    Just thought I'd jump on the rant bandwagon.

    To be honest, what really annoys me, is rant threads. Seems to be a new beef that someone has every day on here lately.

    Sure, some people here are a bit annoying, and a lot of threads are pointless (like this one), but we have rules my friends, if someone's not following them, hit the report button.

    Otherwise, live and let live.

    This is the lounge, and we should be able to discuss anything in here (as long as it doesn't break the rules).

    I'm sure most people here are advocates for the freedom of speech act and for Internet freedom in general. It's important shit.

    And if you really don't approve of a particular topic, just stay away from it.

    If you don't like rant threads, don't make a rant thread.

    It's usually clear in the title if something is a rant thread, nobody is forcing you to read them.

    I did something bad and now I'm apologizing. I hate that guy, he was mean to me. I hate the X-threads. Rep me here. bla bla.

    I see one common thing among all these kind of threads, you get repped (neg and pos), you get thanks, you get a few pages of answers then the thread dies, gets buried and nothing happens.
    Let the mods do their jobs. I'm sure that if they want help they'll ask for it.

    The trend will eventually die out and if it doesn't you'll have to learn to live with it because threads like this doesn't make any difference, except maybe let you vent and annoy other people who feel the same as you. Threads like this are also usually easy to spot, so take your own advice and just stay away from them mate.

    Not making argument, just saying. Sort of sticking up for you. You like your troll threads, others don't. I don't care, if its in the lounge.

    But I don't like it when you a beef with other member, that's why I neg rep you :)

    Spot on my friend.

    I come to BHW to learn. I rarely visit the lounge for the sake of it and only click through if something interesting comes up in the activity stream or if somebody in my friends list has made a post there. Sometimes the lounge can be a distraction but it serves a useful service and when you need a break it can be amusing.

    In the UK we have a TV program called "Points of View", it comprises of viewers complaints of shows they have sat through and watched. Rather than change the freaking channel they will sit through a show just so they have ammunition for their complaint.
    Their complaints are often hysterical because of this stupidness.

    So if people come across a lounge post they don't like then just MOVE ON. (Or complain about it because to be honest I don't really care.)

    This post of mine is a typical lounge post as it makes little sense, has no point to it and didn't make me any money but that is why we need the lounge. The lounge should be a free for all, where anything goes (within the rules) and no restrictions should be placed on it.

    The only thing I have seen become more frequent are personal attacks between and against some members, this is the only thing I think we can do with out. If people want to make things personal they should do it through PM's and not in public.

    As I read the last rant thread, I thought to myself "Im going to start my own anti rant thread" So thanks for getting there before me.

    The Lounge is getting bashed lately. A good lounge thread is worth 50 follow me to $8 a day threads.

    People say you shouldnt be wasting your time in the lounge....you need to focus up and earn money. Personally I am flat out busy working 15 hours most days(and earning money). After an hour of emailing and phoning customers I take 5 minutes out to chill at BHW..I like to visit the lounge.....people that dont like the Lounge dont have to go there.

    Theres been some good suggestion threads.......but enough already....Dont be posting some plan to completely change the useabilty of the forum just because you had a flash of inspiration.

    I've had enough of the "Things are getting worse around here", "its not like it used to be", "its turning into DP or WF"........A lot of these comments are from guys with two month old accounts !

    You have no right to be talking about "back in my day" unless you are 300 years old.

    Essentially , what Im saying is enough of the negativity. The forum is great.......could always be improved but unconstructive bashing is getting tiresome.

    I'm not using cheap tricks.

    I still consider myself a serious beginner at SEO. So I mostly read other areas of blackhatworld, and put things into practice. My favourite thread at the moment is Danielos MNS case study (sorry if that's spelt wrong).

    So when I want to relax I like to come in the lounge and read some pointless threads for a laugh :)

    And sometimes contribute some pointless threads:-/
