You know I realised today I have been a moderator of this Forum for a couple of years and never, not once, have I had to warn anyone, ban anyone or remove a post (might have got close with Billy a couple of times mind!) I think Syd has but, considering on most other forums it is a daily occurrence, it is a sure sign of the quality of our posters on here.

Give yourselves a huge pat on the back for being polite, thoughtful and generally a fantastic bunch Very Happy

I have banned Commo and Billy for short periods during their alcohol fueled days and some Newcastle fans looking for a fight.

But the quality of posters has never been a doubt, week by week I see posters give up and there is a reason for that.

My question is a simple one, "If for whatever reason people dont post or comment is it worth having the forum"?

I'd like it to continue but when certain frequent posters don't post it's very noticeable and very quiet. The forum must be providing me with something as I check it regularly. Is it providing other people with what they want or are they just using things like twitter and getting news from elsewhere?

A very true opening post H and thank you for making it. Syds post should also make those of us who do not support the forum by posting more, ashamed and guilty, I certainly feel that way so SYD I will make an effort to do my bit in supporting you and H . 

I'll start by declaring that I think you are a miserable old  old GIT. So there.  Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I was told that when we started winning that would happen but its gone quieter.

TBH I'm not moaning or even complaining, just pointing out facts, a forum is about posts and a Sunderland forum about Sunderland posts. I would love Vinkle, Silvers and others to say why they no longer post or post very little. Not to have a go at them but simply to understand.

I have to plead guilty to dropping off as a poster but access to our games is impossible since we lost our status and barely get a mention anywhere. The time difference is also a hindrance as I can barely add much new to a debate.

The none football side means I have a fair bit more to do around the place so idle time is a lot shorter than it used to be.

Well said H.

I get on daily when I am not on the drink or on holiday and find I normally kill posts. Most things have been said when most of you retirees have already had your say. Us younguns who still are gainfully employed get on here late and are usually the last posters.

Big thanks to Syd tho whose posts are normally very thought provoking.

PS, I agree with lesmac about you being a miserable git tho. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I don't post very often because many times someone else has said what I am thinking (yes, great minds do think alike) and I just think it is a waste of your time to repeat what has already been posted. But some times I feel this forum is in need of my words of wisdom or sparkling wit.

Having said that I must question why certain members are saying syd is a miserable old git.

I am sure that in just over a couple of weeks when the exciting transfer window opens the posts will be staggering in their volume and intensity. I check several times a day and would have a great void in my life without the news and banter on here so please all feel very appreciated.PS it is 8.40 am here and I am very sober.
