    I think cliques to some extent are a natural thing in forums, particularly with older members who've known eachother for years......sometimes I don't think it's even an intentional thing, more just like minded people who gravitate together and become pretty tightly knit. As such they develope things like inside jokes and things of the like, and while it may never be the intent, it makes some people feel like they're on the outer. While I can say without a shadow of a doubt I've never really been a part of any cliques here, I've also never really felt excluded either......certainly no more or less then any other forum I've been to.

    People keep accusing us of being a clique. But we are all just friends, we chat most nights on and off the forum, know a lot about each other and all get on. Everyone is always welcome in chat no one else ever bothers. So obviously we are all pretty close so obviously some of our jokes spread out a little. Sure sometimes I can be accused of posting something that I think will amuse Nikki, Stu or Adam or something but I mean why else post if not to amuse my pals. I am sure Neil posts horror friends for whoever likes those.

    Also (apart from that silconia thread, which if all the posts wernt deleted you would see were not started by the gang) we keep our garbage contained in here. Also some accusation of not posting about Red Dwarf to much. I have been on this forum about 15 years now...I don't really have much else to say about series 1-8. Also I don't like to post to much about the new series because I like to form my own opinion and dont want any negativity online to sour me on it.

    Nikki, Stu, Adam, Dick, Abe and Smurfy and all are always there talking most night, we all discuss things and have obviously grown attached. So when one of us is attacked we of course stick up a bit. Nikki and me and of course be accused of fueling each other a bit but to be honest we have never just lashed out on anyone that hasn't started it on us. You all accuse us of bullying neil old and things. Sure we may give him the business for posting non stop horror threads when we post a lot of spam threads but most of us are always a little miffed at neil old because of some offensive opinions he has had in the past and offensive pictures he has had. He has been the only one warned so far for a reason. Also we pick on each other far more than anyone thinks we pick on anyone else. Not a day goes past where Stu isnt mocked for his shiny head, or Pembers for slinging it all over town or Abe for being a spoon loving maniac.

    Just to lay out while we are here. Do we in joke a bit? Of course. But if we wernt here there would be no posts on the forum except for Neil Old horror threads. Also Ant E is hilarious.

    I just wanna say I wasn't saying anyone is or isn't a clique, I just mean that in a forum setting the formation of cliques is natural. As I said earlier, I've never really felt I was being excluded.

    Don't you bring my arse into this :sulk:
    I agree with what @Shroud thinks of this. You know it's serious when @Shroud writes a thoughtful essay response.

    Not accusing you of being Deepspace, but you're definitely at least one other account on here. You can't tell me you just happened to be passing by and saw all this :lol:

    No, Ant. It looked like you'd had a hissy fit and was leaving the forum because someone had you on ignore.
