was checking sn to see if someone replied to my bait, comment, rebute.
Then I thought What Da Fuck?
now i just actually check the wave details then bail..its fucking social media! Go and search forums and they are all the same...same type of crew
They say kids need less computershit and more climbing trees. Well...its the same here...funny and embarassing when you look back on it..some of the shit we type isnt representative of who we are..

Noticably when theres fuckwits trolling the forums it makes a big difference to the amount of genuine participants who might want to discuss things . As soon as these gimps are on their personal quests I just take a break from my studies as a student of SN

Yo! Dawg Enough mate, all good;)

This is exactly what Caml was talking about!, who cares?

Quote Camel " As soon as these ....... are on their personal quests I just take a break from my studies as a student of SN"

Awesome answer IMO, as I'm similar, I feel.

I'm studying as well Caml;)

Except when it comes to myself/ home, then I will vent. Thats where my study has already been done! apart from some GIMP picking it apart, which they know nothing of! Which has happened in the past on here (SN), with Norchock?
Inebriation does not help also. My Apologies.

Barley was talking about social media above and IMO, he is right in some way? But, I dare say, how far you want to take social media. I myself aren't on Facebook, Instagram, Surfline, RealSurf something etc etc and the likes.

I Enjoy the banter here on SN, it's the only social media apart, from "Yowie Hunters" and it has taken a couple of years, to appreciate well acknowledged posters, with great knowledge far beyond myself. Which, I've grown much respect for and appreciate.Thank You;)
Things take time, I guess..

I myself HAVE, I wonder if anyone hasn't?????
Have learnt so much from this Website (SN) over the years.
Weather, swells, periods, climates, ear infections, places to go surfing, maps, fetches, cyclones, ENSO, Southey, Southern Ocean Storms, SAM's, Synoptics, WAMS, Meters, Feet, Surfing reefs, Sand bank structures, sand flow, C R O W D S , soul surfing, ID's knowledge on Indo, Camel's persistent questions that get answers and theories, from his own journey,Stu's/ FR's knowledge and well spoken literature, Different music;), Different writing, Actually reading for me!!! Was years before I read? Shapes of SURFBOARDS, different surfboards to ride in different waves, Locations, Storms, Ben/Craig's knowledge of weather/swell arriving and more? Reef break from here to arsehole! Secret locations and so on and on and on...

Sorry for the banter.
Cheers
Over and out :-)

Hopefully not out Welly.

I like your contributions and agree, so much to be gleaned from this site especially from the articles and regular contributors built up over a number of years.

As for the trolls, well that's another story.....

PS You forgot snowboarding even though this technically is a surfing site.

Cheers, welly..... Anyone who couldn't interpret my post above as a bit of light hearted banter is welcome to think what they like.... If they consider that "trolling", then fine... Was just trying to have a laugh in a "not so serious thread"....

We all have our moments.... I also think the written word can be taken wrongly... I could say "fuck off "... Now depending how I meant it, and how you interpret it can be 2 totally different things...... But if you and I are sitting together after a surf in the park at burleigh, we watch a guy pull into a barrel... He doesn't come out.... You look at me and say "he should've made that".... I look back at you and say "fuck off"..... But you see the smirk on my face.... So saying "fuck off" face to face, you can see the intent behind the "fuck off"......
For example, I was in a playful mood when I wrote that post above..... If we were all sitting around having a rant and a shit stir, some would've laughed, some would said, "ya fuckn dick, sheepy".....

But the essence of your thread........ It's life..... The SN forum has it's ups and downs, it's good days, bad days, some folk you gel with , some you don't..... Some weeks are more interesting thanks to outside influences..... Some are boring as bat shit.....
It's life, bro....
