Too much riffraff being allowed to wantonly post insults and trash in both forums, especially in the Rum Shop. Some of you witnessed the demise of this board's predecessor and similar boards such as soc.culture.caribbean, rec.sports.cricket.

"Big" posters are posting less and less - a very bad sign for a place like this. Those who value this board need to help to reduce the insults and trash. Otherwise, it would not be long before the board becomes yet another internet graveyard.

You might be right.

And you might be right again. I hope better sense, or some well-placed banning, prevails.

It would also help if decent posters drown out the trash by posting more. So, all you don't cuss Black and Casper!

It's been about fifteen years i stopped posting in the Rum Shop after making a similar plea as you.

My guess is it's only gotten worse.

This room aint much better ... people think it's more beneficial to post lies and fabrications to seem important than anything real and substantial.

Like any business, you need capital to make improvement.

We are all fortunate to have this cricket forum, it should be supported.

Sorry to hear. I hardly feel inspired to put much effort into posting anything substantial in the Rum Shop these days. It is truly hard to imagine why the admins are not banning some very obvious destructive elements there.

Because these places can only thrive on negativity... so when money is involved.... sex sells.

To ban obvious trouble makers in the Rum Shop? I think I could clean up that place for free in 1 week.

As I said, guys like Black, Casper, Ayenmol and a few others keep this place going. I particularly enjoy Ayenmol's religious and sports interests and insights.

Many here in the Back Room still contribute well to the right topics, but the Rum Shop is a much different story. It is just a very small handful that contributes anything of value there. Openning is one of the few.

I have never seen so many people fight among themselves while claiming to support the same team....Philadelphia Eagles fans .... one of the most notorious fan bases on this Planet, do not fight among themselves like these people.

I visit football and cycling boards, none involve the vitriol exhibited here.

Not One! Even among rivals.

It says a lot about the challenges we face as a group, under the cultural term "West Indian", or "Caribbean". Some individual territories also have serious internal divisions. We know them!

Then you should be speaking to Arawak, he is the head of the site.
Idi has been gone almost a decade ago.

Very true. And even Ryan (Shopkeeper), one of the founders, gave up on this board. I use to have this board as one of my main site to check into everyday, but now, I cringe doing it..
It has decayed into filt by posters who flaunt their vulgarity for their waving supporters to consume their filt and crave for more.
Gone R the posters to whom we could have lively discussions and banter with. sad

That is continuing unabated because the admins don't ban the obvious culprits, and that, in turn, occurs because the admins have their own cliques that they support.

It is just a matter of time before you start to try to clog up this thread with crap too. Not to mention, you always become racist, which is not surprising for cowards like you.

Why you and a few others have not been banned for good as yet just shows how run down this place has become.
