I just need a forum where I can call R-Tape a bellend.
Perhaps this one will do.

R-tape, you're a bellend! :mrgreen:

Chortle! I've missed that, it's just not the same when Peter calls me one.

That lovey-dovey talk can be so annoying: sweetheart, honey, bellend, pumpkin . . . So much mush. Ugh. :roll:

:lol:

And now, the "bellend" is my word of the day. Tomorrow, I will google what "chortle" means. No big expectations on my side, have to say.

I know what "chortle" means but had to look in the online Cambridge Dictionary what a "bellend" is :lol:

I very much appreciate the compactness and clear focus of this forum. There is a relatively small number of sections that are clearly Spectrum (or computing) related. Personally I have no desire to discuss any other topics here.

The beginning of the decline of WoS can be traced directly to the addition of the chit-chat forum, so I'd rather avoid having one, thanks very much :D

I get there is no hunger for an off topic section for the forum, and respect the decision not to. Having said that, there were two topics in the last 6 months I would have liked to have got the opinion of, from other 'like minded' people of a certain age and demographic, and this forum would have been potentially a good place. Politics (of any sort) and religion would be a definite no-no, but my other subjects would have been electronic circuit questions (not Sinclair related), and electronic music production related - not 8 bit/chiptune/AY/SID - just a little bit of promotion for an album project I and some other producers released recently to benefit the NHS - and to rope others on here in if they were interested.

Just to put another view out there, I do appreciate the purity of SC otherwise.

also the chit chat will clog the "active topics" and other lists in "quick links" and i'm not sure if it's avoidable with this forum engine
