I'm sad to see what seem to be an increase in the number of one subject forum users , typically of an extremist point of view of a political/religious nature ( from either end of the political/religious spectrum ). There seems to be a decreasing number of people with the ability to speak eloquently on varying subjects , which is a shame since those kind of posters bring tolerance , humour and insight into the world.

Where is the SF version of Stephen Fry I wonder..... :help:

I think the OP is a bit of a sweeping generalisation - there are ony a minority of wallies who post on one suject only. I have many opinions......

I was referring to an apparant recent increase in this sort of forum user , it was not aimed at the majority of existing users , as I believe my original post made clear.

You remind me of this quote:

The wise man speaks when he has something to say, the fool when he has to say something.

You certainly do speak on a lot of subjects indeed. :P

See there's an issue. I'm with you in maintaining that OP stands for original post but there are so many on here who use "OP" to refer to the poster of said post i.e. the original poster. You couldn't make it up!

That's because they only have one tool to knock in a nail - a slegehammer. The media and public opinion are the greatest tools in winning a war, more so that nuclear weapons. That's why they are trying to change public opinion by banging on about the same subjects.

There are plenty of users who just post about one subject, I don't think its a big deal really, let them.
