Questions for some of you non chunners out there. Why are you on this forum? Not meaning this is a rude way. Just a sincere question. While some of you seem to actually want to help the threads by giving a new insight from a different prospective. Some of you seem to just want to disrupt the discussion.

@jobo that doesn't answer my question. A thread actually directed at you and you still manage to divert the subject. Why are you here on this forum.

Speaking just for myself, but that's just not how I read this forum. I always click on Active Topics, and then just read and respond to whatever strikes my fancy. I would say it is pretty common that I will have no idea what particular subforum a thread is in, unless it's salient to that thread or to my post.

I'm here to talk with other WC people about WC.
I just don't understand being so bored in life that you best form of amusement comes from getting on a forum just to troll people with typos

I'm not saying that only WC should comment on the threads. What I'm annoyed with are the ones coming into threads with the general purpose to shut down the conversation. I love hearing opinions from other styles and thats part of what this forum is for!

Because they got ran off. They got annoyed trying to have a conversation just for someone to butt in about how bad WC is and how were all wasting our time.
And i called you here to call you out. If you want to comment on this threads by all means do it. But actually put fourth an opinion or add something to the conversation. No one is interested in anyone's personal opinion

well they didnt get run off, theres lots of heated debate on the use or otherwise of all the arts, no one singled chunners out for special treatment, karate gets a hard time as well.

its just chunners seem very very prickly, and react badly to even very fair observations, its like they know the criticism is right and just dont want to here it

Go through the thread about maxiums and tell me how that was 'fair observation'.
You don't make observation or ask questions. You give your opinion that wc sucks. Okay got it. Heard you. Now ether contributed to the threads with legitimate insights or move on

Ah you're right. It blows. And I'm sure you do have some very great insight on a lot of things. And no I can't keep you from posting. But the rules on the thread do clearly state not to troll or disrupt the thread. Which you do. All I'm asking is to post ONLY when you have something of meaning to say.

Ill make a suggestion, since the Ignore feature has come up in another thread or two recently.

Some people just want to get a rise out of others. If everybody were to stop interacting with them altogether, stop even acknowledging that they exist, and they cant get a rise out of anyone, cant even get anyone to respond to them in any way, they might eventually just go away.

It does take a group commitment, though. In the meantime, on an individual level, it still makes life better.

I do want to hear from you. A lot of times a different opinion makes the thread better and steers it in a good direction. But more often then not youve just kill the discussion. And i have reported your replies on the last few threads.
No I'm not mad at all, just disappointed. It sucks that we have a platform here for people of different thoughts and training to come together and discuss and a few people can ruin it all. Im just disappointed in where this forum went. Use to be full of great things to read.
I'm not mad at you @jobo just trying to breathe some new life into a forum that's more of less dead. And to do that the problems need to be addressed.

Coordinating the effort is the issue. And not everyone agrees that ignoring X is the best way to handle it. So therein lies the trouble.

I know that my experiences here have vastly improved once I put certain people on ignore. When it becomes clear that you just cannot have meaningful and positive interactions with certain people, then its time to stop all interaction with them.
